* ''Roleplay/ToBoldlyGoAStarfleetQuest'': When Solomon Rogers got the job as head of Starfleet, several other high-ranking Admirals immediately went on sabbatical. Naturally, this engendered plenty of speculation about what the various motives were. Some, perhaps, wished to register their displeasure or disgust in the strongest possible terms and with an unmistakable gesture. Others may have stepped away out of a healthy sense of self-preservation, realizing rightly that Rogers' headstrong brashness would inevitably spark a dispute with the council. We know for sure that at least two, Vitalia Kahurangi and Valentina Sousa, saw the writing on the wall and recognized it as an opportunity to return as a sort of untainted post-Rogers white knight, earning cheap political points by establishing an early and easy contrast with their predecessor. Indeed, they succeeded thoroughly enough to become TBG's first two [[PlayerCharacter player characters]]. Rogers' own remaining loyalists (the "Old Guard") were naturally displeased by this power play, which is the in-story reason for their [[WatsonianVersusDoylist lack of mechanical benefits]].

* ''Series/{{House}}''
** Dr. House quit from Princeton-Plainsboro on two different occasions. The first time, he quit when Cuddy forbade him from taking methadone to treat his leg pain, only to come back when Cuddy permitted him to do so under her supervision (he returned to vicodin afterwards as well). The second time was after he finished rehab and feared that familiar settings would put him in danger of a relapse, only to find that the only thing other than vicodin that kept his pain at bay was working at Princeton-Plainsboro and solving medical mysteries.
** Dr. Foreman quit from Princeton-Plainsboro out of fear of becoming more like House and tried to work at New York Mercy, only to be fired from there for violating protocol in a very House-like manner. He eventually returned to Princeton-Plainsboro when it became clear that no one would hire him except for the hospital that would tolerate House.

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' Carson had mere days in retirement enjoying time with his grandson while his son took over the family tradition of being the Heterodynes' seneschal before the Other's attack on the Castle killed his son and became a harbinger of the dark times ahead. After the attack, he arranged and led a shadow government for Mechanicsburg, essentially rendering the nominal Wulfenbach-appointed city administration impotent. He has since (semi) retired again, letting his grandson Vanamonde, now an adult, take over.

* Creator/SeanMalstrom swore that he would abandon his blog and gaming after finding out that Creator/{{Nintendo}} planned to imprint a recycling logo on the inside of UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} game cases. He claimed that a similar alteration to {{S|uperNintendoEntertainmentSystem}}NES boxes was the catalyst for him forsaking gaming up until ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'' came out. This didn't have any effect on his blog post output or his gaming habits whatsoever.
