* In the ''VideoGame/DeptHeaven'' series, {{Yggdra|Union}} first appeared in ''VideoGame/KnightsInTheNightmare'' as a ContinuityPorn gag, narrating the tutorials and [[RuleOfFunny making loads of disparaging remarks about how she makes a better protagonist than Maria]]. As of the rerelease of the game, she has become its third heroine; she's even appeared in the concept art for the next game. Amusingly, Yggdra's own protagonist status in the [[YggdraUnion Ancardia]] [[YggdraUnison games]] is [[VideoGame/BlazeUnion slowly but surely being usurped by]] ''YggdraUnion'''s HeroAntagonist, [[EnsembleDarkhorse Gulcasa]].

* One episode of ''Series/ChappellesShow'' opened with Dave threatening to quit over ExecutiveMeddling. They decide to let him since all the sketches for the season have been filmed and they can just hire a new host, Wayne Brady. Later in the episode, Dave is shown regretting his decision and vows to get his show back. He has to fight Brady for it though, and the episode includes one of the series' most famous sketches in a flashback to Dave and Wayne hanging out a few weeks earlier (in which the squeaky clean Wayne Brady's image is parodied by [[VillainWithGoodPublicity revealing he's actually a dangerous, criminal psychopath]])

Added DiffLines:

* Happened to a radio station in Washington, D.C. back around 2003. The program director was out sick one day, and the morning DJ went rogue and decided to plug in his personal iPod instead of playing the station's normal Top 40 lineup. Despite the director's protests, the stunt received such a positive response from listeners that the station wound up changing its format to be more of a mix.

* When [[WebVideo/BumReviews Chester A. Bum]] was about to review ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'', he was called offscreen and punched by [[Literature/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas Raoul Puke]], who said he should review the movie as "he was in it" (referencing [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed a brief cameo by]] "HunterSThompson").

* '''[[color:purple:Waluigi's back! [[http://brawlinthefamily.com/comic151.html Now the page is funny again.]]]]'''
* In ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', Sara and Bani's [[FourthWallMailSlot Errant Commentary]] section has twice been taken over by Poe's other filler characters, Naga and Fran. Both occasions ended with Naga and Fran being killed (and Sara made Naga into a pair of snakeskin shoes).
* In ''Webcomic/LsEmpire'', the cast of the creators' previous comics holds one of the authors hostage since their comic hasn't been updated in 2 years (it still hasn't as of yet.)
* ''Webcomic/{{Femmegasm}}'': [[http://www.aorange.com/?p=192 "Okay you feebs, move over! Fizzy's here from now on!"]]
* Variation in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Doc Scratch suddenly takes over narration duties ''twice'', the second time [[InterfaceScrew even changing the website to a pool theme]]. This counts because the narrator is [[AuthorAvatar author Andrew Hussie]], who literally [[BreakingTheFourthWall bursts through the fifth wall]] to take the story back, knocking out Scratch in the process. [[spoiler:[[ThanatosGambit Sucker.]]]]
** Then [[spoiler: Doc Scratch returns as Lord English, and promptly shoots Andrew down.]]
** Then comes Act 6 Act 6, which [[spoiler:is basically a recap written by a very frustrated Caliborn.]]
* When ''Webcomic/{{Achewood}}'''s cartoonist took his family to Disneyland, character Vlad declared a "coup" and turned the strip into a Vlad-hosted talk show.
* In the web-{{Manhwa}} ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'', [[spoiler:Rachel]] does this at [[WhamEpisode the end of the first season]].
* General Tarquin has been attempting to engineer something like this for a while now. He views the [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick's]] quest to defeat [[BigBad Xykon]] and prevent Evil from controlling the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt calamity-inducing]] gates as a mere sidestory to the grander tale that is the struggle between himself and [[spoiler:his son]] Elan. It gets to the point where when Elan points out that the real protagonist is [[TheHero Roy]], Tarquin [[spoiler: orders that the entire team sans Elan and Haley be executed immediately]] so that they won't be able to stop him from crafting the story he wants to tell.
