* ''VideoGame/StarWarsRepublicCommando'' makes use of this at least once per mission, allowing the player the chance to be a OneManArmy without your squadmates either [[ArtificialBrilliance doing all the work for you]] or [[ArtificialStupidity getting in]] [[StopHelpingMe your way]].

Added DiffLines:

* The people trapped by Zero in each of the ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'' games are repeatedly forced to split up to go down separate paths. Justified and enforced - only 3-5 people can go through a door at any one time, and those who can go through a door are governed by Digital Roots and their numeric bracelets. Also, if anyone passes through a door they didn't help open with their bracelets, or leave those who helped them open behind (as [[spoiler: The 9th Man]] did), they ''will'' be killed [[WhyAmITicking by the detonators in their watches]]!

* In his DeconstructiveParody [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxOI7LBywDs tutorial on making a horror film]], [[WebVideo/{{Miniminter}} Simon Minter]] notes that the group of characters has to split up, even though this will lead to them getting picked off one by one, and in some cases result in someone inadvertently becoming AloneWithThePsycho if they have the great disservice of going with the killer.

* An episode of ''CaptainPlanet'' had the team looking for a firebreathing monster. Of course they split up. It takes Wheeler and Linka all of ten seconds to completely abandon the mission and move in for a kiss... [[MomentKiller which is when the monster shows up]].

* In one of the more commonly cited episodes of ''Series/CriminalMinds'', ''The Big Game'', Reid becomes excited about an epiphany he's had and tells JJ, who he's with, that they should split up. She weakly protests but complies anyway, and it all goes to hell from there. The stupidity of their actions is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in a later episode when JJ says to Reid, "No matter what happens this time, we don't split up, clear?"

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. In "If-Then-Else", Team Machine is trapped and the Machine is running [[BulletTime thousands of simulations]] to find a way of them accomplishing their mission and get out alive. We're shown two scenarios in which the team is split, with one group to carry out the mission while the other secures the escape route, that result in them getting killed or captured. [[RuleOfThrees Only the third scenario]] shown, in which Team Machine stays together to give mutual aid and protection, has a chance of success.
