* In a very old example of an UnbuiltTrope, Myth/GreekMythology, the soldiers Achilles commands in the ''Literature/TheIliad'' are called the Myrmidons, or, in Greek, "ant-people." This name came from their origin as ants turned into warriors by Zeus in answer to a king's prayer to repopulate his country after a plague. The word "myrmidon" has come to denote any mindless group of subordinates, and is essentially the source of the allegory on which this trope is based.

* The DuelingMovies ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' both had such wars -- in the former, between ants and termites, in the latter, between ants and marching locusts (who were somewhat inexactly called 'grasshoppers').

* Seen in ''Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants''. A group of black ants carrying a box of sugary cookies come across a squad of villainous red ants. The pursuit for the candies escalates into a war once the black ants reach their ant hill and they're helpless before the larger numbers and militaristic power of the red ants. They have a number of fireworks to turn the tides with, but only a single match, so the ladybug protagonist is sent into a search for a box of matches for its friends to use.

* WesternAnimation/TheAntBully has a subplot about a war of the ants with the dragonflies, though by the end they go EnemyMine against the larger threat, the Exterminator and by the end it seems they have struck a permanent peace.
