* One hour-long episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' has a nebbish offered [[OurGeniesAreDifferent just one wish]] and [[ImagineSpot imagining what he would get]] if he asked for money, fame, or power. Realizing any of these would be a catastrophic failure for him, he eventually decides that he would rather be a genie himself: he doesn't like his old life, and he enjoys being nice to people. [[spoiler: He also gets to wear some sweet Middle Eastern clothes, speak in a cool authoritarian voice, and hang out with his dog. Since it's his wish, he decides he wants to be an old-school genie. The dog also gets a turban.]]

* In ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', Aladdin [[BatmanGambit tricks Jafar into wishing to become a genie]]. Serious overkill, since at this point Jafar had already successfully wished himself to become the most powerful EvilSorcerer on Earth. Aladdin wisely played into Jafar's pride by pointing out that he was still only "second best", since someone could still theoretically command the Genie to wish Jafar's powers away. Jafar only realizes the downside when it's too late.

* ''IDreamOfAJeanieBottle'' uses this trope as the basic premise - two friends find an empty genie bottle, and when one of them--ironically named Jean--opens it, he becomes the bottle's new (female) genie. Jean is initially very resistant to the requirements of geniedom (since he is now more or less Neil's slave girl), which tends to get him in trouble with higher-ranking genies that enforce the rules. However, since he was an unrepentant ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' fanboy who wanted a slavish genie of his own it's all played for HypocriticalHumor
