* The setting for ''VideoGame/REDCON'' is a world where WorldWarOne never ended and a century years of stalemated trench warfare has rendered the planet nigh-uninhabitable.

** In the ''Literature/TerokNor'' novels, part of what motivates Cardassian support for withdrawing from their Occupation of Bajor is the idea that, if the 50-year occupation goes on much longer, both sides will be too emotionally invested in it to ever stop;
** In ''[[Literature/{{Rihannsu}} The Romulan Way]]'', Vulcan before Surak. It's said that, between the birth of civilization on Earth at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%87atalh%C3%B6y%C3%BCk Çatalhöyük]] and the battle of the Thermopylae, there had been only a period of 10 standard years in which as much as ten percent of Vulcan was ''not'' at war. In fact, the only thing that stopped the wars was first contact with [[WeComeInPeaceShootToKill alien pirates faking peaceful intentions]], and war resumed soon after, first against the pirates and then (after the pirates were defeated) between each other until Surak managed to establish his reformations.

* The mostly forgotten 2000 movie ForTheCause takes place on a colony world where the two main cities have been fighting for so long that both have been reduced to utter ruin, and the most advanced weapons they started with in common use have been LostTechnology for generations.

* The mostly forgotten 2000 movie ForTheCause takes place on a colony world where the two main cities have been fighting for so long that both have been reduced to utter ruin, and the most advanced weapons they started with in common use have been LostTechnology for generations. They started with nukes and holographic MagicFromTechnology weapons of which only a few users now exist, in the previous generation they both ran out of planes, and in the current plot one side has a decisive advantage because they still have a tank (but not enough fuel to use it for anything but defense).

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'':
** Episode XXV has the 300 Spartans fighting an evil machine that sends hordes of robots to attack day after day with no end in sight because the machine strips the battlefield of fallen robots to either repair them or salvage them for spare parts. The Spartans fight to protect their homeland from being stripped of its natural resources. The war ends when Jack shows them a hidden path that allows a strike team to attack the robots' main base. During the background story, the king admits he's the fifth king in the war and with his son fighting, that means the war has been going on for at least 6 generations.

** Notably, the reason for the NonIndicativeName is that the war spanned 80 years, but was interrupted by a period in the middle known as the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve_Years%27_Truce Twelve Years Truce]]. War became so much the default that it became necessary to name the period of peace.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': For thousands of years, the Heralds of the Almighty led humanity against the Desolations, world-breaking wars perpetuated by the demonic Voidbringers. At Aharietiam, humanity finally won, and the Heralds ascended to the Tranquiline Halls to continue the fight there, to reclaim Heaven from the Voidbringers. The truth, however, is that humanity ''didn't'' win. The Heralds were simply [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere so tired of fighting that they gave up and left]]. They told the people they won, and the world gained a four and a half thousand year reprieve from the Desolations. But as the series begins, people slowly begin to realize that the war never ended, and the Voidbringers are returning once more.
-->'''[[PsychicDreamsForEveryone Death Rattle]]:''' They named it the Final Desolation, but they lied. Our gods lied. Oh, how they lied. The Everstorm comes. I hear its whispers, see its stormwall, know its heart.

* ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'': The Pendulum Wars between the COG and UIR lasted for 79 years. Six weeks after it ended, [[BeneathTheEarth Emergence Day]] happened, kicking off a brand ''new'' war that lasted another 16 years. Gears 4 is implied to be a guerilla war between the surviving humans and the underground factions that were pummeled by the locust until all [[AppliedPhelotbotian immulsion]] stores died.

* The UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar, although ending properly in 1965, spawned race conflicts and armed upheavals that lasted for decades. One of the comments made in the Ken Burns documentary stated that it lasts to this very day, as long as race divide is not solved. In short: The civil rignts movement wished for a final end to this problem, and they ''got'' a number of amendments to support their cause through in TheSixties. But then the southern conservatives dug in, and this issue is still a problem.
