** Lisa Simpson was President of the US at the age of 38 in a glimpse of the future ([[HilariousInHindsight having succeeded]] Creator/DonaldTrump). She is a genius, but that is still five years younger than Kennedy, the youngest person ever elected President, and he was a war hero. Lisa was an unmarried, vegetarian Buddhist. She must have had one heck of a campaign manager. This is then played with as it turns out that though ''she'' is extremely competent, her presidency may be seen as a failure because the policies of her predecessor were so disastrous. It is implied that she does manage to fix things, one incident thanks to help from Bart.

* Nathan Petrelli of ''{{Series/Heroes}}'' will make it from newly elected Congressman to President in less than five years. Even given the example of the [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama current holder of the office]] that rapid a rise seems a little bit of a stretch, no matter how many (pot) pies Linderman has his fingers in. But perhaps not so much of a stretch as:

* A season 7 episode of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' features flash forwards within several flashbacks. Ted and Marshall formed a pact during their college days that they will watch the original Star Wars trilogy every three years while envisioning how their lives will be in three years. Barney eventually joined the pact a few years before the series starts. Ted imagines himself being a successful architect who had designed multiple skyscrapers and is married to a woman who resembles Robin, has a name starting with R, and is from another country. Marshall imagines himself with a mustache, married to Lily, and a successful lawyer with a family of five children. Barney's is always the same, being with another woman before pushing her out of the apartment. And in each of their imaginations, Ted and Marshall somehow developed a thick British accent.

* ''WesternAnimation/Duckman'' had an episode similar to the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode above known as "The Once and Future Duck" where Duckman meets his future self who is extremely successful. Unfortunately, he also discovers that the slightest change can radically alter his future and keeps finding new versions of himself with each action he takes.

** Maggie Simpson in "Holidays of Future Past" becomes an ultra-successful rock star, with one poster talking about her as "the voice of her generation".



* This can happen to bad guys, too. In the ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' episode "The Ultimate Enemy", we learn that--at the age of about twenty-four--Danny is now an evil half-Vlad, half-Danny mutant who has taken over Amity Park and rules it with an iron fist. And by "rules," of course, we mean "punches."
** Hell, as the movie starts, it's heavily implied that Amity Park is the only place he ''hasn't'' taken over. Managing ''that'' is merely his EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* Similarly, in "A Sitch in Time", ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' villain Shego has taken over the entire world at the ripe young age of about thirty-five or forty ([[VagueAge possibly]]). It helped that [[TimeTravelForFunAndProfit she used time travel to amass a fortune and break up Team Possible]].
