* Played with in ''Series/{{MASH}}'' when the camp looks after a DoorstopBaby. At one point Colonel Potter tells Hawkeye, BJ and Winchester, "I'm going to make a Solomon-like pronouncement. I'm going to cut Winchester in half, ignore you two and look after the baby myself."

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/XMen'': Jubilee in battle, faces Wolverine and his evil imposter standing right next to each other. When one of them throws the old line "Blast both of us; It's the only way to be sure!", Jubilee blasts the other one. The problem being that this was the real Logan that she stunned. Logan forgives her, [[GenreSavvy knowing that she acted in good faith]] not realizing that he was [[SeenItAll far too cynical to pull that tactic, especially when it's prone to abuse]].

In straight examples, only one party will object, because [[NoSympathy there is no middle ground between the rightful mother and a sociopath who would rather have half a dead baby then let someone else raise a live one]]. In a common subversion, both claimants (quite rightly) object, leaving the would-be Solomon stumped.

* In the first episode of season 6 of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'', "Save the Town", the new ruler of the thieves [[spoiler: Esme]], passes this judgement over two thieves arguing over a doll. One of them asks if he can have the legs, and they both seem quite happy with this.

* Subverted horrifyingly by the Emperor in ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}''. When asked by two brothers to rule on a dispute caused by the fact that they disagree on how to administrate the land they inherited but can't divide it on their own, instead of granting the division, the Emperor says that because strong families are the foundation of the Empire, he will remove the material things that separate the brothers. I.E. commanding that the land and property be forfeited to the Empire and the servants and tenants of the land killed.

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' has Julien fond of referencing this, but he does it in reference to a pineapple (and thus, giving each person half is actually an ideal solution) and a ball (destroying it and making both of the children cry as a result).

* On the Israeli satire show ''M.K. 22'', when the resident undercover terrorist steals a time machine in an attempt to [[PeggySue prevent the Jewish settlement of Palestine]], only to [[NiceJobFixingItVillain create the circumstances that led to them doing that]]. One of his attempts involves trying to assassinate King Solomon, who is dozing off in front of the two women, by throwing an axe at him and accidentally slicing the baby in half instead. The women are entirely unfazed and praise Solomon's wisdom instead.
