* Elise in ''DanVs.'' She's a highly skilled spy who is almost always caught up in her own assignments, and it just so happens that those often cross paths with Dan when he's on whatever his newest tirade is.

* Meanwhile, in ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}'' itself, Vincent's friends and other assorted possible drinking buddies are each going through drama that's led to them experiencing the same nightmare world trials that Vincent starts finding himself in at the start of the game. Most of them need a bit of outside help (i.e. a confidante, namely Vincent) to have the will to get through their struggles, but most of what they go through over the course of the game is offscreen and independent of the central plot.

* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', Gangrel scholar Beckett is only in LA to investigate the rumors of the Ankaran Sarcophagus, and bumps into you on occasion to offer advice. He's up to a ''lot'' in the bigger scheme of the Old [[TheWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness]], though, and indeed he's one of the main heroes of the ''Vampire'' setting.

** Inverted in a Marvel short where we learned what Thor did during the events of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'': [[spoiler: Nothing heroic at all just hanging out in Australia with average sort'of every-day people]].

** In {{Videogame/Fallout3}}, you can find an emergency broadcast in a nearby area stating that a child is sick, and the family is holed up waiting for supplies, having escaped some kind of disaster. When you find this little bunker, you realize it's a radio that has had an emergency message play on loop for an unknown amount of time, however judging by the skeletons in the room it has been at least a century if not two. You never really learn who the family was or how they got there either, and you never learn if they got the help they needed (although it's likely they didn't given they stayed in the bunker).

** {{VideoGame/Fallout4}} has you run into a group of five people: Preston Garvey, Sturges, Mama Murphy, Jun Long, and Marcy Long. The four appear to have been running for a long time, and had a much larger group than the ragtag group of five left at the end. After helping them escape Concord, Preston can tell you about the minutemen, a huge plot regarding betrayal, the collapse of the minutemen, and so forth. Should you check the southern end of Quincy, you can also come across three gunners known as Tessa, Clint, and Baker. Killing them and reading the various terminals explains even more of the tragic events that led up to the five holing up in the museum you saved them from.

* In ''{{Starlancer}}'' the player actually plays this role. Especially in the beginning, the player's team of misfits is largely unknown while established aces like Klaus Steiner are often mentioned on TV. It is not until much later in the game that the player is treated as an equal.

* [[BadassNormal The Spartan Captain]] of ''VideoGame/GodOfWar 2'' manages to get to the island of the Fates and get to the [[ThatOneLevel phoenix puzzle]]. He does this [[TookAShortcut without any sort of godly powers or assistance from them]], and would have gotten further if he didn't [[CurbStompBattle encounter Kratos]] in a dark room. There's also the people who were once all those corpses you see lying around deep inside each of the major locations, and the Argonauts, Perseus, and Icarus are also on their own adventures on the island.
* Captain Marcus Walker in ''{{Freelancer}}'' is the commander of the [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Liberty]] cruiser LNS ''Utah''. Unlike the AntiHero [[PlayerCharacter Trent]], Walker is a straight shooter who takes pride in his service. He even offers to help Trent join the Liberty Navy. After helping to defend the Willard Research Station and a Liberty battleship, Walker disappears for a while, before reappearing to help Trent and the others escape from a Liberty ambush in Zone-21. It's not clear what he did while Trent was out doing his thing, but given his impressive record and his [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]], it was probably something awesome. Then there's Casper Orillion, the man in charge of TheOrder. Actually, there are plenty of characters, including Ozu, Michael King, [[GeorgeTakei Lord Hakkera]], and [[TheAce Diedrich Von Claussen]], who are impressive in their own right.

** Two Diane Duane novels, Dreadnaught and Battlestations are something of a LowerDecksEpisode in regards to the novels. The main characters are younger Expys of the main StarTrek characters. While they do perform acts to further the plot, when they cross paths with Kirk and company, it's clear for every thing the youngsters have done, the senior officers have done 5 or 6.

* ''WebAnimation/RedVsBlue'' is primarily about the soldiers that were assigned to Blood Gulch, but we get an occasional glimpse of other teams stationed elsewhere. Or, as Vic put it in the opening to episode 6 of season 14
-->"Y'know, when most people talk about the Reds and Blues, they're talking about my boys at Blood Gulch. But, lotsa dudes forget that there's a bunch more primary colored commandos all over the galaxy. And they're all idiots."
