* 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.

* An [=XSplit=] password leak from late 2015 caused several internet personalities to fall victim to this. [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinesauce Joel]] had his YouTube channel hijacked by a script kiddie for six days in early November of 2015, while [=Lyle McDouchebag=] and Website/YourMovieSucksDotOrg had their Twitter accounts taken by the same perpetrator on the third day. In late January 2016, LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} and LetsPlay/{{Lucahjin}} had their [=YouTube=] channel and Twitter account respectively taken from them by different hijackers, but the accounts were recovered in a matter of hours due to fans reporting their accounts almost immediately.
** Joel's case is arguably one of the most infamous in this decable. His channel had been taken over on a Saturday, and Google failed to respond since their employees don't work on weekends. His hijacker caused a tremendous rise out of Vinesauce fans through mocking Joel, privatizing & deleting videos to spite Joel's viewers, and threatening to hack his [=PayPal=] account to financially defraud him. Vinesauce Vinny was forced to [[WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings call out fans]] for their volatile responses to the incident, and the whole Vinesauce team now chooses to pretend that the incident never happened and urges fans to do the same, believing that giving any kind of attention to the hijacking would fulfil the hijacker's intentions (hence why the perpetrators of these incidents are never referred to by name on ThisVeryWiki).

** Even ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 5}}'' has an example. After Seraphina gains too much weight from eating curry in a cooking contest she was judging, Usalia mourns the loss... only to immediately push an advertisement for her new show afterwards. At the very least she had the dignity not to interrupt Sera.
