* ''Series/Daredevil2015'':
** Wilson Fisk cements his position as an organized crime boss in Hell's Kitchen by engaging in bid-rigging on government reconstruction contracts in light of [[Film/TheAvengers2012 the Incident]]. The other bosses have also profited off the alien invasion. To quote Leland Owlsley, "Heroes and their consequences are why we have our current opportunities."
** In "Condemned", Matt Murdock is holed up with Vladimir in an abandoned building, and overpowers a police officer who stumbles upon them, but not before the officer is able to call for help. Ben Urich, who'd just published a piece on Fisk's corruption at Union Allied, is among the reporters at the scene. Wesley warns Fisk that if Urich gets suspicious, they might have a problem. Fisk replies, "Problems are just opportunities that haven't presented themselves."
* It's implied in ''Series/LukeCage2016'' that Councilwoman Mariah Dillard embezzled Chitauri invasion reconstruction grants money to fund the renovation of her cousin Cottonmouth's club.

* Tony Blair's Labour administration in the UK was infamously busted for an email that was allegedly sent on September, 2001 to various departments, encouraging them to get any press releases they didn't want to be front page news out and that the 9/11 terrorist outrage was the perfect opportunity to "bury bad news". It backfired spectacularly when this email came to light, and "bury bad news" became a popular turn of phrase for a while in the UK for the act of using some big news event to hide some other news you don't want to be so big.

* In TheFlash2014, the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells is a particularly blatant example considering that he ''caused'' said crisis. After an experiment of his accidentally unleashes a bunch of villainous metahumans on his earth, he decides he might as well make some money off of it and starts selling anti-metahuman technology to scared civilians. This ''enrages'' his earth's Flash, but Wells just [[NeverMyFault denies responsibility]] when that Flash attempts to call him out on it. [[spoiler: When one of the metahumans [[ItsAllAboutMe kidnaps his daughter]], he finally gets serious about helping to stop them.]]

* Creator/MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/StateOfFear'' is about an attempt by [[AnimalWrongsGroup ecoterrorists]] to ''[[YouCanPanicNow engineer]]'' a "crisis" for the purposes of this - and Crichton's opinion is that environmentalism ''in and of itself'' is no different.

* According to both myth and historical record, Cao Cao - the King of Wei most known for his starring role in the ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'' - was assessed by a renowned sage, who was famous for always being able to tell someone's true potential. He stated that Cao Cao would be 'A decent administrator in peaceful times, or a blood-stained hero in chaotic times.' A few years later, the long period of civil war known as the Three Kingdoms Period got started, and Cao Cao lived up the prediction by turning the crisis into his opportunity - eventually outmaneuvering both Wu and Shu, and seizing control of all China with the formation of a new Dynasty (it didn't last more than three generations before his trusted strategist, Sima Yi, pulled an EvilChancellor and seized power for himself - but by then, Cao Cao was several years in the grave, so you can hardly blame him for that).
