** In the ''StarTrekNewFrontier'' novel "Martyr," the Unglza and Eenza tribes of the planet Zondar had been at war for over 500 years, and Calhoun's arrival was predicted to usher in peace. Then in "Cold Wars" in the ''Gateways'' series, the Aerons and Markanians had been separated warring for the "sacred world" of Sinqay, with the Gateways recently renewing their hostilities, until the ''Excalibur'' and ''Trident'' actually return them to their "sacred world," [[spoiler:now an uninhabitable black rock]].

* ''{{Pumpkinhead}}: Blood Feud'' revolves around this trope, with two families, the Hatfields and the Mccoy's (not the RealLife ones), embroiled in a blood feud that had apparently started over a car theft in the 1930's. The feud accidently kills one of the younger daughters of the Mccoy's, and her older brother Ricky summons Pumpkinhead for revenge. The families end up reconceiling to form a defense, not that this matters much since Pumpkinhead is virtually immortal and wipes out almost all of the Hatfields and some of the Mccoy's before Ricky kills himself to vanquish Pumpkinhead by dragging him down a well.

* Laurentia from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' gives us the feuding Grahams and Moreaus, started when the daughters and [[BastardBastard son]] of Laurentian founding figure [[TheAce Lucien Moreau]] had equal, mutually exclusive claims to his inheritance and legacy. The latter wins and claims the Moreau family name for himself, but animosity between the two goes on for another ''century and a half''. By the time the player characters arrive on the scene, you can learn through some sleuthing that the feud was eventually resolved, though it [[NoodleIncident doesn't tell you how]].

* A case of feuding clans in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' happens between the Gummi Glen clan and the Barbaric Forest clan due to their very different cultures (the Barbaric are, well, barbarians and warriors whilst the Gummi Glen's are civilized and pacifists) but the real conflict comes from the fact that the Barbarics want to KillAllHumans and the Glens not only oppose violence but also know some humans are good (as they befriend several). Of course the conflict gets resolved at the end with AnAesop.

All attempts made by Twilight to solve it peacefully fail, and in the end she freezes them all while they're having an all-out brawl and yells at them until they see sense.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': The Senju and Uchiha clans were constant rivals during the Warring Clans Era, often seeking employment in conflicts simply to oppose one another. Eventually both clans grew tired of the bloodshed and formed an alliance, which led to the founding of Konoha and the end of open conflict between the two. [[spoiler:Due to Madara's actions and the inherited distrust of the Uchiha, the Senju used their dominance in Konoha to effectively muzzle their rivals. The resulting discontent led to them planning a coup]].\\

The origin of their feud is interesting in that [[spoiler:it began when the two sons of the Sage of Six Paths fought over who was their father's rightful successor. The eldest and disinherited son was forefather to the Uchiha, and the favored younger son was forefather to the Senju]].\\

Tobi has stated that [[spoiler:Naruto]], being a relative of the Senju, is destined to battle with [[spoiler:Sasuke]], an Uchiha. In the end the two fought [[spoiler:to a draw, and in the aftermath they managed to make peace with each other, bringing the feud to a close.]]

** Riverlands families Bracken and Blackwood ''loathe'' each other, to the point that Lord Tytos Blackwood refuses to surrender despite his castle being his side's last remaining stronghold in a war, because it means he'll be surrendering to the Brackens. When Jaime Lannister comes along and offers more amicable terms, he's quick to surrender. While there Jaime inquires why the two families have never tried to make peace, and it turns out they have made peace dozens of times and are so intermarried every Blackwood has a Bracken ancestor, and visa versa. Eventually the people who made the peace die, and something reinvigorates the feud.

The Bracken-Blackwood feud had wider-reaching consequences for the realm, and may have helped to fuel the first Blackfyre Rebellion.



** Although initially rather one-sided, the Freys have loathed their titular overlords the Tullys for quite a while and stalled them wherever feasible using mainly PassiveAggressiveKombat of various kinds and ducking behind PlausibleDeniability whenever possible without actively breaking their connections. [[spoiler: They ramp their end of the feud up by several orders of magnitude thanks to the Red Wedding, so it actually becomes this trope good and hard with any surviving (or undead) Tully and their allies quite motivated to join in. As many Northmen and Rivermen were murdered, the Freys are surrounded by people who want them dead, and for breaking SacredHospitality most of the Seven Kingdoms, even their allies, despise them.]]
** The Manderlys and the Peakes of the Reach feuded until the former were defeated and fled to the North, at which point the Peakes were given their abandoned castles. This stemmed from a dispute between 2 historical Lords Manderly and Peake over which of their wives would inherit the throne of the Reach from their father-in-law the king, who had no sons. After a war during which the Dornish invaded, sacked the king's castle, and killed the king, a coalition led by the Tyrells ended the dispute by ignoring the feuding lords and crowning a distant cousin as king.

]] Ironically enough, there are numerous feuds within House Frey due to how large and unpleasant the House is, with Walder Frey's many descendants jockeying for favour and the implication numerous members are quite willing to murder their way up the line of succession.

** The Targaryens and Martells feuded for years, until a marriage alliance finally ended the feud. This, however, only fueled the animosity of House Blackfyre until it rebelled against their Targaryen overlords and kin.

* UsefulNotes/TheWarOfTheRoses, with House York and House Lancaster. It started in 1455, due to the fallout from the English defeat in UsefulNotes/TheHundredYearsWar and the declining mental state of Henry VI. Because he came to the throne as an infant, and never became a forceful leader, the nobility descended from different sons of Edward III grew in power and ambition. This was complicated by the fact that Henry's grandfather, Henry IV, was a usurper, and one without an ironclad claim to the throne
