* The Wrestling/BulletClub, Wrestling/{{NJPW}}'s ForeignWrestlingHeel stable, spent its first over 2 years as a solid unit of TrueCompanions, whether led by [[Wrestling/FergalDevitt Prince Devitt]] or by Karl Anderson and Wrestling/AJStyles. During this time, they had brought in Kenny Omega as a PsychoForHire Film/{{Cobra}} [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Wesker]] to take care of business in the junior heavyweight division as Devitt used to before going to WWE. Then on New Year's Dash 2016, the night after Wrestle Kingdom 10, Kenny followed the example of the original Wesker before him, betraying AJ Styles and convincing the group to follow his leadership.[[/folder]]

* Wrestling/ChrisJericho spent all but his first few sentences of the first Wrestling/WWENxT contest talking about how great his 'rookie' Wrestling/WadeBarrett was. When Wrestling/TheNexus was started by Barrett, who won by virtue of Jericho refusing to support anyone but Barrett, Jericho decided to cash in on his loyalty and join them, only to get beaten down and thrown aside. * From PGWA again came the story of Sin-D and Nemesis, the latter even stating Sin-D's biggest mistake was giving her students so many secrets so freely after using them to takeout her teacher.[[/folder]]

* In ''The Lion In Winter'', Henry II deliberately encourages conflict amongst his sons to toughen them up for their role as leaders. He specifically grooms his inept youngest son, John, to take over as his successor (and has a HeroicBSOD when he discovers the boy scheming to usurp him with one of his other sons and the King of France.)

* ''{{Smallville}}'': In Season 10's "Luthor" Clark visits an AlternateUniverse in which [[TheDragon he]], [[BastardBastard Tess]], and [[TheUnfavourite Lex]] all played this role to [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Lionel Luthor]]. [[SocialDarwinist Lionel]] plays the three of them against each other, hoping that the constant competition, and his belittlement of them will eventually drive one of them to kill him, ensuring that he and [=LuthorCorp=] (which is very close to being TheEmpire in this world) will have a worthy heir. None of them can quite pull it off though. Following his escape into Earth-1, the search for a new Understudy becomes a defining part of Earth-2 Lionel's character, and he makes repeated attempts to draft Lex's clone, Alexander, into fulfilling this role. That having [[spoiler: failed, he may be cutting a deal with {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} in order to get the original Lex back]].

* In Jersey All Pro Wrestling, Mace Mendoza and Buff E started going after one of their trainers, Laithon, after they brought Chris Cabana into the Christopher Street Connection. It was less turned on and more "[[CampGay turned on to]]" in this case.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' [[EnigmaticMinion Kabuto]] and [[RivalTurnedEvil Sasuke]] represent the two different types of this: the latter learns all he can from Orochimaru and then "kills" him, while the former, after witnessing Orochimaru's death, has become obsessed with carrying on and perfecting his legacy. To be fair to Sasuke, in this particular case he acted out of principle- he might have planned on dumping Oro from early on, but he only ''killed'' him because he saw Orochimaru as an evil, [[ForTheEvulz sadistic]] [[TheSociopath psychopath]] who had [[MotiveDecay abandoned whatever higher purposes he once pursued]], every bit as bad as the mass murdering brother he was training to kill. Which is exactly right, despite the irony that Sasuke himself has currently begun turning into exactly that type of person.

[[spoiler:Or so he it seems...]] ** In ''Videogame/StarcraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'', Kerrigan cultivates the Broodmother Zagara as a potential replacement for leader of the Swarm. Zagara for her part is honest about her intentions to take over if the situation rises, but she also acknowledges that Kerrigan is the better leader and is content to learn as much as she can from her.
