** In ''Film/AntMan'', Scott is infiltrating a warehouse to get a piece of tech, only to realize too late that it's now an Avengers facility. When [[spoiler:the Falcon]] responds to the intruder alarm, Scott tries to introduce himself and talk his way in, but [[spoiler:Falcon]] rightly doesn't trust the stranger and a fight starts.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Ultimatum", the Ultimen have literally no valid reason whatsoever to fight the Justice League other than deciding that, [[CloningBlues as failed clones who have ludicrously short lifespans]], defeating the Justice League will make them be remembered after they die. Batman and even their [[TokenGoodTeammate own teammate Longshadow]] are ''very'' quick to point out how flawed their logic is and how pointless it is to fight for no reason, with Bats even believing that such irrational behavior has to be the fault of their minds deteriorating. It also happens to be one of the most genuinely tragic examples of this trope.


** Another Foghorn Leghorn cartoon has Daffy Duck as a salesman, selling traps to both Foghorn and Barnyard Dawg in what turns into an escalating prank war. Daffy gets sloppy however in the end when he sells both same kit. Upon seeing each other setting up the same trap, they quickly realize Daffy's game, and team up, [[HoistedByHisOwnPetard trapping Daffy in the very trap he sold them.]]

Added DiffLines:

*This was the plan of the Yugoslav nationalists who arranged the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914. And it worked. The action forced a fight between the Triple Entente (Britain, France and Russia) and the Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy). They knew Austria-Hungary didn't have the economy or the political power to sustain a war on such a large scale. With the army off fighting in foreign lands, local rebellions ate away at Austria-Hungary's territory and it eventually went bankrupt. Though perhaps they got a bit more than they bargained for, in starting the first World War.


* There are cases of [[BarBrawl bar fights]] starting this way. A DirtyCoward troublemaker will rile up a huge crowd and then run away.



* A less violent example might be bringing up a topic you know will inspire an argument between friends you're introducing to each other.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/MoreDeadThanAlive'', Billy attempts to goad Cain and Cassidy into having a gunfight: first siding with one of them, and then the other, and even handing Cain a gun when he says doesn't have one. It is only Cain's steadfast refusal to pick up the gun that prevents a fight. As Billy's pleas for them to shoot each other become more desperate and pathetic, Cassidy realises how stupid the whole thing is and walks ways. Billy suffers a VillainousBreakdown as he sees that the shootout isn't happening.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/CodePrimeR1Rebellion'': Megatron mostly ignores Britannia beyond assisting Charles with finding Energon because he wants the humans to find Optimus, and believes that backing Britannia is the most effective method of doing so - he knows Optimus won't allow innocents to be subjected to the cruelty Britannia practices on a daily basis and is waiting for Prime to take a stand. [[spoiler: Optimus finally obliges during Chapter 5, to Megatron's delight]].

** An accidental (and much less serious) example occurs in an earlier episode of the same show. A CBI team gets a report of lights on inside a vacant house that may be connected to the abduction they're investigating. It turns out that the reason the lights were on is because ''another'' CBI team had been called to the same house to investigate a body found inside. Fortunately, both teams are based in the same office and are familiar with each other, so the agents recognize each other before anyone actually gets hurt.
