** 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....

* There's one issue of the Creator/MarvelComics series ''What The...?!'' where Santa ends up triggering one of SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom's traps and, injured, begs Doom to finish Christmas for him while he recovers in exchange for his heart's desire. In a heartwarming moment, an accidental battle between Doom, ComicBook/TheAvengers, ComicBook/FantasticFour and Speedball ends up bringing them to a hospital for sickly children, where the gathered characters act in the spirit of giving and help the children. [[spoiler:Doom doesn't get his heart's desire because those children loving him unconditionally was that desire, as he's seen at the end, cuddling the teddy of the girl who spotted them.]]

[[caption-width-right:350:"Either you kill [[Series/PartyOfFive them]] or I kill you."]]

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.
