Rivals, not (quite) enemies

I’ve mentioned this before, specific to NPC adventuring parties, but any group of PCs could have rivals, who can be full-on enemies in a setting where settling feuds with a fight to the death isn’t generally an option.

Band Vs Band reminded me of this (thanks to Rose for the link) centring on a group of upbeat indie pop kids and another group of downbeat indie rock kids. Misfits, you might call the latter group...

Harry Potter and his crew may confront Voldemort and the Death Eaters on a few dramatic occasions, but they tangle with Draco Malfoy and gang frequently, often over petty things, so when they get pulled into the real drama it stands out and often changes their ongoing relations.
