* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': Bill Cipher finally attains physical form, so he takes over the show in Season 2 Episode 18, which results in the title of the episode being changed from "Weirdmageddon" to "Xpcveaoqfoxso". He also takes over the theme song, changing "Created by Creator/AlexHirsch" to "Created by Bill Cipher", and things appear to be getting even weirder.
** Even the promos for the episode were incredibly glitchy due to his influence.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' mixes this with TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: Bill Cipher finally attains physical form, so he and takes over both the titular town and the show itself in Season 2 Episode 18, which results in the title of the episode being changed from "Weirdmageddon" to "Xpcveaoqfoxso". He also takes over the theme song, changing song and turns it into a demon-filled nightmare version, changes "Created by Creator/AlexHirsch" to "Created by Bill Cipher", replaces the [[CouchGag end-of-intro backwards whisper]] with himself telling the audience he's watching them, and things appear to be getting even weirder.

* In ''Anime/SonicX'', Eggman repeatedly expresses his desire to become the protagonist of the show throughout the first two seasons. In fact due to story events and the ending theme changing it looked like he almost succeeded at one point.

** In an amazingly inverted case, Gumball and Darwin do this ''themselves'' in "[[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS4E4TheOthers The Others]]". When they find out there's more to Elmore High than just their class, the episode starts to become a LowerDeckEpisode about a previously unseen (in the literal sense) mopey student named Clare Cooper, who's coming to terms with how she is moving to a new town and how she struggles to say her last good-byes. Cue Gumball and Darwin forcing themselves into her story in an effort to give her [[SurprisinglyHappyEnding a much happier life]] while not realizing that they're just hogging the spotlight, much to her rapidly-increasing annoyance.
-->'''Clare:''' [[LampshadeHanging Ugh, leave us alone! Don't you get it?! This is not about you!]]
-->'''Gumball:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint "Not about Chu?"]]
-->'''Darwin:''' [[ItsAllAboutMe What does that mean?]]
-->'''Gumball:''' I dunno, sounds Cantonese.

** An earlier incident had Mickey give Donald control of the House due to an emergency. Donald promptly turns the House of Mouse into the House of Muck... er... House of Yuck... erm... House of Pancakes... oh, you know what I mean.

* Pretty much [[spoiler:deconstructed]] in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', starting with the [[spoiler:fifth arc]]. Unfortunately (or fortunately, [[ReplacementScrappy depending on your view]]), [[spoiler:Battler]] was not incapacitated, and [[spoiler:the arc ends with him taking back the plot from Erika and Bern]], although there are still two or three arcs to go.

* During Cartoon Network's old Cartoon Cartoon Fridays bumpers, whenever [[WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls Mojo Jojo]] had hosting duties he would certainly try to invoke the feeling of this by abusing the limited powers he's given over the network as host (he plays around with the logo in the corner of the screen declaring himself to be in complete control of the viewers' television as a result). Of course, it's not exactly the case given that he was scheduled to take control of the block that night.

* In Part 3 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', after ZZ thinks he killed Jotaro, he proclaims the end of the 3rd [=JoJo=] series and tries to declare himself the new main character. Jotaro pops out of the ground unharmed and, not surprisingly, quite pissed.

* Wrestling/TheNexus's goal was to overtake Wrestling/WWERaw to send a message to Wrestling/{{WWE}} management for treating them like garbage on NXT. Unfortunately they attacked Wrestling/JohnCena along the way and he never forgave the group, at least not until he had [[DisproportionateRetribution literally caused]] 22 steel chairs [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment to rain down on it's leader]], Wrestling/WadeBarrett.
