* ''Film/TheOne'' had a man jumping from dimension to dimension to kill off AlternateUniverse versions of himself, in order to gain power. This is noted to be a [[InvertedTrope bad thing]], however, as it's implied that if he succeeds it will [[ApocalypseHow destroy the dimension he's in]].

* At one point the main man Comicbook/{{Lobo}} died. Luckily, he can regenerate from a single drop of blood. Unluckily, there were several thousand drops of blood splattered across a battlefield. So, several thousand Lobos found themselves in one place -- and what followed was a awesome and horrifying deathmatch, until only one Lobo remained. The funny thing about this was that Lobo ''always'' had this power -- Vril Dox, Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} 2, suppressed it. It wasn't until Lobo was forcibly regressed to a teen that it came back.

* The duel of the 13 Riders in ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki''.

to:

* The ''Franchise/KamenRider'':
** This occurs in ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' on a smaller scale. A
duel between two riders in a contest of who is to be God.
** The Rider War in ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' is probably
the most well known example of this trope in ''Kamen Rider''. In this series, 13 Riders fight it out to the death. The winner gets to have his or her wish granted. The alternate universe version portrayed in ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki''.''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' turned this battle into a trial, in which the victor of the battle gets to determine wether the accused is guilty or not.
** Each of the 53 [[MonsterOfTheWeek Undead]] in ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' is an immortal avatar of one of the species on earth. Once in every ten thousand years, they fight against each other to determine which species gets to rule the earth. In the previous battle, the Human Undead won, thus making humanity the dominant species. [[spoiler: It turns out that the battle taking place during the series was manipulated by the organization [=BOARD=]. Their plan was to create their own artificial Undead and having it win the battle, thus allowing the chairman of [=BOARD=] to recreate the world in his image.]]



** This also occurs in ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' on a smaller scale. A duel between two riders in a contest of who is to be God.
** This also occurs again in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' where, in the end,[[spoiler:Kouta Kazuraba and Kaito Kumon become the only two remaining riders worthy enough to claim the [[ForbiddenFruit Golden Fruit]] and fight to the death for the right to [[PhysicalGod rule the world with it.]]]]

** This also occurs again in
In ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' where, it is slowly revealed that the only way to save the world from being destroyed is to claim the legendary [[ForbiddenFruit Golden Fruit]], which gives its eater godlike powers. Naturally, multiple factions start fighting over it, resulting in this trope. In the end,[[spoiler:Kouta Kazuraba and Kaito Kumon become the only two remaining riders worthy enough to claim the [[ForbiddenFruit Golden Fruit]] and fight to the death for the right to [[PhysicalGod rule the world with it.]]]]

* The ''Dragonborn DLC'' for ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' begins with the First Dragonborn, Miraak sending his cult members to eliminate the protagonist for being a "[[NoTrueScotsman False Dragonborn]]" and an obvious threat to his power. The Dragonborn survives the attempt and journeys to Solstheim, hellbent on hunting him down.

to:

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** In series' lore, the [[CatFolk Khajiit]] are led by the Mane, an unofficial "head of state" for all Khajiit.
The ''Dragonborn DLC'' Mane is not a standard sub-species of Khajiit, but tradition holds that only one Mane may be alive at any one time, since the Mane is [[{{Reincarnation}} one entity reborn in different bodies]] with the passage of time. The veracity of this is unknown, but there has been no recorded instance of multiple Manes contending for ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' power.
** The ''Dragonborn'' DLC for ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''
begins with the First Dragonborn, Miraak Miraak, sending his cult members to eliminate the protagonist PlayerCharacter for being a "[[NoTrueScotsman False Dragonborn]]" and an obvious threat to his power. The Dragonborn survives the attempt and journeys to Solstheim, [[GrimUpNorth Solstheim]], hellbent on hunting him down.

* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest''. It's based off ''Literature/BattleRoyale'', therefore this should also be fairly self-explanatory. For those of you not in the know, the idea is that an island full of students are to kill each other until there is only one survivor.

* 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.
