%%example needs context, why were they fighting, what issue, etc. * ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'': Franchise/{{Batman}} vs. Franchise/{{Superman}}.
* A complete list would go from here to Mars. A list of flimsy reasons why superheroes on the same side should fight each other, still to the Moon. (Although on the meta level, "pleasing the fanboys" suffices.) So stock that a "Marvel What-The?" parody summed it up concisely when Superhero Team A entered the Conveniently Abandoned Warehouse from the left: "Everybody on the alert, this may be a hackneyed plot contrievance!"

Some examples from here ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' stories:
** In ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', Silver Banshee has
to Mars. A list of flimsy reasons why superheroes on the same side should fight each other, still her friend Kara, who is out of her mind due to the Moon. (Although on the meta level, "pleasing the fanboys" suffices.) So stock that influence of a "Marvel What-The?" parody summed it up concisely [[Franchise/GreenLantern rage-fueling Red Power Ring]].
** In ''ComicBook/ManyHappyReturns'', Linda knocks her friend Kara out in order to take her back to her timeline.
** In ''ComicBook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'', Franchise/{{Superman}} faces off against his brainwashed cousin. He doesn't want to fight Kara, but
when Superhero Team A entered she almost kills him he forces himself to use Kryptonite to knock her out.
* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' story ''ComicBook/WarWorld'', villain Mongul blackmails
the Conveniently Abandoned Warehouse from the left: "Everybody on the alert, this may be Man of Steel into stealing a hackneyed plot contrievance!"

* As ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' reaches its conclusion [[spoiler:you will have no choice but to fight two of the three companions that you were with for the entire game because they will disagree with whichever path you have chosen for Tokyo. It's made slightly easier with [[LawfulGood Jonathan]] and [[ChaoticGood Walter]], but only because each has already sacrificed his own body to become an all-powerful EldritchAbomination. The battle with [[NeutralGood Isabeau]], however, is undoubtedly the most heartbreaking PlayerPunch that the game has to offer.]]

* The ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series as a whole has this as a mainstay.
** In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'', the three party members are the Heroine, the Law Hero, and the Chaos Hero. The Heroine sides with the player no matter what, but [[spoiler:it's mandatory to kill at least one of the others. If you side with Law, you have to kill the Chaos Hero and vice versa. If you don't pick a side and instead go for Neutral, you have to kill both of them. Even if you do side with them, they die anyways: the Law Hero is killed by the Chaos Hero, and the Chaos Hero steals an ArtifactOfDoom from the player and dies from too much power.]]

** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' also has a PlayerPunch in [[spoiler:the Massacre route. This route would mean the destruction of the universe, and the party understandably turns on the player. After spending the entire game showing off CharacterDevelopment for the party, killing them is heartwrenching.

* One-sided in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'': Having been captured by the Grandmaster, Thor is willing to fight the champion for his freedom... [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFPBQaPL5mQ and then sees who this champion is.]] [[spoiler:The Hulk]] doesn't see him as a friend, however, [[LetsYouAndHimFight and they fight as expected.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Happens again in ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole''. Among the playable characters, Kenny, Stan, Token, and Tweek are fought during the civil war segments; Butters is fought as the DiscOneFinalBoss and pulls a HeelFaceTurn shortly afterwards; Cartman, Kyle, Clyde, Craig, Jimmy, and Scott are all brainwashed by Professor Timmy and forced to act as his minions during the final fight with him; and [[spoiler:the New Kid is fought in their King Douchebag persona when the party travels back in time to stop the BigBad's evil plans]]. The only playable character to avert this outright is Wendy.

* The penultimate fight of Story Mode in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' is [[spoiler:Raiden vs. Liu Kang.]] '''[[TearJerker It doesn't end well.]]''' It also happens a bit earlier in Kitana's chapter, where she duels her [[HeterosexualLifePartners servant]] Jade (the latter having been sent by Shao Kahn to keep an eye on Kitana). This fight isn't nearly as emotionally heartwrenching [[spoiler:and doesn't come at the cost of presumably destroying a long-lasting friendship.]]
* ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' has this in spades. [[spoiler: Due to most of the Earthrealm warriors dying in the previous game, Quan Chi claimed their souls and they serve under him as revenants. Sub-Zero, Jax, Kung Lao, Liu Kang, Stryker, and Kitana are under Quan Chi's control and you fight them all eventually. Jax and Sub-Zero are able to be saved and return to their normal selves, but the rest aren't as lucky.]]

* In ''BlueDragon'', when you encounter Marumaro for the first time, he will fight you to prevent you from interfering with his quest for medicine for his village.
* In ''IronTwilight'', when Qem jumps out of the chest and will only help you if you beat him in some sort of [[TennisBoss tennis match with fireballs instead of tennis balls]] [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere that has no relevance to the plot whatsoever]].

* The '''''{{WebAnimation/TOME}}''''' 5-year anniversary short features [[spoiler: Alpha fighting Zetto, who has at this point been revealed to actually be Kirbopher's alter ego. Since the Kirbopher character model was destroyed, Michael and Christopher hang out in the game using Chris's Zetto character model instead, and as such are able to have friendly battles without having to worry about any of the serious events that usually took place whenever Christopher was logged on as Zetto. Although since Kirbopher is really Zetto, technically any fight that took place between Alpha and Zetto in the past could be considered this, albeit unknowingly.]]
