* ''VideoGame/{{Growlanser}} II'' includes several returning characters from ''{{Growlanser}} I''. Many of them, including the first game's hero, end up OverratedAndUnderleveled, serving under the command of the new main character - who just recently graduated from the military academy. The game even {{lampshade}}s this in the script, in a brief scene where the ''{{Growlanser}} I'' hero reassures the ''VideoGame/{{Growlanser}} II'' hero that he'll do fine despite his relative inexperience.

The Quickly Demoted Leader is established as a powerful character, but then immediately made to serve under the hero. This happens to provide the hero with the companionship of someone with much more experience and might put him in a position of authority quickly. If too GenreSavvy of their position, the QuicklyDemotedLeader can easily become TheResenter.

* Kiritsugu Emiya in the ''Fate'' series. Played with in that the prequel ''LightNovel/FateZero'' has him as the protagonist and actually shows us how he became the QuicklyDemotedLeader: [[spoiler:failing to fulfill his wish, failing to destroy the Grail, and being cursed to lose his powers and die after mentoring [[TheHero Shirou]] for five years.]]

* In ''Literature/TheCurseOfChalion'', [[TheHero Cazaril]] is given desperate warnings by the [[MadOracle famously insane]] Royina Ista fairly early in the story, which he doesn't really believe. Half a book later, after he's [[SkepticNoLonger absolutely ready to take the supernatural seriously]], he goes back to her for an explanation... [[spoiler: and discovers that, in accordance with the trope, she was TheHero of the last generation and stood exactly where he's standing before she fell prey to her [[DrivenByEnvy personal weaknesses]]. She can, however, give him the key information and support that lets him save the day.]]

* Titania of ''FireEmblem Path of Radiance'' is first Ike's mentor and boss, and after his father [[MentorOccupationalHazard dies]], she becomes Ike's subordinate. Unlike many examples of this trope, Ike's youth and inexperience is actually a source of conflict and some of the mercenaries quit over it (Ike ''himself'' thinks this is too sudden). Titania and those that remain do so by choice. Titania also doesn't get demoted - she still has her "second-in-command" position, she just changed bosses.
* ''{{Growlanser}} II'' includes several returning characters from ''{{Growlanser}} I''. Many of them, including the first game's hero, end up OverratedAndUnderleveled, serving under the command of the new main character - who just recently graduated from the military academy. The game even {{lampshade}}s this in the script, in a brief scene where the ''{{Growlanser}} I'' hero reassures the ''{{Growlanser}} II'' hero that he'll do fine despite his relative inexperience.
* A variant occurs with ''{{Lifesigns}}''; Suzu-sensei probably ''should'' have been fired. She's an alcoholic with some serious mental instability who puts her obsession with her [[spoiler:boss and]] unrequited love above her responsibilities as a surgeon, placing her squarely under the "too emotional" category. Who picks up the pieces of her FreakOut and proves to be a better doctor in the process? The hero, Tendo. Afterwards [[spoiler: it's hinted that Suzu quits, although this isn't entirely clear.]]

* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' heavily plays with it: when Sailor V finally appears Sailor Moon hands the leadership of the Sailor Senshi to her, as she's the [[ChosenOne Moon Princess]] (or, in the first anime, simply the most experienced)-except Sailor V''enus'' was actually a decoy (and, in all versions except the old anime, a BodyDouble) for Sailor Moon so she could gain the experience to come into her destiny, and showed up and took over when she did because the Dark Kingdom had stepped up their game to a point she couldn't stay on the sidelines anymore. She ''still'' remains the leader of the Sailor Guardians, but [[TheLancer also recognizes that Sailor Moon outranks her]].

** Sky of ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' was easily at the top of the police academy - the problem is that he knew it, and failed a test of character due to arrogance with a dash of sexism. His superior officer made him Blue Ranger to learn some humility, while the Red morpher went to Jack, a thief drafted into the Ranger program as a kind of community service sentence. [[TheResenter He was even less happy than Taylor was.]]
