* 1980s trio S-K-O (Schuyler, Knoblock, and Overstreet) lost Paul Overstreet after their first album, which included the #1 hit "Baby's got a New Baby" (1986), and became S-K-B when Craig Bickhardt replaced him. Overstreet went on to become a semi-successful solo artist, with nearly twice as many Top 10 hits as S-K-O did (including the #1 "Daddy's Come Around" and a guest spot with Paul Davis on Tanya Tucker's 1987 chart-topper "I Won't Take Less Than Your Love", which he also wrote). After his career fizzled out, Overstreet returned to songwriting, but occasionally dabbled in Christian music as well. Two of his sons have gained some fame as well: Chord Overstreet is a ''Series/{{Glee}}'' cast member, and Nash is a member of pop group Hot Chelle Rae.

** There's the Comicbook/XMen, and then there's {{Wolverine|Publicity}}. This is an inversion as Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} started off as a solo character in the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk and most of the major lifting into making him a more fleshed out character happened in the X books; without that he may have very well ended up on the scrapheap. Even with the X-Men he was initially at risk of such a fate, as it was decided that he and Thunderbird were [[BloodKnight too similar in personality]] and one would be killed off in their second issue as a team. Wolverine was saved from the chopping block because his powers were deemed more interesting and he wasn't [[CaptainEthnic an ethnic stereotype]].

* Many view his Adam Carolla's comedic partner (and radio buddy from KROQ in LA) Jimmy Kimmel as this, as he's gone on to much bigger things than Adam. However, Adam is quite proud of his best friend's success, often remarking he got there with talent and hard work, and he's quite content doing his own thing.

* Creator/BenAffleck and Creator/MattDamon were considered this for a while. Used to be that the two of them appeared together in everything - then, each going solo, Matt Damon got the ''Film/OceansEleven'' and ''[[Film/TheBourneSeries Bourne]]'' series. Affleck landed lead roles in a number of major films, but his career never reached quite the height of Damon's. However, he went a different route by directing the critically acclaimed movies ''Literature/GoneBabyGone'', ''Film/TheTown'', and ''Film/{{Argo}}''. And then Affleck went in completely the opposite directly by playing Franchise/{{Batman}} in the [[CriticalDissonance far from critically acclaimed]] ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''.
* This gets spoofed in ''Film/MusicAndLyrics'', with Hugh Grant's character being the [[LesserStar Andrew Ridgeley]] of the Wham!-like band.
* An interesting case for the main ladies of ''Film/MeanGirls''. After the movie, Creator/LindsayLohan looked like she was poised for superstardom...but things did not turn out that way and her film roles since have not been able to achieve the same success. The other ladies however did well for themselves. Creator/LaceyChabert has been in consistent employment with voice acting and TV-movies, and Creator/RachelMcAdams and Creator/AmandaSeyfried have become two of the most successful actresses of the decade. Fame-wise, Lohan is still far ahead of any of the others, so Chabert ultimately loses in the end. "And none for Gretchen Wieners, bye!" indeed...

* The original ''Franchise/StarWars'' series is a slightly bitty example, with established names Alec Guinness and Peter Cushing on the opening cast, largely because the backers expected it, and Creator/JamesEarlJones[[labelnote:*]]whose performance in ''A New Hope'' originally went '''uncredited'''[[/labelnote]] as a voice actor. But the rest of the cast were all inexpensive unknowns. Creator/HarrisonFord alone got a leg-up to further major leading roles, most notably as Indiana Jones, and achieved big box-office fame. Everyone else had to contend with [[IAmNotSpock typecasting deadends]] and AdamWesting, or make do with largely unaffected careers (although Creator/MarkHamill eventually launched a highly successful voice acting career most famously voicing ComicBook/TheJoker), or, in the case of Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), return to civilian life as a hospital porter. [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]] lampshaded Ford's success in the ''Film/ANewHope'' parody. "I'm Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon and the only actor whose career isn't destroyed by this movie."
* Out from the ''Film/HarryPotter'' trio, Creator/EmmaWatson seems to be only one who got higher success than the two after working with Creator/SofiaCoppola, Creator/DarrenAronofsky among others. Creator/DanielRadcliffe has a pretty good career in theater and is working in independent films. And Creator/RupertGrint didn't get much success after the franchise ended and several of his movies got panned by critics though like Radcliffe, he ventured to theater instead.
** For the supporting cast (with the exception of the adult actors), Creator/RobertPattinson garnered more success and fame thanks to the Film/{{Twilight}} franchise and is still doing movies. Creator/TomFelton initially has something to start with after the franchise ended and Alfred Enoch (who played Dean Thomas) is one of the lead characters in ''Series/HowToGetAwayWithMurder''. The rest were either focused on modeling or in theatre. Of the unknown adult actors, there were three breakouts: Creator/DavidTennant, Creator/MichelleFairley, and Creator/DomhnallGleeson.

* After ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' ended, Creator/BryanCranston went on to star as Walter White in ''Series/BreakingBad'', a role that he won four Emmy awards for, three of them consecutively, and is now arguably even ''more'' famous for ''Series/BreakingBad'' than ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''. The rest of the cast has faded into obscurity.
** Frankie Muniz invoked this on himself by doing the ''Film/AgentCodyBanks'' movies for tens of millions of dollars, then retiring from acting to drive race cars for fun.

* Averted with ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', as three of the show's main cast members struggled to find successful roles after the show ended in 1998 (Jerry Seinfeld himself never seemed that bothered, and is the only one who's avoided series television), a phenomenon which became known as the "Seinfeld curse".
** [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis-Dreyfus]] can be considered ''Seinfeld'''s breakout, as she eventually went on to star in ''Series/TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine'' and ''Series/{{Veep}}''. However, it took her almost a decade to finally find a successful post-''Seinfeld'' role. Michael Richards is nowadays the only one still completely in the show's shadow.

** ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' during its run was one of Nick's most popular live action shows. After it ended in 2013, Music/ArianaGrande embarked on a massively successful music career as pop star, churning out numerous iconic hits in a short time and scoring platinum albums, and has never looked back since. Her meteoric rise has completely eclipsed the show itself, easily becoming the most successful star ever produced by Nick, while the rest of cast (Leon Thomas III, Matt Bennett, Elizabeth Gillies, Avan Jogia, Creator/DaniellaMonet, and, [[{{Irony}} most ironically]], the title star Creator/VictoriaJustice, who the show was meant to be a vehicle for) have long since faded into obscurity.

* Among the ''Series/TheTudors'' cast, Creator/HenryCavill and Creator/NatalieDormer are the most successful due to the former playing Franchise/{{Superman}} for the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse and the latter being in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' and the last two ''Film/TheHungerGames'' movies while the rest are still regulated to TV roles.
* On ''Series/{{Community}}'', Creator/DonaldGlover (Troy) could be considered this. Glover left the show in season 5 to focus on his music and a solo television project, which became the FX show ''Series/{{Atlanta}}''. The show premiered to critical acclaim and was on many "Best on 2016" lists. Additionally, he has appeared in several movies and was cast as young Lando Calrissian in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' Han Solo movies.

[[Series/TheFlash2014 The 2014 series]] sees Vito D'Ambrosio [[RoleReprisal return as Bellow]], albeit as a [[AdaptationalVillany corrupt mayor]] with Murphy not appearing because of Bliff Manard's passing some months before.

* Possibly averted with the original members of the Rob Zombie band. Riggs (guitarist) and Tempesta (drummer) left to form Scum of the Earth in 2003, which did not meet with much commercial success. Blasko (bassist), however, became the bassist for Ozzy Osbourne after leaving Rob Zombie in 2005. And Tempesta would later leave Scum of the Earth and become the drummer for Music/TheCult. As for Riggs, he's still with Scum of the Earth as of 2016, and he ''is'' TheFaceOfTheBand there, but he still got the short end of the stick compared to Blasko, Tempesta and Rob himself.

* Four young women in Mixed Martial Arts formed a stable of sorts called the Four Horsewomen, after the pro wrestling stable the Four Horsemen. Of the four of them, Creator/RondaRousey nearly single-handedly mainstreamed women's MMA and built up an impressive streak of very fast wins.

As for the other two, Jessamyn Duke was known for being pretty and turning out to have a glass jaw that stopped her career in her tracks, and Marina Shafr is known only for being the fourth woman in the Four Horsewomen.

Squirtle and Ivysaur, if they return at all, will have to do so as DLC and not launch characters.

* Curious double example: In the early 1990s, there was a band in Kentucky known as Early Tymz. Its members included brothers Music/JohnMichaelMontgomery and Eddie Montgomery, as well as Troy Gentry. Although Early Tymz was well known in the state, they were all but unknown outside it. John Michael left and began a solo career, having many huge hits between 1992 and 2000. Eddie and Troy founded the duo Montgomery Gentry, which has also racked up a respectable number of hits from 1999 until Gentry's [[AuthorExistenceFailure death in 2017]].

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': Creator/NeilPatrickHarris was already known for starring in ''Series/DoogieHowserMD'', but ''HIMYM'' enhanced his star enough for Harris to host award shows, his memorable role in ''Film/GoneGirl'', his theater career, and just having a high profile in general. Aside from him, Creator/CobieSmulders is the highest profile among the cast thanks to her role as SHIELD agent Maria Hill in the Film/MarvelCinematicUniverse. Jason Segel's career is composed of several romantic comedies while Creator/AlysonHannigan still get roles in the future. Creator/JoshRadnor is the only one who went low after the show ended and focused more on directing and theater.

* Newer Music/CardiB fans might not realize she got her start as a cast member on the RealityShow ''Love & Hip Hop: New York''. A lot of the cast are either artists past their prime or upstarts trying to get in the business; Cardi is the only person to get any further than being a MemeticMutation so far.

* After OneHitWonder 90s rock band Giant broke up, lead singer/guitarist Dann Huff (also a founding member of White Heart) and bassist Mike Brignardello both became session musicians in CountryMusic. Huff started working more as a RecordProducer by 1997, and that has been his bread and butter ever since, thanks to production credits on popular songs by Music/FaithHill, Music/{{Lonestar}}, Music/KeithUrban, and Music/RascalFlatts among others.
