* In ''{{Manga/Bakuman}}'', this happens a few times with the main characters.
** While Mashiro and Takagi are still trying to get serialized, Mashiro gets an offer to become [[TheRival Eiji Niizuma's]] assistant. Mashiro happens upon Takagi kissing Miyoshi, and accepts the offer, believing that Takagi isn't committed enough. Eventually, Mashiro gets an idea of his own, and strongly considers going solo, not realizing that Takagi essentially came up with a similar idea himself, but didn't tell him. Luckily, with some help from their editor, the two patch things up.
** The second time happens after the group learns that [[spoiler:Perfect Crime Party, while successful, can't get an anime due to MoralGuardians]]. Around this time, one of their assistants, Shiratori, comes up with a good idea, but needs some help on the writing, so Takagi offers to help, and Mashiro, against his better judgment, accepts. Eventually, tensions come to a head, and the two stop speaking to each other until Takagi helps Shiratori learn enough to work independently, and the two make up with apologies and a fist fight.
** Averted on a third occasion when [[spoiler:controversy over a group of real-life PCP copycats]] gives Takagi a crippling case of WritersBlock. ThePowerOfTrust prevails, though, with Mashiro trusting Takagi to think of something, and Takagi coming through.


Added DiffLines:

* A wide-scale case happens in "[[PlayableEpilogue The Answer]]" segment of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''. The party, having acquired all the Keys of Time, has a very short amount of time to decide what to do with them- return to their own time or [[spoiler:try to save the protagonist from his death]]. The disagreements between those who want to go back(Yukari and Mitsuru), those who don't(Akihiko and Ken), those who want the group to be united behind one answer(Junpei and Koromaru), and the undecided (Aigis, Metis and Fuuka) come to a head, and eventually result in the various factions fighting each other. Once Aigis' group prevails, the group reconciles, and comes together to fight the FinalBoss.
* Later on in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' a more heated than usual argument between [[spoiler:Ryuji and Morgana]] over the latter's usefulness results in the latter temporarily leaving and striking out to find and steal the heart of the Thieves' next target on his own. Fortunately, he comes back.

* Many early episodes of ''PrettyCure'' tend to have these episodes, especially ones where there's only two Cures and they usually happen in the eighth episode. ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'', ''Futari wa Pretty Cure [=MaX=] Heart'' and ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar'' are those who fit this description. ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' still involved two, but was part of a FiveManBand, ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' had their happen in the fourth episode and ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' is ''built'' on this trope.
