Dunno how much this will interest anyone, but Wikipedia used to have a list of fictional arch rivals, which I enjoyed tremendously, but it's since disappeared and I've found compiling such a definitive list harder than I'd thought -- not every hero has an obvious nemesis like Batman (Joker) or Superman (Lex Luthor). Even Spiderman aficionados seem unable to agree between Doc Ock, Venom and Green Goblin. I thought if people like listing fav tv characters they might like suggesting the archenemies of any movie or tv character (or movie/tv-related, as in comic books or novels adapted to film), any at all one could name. I'll start with tentative list culled from another site:
