* Happened, of all people, to ComicBook/TheAuthority once, when they were defeated by G8's agent and replaced with bunch of {{NinetiesAntiHero}}s. For many people Authority are a buch of [[JerkAss Jerk Asses]] at best and {{Villain Protagonist}}s at worst, but comparing to replacements they looks like frickng saints.

* Since ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' changes protagonists every part, this was bound to happen. The goofy and cheerful Joseph Jostar is replaced with the emotionally distant and serious Jotaro Kujo.

* In an inverse of this trope, Comicbook/GreenLantern Hal Jordan inexplicably [[FaceHeelTurn turned evil]] during the ''Emerald Twilight'' arc and the role of "original hero" as described by the intro was played by his replacement Kyle Rayner.

* Intentionally done again in the '90s, when the ComicBook/FantasticFour were [[ComicBookDeath presumed dead]], and SpiderMan, {{Wolverine}}, [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]], and Comicbook/GhostRider took their places, swearing to avenge the heroes' deaths. Only three of the four were really {{Anti Hero}}es, but the extremely ill-suited-for-eachother group fought amongst themselves so much and were so bad at emulating the FF's legendary teamwork that Spidey was pretty much ineffectual in getting them to shape up and the whole team made the Fantastic Four's dysfunctional family dynamics look incredibly well-adjusted by comparison.

* [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged]] for SpiderMan in ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga''. The original aim of the series, itself a continuation of a Silver Age storyline, was an attempt to roll back the creeping cynicism of the nineties. Whilst Peter Parker continued to spiral ever downward into depression and anger, [[ComicBook/ScarletSpider Ben Reilly]] was introduced as a LighterAndSofter Spider-Man with the same set of memories as the original, a powerful statement of just how far Peter had fallen.

** EP 5 replaces [[spoiler:Battler himself]] for [[spoiler:Furudo Erika]]. It's played with irony considering the second is more or less an aspect of the BigBad and Battler is not incapacitated and actively fighting against the change.
