** The upcoming sequel ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' is an interesting subversion. Dory the forgetful blue tang takes the lead role as goes on a QuestForIdentity.

* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', Touma is the protagonist, not Index (who is still the second most important character). Index's importance fades so much after the first volume that there's a common rumor that the author had originally intended to change which character's name was in the title with each volume, but the editors shot down the idea for the sake of title recognition. Mikoto "[[RedBaron Railgun]]" Misaka ''is'' the protagonist of the spin-off ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'', however. Accelerator is likewise the protagonist ([[AntiHero for a certain value of the word]]) of ''Manga/ACertainScientificAccelerator''.

* There's no "Herman" in ''ComicStrip/{{Herman}}''. The name "Herman" is more indicative of the sort of character and theme presented by creator Jim Unger.

* The middle segment of ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'' is often referred to as ''Robotech Masters'' which is the name that the Comico comic book series used for those issues. The Masters were the antagonists. The story actually centered on the adventures of Dana Sterling and the 15th Tactical Armored Squad. Sometimes, fandom will refer to that segment of the series as the ''Southern Cross'' segment being that the Army of the Southern Cross was the Earth Defense Organization (as well as a reference to the anime's original title: ''Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross'').

* ''Film/TheLastSamurai'' refers to all those who fought in the Satsuma Rebellion, [[MightyWhitey not Tom Cruise]]. Part of the confusion is that Samurai can refer both to a single warrior and to a group, in this case it was the latter. A fact completely lost on the translators of many countries:

You could say it refers to Katsumoto, who is the main Samurai character and dies a minute or so after the others, but that's a stretch. A fact completely lost on the translators of many countries:
