* ''Series/Dinosaurs'' had one episode where Robbie accidentally kills the leader of a gang, thus ending up as their leader. He doesn't mind until he realizes how unfortunate that position is. So he and his family decide to try to [[FakingTheDead fake his death]]...which almost leads to [[ItMakesSenseInContext him being eaten alive]]. In the end it is revealed that Robbie never actually killed the leader and that the guy instead had LaserGuidedAmnesia and got lost in the swamps because of it.

* Taking over the version of Earth seen in the WebOriginal/SCPFoundation is a bad idea, as seen in SCP-2998's various iterations. [[spoiler:An alien race successfully takes over Earth, but doesn't realise that the planet is absolutely infested with dangerous anomalies that the Foundation was keeping contained. The result is that the aliens' new civilisation on Earth collapses as they try to fix the mess they've made. A ResetButton ends up being necessary to fix things.]]

** Interestingly enough, [[spoiler:Lelouch becomes the Emperor of Brittania and then Suzaku becomes ''Zero'' by both killing the previous holder of those titles. These were just part of Lelouch's final {{plan}} rather than a tradition, though.]]

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': The power of the Dark One has this stipulation, which Rumplestiltskin wasn't completely aware of until it was too late. It also has a ICannotSelfTerminate clause, so the previous Dark One had to manipulate Rumplestiltskin into killing him.

* This is the usual (but not the only) method of obtaining Shardblades and Shardplate in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', although it wasn't always that way. It's usually done deliberately although it's possible that [[spoiler: Shallan]] may have obtained [[spoiler: her Shardblade]] at least partially accidentally. [[CrypticBackgroundReference It's unclear]]. [It's very much cleared up in the second book.]

** Throughout all the Cosmere novels, the main way to become a Shardholder (basically, a God) is to kill the previous one. The original Shardholders were a group of people who banded together to kill God for a variety of reasons and each walked away with a Shard of his power. Unfortunately, the power doesn't come with an instruction book or any sort of guidelines on how nigh-unlimited power ''should'' be used, resulting in multiple cases of GodIsInept.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Death Watch", two planetary systems wage surrogate war via gunfighters in a CombatByChampion. The First Champion of Teal is Tarrant's brother, who gets killed by a YoungGun. Tarrant then takes on the new champion and kills him. Avon quietly informs him that according to tradition, ''he'' is now the First Champion of Teal, causing Avon and Tarrant to agree for the first time in their lives by calling for an immediate teleport out of there.
