* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E23TheHooffieldsAndMccolts The Hooffields and McColts]]" featured a long standing feud between the two title clans, named after the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatfield-McCoy_feud Hatfield and McCoy]] feud. 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.
** As revealed in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E13ThePerfectPear]]", the Apple Family has been feuding with the Pear Family for a while now. It's also revealed that Applejack, Big Macintosh, and Apple Bloom's mom is a Pear whose father disowned her for loving their dad, an Apple. The two families manage to reconcile by the end of the episode.
* Another Hatfield-Mc Coy feud parody is in the ''WesternAnimation/TheHillbillyBears'' between the Ruggs and the Hoppers.

** And thus, the inspiration for the first arc of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII''. Only the main character is on the Medicis' side.

If the families of the first perpetrator and victim are [[TheClan large enough]] and roughly equal in power and resources, this can go on for a long, long time. So long, in fact, that it's rather easy for them to forget what the original cause of their fighting was. [[BigScrewedUpFamily A feud usually doesn't help the mental health of the individuals and the wisdom of their family culture.]] This can lead to three most obvious conclusions:

** : This is the general state of affairs in the upper levels of hive cities and worlds that haven't known much strife in the past millenia, where families maintain old grudges and constantly try to overrule the others. This is explored even further in the ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'' GaidenGame, where each of the ruling families has its own Hat: House Goliath have TestosteronePoisoning, HouseEscher have AmazonBrigade (yeah, they get along ''real'' well), House Kawdor are [[ComicBook/TheRedeemer religious lunatics...]], and is always fighting the others for dominance of the hive.

* Within the DCU as a whole, the [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Arrow]] and [[ComicBook/{{Hawkman Hawk]] families. It stems from the contempt that Hawkman (Carter Hall and Katar Hol) and Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) have for each other, given Hawkman's conservative, even fascistic, worldview conflicting with Green Arrow's liberalism. Roy Harper (Speedy/Arsenal/Red Arrow, the former sidekick to Ollie) even invokes it when someone warns him away from Kendra Saunders (Hawkgirl), a Hawkgirl who ''doesn't'' have her past self's memories. Writer Brad Meltzer even intentionally invokes Romeo and Juliet when it comes to the two.

* The two big [[Franchise/TheFlash speedster]] families of Franchise/TheDCU, the West/Allen line and Thawne line. Bart Allen - Impulse/Kid Flash II - is an heir to both, and aware of it, but totally neat in he doesn't angst over his lineage like most other people (he doesn't really think or talk about it unless you insist on pressing the issue) and practically laughs at Zoom's "corrupted bloodline" rant.

The feud spans centuries, and comes from the hate Malcolm Thawne has for his biological brother, Barry Allen (the second Flash), who got to grow up happy with their biological parents while Malcolm was raised by criminals. Bart Allen - Impulse/Kid (Impulse/Kid Flash II - II) is an heir to both, and aware of it, but totally neat in he doesn't angst over his lineage like most other people (he doesn't really think or talk about it unless you insist on pressing the issue) and practically laughs at Zoom's "corrupted bloodline" rant.

* ''WoodyWoodpecker'': By the time Woody got involved, the Coys were already extinct and the last one's house became a museum of family memorabilia. Woody put on a Coy's hat and the last Martin assumed Woody was a Coy.
