* ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' led to no less than four Supermen standing up to replace or impersonate him. Three were [[AntiHeroSubstitute Anti Hero Substitutes]]; the fourth was as much of a [[TheCape Cape]] as the original (if not [[UpToEleven more so]]), and was regarded as a legitimate successor to Superman even after the original returned.

* In [[BookOfTheNewSun The Book of the New Sun]], in book IV the dying Autarch passes his throne [[spoiler: and his memories]] to Severian. It ''shouldn't'' be a surprise since we were told it would happen at the start of book I, and the Autarch has known all along who his successor would be, but given the amount of obfuscation involved..

%%* The BlueBeetle.

%%* * The BlueBeetle.ComicBook/BlueBeetle legacy has been kinda like this. Dan Garret was friends with Ted Kord when Ted took over the role from Dan when he was killed. Though Jaime Reyes didn't know Ted, being around other heroes (and getting the Scarab stuck in him) lead to him to really take over the role.

[[spoiler:One week after she and Samaritan are destroyed by the ICE-9 virus, a backup copy of her core code comes online, but without any of her memories. To fix this, The Machine records a message right as she dies that her memory-free code eventually listens to, explaining her purpose, the nature of her work, and the moral code she lived by. This is enough for the backup code to resume its mission.]]
