* There have been complaints of Loki becoming this in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', with him upstaging Malekith -- who is the actual main villain -- and the filmmakers removing some of Malekith's scenes to make room for more Loki.
** That said, it seems Marvel realized this and put him on the sidelines for the time being so other villains can get the spotlight and keep Tom Hiddleston from being typecasted. The only mention of Loki at all in ''Film/TheAvengersAgeOfUltron'' is during Thor's dream sequence but otherwise he never shows up in person and won't appear again till the [[Film/ThorRagnarok third Thor movie]].

Loki. That said, it seems Marvel realized this and put him on the sidelines for the time being so other villains can get the spotlight and keep Tom Hiddleston from being typecasted. The He was even supposed to appear in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', but his scenes were cut and the only mention of Loki at all in ''Film/TheAvengersAgeOfUltron'' the film is during Thor's dream sequence but otherwise he never shows up in person and won't appear again till the [[Film/ThorRagnarok third Thor movie]].movie, ''Film/ThorRagnarok''.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has been doing this for the ''entire series'' as of late. It's been featured in not only ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS]]'' (with Robin and Lucina as playable characters), but in ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone2'' as well (as Chrom and Lucina as playable characters, being the only Nintendo characters in the game besides [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles Fiora]]). There's also the fact that in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' [[spoiler:a few of the characters are reincarnations of ''Awakening'' characters]]), but the most glaring example of this trope being displayed is the fact that ''VideoGame/TokyoMirageSessionsFE'' ''heavily'' skews representation towards ''Awakening'' than any of the other game in the series.

** The original ''[[Anime/YuGiOh Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters]]'' anime gave TheRival Seto Kaiba even more prominence than he had in the manga, in which he was already an EnsembleDarkHorse. He got a filler arc dedicated to him and his family history, a major role in the DOMA filler arc plus another smaller filler arc where the villain had beef with him, ''and'' got to take part in the anime's version of the Memory World arc and play a key role in saving the day by attacking Zorc when he is about to kill Yugi and the others.
** The first ''[[Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries Yu-Gi-Oh!]]'' anime did the same. Kaiba originally appeared in two manga plotlines during the period the anime covers, but his massive role in later chapters led to them throwing him into a ton of filler episodes, including the "Game Master" story arc, which has more episodes devoted to it than any other arc. Oddly enough, they also mostly wrote Mokuba out of the series.
** ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' has Crow, who has had multiple duels contrived to showcase his Blackwing deck. One of these duels had him pull off a First Turn Kill in his very first episode.

** ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' at times didn't quite seem to know who or what they wanted to focus on character-wise. But in the last two arcs, the Archlight brothers, a QuirkyMinibossSquad of one of the second arc's villains, manages to make a comeback as allies, squeezing out 5 Duels between the three of them (most of them Tag Duels), which is a lot considering it happens right when the show was nearing its end. Meanwhile, Yuma's other friends and allies accumulated throughout the series, other than Shark and Kite, are either treated as barely focused cannon fodder or made to OptOut when the going got real tough[[note]]aside from Tori who was the only one who managed to stick with Yuma to the very end[[/note]]. A far cry from the earlier series where the TrueCompanions would stick with TheHero to the very end.

* Since Season 7 onward, Denzel Crocker, Timmy's dad, Cosmo, and Foop from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' have more and more amount of screen-time in the series, in detriment of main characters of earlier seasons, like Chester, AJ, Trixie Tang and Vicky, who was the main antagonist of the series for most of the time.

* Despite [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves Snow White]] being the first [[DisneyPrincess Disney Princess]] ever made, most of the marketing for the franchise uses Disney/{{Cinderella}} as its' main charactwr, despite her being the second princess made by Disney, and she gets more attention than Snow White does. For example, when Snow White was re-released on home video in 2016, Disney Stores did not make any new merchandise to celebrate as it did with the other films in the Princess franchise, and she was the sixth Disney Princess to have a cameo on ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst''. ''Series/OnceUponATime'' averts this by having a several characters based on Snow White as the main characters.
