** According to his actor, movie star Creator/WillFerrell, the entire point of Angelo was to briefly bring in a big name actor as a bit of StuntCasting so that people wouldn't immediately abandon the show once Creator/SteveCarell (Michael) left.

Added DiffLines:

* Captain Dozerman from ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'' was similar to Deangelo. He was brought in as an unlikable replacement for Captain Holt, and was then KilledOffForReal after just one episode, leading to Holt's eventual return.

* ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'''s [[spoiler:Erika]], from [=EP5=] and 6. Said character [[BitchInSheepsClothing seems like a nice person]], until TheReveal. [[spoiler:As Bern's gamepiece, she [[ReplacementScrappy supplants Battler]], frames [[TheWoobie Natsuhi]], makes a blatantly impossible plan, denies the use of Red Text just so she can win, and comes close to breaking Battler's brain. She describes herself as [[MindRape an intellectual rapist]].]] You really can't get much worse; since she's effectively [[spoiler:Bernkastel]]'s SelfInsert, she may be the darkest ParodySue in history.

* 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.
