The Top 7… Bestest Frenemies

Once a videogame hero has more than one or two adventures under his or her belt, it simply isn’t enough to just have an archenemy anymore. To keep things interesting, they need a foil, a rival, or some other angry opposite number obsessed with matching wits with them.

Sometimes, those characters stick around long enough to make themselves an indelible part of the series, even going so far as to make friends with the protagonist – although more often than not, their friendships tend to be shaky at best, and even those involved might never fully admit to them.

Relationships like that tend to make for gaming’s most enduring and interesting rivalries, and what follows are some of the most notable. (Metal Gear : Solid Snake, PC, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice for All, PS3, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty, Resident Evil 4, Sonic & Knuckles, Star Fox 64, Xbox 360)
