When this occurs against something threatening to [[ApocalypseHow wipe out humanity as a whole]] (such as the ever-popular ZombieApocalypse), this usually leads to AnAesop for the survivors (or the audience) about how we need to [[TeethClenchedTeamwork look beyond our differences and focus on the big picture,]] or a scathing indictment of humanity's [[ZombieInfectee self-destructiveness]] and how we can sometimes be [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters even worse]] than the monsters we're fighting. This trope is also a good way to showcase [[ADarkerMe the darker side]] of characters under stressful situations whom are otherwise good people. This also can be caused by clashing egos, but mostly it's due to conflicting personalities.

The opposite of LockedInARoom: the ensemble of diverse characters starts to argue and turn against each other during intense situations. E.g. being boarded up in a house/building/store when there are rampaging [[TheVirus viruses]] / [[ZombieApocalypse zombies]] / [[AlienInvasion aliens]] / [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] / [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolves]] / [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Jehovah's Witnesses]] or what have you [[TheSiege looming outside]] ([[TenLittleMurderVictims or inside]]) [[TenLittleMurderVictims trying to get to you]]. Which leads to paranoia, frustration, and disagreement among the group when it comes to fixing the dilemma. Patience starts to run short, the ensemble is starting to get on each other's nerves, and things quickly get out of hand and possibly implode.

* In the RS arc of ''PokemonSpecial'', the Gym leaders realize that there's a terrorist group out there planning to screw over Hoenn. Since Aqua and Magma work against each other, the Gym Leaders argue about which group are the real bad guys, not realizing that though the two teams have opposing goals, ''both'' groups are terrorists. The Gym Leaders probably would have duked it out between themselves if not for the fact that Groudon and Kyogre start destroying the region. Made worse by the fact that Tate and Liza weren't there due to their duty to guard the Red and Blue Orbs, and Norman knew better and refused to take sides. Shame Sapphire wasn't at this particular meeting, or she could have vouched against them both, being a witness to the heinous deeds of both groups.
