*** In Creator/DanAbnett's ''Literature/GauntsGhosts'' novel ''Traitor General'', [[spoiler:Sturm]] realizes that the warlord holding him intends to use him as a pawn in a struggle within Chaos for the post of Archon, after he lost that post in an open conflict. Indeed, Chaos agents attempt to assassinate him. It is also observed that the aforementioned conflict may have caused more casualties among the Chaos forces than the empire Imperial Crusade up to that point.

* On ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' this is the reason the angel-demon conflict is still going. After the Winchester brothers stopped the Apocalypse, the angels should have been able to destroy the demons. An angelic foot soldier can easily take out multiple demons in a fight and the powerful demonic Princes and Knights were either dead or uninterested in the conflict. However, the angels engaged in a massive civil war with one faction wanting to restart the Apocalypse and the other trying to stop it. A few seasons later the angels fought themselves into near-extinction. The demons tried to capitalize on this but they started fighting among each other as well. Crowley made himself King of Hell but had to constantly fight off attacks from demons who wanted to either seize the throne for themselves or to free Lucifer so he can lead them. When Lucifer is finally freed, he has to fight both Crowley and Asmodeus, a Prince of Hell who got tired of sitting on the sidelines and decided to seize power for himself.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* The first expansion for ''VideoGame/GalacticCivilizations II'' focuses on one happening to the Drengin Empire after they conquered just about everyone else in the galaxy. Just as they're preparing to move in on the last remnants of resistance, however, the Korath Clan is discovered to be committing genocide on those they conquer. This makes the rest of the Drengin very angry (not because of moral scruples, but because killing everyone means there's no one left to be their slaves), and the Empire dissolves into civil war between the Korath and the rest of the Drengin. This doesn't weaken them enough to allow their overthrow, but it does grant the heroic civilizations some breathing room and a foothold to keep fighting back.

** The ExpandedUniverse novels based on the ''original'' series (which were published before the new series premiered) also depict the Cylons having a civil war?between the (mostly) organic reptilian Cylons who founded the race, and the purely mechanical Cylons like the Centurions. Baltar, who has done a HeelFaceTurn by this point, is literally tortured by nightmares of this war, due to his brain being cybernetically linked to the Cylon communications network (and unfortunately, said nightmares are the only way he can access the link).
