* In the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' doujin, ''The Silence of the Rabbits'', it is revealed that [[spoiler:Eirin made a clone of herself to handle her experiments, but the clone went evil, incapacitated her and took her place. The clone wanted to kill Eirin and take over completely, but couldn't because Eirin is a Hourai immortal and cannot be killed in the normal fashions. So she trapped Eirin in a jar while she tried to come up with a poison powerful enough to kill Hourai immortals. But sadly for her, Eirin thought one step ahead and based her template off the Udonges, so there was no way that the clone could ever have surpassed the original]].

** One of the ''Fushigi Yuugi'' novels (and its AnimatedAdaptation), ''Suzaku Hi Den'', plays rather interestingly with the concept. [[spoiler: Hotohori is TheEmperor of Konan, but the one who ''really'' should be in the throne is his half-brother Tendou. After an assassination attempt from Hotohori's StageMom Motaiko, Tendou was sent away with the intention of keeping him safe until he was ready... but then both Motaiko and the then-Emperor died, and Hotohori was stuck as the leader of the nation (when in reality his birthright isn't as strong) while Tendou (alias the rightful heir) was stuck as a commoner.]]

* In ''LightNovel/TheTwelveKingdoms'', Princess Joei takes up the role to usurp Youko's rightful place as the sucessor of her sister Joukaku.
