* In ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' ''Dragonborn'', [[spoiler:Hemaeus Mora]] "rewards" the Dragonborn for his victory over his former champion Miraak by declaring the Dragonborn to be Miraak's replacement. [[spoiler:The entire plot of ''Dragonborn'' was essentially Mora's plan to replace Miraak with the Dragonborn, and it's implied that he was sowing the seeds for this even in the main questline.]]

** This is an extremely common behavior among the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]], especially the more outright malevolent ones, when it comes to the ranks of their mortal followers. Boethiah, the Daedric Prince of Plots whose sphere covers murder and betrayal, treats his ([[GenderBender sometimes "her"]]) champions this way. If they've displeased him, or if he has simply [[ItAmusedMe gotten bored]], he may get another worthy mortal to challenge them in combat. If that mortal wins, that mortal takes the champion's place. Boethiah's quests in both ''Skyrim'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]'' involve this.

* ''Carcosa: Weird Science-Fantasy Horror Setting''. In hex 2315 is a wall with a doorway guarded by a Lawful 7th level Bone Man fighter who can only die by combat. If he killed, the person who killed him takes his place as the guard.



* Be extremely careful what you kill in ''TabletopGame/KingdomDeath''; there are roles that must always be filled. Of course, sometimes you won't have a choice.
* ''TabletopGame/UnknownArmies'' supplement ''Statosphere''. One of the ways for an Avatar to replace a Godwalker of their archetype is to kill them in a symbolically correct manner. For example, to replace the Executioner you would have to render them helpless and then execute them, preferably with an axe.

They have the ability to tranform into an intelligent titan when they want and to [[HealingFactor regenerate]] even the most severe wounds. There only exist nine of these titan powers and there are only two ways to inherit them. One consist that if someone turned into an mindless titan eat a titan shifter in their human form, that titan will return to it's previous human form and win the previous titan shifter ability. The other way also implies the dead of the titan shifter. If they died without being devored by another titan, wich can happend due to the titan shifters having only 13 years of life after they inherit the ability, the titan power will be transpased to a random eldian baby, althought this one is not reliable because there are apparently no way to control where the titan power will go.]]

* A somewhat muted example, but ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' and ''VampireTheRequiem'' both feature the act of diablerie, which works like the ''Baccano'' example mentioned above: if one vampire drains another, more powerful vampire, [[DeaderThanDead consuming their soul in the process]], their Generation/Blood Potency goes up a step and they gain knowledge of one of the other vampire's Disciplines. Needless to say, diablerie is considered one of the most dire sins a vampire can commit and is punished with extreme prejudice, lest all the younger vampires turn all the older ones into juice boxes.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': When a Maiden dies, their power transfers either to a young female who is in their thoughts as they die, or jumps to a random, unknown eligible female if the Maiden's last thoughts are about a man or an older, ineligible woman. This power transfer can be deliberately manipulated by having a young, eligible woman murder a Maiden to obtain the power by ensuring the dying Maiden's final thoughts are of her killer.
