* ''Film/MeanGirls'':
** Jonathan Bennett is best remembered for his role as Aaron Samuels in the teen comedy and not much else.
** Borderline. Creator/LindsayLohan starred in numerous successful movies from the late-'90s to mid-'00s before her [[DeaderThanDisco fall from grace]] later in the decade. However, many would agree that her role as Cady Heron was her only memorable performance, even if her other movies were successes (the ''Film/FreakyFriday'' remake actually outgrossed ''Mean Girls'' despite being far less iconic today).

* Like Orff, French composer '''Jules Massenet''' is known only for a single movement from a work rather than a whole work. He's mostly known for "Meditation", a passage for solo violin and orchestra from his opera ''Thais'', often used in film and television scores for emotional scenes.

* '''Leopold Mozart''', the father of the more famous Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart, was an acknowledged musician and composer in his own right, but today only his ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhTGbp6ta5Y Toy Symphony]]'' is played regularly. Worse, it was for many years incorrectly attributed to Music/JosephHaydn.

* Speaking of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Sarah Natochenny, the current voice of Ash, has no major roles in any other anime titles. Most of her other work is in fashion modeling and some on-camera roles. VeronicaTaylor (his original voice) however, is a very prominent anime and video game voice actress.

* The dance music of '''Émile Waldteufel''' is not entirely unknown, but his most well-known piece by far is ''[[The Skater's Waltz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zirn3M3ewQc]]'', a longtime StandardSnippet in film and television.

* '''MC Einar''' was a pioneer of Danish hip-hop in the Eighties, but is almost only remembered for his Christmas hit ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orHhn4zll7w Jul, Det' Cool]]'', where he raps a sarcastic text about the commercialization, repetitiveness and forced ''hygge'' of Danish Christmas over a sampling of Leroy Anderson's ''Sleigh Ride''. Sadly Einar never made any money from the song; it was intended for a one time joke performance only, so he signed over the rights to Leroy Anderson's estate, before the song became popular.

* '''Paul de Schlözer''' might be the most triumphant example of a one-hit wonder in classical music. He is only known to have written two small pieces for piano, one of which, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjjJ9xGb-7I Etude de concert Op. 1 No. 2 in A flat minor]], is a brilliant and extremely difficult piece often played as an encore by pianists. [[note]] An urban legend claims that the reason he did not write anything else is that the etudes were really written by the more well-known pianist and composer Moritz Moszkowski, and that de Schlözer won the manuscript from him in a card game.[[/note]]
