While this is usually just a dramatic device, especially for characters who are StrongAsTheyNeedToBe, [[SeriousBusiness a lot of ''fans'' take this much more seriously]], spawning the infamous {{fanwank}}y and subjectivity-filled ''fight threads'' in online discussions.

** As expected, ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' has some of its members fight or almost fight upon meeting one another. Film/IronMan fights Film/{{Thor}} who later fights Film/TheIncredibleHulk with no clear-cut winners. Film/{{Captain America|TheFirstAvenger}} deflects Thor's hammer when he breaks up his fight with Tony and even challenges Iron Man to a fight but nothing comes of either conflict. This is averted in the fight between Comicbook/BlackWidow and ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} as Black Widow renders Hawkeye unconscious.

* At the end of the Battle City arc in ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Yugi and Jounouchi begin a duel to resolve the question raised by their previously unresolved duel (which Yugi had thrown to save Jounouchi's life). The episode ends before the first card is played, leaving it unresolved (though the fact that Jounouchi inexplicably has his Red Eyes Black Dragon back in the next arc would suggest that he indeed won).
* Not to mention the UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny [[GrandFinale Series Finale]] of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX''. However, the cards in play heavily suggest that [[spoiler:Judai]] lost, but on his own terms. And the important part was that he was finally having fun with the game again anyway.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'', Yugi and Kaiba's duel is actually conclusive, as, by doing the math, Yugi does wipe out his lifepoints, and Kaiba does not activate his facedown. Kaiba however, somehow hangs on to 100 of his lifepoints (which may be due to the fact that the power goes out as soon as his counter reaches that number), and Aigami interrupts it before it can be followed up on. [[spoiler:The movie also ends just before Kaiba and Atem possibly duel in the afterlife.]]

** This trope is averted in ''The Avengers'' sequel, ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. Iron Man, now wearing a special suit designed to fight the Hulk, actually manages to beat him in a pretty brutal match. Meanwhile, Scarlet Witch manages to MindRape the entire team at one point or another, with the exception of Hawkeye, who is immune to her powers and has her captive. Quicksilver beats Hawkeye twice with the element of surprise, but Hawkeye beats him using surprise in their third encounter.

* ''WebOriginal/DragonBallZAbridged'': During the Cell arc, several videos featured the protagonists of other series showing up to battle Cell, including [[WebOriginal/YuGiOhAbridged Yami]] ([[spoiler:Cell managed to RulesLawyer him into RageQuitting]]) and [[Anime/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] ([[spoiler:His Hokuto Hyakuretsuken managed to wipe the smug off Cell's face, but he regenerated]]). Then [[Manga/OnePunchMan Saitama and Genos]] show up. Genos goes first, [[TheWorfEffect and you can guess how that goes]], and as [[ComicallyInvincibleHero Saitama]] steps up, Cell makes the mistake of saying when the tournament takes place, prompting Saitama to realize there's a sale on that day, meaning he won't be able to make it to the fight, so he picks up Genos and leaves.

* {{ComicBook/Deadpool}} once got into a YoMomma fight with Spider-Man, and as he was building up to the ultimate zinger that would leave Spidey completely crushed, he left, claiming he'd achieved his goal of distracting him.
