You won't kill me, out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness...and I won't kill you, because you're just too much fun! I think you and I are destined to do this forever!'
~ The Joker analyses his relationship with Batman.
An Archenemy is the main enemy of the protagonist. The reason why the particular villain stands out more than the rest varies; they may be the hero's strongest enemy, be the complete antithesis to the hero, have strong connections with their hero's past, pose the greatest threat, or may be the most recurring villain.

Examples include The Joker from the Batman comics, Lex Luthor from the Superman comics, Circe from the Wonder Woman comics, Norman Osborn/Green Goblin from the Spider-Man comics, Red Skull from the Captain America comics, Doctor Doom from The Fanastic Four comics, Mandarin from the Iron Man comics, Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter, Agent Smith from The Matrix trilogy, The Leader from The Hulk comics, Ghostface from the Scream series, Jafar from Aladdin, Hades from Hercules King Ghidorah from the Godzilla film franchise, Gyaos from the Gamera film series, Cecil Clayton from Tarzan, Bowser from the Mario series, Dr. Eggman from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Nigel from Rio, and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII and Revolver Ocelot from the Metal Gear Solid series, The Killer/William Afton/Springtrap from the Five Nights at Freddy's series, Rita Repulsa from Power Rangers, Pete from Mickey Mouse and Elmer Fudd from Bugs Bunny. They are also Big Bads if they are the people responsible for everything. For an anime/manga example, Frieza for Goku, Cell for Gohan, and Majin Buu for Supreme Kai from Dragon Ball.
