* ''[[Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy I, Jedi]]'' largely does this as the main story is Corran's quest to save his wife by learning to become and Jedi and infiltrating a pirate ring, with the backdrop of the Jedi Academy trilogy. It features cameos from all of the main movie characters in which they were involved in their own struggles and his conflict was barely relevant to them. Luke does make [[AwesomeMoments a significant appearance at the ending and shows just what a proper Jedi can do]] to the Jensaarai, a splinter group of Dark Side force users. This was after Corran was concerned with fighting even one of them.

** From the synopsis, "Dungeons and Discord" will have Discord, Spike, and Big Mac joining in a role-playing game of sorts while the Mane Six are out of town, making it the second episode after "On Your Marks" to have the mane cast be completely absent.

** "PhineasAndFerbStarWars" is set up as this for ''StarWarsANewHope''--Phineas and Ferb are Luke Skywalker's neighbors on Tattooine, Isabella is Han Solo's rival, and "Darthenshmirtz" is a low-ranking member of the Imperial hierarchy, with the movie's events going on in the background. (We literally see Alderaan blow up out a window as the characters are doing something else.)

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' is a Lower Deck ''Series'' for the Film/MarvelCinematicUniverse. It casts Coulson, a [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular supporting character]] from the films, as the leader of a team of misfit TheMenInBlack-types who have to deal with weird extraterrestrial and superheroic incidents that, while still dangerous, are usually a bit below the notice of guys like Iron Man and Captain America.
** The episodes "The End of the Beginning" and "Turn, Turn, Turn" are specifically Lower Deck Episodes for ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', as the team has to deal with the immediate fallout of the movie's events; and the rest of the season is devoted to further consequences.
** An episode of the second season also makes the "lower deck" very important for the plot of ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'': Coulson's team was the one who provided the Avengers with the location of the HYDRA base that they raid on the beginning of the film and they were the ones who pulled Helicarrier that was important for the climax out of mothballs.

**Marvel's Netflix shows are also subjected to this. ''Series/Daredevil2015'', ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', ''Series/IronFist'', and ''Series/LukeCage2016'' are all about lower level superheroes who deal with street criminals or extraterrestrial elements that are even beneath the notice of SHIELD.

* ''Videogame/Doom3'' has the Lost Mission. Viewed from the perspective of the last surviving Bravo Team member (who was dragged through the vents before the Doom Marine could connected with Bravo). The story runs in parallel (though they never cross) to the main story, with the Bravo Marine trying to close a prototype portal in the old Exis labs near Mars City, as the demons could use this as a "back door" to Earth.

* The final produced (but not aired) episode of the original ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' run focuses entirely on Batgirl and Catwoman with Robin playing a supporting role. Discounting a dream sequence at the beginning, Batman only appears out of costume briefly while telephoning Dick out of town.



* The ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' episodes "Rain of Terror" and "Power to the Parrot" don't feature Aladdin or Jasmine ''as the main characters'', instead focusing on Genie, Abu and Iago. Well, in "Power to the Parrot", it ''does'' feature Aladdin and Jasmine, but they are DemotedToExtra and barely have any lines, let alone an impact on the plot, and become PluckyComicRelief.

"Mission: Imp Possible" also features Aladdin getting poisoned at the very beginning so it can focus on Genie and Iago's attempts to recover the antidote for the entire episode.

* The eighth episode of ''Series/AmericanCrimeStory'', "A Jury in Jail," pulls away from the big personalities in the O.J. Simpson trial and instead focuses on the miserable toll the trial is having on the jurors, sequestered under draconian rules for eight months away from their families.

* ''Comicbook/AvengersTheInitiative'' #26 is a genuinely moving {{Tearjerker}} that tells the story of Johnny Guitar and Doctor Sax, two D-list Comicbook/{{Dazzler}} villains who end up on the Shadow Initiative squad. [[spoiler: Johnny discovers that the Shadow Initiative members are just CListFodder meant to perform suicide missions, and ends up dying just in time for the "big name" Initiative heroes to show up and claim all the glory]].

** A rather ironic one with ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilUmbrellaChronicles'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilDarksideChronicles'' have side chapters focusing on various other people temporarily to show what they were doing during that situation, which mirrors the purpose of the games to focus on Wesker and Leon respectively. There's even a chapter in Umbrella Chronicles about what H.U.N.K. was up to during RE2.
