* Liara T'Soni of the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series got a lot of this, starting with the [[DownloadableContent dlc]] Lair of The Shadowbroker, 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.

* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' has two episodes ("A House Divided" and "The Ghost Walks Again") whose storylines are entirely focused on the Phantom and Jedda. In both episodes, the other Defenders are only onscreen briefly and, in the case of "A House Divided", three of them do not appear at all. ** However, the series does have a number of other episodes which place one (sometimes two) of the Defenders in the spotlight. The first such episode is "A Demon in His Pocket", which focuses on Kshin.

See also ADayInTheLimelight, where it's a side character who takes centre stage, and LockedInARoom or LockedInAFreezer, where it's a relationship. If every member of the team regularly gets a chance to shine, then the writers are employing RotatingArcs. Compare ChangingOfTheGuard, where the shift of attention is more permanent. Contrast NonProtagonistResolver, when the work is screwing with Character Focus (i.e something who's not in focus ends up resolving the conflict).
