* In ''Film/YamatoTakeru'', the hero ends up fighting his [[BattleCouple future love interest/adventuring companion]] Oto Tachibana when they first meet, because the latter mistakes him and his friends for the thieves who stole her shrine's sacred mirror. The misunderstanding is thankfully cleared up before anyone can get seriously hurt.

* A lot of Eastern European historians (especially Polish ones) accuse the USSR of employing this tactic during WWII. They argue that once the Red Army had dealt a mortal wound to the German military at Leningrad and Stalingrad, they took their time "liberating" the rest of eastern Europe. This was done so that partisan groups would wear themselves out fighting the Nazis and anti-Soviet resistance would be minimal.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' has most of the initial encounters between the pilots of the five initial Gundams, who actually belong to ''the very same resistance movement''. [[JustifiedTrope There's actually a good reason for it]]: the movement's initial plan was to use the Gundams as an invasion force after executing a [[spoiler:ColonyDrop]], but as soon as they found out the pilots and their cells ditched the plan and launched a guerilla campaign... And, [[PoorCommunicationKills as they belong to]] ''[[PoorCommunicationKills different]]'' [[PoorCommunicationKills belonging to cells without contact with each other, they have no idea they all had the same idea and think the other Gundam pilots are there to continue the original plan and kill them for desertion upon encounter]].

* ''FanFic/FateStayNightUltimateMaster'': Ben and his servant Avenger against Saber and Archer. Ben and Avenger are always the one '''being''' attacked and are just defending themselves (with one exception, and even then there was a justification). Saber, Archer and Rin are too busy seeing him as a threat (actually outright attacking him on sight) to [[PoorCommunicationKills actually stop and talk with him and realise he]] doesn't want to win the Grail and is [[GenreSavvy wary of it's]] [[JerkassGenie wish granting ability]].

* The Illusion School of magic in the ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has a few spells that can utilize this. Skyrim has the Fury spells which send opponents into a blind rage, causing them to attack friend and foe alike. It is also possible to come across two or more members of opposing factions battling one another, and simply sit by and watch them duke it out before [[CombatPragmatist finishing off the winner]].
** For a more storyline-driven example, in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' it's revealed that the Aldmeri Dominion have been carefully manipulating the Stormcloaks and Imperials into a war with one another, as part of a plot to [[spoiler: completely remove Talos -- and, eventually, ''all humans'' -- from Nirn.]]

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
**
The series' Illusion School of magic in the ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has a few spells that can utilize this. Skyrim has this.[[note]]Several of the Fury following spells which have been classified differently at various points in the series, but are primarily classed as Illusion.[[/note]] The "Frenzy/Fury" spells send opponents targets into a blind rage, causing them to attack friend and foe alike. It is also possible "Rally" spells bring a neutral target into the fight on the side of the caster. "Command" spells put the target under the command of the caster, and can be used upon otherwise hostile opponents. A MasterOfIllusion can do quite well by simply getting enemies to come across two or more fight one another, and then [[CombatPragmatist finish off the (weakened) victor]] once the spell wears off.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'':
*** A number of random world encounters include
members of two opposing factions battling one another, and another ([[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters Stormcloak rebels]] vs. [[RedshirtArmy Imperial soldiers]], Stormcloaks soldiers vs. [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]] justicars, [[CreatureHunterOrganization Vigilants of Stendarr]] vs. [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]]/{{Necromancer}}s/[[ReligionOfEvil Daedra worshipers]], etc.). Depending on your allegiances, you can aid one side against the other, or simply sit by back and watch them duke it out before [[CombatPragmatist finishing off slaughter the winner]].
** For
weakened winning group.
*** In
a more storyline-driven example, in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' crossing over with EnemyCivilWar, it's revealed that the Thalmor-led [[AntiHumanAlliance Aldmeri Dominion Dominion]] have been carefully manipulating the Stormcloaks and Imperials Empire into a war with one another, as part of a grander plot to [[spoiler: completely remove Talos -- and, [[spoiler:weaken them both for an inevitable Second Great War, and eventually, ''all humans'' -- from Nirn.exterminate [[KillAllHumans all of mankind]] as part of an ''even greater plot'' to [[OmnicidalManiac unmake the mortal world]]...]]

* In ''Series/TheDefenders2017'', ComicBook/LukeCage and Danny Rand / ComicBook/IronFist run into each other while WorkingTheSameCase and come to blows. The first minute or so is completely one-sided in Luke's favour, as nothing Danny does [[SuperToughness can make him budge an inch.]] It takes a direct hit from the Iron Fist to do any actual damage.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': When Wilson Fisk can't directly get rid of an inconvenient ally or an outright enemy, he'll set up these situations as an indirect way to get rid of the problem. In season 1, Fisk escalates the conflict between Matt and the Russians, so that the Russians are in a position where Fisk can target them with bombs, and then sends in the corrupt cops in his pocket to kill the survivors. Later on, when Nobu gets too insistent that Fisk immediately fulfill his part of the Hand's deal to acquire Elena's property for Midland Circle, Fisk sets him up to fight Matt in the hopes that they kill each other. In season 2, Fisk does a series of orchestrated moves to get Frank Castle into his jail, then gets Frank to kill Dutton and his entire crew, which allows Fisk to keep his hands 'clean'. When Frank thwarts Fisk's attempts to have him killed after getting rid of Dutton, Fisk then arranges for Frank to be released knowing that Frank will go out and kill off lots of criminal rivals who may pose a challenge to Fisk on his release from prison.
