* ''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.

When Earth itself falls to a [[AbusivePrecursors Shadow]]-backed dictator, they're paid back for their efforts when the long-warring Narns and Centauri take the lead in getting the other races to back the forces loyal to the former democratic regime.



* The episode "The Great Divide" of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' had Aang do it with two tribes of SlobsVersusSnobs.[[spoiler:..by saying that he had witnessed the birth of their conflict (since he ''is'' [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Really 112 Years Old]]), which had been twisted over the century and was in fact no more than a children's game. And once the now peaceful tribes are out of earshot, he confides to Katara and Sokka that he made the whole thing up.]]

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension's'' concluding book, ''[[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Ascension]]'', allows players the opportunity to bring a peaceful end to the conflict between the Technocracy and the Traditions, with a little help from the [[BoldExplorer Void Engineer]] master [[FriendlyEnemy Tychoides]]. At this time, the two factions are preparing their remaining forces for a battle that will probably end with one of them annihilated once and for all; however, Tychoides reveals to the players that the [[PowerBornOfMadness Marauders]] are planning to ambush and kill the survivors, before going on to dominate the world. Surrendering access to the Technocracy's command network, he allows the players to unite both sides against their enemy, resulting in a truce that lasts for the remainder of the Ascension event.
