* This is the whole plot of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls1''. Twilight Sparkle (an Equestrian pony) chases [[EvilCounterpart Sunset Shimmer]] into the human world to recover the crown she has stolen, but to do that she will have to enroll in a high school and get crowned Princess of the school ball - a position which has been held by [[AlphaBitch Sunset Shimmer]] for years. This despite [[{{Adorkable}} not knowing virtually anything about the human world]]. [[spoiler:And she succeeds, but Sunset Shimmer just steals it again.]]

* Parodied on ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' in the trailer for the [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/pqtrailer.html Peasant's Quest movie]]. The King of Peasantry accuses Rather Dashing of being this for trying to disrupt the centuries-old co-existence between Trogdor and the peasants. Said "co-existence" involves Trogdor burninating the peasants and razing their settlements whenever the hell he wants, while the peasants can't do a thing to stop him.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Aang acts as one of these in "The Headband" when he becomes accidentally enrolled in a straight-laced Fire Nation school. And being the friendly, world-traveling free spirit he is, he won't settle for anything less than throwing everyone a dance party. Yes, that's a reference to ''Film/{{Footloose}}''.

* The premise of ''LightNovel/DestructionFlagOtome'' is that a bitchy otome game villain girl suddenly gets the personality of a cheery tomboy character and morphs into a SpotlightStealingSquad instead, stealing the protagonist role in the process. She accidentally fixes everyone's problems with her stupid optimism and friendliness, accidentally seducing all the game's love interests, rival characters, side characters and even the game's heroine herself. People are attracted to her not just because she's nice, but also because she's so damn ''weird'' and out of place that they have no clue what she's going to do.

* Played with in the film ''{{Film/Doubt}}''. Father Flynn is a Catholic priest who brings a fun modern way of teaching to a Roman Catholic school. And while most people are happy with the his new approach, he clashes with Sister Aloysius who values the old fashion ways and still has a lot of power and influence in the school. [[spoiler: She eventually accuses him of molesting a vulnerable boy which forces him to resign. However, the question remains: Was he guilty? Or did Sister Aloysius use her position in the school to force someone out she didn't like?]]

Added DiffLines:

*Clarisse [-McClellan-] of ''Literature/Farenheit451'' is one of the few people who view the world with all it's beauty, in contrast to all the people who engage in [[{{Dystopia}} crimes]], [[NewMediaAreEvil mindless and shallow entertainment]], and enjoy illiteracy. She is the main reason why [[PunchClockVillain Montag]] [[spoiler:Changes his mind about books]]. [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie She is promptly killed for her troubles]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SantaClaritaDiet'': The main character, Sheila, is a deconstruction. Turned into a zombie, she has less mental restraint than ever, and becomes chirpy, lively, fun and encourages everyone to get whatever they want and not think about the consequences, to the point of saying that, if her daughter wants it, she should quit school and become a poet. By the end of a season one episode, she realizes she can't keep doing this, as her encouragement has caused one of her friends to start an affair and strained the marriage of their neighbors when she told the husband to buy a new car without consulting his wife while telling the wife to go follow a musician on tour for almost a month and let her husband take care of their newborn twins.
