  • Like arch enemy.

  • Surely this is stronger than "arch enemy"? I always though "nemesis" was about equivalent to "arch enemy", that is, the single most dangerous adversary one can have. I dread to think what my arch nemesis might be like. It implies that I have multiple nemeses, for a start!

    What a great plural that is.
