View Full Version : Favorite Anime/Manga Rivalry.

What's your favorite anime/manga rivalry? Is it the ever-lasting Naruto vs. Sasuke? Or maybe Light vs. L? Feel free to discuss your favorites here.

Mine, personally, would probably have to be the comedic Maito Gai vs. Kakashi. I honestly cannot resist laughing when these two have an 'intense man battle', as Gai refers to it. They have the silliest of battles, even though they could barely be referred to as such. Haha.

Hmm... I've honestly never thought about it...

Akira and Minoru (Lucky Star) is a pretty epic match up. lol

I've gotta admit Gai vs. Kakashi is pretty damn funny. As a coulple have mentioned Light V L is awesome. Ichigo vs his inner hollow. Mnemosyne has an ongoing battle over many years between Rin and that assassin woman. Finally Ash vs Gary mother******* Oak.

Gai vs. Kakashi is always a good time. I also like the Renji vs. Ichigo rivalry in the first two seasons of Bleach.

No, not Suzaku. He's a Little Beach. Schneizel is /much/ more awesome.

Hanai vs. Togo (School Rumble)
Goku vs. Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z)

Also, Akira Toya and Hikaru Shindo (Hikaru No Go).

I wholeheartedly second this. Seriously, Akira vs. Hikaru is the rivalry of the ages in my mind. They just complement each other so well, and I love how they're best friends by the end and keep pushing each other to succeed. (cue more fangirl ranting)

Pokemon-wise, I thought May and Drew were cute, ehehe. And, of course, Ash and Gary; too bad Gary's not around much anymore. -_-

Ino vs Sakura (Naruto)
Sasuke vs Naruto (I suppose that's a pretty famous one)

Ino and Sakura have been rivals since they fell in love with Sasuke VS The day Naruto meets Sasuke, and just decides to pick fights with him. Haha, Sasuke, and Naruto's first meet was also a first kiss.

L vs Light
Mello vs Light

January 27th, 2011, 11:38 AM

January 27th, 2011, 11:57 AM
Colonel Mustang and Furher Bradley probs xD (FMA) Ash and Gary are pretty epic too.

January 29th, 2011, 9:23 PM
Natsu vs, Gray from Fairy Tail. They're funny. :3

Digimon Kaiser

Leomon vs Ogremon in Digimon Adventure.

Even though Leomon kinda... dies... for some reason. As always, Leomon always gets killed.

Asuna vs. Ayaka (Negima)

Reason: They are a funny pair of rivals, as they can be friends one day, arch-nemesis the next day. At first, they argued all of the time, and nearer then end of the series, they only argue occasionally argue about Negi.

Ash vs Gary - Gary was such a cool guy, and the episodes where they appeared were hilarious!

Ranma vs Ryoga - Both great characters, and love how Ryoga can just attack Ranma out of nowhere and then they start to fight.

Best Moment- When Ryoga snuck into ranma's house in the middle of the night, stood right by Ranma and Whispered "Ranma ,wake up, lets fight" FREaking AwSome!

Ash Vs. Gary was the best one from Pokemon, and Natsu Vs Gray from Fairy Tail is funny.

February 19th, 2011, 9:45 AM
Grimmjow vs Ichigo (Bleach)

February 19th, 2011, 11:46 PM

Light vs. L or Lelouch vs. Schneizel.

Light vs. L because... well, they're incredibly entertaining. I mean, when they took the focus off of their rivalry, the whole show fell apart. Lelouch vs. Schneizel because of the nuances in their personalities... It's hard to explain.

Rivalry, huh . . . it'd have to be any combination of Elsie, Nora and Haqua from The World God Only Knows. Maybe not Elsie, though, as she's too much of a ditz to really be a convincing rival.
