*** This gets elaborated on in the book ''Angels of Caliban''. Luther and his renegade Dark Angels try to turn Caliban into a truly neutral planet ruled by neither Horus nor the Imperium. Dark Angels players know how well this ends for Caliban.

** Inverted in the latest ''[[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Power Man and Iron Fist]]'' series. Luke Cage and Danny Rand both intend to remain neutral for ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'', since they still remember how badly things went last time when they did take sides. Of course they then run into unrelated trouble because comic books.

**Conscience has nothing to do with it, non-voters are usually either lazy/uninterested, protesting something, or simply don't like any of the candidates.

* Often immediately after elections in the United States, people [[TakeAThirdOption vote for a third party or don't vote at all]] [[WhatTheHellHero get called out]] for their decision by those sharing their political beliefs. This is particularly prominent when the election results in the party elected has in little in common with the non-voter's beliefs. The people who do vote often feel that the non-voter split the vote and allowed the _> lesser evil win. However, the non-voter is quick to point off that they [[HonorBeforeReason let their conscience guide them]].

* Many heated debates online will always have people taking a side and sticking with it. People that try to TakeAThirdOption or try to make fun of both sides for their extremes will usually get called out by both sides for wasting everyone's time.

* One of AesopsFables, ''The Bat, the Birds, and the Beasts'', tells of a Bat who refused to take sides in a coming war between the Birds and the Beasts. The war is avoided at the last moment, but when the Bat tries to join in the revelry, both sides threaten to tear him apart. Probably the UrExample of this trope.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/EndWar''. Britain... Uh, sorry, the "New Commonwealth", had pretensions to be neutral in the outbreak of WorldWarIII, but then allowed European Federation troops to garrison the ICBM-shield Uplink clusters on British soil. After that, all bets are off, and Britain is now fighting for survival alongside the other European nations. {{Averted|Trope}} by Israel, who manage to remain neutral throughout the war with no lasting repercussions.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', we have Side 6, a group of colonies who not only gain independence from the Earth Federation, it declared neutrality from the One Year War. Despite this, Zeon wasn't too keen on letting it stay up if they ever backed the Federation, leading to a few attacks in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket'' when the Gundam Alex is moved into a colony there. Eventually, Side 6 was reclaimed by the Federation after the war.

* In film version of ''Film/TheTwoTowers'', Treebeard initially doesn't want to take side in the Middle-Earth conflict since nobody actually cares for trees. That is, until Pippin and Merry show him quite clearly that if Saruman wins, the forests will be felled altogether.
