* NuMetal was often seen as the most commercially profitable genre of metal during it's prime, with numerous acts gaining massive commercial success. In reality, this only applied to a handful of bands. Namely Music/{{Korn}}, Music/{{Deftones}}, Music/LimpBizkit, Music/{{Slipknot}}, Music/{{Disturbed}}, Music/{{Godsmack}}, Music/LinkinPark, Music/PapaRoach, and Music/{{Evanescence}} (and Music/SystemOfADown, if you consider them nu metal). Music/{{Sevendust}}, Trapt, Saliva, P.O.D., and Music/DrowningPool also had success, but not to the same extent. Compare this to the glut of acts who failed to have that same success such as Coal Chamber, 36 Crazyfists, Alien Ant Farm, Martyr AD, Guano Apes, Crazy Town, Stereomud, Ultraspank, Spineshank, Systematic, Injected, Skrape, Primer 55, Unloco, Orgy, Presence, Hot Action Cop, Demon Hunter, Nonpoint, Mushroomhead, Shuvel, Twisted Method, Skindred, Static-X, Flaw, Cold, Dry Kill Logic, Kittie, Machine Head, hed (p.e.), Ra, Lifer, Otep...

* Art Garfunkel of Music/SimonAndGarfunkel, to the point of being the former TropeNamer for LesserStar. It was renamed to keep RealLife examples off the page, but it's just as well because Garfunkel wasn't actually an example of that trope, but rather this one--and, even then, mostly by virtue of PaulSimon's BreakupBreakout.

* Ever since Daniel Inouye died in 2012, Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy became the oldest sitting member of the U.S. Senate. He'd be a sure-fire standout for the second-smallest state in the country -- except for the fact that he's virtually unheard of compared to Vermont's other, nationally-recognized senator: Bernie Sanders.

* Tarzan Goto is considered one of the founding fathers of Wrestling/{{FMW}} but was simply unable to draw without Atsushi Onita's help, leading him to job in attempts to build credibility in younger wrestlers, giving them a chance to draw whenever Onita wasn't around. Goto would go on to run his own "Shin" FMW shows in an attempt to become a top draw himself. Even when Onita was gone from FMW Goto wound up in the shadow of Megumi Kudo, leading to Japan's first mixed tag team match when Goto [[BattleCouple brought his wife along]] to do something about it and Kudo brought in Riki Fuji to sometime about him.
* As a singles wrestler Kyle O'Reilly's Wrestling/RingOfHonor career has often been derisively compared to his former TagTeam partners Davey Richards and Adam Cole. As a tag team wrestler however, he's found much more success with Bobby Fish as reDRagon than he ever did riding either of their coattails. In 2015, O'Reilly started to find more success as a singles wrestler only to be thwarted in every title match he earned by Adam Cole, who [[InvokedTrope wanted keep O'Reilly in his shadow]]. Kyle finally broke out after beating Cole, who was in his second reign as ROH Champion, at the 2016 ''Final Battle'', finally starting his first singles run.

* Many people recognize Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys as Bubba Ray and D-Von. The other Dudleys from ECW are mostly forgotten, with the possible exception of Spike.

* As the picture above demonstrates, most people seem to think Music/{{Macklemore}} is a solo artist, and not part of a duo. Ryan Lewis is the producer, but most people aren't sure what he does, and few people aside from Macklemore's biggest fans really know anything about him other than his name. The fact that Macklemore is the face of most of the music videos, often the only one present (if Lewis is present, he's mainly in the background), further proves this. The cover for the "Downtown" single even puts Macklemore's front and center; Lewis is crammed in with the many credited guest artists.
* Three Tenors have sometimes been referred to as Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/José_Carreras "that other guy"]].

* PowerMetal[=/=]SpeedMetal band Music/DragonForce has a FaceOfTheBand with the guitarist Herman Li, who is well-known for his insanely technical guitar solos and has reached a level of MemeticBadass within the community. For some, it might be easy to forget that they have ''another'' guitarist with Sam Totman, who's been around since the beginning alongside Li, as the band had been started based around their dual-shred guitars. Despite being just as skilled at his instrument, engaging in similarly technical solos, and (unlike Li), taking a big part in the main songwriting process, he is nowhere near as well-known as Li. Being a TokenMinority in metal alongside having a very distinct appearance can definitely help with sticking out from the rest.

* Wrestling/RicFlair has four children, the best known of which is his daughter, Wrestling/{{Charlotte}. While not nearly as well known, his two sons David and Reid have their own notoriety: the former for his infamous flop of a career and [[MemeticMutation memetic entrance video]], the latter for dying tragically at the age of 25 and for his death being tastelessly referenced by WWE in a Paige/Charlotte angle.
