Deleted a justifying edit and the point it's responding to.
** [[spoiler:After Prue's death]], Piper grew into the role of Superwitch, brewing most of the potions and vanquishing most of the demons. She also was wrapped up in the plots, what with her struggling marriage with Leo and trying to protect her two children. During Season 8, only a few episodes of the season were not completely devoted to either Piper or [[TheScrappy Billie.]] ** Not really. Phoebe got just as much plots and story time as Piper in the later seasons. Paige, not so much until season 7. But by season 8 all sisters got equal amounts of story development.

removed withut motive. no other companions has the screentime of Clara in the show.
Added DiffLines:
*** Specifically, much more focus was put on Clara's personal/love life than usual for a companion, perhaps to compensate for her not getting much personality development in the previous season (her existence initially being a huge mystery and a bunch of other story arcs being wrapped up at the same time), ''on top of'' her having to get to know the Doctor all over again post-regeneration. The occasional plot completely revolved around her becoming like the Twelfth Doctor (for better and for worse) and her relationship with Danny Pink was crucial to the big story arc. People complaining about this were mocked in its finale -- after a cold open in which Clara claims to be the Doctor to fool some Cybermen, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lrGwnz3aX4 actress Jenna Coleman gets top billing]] in the opening credits, and her eyes are seen instead of [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Peter Capaldi]]'s [[BigOlEyebrows Attack Eyebrows]]! This was less of an issue in Series 9 owing to [[spoiler: Danny's death at the end of 8]], a focus on two-part stories with grandiose settings and situations, and her relationship with the Doctor firmly becoming MerlinAndNimue-esque.

** Surprisingly, The Doctor himself became this. The plot was originally that two school teachers, representing science and history, joined the TARDIS team and stories would alternate between sci-fi and historical. Once they left, the focus fell on The Doctor, who went from an antisocial member of the group to the group leader, and [[TheConstant the constant]] of the series.

Although the companions are really {{Deuteragonist}} / {{Tritagonist}} characters, several new series companions have since been ''accused'' of hogging screen time and heroics from the Doctor, such as Clara Oswald (Series 7B-9, but especially in Series 8).

* In the second ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' movie, the premise is "[[FurAgainstFang Vampires vs. Werewolves"]]. The first has Lucian, perhaps the most interesting, charismatic, and likable character, while the second ''Underworld'' movie had about three scenes with werewolves, none of whom speak. Vampires and [[HybridMonster super-vampires]] take up most of the screen time.

Ironically enough, the one film that 'does'' focus on the werewolves, the Lucien-focused prequel third film, is the best received film in the franchise, likely because it focused on who the audience actually wanted to see.

* In ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' comics, ComicBook/EmmaFrost has stolen much attention away from women who have been in the book much longer because they've been removed in different ways. Jean Grey and Comicbook/{{Storm}} (whose shoes she both now fills) had a [[DroppedABridgeOnHim bridge dropped on her]] and got married off respectively. Shadowcat was PutOnABus (or trapped in a missile). Rogue was put in a coma. Psylocke was outside the reality with the Comicbook/{{Exiles}}. Regardless of the changing status of those characters, Emma is still the most prominent.

He takes over the strip to such an extent that important original characters like Cutter John and the eponymous Milo Bloom disappeared before the end. Although its Sunday-only sequel, ''Outland'', wasn't originally conceived to include the ''Bloom County'' regulars, Opus showed up in the third week, and although others came back as well, Opus had again become the primary focus.

** Several ''armies'' have some sub-factions that qualify for this trope. Especially the Ultramarines for the Space Marines. Just look at the latest Space Marine codex, in which the majority of chapters get one named special unit each, specifically in the HQ slot. The Ultramarines get about six. And that's only scratching the surface of the codex, since it has several sections devoted to ''only'' the Ultramarines, 90% of the artwork in the codex is of the ultramarines, and as if that is not enough, there are just as many Ultramarines miniatures on displayed in the codex as all the other chapters ''combined'', if not more. Indeed, many fans did not like this at all due to the fact that their favorite chapters being pushed aside in favor of a chapter only some people are fans of. Matt Ward, the writer of the codex, [[RunningTheAsylum even admitted himself that he was a die-hard fan for the Ultramarines]], and sincerely apologized for this. At least one should be thankful that several other chapters have their own separate codices, so they don't get pushed aside in favor of another chapter, but ''geez''! *** There is a certain amount of HateDumb at work, however - the Ultramarines' share of special characters is ''lower'' than any previous codex (they now have about 50%, where in previous Codexes there were only ''two'' non-Ultramarine special characters, if that. Similarly, 90% of the artwork is ''always'' about the Ultramarines, because GW doesn't want to mix up the box art and confuse customers. **** Those of us who remember 2nd edition find the idea that the Ultramarines have steadily got more prominent somewhat amusing. In 2nd edition there wasn't actually a Codex: Space Marines for the standard chapters, there was just Codex: Ultramarines, which could be used to make armies from other chapters if you wanted to paint them in some other way. The background was entirely focused on Ultramar and the Ultramarines, ALL the special characters were Ultramarines, and funnily enough nobody complained about it. Indeed, long-term Ultramarines players who date from this era often consider the other Codex chapters as something of a spotlight-stealing squad, forcing their Ultramarines out of their own codex and trying to make it more of an ensemble piece. The other three major chapters - Dark Angels, Blood Angels and Space Wolves - have not had their books usurped in this manner!

And that's only scratching the surface of the codex, since it has several sections devoted to ''only'' the Ultramarines, 90% of the artwork in the codex is of the ultramarines, and as if that is not enough, there are just as many Ultramarines miniatures on displayed in the codex as all the other chapters ''combined'', if not more. Indeed, many fans did not like this at all due to the fact that their favorite chapters being pushed aside in favor of a chapter only some people are fans of. Matt Ward, the writer of the codex, [[RunningTheAsylum even admitted himself that he was a die-hard fan for the Ultramarines]], and sincerely apologized for this. At least one should be thankful that several other chapters have their own separate codices, so they don't get pushed aside in favor of another chapter, but ''geez''! *** There is a certain amount of HateDumb at work, however - the Ultramarines' share of special characters is ''lower'' than any previous codex (they now have about 50%, where in previous Codexes there were only ''two'' non-Ultramarine special characters, if that. ''geez''! Similarly, 90% of the artwork is ''always'' about the Ultramarines, because GW doesn't want to mix up the box art and confuse customers. **** ** Those of us who remember 2nd edition find the idea that the Ultramarines have steadily got more prominent somewhat amusing. In 2nd edition there wasn't actually a Codex: Space Marines for the standard chapters, there was just Codex: Ultramarines, which could be used to make armies from other chapters if you wanted to paint them in some other way. The background was entirely focused on Ultramar and the Ultramarines, ALL the special characters were Ultramarines, and funnily enough nobody complained about it. Indeed, long-term Ultramarines players who date from this era often consider the other Codex chapters as something of a spotlight-stealing squad, forcing their Ultramarines out of their own codex and trying to make it more of an ensemble piece. The other three major chapters - Dark Angels, Blood Angels and Space Wolves - have not had their books usurped in this manner!
