* ''Film/TheRugratsMovie'': Phil, Lil and Chuckie abandon Tommy and Dil in the forest when the twins get sick and tired of Tommy constantly protecting Dil over them. In the twins' case, though, it may be more of WithFriendsLikeThese, as they've been shown to abandon ship whenever things go wrong for them.

* In ''WebAnimation/XRayAndVav'', the titular heroes are split up in "The Anti-Vav Ray" thanks to [[spoiler:The Mad King]] initiating a SadisticChoice on Vav in trying to save either X-Ray or Ash Samaya. When Vav saves Ash, X-Ray is furious and storms off hurt. What Vav doesn't know, what X-Ray won't tell him and what Hilda is hoping would get through their minds is that X-Ray is jealous of Vav's infatuation with Ash and they're both acting like a bunch of children. [[spoiler:What X-Ray won't tell ''anyone'' is that this was because the Mad King manipulated X-Ray and used the SadisticChoice to prove it to him.]]

* A variant occurs in ''Film/ANewHope'', where Han Solo leaves just before the Death Star arrives, on good, if bitter, terms with the heroes. His exchange with Luke in particular is pretty cordial, but his desire for money, not dying, and settling things with Jabba outweighs any loyalty he may feel. Until, of course, he comes swooping in at the last second to save Luke and secure his final trench run.

* One ''SavedByTheBell'' episode featured [[HighSchoolHustler Zack]] and [[HollywoodNerd Screech]] making a friendship bracelet business only to be upstaged by the rest of the SixStudentClique, who were selling [[ShamelessRipoff "Buddy Bands"]]. Before the last commercial break, Screech quits (albeit after Zack, desperate for sales, gives Screech away as a "friend for an hour"), leaving Zack alone. This example is unusual in that it did not result in a ThePowerOfFriendship moment, it instead resulted in Zack exacting revenge by destroying their business by buying a Buddy Band and giving it to the school principal, [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame whose proud display of it makes it instantly unpopular to wear]].

* Because it necessarily leaves out much of content the book, Ron's falling out with Harry in ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' seems somewhat jarring and puzzling.
