* Brian O'Conner serves as this to Dominic "Dom" Toretto in ''TheFastAndTheFurious'' films beginning with the fourth installment; an inverse of their roles in the original movie where Brian was clearly the protagonist and Dom was the deuteragonist. Luke Hobbs serves as the tritagonist to the two of them in films five and six. The second and third movies change things up a little, since Dom is not in ''2 Fast 2 Furious'' and Brian is not in ''Tokyo Drift'' (Dom only briefly appears). In the second, Roman Pearce is the deuteragonist to Brian while in the third film either Neela or Han serves as the deuteragonist to protagonist Sean Boswell.

* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', Junpei is the protagonist and Akane/June is the deuteragonist. [[spoiler:This is subverted in the True Ending, where it's revealed that the positions were reversed the entire time - you have been playing as 12-year old Akane, who is viewing the Second Nonary Game through Junpei's eyes in order to survive the First Nonary Game.]] In its sequel, ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'', Sigma is the protagonist and Phi is the deuteragonist. [[spoiler:In Phi's ending, Junpei Tenmyouji is promoted to tritagonist and his romance subplot with Akane is finally resolved (although not on a happy note).]] The third game, ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', is a bit more complicated in this regard. Carlos, Diana, and Q/[[spoiler:Sean]] are the game's protagonists. Sigma is clearly the deuteragonist of D-Team, since his relationship with Diana is the centerpiece of D-Team's storyline and Phi has a tendency to end up dead when they do anything important. In Q-Team, Eric eventually becomes the deuteragonist after Mira dies in the timeline leading to the big reveal of Zero's true identity. In C-Team, neither Junpei nor Akane conclusively take the deuteragonist slot since most of Carlos' major contributions to the plot are done either on his own or together with both of them.

** Book 3: Tenzin once again takes the reigns as the Deuteragonist and shares this position with Jinora. The former becomes [[spoiler: The BigGood and {{Leader}} of the newly rebirthed airnation]] while the latter gets her own RomanceArc with Kai, [[spoiler: helps take down the BigBad of the season and becomes the youngest Airbending master in history]]. Zaheer serves as the villainous Tritagonist of the season, actively hunting down Korra and co, [[spoiler: killing the Earth Queen and almost killing Korra]]. Finally we have Suyin Beiforg and Kai, the former who serves as a lot of the personal drama between her and Lin while the latter serves as Jinora's love interest [[spoiler: and is instrumental in tracking down the Red Lotus]].
** Book 4: We have [[BigBad Kuvira]] who serves as a villainous Deuteragonist (since her motivations, goals and backstory ultimately moves the entire plot). Asami and Bolin both serve as the Tritagonists since the former has a high number of subplots this season ([[spoiler: and ultimately becomes Korra's final love interest]]) while the latter initially [[spoiler: works for Kuvira before realizing she is a dictator and helping to defeat her]]. Finally we have Mako and Prince Wu serving as Tetratagonist since the latter is the rightful Earth King and the formers becomes his bodyguard.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': The show is primarily about Anakin and his slow slipping towards TheDarkSide. Obi-Wan and Ahsoka are the deuteragonists, with both of them having roughly equal screentime, and entire arcs revolving around them. Finally there're Ventress and Fives as a tritagonists, who have rather complex and rounded arcs built around their CharacterDevelopment, despite being relatively minor characters.

* [[RobotGirl Aigis]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' is notable because she's introduced into the story about a quarter of the way in, and only becomes really important by the last four months of the game, yet she's as central to the story as the Main Character, after it's revealed that she [[spoiler: Sealed Death inside him, creating the personality of Ryoji/Pharos]], and her arc about [[BecomeARealBoy starting to feel emotions and becoming more "human"]] really gets going. This is taken to its logical extent by having her be the protagonist of the PlayableEpilogue included in the UpdatedRerelease, as well has playing a central role in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena''.
* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'', this depends on the story mode. In Lyn's Tale, [[PlayerCharacter the tactician]] is the deuteragonist, with Kent and Sain as the tritangonists. For main story (Eliwood's Tale), Hector serves as the deuteragonist, with Lyn as the tritagonist, while in [[AnotherSideAnotherStory Hector's Tale]] Eliwood is the deuteragonist instead.
* In ''Videogame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', [[CrutchCharacter Seth]] is the deuteragonist for the early portion of the game, but after Eirika and Ephraim reunite, whichever sibling is not chosen as the protagonist becomes the deuteragonist.
* For ''Videogame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance'', Princess Elincia is the deuteragonist to Ike's protagonist. Its sequel, ''Radiant Dawn'', however, has the player taking on different armies in different parts of the game, meaning who the deuteragonist is depends on what part of the game one is in:
** Part 1: Sothe is the deuteragonist to Micaiah's protagonist.
** Part 2: Geoffrey and Lucia are the deuteragonists to Elincia's protagonist.
** Part 3: Ranulf is the deuteragonist to Ike's protagonist.
** Part 4: While the army is split for most of this part, by the end, and arguably for the game as a whole, Micaiah is the deuteragonist to Ike's protagonist.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has the Avatar and Marth ([[spoiler: Actually Chrom's daughter from the future, Lucina]]), whose roles in the game are equally important as Chrom's, despite the fact that they aren't given as much focus.

** Rise Kujikawa is this in ''VideoGame/Persona4DancingAllNight'', since she's the leader of the designated B-Team, and the reason the rest of the Investigation Team is at a music festival to begin with. Her friend/rival Kanami Mashita is the tritagonist, with a major portion of the game revolving around her own adventures. Fittingly, it's [[spoiler:a three-way performance between protagonist Yu Narukami, Rise, and Kanami which defeats the final boss]].
