* 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).

trope). Of particular note is the "Lions and Tamers"/"Tigers and Tamers"/"Tamers and Crocerdiles(sic)" series of games he plays in a chapter of the first book (changing to a new name whenever the game is banned under the old name [[ExactWords so he can claim he's obeying the ban]]).

* One of the earliest "angle"(storyline) tropes, wherein professional wrestling became worked and wrestlers took on [[TheGimmick gimmicks]]. According to one history of the sport, this type of angle was common during the 1930s, often using two Americans, the well-tanned half of the feuding tandem being the "Indian," who would be asked to engage in a publicity stunt (e.g., pitching an Indian teepee in town and "refusing to leave" unless granted a match) to draw media attention and interest in the upcoming local event. Through the years, this would used sparingly, as both cowboys and Amerindians were usually portrayed as baby {{faces}}.

* ''FanFic/KyoshiRising'': Kyoshi's older brother and his friends enjoy playing rounds of "Earth Kingdom Soldier", breaking off into teams and having the heroic Earth Kingdom defeating the evil Fire King with the assistance of the Avatar (the biggest argument is not over who gets to be on the good team, but who gets to be the Avatar). Kyoshi is often "kidnapped" to be the DamselInDistress, at least until she gets more control over her Earthbending and gets everyone to accept her as the Avatar whenever they play.

* The battle of Rorke's Drift (in that case, Redcoats and Zulus) is recreated in ''Evil Eye'' by Creator/MichaelSlade. Thematically, the battle of good vs. evil resonates in many of the Special X novels.
