* AAA used this to get the Reina De Reinas off of perennial holder Taya Valkyrie by announcing a title defense at a show she hadn't been scheduled to appear on and then stripping her of the title for no showing. However, the actual angle used for her no longer being champion was an illegal choke hold used on Ayako Hamada, in a no disqualification match(in other words a VoodooShark because even if it was deemed an illegitimate title change the belt should have defaulted to Hamada, who wasn't even part of the decision to decide the next title holder)

** The cartoon "The Luau" has Strong Bad throwing a marshmallow roast at the same time as Marzipan's luau. The invitations even say "Same time as Marzipan's stupid Luau". Even then, people's attendance had more to do with the fact that they expected Marzipan's to suck (since she's a known Granola girl and willing associate of [[TheEeyore terminally gloomy bore]] Strong Sad) than they expected Strong Bad's to be particularly jumpin'.

Of course everyone at school goes to the Alpha Bitch's party, tempted by expensive freebies or a famous band she's somehow managed to wrangle. Leaving our heroine and her few closest, strongest friends, sitting in alone with her parents; surrounded by unused party stuff and miserable. However, something happens at the Alpha Bitch's party, perhaps the party goers don't actually have fun, maybe the police show up and close it down for being too noisy or her parents close it down and ground her for trashing their house.

Everyone heads over to the Cool Loser's house, and end up having a much more fun party. The trope doesn't always follow this format; variations do show up - maybe it is the Cool Loser who schedules a party against the Alpha Bitch's when the Cool Loser isn't invited, for example. It also isn't an exclusively teen trope; versions with adults have been seen, but it shows up a lot in shows [[TVTeen aimed at tweens that feature teens]].

* Cosplayers, ever gone to a convention, looked up the times for gatherings, only to discover that one of your fandoms' gatherings is at the exact same timeslot as another one of your fandoms' gatherings? Or worse, discover that [[OvershadowedByAwesome one gathering you're attending has a much smaller projected turnout than another, much more anticipated gathering scheduled at the same time]]? Usually this is not on purpose, as at conventions, official gatherings are typically scheduled by staff who may not be aware that two concurrent gatherings' respective series [[FriendlyFandoms have a lot of mutual fans]], with the organizer usually having limited or no say in what time they get to have their gathering at (major conventions usually have several dozen gatherings, and depending on how many designated areas for gatherings there are and how long the convention is, alternate timeslots may not be an option).

* A variation happens in ''{{Jem}}'' - where Eric Raymond and The Misfits film and premiere a a big-budget movie solely to upstage Jem's indy effort. The Misfit's movie is a dog and the premiere crowd moves en masse to the lower key theater holding Jem's premiere. (A later episode has Jem/Jerrica nominated for an Oscar for her effort.)

* Perros Del Mal Produccioness was supposed to be a type of {{spinoff}} promotion from Wrestling/{{CMLL}} in 2007 to further an angle centered around the titular Perros Del Mal PowerStable and shine a spotlight on independent circuit luchadors. Something went wrong, however, leading to Perro Aguayo Jr to break from CMLL completely in 2008 and CMLL to retaliate with counter shows running directly alongside PDM's to undermine the new promotion's launch. CMLL did relent however as PDM struck up a deal with Wrestling/{{AAA}} and CMLL got to do [[SpiritualSuccessor a close enough angle]] when disenfranchised AAA luchadors [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere departed to the independent circuit in mass]] during 2009.
