** Did you know there are four Chaos Gods, each with their own followers and themes? If so, congratulations on knowing more about 40k than some people at Games Workshop. Khorne seems to get more attention from the higher ups than Tzeentch, Nurgle & Slaanesh ever will. The video games are even worse, ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' being especially guilty of this.

A lot of this is the simple fact that you can build a decent Khornate character by having them yell "Blood for the Blood God!" and charge, while the others tend to have much more complex plots and deeper goals.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has been doing this for the ''entire series'' following its massive success. 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]]). This doesn't just extend to guest appearances, however. It still managed to insert itself into ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' by [[spoiler:having a subset of character be reincarnations of ''Awakening'' characters plus three of the children units [[PaperThinDisguise as themselves]] being recruitable characters]], but the most glaring example of this trope being displayed is the fact that character representation in ''VideoGame/TokyoMirageSessionsFE'' is ''heavily'' biased towards ''Awakening'' than any of the other game in the series.

* Etna, TheLancer from ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'', has gotten more and more focus over the years, playing a large role in ''Disgaea 2'', featured predominantly in spinoff titles such as ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'', ''VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero'' and it's sequel, and VideoGame/TrinityUniverse, and Etna Mode (which is essentially a "What if [[DemotedToExtra Laharl had never reawakened]]") in the [[UpdatedRerelease PSP version]] of the first ''Disgaea''. However, with ''Disgaea 3'''s Raspberyl Mode and ''Disgaea 4'', it appears that Etna has been ditched in favor of Flonne, [[spoiler: especially considering that's she's an Archangel now.]] And as for Laharl?. The only subsequent game to give him an important role is ''VisualNovel/DisgaeaInfinite''. And then ''VideoGame/DisgaeaDimension2'' happened, and Laharl was put back in the spotlight.

Added DiffLines:

* A lot of episodes of ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens'' are focused on Bianca (the resident AlphaBitch), to the point that some sources list her as the main character.

Added DiffLines:

* Elise in ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'' could be considered this by many fans of the show since by the second season, most of the episodes focused more on her, which is why the fans considered it a SeasonalRot. This seemed to die down a bit by the third season though.

* 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]].
