Don't say goodbye
I promise everything will be alright
Don't leave me, I'm sorry
I'll fix this if it costs me my life
I'm going to make this right

A type of episode that centers around a Break-Up/Make-Up Scenario: two characters suddenly start feuding with each other, either over a minor matter that gets blown out of proportion, or sometimes for seemingly no reason at all. Sometimes, another character will try to get the two feuding characters to make up by putting together some sort of crazy scheme (i.e. writing fake apology letters), but there is actually a 90% chance that the scheme will fail, and the feud intensifies further From Bad to Worse. In the end, the two characters will invariably put behind their silly feud to help their friends in some kind of trouble (if not that, then expect them to stop fighting because of an Enemy Mine instead). An Aesop about putting behind your troubles usually will soon follow afterward.

They might be feuding over a common love interest, or perhaps due to hometown prejudices, but sometimes the two may feud so long that, in the end, they can't remember what it was about.

Alternatively, two longtime friends get mad and breakup over some random bad event (often, a Girl of the Week can be the cause of such a conflict). Kids' shows seem to love this one, as The Power of Friendship is the backbone of their group dynamics.

This often leads to their other friends getting into an argument and/or and fight against each other, and taking sides. Much commonly, there's always a time where both sides have to reconcile and apologize to each other, which happens at the end of each episode in particular.

Sometimes a Merchant of Menace makes a few bucks by selling weapons to both sides, continuing and escalating the fight to fatten his own pockets.

If the conflict seems too reminiscent of a lovers' quarrel, Homoerotic Subtext may ensue.

Compare Achilles in His Tent. Not to be confused with episodes of the Feud.

    Anime and Manga 
  • There was episode of Cardcaptor Sakura called "Sakura and Kero's Big Fight" where Sakura gets mad at Kero for destroying her desk drawer. They get into an argument that Kero runs away. Only when Sakura rescues Kero from a Clow Card, she makes the drawer his own bedroom and ends up with him destroying the bed and they start another fight as the episode ends.
  • An episode of Digimon Data Squad had Marcus and Agumon get into a fight which results in Agumon hiding inside Marcus' digivice for most of the episode. When Marcus is unable to defeat a BlackGarurumon that's rampaging through the city, Agumon finally comes to the rescue and everything is sorted out once again.
  • In Girls und Panzer, this happens twice during the prequel manga, Little Army, between Miho's childhood friends. The first time, Emi insults Hitomi, angering Hitomi's long time friend Chihiro, and causing the newly-formed tankery team to break apart until Miho talks to each of them. The second time, Emi's saying that she hates Maho angers Miho to the point at which she says that she hates Emi, a gesture Miho immediately regrets, but which results in Emi giving her the cold shoulder for a while.
  • Fridge Logic reveals that this is practically all that happens in Conrad and Yozak's friendship after Yuri turns up in Kyou Kara Maou!.
    • The first time, it's basically Yozak being cynical and jealous and Conrad being his psychotically loyal self, but after that we get a mind-controlling mountain of hate and the... DaiShimaron thing. These two have some of the best fights in the series, all swords with no magic, but it's kind of sad. Before Yuri came they don't seem to have fought at all. If Fighting Your Friend wasn't reserved for a certain video-game situation, it'd be made for them.
    • The reason it's Fridge Logic is because, the first time Conrad threatens to kill Yozak in the anime (if he ever puts Yuri in danger again), we don't know they're lifelong best friends. Jeepers. Puts a little more depth into the face Yozak makes there.
  • There was an episode of the Little Lulu anime where Tubby and Willy were feuding against each other every time they met up with each other. The reason they were feuding was because the indian chief suits that they bought at the store looked exactly alike, which was what ignited their feud in the first place. Even more insightful that the episode itself was based on a Little Lulu comic that had nearly the same plot.
  • Little Witch Academia OVA, The Enchanted Parade features Akko and her friends working on a festival though she ends thinking about herself and gets mad at her friends making her not having their help.
  • In Moriarty the Patriot, John Watson and Sherlock Holmes spend The Two Detectives fighting and Sherlock works alongside Professor Moriarty to solve a murder instead.
  • Negima! Magister Negi Magi: Asuna and Negi do this, except Negi immediately feels really badly and keeps trying to apologize, whereas Asuna got over it quickly enough but didn't want to admit it. Not that they've been friends for long but she's probably only his second friend and the one he trusts most.
  • In Chapter 21 of New Game!, Aoba and Nene have a fight after Nene expresses her concerns over Aoba working too hard at her job, something that Aoba brushes off while saying that Nene is easygoing. They spend the chapter fuming and avoiding each other. They make up by the end.
  • In Osomatsu-san, "Accident?" has this between Osomatsu and Choromatsu after the former accidentally walks in on the latter jerking off; this animosity eventually spreads to the rest of the brothers.
  • Ouran High School Host Club- The Twins Fight: Hikaru and Kaoru get into an epic argument over how they're tired of always looking alike and they drag the rest of the club with them. In this case, there is no Zany Scheme the others try to plan to get them to make up. Also, it's futher subverted, as the twins were just acting all along because they were bored!
  • Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt: "Catfight Club", between Panty and Stocking after Panty steals Stocking's pudding.
  • Pokémon:
    • In one episode called "The Bicker, The Better", Ash and May get into an argument and argue for almost all of the episode. Not only that, but Jessie and James ALSO get into a fight! But being beaten by a couple who're obsessed with love and their Nidoqueen/Nidoking combo did NOT help. In the end, though, Ash and May eventually make up.
    • Two episodes, "The Ol' Bare and Switch" and "Noodles! Roamin' Off!", have Team Rocket arguing and getting mad at each other that they decide to breakup. In the end, they realize that no matter how they argue, they should stay a team.
    • This also happens to Ash and Iris in "The Path That Leads To Good-bye", when they blame each other for simple things like failing to catch a Dunsparce or berries being too sour. They eventually break off their friendship and head off in opposite directions, but they soon realize that they completely overeacted for a petty reason and started missing one another. So at the end, after they drove off Team Rocket, they apologize to each other, and they stay as friends.
  • While Plot-Mandated Friendship Failure usually happens in many Pretty Cure series, The Movie of Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash★Star slaps a Feud Episode out of nowhere. Many fans pretty much declare the movie skippable because of it.
  • In an episode of the 1990s Sailor Moon anime, "Usagi Abandoned: The Falling-Out of the Sailor Guardians", features the Sailor Guardians getting mad at each other that one of the villians took a picture of it and it gets shown to public. Rei and Usagi especially get mad at each other. The team had a plan that they pretend that Sailor Moon quits the team because of the argument.
  • Tamagotchi: Episode 118 is about Moriritchi and Anemoriritchi getting into a fight, causing the former to move to Lovelitchi's house. Lovelitchi and a few others try to help the two to stop fighting.
  • Most of Chapter 31 of Asteroid in Love, animated in the ninth episode is about a minor argument between Mira and Ao on Ao's first day living in the Konohata household.

    Asian Animation 
  • Happy Heroes: Episode 10 of Season 7 is a variation on the trope. Nearly everyone in the city is fighting with each other for no apparent reason... because Big M. has set up a machine that causes rival ambassadors Wang and Miao to have their negative feelings projected onto others whenever they're quarreling, so the problem lies in the Supermen getting them to stop arguing so that everyone else will stop too.
  • There was an arc of Hello Kittys Stumped Village where Batz-Maru, Pompompurin, and My Melody play tricks on Cinnoman Roll and Hello Kitty that their friends get mad at them. In the end, they forgive each other and are so happy that everyone cries Tears of Joy.
  • The Lamput episode "The Split" is about unintentional injuries sustained while chasing after Lamput causing the docs to get into a fight and separate. Lamput goes to get them to reunite, but not without difficulty since the docs just ignore each other. In the end, the annoyances caused by Lamput is enough to get Fat Doc and Slim Doc to get back together and go to catch him once more.
  • In Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf: Joys of Seasons episode 30, Tibbie and Jonie get into an argument over who should pretend to be the mother of Tibbie's toy doll. The argument ends with the toy doll breaking, which makes Tibbie sad and causes her to tell Jonie she doesn't want to play with her anymore. Weslie, Paddi, and Sparky decide to come up with a plan to bring them back together.

    Comic Books 
  • Asterix and the Roman Agent: Caesar sends an agent, Tortuous Convolvulus, to the Gaulish village. He is a natural troublemaker who can cause dissension and stir up fights between anyone, and soon nearly the entire village is feuding. Even Asterix and Obelix get angry at each other... for about four panels.
  • This was a major plot point in Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics) between Sonic and Tails: Sonic had started going out with Fiona Fox, unaware the young hero had a major crush on her since falling in love with her robotic double way back when. Sonic's constant talk about her just made things worse even after she pulled a Face–Heel Turn and partnered up with Scourge the Hedgehog. It finally boiled over when Tails decided to help his recently-returned parents in trying to change the government while Sonic sided with the royalty.

    Fan Works 
  • In One Year, this happens between two of Yu Narukami's old friends, the athletic Kaoru and the studious Kenji, who have very different skillsets and ideas on whether their success is due to talent or hard work. Tensions between them come to a head after Kaoru is removed from the team, resulting in a heated argument and their not speaking to each other for a week.
  • Pokémon: Equestrian Adventures: The Camp Everfree arc can count as a "Feud Arc" between Flash and Twilight. They spend most of the arc constantly arguing and trading insults with each other, to the point where they almost decide to stop traveling together. Though before the end of the arc, they both realize that they have both been acting like jerks to each other and reconcile, reaffirming their friendship together.

  • The conflict between Herald Dirk and Herald Kris is a major plot point in the first Heralds of Valdemar trilogy. Plays out interestingly, first, because it was deliberately provoked by a scheming Evil Chancellor, and secondly, because the two friends were much more closely bonded than he had anticipated and were able to overcome their differences.
  • In the Rainbow Magic series, Juliet the Valentine Fairy's book is like this; Rachel and Kirsty are compelled to argue for almost all of it, only patching things up with the return of the magic candy box.

  • Degrassi: The Next Generation seems to like this trope:
    • Happened a couple of times with Emma and Manny in season 3. First in "U Got The Look" when Manny gets her infamous makeover and starts flirting with JT while she is interested in another guy. Emma tells Manny she's leading JT on. Manny then tells Emma to either mind her own business or stop talking to her. They make up pretty quickly after this, but their bigger fight comes later that season in "Against All Odds" when Emma doesn't approve of Manny helping Craig cheat on Ashley. They don't talk to each other for what appears to be several months in-universe. Things between the two are finally patched up when Emma helps Manny out with her pregnancy. They also got into some arguments where they temporarily stopped speaking to each other in seasons 4, 5, and 6. However, these fights didn't last for too long.

  • Doctor Who: In "Father's Day", Rose and the Doctor have a fight about how Rose just destroyed the time stream, and he steams out, threatening to leave her. He can't, since it turns out the TARDIS is just a police-box for once, but he later says he wouldn't have left her.

  • The episode "Get the Message" of Ghostwriter featured one of these—when Mr. Fernandez, Alex and Gaby's father, inadvertently spirals out of control while driving and crashes into Lenni's father's music equipment, the families begin to feud; things only get worse when Tina, who would in most cases be a neutral party, is interviewed about the accident and says that she felt frightened by Mr. Fernandez's crazy driving. To compound the issue, resident Jerkass Calvin deliberately plays up the team's anger at each other to try to determine the secret they've been hiding. The trouble is that Ghostwriter apparently lives on The Power of Friendship, and the team's feud is slowly killing him. It takes Jamal and Rob (the latter offering a Big "SHUT UP!") to reconcile the team, save Ghostwriter, and solve a local art heist.

It ends with the girls nearly falling off the side of a building after Sam rashly jumps out onto a window cleaners platform to get a good camera shot. They get a proper comeuppance by getting stranded upon a scaffold without a harness, which Sam accidentally lowers, and it later breaks, and the girls almost fall to their deaths.

  • Starsky & Hutch has the appropriately named "Starsky vs. Hutch," in which Hutch sleeps with Starsky's girlfriend, causing him to be furious and upset for most of the episode. By the tag, they seem to have made up offscreen.

They finally get back together after fighting one another for each others Key fragments, then discovering that they still have one more enemy to defeat.
  • Ratchet & Clank
    • The first Ratchet & Clank game has a similar feud to the one Sora and Donald experienced. In this case, after Captain Qwark betrays them on Umbris, Ratchet spends a good portion of the game taking his anger out on Clank for being too naïve, ending their friendship. Clank is forced to manipulate Ratchet into stopping Drek, while Ratchet is threatening to kill Clank for trying to keep him from going after Qwark. After Qwark's defeat, Ratchet and Clank reconcile when the consequences of their feud catch up in the form of a destroyed city.
    • Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction has a brief one when Ratchet refuses to believe that Clank has been aided by the Zoni.

  • In Tomodachi Life, it's very common to once in a while see a couple Miis fight if they are friends, dating, or married. Cheer one up with a toy or the right food, and they'll try and patch things up. If they fail, they'll hit a Heroic BSoD and throw a bunch of pity parties at the cafe until you clear up their sadness meter.
    • Sometimes, in extreme cases, they will have a heated feud to the point which they will be engulfed in roaring flames, their response will be delayed when you tap their thought bubble, and they'll deny the fight was their fault and refuse to apologize. A third Mii can step in and attempt to reconcile the two if you scan the building for the right one. Not as likely to resolve a heated feud as a normal one, but it all depends on the quality of the friendship/relationship.

    Webcomics 
  • The flashback to Ben and Alex's middle school days in Weak Hero shows the period of time where they drifted apart due to being put in different classrooms, with Alex getting embroiled in the wrong crowd and snapping at Ben when he raises concerns over it.
