* One level of the British campaign of ''EmpireEarth'' has this, with Wellington reflecting that the nobs are all drinking and partying while he's trying to push back a horde of Frenchmen.

* At the end of Season 3 of ReBoot, as the system is crashing (an equivalent of a [[ApocalypseHow Planetary/Physical Annihilation]] for the digital characters), some of the Pirate and Mainframe Binomes get together, throw a rowdy party and get drunk off their asses. Meanwhile, other characters decide it's a good time to conclude their [[RomanceArc Romance Arcs]] and make out.

* Pretty much the premise of the entire (original) ''[[Film/{{MASH}} M*A*S*H]]'' film. The 4077th staff engage in all manner of WackyFratboyHijinx as a way of keeping their sanity amid the horrors and carnage of the war.

* In the ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' series opening, the heroes just pissed off the Wraith, a race who defeated the freakin' Ancients while they themselves are cut off from Earth and any sort of reinforcements. What do they do? Party with the Athosians, of course.
* This is pretty much the lifestyle of your average [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingon]]. On the eve of battle, sworn enemies often party together and part company saying, "May you die well!"



-->'''Future!Castiel:''' Why not [[TheHedonist bang some gongs]] before the lights go out?

In TNG's "Redemption, Part II" this is used to show DeliberateValuesDissonance between Federation-raised Worf (for whom war is SeriousBusiness) and his Klingon-raised brother Kurn, who has no problem partying on neutral ground with those who were trying to kill them a short time before.



** For the Klingons, this trope is SOP.

* In Film/GoneWithTheWind, Prissy finds Rhett at a party the local prostitutes are giving, either unaware, or uncaring that the Yankee soldiers are advancing on Atlanta.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/MarsAttacks''. Las Vegas real estate developer Art Land is still holding a meeting with investors for his new casino hotel, even though the Martians are quite clearly flattening the city outside. And downstairs, some people are still playing the slot machines as the Martians are killing everyone.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'', the Autobots are devastated by the death of Ultra Magnus and theft of the matrix.. But it doesn't dampen the mood at all when they start a dance party with the Junkions just a few minutes later.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theater/MissSaigon''. Provides the page quote. Despite the raucous atmosphere, the lyrics of the opening song demonstrate that the soldiers are desperate for one last fling, and that the girls are desperate for one last chance to escape Vietnam.

* [[XWingSeries Baron Soontir Fel]], the best pilot in the Empire since Vader died, [[DefectorFromDecadence defected]] for a long and complicated list of reasons, including the fact that he and his command had been assigned to the utterly incompetent Admiral Lon Isoto. Isoto tried to make Fel cheat on his [[HappilyMarried wife]] with a servant girl, had no grasp of tactics and no sense of what a ''victory'' was, and basically just threw orgies around. Fel knew that his command had been assigned there for the express purpose of being killed by the Rebels as part of one of [[ManipulativeBastard Isard's]] schemes. With that in mind, he let his pilots attend and enjoy themselves, since it would be inhuman to deny them a last pleasure. Fortunately for them, Isoto's assassination at Isard's order meant that they ''didn't'' all get killed; if Fel hadn't gotten captured in that battle, he might have put off defecting a little longer.
