** On a more dramatic note, the conflict ball is InherentInTheSystem. The setting's {{youkai}} are defined as forces that conflict with mankind and their existence depend on humans fearing them. And since the setting itself is a FantasticNatureReserve designed to keep youkai from going extinct via PuffOfLogic, youkai sometimes fill their fear quota by causing dreadful incidents for no greater reason than "well, I'm a youkai," and the resident humans who are in on the {{Masquerade}} sometimes beat up youkai for no greater reason than [[PretendPrejudice "well, she's a youkai,"]] in order to fill the conflict quota.

*** Part of ''Power Rangers''' problem is that a lot of these incidents is due to a case of converting ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' to ''Power Rangers''. For instance, in ''MMPR'', Tommy and Jason were friends after Tommy joined the team, yet in ''KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', their counterparts, Burai and Geki respectively, were brothers who had a falling out. Thus, a plot that worked for the Super Sentai version feels like this for Power Rangers.

** The post-''ROTJ'' EU runs off this trope, particularly ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce''. It doesn't matter how many Aesops the Galaxy has learned, it doesn't matter how many planets are devastated, how many populations eradicated, how many governments toppled, there will always be one planet that feels the need to wage war for absolutely retarded reasons.

* One episode of ''Series/SavedByTheBell: The College Years'' has Slater discover he actually has Mexican heritage. He out of nowhere accuses Zack of being racist because Zack tries to set him up with a blonde girl. He actually says "why do you only think girls with blonde hair and blue eyes are attractive? I've dated girls with dark hair and dark eyes". This is completely ignoring that the love of Zack's life was brunette and that he dated girls of many ethnicities in high school, including their friend Lisa. Slater spends the whole episode being overly sensitive and Zack is presented as the one who needs to learn the Aesop.

** The plot and background of ''Touhou 3: Phantasmagoria of Dim.(ensional) Dream'' primarily circles this trope and this trope alone. The antagonists, [[spoiler: Yumemi and her assistant Chiyuri,]] set up a sort of battle royale. The winner would [[spoiler:get to make any wish that they wanted, and the pair of scientists would do their best to make it true]]. This, however, was just a guise for them to attempt to [[spoiler: capture somebody as a research subject to prove that magic existed, as part of their proposed "Grand Unified Theory".]] The 8 protagonists decide to go along with it, not knowing the intentions of Yumemi and Chiyuri.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': This has been a criticism of Sansa Stark's growing resentment of her half-brother [[spoiler: actually cousin]] Jon Snow in season 6 and 7. As the north rallies around Jon, Sansa begins to feel slighted as she believes rule of the North should be her inheritance, not Jon's. While this is an understandable feeling, it causes her to act in incredibly stupid ways that are harmful not just to Jon, but to Sansa herself -for instance, denying Jon knowledge of critical reinforcements from the Vale while he's planning the battle against Ramsay Bolton, who held Sansa captive for months and [[MaritalRapeLicense repeatedly raped her]], and plans to do so again if he defeats Jon's army. It also requires her to listen to ManipulativeBastard Littlefinger, whom Sansa has outright acknowledged has ulterior motives in helping her and can't be trusted, over her own brother who has never shown himself to have anything other than her best interests at heart.

* In ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', the trio of [[UnwantedHarem Nyarko, Cuuko, and Hasta]] are always being clingy and disruptive, to the annoyance of [[OnlySaneMan Mahiro]]. However, they take it even further in episode 11 of the second TV series, when Mahiro is asked by his mother to babysit a young alien girl named Guthatan. While he does his best to look after the child, the other three are acting even worse than normal, with Cuuko constantly harassing Mahiro to make her breakfast while Hasta gets extremely jealous of how much attention Guthatan is getting. Nyarko gets it even worse, acting even more jealous than Hasta and at one point jumping to the conclusion that Mahiro [[{{Lolicon}} had sex with Guthatan]]. While the conflict ''is'' a plot point, only one small element ([[spoiler:Guthatan getting a cut on her forehead during a battle where Nyarko ''et al.'' went overboard]]) is explained; the rest of it comes off as if the trio just woke up that morning and decided to be as selfish and annoying as possible. And this isn't even mentioning the things they did earlier, like loudly playing video games in Mahiro's room while he was trying to sleep.

** Commonplace for character battles in Sonic games, really. Sonic Adventure does this with Sonic vs. Knuckles/Tails vs. Knuckles. Knuckles attacks Sonic and Tails because Eggman vaguely suggested that Sonic is after the master emerald shards (for no apparent reason), and after seeing Sonic and Tails carrying a chaos emerald (apparently the master of the emeralds can't tell the difference) he decides to start a fight with them without even bothering to explain why or ask why they might have an emerald shard.
