* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'': After Torquemada has come BackFromTheDead due to time travel, he finds that Termight has become a peaceful, freedom-loving society in his absence instead of the tyrannical, dystopian nightmare that it was under his rule. This trope comes into play when Torquemada tries to convince his former followers to reinstate him as Grand Master. His friendlier successor Mazarin tries to rebuff him, but finds that his minions have all sided with Torquemada.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': The angels tend to default to subservience and are confused by the concept of free will, since they were designed to be obedient soldiers in God's army. God left first, but Michael picked up the slack for millennia. Then after the archangels are locked up or killed, Heaven falls into chaos. In season 13, Lucifer suggests that the few remaining angels make him Viceroy of Heaven since they need a leader. [[spoiler:They quickly oblige.]]

* {{Shameless}} had this in series 4, when Frank was in the pub, trying to decide between his current lover Sheila, and his technically still wife Monica, because they both wanted him to decide which one he wanted to be with. He couldn't decide between them, so he elected to choose ''not to choose'. [[spoiler:In the end, he chose Sheila, but when she found out he was still legally married to Monica, which she didn't know before, she left him anyway, so Frank went to Monica instead, implying he had dumped Sheila and that Monica was the first choice.]]

* Referenced by Mr. O'Neill in ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' in the episode "Write Where It Hurts," where he tries to help Daria with a story assignment she's having trouble with by restricting her to a particular topic. It doesn't work any better than all the other tricks she's tried throughout the episode, though.
