** The episodes "On Your Marks", "Hard to Say Anything", and "To Change a Changeling" have no appearances from the Mane Six at all: the former two focus on the Cutie Mark Crusaders, while the latter focuses on Trixie and Starlight.

* [[AudioPlay/StrikersSoundStageX The Mariage case]] is the only major storyline in the entire ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' franchise where neither the Three Aces (Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate), nor a certain clone of the last Belkan Sankt Kaiser play a major role—in fact, the Aces don't appear in it at all. As a result, it is a fairly grounded (by the series' standards) episode that offers unique insight into what most TSAB investigations that don't involve an impending apocalypse or two are like.

** "[[LampshadeHanging Butters's Very Own Episode]]" focuses on Butters, a minor recurring character up to that point. This is an interesting case in that, after that episode, Butters became a much more prominent figure; these days, he gets more screen time than anyone aside from the main four (and way more lines than Kenny). It is also notable for coming out of completely nowhere; it was the last episode of a season, and the preceding episode ended on a massive cliffhanger.

* The TropeNamer from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', as mentioned at the top. Specifically, the episode focuses on a group of four ensigns who are concerned about their performance evaluations, and figuring out which of them will have a chance to be promoted. In the background, we hear a more typical storyline going on, but the audience is left in the dark just like the ensigns, who do not have the security clearance to learn what is going on. When we do see real focus on the main cast, the primary discussion still involves evaluations of the younger officers. In addition, the supporting cast, such as Geordi, are superior officers (whereas normally they're subservient to Picard.)

* The fifth-season ''Series/BabylonFive'' episode "A View from the Gallery" took the idea to its logical extreme by focusing on janitors on the space station, characters we'd never seen before and never saw again. The episode also hangs some lampshades. Ever try to figure out the purpose of those vaguely mop-like things are you see random crew members using in the background? So do they.

** In "Tapestry", [[ForWantOfANail Picard's decision to avert his near-fatal fight with Nausicaans in his youth means he turns out to be a lower decks-type officer]]. In this timeline, he's become the assistant astrophysics officer in the ''Enterprise'', [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy who doesn't have any prospects of advancements]].

* In ''Film/Halo4ForwardUntoDawn'', the focus of the story is on Lasky and the other cadets. Even when the fighting starts and when [[spoiler: Master Chief]] shows up, they only catch glimpses of the latter's heroics.
