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.
Best Rivalry In Anime History...
All Rest Of Are Including Physical Fighting..
While This Genius Are Busy With Each Others Mind Game That Can You Ever Imagine...
Yeboi it'll burn yo brain
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!
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!
I saw someone describe them as yin/yang and fire/ice.
I think that's pretty spot on. They are similar on some aspects, opposite and complemetary on others. One fight with the arms, the others with the legs; one cold and rational, the other fiery and emotional. And though they respect and like each other deep down, they get along like cat and dog. That's why they are the best. - Zeffira
Get a room already!
The mix of rivalry and (tsundere) bromance makes it the best!
They were enemies... for a while. But being enemies doesn't equal rivalry. If Lelouch ever had a rival it would be his brother Schneizel. Two genius trying to outsmart the other. - Serenity
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 not the best rivals but my most favorite.
(The best rivalry is Naruto vs Sasuke hands down)
They started off as just bickering pals but as the story progressed we got to know their past and how they were together since childhood and how much they actually mean to each other, and the actual conflict that comes between their friendship, and how much similar they are.
They're kinda rivals but in the end they are still close friends... - ThatEmoLoner
Ice and fire
They're always fighting over Tenchi. - egnomac
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
Flying Vending Machine, enough said
Those two gods fighting each other are some of the best moments in anime history... they are two amazing characters and their ideals are pretty much what shaped the naruto universe... honestly the sheer epicness of their presence on the screen gives me goosepumps whenever I watch them
How come this is not on the list? - PocketWaifu
