Coyote vs. Roadrunner
Everybody who loves cartoons must have watched the adventures of Carnivorus desperatus, aka, Wile E. Coyote and Supersonicus marvellous, aka, Roadrunner.

Still there is no end to which Coyote would not pursue Roadrunner, even if he is overrun by a train or hit by the stone he supposed to lurch at Roadrunner.
Heroes vs. Villains
It is the constant fight of good against evil. In fiction stories, the villain is seen as the evil force and the hero trying to save the day from the villainâ€™s rage.

Sometimes the hero wins over the villain; sometimes the villain resurrects back, but the fight between the good and the evil will go on for ever.
