* In ''FamilyGuy'', Peter is upset that he can't find way to bond with Stewie, until he discovers that [[RefugeInAudacity beating up Lois]] is the perfect way to do it. CrossesTheLineTwice when they lock her in the trunk of a car and ''sink it in a lake''. * On ''TheSimpsons'' when Marge went after Itchy and Scratchy, the series staff did an episode where a squirrel character based on Marge tries to stop a fight, but the duo decides to knock her head off instead. Given that the only other time they've worked together against someone else was an old wartime special where they beat up Hitler...

[[AC: ComicStrips]] * In one ''Webcomic/DorkTower''/''Shop Keep'' strip in ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'', Bill is tired of the wargamers, roleplayers, boardgamers and cardgamers calling each other "freak" and "weirdo", and explains to them all that they can all get on, as illustrated by the fact he enjoys playing ''all'' those games. The entire shop concludes that he's a freak and weirdo.

* Invoked by Phule in the first ''Literature/PhulesCompany'' book, where he tells his feuding lieutenants to find common ground "even if it's just what an unreasonable son-of-a-bitch your commanding officer is".

According to the post, supporters of both heroes in-universe claim the other one was lying: -->At which point the conversation gets much, much less civil, and some folks try to smooth the waters by noting that as neither was exactly a shining figure of honesty, so really, we can never be sure that either of them was telling the truth, so it's silly to argue.\\ \\ This statement usually goes over far less well than they imagined it would, and generally ends with everyone going home in a foul mood.

* This trope, along with TheMasochismTango, is the entire point of the Edward Albee play ''Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf''. George and Martha attack each other at every turn, but take more delight in ganging up to tear apart the innocent young couple they invite round for drinks, ([[TheAlcoholic lots and lots]] [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl of drinks]]). It's heavily implied they do this all the time to keep them from killing each other.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' episode "The Other Patty", Mr. Krabs and Plankton grudgingly team up to try and steal a new competitor's secret formula. Throughout the episode, the two spend their time disagreeing and bickering with each other. It's eventually revealed that SpongeBob started the competing restaurant to help Krabs and Plankton's friendship. The two respond by chasing after him, with intent to beat him up.

suprise -> surprise
* This can happen on many internet forums. Trying to end a FlameWar between two or even more users will result in them to take out their frustration on you with heaping insults. Considering that [[{{GIFT}} it's the internet]], this is no suprise at all.
