** 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.

* Adam Connover has been on both sides of this in ''Series/AdamRuinsEverything''. As the show's host, his RealityWarper abilities allow him to take over everything from homemade sex ed videos to a parody of Dr. Oz in the course of dispelling misinformation and educating people, [[InsufferableGenius usually against their will]]. On the flip side, those powers and control of the show can be stolen from him if someone knows something he doesn't. Which usually means that ''Adam'' is in for an unwanted lesson.
