Subtrope of NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished, and related to StopHelpingMe. Inversion of AppleOfDiscord, when a third party makes two allies ''start'' arguing - this is about making two arguers temporarily join forces against the intruder. Compare/contrast EnemyMine, when two mortal enemies join forces to defeat a mutual threat, and GenghisGambit (where the mediator deliberately invokes this).

* This is a pretty common fate for anyone who steps in between [[TenchiMuyo Ryoko and Ayeka]]. The biggest one comes towards ''Tsunami'', who finds her explanation about herself and Sasami interrupted because the two are more worried that [[SheIsAllGrownUp Tsunami is gonna be Sasami in the future]] and when she tries to get their attention, they both tell her to shut up!

* 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...
