** Misty had a ''mini-series'' in the Limelight in the [[TournamentArc Tournament half]] of the Whirl Islands arc. Notable instances include Brock being a MomentKiller for [[FluffyTamer Misty squeeing]] [[MakingASplash over a]] [[PrincessesPreferPink Corsola]] and [[TheHero Ash]] being designated as the "Minor Friendly [[TheRival Rival]]." A possible justification is that she would leave the show a little over a year later.

* If the characters are villain/antagonists in the work, then it's a VillainEpisode.

* Most of ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'''s day in the limelight strips have typically been backup strips, focusing on [[VillainEpisode the various monsters and villains]] the Doctor's faced, but there have been a few that fit this trope better, including several for strip-original characters, several for the Time Lords, one for Sarah Jane Smith and K9, one for K9 solo, one for young Amy and Rory, and one for the Paternoster Gang.



* ''Fanfic/ACertainUnknownLevel0'': Every arc is based around a character and their interaction with Touma and learning more about what makes him, him. With those of the Science side helping or getting involved with the struggles against MINUS and those of the Magic side are more standalone.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' was ''planned'' as one of these (not to a particular series, but to any one that plays city/palace guards as Mooks), but they proved too popular and became {{Ascended Extra}}s such that a whole arc of stories are devoted to them now.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E2122ShortFilmsAboutSpringfield 22 Short Films About Springfield]]" gave a ton of minor characters vignettes of their own. Professor Frink is late, and can only manage to belt out his planned theme song ("Professor Frink, Professor Frink, he makes you laugh, he makes you think...").
%%*** Moe is a particularly strong example of this.

A secondary or {{Ensemble|s}} character gets the primary focus for an episode in an atypical fashion. This can be used to either give various cast members a rest, both for the actor and for the audience or to allow different episodes to be shot simultaneously to save on time or costs. It can also be used to explore the possibility of an [[AscendedExtra expanded role]] for a {{recurring|Character}} or secondary character, or to [[PoorlyDisguisedPilot set up a]] ''SpinOff''. Fans of secondary characters may explore the idea of their favourite character becoming the primary protagonist in a {{FanFic}}.
