Added DiffLines:

** The fifth season has an episode where Jack has disappeared and his new ally, [[HeelFaceTurn Ashi]], searches for him while meeting various characters whom he'd helped in the past.


Added DiffLines:

** Just about each of the {{Muggle}} characters has had a spotlight episode where Steven helps them with some problem; "Crashing Skies/Rising Tides" is particularly notable, since it's framed as [[ConspiracyTheorist Ronaldo]]'s documentary of the weird things that happen in Beach City.
** There are also three flashback episodes focusing on Steven's parents, Greg and Rose, plus a fourth where Steven's a baby and we see the Gems trying to deal with him (which is really them trying to deal with [[PosthumousCharacter Rose being gone now]]).

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}} #29: The Sickness'' gave Cassie one of these.

to:

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}} #29: The Sickness'' gave Cassie one of these. She gets as many POV books as the other characters, but in this one [[SickEpisode everyone but her gets sick]], forcing her to go on a very dangerous mission alone. Oh, and give Ax brain surgery.

Added DiffLines:

* The WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat episode [[Recap/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat1x103VavoomLearnsHowToFish "Vavoom Learns How To Fish"]] is largely centered on recurring bit-player Vavoom (a little impish kid with a very loud voice), as Felix spends the bulk of the episode stuck trying to keep the dam leak from getting worse while Vavoom tries (and fails) to seek help.

* Happens a lot in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', to the point where a '''majority''' of seasons six and seven fall under this trope. The show is quite fond of having secondary and tertiary characters that would otherwise be PluckyComicRelief getting their chance to shine. For example, there's Tree Trunks ("Tree Trunks", "The Apple Thief", "Dream of Love"), Lumpy Space Princess ("The Monster", "Gotcha!"), BMO ("BMO Noire"), Magic Man ("Sons of Mars"), and the Earl of Lemongrab ("You Made Me!"). Even ''Jake's tail'' has its own episode ("Sad Face"). Some of these can double as {{WhamEpisode}}s, such as "I Remember You" being a {{TearJerker}}y episode focusing on [[VegetarianVampire Marceline]] and [[TragicVillain Ice King]]'s [[AfterTheEnd history]] [[IntergenerationalFriendship together]].

* Happens a lot in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime.'' The show is quite fond of having otherwise PluckyComicRelief characters getting their chance to shine. This has been done with Tree Trunks ("Tree Trunks", "The Apple Thief", "Dream of Love"), Lumpy Space Princess ("The Monster", "Gotcha!"), BMO ("BMO Noire"), Magic Man ("Sons of Mars"), and the Earl of Lemongrab ("You Made Me!"). Even ''Jake's tail'' has its own episode ("Sad Face").
** "Thank You" takes the [[{{Snowlem}} Snow Golem]], who pretty much only appeared in one or two background shots, and tells a story about it going to the Fire Kingdom to return a lost Fire Wolf cub to its family. "I Remember You" is a {{TearJerker}}y episode focusing on [[VegetarianVampire Marceline]] and [[TragicVillain Ice King]]'s [[AfterTheEnd history]] [[IntergenerationalFriendship together]]. "Mystery Dungeon" starred Ice King, Tree Trunks, Shelby, Earl of Lemongrab, and NEPTR.
** Season 6 actually seems to consist of more Day in the Limelight episodes then ones focused on Finn and Jake.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitchesTeaParty'': This game is focused on her, in comparison to the prequel that is set in its future, ''VideoGame/TrickAndTreat'', which was focused on her familiar, Amelia.



* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Every once in a while, a story is told from a minor character's point of view. One of the earliest examples is "[[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/original-timeline/364-it-s-good-to-be-the-don It's Good to be the Don]]", following Don Sebastiano.
