** In [[Recap/AsterixTheLegionary Asterix the Legionary]], Asterix and Obelix get involved in the Civil War between Caesar and Pompey, which is certainly an enemy civil war from their point of view.

Subtrope of EvilWillFail. Contrast EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily, where evil gets along arbitrarily well, or RebelliousRebel, where the villain's revealing their treachery plans promptly causes a subordinate to revolt against him. Compare EvilVersusEvil, EasilyThwartedAlienInvasion. WeAREStrugglingTogether is a heroic inversion. See also AsskickingEqualsAuthority. Can result in TheGoodTheBadAndTheEvil. See CivilWarcraft for the RTS version. Not to be mistaken with SetAMookToKillAMook.

Because this trope specifically talks about evil persons and organizations, [[Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease don't add real life examples]]. Those belong [[RealLife/WeAREStrugglingTogether here.]] [[noreallife]]

* In ''Literature/TheGuardians'', [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] holds the throne in Hell, but Beliel gained enough followers to fight him for it by promising to return them all to [[AscendedDemon Divine Grace]]. Their war has been ongoing for millennia.

* Done more simply in ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' games. Get a monster to hit another of a different species, and bam, fight to the death. Then you shoot whichever one survived, weakened.

** Creator/CSLewis' classic ''TheScrewtapeLetters'' manages to have it both ways. Hell holds together only because the lower (higher) ranks of the Lowerarchy are usually too powerful for minions to harm them. Bureaucratic backstabbing is a matter of course. After Screwtape's nephew fails to corrupt his assigned soul, Screwtape [[spoiler: eats him]].

** Also, the Sarghress lose their minds when Quain'tana decides to form an alliance with Zala'ess. This is probably the most rational decision she could make, [[PyrrhicVictory as her complete conquest of Chel destroyed all food stores and trade relations with agricultural colonies]] and Zala'ess had enough food to defend a siege against Snadhya'rune, but a serious majority of her troops think she finally betrayed them like any other post-revolutionary dictator. They decide to purge her and her entire family and put her former partner in charge. It ends badly.
