* Despite the trailers for ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' the film putting emphasis on all five emotions at once, and sometimes even giving Fear, Anger and Disgust the spotlight, the movie's true focus is on Joy, Sadness and Bing Bong, the latter of whom isn't even an emotion, but an ImaginaryFriend, and was hidden from marketing. These characters are also the most popular, having wait times on par with Merida at Disney World and having their merchandise sell out during the 2015 holiday season.

* One example of spotlight stealing [[SubvertedTrope backfiring]] was with the well-known electric guitarist Dave Navarro of JanesAddiction. When the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers were close to breaking up because of John Frusciante's drug problems and infighting amongst the members, Dave Navarro -- who's friends with the band members -- stepped in to keep the band from ending. His presence and guitar playing style overshadowed the Peppers funky sound, making the band sound more like Jane's Addiction. This was made clearer on their album together ''One Hot Minute'' which was filled with Dave Navarro's guitar licks and was promoted by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmyuJZH3RAc exotic music videos]] straight out of the Jane's Addiction playbook. The result was a [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished huge backlash]] by fans whom still hold a grudge against Dave Navarro to this day. And the Peppers have officially declared that ''One Hot Minute'' was their worst album and hardly play tracks from it while on tour.

* The main point of MissingWhiteWomanSyndrome, which is when news stations will only cover stories about missing/killed white women as opposed to other people who may be missing at the same time. Even if the person they are covering isn't white, usually it's a very beautiful young woman. The most known example is JonBenét Ramsey, who was killed about 2 decades ago and still shows up in the news sometimes.

** For a more meta example, ever since ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL'', expect ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', ''Anime/DancougaNova'', and ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' to appear in almost all of the recent ''Super Robot Wars'' games.

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by ''[[VideoGame/WWEGames WWE 12]]'' where Cole was DLC. Fair enough as he was a big name at the time, except wave bye bye to Universe Mode unless you enjoy changing his several main event title matches on every card.

* HK-47 steals every scene he's in during the ''Videogame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' series. His ComedicSociopathy made him a fan favorite, meatbag.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Like Brian and Stewie from [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Family Guy]], both Perry and Doofemizerz took not only the spotlight on the show, but also merchandising. Whenever or not it's [[JustHereForGodzilla good]] or bad is up to [[BrokenBase debate]]. Some episodes even focus entirely around them.

* For a show called "''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''" Nightcrawler gets way more focus than anyone else (other than Wolverine, of course).

** 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.
