* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'': Several of the Mages' Guild Hall leaders are implied to have been assigned as such so that they aren't around the Arcane University. Of particular note is Jeanne Frasoric, the young leader of the Bruma Mages' Guild who is outright called incompetent by her colleagues, and is even noted by [[TheArchmage Traven himself]] to be very annoying. Made even funnier by the fact that Bruma is actually situated in the coldest region of Cyrodiil.

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]] * Major Klaus Heinz von dem Eberbach in ''FromEroicaWithLove'' likes to threaten his men with a transfer to Alaska should they fail in their job. He follows through on this threat at least once. (But they are eventually forgiven and come back, not to mention that they had it quite easy in Alaska - so maybe it's a subversion?) ** It would be, but for the facts that a) the only reason they were forgiven was that personnel wouldn't give Klaus 25 new men, and b) they hated it there.

* Chor Tempest in ''{{Simoun}}'' gets assigned to ''Messis'', a mediocre border patrol AirborneAircraftCarrier, after failing to properly protect their previous base of operations, ''Arcus Prima''. * The titular teacher in ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' is relocated far north in one episode. For some reason his students are already waiting at the new school. * In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, Giovanni repeatedly threatens to reassign the Team Rocket trio to Antarctica. At the beginning of ''Battle Frontier'' he ''does''. The only reason they're still following Ash is because Giovanni has long since stopped caring about them. ** [[spoiler:Until the final episode of ''Sinnoh League Victors'', when he decides that he has a use for them and reassigns them to Unova.

In the final story arc, Ford Romfellow[[note]]from the game ''Encounters in Space''[[/note]] and Agar[[note]]from ''Zeonic Front''[[/note]] defy their [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Titans]] superiors to help stop a plot by Zeon die-hards that would have resulted in the destruction of the Zeon home colony, Zuum. In punishment, they're demoted to Ensigns and shipped off to the ass-end of the world; Ford has an "[[Creator/LaurelAndHardy another fine mess you've gotten me into]]" attitde, but Agar is surprisingly upbeat -- either because he knows they did the right thing, or because their company includes the cute BridgeBunnies Noel Anderson[[note]]from ''Lost War Chronicles''[[/note]] and Miyu Takizawa[[note]]Ford's old teammate, who takes every opportunity to razz him[[/note]].

* The main characters in ''SoraNoWoto'' appear to have been assigned to an area with very little going on around them, although no real reason is given as to why they were assigned there. * Happens to Anabuki Tomoko in ''StrikeWitches''. For some reason, TheAce and the star of the propaganda movie is transferred to the middle of nowhere in Suomus and then having to raise a squadron out of some misfits. Naturally, she's pissed off.

This is a slight inversion of the trope, however, because the rainbowfaces actually wanted to be stationed on Earth.

* In ''VisualNovel/RisingAngels'', Natalie starts the game having just returned from a long solitary posting to a listening post in a swamp. She didn't like it at all, and is very glad to be back doing "real" work on a refreshingly solid, metallic ship. She considers it an injustice that she got sent there when "inferior" classmates got better assignments (and often failed at them). It's not stated, but it's not impossible that she got sent there for just such an attitude.
