* Subverted horribly in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''. A clone of the [[CrystalDragonJesus Sankt]] [[GodEmperor Kaizer]] gets a CoolShip, a body to die for, and incredible magical powers. She also happens to be a BrainwashedAndCrazy little kid who's fighting her adoptive mother. Just to crown the subversion, she ''loses'' all these things, reverting to the little kid and taken back home by her mommy. She happy about that though.

* ''Anime/TransformersCybertron'': Starscream draws power from the stolen Cyber Planet Keys and [[MakeMyMonsterGrow grows to the size of a skyscraper]], bursting out of the top of a volcano. And then, he places upon his head a massive crown identical to the one G1 Starscream wore in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' and declares that he will conquer the universe. He is armyless by now, but it doesn't matter.

* Combined with what is listed as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'', where [[TheStarscream Starscream]] tries to get himself crowned leader of the Decepticons and [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption finally succeeds]], only to have the reborn Galvatron fly in and shoot him.

** In a weird mishmash of tropes, this makes Kirk's fate at the end of ''Star Trek IV'' a Dethroning Moment Of Awesome.

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'' R2, Lelouch managed to kill his father and named himself the emperor of Britannia. There were many who refused to acknowledge him, but that was before he showed them his Power of the King. In the end, after Lelouch's death, his younger sister Nunnally is crowned as the 100th Empress of Britannia. ** In NightmareOfNunnally, this happens with Euphemia. She makes her moment even better by delivering a surprisingly good [[RousingSpeech rousing]]DawnOfAnEra speech [[BackToBackBadasses that is implied to being spoken by both her and Zero at the same time, in completely different locations, with pretty much the same wording.]] * In ''Manga//{{Naruto}}'', Tsunade is crowned Hokage near the end of Part 1. Also, the manga will likely end with Naruto being crowned Hokage as that has been his dream since the beginning of the series.

* The ''ChronoCrusade'' AlternateUniverse fic ''Perfect Mind'' ends with Chrono and Rosette becoming the new rulers of the demons.

* ''TheTenthKingdom'' also has an interesting subversion: the crowning of King Wendell goes off with all the pomp and circumstance you could hope for, with tons of rich courtiers and royals in attendance, a panoply of gorgeous decorations and architecture, and a final speech just prior that borders on CrowningMomentOfAwesome. But not only does the royal toast which follows this end up seemingly killing all the guests, but it isn't even really Wendell being tested or crowned, [[FreakyFriday it's the Evil Queen's dog under a spell]]. There is, however, a genuine version of the trope later when, after the heroes have saved the day, they're all given medals and other rewards.

** ''SuikodenV'' also has a subversion with Lymsleia's crowning ceremony. It SHOULD be an awesome moment for little Lym, but seeing as the BigBad is effectively using her as a puppet and plans to use her new status as Queen to screw over the good guys even more, it's far from awesome.

* In ''VideoGame/TearsToTiara2'', [[OurGodsAreGreater Ashtarte]] crowns [[TheHero Hamil]] as Hero-King of Hispania at the conclusion of Chapter 6. With a Tiara of Wheat for Hamil and a Tiara of Flower for herself. At the end of the story, though not a traditional crowning, [[spoiler: the signal flares from the remaining legions of TheEmpire shows they acknowledge Hamil's ''Imperium'' as the new ruler of the HegemonicEmpire.]]

* Deconstructed in the ''Literature/NeverendingStory'', Bastian has gone insane with arrogance and decides to take Fantasia for himself, so he orders to be crowned as new Childlike Emperor. The book depicts the scene with strong music, but monotone. People were forced to dance and jump to it. Buildings were decorated with flags and banners with bright colors, but there was no wind to move them. And everywhere they could see portraits of Bastian's face. The depiction of the whole scene makes it sound pretty awkward.

* In ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', the Victor of each Hunger Games is ceremonially crowned by the President of Panem in a public ceremony. InUniverse, it's a moment of celebration and joy, but bitter-sweet for the tribute, as it [[spoiler: usually]] means that their District partners, allies, and friends in the arena perished.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]] * This is the traditional ending to Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s "annual" ''King of the Ring'' tournament. Of course, this being wrestling and all, they're not really being crowned king of anything, but simply being honored in a faux-coronation ceremony for winning the tourney. This doesn't stop most of the {{Heel}} winners from snapping and starting to behave as if they actually ''were'' the king of something. ** This generally involves feuding with Jerry "The King" Lawler, who had used the gimmick in Memphis for decades previous to his entrance in WWE/F.
