* You learn in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' that most people not swept up in the zealotry of the Eternal Fire think this of King Radovid, especially his former spymaster Dijkstra. The latter considers the reign of the former king as something of a golden age for Redania and that Radovid's madness, though making him somewhat effective militarily, is driving the kingdom and the rest of the Northern Realms into a dark age. At least some other Redanians agree and join in the conspiracy to have him killed.

** After Tywin is killed by Tyrion, Cersei is left to fill her daddy's shoes as the real power behind throne and as a political intrigue mastermind in Season 5. Having no foresight nor grasp of realpolitik, she fails on an epic scale when her attempts to sabotage Margaery backfires. It shows that Cersei is no Tywin, by a long shot. Even taking the throne for herself by killing everyone else that had a claim to it is likely to lead to her getting deposed in short order, given how many enemies she makes doing it.

** Lord Tywin is an undisputed master of the game of thrones, but he is a 67 year old man and views Tyrion as a celestial condemnation and openly tells his youngest son that lawful heir or not, neither gods nor men will make him heir to Casterly Rock, though Tyrion is probably his equal, (unlike his other children or grandchildren). Unfortunately, Tyrion is repeatedly discredited. This is the main flaw exploited by his enemies. Davos uses this argument to persuade the Iron Bank of Braavos to allow Stannis a small loan just to hedge their bets.

** Note that this is only in the dub. In the original, Noah was as competent as Seto but being dead posed a problem so he adopted Seto to download Noah's mind in him. He only shifted to train Seto as his heir after Noah said that killing 97% of the world's population was of no consequence to him.

* In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', Laurel is shown to greatly struggle with this when she becomes the Black Canary following [[spoiler:Sara's murder]]. Not helped by the fact that Oliver ([[GoodIsNotNice especially Oliver]]), Roy, and Diggle see her as this and aren't [[KickTheDog shy about telling her so]]. This culminates in a villain drugging her leading to her seeing Sara beat her will taunting her over the idea that she could do it. Nyssa also initially shares this view, but changes her mind and becomes a mentor to Laurel, and Felicity points out that Sara may have been a better fighter, but Laurel is a better person. [[spoiler:Sara is eventually resurrected, and completely supports Laurel's efforts]].
** The position must be cursed, as following [[spoiler:Laurel's murder]] her replacement is ''also'' shown to be deeply insecure over her role.

* Bruce Goodkind, the richest man in the ''WhateleyUniverse'' and head of the mutant-hating Goodkind family, seems to be having this problem. Oldest son? Came out as a {{Transsexual}} and left the family. Oldest daughter? Left to be a movie starlet a la Paris Hilton. Second daughter? Not good with business and won't make an adequate businesswoman. He's left with three sons: one is a brat, but might make good (if he doesn't become a mutant, which is incredibly unlikely at this point), one who is doing a decent job, and the second-youngest, who is a complete genius who would have been an amazing heir had he not become a mutant and thus been thrown out of the family.

* Princess Zelda was considered to be this by her people in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' due to her not being able to awaken the powers that slept within her soul. Along with the pressure her father had already put on her to awaken those powers, hearing the public make fun of her behind her back only made Zelda more tense. [[spoiler: Only when Link was on the brink of death was Zelda able to awaken her powers. By that point, Calamity Ganon had already destroyed most of Hyrule.]]
