* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'' brings his friends to the North Pole and zaps Santa with his invention, scrambling his atoms. After being told Christmas has to be called off, Jimmy (who doesn't believe in Santa) offers to deliver all the toys with his rocket, claiming that if a mere mortal can succeed in delivering all the toys in one night, it's proof that Santa doesn't exist. He fails before he can get to Retroville, and Santa, who has gotten better, steps in at the last moment to finish the job.

\n* The ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces2017'' episode "Dashing Thru the Snow" had Santa Claus put out of commission, forcing Peter Perfect, Penelope Pitstop, I.Q. Ickley, the Gruesome Twosome, Dick Dastardly, and Muttley to do his job in delivering presents. They all mess up, but Santa fortunately recovers in time to fix everything.

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! Subbing for Santa 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.

* A standard Easter bit in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'' was characters - not necessarily rabbits - subbing for the Easter Bunny. Rudy and Fiona ended up taking on the role full-time, despite being a wolf and a fox.

* 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.

* 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.
