I think it is partly ironic, and partly a meaning similar to this. 'Rivals'
are *not* enemies, or not by definition anyway; there is a sense of the
word in which it is talking about people with co-equal power - you can't be
a rival unless you are in the same league as someone. So you could think
about it as 3 beings who have similar power.
