* ''TheOnion News Network'' features Tucker Hope, which is actually a position on the news crew filled by various men who go through Tucker training in order to fill their role. One Tucker Hope was even fired on the air after having a breakdown and declaring that his name was Peter. When the episode came back from the commercial break, a new Tucker Hope was already present.

* TNA and WWE tried to pass Wrestling/AJStyles and Wrestling/TheMiz off as successors to Ric Flair's legacy, with limited success, especially in the latter case. Styles at least got a popular Four Horsemen type group called Fourtune...later Wrestling/{{Fortune}}.

** There is a new and not-very-different Link in nearly every game, with the same green tunic, Master Sword (or some other sword with potent magical properties), various other mainstay items, and left-handedness (except in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', the Wii and Wii U versions of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]''). This was explicitly referenced in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', where the Links are fully aware that they are taking up the mantle of the previous hero, and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' references it in one of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Snake's]] codec conversations. A few sources, including VideoGame/HyruleWarriors, state that the Links are reincarnations of the original Link from ''Skyward Sword''.

A few sources, including VideoGame/HyruleWarriors, imply that the Links are reincarnations of one hero.
*** The book ''Hyrule Historia'' makes note that only some of the Links are related to each other, but brings up the possibility that a number of them carry the blood of the Hylian Knights. It also notes that "Link" is just a name that the storytellers of 'the legends of Zelda' give to the hero after the fact regardless of their real name, probably as a reference to the fact that while Link is his CanonName you can [[HelloInsertNameHere name the hero in each game]]. Even games which note that the new Link has the same [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman legacy clothes,]] [[AncestralWeapon legacy weapons,]] and [[HeroicSpirit legacy soul]] as his predecessor never mention whether he has the same name as the previous hero, or what that hero's given name was, only that he was the Hero of Time, Winds, Men, etc.

* Aquaman also had a replacement when he became the Dweller in the Depths. This proved to only be temporary, and the replacement Aquaman underwent ChuckCunninghamSyndrome. Then have also been two Aquagirls (not counting a pair of one-shot characters that took the name for a single issue). The first Aquagirl, Tula, was revived in the New 52, but does not use the name Aquagirl, nor is she a superheroine (she's [[BashBrothers Bash Sisters]] with Mera).

*** This trope is played with in the beginning of ''ComicBook/GothamCentral'', dealing with the actions of [[PyroManiac Firebug]], an arsonist villain who has just returned to Gotham after a long absence. The Gotham City Police Department eventually managed to rack down Joseph Rigger and arrested him after him tried to escape out the window, only for him to reveal that he sold the suit two years ago after it almost killed him. The real culprit is deduced and arrested, and it turns out to be an upper-class twit who bought the suit and runs around burning down banks for the adrenaline rush.
