Two groups have been locked in a ForeverWar for a long, long time. Then, a third party (like TheHero) comes along and wants something from both of them. But first he has to play the peacemaker and stop the senseless bloodshed for them to work together with each other and him.

* GoneHorriblyWrong for [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra the first Avatar, Avatar Wan]] when he [[spoiler:separates Raava--the World-Spirit of Order--from Vaatu--the World-Spirit of Chaos--and thereby sets up the latter to plunge the world into a 10,000-year age of, you guessed it, chaos and darkness. To be fair, Vaatu abandoned his pride to take advantage of Wan's kindly nature and manipulate him whereas Raava was extremely condescending and dismissive of Wan, refusing to explain her motives for keeping Vaatu entrapped until ''after'' Wan had freed Vaatu. ]]

Success usually results in a very, very awkward but hopefully honest (just how awkward and honest will depend on whether OntologicalInertia factors in or not) [[PeaceConference handshake between the two leaders]] and a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for TheHero. Compare YoungLoveVersusOldHate, which can overlap with this (cf. ''RomeoAndJuliet'') but not necessarily, and VelvetRevolution, when a conflict that started off violently immediately winds down peacefully.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "A Taste of Armageddon". The planets Eminiar 7 and Vendikar have been at war for 500 years. However, for most of this time the conflict has been completely simulated on computers. When the computers tell the inhabitants of the planets that they've been "killed", they obediently file into [[DisintegratorRay disintegration chambers]] and are destroyed. Captain Kirk sabotages the computers running the conflict, which will force the two planets to fight their war for real if they want to continue it. He figures that the horror of possible planetary obliteration will cause the two populations to seek peace instead. He turns out to be right - the planets do start negotiating.
