* Averted in ''VideoGame/MagicalBattleArena''. Thankfully in some cases, since this meant that there's a chance that [[MultiMookMelee your enemies might accidentally blow their companions up]] trying to get at you, but be very wary if someone like, say... [[{{LightNovel/Slayers}} Lina]] or [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha]] is your ally. If you hear the [[KamehameHadoken Dragon Slave]] chant or the words "[[CatchPhrase Zenryoku Zenkai]]", that should be your signal to fly [[SphereOfDestruction far away from their target]].

** ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyWorldAttWar'' plays the trope straight (at least in single player). Especially bad when you can shoot napalm straight through your squad to hit the enemies on the other side... And with one of the Death Cards, you can heal teammates in co-op by shooting them.

* Thankfully present in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', where your bullets and those of your partner can't hurt each other. Its still annoying, though, that your partner will gladly stand right behind you and keep shooting you in the back to get at the enemy in front of you.
* Completely averted in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' You can kill your EscortMission package in ONE hit by ANYTHING including one knife swipe. And even the merchant. However the ENEMY can't hurt each other AT ALL, even if the person obviously had stabbed his partner in the back. However people with dynamites can still kill the other ganados, and Jj can also shoot his own military.
** Of course, there is the option to turn on friendly fire. [[SarcasmMode Good times will be had by all.]]

* Averted viciously in ''Podcast/CriticalHit'', are real play DungeonsAndDragons campaign. In accordance with the DungeonsAndDragons tabletop game example below, a mage has to be very, very careful with the placement of the spells. Being the BigGuy in the party that consists mostly of arcane casters, Torq ends up being set on fire by allies so often that it becomes a RunningGag. But he is far from the only one to be caught in the area of effect spells cast by allies, and every party members experiences it at least once, some by their own spells. [[SquishyWizard Orem]] eventually took a feat that allows him to invoke FriendlyFireproof by giving his spells a penalty to attack rolls against allies (meaning that allies are less likely to be hit by the spell than enemies are), but, as the party quickly discovered, it does not help when the eponimous critical hit is rolled.

* In [[VideoGame/KisekiSeries Trails Series]], you can cast offensive [[MagicFromTechnology orbal arts]] or offensive crafts without injuring or even giving your teammates any effect whatsoever despite them being in attack range. Casting tornadoes? only the enemies are lifted upwards. Casting freezing or flood water art that targets the whole field? No problem!
** S-Craft-wise, two examples belong to [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky Tita's Satellite Beam]] and [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel Millium's Galactic Cannon]]. Both can be used without visible property damage around them and no allies are harmed in range. As an added bonus, you can still use Tita's S-Craft [[spoiler:in [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} distorted space]]]].

* ''VideoGame/Vermintide'', which is essentially a Warhammer version of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' initially plays this trope straight, then averts it as part of the dramatic gameplay shift between the hard and nightmare difficulty levels, turning on friendly fire for all ranged and area attacks (but not melee attacks).
