* This happening is the plot of the season 3 finale of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' "Magical Mystery Cure". Twilight performs an unfinished spell that switches the cutie marks of her five friends, which leads to them struggling to fill new roles for which they're totally unsuited (like fun-loving Pinkie Pie trying to be a serious, hard-working farmer like Applejack, only to make a complete mess of Sweet Apple Acres, or ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy trying, and failing, to make ponies laugh like Pinkie does).
** It happens in "Magic Duel" as well. Thanks to an ArtifactOfDoom Trixie becomes worlds more powerful than Twilight and effectively [[CurbStompBattle smears her all over Ponyville in a magical duel]] before exiling her. Twilight goes on some TrainingFromHell [[spoiler:but realizes she's simply not powerful enough, so instead relies on stage magic, deception, and trickery - Trixie's own methods - to win in a rematch.]]

* ''ComicBook/WolverineAndTheXMen''/''ComicBook/UncannyXMen2011'': After ''Schism'' Wolverine and Cyclops swapped their roles, with Cyclops taking the role of the brooding, pragmatic AntiHero and Wolverine trying to fill in for Professor X. At least that was the intention, many people found themselves still rooting for Cyclops due to Wolverine acting like a huge, condescending {{Hypocrite}} most of the time.
