* Similar to ''NoMoreHeroes'' above, in ''MadWorld'' you ascend the ranks of the gladiator game by killing those above you. Unlike ''No More Heroes'', you don't need to be directly below their rank to gain it. Which is just as well, since you start out ranked 256th. Thankfully, killing the very first boss cuts that nearly in half, putting you at rank 198. Unfortunately, subsequent bosses ranks are much closer to each other, so you don't climb the ladder nearly so quickly after that.

** In ''Literature/{{Dune}}'' the Fremen traditionally determine leadership via DuelToTheDeath, but when it comes time for [[MessianicArchetype Paul]] to take command of the tribes from Stilgar he refuses to fight, stating that it would be a waste of a good future lieutenant.

** In ''Literature/{{Dune}}'' when it comes time for [[MessianicArchetype Paul]] to unite the Fremen tribes, he must first be recognized as the leader of the tribe he's been adopted by. But the Fremen traditionally determine leadership via DuelToTheDeath, but when it comes time for [[MessianicArchetype Paul]] so to take command of the tribes from Stilgar he would have to kill his father-in-law, friend, and valuable general Stilgar. Paul refuses to fight, stating that it would be a waste of a good future lieutenant.lieutenant. He [[TakeAThirdOption takes a third option]] by having the tribes swear their allegiance to him as their ''Duke'' rather than as a tribal leader, thus he doesn't need to kill Stilgar ''and'' he has the locals endorsing his claim to being the rightful ruler of the planet within the framework of galactic politics.

This is a sister trope to YouKillItYouBoughtIt. However in that one you kill someone, purposefully or accidentally and gain something of theirs. That could be a physical object or something more metaphysical like a role in life or a {{curse}} and you donít need to have a system that puts the character in a position to get the job. This requirement of a rank to get into for a Klingon Promotion means it will show up in connection to different sorts of organisations.

** Also we have the Skywalkers: Anakin (the eventual Vader) killed Dooku, current Sith apprentice - which, unknown to him at first, put him on the path to become the new one. Palpatine then wanted Luke to kill Anakin and become the ''next'' apprentice...

** Also we have the Skywalkers: Anakin (the eventual Vader) killed Dooku, Dooku[[note]]Which itself is an inversion, being a Klingon ''Demotion'' for Dooku as he is killed on Sidious's order to free up his position for Anakin[[/note]], current Sith apprentice - which, unknown to him at first, put him on the path to become the new one. Palpatine then wanted Luke to kill Anakin and become the ''next'' apprentice...

*** Palpatine also inverted it by enacting a Klingon ''Demotion'' against Dooku, ordering Anakin not only to off his Sith apprentice in order to be rid of him (so as to not violate the Rule of Two when it was time to bring Anakin into the fold) but to also push Anakin further to the Dark Side (which means Anakin's act unknowingly leads to a Klingon Promotion for himself).
