* Similar things are a major part of the ''TabletopGame/LegendOfTheFiveRings'' CollectibleCardGame tournament scene, with winners getting to create cards and, at high enough levels of competition, actually help determine the products' storyline. In an inversion of the FanNickname bit above, a friend of this editor's actually took his online handle from the card he created.

* 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 [[KungPow Betty]] to Captain Ass if he wanted to.

* In 1977, ''SaturdayNightLive'' held a contest for the GuestHost spot on that year's Christmas episode called the "Anyone Can Host" contest, where an average person gets to be an ''SNL'' guest host. The winner of that contest was Miskel Spillman, an 80-year-old grandmother from New Orleans who happened to be a fan of the show (and still was until she died in the early 1990s). After learning that an old lady won the contest, the ''SNL'' production team tried to get the SexPistols on as the musical guest (as it would drum up more publicity and be hilarious to have a controversial punk band as the musical guest for a show hosted by an old lady), but visa problems caused them to pick ElvisCostello and the Attractions instead. Costello's infamous performance where he stops his planned performance of "Less than Zero" to play "Radio Radio" (a song which was considered too "anti-media" to play on mainstream television at the time) instead has become one of the most iconic in the show's history. Even though Miskel Spillman lives on as ''SNL'''s only non-celebrity to host an episode, her place as the oldest host (which actually once belonged to Ruth Gordon before Spillman usurped it) was usurped years later by another old lady host: Creator/BettyWhite.
