** Its sequel, ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'', involves the Marvel superheroes once again split, this time [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Captain Marvel]] wants to use someone precognitive powers to prevent [[PrecrimeArrest crimes]] and disasters from happening. Franchise/IronMan, however, refuses to punish criminals before they commit crimes. [[spoiler: All of this is set off by the deaths of ComicBook/WarMachine and ComicBook/SheHulk at the hands of Thanos.]]

** Of course, there's also the Avengers civil war in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. Which, unlike its comic book counterpart, is sparked by the Sokovia Accords, a bill that would place the Avengers under the authority of the UN.

* The French Civil Wars in [[WorldWarTwo 1940-44]] and [[{{UsefulNotes/Algeria}} 1954-62]] are conspicuously ''absent'' (bar Film/TheBattleOfAlgiers) - official policy under UsefulNotes/CharlesDeGaulle was that [[FanonDiscontinuity the former never happened]], and the same has largely gone for the latter as well

* [[UsefulNotes/ThreeKingdomsShuWeiWu The collapse of the Han Empire]] brought about a civil war that culminated in the rise of three separate empires. Most famous for being the origin of Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms, though the Romance throws in a lot of folklore and anachronisms.



* The Gryps War of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam''
* In ''Msnga/FullmetalAlchemist'' there was the Ishvalan Civil War which happened in the backstory, and devolved into a [[GuiltFreeExterminationWar Guilt Free Extermination War]] due to the Amestrians ordering their genocide.

* The Gryps War of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam''
''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' was fought between the Anti Earth United Government (AEUG) and the Titans. Both factions claimed to be operating under the Earth Federation, though when the Titans demonstrated a remarkable lack of care for whether or not Earth Federation political leaders were caught in the crossfire, the Titans were declared traitors.
* In ''Msnga/FullmetalAlchemist'' ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' there was the Ishvalan Civil War which happened in the backstory, and devolved into a [[GuiltFreeExterminationWar Guilt Free Extermination War]] due to the Amestrians ordering their genocide.

* 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.]]

* ''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.
