Homestar and Strong Bad as enemies.

While Homestar Runner and Strong Bad started off as enemies, both characters have since evolved from the polar-opposite personalities they began with. Homestar has become less heroic and more of a "lovable oaf" who often tries to be Strong Bad's friend. Strong Bad, meanwhile, now seems to regard Homestar as more of a nuisance than an arch-enemy, and occasionally shows a soft side for the terrific athlete (though he would never openly admit to it).
