* ''TheLandBeforeTime'' has built up a number of secondary characters over the sequels, one of the most popular being Ali, a girl who is the same species of dinosaur as Littlefoot. However, despite her popularity, she has not shown up more than twice and when a guest character was elevated to main character for the TV show, Chomper was picked instead. Admittedly he was popular in his own right, but the likelihood that the writers did not want two characters of the same species in the main group was probably a factor.

* According to the writers, this is one of the reasons Comicbook/TheWasp had her role cut from ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' (in addition to other factors like her actress being pregnant and Marvel not wanting her debut to be overshadowed by Comicbook/BlackPanther and Comicbook/SpiderMan). It was felt that she'd make Comicbook/AntMan seem kind of redundant, since she can do everything Ant-Man does ''and'' fly and fire {{Hand Blast}}s.

* ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' enforces the trope in universe. While it's absolutely possible to play several Garou of the same Auspice (class) together without the roles overlapping and even get some synergy out of it, packs with all five Auspices are regarded as more balanced and only a pack with all five can gain Phoenix' favor and become the legendary Silver Pack.

Added DiffLines:

[[AC:Religion]]
* From the [[TheBible Book Of Revelations]], the Four Horsemen were Conquest, War, Famine and Death, in that word. None were explicitly named, however, except Death. In part because Conquest and War overlapped, but also because of the Black Plague, Conquest was replaced with Pestilence.

Added DiffLines:

*** Diana has an unbreakable lasso, which in some versions can be used to compel truth-telling; a bit more than a "whip of truth." (There are also versions in which she is highly fire-resistant, is possibly immortal, has access to perfect regeneration technology, can travel to realms of myth and story, and/or can communicate with birds.)

* [[TropesAreTools Unfortunately]] averted in the old ''{{Superfriends}}'' series, [[http://www.seanbaby.com/superfriends/hawkman.htm as Seanbaby notes]]. Hawkman and Hawkgirl could fly, but so could most of the other heroes on the show (even Flash when the animators were forgetful).

* Back during the SilverAge, Superman and the Flash were equally fast. Modern comics have made the Flash much faster than Superman to balance out Superman having a lots of other superpowers besides just running fast.

* Curiously averted in ''Film/TheAvengers'': Tony Stark describes said team to [[BigBad Loki]] as "your brother the demi-god; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breath-taking anger management issues [and] a couple of master assassins" (Black Widow and Hawkeye). In the comics, Hawkeye is slightly more 'wacky' and wisecracking, but with Iron Man having taken over as the movieverse's brash rascal, Hawkeye has lost that quality, putting him in the same category as "dour government hitman" Black Widow. To compensate, Hawkeye is more of [[TheQuietOne a quiet]] sniper type, although once he's out of Loki's mind control, he's [[DeadpanSnarker making casual jokes]].
