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



* 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.

* 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.



* Tinkerbell from ''Disney/PeterPan'' got her own spinoff franchise in the Disney Fairies.

* Tinkerbell from ''Disney/PeterPan'' got her own spinoff franchise in the Franchise/DisneyFairies. In a different kind of level, Tinkerbell also became the Disney Fairies. mascot. And she's easily the most recognisable character from the movie for this reason.

* 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.

* 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 Wrestling/CMPunk, who became a star that can only be matched by Wrestling/JohnCena and Wrestling/DanielBryan.

* Agent ComicBook/PeggyCarter, the love interest and only non-bit female character in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''. After her popularity with fans became clear (due in no small part to her actress, Creator/HayleyAtwell), Marvel Studios has tried to include her wherever possible. Joss Whedon wrote a deleted scene for her in ''Film/TheAvengers'', [[Film/AgentCarter she's the subject of one of the]] ''Film/MarvelOneShots'', and she has cameos in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', and ''Film/AntMan''. To top it off, she was given her very own television miniseries, ''Series/AgentCarter'', making her the first leading lady of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. She has or will have more appearances across the franchise than ComicBook/CaptainAmerica himself.

* ''Very'' prevalent in hip-hop. Any time there's a lone femcee among a clique of male rappers, she'll stand out simply by being the only female voice. Her success as a solo artist isn't guaranteed, but she'll still serve a niche by catering to female audiences in the male-dominated genre. Creator/LilKim is one of the earliest and best-known examples, as she was the breakout star from Junior M.A.F.I.A., a group of Creator/TheNotoriousBIG's proteges, before becoming famous in her own right. Other femcees who came up this way include Creator/LaurynHill (The Fugees), Eve (the Ruff Ryders), and Creator/NickiMinaj (Young Money).

It's often that many shows feature a bigger ratio of males to females in their characters, with TheSmurfettePrinciple being pretty widespread. However a lot of the time this can work in favor of the female character. Being the only female in a largely male environment makes her stand out and be [[MenAreGenericWomenAreSpecial distinctive]] from the guys. If the writers have written her well and avoided most PositiveDiscrimination, then chances are she will become popular with the viewers. If her popularity rises high enough, she might even become a BreakoutCharacter.

* Remember T&A? Wrestling/{{Test}} and Albert? A few people probably do remember them and some probably will remember that they were in a {{tag team}} but who was their valet again? Oh yeah...''Wrestling/TrishStratus the 2013 Hall Of Famer''.

Probably not, but they do remember Wrestling/MichelleMcCool, who was their valet and went onto become the first [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-diva.html WWE Divas' Champion]] as well as one of the prominent figures of the women's division - not to mention [[HappilyMarried Mrs.]] [[Wrestling/TheUndertaker Undertaker.]]

* Remember ECW dancing machine DJ Gabriel? Well, he lasted only six months in the WWE while his valet Wrestling/AliciaFox got traded to ''Smackdown'' and put into a prominent storyline. She became an EnsembleDarkhorse with Diva fans on the internet and won the Divas' Championship when she was moved to ''Raw''.

* Similar to the ''Xena'' example in the Live Action TV section, Mikoto Misaka of ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' ended up getting [[Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun her own]] MorePopularSpinoff.

* 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''.
