* This may have happened in the [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]] when [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]] gradually took over Wrestling/TheNationOfDomination from Farooq.
* Wade Barrett basically said this verbatim after CMPunk took over TheNexus. The other Nexus members disagreed.

* Gaea Worshipper's guild from ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' plays with this. The guild got created as an InstantFanClub of sorts for Gaea, a player of another faction that the guild members have mistaken for a DoubleAgent actaully faithful to their own faction. Gaea, being a ManipulativeBastard, decides [[SureLetsGoWithThatto go along with this]] and lets the guild's members to do stuff for her. The trope gets closer to being played straight when [[spoiler:Gaea gets tired of her current guild, decides to change factions, is made leader of Gaea Worshipper's guild, leaves it, but the guild's status as an InstantFanClub holds despite this. We get to see the guy who took over in the novel version of the story and he considers himself to be a substitute leader while expecting Gaea to come back sooner or later]].

Added DiffLines:


* Patrice de MacMahon, the first president of the French Third Republic was an ardent monarchist who disliked the idea of republicanism. This led to a constitutional crisis in 1877 when he dismissed the Parliament, only to have the republicans win an overwhelming victory. Since the French constitution provided for a powerful president, there was a great deal of confusion as to who had the power to do what. Leon Gambetta, the parliamentary leader of the incoming republican factions, demanded that MacMahon should submit (to parliamentary power) or resign. Supposedly, MacMahon replied "J'y suis. J'y reste !" (I'm here. I'm staying here.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheWalkingDead'': Deanna falls in to this in season 5. She's still the official leader of Alexandria and Rick is at least nominally subordinate to her, but he's far more assertive and focused on taking out the various threats to the community. After [[spoiler: losing her husband and one of her sons]] Deanna falls into a depression and starts [[YesMan deferring to him on everything]], which causes controversy among the other residents who distrust Rick. Eventually she admits to Rick that he's the leader Alexandria needs, and [[spoiler: he's cemented as such when she's killed in "Start to Finish"]].

* In ''NoMoreDeadDogs'', a football player essentially becomes the director of the school play in a coup de etat, though the actual teacher directing occasionally tries to remind the students that he's supposed to be in charge.

* Inverted in Judd Winick's run on ''[[BatmanAndTheOutsiders The Outsiders]]''. Jade takes over leadership duty from the frequently bickering Arsenal and Nightwing... except everyone still listens to Nightwing in the field and the team almost universally follows his suggestions instead of Jade's. It's not until Nightwing leaves the team that Jade takes over, and even then it [[InfiniteCrisis doesn't last long.]]

* In one episode of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', a group is stranded on a planet under the command of a young, incompetent lieutenant. Chief Tyrol, being much more experienced, constantly gives advice. The lieutenant resents this, worrying that he's losing control of the group. Naturally, every time he ignores Tyrol's advice, it goes badly.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', Jack briskly starts giving orders about how to surround and overcome their enemy, causing The Doctor to ask who's supposed to be in charge again? Jack apologises, and the Doctor says -- "[[WhatHeSaid Like he said.]] Nice plan!" Seems like the Doctor doesn't enjoy having a taste of his own medicine, since he invariably takes ccommand away from the actual leaders pretty much as soon as he walks into a room.
