* One of the recurring ideas in ''{{ComicBook/Alias}}'' is that nobody actually cares about [[{{ComicBook/Jewel}} Jessica Jones]]--that she slips through the cracks of the Marvel universe. When she is abducted for eight months, no one notices.

* Many a WestCoastTeam exists in the ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comic.



* The ''Mighty Mutanimals'' were a spinoff second-stringer team for ''ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures''.



* ''Series/StargateSG1'' had its WestCoastTeam in '''another galaxy''' in ''Series/StargateAtlantis''. This was lampooned in SG-1's "200", when [[PuppetPermutation Puppet Hammond]] complains that the chevrons aren't spinning. (''Atlantis''' stargate was rooted to the floor and did not spin.)

* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' gathers supporting characters from both ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' and ''Series/TheFlash2014'' and sends them off on their own adventure.

** There is also a third team, the ''ComicBook/GreatLakesAvengers'', also known as the Lightning Rods, the Great Lakes Comicbook/{{X-Men}}, the Great Lakes Champions, and the Great Lakes Initiative. They're based in Wisconsin to play off the stereotype that "FlyoverCountry" is a boring place, and are basically a [[JokeCharacter joke team]] made of all FunPersonified characters with powers of ''apparently'' [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway dubious]] value, [[WeakButSkilled but which can be made good use of through teamwork]]. Their most famous member is ComicBook/SquirrelGirl, well-known for defeating SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom, ComicBook/{{Thanos}} and SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} on separate occasions.

This trope is related to serialized media. If it occurs in a self-contained story, see HeroOfAnotherStory and HufflepuffHouse.

* ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' is sort of a WestCoastTeam to the entire MarvelUniverse; they're very specifically placed in Los Angeles, where there wasn't much super-anything activity. In SecretInvasion, the Skrull empire actually lampshades this, thinking that conquering the West Coast will be a cake-walk compared to the hero dense East Coast. Unfortunately for them the X-Men had recently relocated to San Francisco. And SpeakOfTheDevil...

** In the decade of the 2000's, the main ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' team (comprised mostly of former members of ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'') had relocated to the West Coast (SanFrancisco), so when a group of former Titans (mostly members from the 1980's) briefly reassembled in 2008 as another [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teen_Titans#Titans_.28vol._2.2C_2008.E2.80.932011.29 Titans]] team (headquartered in UsefulNotes/{{New York|City}}), they were humorously referred to (by fans) as "Titans East". There was another group actually named "Titans East", just one year before that, but they were a villain team composed of enemies/counterparts to the actual Teen Titans.

* [[RobLiefeld Rob Liefeld's]] ''ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}'' had a "Home" team and an "Away" team. Their premiere issue infamously featured stories concerning both teams, but... how to put this... One story is upside-down relative to the other? The "Away" team's story is read by flipping the book over and reading from what would normally be the back cover.
