* A [[HolidayMode continued theme]] each [[ChristmasEpisode Christmas]] in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' is how the [[EvilTwin AlterServants]] dons the role of Santa Claus and HilarityEnsues. Though there are lessons hidden in the humor. These Alters even have a new Class out of it.

In your world, SantaClaus, TheGrimReaper, the Tooth Fairy, or any popular mythical figure actually exists, but something happens which causes them not to be able to actually do their magical duty. Perhaps they fall [[WesternAnimation/TheYearWithoutASantaClaus sick]], possibly they've been [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas kidnapped]], maybe they've [[Film/TheSantaClause died in an accident]] or perhaps the legend wishes to teach someone a [[GodForADay lesson in humility]]. Maybe it's a case of SomeoneHasToDoIt and there is only one who can step in when DeathTakesAHoliday. Who'll step in? You, of course! SubbingForSanta is when the protagonist of a story takes [[GodJob the mantle of a mythical being and takes over their job]], even if it's just temporary.

* The ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'' Christmas special "Twas the Night Before Bumpy" features a rare example of this being done accidentally. Mr. Bumpy steals Santa's bag of presents purely for his own personal gain (he later learns the importance of giving), but during his escape from the North Pole's elves, he ends up accidentally dropping the presents down everyone's chimneys. He even put on a Santa hat before he left.

* Like the above movie, ''Film/{{Toothless}}'' has Kirstie Alley's character take up the mantle of ToothFairy when she goes to Limbo. Other beings you have to become in Limbo include SantaClaus, EasterBunny, Cupid, Literature/{{Cinderella}}, a {{Boogeyman}}, and Literature/SleepingBeauty.

** The Grim Reaper being a job in TGAOBAM, other people can take that job. In the Movie, Grim is fired, and is replaced by [[WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor Numbuh Three]], before he gets his job back.

* ''Anime/PrettyCure''
** ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5GoGo'' Apparently, Santa Claus fell off and lost his sleigh, so now the Pretty Cures task themselves to hand out everyone's presents.
** In the world of ''Anime/MahoGirlsPrecure'' many adult magicians take turns being Santa. When the one to do it this year, Issac, hurts his back, guess which three girls decide to take his place....
