* Most of the running time of Creator/BenWheatley's ''Film/FreeFire'' is taken up by an apocalyptic ''twelve-way'' blast-out, with bloodied characters stumbling from one piece of cover to the next, making and breaking alliances at breakneck speed.

* DavidWeber's ''HellsGate'' series includes this. Two populations have been exploring the multiverse for decades without encountering anyone, so neither side is prepared when they both enter the same universe at the same time. Two scouts meet in the forest, we see the situation from both their perspectives - they're justifiably tense - and then the story cuts away so not even the reader knows what happens. Both end up dead, and a series of mistakes, bad decisions, and lack of communication sends things FromBadToWorse.

* Double subverted in SavingPrivateRyan, during one scene an American soldier accidentally knocks down a wall by leaning on a log, only to reveal a squad of Germans on the other side, both the Americans and Germans scream and point weapons at each other, and right when the viewer thinks both sides will start firing...[[spoiler:''another'' American squad of soldiers, who are off screen, open fire and kill the Germans.]]
* In Peter Jackson's adaptation of ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Two Towers]]'', Saruman's forces reach Helm's Deep and there is a tense moment while the Uruk-hai pound their spears on the ground in unison. and the defenders of Rohan prepare to loose their arrows. Suddenly, one of the archers, an old man, loses his grip on his bowstring and lands an arrow in an Uruk-hai neck. After a moment of stunned silence, the battle begins, though contrary to this trope's usual context, there's no way in hell that legion of Uruk-hai would have allowed a peaceful solution.
