The Best Anime Rivalries of All Time

Who are the best anime rivals that you can't get enough of? If there's one thing that almost every anime has, it's an intense rivalry between two of the main characters. For this poll you'll be voting for the greatest anime rivalry of all time, regardless of genre or anything else. These characters are obsessed with being better than the other, whether it's a battle of wits like that between Yugi and Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh!, or a physical battle of strength and pride such as the rivalry between Goku and Vegeta in DBZ. Heck, the entire storyline of Samurai Champloo is pushed forward by the rivalry between Mugen and Jin. If not for the competitive nature of these two, they would have never agreed to follow Fuu.

Let the world know your favorite anime rivalry by voting for your top picks below. If there's a particular anime character rivalry you feel deserves to be on this list, leave us a comment and we'll add it to the list!
