* ''VideoGame/DoubleOhSevenFromRussiaWithLove'' plays with this. Like the film the first half of the Hedgemaze level has the player controlling a Bond impersonator in a mask rather than the real deal. After Red Grant garrotes him like in the film's prologue, the action then switches over to the real Bond being briefed on the Istanbul mission at MI-6.

If the game is an RPG and the new character has to start all the way back at level 1 this can be [[ReplacementScrappy somewhat annoying]] as it means that you will have to [[LevelGrinding LevelGrind]] to get them back to being useful. Some ''RPG''s may start the new character off at a higher level to prevent this problem.

** ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' set the precedent: Your PlayerCharacter, Bastila and Carth are captured by the Sith, and you have to choose one of your party members to bail you out. Not so difficult with Canderous, Juhani, or the droids, as they get to keep their gear. But for a challenge and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a good laugh]], pick Jolee or Mission.
