* ''{{Nodwick}}'' had a ''Highlander'' parody issue, in which this trope was naturally a major plot point.

* United States Presidential Campaigns. This show lasts for over a year, with plenty of suspense and commentary. The losers get to make tearful speeches, either endorsing the winner at the convention, or conceding defeat in the general election. A nonlethal example, the ConsolationPrize usually being either a Cabinet postion or the lecture circuit depending on whether or not one's party wins.

Sadly, the election does not involve the candidates dueling each other with swords...

* The premise of ''VideoGame/LordsOfTheRealm2'' is that five nobles are warring over a SuccessionCrisis. Alliances can be made, but are inherently temporary; if you and your AI ally are the only nobles left standing, the AI will immediately break the alliance, citing this trope.

* The main plot of ''Fanfic/LokiAgentOfDoomgard'' is this, even the Trope namer is referenced. It's a Comicbook/SecretWars2015 fic about main universe Loki trying to stop other Lokis from killing off other Lokis and the bodies just keep piling up.

* In ''{{VideoGame/Yakuza}}'', Kazuma Kiryu, "The Dragon of Dojima", is considered TheParagon and all-around biggest badass of the criminal underworld, leading to at least one rival per game being driven by jealousy or ambition to defeat him and become the next "Dragon", frequently with the TattooedCrook sporting dragon tattoos of their own just to emphasise this trope[[note]]And just for completeness sake, two have carp tattoos, referring to a legend where a carp that swims to the top of a waterfall becomes a dragon [[/note]].

** The first edition of AD&D had much the same thing going on with Assassins. The highest two levels, 14 and 15 are reached by taking over an assassin's guild by killing the Guildmaster (a 14th-level assassin) and by finding and killing one of the existing Grandmasters in order to reach Grandmaster level (15th) yourself.

* The ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' series basically revolves around the mortal children of the God of Murder, who he created before his death to inherit his power and become his successor. In the first game, one of his sons plans to start a brutal and bloody war to use all the fallen as a sacrifice in a ritual that will turn him to the new God of Murder. In the GrandFinale in the addon to the second game, all the remaining children start to hunt down and kill each other to absorb all the fragments of their fathers divine power and [[AGodAmI become a god.]] [[spoiler: The god in question actually planned for them to ''all'' die so their energy could be used to bring him back to life. Of course, this doesn't go quite as planned either... and the player character ''can'' take his powers at the end of it all. ''Without'' killing absolutely all the others, since Imoen can give up her share of the power voluntarily.]]

* ''{{Sekirei}}'' combines this trope with the HaremGenre, with human masters known as Ashikabi forming bonds with HumanAliens. There are OneHundredAndEight of them, and powerful Ashikabi are capable of forming bonds with multiple Sekirei, building a formidable BattleHarem that improves their chances of victory. This, however, is a cruel twist since it turns out the rule remains strictly ''one'' surviving Sekirei regardless of how many an Ashikabi has. Miya even calls out Matsu on encouraging harem-building, pointing out the cruelty of encouraging people to bond and fall in love, when all but one will have to die in the end.

* In the JunjiIto manga Tomie, whenever two versions of Tomie meet, they inevitably try kill each other, usually by getting someone else to do the dirty work. However, a [[FetusTerrible weakened or defenseless Tomie]] is low enough on the threat meter that Tomie may kill it herself.
