* Karl Pilkington, from ''The Ricky Gervais Show'', for a real life example. Originally the show was just a vessel for Ricky Gervais and his partner in crime Stephen Merchant. Then they discovered the machinations of their producer's mind and the entire thing changed gear. Karl Pilkington quickly became the focus of the show, and his thoughts (and mad stories) have since been compiled into books, and even a TV series.

*** Said film also promoted Roo to a SupportingProtagonist, with later Pooh movies and TV series increasingly pushing him and his mother Kanga as part of the main cast, having made only sporadic minor appearances beforehand. Similar to Tigger, this eventually led to ''Pooh's Heffalump Movie'' where Roo is the lead character.

* Of the ''Franchise/{{Danganronpa}}'' cast, the one character that everyone loves to talk about is Nagito Komaeda from ''VideoGame/SuperDanganRonpa2''. Part of the main cast of that game, he quickly started to endear himself to fans of the series for his incredibly fluctuating luck, his infuriating nature, and his genuinely interesting backstory and personality. He quickly came to be one of the most marketable characters of the game, getting two {{Image Song}}s, showing up in ''VideoGame/UltraDespairGirls'' as a side character, and getting his own spinoff OVA bundled up with ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3''. Ironically, his presence ''[[DemotedToExtra decreased]]'' overall where he should have been most prominent-- the backstory for the 77th graduating class of Hope's Peak.

* The main character of ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}} is actually Sam Starfall. The UsefulNotes/FurryFandom guaranteed that UpliftedAnimal Florence Ambrose gained a far higher profile.

* Music/TheBeatles: Why George, of course! During the early years, he only wrote two songs per track. In addition, he was overshadowed by songwriters John and Paul, and clowning Ringo. Eventually, his songwriting skills benefited him the popularity in the band.
