* In ''{{Achron}}'' the remnants of the human fleet find themselves fighting against a section of the military that seems to have its own objectives. In the Grekim campaign one of their leaders decides he would be best to lead their race, and hunts down the others. The Vecgir end up fighting against their own when they face a group of runaways that went and joined the Grekim.

* Completely averted in ''CompanyOfHeroes'', where even in multiplayer you can never fight your own faction. This holds true in the expansion pack ''Opposing Fronts'' which added two new factions that still cannot fight a civil war. In fact, in ''Opposing Fronts'' multiplayer, the Americans and British factions must always fight on the same side, as must the two German factions (Wehrmacht and Panzer Lehr).

** In ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'', the only faction that ever outright fights their own side in the ''main'' campaign is the GLA. Technically, you DO do this, but it's {{handwaved}}: Rogue Chinese General, GLA using captured USA Equipment from an abandoned base, et cetera. Given that they're a massing of factions rather than an army of a particular country, this makes sense. The "Generals Campaign", however, pits a general of your choosing against each of the other available generals in sequence, including the ones that share your nationality. With there being 6-7 AI generals to choose from (In a non-modded version of the game, the Infantry and Demolition general levels are DummiedOut), in a campaign where 6 are randomly chosen to fight you, it is guaranteed that you will go up against someone who shares your nationality.

Added DiffLines:

** The SpaceWolves were suspected to have been created as the Emperor's secret police to keep other Astartes in line. Nowadays this role is held by the Minotaurs, a (possibly Khorne-corrupted) Chapter that serves the Inquisition.

* 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.
