* In ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'', this happens to Cobra Commander in the Sunbow series when Serpentor is created. Worsened after the events of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie'' where Cobra is reduced to nothing more than a pet snake for the latter. When changed back in the [=DiC=] continuation, Cobra Commander returns the favour to Serpentor by turning him into an iguana and retakes his position as leader of Cobra.

Added DiffLines:

* In Lilo and Stitch, Gantu acts as the main antagonist, though he's somewhat of a HeroAntagonist as he believes that Stitch is a threat to the galaxy and needs to be disposed of. However, after he is retired from being captain by the Grand Councilwoman, he ends up taking the role of TheDragon when he is hired by Dr. Hamsterviel, though he has a partner on his own in 625/Reuben.
** Dr. Hamsterviel himself is DemotedToDragon when he works for Delia in the anime.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Pain, thought to be the BigBad, is eventually revealed to have been the DragonWithAnAgenda to [[spoiler: Tobi]], who turns out to be the dragon to [[spoiler:the real Madara. Until Tobi [[TheStarscream kicks Madara to the curb and takes over his plot]]. Well, Madara is the BigBad again anyway, thanks to his other [[TheDragon Dragon]] Zetsu. But even that doesn't last long once it is revealed that Zetsu is actually the Dragon to Kaguya, leaving Madara not only demoted but dead.]]

* Played with in ''{{Franchise/CrashBandicoot}}''. Dr. Cortex was always Uka Uka's [[TheDragon Dragon]], but only after the latter's release in ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot3Warped'' does this become apparent and he directly serves under him. In ''VideoGame/CrashMindOverMutant'', Cortex finally tires of Uka's abuse and overthrows him, making himself the true BigBad for the first time.
