** The peculiarities of this trope and of billing placement in general are best illustrated in the ''Good Morning Miss Bliss'' episodes that were repackaged for syndication as ''Saved by the Bell''. In the original episodes, the actors are credited as: "Starring Hayley Mills, Dennis Haskins, Joan Ryan, Max Battimo/Dustin Diamond/Mark-Paul Gosselaar (all on the same title card), Heather Hopper/Lark Voorhies (again on the same title card), and T.K. Carter as Mylo". But in the ''Saved by the Bell'' version, this is changed to "Starring Hayley Mills, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Joan Ryan, Dennis Haskins, Lark Voorhies, Dustin Diamond, Heather Hopper, Max Battimo, and T.K. Carter as Mylo". Mills and Carter retain their [[BookEnds bookending positions]], which was likely contractually mandated; Ryan, curiously, is billed third in both versions of the credits, despite everyone else being moved around (and other than Mills, only Ryan is billed ahead of actors who moved on to ''Saved by the Bell'').

* ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring]]'' pushed this about as far as it would go. "Featuring Creator/SeanBean, With Ian Holm, And Andy Serkis as Gollum." In ''The Two Towers'', its "Featuring Andy Serkis as Goullum". In ''Return of the King'', it's switched around to "Featuring Andy Serkis as Gollum, With Ian Holm, And Sean Bean".

* Parodied in ''Film/TheDiamondArm'': "and '''finally''' starring Yuri Nikulin" (who plays the leading role and has the most screentime of all actors) in the very end of intro, after listing all other actors (including those who only appear in small episodes).

* NolanNorth gets the "And Starring" version for his role as David in ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs''. Likely because he's a major name in video game voice acting, but plays a supporting [[spoiler: villainous]] role toward the end of the game.

* ''Series/CodeBlack'' has an interesting example. The show's original star was Creator/MaggieGrace as Dr. Leanne Rorish, with the Oscar-winning Creator/MarciaGayHarden as new resident Dr. Christa Lorenson. However, Grace dropped out of the project before the pilot was filmed, and Harden stepped into Grace's role[[note]]after which Bonnie Somerville joined the cast to play Christa[[/note]]. As a result, during the first season, Harden takes the top spot in the credits, but Luis Guzmán, who gets the "with", isn't followed by anybody -- presumably because that's where Harden's name was supposed to go. This goes away in the second season, because Rob Lowe joined the cast and got "And" billing to finish up the credits.
