Despite Misty and Brock’s concerns about Krabby never being in a fight before, Ash used him in the first round of the Pokémon League, and Krabby turned out to be an incredible fighter, winning the entire round by himself and even evolving into Kingler during the process.

* The Interlude chapters in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' each switch to the POV from the protagonist to some other character, with the level of relevance to the current storyline varying depending on the character, but each Interlude is woven into the overall MythArc of the setting. Each plot arc ends with one, but the author writes extra such as donation bonuses.

** Luigi is usually Player Two or absent completely, but there's a bunch of games that give him the spotlight:
*** His first was in the educational game ''VideoGame/MarioIsMissing''.
*** ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' gave him a starring role as the PlayerCharacter.
*** All three of the ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros'' cartoons had an episode starring him. One of them ("Life's Ruff") didn't even have Mario or any other main characters besides Hip and Hop Koopa appear.

* The fourth season of ''ArrestedDevelopment'' takes this trope and runs with it, with each episode being a Day in the Limelight for a specific character, so that each of the nine leads receives one or two in the fifteen-episode run. They even get their own slight variation on the main titles and opening music, with each character represented by an instrument that plays over the original score for their episodes, and with the other characters introduced according to their relationship with that episode's lead (in the original three seasons, it was always everyone else's relation to Michael). This was partly due to budgetary and scheduling reasons: since the series had been UnCancelled by Netflix seven years after the original run ended, most of the actors were committed to other projects and resurrecting ''Arrested'' was more of a labour of love, meaning it had to be filmed whenever the leads were available. This was most noticeable in Buster's story line: due to Tony Hale's lead role on ''Series/{{Veep}}'' being quite time-intensive, Buster only shares a few key scenes with other members of the family, and is mainly shown in a conveniently separate story line that focuses on his army career.
