** In the General Story ''A Shadow Falls'' in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', there are 2 instances where characters start fights for idiotic reasons, because the instigators are very stubborn and seemingly paranoid about theft. The first is in Brazil where Ken meets Laura. He politely tells her about a McGuffin in her possession that he needs. For no reason at all, Laura believes that he was ''trying to steal it'' from her brother Sean and wants to beat Ken into a pulp. Later, Dhalsim travels to New York to speak with Alex about another [=McGuffin=]. Dhalsim is also very polite, but Alex jumps to conclusions, accuses him of being a mugger with ''no proof'', then attacks him.

For example, why is Bob TheLancer [[CommanderContrarian arguing]] with Chuck TheBigGuy about his plan to [[StormingTheCastle infiltrate the enemy base?]] Bob actually suggested similar plans before. In fact, it's his favorite kind of plan, so why is he disagreeing with Chuck now? He never says. Bob's behavior is entirely plot mandated: now he can [[IneffectualLoner go off on his own, screw up]], [[DistressBall get captured and need rescue]], and then [[AnAesop learn a valuable lesson]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship about teamwork]]. For added annoyance, Bob might [[AesopAmnesia forget all about it]] just in time to be handed the Conflict Ball ''again''.

* Torturous Convolvulous of ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and the Roman Agent'' is a living example. He can cause people go at each other's throats just by standing in front of them and doing nothing. After seeing his ability to cause discord in action, Caesar hires him to destroy Asterix's village, something he comes very close to accomplishing.

*** This reaches maximum silliness with ''Mists of Pandaria'', which gives both factions the Pandaren race. Despite all Pandarens speaking the same language, they still can't communicate with Pandarens in the other faction.

** Story mode in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' has several cases of this, but the biggest one goes to Smoke. Smoke, who usually calm and collected, becomes angry at Jade since he assumes that she attacked Kitana after the latter tried to turn against [[BigBad Shao Kahn]]. Raiden clearly points out that the female Jade attacked ''isn't'' Kitana (it's actually Mileena, who wears purple while Kitana wears blue), but Smoke attacks Jade anyway. The conflict between Smoke and Jade seem to serve no purpose other than to pad out the gameplay length.

** Example: In ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'', the Exile has to visit three hidden Jedi and convince them to band together and help fight the Sith. Individually they all agree with you that the Sith need to be fought. Once you get them together, however they come to the conclusion that because the Exile's nature as a void in the Force might bring about the death of the Force itself, they turn their attention towards the Exile. Their rationalizations are fair enough but are jarring given how much the Sith have them backed into a corner.

* In ''Series/TheExpanse'', the ''Canterbury'' is drawn into responding to a distress call after a crewman, James Holden, ensures that it is logged with corporate HQ. This immediately provokes bad feelings within the bridge crew as each person suspects others around him or her of secretly logging the call.

* ''{{Series/Supernatural}}'' does this quite a bit. For example, in season 2, Sam argues against killing the pacifist vampires, yet in season 8, he refuses to even consider the idea that Dean might be right about Benny.
** Flipped from when Dean killed Sam's pacifist kitsune friend earlier, only to defend Benny from being killed by Sam in season 8.
*** Pacifist? She killed at least six people (granted for sympathetic reasons). Besides its justified as we get to see Dean and Benny meeting, showing they originally were hostile to one another. They worked together simply cause Benny was the only one who knew how to get out of Purgatory, and he needed Dean to get there. After a whole year of fighting together and getting to know each other however (not to mention Benny saving, Dean's best friend Cas) they became friends. Likewise after Benny, Dean shows a notably higher tolerance and willingness to except not all Monsters are evil, so its more CharacterDevelopment.
** Likewise, Dean never shows any signs of having problems with Missouri and Pamela's psychic abilities, but is suspicious of Sam's abilities from when they first start manifesting all the way back in season 1. Of course, [[spoiler: Sam's powers turn out to be bad news after all,]] but Dean didn't know that at the time.
*** Potentially justified. At the time they met Missouri the brothers didn't know much about Sam's abilities, but they knew that their mother had been killed by a demon in Sam's nursery when he was a baby. By the time they met Pamela, they knew for sure that Sam's abilities had demonic, and therefore "evil" origins. Moreover, while Missouri and Pamela seemed to have ease and control over their abilities, Sam's visions were involuntary, unbidden, and excruciatingly painful.
** A half-season example in Season 8 when Sam was revealed to [[WhatTheHellHero not have tried to look for Dean when Dean had vanished at the end of Season 7]] (widely regarded as an extreme OutOfCharacterMoment for Sam mostly to manufacture conflict between the brothers, or plain bad writing). The out of character behaviour combined with an almost Strawman lack of explanation or defense from Sam made fans honestly wonder if Sam had been supernaturally affected (again), whether he TookALevelInJerkass, or if the writers were simply looking for a reason to have the brothers fighting.
