* In ''Videogame/MechWarrior 3'', a similar setup to ''Mech Commander'' is used. Despite being an Inner Sphere military unit fighting Clan Smoke Jaguar combatants, the majority of the [[HumongousMecha BattleMechs]] you fight will be Inner Sphere designs rather than Clan. The justification used is that CSJ are notoriously lacking in HomeGuard funding and equipment, resulting in them using captured Inner Sphere equipment for their defenders, while the superior Clan equipment is shipped to the front lines. Clan mechs are generally reserved for boss fights and start appearing more often towards the end of the game.

** In ''Mechwarrior Living Legends'', the game is set in a Inner Sphere versus Clan conflict, though server owners are free to allow players to either buy any vehicle or only faction-specific vehicles. In the game's TournamentPlay with multiple Inner Sphere and Clan factions, groups could attack groups that are nominally on the same side, such as [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld House Kurita]] attacking [[ChinaTakesOverTheWorld House Liao]], both using Inner Sphere equipment.

** The entire [[WorldOfWarcraft Mists of Pandaria]] expansion his been building up to this situation for the Horde. It eventually comes down to Vol'jin and the other leaders of the Horde against Garrosh and his Kor'kron. [[spoiler: Even after Vol'jin is named the new Warchief it appears that this situation could potentially pop up again. Speaking to Sylvanas following the raid shows she has no intention of listening to a troll and has every intention to see what she can get away with. Lor'themar also expresses concern regarding Sylvanas.]]

* WorldInConflict has Soviet special units take over an US base and use an absurd number of captured US vehicles in an attempt to attack New York. However, there is no chance of fighting your own faction in multiplayer.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'''s Splatfest events, sometimes one side will be so popular that there aren't enough people on the other side to go around, so they'll occasionally be matched up with another team from the same side.

In RealTimeStrategy games, the various factions are usually unified, monolithic entities. But fighting the same enemies in battle after battle gets boring. So the developers will often contrive some reason for fighting against your own side in single-player scenarios. Usually this involves betrayal on one or both sides.
