Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', Burr is kind of a quasi-example. He's clearly not the main protagonist, and the majority of the songs concern events that either don't feature him or aren't hugely relevant to him personally, some of which he does provide narration for (such as "Say No To This"), but he ''is'' the second most important character (if arguably tied with Eliza), and by the end of the musical his narration becomes much less peripheral and much more personal. Compare the opening to "What'd I Miss", in which he otherwise doesn't appear:
-->How does the bastard, orphan, immigrant, decorated war vet, unite the colonies through more debt? Fight the other founding fathers 'til he has to forfeit, have it all, lose it all, you ready for more yet?
** ...to the opening for "Your Obedient Servant", set to the same melody:
-->How does Hamilton, an arrogant, immigrant, orphan, bastard, whore's son somehow endorse Thomas Jefferson, his enemy, a man he's despised since the beginning, just to keep ''me'' from winning?
