* In ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'', Mahanon and Victoria alternate between this and the protagonist, depending on who the narrative character is at a given moment. Cassandra is arguably the {{tritagonist}}.



* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'': Flynn Ryder. His character arc of [[BeYourself coming to grips with who he is]] somewhat mirrors Rapunzel's, and gives her a more world-weary DeadpanSnarker to bounce off of.

** It's also worth noting that WordOfGod considers [[BigGood Rachel Alucard]] and [[{{Troll Hazama]] to be the de-facto fourth and fifth main characters of the series. The former is ever-present in supporting and (rudely) encouraging the heroes' efforts, and plays a key role in the story herself, while the latter is the vessel for the BigBad, and being the ArchEnemy to a majority of the cast.

'''Deuteragonist'''. The second guy. No, not the {{Sidekick}}, who follows the main character around. Not the SupportingProtagonist, who is the main character yet not the focus of the story. Not the DecoyProtagonist either. The second person the show revolves around.

We can see how their actions drive the plot just as much as those of the protagonist. If there's another example of this trope in play following the previous one, then that character is the '''Tritagonist'''.[[note]]If another follows, they can be called the '''Tetragonist'''. Anything after that and you're in EnsembleCast territory.[[/note]]

* Destro from ''[[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero]]''. Although to be honest, the old LarryHama comics are chock full of deuteragonists and tritagonists. Destro was the villain who wasn't so villainous, who had a code of honor, and who we very often see stories told through his Point-Of-View, so much to the point where we have two views of the evil Cobra organization - first through the eyes of the G.I. Joes, and second through the eyes of Destro, the arms dealer.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': The other three Crystal Gems (Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl) collectively serve as the deuteragonists to Steven's protagonist. His interaction with them and his learning to control his powers forms much of the development of the series. Of the three Crystal Gems, Pearl has received a fair amount of focus due to her strong connection with Steven's mother.
