** Feedback is this trope in the eyes of some fans; he is introduced as being Ben's favorite alien when he was 11, despite the original show clearly establishing Fourarms as Ben's favorite in the original series era. Few reasons about why Ben likes him so much are given, with him simply saying he is "[[CharacterShilling cool and awesome]]" or mentioning "he felt like he was a part of me" (It was hinted in ''Showdown Part 2'' that [[spoiler:the form had an addictive effect on him]], but [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot this was never explored further]]). He also tends to be conveniently [[ManOfKryptonite remarkably effective to defeat a lot of specific powerful opponent]], to the point of almost becoming a DeusExMachina (such as when he turns out to be the ideal alien to defeat [[spoiler:Argost]], or when he manages to defeat Ultimate Humongousaur easily, [[FridgeLogic even though Ultimate Humongousaur's abilities aren't energy-related]]). One of the most infamous examples is the series' finale, where [[spoiler:he somehow proves a more effective form to contain Maltruant's DoomsdayDevice than ''[[CrystalDragonJesus Chromastone]]''.]] To some fans, it just feels like the writers were trying ''way'' too hard to turn him into an EnsembleDarkhorse.
** Ma Vreedle and the Incurseans also got some accusations of being this. Derrick Wyatt contributed to create both, and both were introduced in ''Alien Force'' and ''Ultimate Alien'' as minor, mostly comedic villains. And now that Wyatt is in charge, suddenly the Incurseans are [[AscendedExtra upgraded to Big Bad rank for an entire arc]], making them the first major baddies in the whole franchise to not be [[KnightOfCerebus Knights of Cerebus]], while Ma Vreedle made ''[[ArchEnemy Vilgax]]'' cry. To add insult to injury, Vilgax got DemotedToExtra with his first episode being essentially a filler in the Incursean story arc.

* There were so many restrictions on Disney writers to deal with MickeyMouse, that any other character in a given Mickey cartoon practically got a carte blanche to steal the spotlight. The strange irony is that this happened because ''Mickey was the Creator's Pet'' of Mr. Disney, not the other characters.

** Denzel Crocker and Timmy's dad have become this since Season 7 onward. [[WordOfGod Butch Hartman himself has admitted that]] [[CreatorsFavorite they're his favorite characters]] and he thinks they tend to be used as the main source of humor in the series. Since [[SeasonalRot Season 9]], fans think the two got their own SpinOff called "[[FanNickname The Mr. Crocker and Timmy's Dad Show]]".

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Starlight Glimmer began getting accusations of this after "The Cutie Re-Mark". [[BrokenBase Depending who you ask]], later episodes have either addressed these complaints, retained them or added new ones. Complaints include [[StoryBreakerPower having too much power for a normal Unicorn]] [[note]]Pre-Alicorn Twilight Sparkle was still the Element of Magic, King Sombra ("The Crystal Empire") was actually an EldritchAbomination, and Trixie Lulamoon ("Magic Duel") and Rarity ("Inspiration Manifestation") were wielding [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts of Doom]]; Starlight's only given excuse was "potential."[[/note]], being too EasilyForgiven for her crimes despite her weak FreudianExcuse, and other characters [[CharacterShilling praising her too easily]] or giving them the JerkassBall or [[TheWorfEffect weakening]] them to make her look better.
** The issues became more pronounced when ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsMagicalMovieNight Mirror Magic]]'', the Equestria Girls special featuring Starlight. Many found it to be an ever worse example of the issues featured in [[spoiler:''To Where and Back Again'', such as the [[FanNickname Humane Six]], [[SixthRanger along with Sunset Shimmer]], get [[TheWorfEffect worfed]] just so Starlight can save the day on her own, without giving her the [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap positive character development]] that balanced it out]]. These flaws are taken UpToEleven in ''Equestria Girls: Magic, Magic Everywhere!'', the {{Novelization}} of all three specials, where Starlight is present throughout the events of all three episodes, taking away some characters' feats, such as coming up with the idea for the Music Video instead of that being Rarity's own idea, [[SpotlightStealingSquad or removing other characters' screen-time]], such as replacing the Shadowbolts in the Music Video itself.
