* Also deconstructed in the Korean horror film ''White: The Melody of the Curse''. The protagonists, all part of the same K-Pop group, begin competing against each other to be the main member when their popularity peaks. Cue three of the four girls becoming insanely jealous of each other (the fourth, who serves as the TeamMom, simply tries to control the younger three). It goes FromBadToWorse, in no small part because of the vengeful spirit tied to the titular song.

* 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, 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.

* The leaders of the Soviet Union. Most people can name Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev and Gorbachev; but just how few can name all eight? [[note]]The other three were Georgy Malenkov, wedged between Stalin and Khrushchev; Yuri Andropov, who followed Brezhnev; and Konstantin Chernenko, who replaced Andropov and preceded Gorbachev. This is primarily due to the fact that all three men led for a very short time[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* Israel's prime ministers were David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, Ariel Sharon, and Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu. Apparently, nobody outside Israel has ever heard of Moshe Sharett, Levi Eshkol, Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir, Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak, and Ehud Olmert. And how many people even know they have presidents, and that they're ''not'' the prime ministers? (Peres was the only person to serve in both offices).

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': Let's face it. Most people who're not into the game only know Pikachu.

* Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto ''is'' Creator/{{Nintendo}} to most people, even when the company has enlisted other talented producers like [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Eiji Aonuma]], [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Masahiro]] [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Sakurai]], and [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Katsuya Eguchi]]. Takashi Tezuka has about the same role as Miyamoto, but tends to be ignored (he directed ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' and the ''Series/TwinPeaks'' influence in that game was his idea, and he produced the original ''Animal Crossing'' before Eguchi was promoted from director to producer).

Also of note is Yoshiaki Koizumi, a major force behind ''Mario'' and ''Zelda'' titles, Satoshi Tajiri, the mastermind behind ''Pokemon'', and Gunpei Yokoi, the guy who turned the company into what it is today.

* This is also a problem with Simulation game companies. When people think ''Maxis'', people think ''Will Wright''. And when people think the ''Tycoon'' series of games, they think 'Chris Sawyer''. Likewise, 4X games that are made by ''Sid Meier'' sells better than those without his name on it.

** The American fanbase [[MemeticBadass can hardly forget about Reggie]]. He is also well known enough in PAL regions to appear in the European ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'' Nintendo Direct alongside Nintendo of Europe's president, even though Reggie has no control over the European branch.
