* ''Series/TheNoddyShop'' has Sherman and Rusty treated this way. Every other episode has them as the focus among the toys, usually in a situation where two people had different opinions on a particular topic. Warloworth was also a victim of this trope in episodes where there is a difficult situation a child would misunderstand. It got to the point where due to this, barely any other toys [[ADayInTheLimelight got to have episodes focused on them]], except for Planet Pup [[note]]the main toy character due to his friendship with Truman[[/note]] and Johnny Crawfish [[note]]whose episode where he got focused on had his problem be the B-plot, and it isn't mentioned on the official summary.[[/note]]

* Stephen A Smith, Jemele Hill, Michael Smith and numerous other columnists have been this ever since ''Creator/{{ESPN}}'' became focused more on liberal politics and pop culture while focusing less on highlights in recent months.

** The producers have openly stated that Regina is by far their favorite character, and their first question about literally any plot idea from the writing staff is "How can we make it about Regina?" This really started to be a problem around Season 3 when the show started treating Regina as a hero, which made her seem like an EasilyForgiven KarmaHoudini to many fans. And it got even worse in Season 4 where she wanted to force the Author to write her a new happy ending. And with the 100th episode in Season 5 it's taken UpToEleven: you would expect the 100th episode to star the main character (Emma), but nope, it's Regina. And then in Season 6, [[spoiler: we get '''two''' Reginas taking up screentime since her good half has split from her evil half. Until they ''finally'' got rid the evil half, with Emma looking to be central to "The Final Battle."]]
** Hook has been accused of this because, due to his position as Emma's official love interest, he has gained a more prominent role in the stories than Henry, Snow, or Charming. In Season 5, every main character, including several who have no motivation to do so, choose to [[spoiler:risk traveling into the Underworld to bring him back to life, contradicting the previously established rule that the dead cannot be resurrected]]. Not helping matters is that the resolution to that plot ended with [[spoiler: a literal DeusExMachina that revives him which occurs in an episode that kills Robin permanently and in a way that prevents revival. This occurred after it looked like Hook would stay dead.]]
** Finally, there's Rumplestiltskin / Mr. Gold, who some fans feel has long worn out his welcome by the fifth season and should be considered irredeemable at this point, but who not only continues to stay on the show and in important roles, but more often than not seems to [[KarmaHoudini get off scot-free for all of his evil deeds, if not flat-out rewarded with even MORE power.]]

base on the matter all over again.
** Hook has been accused of this because, due to his position as Emma's official love interest, he has gained a more prominent role in the stories than Henry, Snow, or Charming.

Not helping matters is that the resolution to that plot ended with [[spoiler: a literal DeusExMachina that revives him which occurs in an episode that kills Robin permanently and in a way that prevents revival. This occurred after it looked like Hook would stay dead.]]
]] Love him or hate him, there's little doubt that Hook has received much more preferential treatment from the writers than just about any of the other men in Emma's life, be they former lovers (Neal) or potential love interests (Graham and August).
** Finally, And of course, there's Rumplestiltskin / Mr. Gold, who some fans feel has long worn out his welcome by the fifth season and should be considered irredeemable at this point, but who not only continues to stay on the show and in important roles, but more often than not seems to [[KarmaHoudini get off scot-free for all of his evil deeds, if not flat-out rewarded with even MORE power.]] ]]
** Zelena is seen as this by part of the fandom too. While the fifth season gave Zelena her own redemption arc and did a decent job in fleshing her character out enough for more fans to feel sympathy for her, there were a number of fans who questioned if she was being forgiven ''too'' easily even by the standards of this show. She has at least expressed remorse for the things she did to Regina, but hasn't actually done the same for all the other people she wronged.[[spoiler: Since Zelena's crimes include: manipulating Neal into trading his life to resurrect Rumple, abducting Snow and David's infant son as soon as he was born to use in a magical ritual, potentially killing him, and murdering Robin's lost love Marian in order to masquerade as her, then having sex with Robin (which can be considered rape by fraud) thus producing their daughter -- it can be jarring for viewers to see how easily the group accepted Zelena's change without much fuss.]]

** Lana was kept on ''waaaaay'' past her usefulness as obligatory love interest from the early seasons. It's worth mentioning, though, that most of the main cast members were heavily retooled as the show's focus shifted to Metropolis: Chloe became the Oracle, for instance. However, no amount of retooling could save this ex-cheerleader/professional artist/astronomer/wicca/business magnate/polymath/commando in the public eye and [[TelevisionWithoutPity some people]] marked her as the biggest reason the ratings were dropping. Nonetheless the writers seemed invested in keeping Kristen Kreuk around, inserting her into every storyline they could, if only so she could keep pulling in the teenage girl demographic (even if much of that demographic wanted to punch her in the throat). The writers' persistence could be chalked up to the fact that Lana is traditionally the girl in Clark's past... if ''Smallville'' hadn't made far bigger breaks with tradition, particularly by introducing Lois Lane.

* From ''Series/TwoBrokeGirls'', Sophie was originally intended to stick around for a few episodes as a more or less one-off character; however, her [[TheDitz airheaded]] CloudCuckoolander personality made her well-liked by viewers, so she eventually became a series mainstay. But {{Flanderization}} set in fast, so that by the start of season 3, her likeable traits were all but gone, transforming her character into little more than a [[NoIndoorVoice loudmouthed]], [[AnythingThatMoves sex-crazed]] {{Jerkass}}. Yet as viewer opinion of her plummeted, the show's focus on her soared, to the point that the plotlines of some episodes and even the story arcs behind entire seasons became focused around her, and viewers [[MostAnnoyingSound cringed with anticipation]] of the [[OnceAnEpisode inevitable]] "[[CatchPhrase Hey everybody!]]" "[[StudioAudience WooOOOooo!]]" that marked her appearance in each episode. The show's declining ratings can be pinpointed to the moment Sophie [[SpotlightStealingSquad hijacked the show]], and they didn't have far to slip before the show was ultimately canned in 2017.
