* This is implied to have been the case for the Trainer-Ranger Wars mentioned in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines''. The last one ocurred around forty years before the beginning of the story, and even in the present time there's considerable animosity lingering between the Trainer and Ranger nations. Lt. Surge, a veteran of the last war, is implied to have lost many comrades and witnessed many horrors during his time in the military.

* ''Webcomic/TheGreenEyedSniper'' is partly focused on war and its consequences. None of the characters enjoy war: Shanti is known to [[https://infectedbloodcomics.com/2016/08/01/part-3-page-45/ hate war (and soldiers)]]; Blitz hates violence in all forms; and Sekhmet, although a wanted war criminal, claims to be [[https://infectedbloodcomics.com/2016/07/04/part-3-page-41/ fed up with war]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Uber}}'' takes place in a AlternateHistory World War II where Nazi Germany was able to create superhuman soldiers during the last days of the war. Though they are able to save the Nazi's from the brink during the Battle of Berlin, the most destructive conflict in human history soon turns even worse, as the Allies gaing the ability to create their own Ubers which escalates the war to even more catastrophic proportions. A German general goes as far as [[AteHisGun committing suicide]] when he realizes the Ubers will only prolong the war and even more people will die as result. To cap it all off, its stated that its too late for the Nazis to win (as they were left too debilitated following the fighting), but at least they can make sure everyone else ''loses''.

* ''ComicBook/{{Birthright}}'': This trope features heavily in the backstory as the fantastic world of Terrenos is locked into a ForeverWar against a EvilOverlord that wants to spread his control further and beyond. The fighting took its toll on Terrenos' greatest heroes, who realizing that they were not making any progress in defeating their enemy, they chose to flee to Earth and place a protective barrier on Terrenos to contain him instead. Without its protectors, the people grew desperate and ended up kidnapping a teenager from our world (the main protagonist) who was supposedly fated as TheChosenOne to save them. He ''too'' hit the DespairEventHorizon after witnessing so many horrors, but unlike his predecessors, [[FallenHero he]] [[DealWithTheDevil stroke a deal]] with the BigBad to become his [[TheDragon Dragon]] and return to Earth to help him merge it with Terrenos. Its also implied that [[spoiler:the war is taking a toll on the BigBad too and he might not be as evil as we are lead to believe]]. In short: war makes monsters out of all of us.

** The Great War in [=RWBY's=] history was as terrible as it sounds. One hundred years of political and cultural tension erupted into ten years of brutal conflict between the alliances of Mistral and Atlas against Vale and Vacuo. Countless soldiers died in battle and just as many villages were lost to [[TheHeartless Grimm]] attacks while all of their capable fighters were drafted in the war. Humanity came perilessly close to extinction until the final battle in Vacuo.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': General Ironwood and Professor Ozpin do not agree on how to handle threats of war and terrorism. Ironwood throws military might at problems whereas Ozpin prefers investigation before making a move. Glynda mentions that Ozpin has experience everyone else lacks and he is implied to be unusually ancient, probably having lived through Remnant's last war of 80 years ago. Although Ironwood thinks Ozpin is prepping his students for war, Ozpin is actually hoping the kids [[PreventTheWar never have to fight one]].

* TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'s Acheron plays this literally: the LawfulNeutral (leaning Evil) afterlife, it forms the counterpoint to the ChaoticNeutral (leaning Good) WarriorHeaven of Ysgard. Souls who die happily in pointless conflicts, fight for its own sake, or serve evil war gods wind up here. They are now forever conscripted in eternal and utterly pointless conflicts over near-resourceless and openly hostile land that no sane person would want to own. If the endless bloody battles don't get to you, don't worry; the occasional rains of steel, random petrification, or giant war cubes crashing into each other will do the trick. Part of the reason the commanders in Acheron's many pointless conflicts need to recruit at all is that armies tend to quickly disintegrate into broken, warring factions - even if they did have a goal in mind at the start, a mix of terrible conditions and the already-latent BloodKnight leanings of the soldiers inevitably results in their goals being reduced to "kill everyone, starting with all the other armies."

While war in reality is a living hell, it is traumatizing to many who experience it. Therefore, UsefulNotes/RealLife examples are redundant.
