* In keeping with the "angsty characters are more interesting" sentiment common to this trope, Wolverine has wandered off on his own in every incarnation of the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} for various reasons - seeking answers to his past, in pursuit of the villain du jour or just because he's had a fight with one of the other X-Men.

* Liara T'Soni of the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series got a lot of this, starting with the Lair of The Shadowbroker DLC, in which she plays a central role. This carried over into the third game, in which she is promoted to TheLancer and have more cut-scenes and are required to acompine you to more missions then any other companion. Aria T'Loak is given this treatment in the Omega DLC, and, while [[DownplayedTrope less evident]], Urdnot Wrex is this to the Citadel DLC.

* Starting with ''Literature/TheNewProphecy'', each book of ''Literature/WarriorCats'' shifts the focus to a different one of the main characters. In fact, in ''Literature/OmenOfTheStars'', the cat on the cover of each book is the focal character for it (except for ''Sign of the Moon'' where the focal character is Jayfeather, not the [[FanNickname covercat]] Stoneteller).

* ''Series/{{SonsOfAnarchy}} used to do this, focusing on minor members of the club, the police force, and members of rival gangs. In recent episodes it has focused entirely on the relationship between Jax and Tara and how the club's actions affect Jax. The phrase 'Jax will get to the bottom of this' has become a running joke amongst fans.
* ''Series/{{ArrestedDevelopment}} did this explicitly in S4. Each episode of the season exclusively followed a specific member of the household over the same time period.

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, after the TimeSkip, Trafalgar Law--who wasn't even introduced to the story until almost 500 chapters in--goes from simply being one of Luffy's rivals (a fellow member of the "Eleven Supernovas" alongside Luffy and Zoro) to becoming a ''massively'' important character who forms a formal alliance with Luffy and whose plans and actions are the catalyst for the Dressrosa arc (currently the longest arc in the series by far). Like Ace before him, Law is pretty much the co-main character of said arc alongside Luffy (at the ''very'' least, the {{Deuteragonist}}), in which he gets a very sympathetic backstory in a flashback, is revealed to have a highly sought-after Devil Fruit power, receives more screentime than most of the Straw Hats, and practically becomes an [[HonoraryTrueCompanion honorary Straw Hat himself]].

* Used often in ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'', which has a larger roster of main characters (seven for now) than any of PlatypusComix's other flagship comics.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' has several. "The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill," an episode detailing how Comicbook/TheMightyThor met ComicBook/BetaRayBill, went so far as to replace the intro's picture of the Avengers with a picture of Thor.
