** Compared to the other East Asian countries, Mongolia is almost never talked about with the exception of Genghis Khan, most likely due to staying out of world affairs for hundreds of years after the fall of Mongolian Empire and having a much smaller population than the other East Asian countries.

[[TropeNamers Named]] for the group in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. Subtrope of CrypticBackgroundReference. When a background character/group actually does have impact in the foreground, they are a HeroOfAnotherStory. If they get promoted to the main roster, then SailorEarth might be in effect.

* Many have noted the similarities between Team Valour, Team Mystic and Team Instinct in VideoGame/PokemonGo and Gryffondor, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, right down to the team colours. With most gamers being nerds, that is, instinctive Ravenclaws, it's not surprising that the majority sign on to the mind-focused Team Mystic over the battle-focused Team Valor, and ignore Team Instinct completely.

** Akavir until ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', and even then the Akaviri are only involved in one quest.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' the character can only interact with Houses Telvanni, Redoran and Hlaalu. There are mention of the other houses, Dres and Indoril, but apparently they have no holdings or representatives on Vvardenfell Island (the Dres do have an excuse for that: their centre of power is in southern Morrowind, as far away from Vvardenfell as one can get while still being in Morrowind). In the ''Tribunal'' expansion, Indoril gets a bit more exposure, and already in the vanilla game they had indirect representation (via the Temple. The Ordinators' armor is called ''Indoril'' armor for a reason). More background details on the Dres are revealed, and a bit more in ''Oblivion'', but no Dres personalities are present.

to:

** The continent of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]]. Every game to date in the series has taken place on the continent of Tamriel, with Akavir until lying far to the east. Though Akavir has been mentioned in historical contexts and in in-game books throughout the series, no living member of the four known Akaviri races has appeared in any game to date. The closest occurs in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', and even then the Akaviri are only involved in one quest.

There are mention of the [[ProudMerchantRace Hlaalu]]. The other houses, Dres two active Great Houses, [[ChurchMilitant Indoril]] and Indoril, [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil Dres]], are mentioned but apparently they have no holdings or official representatives on the island of Vvardenfell Island (the Dres do have an excuse for that: their centre of power is in southern Morrowind, as far away from Vvardenfell as one can get while still being in Morrowind). (where the main game takes place). Their lands lie to farther to the south. In the ''Tribunal'' expansion, Indoril gets a bit more exposure, and already in the vanilla game they had indirect representation (via the Temple. [[CorruptChurch Temple]]. The Ordinators' [[KnightTemplar Ordinators]]' armor is called ''Indoril'' armor for a reason). More background details on the Dres are revealed, and a bit more in ''Oblivion'', but no Dres personalities are present. Come ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC, one can interact once again with the Dunmer Great Houses in Solstheim, but only the Redorans and Telvanni. There is once again no representation for Indoril, Dres, or the newcomer, Sandras.

* The Midwest states that make up FlyoverCountry are considered this to the rest of the US, as are the states of Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. The ultimate example of American geography would probably be Delaware (described as "possibly the most obscure American state" in ''The Lost Continent'' by Creator/BillBryson). Aside from housing Dover Air Force Base, being home to the most favorable corporate laws and most well-developed corporate common law, Delaware is a non-entity for most of the population, with, again, the notable exception of everyone whose corporation is headquartered in Delaware for tax reasons (63% of the Fortune 500 are incorporated in Delaware).

* In ''Literature/VenusPrime'', there is mention of a "Latin-African" bloc with its own space stations and a colony on one of Jupiter's moons, but it doesn't play much of a role in the series.

to:

* In ''Literature/TalesOfTheMagicLand'', after the first book, both of the Good Witches shift into that along with their lands and people (and while the Pink Land and the Chatterers get at least some description, the Yellow Land remains shrouded in mystery). Stella and Villina are mentioned once or twice a book as doing something [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin good]] to remind everyone they are the good ones, but they appear never in person again. Granted, villains are usually too afraid to attack them, but the heroes don't give them or their subjects much thought either.

* In the backstory of ''TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen'' there was the Alabaster Legion, made up from those demons who for whatever reason didn't want to join either the [[WideEyedIdealist Crimson]], [[TheBigGuy Iron]], [[NotInThisForYourRevolution Ebon]] or [[MadScientist Silver]] Legions.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'': Sometimes, one or two players CantCatchUp or otherwise have so much trouble keeping pace that they almost become irrelevant in the game. This was especially apparent in Ken Jennings' shows, particularly towards the end [[CurbStompBattle when he'd have upwards of 40+ total responses per show]].
