** Also in U.S. sports leagues, teams get to draft new players in reverse order of the previous season's records, so theoretically the worst team has the opportunity to get the best available incoming pro, assuming they've scouted the recruits correctly and injury doesn't come into play.
** In some leagues, like the NBA, a playoff spot can be considered this since so many teams make the playoffs the lower seeded teams are so inferior they literally have no chance of advancing. All they get is the extra revenue for the additional home games.

* In ''Webcomic/ChampionsOfFaraus'', When Daryl loses the first round of the champions tournament,he gets a tiny dagger as a consolation prize.Since the city it is being held in is attacked by Sarengal's cultists a minute or so later, and Daryl didn't have any other weapons to use, it actually became a lifesaver for him, and he continues to use it to fight.

*** Said consolation prizes were also left unmentioned on the program for the same reasons, leading to the popular belief that the losers were left with nothing, adding to the show's infamy.



** An alternate game show used similar questions...but with a twist. Mentioning a specific Grant, or asking where Panama hats are made. In Ulysses S. Grant's tomb (which is ''above'' ground), there's both Ulysses S. Grant AND his wife, Julia! (Panama hats are NOT made in Panama, but in Ecuador.)

** A contestant once gave the proper answer of "no one" to the Grant's Tomb question. Groucho was surprised that he got it "wrong" until the contestant pointed out that Grant's Tomb is an ''above ground mausoleum''.

* In the WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures fic ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', even though Jade's DangerouslyGenreSavvy BatmanGambit to steal the masks from Section 13 fails, SOLELY due to the SpannerInTheWorks known as Agent Wisker, she still manages to escape with information on the locations of the ''other'' set of artifacts she was looking for!

** ''Series/TheCrystalMaze'' once ran a special edition of the show where the contestants were kids. They did really well but fell down at the last hurdle - the famous crystal dome, missing out on the grand prize - a trip to Disneyland. Or so they thought. In what also counts as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for the show, the host suddenly revealed that they were going to Disneyland anyway.

More conventionally, every competitor, regardless of how well they did, got a replica of one of the crystals.
