* Happens repeatedly in ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'. The big reveal in ''Legacy of the Void'' is that [[spoiler:the Xel'Naga more or less wiped themselves out this way. A rogue faction of Xel'Naga led by Amon grew weary of their duties (they wanted to be gods, not shepherds) and tried to break the Cycle by artificially uplifting the Protoss and the Zerg to use them as weapons. The rest of the Xel'Naga objected and fought against Amon's mad scheme. By the time the dust settled, nearly all of the Xel'Naga had perished.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/DecadesOfDarkness'' sees a lot of these:
** The [[AlternateHistory divergence point]] is Thomas Jefferson's early death in 1809, starting a series of events that results in New England (along with a disillusioned New York and New Jersey) seceding from the Union, with military help from Britain.
** Spain eventually has its own civil war, which eventually causes it to split back into Castile and Aragon.
** In Brazil, anti-slavery/pro-democracy forces within the military eventually stage a coup against the royal family, who escape with support from the Americans, resulting in the country being divided between an American puppet state in the north and a republic in the south.
** Near the end of the timeline, their losses in the Global War cause [[spoiler: Britain and France]] to break apart into a number of bickering smaller nations.
** Also near the end of the timeline, there's a civil war in Canada (here an autonomous kingdom instead of a dominion) between supporters of the monarchy and a democracy movement. This one isn't resolved by story's end, but it's speculated in-universe that the republicans will succeed in breaking western Canada away, leaving a rump kingdom in Ontario; left unresolved is the fate of Wisconsin, which is the most heavily divided between the two sides.
