* ''LightNovel/{{Shimoneta}}'': Tanukichi is the everydude, who gets drawn into the screwball ero terrorist antics of Ayame Kajou, the series' [[ManicPixieDreamGirl heroine]] and [[SeriesMascot mascot character.]] So she's the one featured most prominently on the Blu-ray/DVD boxset, while he gets pushed into the background between Anna and Fuwa. And he's completely absent from all promotional art for the series, in favor of Ayame, usually in [[SecretIdentity her 'Blue Snow']] persona.
* ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'' is such an extreme case, that the male protagonist, Ryosuke, isn't seen on the DVD cover at all. Instead, it's a solo picture of [[FieryRedhead Lisara]], naked in bed. Whereas the Blu-ray cover is a group shot of her with the other three girls: Ilia, Quele, and Mina.

* VisualNovel format in general, particularly EroGe or harem romance are prone to this. Protagonists are often committed on the cover and don't get pictures in character lists, if they are afforded an entry at all. VNDB usually reflects this, often not even having an entry for a male protagonist, or it being very limited compared to heroines.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' is another example, where, on top of having the same aforementioned dynamic, Midna spends most of the game ordering Link around and giving him advice while being the most heavily advertised new character.

* Played with in ''Kobayashi-san chi no Maid Dragon'', where the "poster girls" are the [[OurDragonsAreDifferent shapeshifting dragons]], of which the main characters are, with the exception of [[TheOneGuy Fafnir]], [[CuteMonsterGirl all female]]. Particularly central characters are Tohru, the titular [[{{Meido}} Maid]] [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Dragon]] and Kobayashi's ImpliedLoveInterest, as well as Kanna, who is [[ParentalSubstitute practically]] their adopted daughter. However, the manga is not an entirely [[StealthPun straight]] example. Here's a hint: It's official English name is ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''.
