someone you feel the need to compete against in every aspect of life. someone who is going for the same goal as you. exp:girl/guy, job.
I've never seen anyone try so hard to beat another person. They must be rivals.

Your enemy. The one you live to defeat but for some reason enjoy their existence. They give you purpose in your usually meaningless life.

A rival is so important that Sylvester Stallone requested about it.
It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

It is a misspelled way of Levi Ackerman's romanticized name
Person 1: Who is Rivalle?
Person 2: It's Rivaille. And it's Levi

Growing up you had opponents, back when you could break each others bones. Then, opponents became rivals in college. Really rivals and rivalries are for college kids and the ancient Greeks.
The guy had no rival. He sure had some opponents though.

To have someone deliberately draw the attention of a being of hostility to themself, and then go near their victim (so as to alert said hostile being of your presence).

Usually, the offender also pretends to be dead (or completely vanish), in order to disinterest the aforementioned hostile being from them completely leaving their victim in danger.
Victim: I was just minding my own business when some rogue with a vicious mountain lion chasing him ran at me and vanished!

Victim's Friend: You got rivaled!

Rivals-Conflict
When someone is always against everything you do.
A person who loves being on the opposite position against you.
someone who constantly disagrees with you.
Person: Dude every time you go to the club there’s a Rivals-Conflict.
