** 11 years later, it got a sequel, ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'' this time with the focus on a Inhuman being discovered who can see into the future and it being argued by the heroes if they should use his powers to stop disasters before they happen or leave it be before they end up [[SelfFulfillingProphecy causing the disasters themselves]].
* ''ComicBook/SecretWars'' in which a being named the Beyonder pits good and evil in an experiment to see who would win. It got a sequel sometime later, a somewhat sequel in "Beyond" a few years down the line with a similar premise and a remake in 2015 which had the remnants of the destroyed main and Ultimate Marvel universes fused together into one planet ruled over by Doctor Doom.
* ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' had the two superhero teams facing off over the fate of a mutant girl who, supposedly, will inherit the Phoenix Force when it returns to Earth and the conflicting sides trying to handle the situation to prevent a disaster.
* ''ComicBook/InhumansVsXMen'' which saw the X-Men trying to defeat the Inhumans before the Terrigan Mist, which turns out to be fatal to mutants, kills them.

** Dressrosa arc ends up devolving into this once it was found out that the current ruler, Doflamingo, was evil with and secretly enslaving people and having them be forgotten via a Devil Fruit user in the process. Doflamingo doesn't take kindly to this and traps the entire island in a cage of string where the only way out is to defeat him. [[spoiler: Plus there's the added urgency of the cage ''shrinking'' and threatening to slice everyone having to get past his forces to stop him.into ribbons if he isn't stopped.]]

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare'' 2 and 3 are more or less the war arcs of the Modern Warfare with most of the world fighting World War 3 against Russia after Russian extremists instigate it by framing the U.S for a suppose terrorist attack on Russian soil. The second shows the start of the invading forces attacking the Washington D.C and fighting to reclaim the White House as events go on elsewhere to find the real culprit. 3 is a continuation of this with the war in full swing while the main characters close in on the mastermind and try to prevent his plans from escalating further.

Granted in the first game you fight in a few wars too but they're mostly foreign civil wars and a means to an end to track down the main villain. The second game however shows how the Big Bad got Russia riled enough to begin the war shows the start of the invading forces attacking the Washington D.C and U.S Soldiers fighting to reclaim the White House as events go on elsewhere to find the real culprit. 3 is a continuation of this with the war in full swing while the main characters close in on the mastermind and try to prevent his plans from escalating further.

* The Whitebeard War saga in ''OnePiece'', especially the Marineford arc, where dozens of incredibly powerful characters from throughout the series clash in a massive conflict between pirates and the government. Interestingly, this one doubles as a RescueArc, as the pirates storm marine headquarters to save their comrade [[spoiler: Ace]] from a public execution.\\
\\
It's also unusual among both war and rescue arcs for a couple of big reasons: almost none of the main cast are present (the protagonist is there, but none of his TrueCompanions) the hero is actually one of the weaker people on the battlefield, and [[spoiler: the antagonists win the war. The rescue also fails, with the character they're trying to rescue getting killed.]]
** Since most arcs in One Piece involve the Straw Hats arriving at a new location and getting involved in local conflicts between various factions, war arcs are actually pretty common. Notable examples include Alabasta and Skypiea.
** Not to mention The Enies Lobby Arc, where the Straw Hats declare war on the ''entire world government'' to [[TrueCompanions save a member of their crew]].

to:

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': The crew have been caught up in a few of these from time to time.
** The first major one was Alabasta due to trying to help Princess Vivi stop a civil war in the country and the instigator, Crocodile, who started it.
** The second Skypeia where inadvertently get caught between a war between natives of a land of Earth shot up into the sky and the current ruler of the sky land and his forces.
** Enies Lobby is probably the first time where they ''lead'' the charge of the war. In this case, the Straw Hats declare war on the ''entire world government'' to [[TrueCompanions save a member of their crew]].

In the finale.post-war era, this was then mainly replaced by the wars the Covenant remnant have been fighting with both the Swords of Sanghelios and the UNSC.
