* ''Film/WindRiver'': The situation between the deputies and the [[spoiler: security guards]] at the drill site is extremely tense, and one MexicanStandoff has already been talked down. Then someone thinks can get the drop on Jane by firing when she is not expecting it. A massive firefight ensues, with Jane ironically being of the few survivors.

* At the start of ''Film/DenOfThieves'', Merriman and his crew are holding the armoured car guards at gunpoint while they hijack the armoured car. Things are going according to plan till one of the guards goes for his gun (or possibly just drops his coffee). Bosco shoots, a firefight kicks off that leaves one robber, most of the guards and several cops dead, and several others injured.

* Creator/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.

* Deliberately invoked by Gene(aka Viper) in Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. Using his MoreThanMindControl, he plants feels of paranoia amongs a large platoon of defectors, creating a PowderKegCrowd, until inevitably one pulls the trigger on their rifle, causing the entire group to start gunning each other down to a man. Only Big Boss and Johnathan where unaffected.

* Double subverted in Film/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.]]

* 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.
