* ''Literature/TheInfected'' has Team Two, the largest and most active of the super-teams, but not a single POV character among them.

* In UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}, South Australia might as well not exist for the rest of the states, being far from the majority of the population on the east coast, and lacking the massive mining industry of Western Australia. Tasmania isn't much better, but it at least gets some fame for its unique wildlife, particularly the Tasmanian Devil.

* Every Oceanian country except UsefulNotes/{{Australia}} and UsefulNotes/NewZealand.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': There are six Chapter-Houses of Time Lords. Each has unique specialties and colors. However, most Time Lord characters important enough to be named are from House Prydon. The new series takes this [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]], with literally every single on-screen Time Lord wearing Prydonian scarlet and orange. We also see very few non-Time Lord Gallifreyans.

Viewers would be forgiven for thinking that "Time Lord" refers to a species rather than an elite subgroup, who have graduated the Academy.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/WrongTimeForDragons'', of the four Elemental Clans, only Water and Air get a lot of characterization. Fire and Earth are largely left on the sidelines, except when it's necessary for them to lend their powers to the Initiation ritual. Of the numerous [[AnimalMotifs Totem Clans]], only the Cat Clan has a notable part in the story. The other Totem Clans are mostly absent. Partly justified, since the Cat Clan is the most organized and powerful of all Totem Clans, and its leader Loy Iver is [[TheSpymaster The Spymistress]]. Additionally, very few elf characters are present in the book. Dwarves/gnomes tend to be present everywhere.

** Erewhon is fleshed out a little in some spin-off books, but not much is known about their SpaceNavy. They do, however, make an impact in the main story by [[spoiler:leaving TheAlliance and giving all their shiny new tech to the Havenites, when the current Manticore leadership starts treating them like crap]].

* The other Greek soldiers in ''[[Film/ThreeHundred 300]]'' who weren't from Sparta. They do basically zip and leave frightened so the Spartans can die in a HeroicSacrifice. In the real life Battle of Thermopylae, on the other hand, there were also 700 Thespians and 400 Thebans who refused to flee and instead died alongside the 300 Spartans.

Given that the events of the film are largely told by a survivor to invigorate a group of Spartans, we can probably blame the UnreliableNarrator for that. It would be just like a Spartan to inflate his own people's accomplishments and diminish the others'.

* ''Series'/{{Oz}}'': The gays are mentioned as one of the ten factions of Oz, but they're never seen doing anything as an organized group, and only have three notable characters in the course of the show - one of which was introduced in the final episode.

* In the Literature/{{Nintendo Adventure Book|s}} ''Leaping Lizards'', Mario and his friends compete against the Koopalings in the International Mushroom Games, along with two less important teams, one consisting of nothing but Sledge Bros. ("The Hammers") and another that's just random monsters ("[[CardCarryingVillain The Sneaks]]"). Of the two, the Hammers are less prominent, despite one of their members actually getting a name.

** Combined with CreatorProvincialism, it seems that the Second Wizarding War only affects Britain, because otherwise, that would make the Ministries of Magic of other countries complete unabashed Hufflepuff Houses. The fourth book mentions the Bulgarian Ministry of Magic, and additional materials mention no less than ''16'' Ministries of Magic existing at any time, [[http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Ministry_of_Magic#Known_countries_with_Ministries_of_Magic as shown here]], of which none (except the British, of course) is said to contribute in the war. This may be a simple matter of scale; until the British Ministry fell in the seventh book, it would have looked like nothing but the remnants of a minor terrorist group that [[OddlySmallOrganization capped off at about 50 members]] versus an entire nation.

Especially since the British ministry was actively covering up Voldemort's return.
