* The kids in ''Series/{{Roseanne}}''. Lecy Goranson will forever be known as the original Becky, although she did have a small role in ''Film/BoysDontCry'', all her other roles are in indie films and shorts. Sara Gilbert has had it a little bit better, with recurring roles on ''Series/{{ER}}'' and ''Series/TheBigBandTheory'', along with co-hosting ''The Talk'' on CBS, she's still best known as Darlene. DJ is Michael Fishman's only major credit. Averted with Creator/SarahChalke (Becky in later seasons), who's probably better known these days for her work on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''.

* Nobuhiro Watsuki was able to find success in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', and only that. The series went on for 6 years, received an anime and some movies, and the characters are nearly always used in ''Weekly Shonen Jump'' crossovers. He has attempted to write other series, like ''Manga/GunBlazeWest'' and ''Manga/BusoRenkin'', but they never received enough acceptance to go on for more than two years. Watsuki has since become aware of this and now just writes the occasional ''Rurouni Kenshin'' spin-off 1- or 2-chapter story.
* Eiichiro Oda believes he'll be known only for ''Manga/OnePiece'' (and with it being one of the longest LongRunners in manga history and being such a cultural icon that the manga's bestselling status got it into the Literature/GuinnessWorldRecords, he's extremely likely to be correct), so once he finishes ''One Piece'', he plans on doing only short stories until he retires or dies and will never attempt another long series again.

* In 1967, then-Senate Majority Leader '''Everett Dirksen''' scored a Top 40 hit with "Gallant Men" a recitation of a patriotic poem he had written backed by music. He was the first sitting United States Senator to score a pop hit. Although Dirksen recorded several spoken word albums, "Gallant Men" was his only chart entry before his death in 1969. Around the same time, comedian Bill Minkin created an impersonation of him as ''Senator Everett [=McKinley=]'' alongside a UsefulNotes/RobertFKennedy parody called ''Senator Bobby'' with two different versions of the Troggs' "Wild Thing". With the Bobby version getting lead billing, "Wild Thing" also went top 40.
