* On ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'', Jake's normal NonHumanSidekick is a dog named Fu. And in one episode, he's replaced by a [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkey]] named Bananas. Bananas acts excessively cool and has many useful skills, thus making Jake and most of the other characters like him. However, in the fight against a MonsterOfTheWeek evil dragon, Bananas [[FaceHeelTurn surrenders and goes over to her side]]. Jake appreciates his more loyal friend Fu once more, and Bananas' only other appearance is when his new dragon mistress reappears in a later episode.

* This also happened when CaptainAmerica was replaced by his AntiHeroSubstitute, the former enemy Superpatriot. The new Cap was shown as a tool of the government first and an uncontrollable violent man later, while good ol' Steve Rogers took a black suit to remain playing hero.

* Dale Stuckey, from ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', was a crime scene unit tech who tried to make a name for himself among the other SVU members, only to get on everybody's nerves, especially Elliot Stabler. Eventually, after botching a trial due to a paperwork error causing crucial evidence to be ruled inadmissible, he goes off the deep end and tries to kill everyone he felt wronged him, including stabbing his coworker and torturing Stabler. He was featured in three episodes total, and is now presumably rotting in prison.

* On ''TheSimpsons'', the ShowWithinAShow Itchy & Scratchy had a dog named Poochie, who was hated by the audience of characters on the show proper, leading to ShooOutTheNewGuy. There was also another character added to the episode who was a parody of Scrappys everywhere: a teenager named Roy who was inexplicably shown to be living with the Simpson family; however, all Roy did was [[LampshadeHanging hang lampshades]] on the concept of a Scrappy.
* In one U.S. Acres segment in ''GarfieldAndFriends'', an overly-charismatic new rooster shows up and proves to be far more likable to the characters (especially the hens) than Roy. Orson starts to doubt him when he proves a little less effective at his job than Roy, but what takes the cake is when the weasel tries to capture the hens... and the rooster runs and hides. By the time Roy rescues the hens, the only character who will even give the TemporaryScrappy rooster the time of day is [[CowardlyLion Cowardly Duck]] Wade... and only because he enjoys having someone more cowardly than himself around.

* This is often done in ''TheBeano'', with the TemporaryScrappy being AlwaysSomeoneBetter for an attribute that defines one of the regular characters.

* ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' had an episode called "Pinky and the Brain... and Larry" in which Pinky and the Brain are joined by a third lab mouse, Larry, who serves no purpose except to be a parody Scrappy and disappear for good at the end of the segment in which he appears.

* When Franchise/{{Batman}} had his back broken in the 90s, his temporary replacement was [[{{Azrael}} Jean-Paul Valley]]. This portrayal of Batman was an AxCrazy DarkerAndEdgier NinetiesAntiHero that sent most fans into a rage. His entire purpose was to show why the ''real'' Batman isn't an AxCrazy vigilante.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': Edward Jellico, who replaces Picard as captain of the Enterprise during the two-part episode "Chain of Command", was ''supposed'' to be one, and certainly was in-universe, making changes, running a tougher ship than Picard did, and generally not getting along with anyone except Data. Fan reaction was more positive, however, as despite his blunt and unpersonable attitude, he proved to be an effective officer who magnificently OutGambitted the Cardassians and rescued Picard in a situation that, if handled wrong, could have easily spiraled into all-out war. Writer Ronald Moore admitted to being surprised by the character's popularity and even considered bringing him back for an alternate timeline episode where Picard never became captain, but it fell through.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Adam Mitchell joins the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler at the end of 'Dalek.' He is promptly ejected from the TARDIS at the end of the next episode, 'The Long Game,' after trying to bring future technology to himself in the past (which is, y'know, really bad, according to the meddlesome, time-travelling alien whose sum total of instructions to you about time travel were "run around and do crazy, stupid stuff."). Russell T. Davies explained in an interview that he "always wanted to do a show with someone who was a rubbish companion."

* Joshua, from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', starts out with the survival skills of a brick, replaces fan-popular Shiki as Neku's partner, and is a complete and utter asshole. Neku has as low of an opinion of Joshua as the player but has to put up with him anyway - of course Joshua doesn't make it easy. (Their first Fusion attack has Neku shout "Follow my lead!"... to which Joshua answers ''"Screw that!"''). As the week goes on, however, it becomes clear that Joshua is ''supposed'' to be hated, even as his attitude lightens. From a gameplay perspective, once you get his Hover sticker, he becomes a killing machine. The revelation that [[spoiler:he's the actual villain]] turns this into full-out TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste, though the fact that [[spoiler:once he is outed as the real villain, you can do absolutely nothing but meekly let him do whatever he wants -- which, among other things, means shooting you in the head ''for the second time'' -- makes him a ''real'' CreatorsPet to some.]]
