Rivalries between characters in an anime is one of the most interesting part of the whole series. It can come in any form like rivalries for love, romance, goals, ideals and some are just so insecure with each other every time they meet.
Rivalries can be with an enemy, from a family, friends, it can come from anywhere.
But we also know that the rivalry between them is not something that is only fun to watch but is also important in molding the character’s development for the whole series.A cat will always hate a dog,as the dog will never stop hating the cat. hat’s just how rivalries work.But in some anime we’ve seen, some rivalries turns out to be the greatest friendships ever had after a long journey.Hence, there are rivalries who would never have a god ending except to keep fighting until they get tired of it(or the other die perhaps).
Here are the greatest rivalries I’ve seen on anime throughout the past few years and these rivalries are so epic they leave a mark on anime history:
Light Yagami Versus L Lawliet (Death Note)
The rivalry between these two doesn’t necessarily need the “BRAWL” but the brains. Light Yagami uses a shinigami notebook as his power to take away peoples lives in an instant and L Lawliet is the best investigator there is who is capable of solving the crime and catching Light for his wrong doings.
Edward Elric and Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)
Both are alchemist who is totally the opposite to each other, Scar is capable of an alchemy only to destroy,and Edward is capable of create and reshape.
Shizuo Heiwajima Versus Izaya Orihara (Durarara!!)
Every time these two crosses paths they just want to kill each other,and for what reason?Well I guess they got nothing more interesting to do. But their rivalry is really fun to watch especially for the damages they do like the flying objects during their fights.
Goku and Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z)
Naruto Uzumaki Versus Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto Shippuden)
Ever since the Naruto series started, we have always seen these two conflict with each other even though they are put on the same team under Kakashi.
Lelouch Vi Britannia Versus Suzaku Kururugi (Code Geass)
Childhood friends turned rivals after realizing they choose different paths to make a change, the peaceful way and the other resorts to violence and chaos.
Natsu Dragnel and Gray FullBuster (Fairy Tail)
