* During ''FanFic/FantasyOfUtterRidiculousness'', Suika Ibuki accuses Coop--and Megas by extension--of stealing her prized sake gourd. Not knowing who she was or what she was talking about, Coop denies it and rebuffs Alice when she tries to warn him that it wasn't an ordinary little girl he was dealing with. This prompts Suika to super-size herself and punch Megas away from her, followed by her reciting the trope name almost word for word:



* ''Fanfic/GodSlayingBladeWorks'': Shirou Emiya kills the evil god Angra Mainyu and gains his powers in the process. Perseus senses Angra's energy within him and attacks, thinking Shirou actually is Angra. Shirou is forced to kill him in self-defense, and Perseus realizes his mistake in his last moments.

* Hinted to have happened in ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'', while it's not overt, it's implied that the government was hoping that the terrorists that took over the Turin nuclear plant and the politically-dangerous Section 2 (an agency that uses {{Child Soldier}}s) would take each other out. [[spoiler: There were enough Section 2 survivors left that the government just said 'screw it' and declared ''them'' terrorists, arresting them all.]]

* The [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers G1 Transformers cartoon]] has a few examples of its own. Season 3 twice contrives a way to have Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime fight (once when Optimus has been brainwashed by the Quintessons, once when Rodimus has been infected with the Hate Plague). Before that "War of the Dinobots" saw Megatron manipulate the three original Dinobots into attacking Optimus Prime. Then the two new Dinobots turn up and...clue's in the title.

* In episode 22 of the third season of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' Riven mistakenly believes that Nabu (at the time using the fake name Ophir) is trying to steal Musa from him due to a NotWhatItLooksLike situation, and when he arrives at the Red tower where the others are, everyone but Nabu has been knocked unconscious after a fight with the guardians of the Red tower, and Riven assumes that Nabu was responsible for that as well. Before Nabu gets a chance to explain what is going on, Riven attacks him and Nabu has to fight back. Luckily, the others regain consciousness, stop the fight, and clear up the misunderstanding.

* Brianne Drouhard has made [[https://twitter.com/Fyre_flye/status/333809817460297730 a little animatic]] of [[WesternAnimation/AmethystPrincessOfGemworld Amy Winston]] clashing with the "Burrito Bandit" (implied and later revealed to be Batgirl of ''SuperBestFriendsForever''; there's evidence that both are very skilled with computers) online and swearing to ''find'' her. The creators of both shows seem to agree that they would end up as best friends. However, she has also gone on the record as saying that actually animating it would get her arrested.

* In the Charlie Daniels song "Uneasy Rider", the protagonist attempts the heroic version of this when he stops at a bar in Jackson, Mississippi, and the rednecks threaten to hurt him for looking like "one of those long-haired hippie-type pinko fags." He accuses one of them of being an undercover FBI agent who's trying to infiltrate and destroy the [[TheKlan Ku Klux Klan]]. The ploy doesn't quite work, but the protagonist manages to distract everyone long enough to run out to the parking lot, get in his Chevrolet, and obtain a measure of revenge by pretending to run the rednecks down when they come out to chase him...before making his escape and heading for Omaha.

* There are cases of bar fights starting this way. A DirtyCoward troublemaker will rile up a huge crowd and then run away.
* Some old-school American conservatives - Pat Buchanan most notably - have argued in recent years that the United States should have done the passive version of this trope during WorldWarII, staying out of the war entirely and letting [[EvilVersusEvil Nazi Germany and Communist Russia annihilate each other]]. On the other hand, Harry Truman argued that the U.S. should enter the war on the side of which of the two combatants was the weaker in order to neutralize the greater threat. Winston Churchill, meanwhile, asserted that the Nazis were definitely the biggest threat and that the Allies should [[EnemyMine team up with whoever opposed the Nazis, even if it was the Devil himself]].
