* The first luchador Wrestling/{{CMLL}} gave the Wrestling/{{Mistico}} gimmick to became the undisputed top draw in not only the promotion but the entire nation, with strong arguments that he was the breakout star of the planet. That argument fell apart when his success in Latin America and Asia was followed up by the disastrous Wrestling/SinCara gimmick in WWE, which coincided with CMLL trying again by giving [[TheGimmick the Místico gimmick]] to Dragon Lee, who merely drew decent critical response and financial gain. The Dragon Lee gimmick in turn went to a rookie luchador who took everyone by surprise and became one of CMLL's foremost stars, leaving the first Dragon Lee stuck in two shadows.

*** The tables have turned slightly: two silver medals and a team gold later, Raisman is getting a lot more media attention (alongside Biles) than Douglas this time around. Douglas's only medal has been the team gold.

* Mark Ronson is a very successful producer in the UK, but never had a hit in the US until 2014/15 with "Uptown Funk!". Unfortunately, outside the UK he was completely stuck in the shadow of its featured vocalist, global pop superstar Music/BrunoMars, and it's almost universally seen as Mars' song rather than Ronson's. His name is literally a footnote, and even the music video put all attention on Mars with Ronson only making cameos. As a result, Ronson himself had so little momentum coming out of the song that its parent album ''Uptown Special'' was a colossal failure outside the UK and, aside from a credit on an A$AP Rocky song that scraped the bottom of the charts for one week, Ronson [[OneHitWonder never set foot on a non-British singles chart again]]. (A similar situation has happened with the Music/{{Amy Winehouse}}-sung "Valerie", although it was nowhere near as bad as with "Uptown Funk!")

** Find someone who isn't a lifelong gym fan and ask them to name all members of Atlanta's Magnificent Seven. Their response will probably be, "Dominique Moceanu, Shannon Miller, Dominique Dawes, that one girl who hurt her ankle, and.... uh...." Poor, poor Amanda Borden, Jaycie Phelps, and Amy Chow.
* The 2014 Nobel Peace Prize was won by Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, but it was the former who got all the media attention as the latter was ignored.

** In 2016, it's Douglas and Simone Biles taking all the media attention. Raisman got her fair share of further recognition for being "the other returnee".

* Creator/{{HBO}} has launched several popular shows in the 2010s, but all of them have languished in the colossal shadow of the pop-cultural phenomenon that is ''Series/GameOfThrones''.



* A similar case to "Uptown Funk!" happened with "The Hanging Tree" by James Newton Howard featuring Creator/JenniferLawrence from ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart1''. Despite being the lead artist, Howard was completely overshadowed by Lawrence, to the point that even ''Billboard'''s articles on the song's chart run used titles such as "Jennifer Lawrence Debuts on Hot 100" and barely made Howard a footnote. Since Lawrence is an A-list celebrity actress and Howard is a movie composer not even as known as the likes of Music/JohnWilliams and Music/HansZimmer, this was inevitable.

* Jack Butler, the original writer, editor, and promulgator of the EvilOverlordList is said to have been damned surprised to find that his list had been copied, copyrighted, and "made famous" by Peter Anspach. Butler has -- by way of a successful lawsuit -- regained control over his creation, but the damage is pretty much done. If people attach a creator credit to the EvilOverlordList, they invariably think of the man who copyrighted it, not the man who actually created the thing.
