* ''{{Bibleman}}'' is a moral substitute for superheroes/superhero shows in general. Unlike some alternatives however, it is aware of how silly and campy it can get.

* Some parents who [[HomeschooledKids school their children at home]] do so because they perceive public school as un-Christian or un-whatever their religion/worldview is. It's also possible for Christian parents to give their children a complete Christian education, all the way from pre-school to Ph.D.

* Music/TheJonasBrothers were marketed by Disney as this to FallOutBoy, PanicAtTheDisco, and other pop-punk acts that exploded during the TurnOfTheMillenium whose music talked about topics like cheating spouses or notches on bedposts. Some posters and promotional materials for the Jonas Brothers even bordered on making them look like a {{Mockbuster}} of these bands, using similar color schemes and font styles to the other bands' current albums.

** The "gang" mentality, by the way, was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] clear into the stratosphere by Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s CMPunk between 2009 and 2011. His "hardcore straight-edge" gimmick, originally heroic, took on a diabolical "cult" flavor, with Punk's followers essentially a group of skinheaded thugs and Punk himself looking disturbingly like Charles Manson (until ReyMysterio shaved him bald).

** This also applies to much of the history of Christian art/music/literature etc. - it doesn't fall under this trope as it isn't a substitute. (Although it may be substituted *for*, as noted elsewhere.)

Added DiffLines:

** Not explicitly Christian (the full lyrics are at least Deist if not specifically Christian, but it's rare to hear more than the first verse), but the same thing happened when Francis Scott Key wrote a patriotic poem about a battle in the War of 1812, which was later set to the drinking tune "To Anacreon in Heaven" and became America's national anthem.

* Although most Christian rock bands don't really fit here, the band [=ApologetiX=] makes blatant use of this trope, as all of their songs are popular secular songs with new Christian lyrics, like a Christian version of Music/WeirdAlYankovic. The most interesting one of their songs is "Spirit Inside." It's a parody of "Spirit in the Sky," which already was a Christian song (and got further tweaked into one by DC Talk), but apparently [=ApologetiX=] ''still'' [[UpToEleven thought a moral substitute was needed!]]
