* Ash tries this in ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie''. It ''does'' stop the battle, though he probably should have waited until ''after'' the BeamOWar had ended before running in. [[spoiler: He dies. Momentarily.]]

* The climax of the Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar book ''Owlsight'' consists of two powerfully spiritual creatures (a [[SapientSteed Valdamaran Companion]], and a totemic tribal spirit) holding off their respective armies long enough for the protagonists to solve their grievance.



* Obi-Wan, Luminara Unduli and her apprentice attempt that in ''{{Star Wars Expanded Universe}}''. The armies attack THEM instead, but they somehow manage to destroy all their weapons without killing anyone. Must be the Force.



* In Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick, Hinjo stands between Miko and Belkar just before she can kill him. Only two characters and not two armies, but the lines are awesome:
-->'''Miko:''' You would stand between me and this murderer?
-->'''Hinjo:''' I'll stand between any two murderers I wish.
** In a later strip, Elan attempts this by telling his ArchnemesisDad (who is trying to kill the leader of Elan's team because TheyWereHoldingYouBack) that "If you want Roy dead, you'll have to kill me first." Bone-chillingly [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when the dad stabs his sword ''through Elan and into Roy'', after confirming that Elan is [[RPGMechanicsVerse at full health and hence will survive the blow.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in "The Dance of the Hours", one of Giovannino Gaureschi's ''[[Literature/DonCamillo Don Camillo]] stories. Things between FriendlyEnemies Don Camillo and Peppone escalated quickly and both grabbed a bench to clobber the other with; one of Peppone's men, Smilzo, is the only one who keeps his head and tries in vain to stop Peppone until he's right between the two benches. The fight is broken up by something entirely unrelated, and Smilzo is left standing alone in the middle of the square. Then, since nobody's watching, he goes to [[INeedAFreakingDrink get himself a Coca-Cola]].

* Happened at the climax of Creator/AlanMoore's ''[[DRAndQuinch D.R. & Quinch]] Get Drafted'' with the entire gang caught between the enemy Ghoyogian Army and their own Space Marines platoon [[spoiler: with whom they're in trouble for creating a friendly fire incident with a tactical nuke]]. Waldo attempts one plea for sanity by stepping up to "cry out at the horror and injustice of war..." It doesn't work.

* In ''{{Escaflowne}}'', as Van's HumongousMecha is getting [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomped]] by the Phlebotium-enhanced leopard twins, Merle runs out and interposes her tiny little self in front of him. The twins back off from delivering the killing stroke because she's a catgirl like them.
