* Most ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' merchandise is of [[FieryRedHead Asuka]] and [[MysteriousWaif Rei]], with a decent chunk also featuring [[ChristmasCake Misato]] and [[{{Bishonen}} Kaworu]]. Meanwhile, lead character Shinji frequently gets pushed aside to the point where he didn't receive an action figure for the ''Rebuild'' movie series that began in 2007 until ''2012'', long after Asuka, Rei, Kaworu and new character Mari had already received boatloads of new merchandise.

* ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' may count as a double-inversion. It looks like a gender-inversion with the plain Rinko as the viewpoint to the [[GentleGiant comically gigantic]] Takeo... but, nope, Takeo is the protagonist. This is probably intentional, since it also subverts the standard tactic of WillTheyOrWontThey dragged out for most of the series--Takeo and Rinko become a couple within the first few episodes.
