* A considerably more mundane (but no less {{Badass}}) version occurred when assassins attempted to kill James I of Scotland[[note]]not the successor to Queen Elizabeth, that's James VI of Scotland and James I of England[[/note]], and a conspirator removed the bolt on the door, meaning it couldn't be locked. A noblewoman named [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_Douglas Catherine Douglas]] stuck her forearm in the slots, and held it there until the assassins broke her arm by shoving on the door. Unfortunately, this meant they succeeded in killing King James in the end. Legend says she took the surname "Barlass" (i.e. Bar-lass) after the incident.

* After ''Donald Trump'' got elected president, there have been people claiming that they're going to hire someone to assassinate him. People against the idea argue that Trump himself exploited this trope when he decided to nominate ''Mike Pence'' as his Vice President. What with Pence, allegedly, being a proponent of (among other things) the idea he can CureYourGays using Electroshock therapy, it's argued that Trump chose him as his [=VP=] because, as the Vice President becomes President after the acting president's passing, the idea of putting a worse president in charge would keep people from assassinating him.

* Sunset Shimmer ends up taking this role in the ''FanFic/OversaturatedWorld.'' Unlike most examples, she's definitely not distant or helpless, and immediately takes steps to not only spread her duties around but also ensure she (a) will remain grounded in the real world and (b) won't have to do her job forever.
