Added DiffLines:

** Generally, the newest "Team X" crime syndicate gets significantly less screentime than they do in the games, with the Team Rocket trio being more prominent antagonists. Team Skull may be the most egrigious case yet, though -- not only are they given the usual cold shoulder in focus, but the series adapts ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''[='=]s climax before Guzma (at that point [[spoiler:TheDragon to Lusamine]]) shows up!

Added DiffLines:

** The Team Rocket organisation as a whole is largely ignored in favor of heavily focusing on the GoldfishPoopGang of Jessie, James, and Meowth. This is particularly evident in the original series; none of their plotline in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' (such as their hideout in Celadon City or their takeover of Silph) is adapted, Ash only battles Rocket Grunts one time (aboard the S.S. Anne, where they didn't even appear in the games), and even [[BigBad Giovanni]] becomes TheUnfought not only in the Viridian Gym, but for well over fifteen years!
** Thanks to Team Flare's plot in the ''X/Y'' series centering around Zygarde instead, Xerneas and Yveltal play no major role in said series (unlike the version mascots before them). The best they get (outside of a NonSerialMovie) a special at the very end of the series, and even then, only in a flashback/story.

** Happens to the title character of all people. Due to playing TheAce and AloofAlly, the main focus and development is usually given to Chris or another supporting hero, with Sonic only stepping in when the action starts. The roles were reversed in the second series, in which ''Chris'' was DemotedToExtra and Sonic had more focus put on him. AndTheFandomRejoiced.

** Team Asuma has mostly avoided this. Shikamaru became an AscendedExtra during the Immortals Arc and has maintained his status as an important character. Team Asuma then received development during the Fourth Ninja War with Choji this time getting the spotlight. Ino also got to shine as their battles showed how badass the three are together.
** Team Guy did very little for most of the second half, with their only big moment being a fight against a Kisame clone. However, this changes somewhat towards the end of the series. Might Guy himself becomes something of a SixthRanger by defeating [[spoiler:the ''real'' Kisame]] and playing a big role in the fights against [[spoiler:series {{Big Bad}}s Tobi and Madara]]. Neji pulls off [[spoiler:a HeroicSacrifice]], and Lee gets a few shining moments of his own (plus his own [[Manga/RockLeesSpringtimeOfYouth spin-off series]]). Conversely, Tenten essentially was and continues to be an extra (although she does get plenty of attention in the aforementioned spin-off).

** Even the main character has this happen to him from time to time; while the title of the series is Naruto, his rival Sasuke got ''two hundred'' straight chapters featuring him with Naruto barely making a cameo.

Added DiffLines:

* Yuzu was undisputedly the deuteragonist of the early arcs of ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', almost eclipsing Yuya at times and getting a fair amount of development. She takes a noticeable step down in the Synchro arc, and then a major one in each of the following arcs, becoming essentially a LivingMacGuffin and DistressedDamsel and never dueling again after losing at the midpoint of the Synchro arc.

* In ''Anime/ShinryakuIkamusume'', Nagisa Saito became a background character from Season 2 Episode 2 through to Episode 11, to the point of not appearing in a few episodes. Poor girl.

* In ''Anime/{{Bakugan}} New Vestroia'', Dan, Marucho and Shun are all back as regulars, but Runo and Julie only appear in the first episode and Alice doesn't even get that much. (Seriously, the ''girls'' got phased out? What the hell type of show is this?!)

Added DiffLines:

* This happens frequently in the manga adaptations of Battle Spirits.
** In ''Anime/BattleSpiritsShonenToppaBashin'', Meganeko and Card Sensei [[spoiler: are not chosen card battler like their anime counterparts]] and are reduced to background roles as a result. On the Numbers side of things, Masako only appears in a few panels, and Seven gets even worse treatment, with half of his 4-panel cameos being in the form of a shadow. At least all of them fare better than [[AdaptedOut Kyouka Sawaragi]].
** In ''Anime/BattleSpiritsShonenGekihaDan'', Kenzo goes from being one of the main team to a minor villain. And in one of the two Brave manga adaptations, Flora appears on a single page, and has the disservice of being unconscious.
** Neither of the ''Anime/BattleSpiritsHeroes'' manga are generous to the Ohizumi siblings, despite their importance in the anime.
** In ''Anime/BattleSpiritsSwordEyes'', Amarello, Grenada and Haqua suffer from this the most. The latter two being prisoners the entire time.
