** There's a civil war in the 1850's in Texas between those who want independence and those who want to stay part of Mexico. Though this quickly becomes a sideshow to a Mexican civil war between Republicans and Imperialists. [[spoiler: Thanks to American intervention, it ends with a compromise that sees Mexico divided between a Republican north and Imperial South, and Texas divided between an independent east and a west that stays in Mexico as part of the new republic.]]
** A brief one occurs in Britain in 1900 after it's revealed that Prince Edward and his conservative allies has attempted to seize power from his sister Queen Victoria II and her reformists by keeping her locked up (for her "health") and using her son Victor as a [[PuppetKing Puppet Regent]]. Once she's broken free by her husband and word gets out of what's happened, Scotland and half of England flock to her and turn on Edward's forces. [[spoiler: Edward ultimately loses, killing his nephew and himself rather than let himself be captured and Victor be freed.]]

* The ''[[https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/washington-burns-a-story-of-alternate-america.413571/ Washington Burns]]'' timeline has a few examples:
** Due to the slaveholding South gaining more control over the federal government, while simultaneously a very aggressive abolitionist movement takes hold in the North, sparks naturally fly, with the final nail being the draconian measures taken by President James Hawthorne to enforce slavery. In 1859, New England and New York break with the Union and form the Confederation of American States, with the intent of seceding fully if Hawthorne isn't removed and the government isn't reformed. And things get more complicated when several state governments object to Hawthorne trying to militarily crush the CAS rather than negotiates, leading to clashes between state militias and the Union army; this leads to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky and Appalachia (OTL West Virginia) denouncing Hawthorne as unfit to be President and forming the Free States Alliance, declaring themselves the legitimate US government and allying with the CAS, with the intent of reconciling them once Hawthorne is defeated. Then the slave and Native American revolts in the South start on top of this... [[spoiler: The war ends when the Union angers Britain by violating their neutrality, leading to them aiding the FSA/CAS/slave/Native alliance in crushing the Union forces, leading to Hawthorne's surrender and the reunification of the US in 1862.]]
** A second American civil war breaks out in the early 1900's, when the hard-right wing Nationalist governments of several Western states grow dissatisfied with Liberal and Federalist rule and declare independence. [[spoiler: This lasts less than two years, before the Union utterly crushes the rebels and reabsorbs their states.]]

* ''Fanfic/SummerCrowns'' has a few examples:
** Several Riverland houses which were loyal to the Targaryens ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and the Freys]]) rise up against House Tully.
** A nonviolent political version happens in the Reach, between the Florents (who were made Wardens of the South by the Baratheons) and the Tyrells (who want their position back).
** Braavos borders on one between a faction which, for {{Realpolitik}} reasons, wants to ally with the slave-holders in Lys, and another which holds hardcore to the Braavosi tradition of being anti-slavery.

** Another civil war erupted in "Smurf Vs. Smurf" where the North Smurfs and the South Smurfs fought over the correct use of the word "smurf" in compounded words and phrases (or however the language division was portrayed in non-English versions), which led to Papa Smurf seeking the reluctant help of Gargamel to straighten the whole mess out.

* In ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' comic book version of "King Smurf", the title character fosters rebellion among the Smurfs with his authoritarian rule as the village's monarch, leading to more and more Smurfs choosing to side with the rebels instead of with King Smurf, even during the FinalBattle when the village was breached by the rebels. By the time the dust settled, King Smurf only had about a dozen Smurfs still loyal to him surrounding him in a circle and would have been consumed by the rebels had not Papa Smurf showed up to shout "STOP!" and bring all the Smurfs back to their senses.

*** Hammerfell, home of the [[ProudWarriorRace Redguards]], saw a civil war erupt in the late 2nd Era between the Crowns, descended from [[{{Precursors}} Yokudan]] nobility, and the Forebears, descended from the "Warrior Wave" of Ra'Gada (including the [[TheOrder Ansei]]) who secured Hammerfell for the migrating Yokudan people. The civil war left both sides weak and allowed Tiber Septim to easily capture Hammerfell for his new Empire.

*** The continent of Yokuda, to the west of Tamriel, saw a bloody civil war waged between the [[TheOrder Ansei]], or "[[MasterSwordsman Sword Saints]]", and the forces of the Yokudan Emperor, Hira, who was attempting to consolidate power by eliminating the Ansei. After urging from his son and fellow Ansei, the legendary Frandar Hunding (by this point a BadassGrandpa) reluctantly led the "greatly outnumbered" forces of the Ansei against the corrupt Yokudan Emperor Hira. Frandar and the Ansei were victorious, but were considered "red with blood" by the citizens and chose to self-exile to Tamriel following the conflict. (Yokuda itself would be "sunk beneath the sea" not long after.)
