** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars'' has Global Defence Initiative vs Brotherhood of Nod vs Scrin. The best part of it was that the leader of Nod, [[MagnificentBastard Kane]], had [[JustAsPlanned manipulated all the three factions for his own agenda]], and without none of them realizing it.

In the mission "Operation Stiletto" as Nod, the GDI and Scrin are launching full scale assaults against each other and you have to make sure they don't completely destroy each other while you capture each other's construction yards.

* In Mister Midshipman Easy—a sea story set in the Napoleonic wars, by Captain Marryat, first printed 1836—the eponymous hero, Midshipman Easy, newly joined to the frigate Harpy, quarrels with two of the warrant officers, and insists on fighting them on the same day.
The officer charged with arranging the duel, fancying himself a mathematician, places the three men at the points of a triangle, with instructions that each is to fire at one opponent, and receive the fire from another.
Easy realizes his advantage at once.

* While the party in ''Literature/{{Below}}'' is battling a force of goblins, a tiny but agile squad of gremlins appears behind the party and attacks ''both''. The goblins and gremlins have been at war, so it's not even clear which group the goblins were trying to find in the first place. The gremlins would have been better off engaging only the goblins, but despite their intelligence they take typical "greenskin" concepts of friend and foe to the simplistic extreme.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/AMorePersonalUnion'' has a few examples:
** The Italian theater of the Great War becomes this, as the Pavian Compact is formed by the otherwise neutral northern Italian city-states to kick both the French and the Spanish out of their territory once their fighting spills into it.
** The unrest in China during the early 1600s has the Imperial court, a sizable army faction that's gone rogue out of disgust at the court's corruption, [[TheCaligula Red Tiger's]] revolutionary army, and the Jurchen invaders (the latter two eventually reluctantly teaming up), as well as numerous smaller groups, all fighting each other.
** The [[spoiler: Spanish Civil War]] has four claimants fighting over the throne, as well as having to deal with an uprising by the Muslim Moriscos.

* Battle Royale has aspects of this, both of the indirect type and the very direct type. There are several "groups" involved- Mitsuko, Kiriyama and 3 or 4 minor characters,all out actively hunting all the other students (and thus, each other), although 3-way confrontations are rare. However, there is the moment when Kyoichi confronts Shuya/Noriko, and Shogo appears, aiming at them both (although mainly at Kyoichi, because he has clearly snapped. And, obviously, who could forget the Melee a Cinq/Six in the lighthouse?

** The final boss of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' sees Perfect Chaos break free of Eggman's reins after obtaining the power of all seven Chaos Emeralds. Eggman tries to stop it himself but only ends up with another destroyed Egg Carrier on his hands before Super Sonic steps in and cleans up the mess.
** The TrueFinalBoss of ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' pits [[spoiler:Super Sonic against Eggman and the leader of the Hard-Boiled Heavies, Heavy King, in the middle of a tug-of-war between Eggman and Heavy King over the Phantom Ruby]]. The battle is fought as a DualBoss where Sonic fights both of them, each of them trading places whenever the other is hit.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheRuinsOfAnAmericanPartySystem'':
** The German Civil War of the 1920s is a three-way conflict between the Communists, the Nazis, and a more centrist movement that supports a restored (and constitutional) monarchy. [[spoiler: The latter wins.]]
** The Indian Civil War of the 40s is even more complicated. On the surface, it's the British and their loyalists vs Hindu nationalists vs Muslim nationalists vs Communist revolutionaries. But both nationalist groups are further divided by factions willing to work with each other against the Communists, and those willing to work with the Communists against the British. And there's also the maharajas, who are playing the field amongst the British and both sets of nationalists to fend off the Communists.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' games revolve around the titular War between Angels, Demons and the free-willed Transcended. Transcended can join either of the other sides instead of forming their own factions, but this serves to keep both Angels and Demons distrustful of them.
