* ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'': Kitsune is hired to help get rid of a superstitious gang boss by swiping the lucky crab charm that he took from ''his'' superstitious boss who he served as [[TheStarscream second-in-command]] [[spoiler: and ''his'' second-in-command takes from ''him'', noting that he "can already feel its power". Usagi is aghast they basically risked their lives for nothing but Kitsune laughs it off -- after all, they got paid]].

* 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.

* Discussed in ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'' during the "Popsicle Wars" arc, when Aggie and Lisa try to convince Katy Ann to join them in taking on Karen and her clique of bullies:
-->'''Aggie''': This group we're gathering, it's not going to last is to replace Czarina Karen with Dictator Penny.\\
'''Lisa''': It can't be "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss." Wait...technically Penny would be the "old boss"...Pete Townshend, your lyrics are not as relevant to my life as advertized!"

* In ''Film/{{October}}'', Creator/SergeiEisenstein's portrait of the RedOctober revolution, Kerensky and his Provisional Government are explicitly portrayed as playing out this trope. Kerensky is dramatized as a Napoleon wannabe who intends to become emperor.



* In-universe in ''Literature/TheTommyknockers'', when Gardener realizes the Havenites are becoming just like the governmental authority figures he didn't want to show the ship to. He even references the song several times.
* In Sinclair Lewis' ''Literature/ItCantHappenHere'', Buzz Windrip wins the presidential election and quickly turns America into a fascist regime. [[spoiler: Years later, he is forced into exile by Lee Saranson, who is in turn assassinated by Haik. None of the coups produce any noticeable changes in policy or living conditions.]]

* In ''Film/ToKillADragon'' this happens '''twice'':
** Whe the dragon is slain, the [[spoiler: the Burgomaster]] becomes a new ruler also very bad.
** In the end, [[spoiler: Lancelot deposes the Burgomaster and becomes a ruler himself. However,there are hints that he will not really be a better ruler in the long run]].

* ''Franchise/{{Tintin}} and the Picaros'' starts with two armed policemen patrolling the slums of Tapiocapolis, [[{{Egopolis}} the city named after the egomaniacal General Tapioca]]. At the end of the book, General Alcazar has kicked Tapioca out with Tintin's help... and we see the same policeman wearing different uniforms, patrolling the slums of Alcazarpolis. Made even more depressing by the fact that it's the very last panel of the entire series.



* ''Comicbook/{{Persepolis}}'', both the comic and the film adaptation, presents the Iranian revolution as this, with the Shah, a tool of western oppression, superseded by The Fundamentalists, a tool of national oppression.
** A ''New Yorker'' cartoon published around the time of the revolution had a more satirical take on this: "OUT WITH THE DICTATOR! IN WITH THE DICTATOR!"
