* 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.

* 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).

** The Trump administration team? Obviously it's President Trump again. Other than him (and his family members on the team), the names most people will know are Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of Education Betsy [=DeVos=], Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway, and Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Also, Rick Perry and Ben Carson, although they're less known for their roles in the Trump cabinet than as former Presidential candidates.

** Creator/SatoruIwata, Nintendo's president until passing away in 2015, was also in this territory. The ''WebVideo/NintendoDirect'' program/press releases might have something to do with this (note that in Europe, an entirely different Satoru, Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata, does the Nintendo Directs).

* Thanks to his [[ShamelessSelfPromoter constant efforts at self-promotion]], many people are under the impression that Creator/StanLee singlehandedly created all the [[MarvelComics Marvel superheroes]]. This is even more the case after the latest wave of Marvel movies--after all, Creator/JackKirby is dead and Creator/SteveDitko is [[ReclusiveArtist not exactly up for making cameos in movies.]]
