* In ''ComicBook/ZombiesChristmasCarol'', thanks to a ZombieApocalypse he himself caused, if Scrooge doesn't shape up, mankind and its Christmases are doomed. The Ghost of Christmas Present laments what ''should'' be happening on the holiday, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is now the Ghost of Christmases That Will Never Come, represented as Scrooge himself.

* Both {{Christmas Episode}}s of the ''[[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBrosSuperShow Super Mario cartoons]]'' did this. In the first one, "Koopa Klaus", Bowser attempts to ruin Christmas with a plan that involves kidnapping and impersonating Santa. (DiC [[RecycledScript recycled this plot]] for Christmas specials spun off from ''InspectorGadget'' and ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''.) In the later one, "The Night Before Cave Christmas", Mario inspires the Christmas spirit to the cave-people in order to get them to be nicer to each other, and then has to save Christmas for them when Bowser decides to [[HowTheCharacterStoleChristmas steal all the toys]].

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DW4zVYUGZk this commercial]] for Energizer batteries, when none of the trees have any presents under them, the Energizer Bunny travels to the North Pole to wake up Santa with his loud drumming so he can deliver the presents, since Santa’s alarm clock is powered by the ever-unreliable Supervolt battery.

* Somewhat subverted in ''AmateurSurgeon: Christmas Edition'' when moronic surgeon Alan Probe ''causes'' the destruction of Xmas when he collides his private jet with Santa's Sleigh, further crashing into the North Pole. Alan goes to save the holiday by fixing his mistakes with, you guessed is, [[BackAlleyDoctor back alley]] [[MeatGrinderSurgery surgery]].

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has done this, to varying extents of actually saving the holiday, with its special Crimbo events. Since 2005 Crimbo has needed saving from, in various years, a workers' strike, a takeover by the Queen of Halloween, assimilation by the Crimborg, radiation-induced mutations, the Penguin Mafia, bland and inoffensive corporate culture, a candy trade embargo, a HumongousMecha, heavily-armed bears, rebellious robots, a turf war between commie reindeer and hippie elves, and Uncle Crimbo's inner demons.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' did this in "Operation: [=NAUGHTY=]", when the Delightful Children from Down the Lane stole Santa's toy-making equipment and framed the [=KND=] for it. Then the whole thing degenerates into a parody/homage of Marvel Comics' "Dark Phoenix Saga", with Numbah Three as Jean Grey, Santa Claus as Professor X and the elves as the rest of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}.

** FridgeBrilliance, if you see the Real Life entry below for how Charles Dickens can be credited with saving Christmas by writing AChristmasCarol. The Ghostbusters had stopped Scrooge from his moral epiphany, throwing off the story that saved Christmas.
