** Briefly attempted by ''Bane'', of all people, when Batman disappears during ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil''. Gotham is in chaos, with Arkham's inmates released, and Bane knows this is the perfect time to conquer the city. He runs into a bit of trouble with the Arkham crew though, and realizes that to succeed he needs to become something that truly terrifies them- so he makes his own Bat-costume and declares himself the new Batman. Note that he has no real intention of being a hero or living up to Batman's ideals; he just needs the fear. Needless to say, his stint ends [[ShaggyDogStory in the space of a couple pages]] once ''Forever Evil'' is resolved and the real Batman can return to Gotham.

* This happened once in {{Bionicle}}, specifically in the third DirectToVideo movie, ''Bionicle 3: Web of Shadows'', when [[FailureKnight Vakama]], the leader of [[TrueCompanions the Toa Metru]], and TheHero of the previous film, performs a FaceHeelTurn about half way through the movie. [[PluckyComicRelief Matau]] steps into the role of TheHero, and wages a successful IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight with Vakama, after which he becomes co-{{Lancer}} with [[TheHeart Nokama]].

* In the ''ComicBook/DarkwingDuck'' comic series, one story line features many Darkwings from alternate universes. One of them had taken up Gosalyn's Quiverwing Quack superhero identity after she was killed performing a HeroicSacrifice in his universe, and [[ILetGwenStacyDie there was nothing he could do to save her]]. Interestingly, the comic has him fight Darkwarrior Duck, the BadFuture version of Darkwing from an episode of the TV show, who thought that ''his'' Gosalyn had run away from home, and had a ''[[KnightTemplar very]]'' [[AllCrimesAreEqual different]] reaction to losing her. [[spoiler:Quiverwing [[CurbStompBattle completely wrecks his ass]].]]
