On occasion, we'll see one of these characters get ADayInTheLimelight and they'll become TheProtagonist for an episode. This often makes the ''real'' cast the HeroOfAnotherStory for the episode, as they'll be off on their own adventures in the meantime.

* Themistocles from ''Film/ThreeHundredRiseOfAnEmpire'' could be considered a HeroOfAnotherStory for the [[Film/ThreeHundred original film]], as, historically speaking, he was defending the waters near Thermopylae while Leonidas led the ground defense. Likewise, Leonidas is mentioned in passing when Themistocles visits Sparta (the infamous "[[MemeticMutation This! Is! Sparta!]]" scene having taken place just before he got there, and is away consulting the oracle when Themistocles shows up.

** [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]] tended to suggest that the other ''Constitution''-class starships generally did have their own 'only ship in the sector' and 'stumbled upon a dangerous mystery while exploring' incidents off-screen whenever other ''Constitution''-class starships showed up. No specific individual served the HeroOfAnotherStory role well, though.

** FromACertainPointOfView, ''you'' are the HeroOfAnotherStory, assuming that the main quest line and the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion are completed by the same players. [[spoiler: Martin Septim is remembered as the hero who cast Mehrunes Dagon out of the Mundus, but you end up becoming a Daedric Prince yourself in a questline completely unrelated to Martin.]]

* The '''Portal''' series: In ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' there are only two characters: Chell and [=GLaDOS=]. In VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} we are introduced to Wheatley, and we get to know more about Cave Johnson, founder of Aperture Science, and his assistant, Caroline. But there is another character that is not only common to both games, but is also ''crucial'' to the story, as in without his actions, there would be no story at all; and yet we never get to see him - but we find references to him and his work everywhere: [[MysteriousProtector "The Ratman"]]. Doug Rattman was a scientist working in the [=GLaDOS=] project, and became the only survivor after [=GLaDOS=] gassed everyone with Neurotoxins. He then managed to stay alive for several years, living in hiding, moving through the facilities using secret passages; and eventually succeeded in starting the events that lead to Chell facing [=GLaDOS=], and all that happens afterwards. In fact, he is so much a HeroOfAnotherStory that he actually ''does'' have [[http://www.thinkwithportals.com/comic/#26 his own story]]

* On the cast page of ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'', Kaitlyn is described as "the central character in another strip". She literally became the HeroOfAnotherStory later, with the introduction of the Precocious spinoff strip, [[http://www.precociouscomic.com/archive/copperroad/index.html Copper Road]].

* In the WhateleyUniverse, there are several. Lady Astarte, the greatest superheroine of the era, is hovering around in the background, because she's the headmistress of the SuperheroSchool the main characters go to. At Halloween, when Deathlist attacks, she takes him on single-handed and wins. There are lots of references to former battles she has fought and former superheroes she has known, because she has been superheroing since World War II. Skyhawk, one of the main superheroes of Boston, probably counts as well.

* Luna Inverse, Lina's older sister in ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''. One reason she's never shown in anything but flashbacks or cameos is she would easily solve all the problems the heroes face alone.

* Acting Chief Engineer Jacob Temple would have made a good protagonist for a ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'' DLC. The only real difference between him and Silent Protagonist Isaac Clarke is that Isaac's girlfriend was in Medical - Jacob's was in hydroponics. Through the game, you find logs on the same path as Isaac's, with Temple literally doing all the things that Isaac does, only failing. But, hey, [[spoiler: at least he found his girlfriend alive]].

** Not to mention fedorafreak, who only ever appears on a {{Twitter}} {{expy}} for three frames, and provides regular updates about, respectively, his choice of hats, his house burning down, TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, his own journey through another session of Sburb and, finally, his death, possibly on a Quest Bed (which would allow his [[CameBackStrong ascension to God Tier]]). The forums make him a MemeticBadass.

* This happens roughly [[OnceAnEpisode once per game]] in the ''SummonNight: Swordcraft Story'' series. Particulary obvious in the second, where a PowerTrio seeking out a MacGuffin of some sort briefly cross paths with you and team up to the fight the local baddie, then continue their quest. That would make you this in relation to them, for that matter.

* Inspector Zenigata of the '''Franchise/LupinIII'' series stars in his own live-action dramas where he gets ensnared into several dangerous cases that were made to look like Lupin was the culprit. Zenigata, being the premier Lupin expert, sets out to prove his nemesis was being framed and it shows that when he's not on Lupin's trail, Zenigata really is the most accomplished detective on the force.
