Later, things go UpToEleven when they team up.

** The ''VideoGame/SwordOfDamocles'' mod adds several new factions and some special mercenaries. What about the late Western Roman Empire versus Ottomans who worship [[EldritchAbomination a Lovecraftian entity]], or pagan Scottish highlanders and Welsh longbowmen versus late-renaissance Venice borrowing cues from the Ancient Greeks? You can also have [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Army_of_Hungary the Black Army of Hungary]] versus African tribesmen, or medieval Byzantium versus Samurai. It's awesome.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' definitely doesn't start out like this--its conflicts are more often between frighteningly amoral sociopaths and likable noble heroes [[AnyoneCanDie who can die at a moment's notice]]--but the finale of Season 6 seems to confirm that the final conflict is headed this way. On one side, there's the BadassPrincess Daenerys Targaryen, her trio of loyal dragons, and her charismatic wise-cracking dwarf advisor Tyrion Lannister, who are all poised to return to Westeros to reclaim the Iron Throne for Dany. On the other side, there's Jon Snow, the {{Badass}} Lord Commander of the Night's Watch who singlehandedly led his RagtagBunchOfMisfits companions against giants, barbarians, mammoths and ice zombies, and [[spoiler: has just been revealed as a secret WarriorPrince, and one of Dany's strongest rivals for the Iron Throne]].

** The guy who programs the simulations actually said that they were avoiding it because no one would agree on the right way to test it, and no one on the losing side would accept the result anyway (not that the series isn't ''already'' a tremendous BaseBreaker).

** One time invoked by Ron Wizard, who deduced that a single giant robot was not enough to produce the required [[AwesomenessIsAForce awesomeness]] to summon his people from their world - so he created another giant robot to fight it.

* ''Manga/Gate'' is full of this. The basic premise is that a magical portal to another world suddenly opens up in modern Tokyo, and the city is attacked by an invading army of monsters and medieval soldiers from a fantasy world. Japan defeats the invading army with its modern weaponry and tactics, then sends its Japanese Ground-Self Defense Forces through the gate to secure it from the other side, defeat the ones behind the invasion, and establish diplomatic relationships wherever possible. This leads to some interesting conflicts, such as fire-breathing dragons versus fighter jets, or a halberd-wielding demogoddess fighting a team of special ops soldiers.
