* In the DoctorWho fanfic ''Fanfic/TheLastGreatTimeWar'', the Time War rages ''literally forever'' in linear time because it is fought throughout all history and at the meta levels of reality. Many of the battles themselves are time looped and repeat endlessly.

* Deconstructed and played for laughs in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' episode "Simple". Ben tries to negotiate peace between the two sides of an alien race, and fails miserably as neither side can think past fighting the other and can't grasp the idea of peace.

The alien girl who called him wants the war to end because she just wants a better life. An accident caused by Ben causes the two sides to declare war on ''him'', which doesn't help because although united, the aliens are going to keep dedicating their resources to military over important things like education or welfare of their citizens.

* ''VideoGame/ForHonor'' has a millennia long one in its backstory; after the global cataclysm that shattered the lands of the Legions, Warborn, and Chosen, the three factions began warring with each other over the scarce resources of their fallen empires. Problem is, once things got settled and their societies started to be rebuilt, they didn't want to ''stop'' warring with each other, leading to centuries of conflict that they're just barely pulling themselves out of by the time of the game. [[spoiler: And if Apollyon has her way, this fragile peace will dissolve into a second ForeverWar.]]

'''Crosshairs:''' I mean, what's the point? It can't be for the land because everything is burned, bombed or polluted. It can't be for the money because there isn't anything left to spend it on. So what is it? Religion?\\
'''Pyro:''' Why do we fight? To win the war.\\

** The Hatfield-McCoy fued, which followed almost immediately after the war. TheOtherWiki officially lists it running from 1881-1891, but the initial start of the trouble was from a murder of a Union Soldier in 1865, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking alleged theft of a pig in 1878, and an outstanding bootlegging warrant.]] During the feud proper, 15 people died. Because issues with state lines involved, it grew to such a problem that it almost sparked a war between Kentucky and West Virginia! The resulting trials of the participants lasted until 1901 (the last one was for the bootlegging).
** It should be noted that the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar was a forgone conclusion in the minds of many people dating back to the signing of the Constitution. The Creator/KenBurns documentary regarding TheCivilWar devotes its entire first episode to the backstory of the civil war.

** The war spreads to other worlds like a wildfire, too. The Decepticons won't stop, which means the Autobots ''can't'' stop.

* ''ComicBook/DeffSkwadron'', a ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' comic, centers around two Ork Waaaaghs! fighting each other pretty much forever, and that's just how they like it.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. The game's tagline says it all, really.
-->''"Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods."''
** There's an in-universe joke in the TabletopGame/BlackCrusade rulebook that if peace ever broke out the Imperium would instantly collapse, being built entirely on fighting the Forever War.
** Apparently, this is Tzeentch's true goal. He is the Lord of Change. If a God of Chaos wins, it rules forever, so there won't be change anymore. So his solution is to make sure that nobody wins, including ''himself''.
** The Holy Grail for Orks (aside from MoreDakka) is something along these lines. Orks were made to wage war, and they gleefully do so on anyone who happens to get in their way, other Orks included. Why? Because it's fun. For example, one group of Orks ended up on a daemonworld dedicated to Khorne where they would be forced to fight against daemons forever, resurrecting at the end of each day just in time for the next wave. The Orks considered this to be their own little WarriorHeaven.

* Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** The goal of both the Chaos Gods Khorne and Tzeentch in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' and ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' is to create eternal war. In Khorne’s case, he is a WarGod who is greatly strengthened by all conflict so a war that never ends would assure his supremacy. Tzeentch on the other hand is the Lord of Change and should any side win then there wouldn’t be any more chance for change, so his solution is to make sure that nobody wins, including ''himself''.
