** This is how Dragoon Spirits are obtained to begin with, as the Spirits are really the crystallized soul and life force of a dragon. These crystals only form at the very last moments of a dragon's life and are implied to disappear almost immediately after the dragon actually dies, so in order to obtain a Dragoon Spirit from a dragon you need to be present at the moment of its death.

* 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.
