* Really weirdly, in ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', one of the "heroic" characters ends up fighting many of the others as a NonPlayerCharacter in a TabletopRoleplayingGame they're playing.\\
\\
ItMakesSenseInContext. Sort of. As follows: First, Custodi's perverted comments finally get so bad that BrainBleach isn't enough and the Emperor deletes him from existence. Soon after, the rest of the [[PalsWithJesus characters who hang out with the Emperor]] play a tabletop RPG set in the ''[[TableTopGame/{{Warhammer}} Warhammer Fantasy]]'' setting with some kind of magical thing that makes it a little bit real. After going majorly OffTheRails, the {{Player Character}}s encounter some ogres led by a powerful "Gorger Lord" that recently appeared from somewhere. This lord turns out to be Custodisi, who's desperately looking for a way back to his reality. Evidently, for ''him'', it's all real. There's no recognition between him and the others, presumably because the player characters don't look like their players, and because even though Custodisi does look like himself, as an NPC, he's not seen by the players, only described by the GameMaster. He ends up being the FinalBoss of the game, although since the player characters are novices who aren't even supposed to be in this part of the world (and he's a kind of Super SuperSoldier), he's way out of their league. They don't even have weapons that could harm him -- at least without making a roll where the odds are much less than a MillionToOneChance.

This trope is particularly overused in SuperHero comics and the movies and shows spawned from them. In that genre, it long ago became cliched, not even excused by GenreBlindness. It's now reached the point of being an UndeadHorseTrope and is just as often parodied, averted, lampshaded, and mocked as it is played straight. In video games, this is one way of setting up a major character (i.e. the {{Deuteragonist}}) as a ClimaxBoss, as [[DefeatEqualsFriendship defeating them]] clears up the misunderstanding and makes the character more unambiguously heroic from it.

** In the Subspace Emissary, Mario and Pit fight Link and Yoshi when one team finds the other standing over the dissolving fake trophy of either Zelda or Peach. Which team finds which depends on the player's actions. In both cases, the misunderstanding is eventually cleaned up and they join forces. This is one of several such misunderstandings that occur throughout the Subspace Emissary, most of which involving Meta Knight (i.e., Marth, Lucario, almost with Snake). There's almost one between Fox and Sheik, but it is [[DefiedTrope broken up]] by [[TheChick Peach]]. ''With tea.'' The use of this strategy by a player, during a multiplayer match, is the bane of StopHavingFunGuys everywhere.
