* ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'' is a rather unique example. It actually ''starts'' with nine members[[note]]Episode 1 starts off with 3 members of the team, with 2 added to make the first episode a ThreePlusTwo situation, with new members added over the next 5 episodes until they're at the core/titular 9[[/note]] and later adds [[spoiler:three, possibly four]] Sixths. Played with in that two of the additions (Ryu Commander and Koguma Skyblue) were introduced ''right after'' the core team was assembled, so it's not really true to say they joined "late" compared to everyone else; plus Skyblue doesn't even have the special equipment/mecha/etc. that usually sets a Sixth apart from the rest.
** Played with when it's revealed that the last member to join, Stinger, was being played up to be a SixthRangerTraitor but "joins" the team in his second appearance, revealing that he was a spy for the ranger's mentor the whole time, answering to the season's mentor. As the original three are confused by this as much as the rest of the team, this means that the last man to "join" the team was actually the first team member. Kyuranger seems to to be trying to make everyone the Kyuranger's Sixth Ranger.

** When the original X-Men "graduate" to make room for the All-New, All-Different team, the lineup remains fairly constant...Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, and ''Comicbook/{{Cyclops}}'', with Banshee or ''Comicbook/JeanGrey'' "Phoenix" rounding out the squad on occasions...until after the Dark Phoenix Saga, when the team picks up TagalongKid Kitty "Sprite" Pryde. In an interesting inversion, she started off without much combat effectiveness, and [[TookALevelInBadass took several levels in badass]] as her time with the team progressed.

* The ''Franchise/KamenRider'' franchise takes the cake for reducing this trope to a Second Rider phenomenon. The series usually starts with a lone hero, but then a third of the way through the show a second Rider with a different set of gear will appear. The two Riders will usually butt heads for a bit, but soon settle in as allies. A few series do this twice over and build the Riders into a PowerTrio. ** [[Series/KamenRider The original 1971 series]] is ''thought'' to do this when Takeshi Hongo (Kamen Rider 1) is joined by Hayato Ichimonji (Kamen Rider 2), but the way it happens is a bit different: [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Rider 2 was created out of necessity to serve as a temporary replacement for Rider 1 when the actor who played Hongo had to take a break after shattering his leg during a stunt gone wrong]]. Rider 1 returned to help out Rider 2, went away again for a while, then returned to become the main character, and it was Rider 2 CommutingOnABus. In other words, Hayato Ichimonji is the second primary rider, not the first secondary rider, and the legendary duo of the Double Riders doesn't become the way we ''most'' often see the two until the last few episodes, and following teamup appearances.

The two Riders will usually butt heads for a bit, but soon settle in as allies. A few series do this twice over and build the Riders into a PowerTrio. But if the numbers grow too high and the series ''starts'' with multiple Riders, it becomes an aversion - the Riders in that case ''won't'' be a team; most other than TheHero are usually selfish {{Jerkass}}es at best and villains at worst, and they'll all spend more time fighting each other than the MonsterOfTheWeek. There will still be an additional Rider introduced at the one-third point, but they'll only serve to stir the pot rather than join the hero's side.

** ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' is the first series to use the "large group of Riders, not all of them good" scenario; and though several Riders weave in and out of the story, there's still an example. Ryuki and Knight work as allies through most of the series with Ryuki as TheCape and Knight as TheCowl; the one who fits this trope and makes their duo a PowerTrio midseason is Kamen Rider Raia. [[spoiler:He eventually dies TakingTheBullet for Ryuki]]. Its adaptation ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'' has a similar setup with their counterparts Kamen Riders Dragon Knight, Wing Knight, and Sting (complete with [[spoiler:Sting getting [[NeverSayDie "vented"]]]]); but later on it takes another Rider, Siren, and makes her an AscendedExtra (compared to her ''Ryuki'' counterpart Femme) as she joins the heroes' team as well.

** Series/KamenRiderOOO and Birth. Unlike most primary and secondary riders, Eiji (OOO) and Date (Birth) never really butt heads, and have a pretty good working relationship. It's [[AloofAlly Ankh]] who dislikes Date for taking all the Cell Medals from the series' monsters, given that Ankh has to eat them in order to live. Eiji ''does'' have some friction with [[spoiler: Gotou, who later becomes Birth, but they've basically buried any emnity by the time that happens]].

** ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' is another series where there are a bunch of Riders with various levels of "good" and "evil" amongst them, playing to the series Warring States period motifs. Considering the first bunch of "Armored Riders" are all just members of rival street gangs (of the Theater/WestSideStory-variety), the local ex-soldier turned French pastry chef, and the head of the morally ambiguous corporation, all of whom obtain their powers around the same time (or had them from the start), there's no real place for a "Second Rider", not even when the morally ambiguous company president and his three Dragons get upgraded gear and become the "New Generation Riders". The only character that ''sort of'' fits this role is Kamen Rider Knuckle, who obtains his powers much later in the series than the others.

An argument could be made for Kamen Rider Knuckle, who obtains as the last to get his powers much later in and the series than the others.one most firmly allied with Gaim, but he never really rises above "supporting character" status.

* Any time a new fossil species is discovered that falls within an established clade of organisms, yet its traits stretch the boundaries of what that clade was previously presumed to have been like, it's this trope for paleontologists. Particularly noteworthy is ''Deinonychus'', the first genus of [[RaptorAttack velociraptor-style therapods]] to be described, whose features plainly fell within that group of carnivorous dinosaurs, yet also shattered older preconceptions about dinosaurs' agility and metabolic rates.
