* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'': Originally, fans believed that the story would focus on the survivors of the first game in Side:Future, and in the 77th Class in Side:Despair. In Side:Future, all survivors fell in and OutOfFocus constantly while the 77th Class was mostly DemotedToExtra[=/=]AdvertisedExtra. The ones to keep constant focus on them through out the entire show ended up being the former 74th Class Trio, Munakata, Juzo and Yukizome. Yukizome was a protagonist on Side:Despair while Munakata played as the BigGood and Juzo was helping them, in Side:Future, Munakata becomes TheHeavy and Juzo TheDragon. The trio ends up having as much importance if not even more importance to the plot than the survivors and most of the 77th Class.
** The trio gets hit right back with this in ''Side: Hope'', where [[spoiler: Class 77 is revealed to have woken up from the Neo World program and takes up the bulk of the episode, with the Foundation playing second fiddle. Continues well into ''Super Dangan Ronpa 2.5'', where the cast get cameos at best.]]

* Princess Ashelia "Ashe" B'nargin Dalmasca from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''. Granted, the narrator tells you outright this is ''her'' story, but Vaan, initially presented as the main character, is demoted to PluckyComicRelief.
** Though its worth noting that in development, that was all Vaan's role was supposed to be. Originally either Ashe or Basche was supposed to be the main character, but due to ExecutiveMeddling, Vaan got shoehorned into the lead role due to his {{Bishonen}} appearance.

* Helga from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' appeared more and more as the show went on, and by the end she had more episodes dedicated to her than any character but the title character himself. (Even more so than Gerald, Arnold's best friend.) She also gets the lion's share of CharacterDevelopment along with fellow JerkWithAHeartOfGold Harold, while Arnold himself became pretty [[FlatCharacter flat]] and OutOfFocus. Hell, her list of tropes on the character page was so long it had to be split off into [[Characters/HeyArnoldHelgaGPataki a page of its own]].

Arnold [[Characters/HeyArnoldArnoldShortman eventually got one too]], but Helga's is still longer.

** It also helps that Momotaros is a "good monster" character played by one of the franchise's go-to voice actors. It's easier to bring him back than anyone else, so even when a team-up or special doesn't ''star'' the cast of Den-O, you're going to give one of the few characters whose original actor is here a line or two. As such, when Wizard and Decade meet, the other riders get grunting noises in combat, but Momotaros as Den-O gets to let us know that [[CatchPhrase HE... has ARRIVED!]] and get a line or two in during the KirkSummation as well.

** In ''Manga/OsomatsuKun'', Iyami and Chibita became this over time, to the point where it was fondly remembered for their crazy antics and actions (especially Iyami's infamous "SHEEEEH!" line and pose). Osomatsu and his brothers were still relevant, but relegated to bit characters for whatever Iyami and Chibita were up to this week.

The one time that they ''did'' get to shine as a focal point was in their sort-of sequel ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'', but they had to have a major personality overhaul before anything like that could happen.

* This seems to be a major problem in many of Fujio Akatsuka's works:
** In his most well known work, ''Manga/TensaiBakabon'', Bakabon himself gets shafted in favor of ''his own father'', who resonated with audiences more and took larger roles in crazy schemes. Akatsuka himself liked to dress as him and used his catchphrase until the day he died.

** ''Moretsu Ataro'' had this in Nyarome and Boss Kokoro.
