* 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.

* Example straight from [[http://www.advocate.com/News/Daily_News/2010/04/05/ACLU_Investigating_Fake_Prom/ Fulton, Mississippi,]] with one slight variation: It's the parents who planned it to ostracize seven kids and deny them their Prom.

* Enforced by Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]], who scheduled the first ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries'' [=PPV=] on Thanksgiving Night 1987, the same night that [[Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance the NWA]] was airing their first [=PPV=] ''Starrcade,'' and told the PPV companies of the time to choose between ''Survivor Series'' and ''Starrcade'', and further told them that if they aired ''Starrcade'', they would not get to air ''WrestleMania'' that spring. Most chose ''Survivor Series.'' [=McMahon=] did the same thing again by airing the ''Wrestling/RoyalRumble'' for free on the Creator/USANetwork against NWA's ''Bunkhouse Stampede''. Jim Crockett Promotions would retaliate by airing the first ''Clash of the Champions'' on Creator/{{TBS}} against ''Wrestling/WrestleMania IV''. Eventually, the pay-per-view companies asked them to stop scheduling shows opposite each other.
