* Happens a few times in ''SonicChronicles: The Dark Brotherhood''. Depending on which bit of the story it is, some characters are locked into particular parties.

** In the series finale, [[spoiler:Zuko and Katara]] head off to confront Azula, Aang goes to confront [[spoiler:Firelord Ozai]], and everyone else goes to stop [[spoiler:the Fire Nation fleet]].
** In the previous season, Aang had gone off to learn from a guru, Sokka went to meet the Water Tribe warriors, Toph went to meet her mother [[spoiler: and gets captured by the bounty hunters her parents sent to bring her home]] and Katara stays in Ba Sing Se to help plan and organise the invasion of the Fire Nation. Meaning none of them are around to realise that [[spoiler:Azula, Mai and Ty Lee]] have infiltrated the city, until Katara discovered it too late.

** In Pikmin 2 the two captains can also split up to beat certain obstacles/perform multiple tasks. With the number of captains upped to four in Pikmin 3 it's shown that this is more-or-less the point of the game.

* Played absolutely straight in ''[[GhostStoryStraub Ghost Story]]'' by Creator/PeterStraub. Heroes enter evil house, decide they need to split up for very minor reasons, and things go badly. A tiny lampshade is hung, but it's still ''idiotic.''

Added DiffLines:

* Discussed in ''Literature/TheHateUGive'', when Starr and her friends ask Chris (the only white person present) why white people always insist on doing this, pointing out how stupid it is. Chris agrees that it's stupid, but claims that it only happens in movies -- never in real life. It becomes a BrickJoke awhile later, when Seven's car breaks down, and Chris begins to suggest that two people walk to the gas station while the others stay with the car, before suddenly stopping mid-sentence and asking, "This is what you were talking about, isn't it?" Starr and the others confirm that it is.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. Subverted in "Twisted". Tuvok and Chakotay try this on a ship whose decks have been rearranged by a NegativeSpaceWedgie. They decide they need to split up to map the changing conditions, walk off in opposite directions...[[{{Bizarrchitecture}} only to end up facing each other]].

** In "Scorpion, Part One", a three man Away Team investigates an alien bioship, so there's no-one to watch Ensign Kim's back when the other two go to investigate the vessel while Kim downloads information from a data node. Suddenly Kim starts to hear creepy alien roars as the bioship's pilot becomes aware of their presence. In a subversion however Kim isn't attacked until the Away Team joins up again, so this trope was only used to build up the suspense.
