* This is how First Mate Cox becomes chief of the cannibalistic Raiders in ''{{Nation}}''. In that case, he ''meant'' to kill the previous chief; he just didn't know he'd get the job afterward.

** This is also true for the office of Evil, which passes on in [[strike:the exact same way.]] a similar manner, being transferred to whomever successfully cons the title away from the incumbent. If the incumbent resigns and/or gets killed and no one suitable is around to claim it, the role defaults to the most evil person on Earth.

* Among the Children of the Light in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', there is an almost-forgotten section in their law entitled Trial by the Light. One Child claims his right to Trial by the Light to bring another to justice, then the two fight a lethal duel, and the loser's rank and property are forefit to the victor. Galad invokes this to [[spoiler:become Lord Captain Commander of the Children of the Light]].

* Marvel's Shuma-Gorath has near unlimited power in his home dimension but Comicbook/DoctorStrange manages to steal the power of one his generals and defeats Shuma with his own power. However, he finds himself starting to become Shuma-Gorath himself, as the EldritchAbomination had warned would happen. He takes his own life. (Strange's ally Kaluu is able to revive him -- unfortunately Shuma comes back to life as well).
* Comicbook/{{Blade}} becomes the "leader" of a gang in New York called "The Bloodshadows" after he bests their former leader, Cyrus Cutter, in a knife fight. They even followed him back to his native Britain.

* The [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Twenty-Seven Dead Apostle Ancestors]] of the ''{{Nasuverse}}'' work this way: if you manage to kill one, you usurp its position on the list. Because of this, they even have a few non-vampires in their ranks, notably Primate Murder (only included because it killed an Ancestor and happens to enjoy drinking blood, which the Ancestors decided was "close enough") and ORT (an EldritchAbomination which killed one of the Ancestors in its sleep, included because none of the other Ancestors are stupid enough to disturb it).

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' (3.3.0) includes a quest that reveals that 'There must always be a Lich King'. It appears that the transfer of power and title aren't automatic, but if the mantle isn't accepted, the only thing holding the Scourge back would be released. However, the trope was ultimately subverted. Upon the Lich King's defeat, [[spoiler: Tirion Fordring picks up the fallen Crown and reluctantly places it upon the head of Bolvar Fordragon]].
** In the previous Warcraft games, becoming the chieftan of an Orc clan (or the Warchief of the entire Horde) would work this way. Orgrim Doomhammer became Warchief by killing the then-existing Warchief, Blackhand. On the other hand, Orgrim was killed by a human knight, and he passed leadership to Thrall rather than to the knight. So maybe it only works as long as the killer is another orc.
*** The title wouldn't pass to the guard for two reasons. For one, the guard was likely killed as soon as he struck Orgrim. And two, he struck Orgrim from behind, and the orcs would never accept a coward as warchief.
**** And let's not forget three, the orcs are thinking, cognitive beings, not things, and they are at war with the Humans. If a human defeated their warchief fair and square they would simply call him weak and find another Warchief from amongst themselves, not instantly forget decades of bitter war with the humans and suddenly decide to become their pets because of some absurdly strict rule.
*** Furthermore Thrall became warchief of the "new horde" which he assembled from the shattered rests of the old defeated horde.
