* The first war in the ''Literature/{{Deverry}}'' series is between a Tieryn (Count) and a Lord whose families had been feuding for three generations, first over whose line would be named the regional Tieryn, then over the borders between their lands, and then who had what privileges, and then over anything else they could think of. By the time the focus characters arrived, they were warring over who held the swine rights (The right to forage for pig fodder) in the local woods that formed the border between their lands, and both sides had been bled so dry by the fighting that between them, both sides could only field a total of fourteen people (Eleven soldiers, the nobles in question, and one mercenary).

Also, during the SuccessionCrisis known as the Time of Troubles, it was mentioned that some clans chose one side purely because a rival clan chose the other, which gave them unrestricted ability to pursue their feud in the name of the 'true' king.

[spoiler:During the Red Wedding Roose Bolton murders Robb Stark, apparently ending the Starks in the Male Line. He is then named Warden of the North by the Lannisters and tries to legitimize his hold on the North by having his legitimized [[BastardBastard bastard]] [[{{Sadist}} Ramsay Bolton]] marry "Arya Stark" (really a Winterfell girl who is forced into the role), claiming that now their ancient feud will be forgotten. However, most of the North is still loyal to the Starks, who are not quite wiped out yet.]]

** The Starks and Lannisters. The only reason they are civil to each other is because Ned Stark's best friend Robert Baratheon married into the Lannister family. [[spoiler:But once Robert dies (and it's strongly hinted at the his wife Cersei killed him), all bets are off and the Lannisters utterly devastate the Starks, though not without suffering some losses themselves.]] It's worth noting that Martin based this feud lightly on the UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses.

** There's also a lot of bad blood between House Lannister and House Martell, as during the Sack of King's Landing, Tywin Lannister sent his bannermen to kill Rhaegar Targaryen's children in order to make it easier for Robert Baratheon to take the throne. Said bannermen, Gregor Clegane and Amory Lorch, not only brutally slaughtered the children, but Clegane also raped and murdered their mother Elia Martell - the sister of the current Prince of Dorne. Prince Doran and Oberyn naturally didn't take this too well [[spoiler: and it gradually emerges that they conspired to return Viserys Targaryen to the throne and take their revenge for Elia and her children. Even after the Viserys plot falls through, thanks to that pot of molten gold, the Martells are still determined to make the Lannisters ''pay.'']]

Doran calms them down, and puts them to work on his more subtle plans.]]

** 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.]]

* Canada had its own feuds, especially the infamous one involving the notorious Donnelly family in Lucan, Ontario. That conflict involved that family against most of the surrounding community that got so bitter that it ultimately ended with a bloody home invasion/massacre of the Donnellys.
