* Both Ironhide and Arcee were actually given this treatment in the Japanese opening for ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''. Ironically, according to the [=AllSpark=] Almanac, Ironhide ''was'' intended [[AscendedExtra to become a main character]] in the fourth season before the show was cancelled at three.

** After many fan and professional reviewers reacted to the films along the lines of "Wonder Woman's brief appearance is the only good thing about it", the British posters for the DVD and online release of the film went so far as to feature Wonder Woman front and centre, with Superman and Batman behind her in "sidekick" position.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Film/Manhunter}}'' was broadcast on TV immediately after the phenomenal success of ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' but the title was changed to ''Red Dragon: The Pursuit of Hannibal Lector''. Of course, anyone who saw the movie in 1986 or read the book would realize that Lector (played by Brian Cox) had about eight minutes of screen time and being that the story is set prior to ''Silence of the Lambs'', Lector is still behind bars for the entire film. The character being pursued was a serial killer called The Tooth Fairy [[spoiler: real name is Francis Dolarhyde]]. Lector's influence is marginal and is mostly part of the main character's backstory. The name change and subtitle was just an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the recent 1991 blockbuster by broadcasting a little remembered film that was based on the previous book in the series.

May be a victim of the SpotlightStealingSquad, and expect him to become an EnsembleDarkhorse. Another possibility is that the extra is a DecoyProtagonist.

DecoyProtagonist. Some creators will even [[TropesAreTools use this trope intentionally]] to make a DecoyProtagonist twist more shocking.

** Starting with Dennis Miller in TheEighties it's been traditional for a ''Weekend Update'' anchor to only appear in other sketches sparingly despite being credited as a full cast member.

** Starting with Dennis Miller in TheEighties it's been traditional for a ''Weekend Update'' anchor to only appear in other sketches sparingly despite being credited as a full cast member. Norm Macdonald, Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler and Cecily Strong did appear prominently in sketches, as did Michael Che once Jay Pharaoh left the show, but with the exception of Macdonald, all of them were co-anchors. Their anchoring partners (Tina Fey, Seth Meyers and Colin Jost) rarely if ever appeared in sketches.
** Seth Meyers did appear in sketches prior to taking the anchor job.

* Promotional art for ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' heavily features Jedi Master Atris, portraying her as a kind of light side counterpart to Darth Nihilus. However, while she is important to the game's backstory, her involvement in the actual game is much smaller than it should have been; she was originally supposed to be a party member and, in an alternate ending, [[spoiler:replace [[EvilMentor Kreia]] as the BigBad]], but, like many other features, it was cut short by [[ExecutiveMeddling rushed development]].

** The same goes for Nihilus, who was also featured prominently in advertisements but had a diminished role in the actual game. Doubles as CoversAlwaysLie, thanks to a piece of promotional art which showed Atris and Nihilus in a lightsaber duel. [[spoiler: They're never in the same place at the same time]].



* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'': Jedi Master Atris and Sith Lord Darth Nihilus were both featured prominently in advertisements for the game, with some promotional images depicting them locked in a lightsaber duel. Neither features particularly prominently in the game - with characters like Kreia, Atton, Bao-Dur and G0-T0 all appearing more than they do - though both are undoubtedly important to the plot. Doubles as CoversAlwaysLie, thanks to a piece of promotional art which showed the two characters in a lightsaber duel. [[spoiler: They're never even in the same place at the same time]].

* Kaya Scodelario as teenage Eve in ''Film/{{Moon}}'' receives top billing despite having only a minute or two of screen time. To a lesser extent, Dominique [=McElligott=] who plays Tess is only seen in a handful of flashbacks and videos. Justified as the only actors who have any significant screen time are Creator/SamRockwell and the voice of Creator/KevinSpacey.
