** Then there's Colonel Flagg. who is a one-man example. Who he ''actually'' works for is an open question (he routinely claims different affiliations), but here's a sample quote:
--> '''Flagg:''' I'm with the CIA [Central Intelligence Agency]. I only tell people I'm with the CIC [Counter-Intelligence Corps]. It confuses them; makes them think I'm with the CID [Army Criminal Investigation Division].

* There's some tragic backstory for a doppleganger in ''VisionOfEscaflowne.'' He was impersonating an army soldier during a war, and struck down an enemy soldier, only for the enemy to be revealed as another doppleganger--his brother.

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has this in abundance with all four heroes working to different goals and motivations, and are motivated by their particular medical specialty. Ex-Aid, a pediatrition, attempts to make the VictimOfTheWeek feel better by understanding them. Brave, a surgeon, strives to make no emotional attachments to the victim because no surgeon is right all the time. Laser, a corner, is concerned with finding out the origin of the disease as a whole, and keeps things close to his chest as he's not sure of the full involvment of the other players. Snipe, an ex-radiologist is less concerned about saving lives, but "winning" the game, and is just as likely to put lives in danger as he is to save them. As Ex-Aid is the hero, this leads to Brave being the closest to his own motivation, but he can be callous towards the victim, Laser being the easiest Rider to befriend, but the least trustworthy, and Snipe being the most knowledgeable about the Rider systems, but the most antagonistic of the four. And that's not getting into the motivations of Gemn or the Bugsters.

* The ''FanFic/SuperwomenOfEva'' fan fiction series doesn't deviates from [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion the original Anime]] much in this detail, with the titular super heroines being an OutsideContextProblem for NERV and SEELE [[spoiler:(well, not much for the latter group on some stories, having a better grasp of where they got their powers and with countermeasures of their own)]] that they seek to eliminate in order to put their beloved "[[AssimilationPlot Scenario]]" back on track without showing their hand too early to the other group [[spoiler:(such as the aforementioned "countermeasures")]].

On a few stories the Superwomen ally themselves with the JSSDF because (political bickering and potential backstabbing aside) they are the one major faction that ''doesn't'' wants the genocide of mankind.

** [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion The original series]] was no better: the [[AssimilationPlot Instrumentality project]] required a single goal: that all Angels had to be destroyed first. But NERV and SEELE wanted to be the ones in control of Instrumentality by themselves, to the point that they were constantly trying to figure out how to have an edge over the other group without showing their own hand too early (to the point SEELE pretty much tried to counter one of Gendo Ikari's measures (Rei) by ''allying themselves with one of the Angels'' (Kaworu/Tabris)). And stuck in the middle was the JSSDF (and Kaji pulling double-agent duty), just trying to figure what the hell was going on and doing its duty to try to stop the Angels while distrusting the other groups (that used it as a source for cannon fodder).

** In the United States, this can get into some strange issues with jurisditctions that have the death penalty for capitol crimes and those that do not and the crime occurs in both jurisdictions (The D.C. Beltway Sniper case of 2003, for example, had trials in both Maryland and Virginia). Typically, the death penalty case goes first while the non-death penalty case wrestles with the idea of even trying the guy if he does get convicted and sentenced to death because they can't do anything after that punishment is... ahem... executed.

* An old [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Scrooge McDuck]] story, where the entire plotline focuses on him fiercely competing with another company in some specific area (ultimately, the object [[MacGuffin was unimportant]]), spending millions on R&D and commercials in an attempt to increase his market-shares, and yet, the competitor kept coming out ahead. Finally, just when he's collapsing in tears, one of his sub-managers comes in to deliver good news: One of the corporations he owns has delivered a smashing financial report, having seized most of the market... in the same equipment, of course. Meaning he's wasted millions competing with himself.

** In the United States, an occurrence of this almost always results in the Supreme Court hearing the case. At the Federal Court level, the different districts can reach some wildly different conclusions on the same case. The 9th Circuit Court (The largest and most likely to be overturned) hears all cases for most states west of the Rockies and some east or on the Rockies. However, there decisisons are only applied in those states. The 12 Circuit Court (on the East Coast) can come up with some other decision and only applies to those states. The supreme court, will hear the case to unify the whole situation.
