** Luigi himself began as this, serving as Player 2 to Mario's Player 1 with no distinguishing characteristics. He was then given a higher, floatier jump but wasn't shown in the video games to be anything more than Mario's most frequent sidekick and his abilities defined as variants of Mario's until ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'', where he got to be in his own game and was portrayed as cowardly and in need of confidence. Since then, Mario and Luigi have diverged in personalities and abilities. Luigi's behavior was even [[FreudianExcuse given a reason]] in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'' as a direct cause of Mario always overshadowing him, making Luigi a {{Deconstruction}} of this trope.

** Hinata's motivation and purpose were centered around Naruto in every appearance she made from the beginning of the series' Part 2 and onwards. Her participation mainly consists of watching him from a distance, efforts to protect him from danger, a confession of love and finally her marriage to Naruto which brought closure to her main theme. It is such an extreme example of this trope that it may be challenging to find dialogue where Hinata doesn't say his name or speak of anything related to him at all.

** [[TomboyPrincess Princess Daisy]] is mostly defined by being Peach's gal pal and a [[ImpliedLoveInterest possible love interest]] to Luigi. After a while she did get a more energetic personality, her own flower motif, and a louder voice to go with during the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube games, which is an improvement from her first few playable appearances, where was there was little to differentiate her from Peach. In later games such as ''VideoGame/Mario Tennis Ultra Smash'' and ''VideoGame/Mario Strikers Charged'' she doesn't even share the same gameplay type and statistics as Peach, and is fully playable without Peach's involvement, and the two don't even show up in the same events in the 3DS version of Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' has an unusual example of the main character and the BigBad being this to each other, simultaneously. [[TheHero Kyousuke]] is driven to save anyone in need because of his perceived failure to [[spoiler:control the White Queen, causing her to kill many people]]. His main goal in life is to find some way of permanently destroying her. Conversely, [[spoiler:the White Queen wants nothing more than for Kyousuke to love her again]], and is involved in every story arc solely for this reason.

*** The only reason why the LARPers (Leonard & Tammy) are a team is just so that they can be [[spoiler:the first ones eliminated]]. Further proven by [[WordOfGod confirmation]] that Leonard was a last minute addition to the show to replace a magician character (which also lead to Tammy's creation since the magician would've been paired with an assistant).



** The Rockers (Rock & Spud) went through most of their run without interacting with any of the other characters. The only time they did interact with others was in their final episode where they both interacted with the Stepbrothers and Spud briefly interacted with Carrie.

** In the second season, we got Hush Middy, Tekkadan's new recruit. The earlier episodes portray as a potential rival to Mikazuki and has a backstory on how he joined Tekkadan in the first place. Later on, he decided to become Mikazuki's understudy, much to Mika's chagrin, [[spoiler:and carries him all around after he got paralyzed]]. Then on the second to the last episode, [[spoiler:he got killed off lamenting that he couldn't catch up with Mika. What worse is that in the epilogue, his name is not even in the Tekkadan memorial]].

* Saikawa from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' revolves almost completely around her best friend and crush Kanna. Justified since it's established that Kanna is her OnlyFriend and the rest of the recurring cast are adults (except for Shouta, but they never really interact).
