* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' has this UpToEleven. It's a [[MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena MOBA]] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover from Blizzard's franchises like ''{{Franchise/Starcraft}}'', ''{{VideoGame/Warcraft}}'', ''{{VideoGame/Diablo}}'', ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'', and even to the classic games like the ''VideoGame/TheLostVikings'' fighting together or against each other in different maps with ''unique'' objectives that can quickly and radically change the gameplay.

* ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s Civil War sub-plot boils down to UsefulNotes/TheRomanEmpire vs. HornyVikings.
** The player can become a vampire or werewolf, and you fight dragons. There's also ninja assassins, wizards, demons, shadowy goblin-like elves, evil Nazi elves, and giant dwarven robots. You can even fight mammoths, saber-toothed cats, and giants!

** In ''[[http://www.imperial-library.info/content/lord-vivecs-sword-meeting-cyrus-restless Lord Vivec's Sword-Meeting With Cyrus the Restless]]'', the [[PhysicalGod Tribunal deity]] Vivec, of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' fame, clashes with Cyrus the Restless, hero of the spinoff game ''The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard''. In it, [[spoiler: Cyrus claims he can use the [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Pankratosword]] in order to get Vivec to hand over a valuable treasure. It's a bluff, but it works]]. Upping the "coolness" factor is that Cyrus is said to be an incarnation of the Hoon Ding, the Yokudan "Make Way" god, making this god vs. god as well.

* Perhaps the most high-stakes election in the history of UsefulNotes/TheBonnRepublic was that of 1980 - Helmut Schmidt (SPD) of Hamburg at the head of a crumbling SPD-FDP coalition against Franz Josef Strauß (CSU) of Bavaria leading a resurgent CDU/CSU. The former would go on be one of Germany's most beloved ex-chancellors while the latter was a living legend among Bavarian conservatives and the devil incarnate among leftists already during his lifetime. Both men have airports named after them, which is a rarity in Germany[[note]]The only other airport named after a politician is the new Berlin Airport to be named for Willy Brandt, Schmidt's predecessor and the mayor of Berlin when the Wall was built, but that airport is currently stuck in DevelopmentHell[[/note]]. Strauß for who the election was to be the pinnacle of a storied career of federal and statewide office dating back to 1949 did his best and campaigned up and down the country against Schmidt whose slogans included "Stoppt Strauß" and "A man who [like Strauß] has no control over himself should not be given control over Germany", often firing back in equal caliber (especially when there were hecklers in the audience). Ultimately Strauß achieved one of the best results in CDU/CSU history but not enough for an absolute majority while the FDP would enter into a coalition with the SPD one last time. Two years later, the FDP would switch sides, elevating Helmut Kohl (CDU) to the chancellorship; Strauß' long-time rival and by 1988 Strauß was dead.

* Unfortunately it has been overhyped to death and back, but you just know when the Quarterbacks are Manning on one side and Brady on the other, a showdown of epic proportions is about to happen. Older brother Peyton Manning holds most records worth holding in the NFL whereas Tom Brady is one of the most successful athletes in terms of championships won - and Eli Manning is the only Quarterback ever to beat a team Brady was on in the Super Bowl - and he did it twice. Those names will go down in sports history and sports fans of the 2000s and 2010s were fortunate enough to see them battle it out live and in color.

* [[TheBeautifulGame Association Football rivalries]]. Especially Brazil vs Germany.
Germany - only two games "that counted" were played in this rivalry up to and including the 2014 world cup - the 2002 final and the 2014 CurbStompBattle in the semifinal where Germany anihilated Brazil 7-1 and it seemed like they were going easy towards the end.

In the Blue Corner, displacing a tidy 987 long tons, all the way from New York, the raft body turret ship, USS Monitor! FIGHT!FIGHT! Notably both ships lived on to tell the tale, but as contemporary observers would have it "every other ship just became obsolete".

* A Franchise/{{Lego}} line called ''Franchise/{{Ninjago}}'' pits heroic ninjas (with cool tornado powers in TV spots) against armored skeletons that ride motorcycle-like vehicles. Later the ninjas battle SnakePeople and utilize HumongousMecha. One episode of the TV show has them fight [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot undead]] {{Pirate}}s.

Ok, you get the point - the entire series basically runs on this trope.
