* Chun-Li of ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' and Mai Shiranui of ''VideoGame/FatalFury'', originally the only female characters in their series, are quite possibly even more popular than the two franchise's true leads, Ryu and Terry. Chun-Li is the only character aside from Ryu to have appeared in every CapcomVsWhatever game and even got [[Film/StreetFighterTheLegendOfChunLi her own movie]], though [[VideoGameMoviesSuck people don't like to talk about it.]]

** Averted in the end. The pairing of Lana and Rusev worked well and Rusev eventually got over, but in 2015, WWE had big plans to split them up in preparation for Lana becoming a solo star, as Vince McMahon liked her but not Rusev. Lana was paired with Wrestling/DolphZiggler while Rusev was paired with Wrestling/SummerRae, who dressed and styled her hair much like Lana did. Fans hated the angle and both of them suffered from it, and was scrapped due to a combination of both Lana and Rusev getting hurt, and Lana posting about their real-life engagement on Twitter. When both had recovered from their injuries, [[StatusQuoIsGod they were back together]].

* The Gathering in Wrestling/{{TNA}} is a bit of a mixed bag. Wrestling/MickieJames eventually became one of the hallmark female wrestlers of UsefulNotes/TheNoughties, being the only woman to have ever held every major women's title in North America, while her old tag partner Julio Dinero faded into obscurity after leaving TNA. Wrestling/{{Raven}} doesn't count, due to be long established and a multi-time world champion. However, ''none'' of them, Raven included, can compare to the success of the fourth and final member of the stable: Wrestling/CMPunk, who became a star that can only be matched by Wrestling/JohnCena and Wrestling/DanielBryan.
* Wrestling/AlexaBliss became the manager to Blake and Murphy on NXT. Fans are usually indifferent to the two of them, but Alexa draws good reactions and has been pushed for the Women's Championship more than once. She's expected to become a star on her own when the team inevitably splits.

* Morrigan Aensland and Felicia (and to a lesser extent, B.B. Hood and Hsien-Ko) from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' are a particularly extreme example. They have completely overtaken the male lead, Demitri, almost 100%. Probably because he was a VillainProtagonist who was hard to render in 3D. In, particular, Felicia was advertised as just another monster at the start, and is now way more than that. And Morrigan has become to ''Darkstalkers'' what Chun-Li is to ''Street Fighter'', the consistent face of the franchise in crossover games.

** Even with Team Xtreme, Lita ended up becoming the breakout star in the long run. She's the only member of the stable that is remembered with genuine fondness (mainly due to being VindicatedByHistory), and was even immortalized into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014. The Hardyz are unlikely to ever get that honor due to their personal problems, though the WWE may be willing to overlook that for Wrestling/JeffHardy.

** This may yet to be determined. As of December 2015, Byron Saxton is now part of the RAW commentary team, while Cameron has been off TV for some time, except for a recent loss on NXT. Naomi, however, is currently part o Team B.A.D., a female stable with Tamina and Sasha Banks. All appearances point to Banks eventually being the BreakupBreakout of that team.

* Perhaps invoked with ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Despite Wonder Woman 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]]. Doubly ironic, considering Wonder Woman is the least popular (or the least well-known) of DC's Big Three heroes.

* Near the end of the BookOfGenesis, we get a list of several dozen grandsons of Jacob/Israel...and one granddaughter, Serach, listed among Asher's children. She's only mentioned one other time (in the Book of Numbers, which implies that she's still alive centuries later), and the strangeness of both passages have led to many legends about her in Jewish literature.

* Wrestling/{{Sable}} was first Wrestling/TripleH's valet and then Marc Mero's. He was popular in WCW as Johnny B Bad but the WWF fans cared little for Marc Mero and much more for Sable, to the point that this was made into an angle. She was given more attention and storylines and is now recognized as the first true WWE Diva. This also happened to Mero's second valet, Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}}, though she didn't become quite as big a WWF star as Sable.
