* Used as a diss in ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' by UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill, pointing out to UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt that if (Mount) Rushmore was a band then Roosevelt would be its bassist (being overshadowed by UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington, UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson and UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln).

* Wada (stage name Jagi), the bassist of ''Manga/DetroitMetalCity'', is the least-focused on of the band trio. Off the job he is a professional musician who does his job because it's his job, [[TheStraightMan and is neither as conflicted about his role as Negishi or as outright crazy as Nishida]]. His only DayInTheLimelight involves this trope being lampshaded by fans talking about how the other two members overshadowing him.

* Notably {{averted|trope}} in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', where the bassist of DCMC is ''one of the main protagonists''. When the band performs on stage, they all seem to get the same amount of attention.
** However, the game ''does'' have an example of Nobody Loves the ''Bass'', given it has a [[AnimateInanimateObject dusty old bass sitting in the attic as a boss]].

** Hugh [=McDonald=] has been with Music/BonJovi since 1994, but is not considered a full-fledged member (though this is mostly because the band agreed never to officially replace the original bassist). It would later come out that he had played ALL the bass in the studio, for everything since the band's breakout hit "Runaway." His predecessor Alec John Such was the only official Bon Jovi member to have no writing credits.

** Acts with a similar lineup (drums and bass guitar treated with effects to sound like a guitar) include the Canadian dance-punk band Death from Above 1979 and the Rhode Island noise rockers Lightning Bolt

* {{Keane}}'s original lineup didn't include a bassist, with the bass tracks being played either by backing tracks or a supporting member in live shows. From ''Under the Iron Sea'' era shows on, that supporting member was Jesse Quin, who went on to play all the bass parts on ''Perfect Symmetry'' and ''Night Train''. He wasn't officially made a member of the band until around the time ''Strangeland'' came out, some five years after he began playing with them.

* In a Rolling Stone [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/taylor-swift-on-her-messy-love-life-20121012 article]], TaylorSwift accidentally backs her SUV into the parked car behind her, which happens to be owned by bassist Amos Heller. The first thing she says is, "Oh, my God. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD. OH, MY GOD." The second thing she says is, "Oh, is that my bass player? It's fine. It's my bass player!"

* Similarly to Anthony, both bass players for [[Music/Eagles The Eagles]], Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmidt, are less recognized for their bass chops and more for their tenor vocals. Both had been recruited from the country-rock band Poco, where they had played similar roles.
