* The beginning of the music video for Loverboy’s 1983 single "Queen of the Broken Hearts" features a bit of a young woman operating a futuristic machine. This was the winner of an {{MTV}} contest.

* As a joke for ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14293468/homestuck-adventure-game Kickstarter Project]], AndrewHussie offered to canonize the [[OriginalCharacter fantroll]] of anyone who donated $10,000 or more. Well, two people took him up on that offer. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007866 And here they are!]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007867 And now they aren't.]] (They didn't donate enough to have them survive for more than a single panel).

** From the same company, during the popularity peak of the ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'' series, Konami organized the "Tokimeki Teens" marketing program. In there, they selected one idol among a bunch of candidates, and this idol would get [[AsHimself her fictionalized version of herself]] in the ''Drama Series'' games of the series, as well as being able to produce various songs. The winner of this contest was Mie Kuribayashi. Let's just say she quickly fell back in the shadows after the ''Drama Series'' were done.

** The two-parter "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" had a contest wherein the person correctly guessing the resolution to the season-ending CliffHanger would be animated into an episode. Nobody won the contest, however: Only one viewer correctly followed the episode's trail of evidence and concluded that [[spoiler: Maggie]] did the deed, but that person never signed up for the contest.
** Much to {{showrunner}} David Mirkin's chagrin, the terms of the promotion forced him to declare a winner out of a batch of one thousand random samples, all incorrect. As he notes in the season 7 DVDCommentary, they just picked a woman who guessed that Smithers did it, paid her off, and no one even noticed.

* ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'' had a contest to celebrate their 100th video. The contest winner had his likeness drawn into the ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' spoof, as the Imperial Officer who reports to Palpatine that the exhaust ports have been replaced with a giant passageway straight to the core reactor on the new Death Star.

* Kind of in ''ComicBook/KickAss'', but going a bit beyond it: Dave Lizewski, winner of a charity auction and contest to name the main character, named him after ''himself.'' Which is rather fortunate because he could have named the character anything from [[Film/KungPow Betty]] to Captain Ass if he wanted to.

* Used in the first book of Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy. Two fans won a charity auction to get their names in the book; whether or not the second one lived or died was up to the first fan. So after [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cris_Pieterson Cris Pieterson's]] tractor beam failed due to a trick of Luke Skywalker's, he tried to pin the blame on his superior officer, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Colclazure Colclazure]]. Thrawn had Pieterson [[YouHaveFailedMe killed]] for borderline insubordination, failure to adapt, and as a lesson in the difference between mere errors and worse mistakes. Colclazure was merely reprimanded. It's likely that one of the two would have died either way - this was one of Thrawn's important character moments.
