* Deconstructed in ''The Runaways'' (based on fact too). Cherie Curie is pushed as the Face of The Runaways and the other members end up resenting this. Cherie also suffers an emotional breakdown because of all the pressures of being the famous one (especially since she's only sixteen) and that's why she chooses to leave the band. As Joan Jett puts it...

* NBANBA: The standout player, though more often than not it's a duo (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar\Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal\Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade\Shaquille O'Neal) or there's always an equally famous wingman (i.e. Scottie Pippen for Usefulnotes/MichaelJordan)

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': Let's face it. Most people who're not into the game only know Pikachu and Meowth. ''Maybe'' you'll get Charizard, Squirtle, Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, and Lucario (all aside from Meowth having been playable in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.

* The Kardashians? Kim's the one that everyone knows. After that comes the other Kardashian sisters, then the Jenner sisters, then the parents, and finally the sons. As of 2015, Kendall and Kylie have surged ahead of Kourtney and Khloe in fame (thanks to the millennial generation), but are nowhere close to dethroning Kim. Also, as of 2014, you can throw Kim's husband Music/KanyeWest into the mix. And Bruce's stock has certainly risen greatly now that he became Caitlyn.

* On paper, L Nomura is the leader of Music/MarginalNumber4, but it's Atom Kirihara that's used as the face of the group out of universe. The [[Anime/MarginalNumber4 anime]] tackles why this is the case.

* Figures heavily in "The Band's Tale" from the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse anthology ''Literature/TalesFromJabbasPalace'', tells the story of the Max Rebo Band, who were seen playing for Jabba in ''ReturnOfTheJedi''. It turns out that the manipulative singer Sy Snootles took control of the group after it's original leader was killed in a shootout, but she put the cheerful, friendly and easily manipulated keyboardist Max Rebo at the front of the group with the intent of making herself TheManBehindTheMan. [[spoiler: This backfires immensely, as Jabba's agent approaches ''Rebo'', who ends up getting the band trapped in an exclusive contract at Jabba's palace in return for a lifetime supply of free food]].

* The Trump family? Obviously Donald, the de facto head of the family and 45th President of the United States is the first to come to mind. His daughter Ivanka is a runner-up though, due to being in the spotlight both as a socialite (formerly) and and as a political adviser to Donald (currently). Most can't name the numerous wives he had (except Melania, his current wife), his four other kids, his grandkids, and his other relatives. Another member that's well-known is someone who isn't even a bloodline relative, Jared Kushner (Ivanka's husband).

Also, Rick Perry and Ben Carson, although they're less known for their roles in the Trump cabinet than as former Presidential candidates.
