* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' had Team Aqua/Magma in the 3rd games, and Galactic in the 4th. Both wanted to capture and control the version specific Legendary, the former two to expand the size of the ocean/land the latter because their leader wanted to [[AGodAmI become a god]]. Not technically true in Emerald or Platinum, where the evil teams succeed in their plots and the version mascot shows up to save the day. All three groups are stand-ins for the 1st game's Team Rocket, which wanted to capture any and all rare and/or powerful Pokemon, and in the anime ''created'' their own Legendary, Mewtwo, in order to rule the world.

** Lampshaded in ''[[{{BioShockInfinite/BurialAtSea}} BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea]]'', along with all the other similarities in the SharedUniverse. Booker doesn't peg Elizabeth for the type to apply for Rapture citzenship; not capitalist enough. Elizabeth drolly answers that she's seen enough personality cults... ("Just another set of fanatics with another set of books.")

** Lampshaded by Booker in [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite]]. When he is comparing local dictator Comstock and Comstock's arch rival Fitzroy: "...when it comes down to it, the only difference between Comstock and Fitzroy is how you spell the name".

* In ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', Megatron is replaced by Galvatron [[note]]unlike most continuities, Megatron and Galvatron are two completely separate, unrelated individuals in IDW's comic books[[/note]] as leader of the Decepticons following the former's [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]. The big difference is that the Decepticons don't feel as loyal to him.

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': After Rick C-137 (the show's main Rick) overthrows the corrupt and dictatorial Council of Ricks in "The Rickshank Redemption", the Citadel of Ricks decides their new leader will be a democratically elected president. Unfortunately for them, they are manipulated into electing [[spoiler:Candidate Morty]] for the position, who turns out to be [[spoiler:Evil Morty from Season 1]], who immediately begins enacting reforms by [[spoiler:murdering nearly the entire [[TheIlluminati Shadow Council of Ricks]] who secretly ruled the Citadel behind the scenes, then [[ThrownOutTheAirlock ejecting their bodies into space]] along with those of his other enemies (including at least one who was alive when he was ejected), all while sinisterly promising to "take action" that is unlikely to be in the benefit of the other Ricks and Mortys in the long run.]]

* In ''{{Comicbook/Tintin}}'', it's made clear that when Alcazar takes over San Theodoros from Tapioca, nothing really changes. They just alter sings that read "Viva Tapioca" to "Viva Alcazar" and change the soldiers' uniforms slightly.

* In ''VideoGame/BioShock1'', [[spoiler: when Jack kills Andrew Ryan, Frank Fontaine takes over Ryan Industries.]] And in ''VideoGame/BioShock2'', Sofia Lamb ends up being NotSoDifferent from Ryan despite them having polar opposite ideologies: Ryan doesn't care about his underlings individually because "look out for number one" is his motto, while Lamb takes the "collective good" so far that to her, one person's life is meaningless.

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'': Corvo spends 3/4ths of the game taking down the Lord Regent, who has turned the once-great city Dunwall into a spiraling heap of rats and zombies. The remaining 1/4th is taking down the very resistance who fought him, having snapped from the realization that their nefarious acts for the greater good have gone too far to be forgiven, and positioned themselves as the new rulers.

* ''ComicBook/{{Persepolis}}'' depicts life in Iran under the rule of [[MoralGuardians Islamic theocracy]] as this. The Iranian revolution brings about the downfall of the American-appointed Shah, seen as a tool of western oppression with 3,000 political prisoners, but replaces him with the fundamentalists, a tool of ''national'' oppression with 300,000 political prisoners.
