* [[CousinOliver Olivia]] in ''Series/TheCosbyShow'' was dangerously close to being this. Lampshaded in the episode "Nightmare on Stigwood Avenue."

* Since the start of the third season of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', Felicity Smoak. In seasons 1 & 2, she was an {{Adorkable}} IT Girl with an unrequited crush on the main character, and the source of a lot of the show's humour. As of the third season, she has supplanted Laurel Lance (Green Arrow's iconic LoveInterest from the source material) as the female lead & love interest, has taken on several of the traits that once led to Laurel & Thea being considered TheScrappy, receives more screentime than any other character on the show aside from Oliver Queen, is consistently depicted as being in the right even when she is being unreasonable, receives CharacterShilling from seemingly every other character on the show - including the antagonists, and has become a SpotlightStealingSquad with a good chunk of seasons 3 & 4 being dedicated to her subplots. In comparison, the characters of Roy, Laurel and Thea are pushed OutOfFocus despite becoming the show's incarnations of Arsenal, Black Canary & Speedy; and Diggle (Arguably the show's true fan favourite character) only received a proper subplot in season 4 because it was tied so closely to the main plot and, outside of that, he didn't receive that much attention either. On top of all of this, season 4 opens with the reveal that a major character would killed off by the end of the season, and Felicity was one of two characters deemed untouchable by the writers - the other being the main character. It all culminated in her stealing the special moment of one of comics' most iconic couples, [[SuperCouple Barry Allen and Iris West,]] literally interrupting them in the middle of their vows to tack on her own wedding to Oliver.

As of season 5, it looks like the writers got the hint, since Felicity's role has been severely downgraded and she's no longer being constantly shilled.

** Charlie Bradbury. While fan reaction is very mixed, she's considered a Scrappy to many, but she definitely qualifies by her second appearance. If being an over-the-top {{adorkable}} genius hacker (that even Big Bad Dick Roman [[CharacterShilling thinks is amazing and special]]) who just happens to be a lesbian wasn't enough, she returns in a later episode, where she's introduced beating a LARP-knight in a swordfight and gets talked up by more and more characters. And in her next episode, she suddenly has ImprobableAimingSkills, a BelatedBackstory, and is an AscendedFangirl. Additionally, she's an AuthorAvatar for [[missyjack.livejournal.com/954514.html writer Robbie Thompson]]. It also doesn't help that she ended up being a rather unsubtle mouthpiece for the writers' political views.

* ''Series/{{ER}}'': Abby Lockhart, who became the show's central character shortly after she joined, with many episodes focusing on her and her miserable life and equally miserable personality, yet always making her out to be the heroine or victim in whatever situation arose.

** Since she came to town, Dixie Cooney was consistently portrayed as the town sweetheart, heroine, saint, etc., despite the fact that she participated in the same shenanigans as most of the other characters--adultery, promiscuity. When ex-husband Adam sued her for custody of their son--JR, incidentally--much like JR would be 20-something years later, HE was the one vilified by everyone, despite his completely legitimate concerns about Dixie's unstable behavior.
