Top Ten Anime Rivalriesegnomac
The Top Ten
This is the best anime rivalry ever! Their rivalry is legendary and still stand strong 33 years after Dragon Ball first started / 22 years after it ended and continued till now in Dragon Ball Super. They are also two of the most recognized anime characters in a well-known anime series. This is truly the best! - Goku02
This is the best and don't deny it dragon ball fans! - brandololz
Dragon Ball Z is actual trash. - ThatEmoLoner
I feel that this should be in the top 3...from the first episode to the last episode, some may call it bromance but I disagree. Other anime rivalries are pretty much stereotypical but this one stands among them.
This is an epic rivalry. They're best friends and enemies at the same time. - ThatEmoLoner
They're Ying and Yang (if you watched Shippuden to the end you'll understand).
Two completely opposite forces that fit perfectly together in a YingYang.
It's like a magnet, it's the opposite forces that attract.
HOW IS THIS NOT ONE? Both characters have amazing development and personality and are from Death Note, one of the best animes of all time. Plus their relationship is so interesting, L is trying to put Light behind bars and Light despises anyone that gets in his way of creating a new world, but at the same time, L is probably the only character in the show that Light may have seen as a friend. And all of the "battles" are so epic. - ThatEmoLoner
While Death Note ended badly, one reasons why it started out strong was due to their rivalry.
This is a good one. - ThatEmoLoner
Definitely a rivalry to consider in top anime rivalries. Kaiba being the world champion duel monsters player, then Yugi/Atem comes out of nowhere to defeat him. Now, Kaiba wants to reclaim his title. Also to consider, they are definitely two sides of the same coin. Yugi believes his friends will guide him, while Kaiba thinks that only using brute strength and superiority will win the game. WHo's side of the coin is the right one? That's what makes this rivalry so intense!
The best part is that they actually do care for each other, but they're so similar that they can't stand it, and end up insulting each other and bickering all day long. THE best.
They're always fighting over Tenchi. - egnomac
They're kinda rivals but in the end they are still close friends... - ThatEmoLoner
Ice and fire
They were rivals for literally 5 episodes. - ThatEmoLoner
When they first meet its clear that there was no way they could get along even though their fathers arranged for them to be married. - egnomac
This rivalry was literally a matter of life and death, two of Japans smartest people battling head to head, how is this not the best rivalry?
L isn't Japanese and L is a international detective, not just for Japan. - ThatEmoLoner
There rivalry got me hooked to Death Note!
