** ''[[SmackdownVsRaw Smackdown vs Raw 2008]]'' [[AvertedTrope averts]] this by having AI opponents actually attack each other. You can be in a campaign Triple-Threat match between two guys who have been beating on you for the past ''month'', and they'll still be hitting each other just as much as you.

* The AI in ''VideoGame/{{Forza}} Motorsport 3'' will drive in tandem to prevent you from passing and gang-rape you when you try to pass.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/RiverCityRansomUnderground'', the people the PlayerCharacter is fighting are all violent gang members, but if the player manages to do something criminal and thereby summon the police, the cops who show up will ignore said gang members and instead focus exclusively on the Player Character, even in the case they should happen to be hit by one of the enemies' attacks.

* ''MS Hearts'', a card game that comes default on many MicrosoftWindows systems. The point of Hearts is for four players to compete in a series of games until someone gets over 100 points, at which time the player with the lowest score wins. One would think it would be every man or woman for themselves, but the AI players seem to pick one of themselves to be your rival, with the other two acting as sacrificial lambs, soaking up as many points as possible to help the one win.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', you can see people attacking monsters (or even each other) but if you stay out of the way, they actually ''will'' kill each other and let you attack the survivor. Other times, they'll forget whatever they had and attack ''you''. There have also been reports of dragons [[GenreSavvy luring players into the aggro radius of monsters]] and letting them cherry-tap the player.
** This is particularly noticeable when a dragon attacks while you're already fighting something else. On one hand, you'd think that anything that isn't another dragon would perceive the dragon as a bigger threat than you, and temporarily team up with you to take it down. [[GenreSavvy On the other hand]], seeing how the PlayerCharacter will probably coldly hand everyone their respective asses at the same time, they may be making the right decision in teaming up with the dragon.

Added DiffLines:

* Fairly common in ''VideoGame/Diablo3''--enemies will tend to prioritize attacking you over your companions--but particularly noticeable in an early cutscene where the Skeleton King orders his minions to kill Deckard Cain... [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny only for them to lose interest in him and start coming after you the moment the cutscene ends]].

* In ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: World at War'' as well as the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series on [[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels Veteran difficulty]], the AI will do what it takes to kill you, no matter if they have to aim for you as soon as you're seen and regardless of how many allies you've got next to you [[SpamAttack or how many grenades they've thrown has failed to]].
** ''Modern Warfare 2'' also has a specific instance of this, where you're told to let two armies battle each other, but if you move faster than a crawl, they'll drop the ongoing battle and shoot at you.
* Likewise, the A.I. in ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor: Airborne'' will auto-target you the moment you pop out of cover, regardless of how many allies you have running around next to you.

** ''VideoGame/TotalWarShogun2'' has "Realm Divide," which is essentially this trope incorporated as a legitimate game play mechanic. Basically, once your clan controls about 15 provinces (out of 65), ''every other clan'' will ally against you. You're given a severe diplomatic penalty, meaning your former allies will abandon you and you'll be unable to establish trade relations, killing your economy. To make matters worse, the clans allied against you will be [[NotPlayingFairWithResources given large stacks of veteran units every turn.]] To add insult to injury, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard AI players never trigger Realm Divide]], no matter how many territories they own.
