** On a more meta sort of way, this also happens to the last big TournamentArc, the 23rd Tenka'ichi Budoukai, when it comes to videogames, as it's rarely included and most of the games that cover it are relatively obscure, do so by demoting [[BigBad Piccolo]] to a WarmUpBoss, or both. Generally, this happens because games either cover "Kid Goku" or "''Z'' (and maybe ''GT'')", and this arc just so happens to be in the middle of both things. Specially bad is ''Attack of the Saiyans'', which despite being focused on the "23rd tourney to Vegeta fight" part, glosses over most of the tournament to the point there's only ONE fight, and not a hard one.

*** Mimi, Joe, and Sora seemed to suffer it the worst. Especially Mimi who being moved to New York give her the smallest amount of appearances. This is TakenUpToEleven in the Tokyopop manga adaptation; almost all scenes involving the 02 kids are completely excised, and Sora, Mimi and Jo are given at most three panels' worth of screentime.
** In an ironic twist of fate, this happened to the newer kids in ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'', even more so than the older kids in 02.

** And let's not forget Nagi, who seems to have steadily drifted out of focus as the primary protagonist since the first flashback arc up until the beginning of the tournament where he [[spoiler: became the BigBad, sorta]], and even then he spent several chapters before the finale wandering around off screen. Of course, no one even comes close to the demotion suffered by Bob Makihara, who went from being a secondary protagonist to being a relatively low-level (if very likable) supporting character.

** The Porygon line are never given episodes to themselves like most other Pokémon, and only appear as background cameos -- and that's if they ever appear at all. Of course, it's understandable given that the one time it ''did'' get the spotlight, [[NeverLiveItDown it swiftly went down in infamy as "the seizure episode"]].

** Edo Phoenix was Judai's main rival in the second season and he was the second most important hero in that season, as both of them can ScrewDestiny. However, once the third season started, Edo faided more and more to the background like most other characters. He only appeared for two episodes or something in the fourth season, where he loses to Judai's almost forgotten rival Manjoume. Though, unlike Manjoume, Edo still retains his badassness and doesn't lose that often, and if he does, it's a barely loss.

** Mr. Crocketts has most of his role and appearances cut in the anime, including the briefcase scene and his explanation of Pegasus' plans to the group.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'' Jonouchi, Honda, and Anzu don't do anything of note, and Ryou is only important in a flashback.
