* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} was originally a conflict between the [[ChurchMilitant Imperium]], the [[LegionsOfHell Forces of Chaos]], [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]], [[OurElvesAreDifferent Eldar]] and [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranids]]. Then in the 3rd edition they added two armies, the [[ForTheEvulz Dark Eldar]] and the [[RobotWar Necron]] and attempted to cram the Necrons in as the new BigBad. Games Workshop also attempted to add the Necrons in as a mysterious, subtle horror, which doesn't always work in a universe about as subtle as being bludgeoned with a {{Gwar}} concert.

** In the fourth season, [[spoiler:KnightTemplar and ManipulativeBastard Maggie Walsh was replaced as the BigBad by Frankenstein's Monster Wannabe Adam in the second half of the season, turning an interesting "do the ends justify the means" conflict into an excuse for the heroes to turn into some spirit magic version of {{Voltron}}.]]

* The Water Seven storyline of ''Manga/OnePiece'' seems to set up Franky as that arc's big bad by having him and his goons beat Usopp to a bloody pulp. The Strawhats vow revenge and tear Franky's henchmen a new one, causing HIM to swear vengeance in turn...it all seems to be leading up to a big showdown between Franky and Luffy, until the WhamEpisode which turns the plot on its head leaves our heroes with much, much bigger problems to worry about. Franky does a HeelFaceTurn and proves to be far more interesting as a good guy, anyway. And ultimately joining the crew.

* Occurs in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' when the Replicators start to attack the Wraith by attacking humans (the Wraiths' [[ToServeMan food source]]). Atlantis teams up with Todd and his Wraith to destroy the Replicators, but, as with the [=SG1=] example above, they do resume their regularly scheduled conflict once the Replicators are dealt with.
** An interesting example in that the Atlantis team intentionally created their own conflict killer by reprogramming the Replicators to attack the Wraith. [[DidntThinkThisThrough They didn't expect them to try to starve the Wraith]] [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor but they did get (almost) what they wanted.]]
