* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', you may occasionally happen upon two Imperial Foresters (who can be "enemies" depending on how lawless you are) trying to kill each other. This is because Foresters need to hunt for food and will often kill deer. However, deer are marked as friendly towards Imperial Legionaries, so this is considered murder if witnessed by any other Legionaries, who will move in to arrest the "murderer". However, Legionaries aren't programmed to be arrested since they don't normally break the law, so they automatically resist arrest and a fight begins.

* Since victory in the CosmicChessGame that drives the series is a prize that [[AllOrNothing only one]] of them can win, the three Dark Powers in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' inevitably wind up at each others' throats. PlayerCharacter demons are ''usually'' unaffected by this and manage to work together against the angels reasonably well.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': A biological version appears in the "Mansion Family". After getting a check up at the Mayo Clinic, Mr. Burns discovers he has every disease known to man- as well as new ones found inside him. But they battle each other, thus prevent Burns from actually dying of anything.
** Well, Burns believes it prevents the disease from killing him, anyway. The doctor who ran the tests tries to warn him that he's actually incredibly frail, but is cut off by Burns, confident in his inedstructibility.

** To make sure [[NoCampaignForTheWicked a campaign with the Empire]] is acceptable, ''{{TIE Fighter}}'' spends more time with battles against Imperial splinters than with the Rebel Alliance.

** The animated series did a riff on this idea, when a band of Joes accidentally got transported to an alternate universe where Cobra had long won the war and taken over the world. Before finding a way to return home, the intruders managed to spark a civil war between the two factions controlled by Cobra Commander and Destro. (This conflict was highlighted more than once in the "real" universe, but it never came to open blows.)

* A two-part episode of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' involves the heroes ending up in an AlternateReality where Cobra rules the world. The two-parter ends with the Baroness (who is a double agent in this reality and on the good guys' side) having engineered the "first Cobra civil war" in the first step towards building a resistance movement. (How it actually ends is never seen, but it provides a RayOfHopeEnding for that reality.)

** ''VideoGame/TheJediMasters'' has an example with Kannos' takeover of Hulas' [=GenoHaradan=]. When plotting with the [=GenoHaradan=] leaders against Hulas, he made the heads extremely paranoid of each other, resulting in infighting. Hulas himself was finished off by Kannos when the other [=GenoHaradan=] leaders were all dead.

** In ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' the Q continuum (not really an enemy but the home universe of a pain in the neck) becomes engaged in a civil war that to humans looks like a reenactment of the U.S. civil war.
** Later, the Borg also have one.

A small subset of drones (like maybe 1 in 10,000) spread out throughout the Collective manage to break free from its control by retreating to a shared MentalWorld dubbed "Unimatrix Zero-One" during their hibernation periods. The Queen tries to destroy this rebellion as brutally as possible, which eventually results in a full-blown civil war.
