* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Stan makes Roger, who to this point has been impersonating a foreign dictator, undergo a fake assassination as the treaty he signed makes said dictator no longer useful to the US (and, thanks to Stan, the real dictator was already dead). However, tired of being used by Stan, Roger immediately subverts it by getting right back up after his "assassination" in full view of everyone, after which he takes over the country proper.
