* ''Braveheart'' - some little Scottish boys seem ready to join the war by attacking some full-grown English soldiers -- but it's a gag. They're actually throwing rocks at some makeshift toy enemies.

* There was an ''IronMan'' story about a group of kids who dressed up as the Avengers; it wasn't exactly "playing" since they did good deeds like defending their classmates against bullies. But when the real Iron Man leaves the real Avengers, the kids feel compelled to kick their own Iron Man off the team. He's heartbroken, but after a later act of heroism on his part, they urge him to rejoin their team.

* An early chapter of ''Literature/EndersGame'' features one of these, in which Ender's older brother demonstrates his sadism. Since mankind is currently recovering from a war with a race of insect-like aliens, the game has been changed to "Buggers and Astronauts", with the "cowboy" character wearing an astronaut helmet and the "Indian" character wearing an alien mask.

* In Harry Turtledove's WorldWar series, a Lizard (invading alien) prisoner asks Corporal Sam Yeager what a group of children were doing. Yeager replies that they are probably playing "Cowboys and Indians", which of course means nothing to the alien. After a few abortive attempts to explain, Yeager simply says "think of it as Lizards and Americans."

* ''Film/SkyHigh''. "Heroes" and "Villains" compete to save a mannequin civillain from spinning blades. Big surprise, the guys who consistently play "Villains" are actual villains.

* In ''Film/TheTerminator'', Kyle Reese plays with one of the kids in this mode to show what a swell guy he is. Considering the dire straits the humans are in, you might wonder what they're playing - Humans and Terminators?
** The sequel also has a scene of two children playing with what look like real guns.

* In the JustWilliam series, William sometimes plays this kind of game (although more often he's seen playing "Red Indians" or "Pirates" - note that despite the former's name, neither of them count as this trope).
