* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' deserves props for having several stories where a secondary character is spotlighted ("Timberly Loves Arnold" with Gerald's younger sister and "Career Day" with the neighborhood ice cream man, for example).

* In the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', there are over a dozen canon authors, so this is becoming typical. There has been a story on the side character The Grunts (the superpowered kids who are in a version of JROTC and plan to go into military service); one with them, plus Folder, plus one of the school sociopaths; a Combat Final featuring a student who's the daughter of a notorious supervillain, ...
%%** Aquerna.
** All the special combat finals vignettes that aren't part of the main character stories. Except Aquerna's, because her story was so popular she now has an ongoing novel and she has probably graduated to 'protagonist'.

** There exist fics for characters who were never even named in story, but aren't [=OC=]s because their names can be spotted on the class list JK holds up in Harry Potter and Me. No house name, no plot point, no canon existence.

* Three of the ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' ''Special'' novels (the prequel stories set before the main series) feature stand-alone stories centering around [[RedHeadedHeroine Lina's]] bodyguard [[IdiotHero Gourry]], the princess [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Amelia,]] and the chimera Zelgadiss. The former two take place prior to Lina's adventures with them (Gourry's in particular doubles as a minor OriginStory insofar as to how he met Lina and why he became a wandering merc), while Zelgadiss' takes place some time after he and Amelia split up from Lina and Gourry.

* Creator/DavidEddings tends to take occasional trips back in sequel series (''The Malloreon'', which follows the Literature/{{Belgariad}}, and The Tamuli, which follows Literature/TheElenium). Usually just before a significant event, a chapter gets devoted to characters not currently connected with the main plot, showing the things happening to them. Such chapters are usually sectioned off to show various different subplots in the same chapter. A notable example occurs in The Tamuli. A massive order is sent out to assassinate conspirators against the Tamul Empire. One chapter is devoted to a number of those assassins carrying out the order, displaying their various styles and personalities.

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' has "Peggy Makes the Big Leagues". Peggy begins substitute teaching at high school and ends up failing the star football player, who under the "No Pass No Play" rule gets suspended from the team. Everyone else (even regular StraightMan Hank) throws a fit and does their best to go around Peggy just so the team can get to state. Peggy is normally a BaseBreaker, but in this episode she's completely in the right and sticks to her morals in the face of overwhelming peer pressure.

** Season 6 actually seems to consist of more Day in the Limelight episodes then ones focused on Finn and Jake, which has served as something of a BaseBreaker.
