** ''VideoGame/CaptainToadTreasureTracker'' gives the spotlight to Captain Toad, previously a bit character in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld''.

** ''VideoGame/CaptainToadTreasureTracker'' gives the spotlight to Captain Toad, previously a bit character in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld''.''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' along with Toadette, who previously mostly appeared in spinoffs. [[spoiler: Mario and friends only appear at the very end of the game in a [[StealthPrequel surprising twist.]]]]


Added DiffLines:

** Bowser's son, Bowser Jr. takes the role of central BigBad for most of ''VideoGame/MarioPlusRabbidsKingdomBattle'' for the first time since ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii''. And unlike that game, Bowser [[PutOnABus is on vacation and has nothing to do with the events of the game]] [[spoiler: [[DemonicPossession until the end.]]]]
** Thanks to the ''Superstar Saga'' remake, the ''entire Koopa Troop'' gets one in the form of ''VideoGame/MinionQuest'': ''The Seatch for Bowser''.


Added DiffLines:

* In addition to being [[ClimaxBoss major bosses]] and [[spoiler:helping during the endgames]], ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' and ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' have [[NewGamePlus extra modes]] allowing you to play the entire game as King Dedede and Meta Knight respectively [[spoiler: complete with final bosses referencing the games they [[AbsenteeActor weren't in]]]].
** The ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure'' and ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' remakes (''Nightmare In DreamLand'' and ''Super Star Ultra'' respectively) started the trend with the ''Meta-Knightmare'' and ''Meta-Knightmare Ultra'' modes respectively.

* ''CowAndChicken'' had "Factory Follies," which featured the Red Guy as a cruel factory owner who holds a birthday party for himself - and no one shows up. (The end reveals that he tied up Cow and Chicken so he could have his own short.)

Added DiffLines:

* Every episode of ''WesternAnimation/StoppitAndTidyup'' was like this. The eponymous characters had friends that each took a turn serving a major role in an episode. The only character who didn't get an episode dedicated to them is Not Now, who is I Said No's pet.

Added DiffLines:

* With its LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' does this ''a lot'' with its "Interlude" tie-in oneshots, focusing on events that happen during the main story and with characters that aren't Ash and company. Some of these have even Characters of the Day as their protagonists.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' has the tendency to do this with a lot of their shows. Most notably in direct-to-DVD movies. They're usually devoted to [[TheRival the second Rider]], but a few had been devoted to an EnsembleDarkhorse or even a VillainEpisode. Most of these often give them a SuperMode, an AcePrototype, or some variant of a new form. Some even outright ''give'' them a Rider form, as they had none prior to the limelight. Examples of these include:
** ''Series/KamenRiderAgito'': It had an episode devoted to the secondary Rider, Gills.
** ''Series/KamenRiderHibiki'': While Asumu is a main character and the focal point, he gets a huger spotlight in the Hyper Battle Video where he becomes an Oni.
** ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'': Focuses on Kagami's efforts to be like Tendou, ending with him getting his own Hyper Zecter.
** ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'': It had several movies devoted to Zeronos, [[KidFromTheFuture New Den-O]], and even [[PhantomThief Kaito]] from ''Series/KamenRiderDecade''.
** ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'': Post movies were devoted to Accel and [[FallenHero Eternal]]. It's also notable that one half of a movie was devoted to [[CoolMentor Skull]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'': Had four of these movies devoted to Baron, [[WellIntentionedExtremist Zangetsu]], [[EnsembleDarkhorse Knuckle]], and [[MadScientist Duke]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'': Had three movies devoted to [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Chaser]], Heart, and Mach.
** ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'': Had one movie devoted to Specter.
** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Probably the one show that cranked this trope UpToEleven, as every secondary Rider save for the villains end up getting their own story.

** Particular emphasis on ''Nor the Battle to the Strong", a very powerful episode starring Jake, whose prior role was primarily either comic relief or a foil for Sisko.
