Generally, it's used to describe a side character making up part of the Ensemble, either a non-lead secondary character or a mere FlatCharacter, who can sometimes become [[PopularityPower unexpectedly popular]] with the fandom (sometimes, even more than the lead characters) depending on [[PeripheryDemographic who]] and [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff where]] the {{Fandom}} is, as well as what the other characters are like in comparison (for example, the hero is not as popular because they're too much The Everyman). Often, this can happen because the character has very few character traits, allowing fans to imagine this character to have traits that they like. The Ensemble Darkhorse can sometimes be viewed as the character equivalent of a CultClassic.

If the Ensemble Dark Horse ''becomes'' an important character, they're now a BreakoutCharacter. See also AdaptationalBadass, AscendedExtra, MemeticBystander, LowerDeckEpisode, ADayInTheLimelight, OneSceneWonder, and UnpopularPopularCharacter. CreatorsPet is the polar opposite, a character who the writer grows fond of but the fans do not. An antagonist who becomes popular despite the author's intentions is DracoInLeatherPants an example of MisaimedFandom. The natural extension of this is the SpotlightStealingSquad. ''Major'' characters who end up being popular fall under FaceOfTheBand, whether they're the true lead character or a supporting member who ends up overshadowing the lead (a la [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] or [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Stewie Griffin]]).
