* The Death Eaters in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' are either tied with personal bonds or ruthlessly antagonistic towards each other without any qualms to undermine the other's position in the pecking order. Eg most Death Eaters were delighted when Voldemort humiliated the Malfoys and Lestrange. Also more specifically, Yaxley doesn't try to hide his envy of Snape's position and indirectly attempts to replace him, like asking him to report without really being in a hierarchical position to do so.

** Of course, Caesar's Legion get in on this. If you opt to assist the NCR in taking back Nelson from the Legion, you can later find Legionnaires who sneer at their fellows who die fighting to defend the town, smugly citing their inexperience. Also, Legionnaires regularly partake in ritual decimation, where they viciously beat other Legionnaires to death for perceived failures, and they're rather indifferent to Legionnaires who are crucified up at The Fort.

* In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean: At World's End'', Davy Jones has no problem killing a guy who just happened to pick up his sword in a fight, or [[spoiler:killing Mercer during a distraction]]. Sort of justified in that the guy in question was an East India Trading Company mook, and they and Davy Jones' crew are only allied together due to an ultimatum.

** This is actually very common in ChronoTrigger, including snakes that eat their frog allies when damaged. Knowing how your enemies treat each other is the key in surviving certain fights.

* In VideoGame/{{Warcraft 3}}, various units that use corpses care nothing whether it belonged to the enemy or not. Ghouls and Abominations eat them, Necromancers turn them into skeletons. The Death Knight and Lich have abilities that sacrifice a mook in exchange for life/mana.

* Orcs in general. From the fantasy of Tolkien to Warhammer 40K Science Fiction, the weapons may change but your Orc army is only kept together by force and fear. Given half a chance they will turn on each other and the idea of actually helping one another is laughable.
* The fifth boss of ''Videogame/CastlevaniaCircleOfTheMoon'' is a pair of zombie dragons. If one is killed the other will chew away at the corpse to recover health.
* Late into ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'', Mario and Luigi fight Intern Shroobs as common enemies. Each Intern Shroob is paired with an elderly Shroobsworth, the former riding piggyback. If the Shroobsworth is defeated, the Intern Shroob will kick it aside without an ounce of pity.
* In ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', inside the Black Omen are two-headed snake monsters called Ruminators which attack in groups. Their attack can absorb HP, which they make a priority of keeping at maximum, and they are not above attacking and outright killing other Ruminators to top off their HP. This can have the humorous result of several Ruminators taking turns injuring or killing each other for you.
* In ''Series/BlueBloods'' a group of robbers tried to hijack a subway and found that one of them was [[MuggingTheMonster carrying a gun along]]. The cops found the body of the unfortunate perp a ways a way where his mates had left him to bleed to death.

* This tips Sherlock Holmes off to the fact that plastic surgery is being employed among Moriarty's men in ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'', when one "twin brother" pushes his "brother" down after the latter had gotten shot in order to get a clear shot at the heroes.

* Happens sometimes in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. Should you kill a member of a group with a really good weapon, another mook might grab the weapon and shoot you with it. Considering the attitude of the Powder Gangers and other small gangs, this trope is likely the default attitude.
