*** Trebonius Artorius, the incompetent Archmage of the Mages Guild in Vvardenfell, is said to have gotten that title as a combination of this trope and KickedUpstairs. He is indeed a powerful [[MagicKnight Battlemage]], which helped him to rise in the ranks initially, but his mainland superiors got tired of his incompetence in managing Guild affairs, so they made him the Archmage in the most backwater district in the Empire to get him out of their hair. He now spends his time letting in [[TheMole badly disguised spies]], giving his underlings (who view him as a PointyHairedBoss) {{Impossible Task}}s, and just generally being petty and immature to those who offend him. If you want his title, you'll need to [[ChallengingTheChief beat him in]] a [[KlingonPromotion duel to the death]]. Need we remind you that he ''is'' indeed a powerful Battlemage, his flaws aside?

[[spoiler: There ''is'' a peaceful path to becoming Arch-Mage of Vvardenfell, but it is a bit ambiguous if it leaves you joint Guild Masters or just lets him keep the ''title'' of Arch-Mage as an honorary one.]] Need we remind you that he ''is'' indeed a powerful Battlemage, his flaws aside?

* In the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' fanfic 'Mistress Ciel' by Archaon, Ciel goes back in time via MentalTimeTravel to make things better. One of the first things she does? Send Elpizo to a post in Antarctica. Better than killing him, though, right?

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'':
** In "The Reconstruction" we learn that at some point after "The Blood Gulch Chronicles", Church was reassigned to watch over an empty base. He loved it, as there was no one to bother him. [[spoiler: It later transpires that his assignment to Blood Gulch was one of these as well; As the Alpha AI, Project Freelancer needed a place to safely hide him from the Meta.]]
** In "The Revelation" that [[spoiler: everyone in the Red and Blue armies are this; the two sides consist of the [=UNSC=]'s worst soldiers, who are used as training dummies for battle simulations, all while thinking they are fighting a real war.]]
** In Season 14, Agents Idaho, Iowa, and Ohio, the worst of Project Freelancer, were basically abandoned on a frozen planet. There, they meet a trio of Charon Industries troops who are in the same boat.

* ''SuikodenIII'': It's made clear to [[NonActionGuy Thomas]] that the Zexen Confederacy has sent him to oversee the struggling Budehuc Castle just to get him out of the way. In his case, the only thing he's really done to warrant this treatment is ''exist'', given that [[spoiler:he's the [[HeroicBastard illegitimate son]] of a Zexen council member]].

*** In ''Bloodmoon'', most or all of the soldiers stationed at Fort Frostmoth are there because of punishment. It's a freezing island filled with werewolves, naked barbarians, tree-women, and undead warriors.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'': It's not like [[HellholePrison Titania]] offered much opportunity for career advancement to begin with, but after failing to stop Velvet escaping at the start of the game, Oscar Dragonia isn't heard from for over half the game - talking to certain NPCs reveals he'd been disciplined by being assigned milk runs in the boonies. When you do see him again, he's being handed a dead-quiet governor position on a far-fling island chain (allegedly) better known as a honeymoon destination than for strategic importance. When the player party screw that up for him, he gets reassigned to a barely-inhabited marshy shithole in the middle of nowhere, armed with a prototype device that he's more or less told will kill him when activated.

* Detective Adachi of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' was reassigned to Yasoinaba after an unspecified incident. By his account it was a minor slip-up, [[spoiler:though considering his actions in-game one can assume that the actual reason was much more serious.]] His social link in the UpdatedRerelease reveals more: [[spoiler:it was something minor, or rather, a lot of minor things. Apparently he's always had the motivation issues he demonstrate in Inaba, including slacking on his paperwork and not treating his superiors with due respect. RealityEnsues as acting like TheMillstone to a busy metropolitan is a fantastic way to get reassigned to the boonies without anyone going to the trouble of firing you.]]
