* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Every episode that has [[HeterosexualLifePartners Stan and Kyle]] be at each other's throats. For example: in "Follow That Egg", Stan is angry with Kyle for being paired with Wendy for an EggSitting project because Wendy broke up with Stan in "Raisins" two seasons ago. Kyle points this out by reminding Stan that he got over her after the break-up.

*** 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 ''KyouryuSentaiZyuranger'', 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.

** 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 TheMasquerade sometimes beat up youkai for no greater reason than [[PretendPrejudice "well, she's a youkai,"]] in order to fill the conflict quota.

* In one ''Anime/FairyTail'' filler episode, Juvia buys a dodgy potion that acts as this, causing truly random declarations of rivalry. And when I say 'random', I ''mean'' random. Some are rather plausible, like Mirajane vs. Erza, but then you have Erza vs. wooden post (because it wouldn't move out of her way), Makarov vs. alcohol (because it got him drunk), and [[spoiler: Gray vs. The Horizon]].

** This was particularly glaring in Season 7, when Buffy and her cohort end up sharply at odds towards the end of the season.

** This was particularly glaring in Season 7, when Buffy and her cohort end up sharply at odds towards the end of the season. The most infamous example is how Buffy ends up kicked out of her own house in "Empty Places": the Potentials stage a coup voting for Faith to be put in charge instead of her after a perfect storm of failures is set up for Buffy ''and'' somehow all of the Scoobies have lost faith in her so none of them back her up (leading to Dawn of all people giving her the boot, which is particularly ConflictBall as the episode didn't give her an excuse to turn on Buffy like the other Scoobies). Faith herself seems utterly stunned by the turn of events, as she'd only raised the argument because she had a few issues with Buffy's tactics. Also Spike, Buffy's biggest supporter, is noticeably absent on a mission for the episode just so they can have ''everyone else'' turn on her (which he promptly calls them on when he returns). It's undone within two episodes, making it even more jarring.

** 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''.
