Friends to enemies to lovers (and all the steps in between) are the most popular tropes around, aside from killing your dad and being accused of a crime you (probably) didn't commit. There's nothing more fun than seeing two enemies who want to rip each other to shreds and rip each other's clothes off.

Of course, in real life most things don't work like that. Despite it being Britta’s firmly held belief, most men don't immediately take their shirts off when they fight because all they want to do is kiss... but in fiction? All bets are off, baby. 

Here are some of the hottest rivalries and detestable frenemy-ships in all media, and some of the moments that prove their relationship is for real. Are most of these people gay? Yes. Is the only one on here that's not gay on here primarily because demons are genderless and because the two actors got married in eal life, which makes it the most meta-true of all of them? Also yes.
