* With much {{foreshadowing}}, this happens to [[NewMeat Sergeant Savage]] in ''{{We Were Soldiers}}'', leaving him in command of a platoon cut off from the rest of their battallion overnight. In RealLife, there were higher-ranking men present, but they were all pinned down, and he happened to be next to the [[CommunicationsOfficer radio operator]], meaning he was the senior man able to communicate with the Battallion HQ.

* In ''Fanfic/SonOfTheSannin'', Hiruzen Sarutobi is heavily injured [[spoiler: fighting Fugaku Uchiha during the clan's insurrection]], and while he survives, he's forced to step down as Hokage, naming Jiraiya his successor. Jiraiya is reluctant at first, but ultimately accepts if only to prevent Danzo from seizing the position.

* ''FanFic/WarOfTheBiju'': When every member of the Five Kage (which consists of six people because Naruto and Tsunade share the title of Hokage) are forced onto the battlefield, Shikaku, who is Konoha's Jonin Commander, is put in charge of HQ, and thus the ''entire'' war effort. That means he commands forces of all five of the major villages plus samurai from the Land of Iron.

* BridgeBunny Amy of ''LyricalNanoha'' gets smacked with this trope in the second season when the [[CoolShip Arthra]] is being refitted with the [[WaveMotionGun Arc-en-ciel]], requiring everyone above her to go to the main office a few dimensions over. She just has to [[TemptingFate tempt fate]].

Usually the "promotion" involved is strictly temporary. Either the people who are supposed to do the job will return from whatever made them unavailable in the first place, or a replacement will eventually appear. On the other hand, in a continuing series, a stint of YouAreInCommandNow is not exactly a hindrance to [[RankUp promotion]], since it shows {{Leader}}ship.
