* ''Series/FamilyMatters'': Though it was originally supposed to be a show about a family, from season 2 onwards the main protagonist is Steve Urkel who is not part of the main family (the Winslows) but just a neighbor. All the members of Winslow family gradually become {{Satellite Character}}s to him.

* ''Anime/AttackerYou'': Similar example to ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'' below, this trope applies to the title in foreign adaptations, specifically Europeans where NameAndName titles were very common. In Italy the anime is known as ''Mila and Shiro'', the [[DubNameChange "Italian" names]] of ''You and Sho''. Even though he is You's LoveInterest, Sho is a minor character ''at best'' and his name certainly doesn't deserve to be in the title along with the protagonist.

** Similar example (and played ridiculously straight) in the Italian dub of ''Anime/AttackerYou''. In Italy the anime is known as ''Mila and Shiro'', the [[DubNameChange "Italian" names]] of ''You and Sho''. Even though he is You's LoveInterest, Sho is a minor character ''at best'' and his name certainly doesn't deserve to be in the title along with the protagonist.

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'': At first glance it may look like Haruhi is the main character (she is after all the poster girl) but [[POVBoyPosterGirl she's]] [[DecoyProtagonist not]]. Kyon, at volume 4 onwards, is clearly TheHero and he is only the SupportingProtagonist in the sense that the reasons for some of the strange stuff that happens is because of Haruhi's emotional state.

* ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'' is named for Jay Gatsby, who is certainly a major character. However, the protagonist is Nick Carraway, and Gatsby just seems to be another member of his social circle (albeit a high-class one) until a decent way into the book, when he pretty much becomes a central part of every conflict and plotline.

* ''Film/WakingNedDevine'' is a pretty interesting example, considering the only time Ned actually appears on screen, it's [[spoiler: his dead body, having died from shock after learning that he won the lottery. The rest of the movie is about two old men pretending he's still alive to collect this winnings.]]

* ''DontTrustTheBInApartment23'' is named after Chloe, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the bitch in apartment 23]], but the series' main protagonist is Chloe's new roommate June. Chloe is still the second most prominent character in the series, though, and several episodes do revolve mainly around her.

* This is parodied in ''ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' with a sketch about TheFilmOfTheBook of the abovementioned ''{{Rebecca}}'', where [[ExecutiveMeddling the studio insists]] that if the film is going to be called ''Rebecca'', it has to be ''about'' Rebecca. As a result, she spends the whole movie listening to people talk about what it'll be like when she's dead and her husband's second wife moves in.
