* The various departments in behind the scenes in ''{{Series/Westworld}}'' squabble with and belittle each other constantly. Behavior, Quality Assurance, Narrative, and Livestock Management are all mentioned. Manufacturing is possibly referenced as "the body shop", but that could be the repair guys in LM too.

-->'''[[DoingResearch Research report]]:''' The resulting interceptor is squat, ugly, and capable of destroying almost anything it encounters (much like our engineers).

Added DiffLines:

* War-themed thriller ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is ([[FramingDevice notionally]]) the memoirs of a former Marine officer, and as a result the narration contains plenty of cracks at the other services, the Air Force in particular. There are also in-story frictions between the services, though these are not as serious as in much genre fiction.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' one of the NCR officer is ArmchairMilitary GreenEyedMonster GloryHound who is envious toward Rangers' achievement during the First Battle of Hoover Dam. He tries to get same honor by raising his own (ineffective but looking good) unit. Rangers, however doesn't even recognize him as rival as they have better things to do.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' one has [[ArmchairMilitary General Oliver]], head of the NCR officer is ArmchairMilitary GreenEyedMonster GloryHound who is envious toward Rangers' achievement during military presence in the First Mojave, constantly butting heads with [[CoolOldGuy Chief Hanlon]], head of the NCR's Rangers. Long story short, the first Battle of Hoover Dam. He tries Dam saw the [[EliteMook Rangers]] outperform the ordinary troopers heavily, and rightfully so, given the amount of training that the rangers have to do to get same honor by raising his own (ineffective but looking good) unit. Rangers, however doesn't even recognize him as rival as where they have better things are. General Oliver, who wants to do.be put down in the history books as a war hero, [[ExecutiveMeddling deliberately goes against everything]] that Hanlon recommends, including trying to keep the Rangers posted away from Hoover Dam. General Oliver wants to ensure the victory of Hoover Dam with [[HollywoodTactics a single decisive battle at the front lines]]. [[spoiler:GloryHound and greedy attitudes like this are what pushed Hanlon to begin sabotaging the NCR's annexation efforts in Nevada.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'' begins hammering in the rivalry in Kyros' Empire between the Archon of War's Disfavored and the Archon of Secrets' Scarlet Chorus during ''character creation'', and the game proper begins with you being sent in with an Edict (powerful conditional spell) to force cooperation or else solve the issue permanently after their infighting sabotaged efforts to suppress a rebel faction[[note]]the valley that sees the fighting is sealed and if a representative of Kyros does not claim the central headquarters of the rebels before a specific day ''everyone'' in the valley will die[[/note]]. By the end of the first act, it escalates all the way to open warfare, as the Edict did not prove enough to force them together.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ThePacific'': The Marines on Guadalcanal aren't pleased when the Army arrives--especially because they're better supplied. Almost immediately, when the Army hears air raid sirens and takes cover (not knowing that the air raids never take place on their side of the island), the marines happily raid their supplies for newer rifles, better food, and some luxuries like fancy shoes, cigars, and liquor. Later episodes also feature some Marines/Seabees rivalry, although that has more to do withe the Seabees being noncombatants than anything else.

** The Imperial Guard and the [[BattlefleetGothic Imperial Navy]] have the typical army/navy rivalry. This one is actually deliberate: After the Literature/HorusHeresy, the Imperial Army - as it was known at the time - was split into the Guard and the Navy in order to insure that no man commanded both fleets and armies.

Added DiffLines:

* Much like Canada, the Israeli Defense Forces constitute one organization with a single Chief of Staff and various highly coordinated branches. However, in contrast to most modern countries, the Navy is if anything seen as slightly ''less'' prestigious than the Army, due in part to its historic origins as part of the right-wing Irgun self-defense movement (whereas the Army, grew out of the much larger, more popular Haganah) as well as a general disinterest for sea power by the military brass and government. This has resulted in a self-fulfilling prophecy, with Israel having an unusually small Navy (10,000 personnel and only three rated warships, all Corvettes) relative to its land and air power.
