* ProductPlacement is often the result of ExecutiveMeddling, while some are done with the agreement of the filmmakers. Whatever reason, this trope brings more money to the production.

Added DiffLines:
* AdaptationalModesty is practically mandatory in movie adaptations that strive to reach a general audience. Even if an actor is comfortable with appearing naked onscreen, extended scenes of full-frontal nudity pretty much ''guarantee'' a film an "R" rating, which makes a film much harder to market. Especially mandatory if a character is underage; while putting naked underaged characters in a novel or comic book might fly, it most definitely ''doesn't'' in a movie or television series, where ([[DawsonCasting with a few exceptions]]) they have to be played by real underaged actors.

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating. It's presumed that any work that ''can'' be seen without moral qualms by anyone, regardless of age, is not worth seeing by adults ("children will watch ''[[ViewersAreMorons anything]]''"). Since this would cut into profits by scaring off parts of the potential audience, it needs to be avoided.

* SecondaryCharacterTitle notably shows up in many of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's plays that deal with historical monarchs and rulers. Because of the Elizabethan era's rigid social hierarchy, characters of higher social status had to set themselves apart from the commoners by speaking in verse, and plays always had to be named for the character of the highest social ranking--even if they weren't actually the protagonist. Examples include ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'' (where the protagonist is Brutus), ''Theatre/{{Cymbeline}}'' (where the protagonist is Cymbeline's daughter Imogen), ''Theatre/HenryIV'' (where the protagonist is the young Prince Hal), and ''Theatre/HenryVI'' (which is about the feuding English nobility in the Wars of the Roses). [[note]] The only reason his most famous tragedy is called ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' instead of ''Claudius'' is because Claudius isn't the ''legitimate'' King of Denmark.[[/note]]

* In the ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe, [[OldMaster Yoda]] remains an example of InexplicablyAwesome because Creator/GeorgeLucas has explicitly forbade ExpandedUniverse writers from exploring his backstory, or revealing anything major about his (still unnamed) species.

Line ignores that Tropes Are Tools.
* ProductPlacement is most often the result of ExecutiveMeddling, and therefore falls into this trope. Some works (e.g. ''Series/ThirtyRock'') try to lampshade/make fun of it; others (like ''Series/MadMen'') work it in elegantly; but in most it just sits there.
