** Earlier, this is attempted by Kewell Soresi. After the Orange Incident, he thinks Jeremiah Gottwald is no longer fit to lead the Purebloods, so he [[LuredIntoATrap lures him into a trap]] and tries to assassinate him. Fortunately for Orange Boy, Viletta and Suzaku intervene to save him.

* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'': Jupiter is trying to invoke it; he wants to kill Sun so that he'll get his job as leader of the solar system. Whether or not it'd actually work out that way is irrelevant, since it's pretty clear that the chances of him managing to ''wound'' [[AssKickingEqualsAuthority Sun]], much less kill him, aren't exactly high.

* ''VideoGame/{{Killer7}}'': Minor characters Shinya Akiba and Hiroyasu Kurahashi rose in prominence through this. When nuclear missiles threaten to destroy Japan, they order the new leader of the U.N. Party, Kenjiro Matsuoka, to kill himself while revealing this truth. After continually mocking Matsuoka, they are promptly shot by him, only for [[BigBad Kun Lan]] to appear and revive the two as sentient Heaven Smile/zombie hybrids, while also giving Matsuoka the confidence he needs to be a great leader.
