* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): Highprince Valam ends up as king of Jah Keved due simply to being the last highprince standing after a succession war--and when he discovers this, he's got a nasty gut wound that will kill him painfully over a few weeks. He realizes that [[spoiler:King Taravingian of the minor city-state of Kharbranth]] is the one who engineered the war in the first place, and that he plans to inherit the kingdom after Valam's death. Valam, rather than waiting for people to "conveniently" discover [[spoiler:Taravingian]]'s claim to inheritance through a distant cousin, has [[spoiler:Taravingian]] named as his heir right then and there, then has his bastard son MercyKill him.

Since it's a Tv movie, it should go to television instead of film
* In the ''BabylonFive'' TV movie ''In the Beginning'', Sheridan's greatest victory during the [[HopelessWar Earth-Minbari War]] turns out to be the result of an ambush by the Minbari fleet that destroys all ships but his. Sheridan is the XO on the ship until he notices that his captain has been crushed by a piece of bulkhead. He takes command and manages to destroy the Minbari flagship by luring it into a minefield. Despite not being a full captain at the time, everyone always refers to him being a captain at the time because of this trope. Even Delenn states that only one human captain has ever survived a battle with the Minbari fleet, referring to him. ** Earthforce appears to follow the naval tradition that the commander of a ship is ''always'' the Captain, regardless of actual grade.

* Deconstructed and then reconstructed in ''A Walk in the Sun''. The platoon keeps losing commanders which puts in serious doubt whether the soldiers can fulfill their mission. The lieutenant and platoon sergeant are killed early on and the next senior sergeant is wounded soon after which leaves the shaky Sgt. Porter in command. His inexperience gets some of the men killed and he gets progressively worse with Sgt. Thyne having to step in to compensate for Porter's poor decisions. The pressure finally gets too much and Porter has a nervous breakdown that leaves Thyne in command. By the end it looks like Thyne will also break but he has the good sense to consult with the other NCOs and together they come up with a plan that will hopefully let them complete their mission without getting everyone killed.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', the prologue ends with the death of every Grey Warden in Ferelden at the ill-fated Battle of Ostagar, except for [[PlayerCharacter the Warden]] and Alistair. Despite Alistair being the Senior Warden (by six months), he's reluctant to assume leadership due to both personal issues and having fallen into a depression after the loss of [[AFatherToHisMen Duncan]], his [[ParentalSubstitute surrogate father-figure]]. As a result, the Warden is forced to take command mere hours after their Joining.
