** 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 Doctor Doom, ComicBook/{{Thanos}} and SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} on separate occasions.

** Also, the 'side-characters get their own team' idea is found in ''ComicBook/{{X-Factor}},'' first consisting of the original five X-Men after they hadn't been with the team for a while, and later (and ever since) consisting of second-stringers.

* Long before Major League Baseball uprooted excess teams from the New York Metro to California, there was (and still is) the Pacific Coast League. There was talk in the late 40's/early 50's of promoting it to be a third "major" league, but it ended up being the uppermost minor league (and today is one of three leagues classed as AAA, one step below the majors).
* Before the National Hockey League, there was the Pacific Coast Hockey Association, and later the Western Canada Hockey League; the two merged in 1924 before folding in 1926, dispersing their players eastward to the [=NHL=]. The [=PCHA=] produced the first American teams to compete for the Stanley Cup, the Portland Rosebuds and the Seattle Metropolitans (the latter won the Cup in 1917). The [=NHL=] would not expand west of Chicago (save for a one-season experiment in St. Louis) until 1967. By then, the Western Hockey League[[note]]a minor pro league not related to the current Canadian major junior circuit [[NamesTheSame of the same name]][[/note]] was considered a threat to become [[TheRival a rival major league]], but it never happened (instead the World Hockey Association sprung up a few years later).

* There's even a West Coast League in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. They're apparently based near Sacramento. The heroes on the team include the California-esque names Hollywood, Beach Bunny, and Valley Girl.

One historic example is UsefulNotes/{{the Roman Empire}}, which became so expansive that they briefly experimented with having four Emperors at once, with two (a senior Augustus and a junior Caesar) serving in the New York Metro to California, there Eastern and Western halves of the Empire. While the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrarchy Tetrarchy]] didn't last, the Empire was (and still is) eventually split into the Western Roman Empire (centered on UsefulNotes/{{Rome}}) and the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as the UsefulNotes/ByzantineEmpire, centered on [[UsefulNotes/{{Istanbul}} Constantinople]].
* Prior to the advent of modern communications technology, large militaries were known to organize themselves along geographic commands. For example, during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the US Navy had the United States Pacific Fleet and the United States Atlantic Fleet, which very rarely had any reason to cooperate in any tactical or operational way. There was also a United States Asiatic Fleet, but it suffered heavy losses in the onset of America's involvement in the conflict, and its remaining ships were absorbed into

* The original ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' had the Teen Titans West (pictured) and later the Titans L.A. Later volumes had the main team set in California, with the spin-off group now being the Titans East. There were even plans for a solo Titans East series drawn by Creator/RobLiefeld, but it never saw the light of day.

* In ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'', the events of the game results in the dimensional barrier between the ghost world and the living world being pushed back, meaning that Rookie won't be needed in New York City, but is offered management of a Ghostbusters branch in another city.

* 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.)
