* Here have been plenty of female characters in ''Franchise/LupinIII'' over the decades, but Fujiko Mine is the only one to appear in every version of the franchise. Her fame reached a climax in 2012, when after forty years and much egging by the fans, she had a spin-off series that featured her and the rest of the Lupin gang as a series-long OriginsEpisode, similar to the Monkey Punch era titled ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine''.

* [[Wrestling/TammyLynnSytch Sunny]] first debuted fr WWF as the valet for the Bodydonnas. She became much more popular than they did, and was booked as the manager of several different wrestlers ([[Characters/WWETagTeams The Godwinns]], [[Wrestling/RonSimmons Farooq Asad]], even Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors briefly). However she was a few years early for the Wrestling/AttitudeEra and so wasn't able to reach the popularity level that Sable did.
* Wrestling/StacyKeibler. Originally came up in Wrestling/{{WCW}} as Miss Hancock, the secretary for Standards & Practices. Eventually broke out and wound up being the only woman NOT to be fired by WCW near the end. In the WWF, she was manager for many wrestlers, and was almost always more popular than the guys she managed.

* Inverted Thuggin And Buggin Enterprises, as Wrestling/{{Jazz}} ended up being the most successful member of the group despite being a hanger on to it while they were together but after they were forced apart by the draft, Theodore Long eventually became general manager of Smackdown, Wrestling/MarkHenry ''eventually'' became World Heavyweight Champion and Chris Nowinski's research into concussions would change the way people in the USA looked at sports (and simulated sports) for good. The one she remained more successful than was Rodney Mack, the one man who remained affiliated with her, and even that only picked back up when they left WWE entirely and went back to the Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA promotions.

** Lyndis, to a lesser extent, is also pretty popular. From ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]'', she is the only member of the PowerTrio to appear in other games[[note]]outside of its own canon, Hector and Eliwood both appeared in the chronological sequel ''The Binding Blade''[[/note]] as [[DownloadableContent DLC]] in ''Awakening'' and as Assist Trophy in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games. This is partly due to the fact that she was [[FirstInstallmentWins the first Lord and first contact with the series for the Western audience]] outside of Marth and Roy.

* Perhaps invoked with ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Despite Comicbook/WonderWoman having a supporting role, a lot of press stemmed from the fact that she was making her live-action film debut. Many fans expressed that they were going to see the movie just for her. While the movie got mixed reviews from both fans and critics, Wonder Woman was one of the few things to get lots of praise - and many expressed excitement for her upcoming long-awaited [[Film/WonderWoman2017 movie]]. Said movie ended up [[https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/wonder_woman_2017 becoming the first critical success]] of the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse and was massively popular amongst fans and critics alike. The film has gone on to become the most successful DCEU film at the domestic box office. Doubly ironic, considering Wonder Woman is the least popular (or the least well-known) of DC's Big Three heroes.

* Trish's arch-rival, Wrestling/{{Lita}}, benefited from this as well. She debuted as a valet to Essa Rios who was meant to be a pioneer of the Light-Heavyweight division. He ended up lapsing into obscurity (more so than Test and Albert) while Lita became popular with the fans for her high flying moves. She also enjoyed slightly more success than the Hardy Boyz, getting inducted into the Hall of Fame before either of them. She had previously been this in ECW as Danny Doring's manager.

* After the success of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', Square decided to make a storyline sequel simply called ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' and focused on [[SummonMagic summoner]] Yuna who also was [[{{Deuteragonist}} a main character]] in the previous game, but this time she actually is ''the'' main character and leader of a PowerTrio. However, if she was pretty popular in the first game, her portrayal in this LighterAndSofter sequel received a lukewarm reception. She eventually appeared in ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia 012]]'' (which in itself is pretty remarkable, the cast of the game mostly focusing on TheHero and the BigBad of [[Franchise/FinalFantasy each entry]]) with a mix of her [[EraSpecificPersonality Era Specific Personalities]].

* Wrestling/{{Melina}} Perez was initial more successful than the tag team she was managing, MNM, after they broke up, but overtime, sometimes in spite of himself, Wrestling/{{John Morrison}}/Hennigan/Mundo achieved at least as much recognition. Joey Mercury has gotten the short end of the stick however. He was considered the heart of MNM in OVW, who taught the other two to become better wrestlers while learning from them to become even more charismatic, but when the team came to WWE [[CreatorsPest he was deemed the weak link]] and became the reason for their breakup when Melina [[RealitySubtext called him such]] and Morrison agreed with her! Between this and a burial following a botched spot in a ladder match, that may have not even been his fault, Mercury's promising career kind of stalled.

** Even Gaz gets this to a degree. While she's officially one of the show's four main characters, she shows up fewer times than the other three and many of her appearances are short cameos. Still plenty popular with the fans, though.

** Trish lampshaded this once when Vince [=McMahon=] complimented on her match. She pantomimed dialing a phone and said, "Hello, 911? I'd like to report a robbery. It looks like the women have stolen the show".

* Poppet from ''[[VideoGame/MoshiMonstersMoshlingsThemePark Moshi Monsters]]'', specifically, the pink one that is used as the default color and is classified as female, managed to get popular enough to have a spin-off magazine with new monster friends.
