* [[UsefulNotes/ChrisChristie]] was a fairly popular governor in NewJersey (and a rare Republican one at that) in 2011 when there was speculation that he might run for President. Christie had to have a press conference to say he was not going to run, citing that he felt it was better to put his duties as governor and the state rather than use his short stint as govenor to springboard to a better office.

* The pilot of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster''. After saving the day, Kevin is offered the choice to return to Earth. He chooses to remain in Videoland, where he is a superhero hanging out with a hot princess and his favorite videogame characters, rather than go back to Earth, where he is a normal boy having to deal with chores, school, and a nagging mother.



* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', Supergirl, Green Lantern, and Green Arrow are abducted into the future to team up with the ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes. Supergirl elects to stay in the future afterward, thus pulling a ProphecyTwist, since the Legion's records said she disappeared from the present, which they had previously interpreted to mean she'd die.
* At the end of ''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch'', Stitch, Pleakly and Jumba decide to forgo the chance to leave Earth and stay as members of Lilo's TrueCompanions.

* In the two-part ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' episode "World Without End", several Joes find themselves in an AlternateReality where Cobra took over the world.

Steeler eventually finds out that this isn't the only difference; in this reality, the Baroness is a double-agent, who was also his counterpart's lover in this world. After she and the heroes are able to help start what she calls "the First Cobra Civil War", and they find a way back to their world, Steeler decides to stay behind with her, saying there's really no-one waiting for him back home; Clutch and Grunt choose to stay behind too, upset at what happened to their alternate selves hoping to help bring Cobra down.
