* ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' has a meta example. In TheStinger for the very last episode, [[spoiler: Luluco, now going as Miss Trigger, flying past and high fiving [[Anime/LittleWitchAcademia Akko Kagari]], and announcing the ''Little Witch'' anime.]]

* Creator/{{NBC}}'s telecast of ''Theatre/TheWiz'' features Broadway's original Dorothy, Stephanie Mills, as Aunt Em to newcomer Shanice Williams' Dorothy. This torch-passing felt even more poignant with such promotional material as [[https://youtu.be/-JmKpjK6_44 Mills and Williams singing "Home" together]].

* It is in Swedish, but check out [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R10y49DUw5o aging champion singer Mats Paulson duetting his number one song with new megastar Hakan Hellstrom]]. Check out the audience reaction when Hakan enters the scene. Check out when Mats graciously gives Hakan a rose and helps him to pin it to his costume. Check when he lets Hakan take over the solo and enters the background. It's the most perfect example of this trope in RealLife that I have ever seen.

* The whole "Island protector" thing on ''Series/{{Lost}}'' - first Jacob (preceded by his "mother"), then [[spoiler:Jack and Hurley]].
** For extra FridgeBrilliance watch the scene between [[spoiler:Jack and Jacob]] in "What They Died For" and the scene in "Everybody Loves Hugo" which is accompanied by the PassingTheTorch soundtrack piece. And pay attention to who is holding the torches - both scenes take place at night.

Differs from TakeUpMySword in that the hero is still around and may be up to the role of OldMaster. If the hero dies very quickly afterward, it can overlap with TakeUpMySword. However, it usually happens in the beginning or middle of a story; PassingTheTorch is usually an {{Ending Trope|s}}. The only time it can happen at the beginning is if he were the hero in the backstory and in the main story is already the MentorArchetype.

* As a star ages, if it had planets, the habitable zone (an imaginary boundary where liquid water can exist) will gradually move outwards (once every 2 billion years or so), ending life on the planet that was originally inside the habitable zone, but at the same time allows planets further away to support life. When life first began on JustForFun/{{Earth}}, life was no longer possible on UsefulNotes/{{Venus}}. And when life is no longer possible on Earth, life will become a possibility on UsefulNotes/{{Mars}}.
** Furthermore, when the star itself finally dies, its material will eventually be used to make new stars that will take its place. In addition, the material from dead stars is also what makes up the heavier elements of the periodic table and allows complex molecules to form, including the all of the organic chemistry that makes up life.

* In ''Film/GreenLantern'', Hal Jordan becomes the titular hero, after the previous protector of this sector, Abin Sur, hands him the Green Lantern ring and the power battery before expiring. While we aren't shown much about Abin Sur, the other Green Lanterns claim he had a great many accomplishments, including the capture of [[BigBad Parallax]]. In comparison, they view Hal as a PunyEarthlings, who allows fear to guide his actions, a big "no-no" for a Green Lantern.
