* The titular Girl-chan in ''GirlChanInParadise'' appears only a handful of times (it's implied she and Swirly Glasses are traveling with the group, but even in group shots they rarely appear) and contributes absolutely nothing but [[MsFanservice blatant fanservice]] (or [[FanDisservice the exact opposite]] thanks to [[DerangedAnimation the art style]]).

* Ironically, the book's second adaptation ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' is also an example because it kept the book's original title but changed the focus so that Wonka now ''is'' the main character.

* ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'': The story of the film focuses more on Goofy's son Max than it does on Goofy, in similar manner to the ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' animated series. It shows Max's premonition of taking after his father, trying to become popular, attempting to get the girl of his dreams to notice him, and struggling to cover up his lie to both Roxanne and Goofy. The one time we actually get to see a scene that focuses on Goofy's perspective alone is when [[spoiler: he discovers that Max changed his directions on the map]]. The sequel film has both of them share equal story importance, though arguably neither movie qualifies for this trope, as the title can also refer to the surname of these characters, Goof.

* ''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.
