* In the module ''IM1 The Immortal Storm'' for the original ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' Immortal Rules, the PlayerCharacters are made to do this ''by their own patrons!'' Well, sort of. Its like this: Being Immortals, their patrons are the Hierarchs, bigwigs among immortals, and each player represents one of the four playable Spheres. (An NPC assumes the role of the Entropy Sphere.) Throughout most of the module, the players have gathered parts of a DismantledMacGuffin, which the Hierarchs assemble. Then, one of the players has to throw it into the eye of the eponymous storm, causing it to dissipate and preventing the end of existence. Whoever does so will gain a ''lot'' of power and respect for his own Sphere, and as one might assume, each Hierarchs wants that prestige going to his own Sphere. The players who defeated in this battle can't truly die (they're immortal, after all) so this is sort of a dog-and-pony show to get a bunch of JerkassGods to stop arguing. However, the losers ''do'' get restitution in the form of one new Immortal Power. Possibly serves as a warning to the players, as ''they'' might eventually be candidates for their patrons' positions.

If they refuse to fight, there is a third, humongous, deadly gladiator there to kill them. They initially fight, but Jon convinces Meghan, that as the last two members of their species, they definitely should not be fighting to the death. Shortly thereafter, Kara, Super Girl, arrives to take out the gladiators and all the guards.

* Igor Bereg's ''The Sky under the Ceiling'' involves a mild-mannered man being given a gift by a strange man after confessing how much his life sucks. The gift is a model aircraft hangar, which turns out to have a built-in ShrinkRay that turns the man tiny. He finds a WorldWarTwo-era fighter in the hangar in full working condition along with a number of manuals. After learning to fly, he uses the plane to destroy the hornet's nest in his office. However, a "friend" of his has ties to TheMafiya and finds out about the invention. The man is kidnapped along with a Georgian restaurant owner (the protagonist's new friend) who used to serve in the Georgian Air Force. The "friend" set up combat between the two with cameras attached to the planes. Both pretend to engage in OldSchoolDogfighting until the "friend" orders his bodyguards to start shooting (the bullets look like big missiles to the tiny pilots. The two pilots survive and return to normal size, while the police arrives to arrest all the spectators.

* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Batman and Superman are fighting to the death. Batman is fighting because he believes Superman is an alien menace and needs to be killed for the safety of the world. Superman is fighting because Lex Luthor kidnapped Martha Kent (Superman's mother) and tells Superman that the only way to save her is to bring Luthor Batman's head. Batman straps on the Superman equivalent of a Hulk-buster and grabs his kryptonite weapons and the battle royale ensues.
