* 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.

In straight examples, [[FridgeLogic only one party will object]], because [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity there is no middle ground between the rightful mother and a sociopath who would rather have half a dead baby than none of a live one.]] In a common subversion, both claimants (quite rightly) object, leaving the would-be Solomon stumped.

* Averted in ''XMen:TheAnimatedSeries'': Jubilie 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]].

* ''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.

* Shows up in ''Series/LazyTown'', of all places. The episode "Who's Who?" features Robbie Rotten making a perfect robotic clone of Stephanie from a toy lookalike, and [[SpotTheImpostor the citizens of the town can't tell which is the real one.]] A dance-off is suggested, with Robbie, Mayor Meanswell, and Bessie Busybody as judges. The clone goes first and ends her routine with a stylish jump move; Stephanie then takes her turn with a similar routine, but doesn't do a jump. The judges think that the true Stephanie must be the first one, because her dancing was better, but Trixie realizes that only the ''real'' Stephanie would have enough self-confidence and faith in her friends' ability to know the truth to deliberately leave out a move she could easily do. This convinces Ms. Busybody and the Mayor, but not Robbie--thankfully, though, the clone turns back into its original toy form at that moment, so the question is settled. Stephanie still thanks Trixie for speaking up and figuring out her plan.

* Happens in a [[ShowWithinAShow theater performance]] in one of the JudgeDee novels: Two brothers are complaining that their brother's half of the inheritance is too large. The judge looks at both lists of bequests, and dramatically... hands each brother the other list.

* One episode of the ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' reboot has Ben fighting with VillainOfTheWeek [[SpoiledBrat Billy Billions]] over a rare Sumo Slammers card, with the latter going ballistic and attempting to steal the RV in retaliation over Ben getting the card first. When Grandpa returns, he is furious over Ben playing hooky when he should have been watching over the RV in his absence. He tears the card in half, giving one half to Ben and Billy.
