* Character focus on ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} is divided between pretty much everybody, but special efforts have been made to give attention to more obscure characters in later seasons. Examples include D.W.'s best friend Emily, Tough Customer Rattles, and Maria, a girl in Mr. Ratburn's class who was relatively well-known among longtime fans of the show, but hadn't spoken before season nineteen.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/TerraIgnota'' series is mainly narrated by Mycroft Canner, who chronicles the events of the series, with two exceptions:
** Sniper narrates the first chapter of book two, ''Seven Surrenders''. ''The Will to Battle'' reveals this to have been part of a deal between [[spoiler:J.E.D.D. Mason]] and Sniper to convince Sniper to [[spoiler:return Mycroft to J.E.D.D. Mason]]. The chapter details, from Sniper's point of view, what happened to it during it's disappearance at the end of book one.
** The last chapter of the third book, ''The Will to Battle'', is written by the Servicer whom Mycroft names Outis earlier in the book, after [[spoiler:Mycroft himself is presumed to have died]]. In a CallBack to the first book, where Mycroft claims the narrator should introduce himself to the reader by stating his name, background and qualifications but never reveals the later two, Outis reveals both his backstory and qualifications at length but refuses to name himself, then reveals that he's been training to become [[spoiler:the next Anonymous]] behind the scenes. It would seem like Outis will be the chronicler from now on but [[spoiler: Mycroft chimes in with a short note that he's still alive and will return after this chapter]].

* ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' is a retelling of ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' that gives the main focus to Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and G(a)linda, the Good Witch. Nearly every major Ozian character from the film shows up - Elphaba's sister Nessarose, who becomes the Wicked Witch of the East, the Wizard of Oz himself, [[spoiler:Boq]]/the Tin Man, and [[spoiler:Fiyero]]/the Scarecrow. The two most famous characters - Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion - never quite make it onstage (although the Lion can be heard in "March of the Witch Hunters") for fear that [[SpotlightStealingSquad they're simply too iconic and would divert attention]] away from Elphaba and Galinda.

* ''Mr. Toad's Wild Ride'' at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] is a whole ride retelling the story of Mr. Toad, who couldn't even get a whole ''film'' to himself (he shared a double feature with Ichabod Crane).

* ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', because even if every episode requires Ultraman to save the day in the end, it's still possible to give focus to the hero's friends and allies.
** ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'':
*** "Don't Shoot, Arashi!" for [[TheBigGuy Arashi]] (in which his trigger-happy attitude proves to be his downfall against Zaragas, a {{kaiju}} with an AdaptiveAbility)
*** "Pearl Oyster Defense" for [[TheChick Fuji]] (in which she has a lot more participation than usual in this week's monster hunt)
*** "The Small Hero" for [[TheSmartGuy Ide]] (where he begins to feel he is useless because Ultraman always defeats the monsters for Science Patrol)
*** "Human Specimens 5 and 6" for [[TheCaptain Captain Muramatsu]] (where much of the episode sees him trying to bust aliens invading a mountain lab by himself)
*** "The Coast Guard Command" for [[TagalongKid Hoshino]] (which is about him and his friends running into some diamond smugglers while Science Patrol hunts the kaiju Gesura in the subplot).
** ''Series/UltraSeven'':

*** [[TheSmartGuy Horii]] has "Requiem to Darkness", "A Fog is Coming!", and "Goodbye to Darkness" (all of which develop on his love life)

** ''Series/UltramanMebius'':

*** [[TheSmartGuy Teppei]] has "One Path" (in which the fact that he hasn't told his parents yet about his new job at GUYS causes trouble) and "Lady of the Blue Flame" (where is unsure if he can save the life of a girl he likes).
*** [[TheLancer Ryu]] has "Formation of Our Vows" (where he is troubled by how ex-mentor Serizawa/Ultraman Hikari seems to be no longer interested in him) and "The Resurrection of Yapool" (where the evil Yapool takes over his body to try break his friendship with Mirai).
*** [[FriendlyRival Ultraman Hikari]] has "Azure Waves of Light and Shadow" (in which his past as AntiHero Hunter Knight Tsurugi comes back to haunt him).
*** [[TheCaptain Captain Sakomizu]] has "A Visit from an Old Friend" (which reveals a lot more about his experiences with Ultras to spoiler levels).
