'''Faith:''' Wake up, old man. This isnít a fucking game. This isnít a damn Quidditch match. We ainít on the pitch here. This is motherfucking ''war''.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Comes up in "The Zygon Inversion" when the Doctor sets up a SadisticChoice in place of a war: He gives them two boxes that either do exactly what they want (that is, genocide) or will backfire horribly--and they have no way of knowing which button to push. Kate, the human representative, demands to know why he's doing this, and he gives them a tongue-lashing over it.
-->'''The Doctor:''' Because it's not a game, Kate! This is a scale model of war! Every war ever fought right there in front of you! Because it's always the same! When you fire that first shot, no matter how right you feel, you have no idea who's going to die! You don't know whose children are going to scream and burn! How many hearts will be broken! How many lives shattered! How much blood will spill until everybody does what they were always going to have to do from the very beginning: '''''SIT DOWN AND TALK!'''''

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Practically everything that happens on the show is treated as a game by everyone except [[HarmlessVillain Olaf]], who winds up using this line very often.

* In ''"The Greatest Game: Hunters,"'' one of Major Karl Bolle's first lessons to his trainees for the fighter branch after introducing himself, laying down the ground rules, going over what he's going to teach and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick saying how few of his trainees survive long enough to become aces]], is to disabuse them of the notion that dogfighting is a game.
-->'''Bolle''': An Englishman once called air combat "[[TitleDrop The greatest game]] that God ever invented." I would bet money that he now lies in a shallow grave in Flanders. [[SuddenlyShouting THIS IS NOT A GAME]]!

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Due to their BloodKnight nature, the Alethi treat war as a game, with the reward being a place battling in the afterlife. It's more formalized than most examples, as they even keep a big scoreboard in the king's main meeting room, which tracks how much money each highprince has won. The board notably does not track how many soldiers have died, and Dalinar spends a lot of time trying to convince people to take the war seriously, out of respect to the fallen if nothing else. It's also pointed out that the Alethi could easily defeat their enemy for good if they would just work together, [[WeAREStrugglingTogether but the highprinces have far more fun racing each other for the prize]].
