I would argue that none have any neutral and/or positive connotations. All are associated with violence and suggest that violence is the answer they seek. Bicker could be seen as neutral; however, it can lead to arguments if there is no agreement to disagree. It therefore has connotations that are negative in that is suggests discord with no solution.
