* A contest called "Ship Survivor" on ''Blog/RWBYSubreddit'' became the basis for ''Fanfic/TheGreatMetaFic'', where ships from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' became the basis of nations in the fic. Another contest called "Ship Wars" became the basis for ''Fanfic/MetaFicAltRisingWar'', where the connection between ships and nations is even more explicit.

* Done InUniverse in ''Zelda and the Manacle of Cahla'': When Zelda first arrives in Zora's Domain, the royal priestess sisters, Asine and Asuca, are in fierce completion over who will marry Prince Tyrus. Most of the tribe has split into two factions, one pro-Asine/Tyrus and the other pro Asuca/Tyrus, and are on the brink of physical violence. Zelda helps Asine and Asuca admit the fighting was more about one upping the other than love for Tyrus, then they reconcile and call of all engagements. The factions calm down and shrink in members, while some Zoras become ''pro Zelda/Tyrus''.

* ''VisualNovel/ProjectJPDE'', as it is currently in the development stage with several new route events being made every month, has had a number of these with regards to who will get nominated that month. In particular, the March 2019 public nominations caused a massive explosion between fans of Nora Valkyrie and fans of Titania, resulting in both groups campaigning all across social media in an attempt to drum up support for their side. (Nora ended up winning by 1 vote.)

* [[TakeThat Mocked]] in a sidestory of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has a board of movie directors trying to pitch ideas for a movie about Ash. A small group of them have all the same idea, which is about pairing Ash with Misty, Iris, Serena or Anabel. Naturally, a fight breaks between them over it, while many others, including [[AnthropomorphicPersonification the embodiment of]] [[DarkerAndEdgier all things grittier and more mature in fanfiction,]] [[EveryoneHasStandards don't want anything to do with it.]]

* ''Fanfic/CorrinReacts'': Azura/Corrin or Flora/Corrin. The former has the support of the majority of the readers, the latter a significant minority who are aided by the author's hints that he ships the latter too. Of course, there has been the suggestion that Flora, Corrin AND Azura [[OneTrueThreesome simply all get together]].

* "Living in TheVampireDiaries" has wars over which OC Damon should be with. Some want him with Tori, where the others want him with Sidney (even they're supposed to be JustFriends). The fact Tori is with Stefan while Sidney is single doesn't help, nor does [[spoiler: Damon being Sidney's sire]]

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' has started seeing this between supporters of the two most popular potential pairings of the fic -- [[MakesSenseInContext Godzilla/Luna]] and Godzilla/Blade Dancer, the latter having [[AnythingThatMoves some evidence]] and the former only being up to interpretation. Hilariously, the author had no intention of any pairings, but has since started dropping hints just because he [[ItAmusedMe finds the whole situation amusing]].
