** According to WordOfGod, [[TheKingdom Orb]] is ruled by a collective of five prominent families, who between themselves select a chief representative. Over the course of the two TV series and the spinoff manga ''GundamSEEDAstray'' we meet three of the families, the Athha, Seiran, and Sahaku. The other two are non-entities, to the point of not even being ''[[NominalImportance named]]'', even in critical moments such as when their allies in [[TheFederation the Earth Alliance]] start bulldozing Europe with a walking WMD. The Sahaku are a partial example, as their actions have zero impact on the anime, mattering only within the context of ''Astray''.

** Both Militant Arms of the other two Ordos of the Inquisition have slowly become this due to being out of Focus. Deathwatch Marines, while frequently mentioned in the fluff, haven't seen tabletop rules for 3 editions now (although technically you can field them as a normal Space Marine Force taking a lot of Sternguard Veterans) while the Sisters of Battle have been given lip service at best in terms of updates and being mentioned in the fluff, usually being the unlucky sods at the receiving end of whatever daemonic or heretical thing that the actual protagonists have to defeat. Sisters of Battle miniatures are actually so out of date that they're the only army who can still (and must) field an army of metal miniatures (every other army at least had their minis updated to finecast).

** In the same arc, we were introduced to the Cipher Pols, the intelligence arm of the world goverment. There are 8 official CP and the secret mythical CP9. Only the CP9 really contribute to the plot, the others only really there to serve as warm-ups bosses and round out thr setting.

** The Standard Dimension is where the bulk of the main cast comes from, and is the setting of the first season. The Xyz Dimension's LaRestistance play a big role in the plot, as does the Fusion Dimension. The Synchro Dimension is mentioned as an aside by Yuto to show that it exists, and we only meet one person from there: Yugo, who has no scenes in his world and only appears in Standard and Xyz. The Synchro Dimension is the setting of season 2 and gets fleshed out later on, but by then the Xyz Dimension is rarely mentioned, and the only mentions it gets are related to how the Fusion Dimension destroyed Heartland.

* Ustio and Sapin are treated like this in ''VideoGame/AceCombatZero'' to Osea and Yuktobania. Especially strange in Ustio's case, as the player character is at the very least a mercenary hired by their government, and the first third or so of the war takes place there.

* In ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''VideoGame/{{Dune 2000}}'', a third party called House Ordos was introduced just to be a third choice between House Atreides and House Harkonnen. House Ordos never occured nor was mentioned in any of the Dune books or any expanded universe source material.

* The other pirate lords from ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean: At World's End''. Smoke-trails in the background imply a huge battle, but we never get to see any ships but the main characters'.

* Trabia Garden in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' is given off-hand references in Disc 1, but never seen until [[spoiler:after its destruction]]. Though one of the party (Selphie) is a transfer student from Trabia. * In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' there are four major political powers on the Mist continent--Alexandria, Lindblum, Bermecia and Cleyra. The first two factions are the most prominent, with Alexandria as TheEmpire for the first half of the game or so and Lindblum as a safe haven ruled by ReasonableAuthorityFigure Regent Cid. The other two, you arrive at Burmecia to find it already invaded and destroyed by Alexandria, and once you arrive at Cleyra you get to look around the town for about half an hour or so before it too is invaded and wiped off the map. Though Freya is a Burmecian, the kingdoms themselves may as well vanish once you leave them because they're scarcely mentioned again except for the reparation efforts.

* In the ''{{Suikoden}}'' series, there are quite a few countries that seem to be Hufflepuff House, generally the homeland of foreign characters. Subverted in that they tend to become the primary setting of later games while what used to be TheFederation and TheEmpire become Hufflepuff Houses. * Ustio and Sapin are treated like this in ''AceCombatZero'' to Osea and Yuktobania.

* The Land of Literature/{{Oz}} is divided into four nations: Munchkin Land, Winkie Land, Quadling Land and Gillikin Land. For anyone who hasn't read the books, ''all'' the last three would be Hufflepuff House, but even the most avid readers would be hard-pressed to remember anything about the Gillikins.

* At the beginning of ''TheRiftwarCycle'', pretty much anyplace outside of the Kingdom is treated in this manner, mentioned periodically to add a little color to the tale but not having any significant impact. This series is very long, however, and by now almost every HufflepuffHouse kingdom and empire on (and several beyond) Midkemia has been featured in at least one full book in which it is showcased as the center of events.

* ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' has its [[TheFairFolks Fairies]] divided in seven ([[SixthRanger later revealed to be eight]]) families: [[OurElvesAreBetter Elves]], [[OurGnomesAreWeirder Gnomes]], [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarves]], [[OurCentaursAreDifferent Centaurs]], Sprites, [[CuteIsEvil Pixies]], [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Goblins]] and [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]]. Elves, Dwarves and Centaurs all have members of their species as main characters, all get more or less fleshed out as a result; the most recurring villain is a Pixie, and Demons get an entire book dedicated to them. Sprites and Gnomes, on the other hands, only get very vague characteristics (Sprites have wings and Gnomes tend to be fat; that's it) and are overall irrelevant to the plot.

** In The End Times GrandFinale for the setting all of the human nations but Bretonnia and the Empire were overrun by either Skaven, Chaos Warriors, or Orks in the prologue and then forgotten. Even Brettonia was completely ignored except for what a few forces operating in the Empire were doing after the first part of book 1.
