* ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'': [[{{Badass}} Legolas]] gets minimal screen-time in this film, but he was an EnsembleDarkhorse in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. Three guesses who got the most coverage in all the trailers.

** The studio did the same thing for ''Film/DoctorStrange'', with one TV spot showing prominent shots of Iron Man's helmet, Thor's hammer and Cap's shield. Another TV spot took this even further by using recycled footage from ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' and ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''.

Furthermore, one TV spot (narrated by Creator/BenedictCumberbatch himself) [[ItMakesSenseInContext depicts the Avengers as dogs]] and then ending with...[[PunnyName Dogtor Strange]]. Yet ''another'' spot has Cumberbatch analyzing the injuries of the cast of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''.

Not to be [[IThoughtItMeant confused with]] the idea that ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} is [[SpotlightStealingSquad becoming the focus of the Marvel Universe]] [[NoExceptYes (although that certainly has spawned many examples of this trope)]]. Whenever Marvel wants to do without him for a while, they usually have {{SelfDemonstrating/Magneto}} rip the metal off his bones...

* NinetiesAntiHero Lobo has also been used in this way. One ''Superman'' cover had the strapline "In this issue: Lobo appears on one page!"
** As a parody of Wolverine, this is to be expected.

* The second trade paperback of DC's ''Comicbook/{{Justice}}'' miniseries has the LegionOfDoom on the cover, with SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker front and center. Except that the Joker was never ''in'' the Legion of Doom, wasn't broken out of prison when Legion member Scarecrow escaped from Arkham Asylum, and only makes cameo appearances in the rest of the series, in a PaperThinDisguise as an Amish man most of the time, and he blows up a building. None of those things have any bearing on the actual plot. The ''actual'' main villains of the series, Lex Luthor and Brainiac, are shoved off to the side behind Joker, as if to insinuate that they're supporting characters instead of the main antagonists. This may be a MythologyGag in reference to the various ''{{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}}'' series, which ''Justice'' is heavily inspired by; Joker was originally slated to be a member of the Legion of Doom, but due to a {{Creator/Filmation}} cartoon being produced at the same time getting the rights to him first, the Ace of Knaves was [[ExiledFromContinuity largely left out of]] ''Super Friends''.

* ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'': Though it is more or less par for the course, Batman's exposure in Villains Month far outshines most others. In all of his goings-on taking place in the present day, he has four villain issues, making for a total of ''sixteen'' between ''Batman'', ''Batman and Robin'', ''Batman: The Dark Knight'', and ''Detective Comics'', seventeen if ComicBook/SupermanBatman counts. The next highest amount is Franchise/{{Superman}} at eight or nine following the same rules between ''Action Comics'' and ''Superman'' as his personal goings-on. The third member of the Big Three, Franchise/WonderWoman, has only two issues in her one ongoing, less than many of the other series going on. The Batman situation would not be so jarring but for the fact that some of the villains involved in it have no connection to ''Forever Evil'' (SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker being highly publicized, but one of these), are very new to Franchise/TheDCU ([[ComicBook/NightOfTheOwls the Court of Owls]]), are just being introduced at this time (Joker's Daughter) or are actually a rogue of another member of the Batfamily (Ventriloquist III).

* Creator/JackNicholson became (at the time) the highest-salaried actor in film history for his performance as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in ''Film/{{Batman}}'' (1989), even getting a share of the film's enormous box-office take. The Warner Brothers studio promoted him as the movie's main star on posters, on videotape boxes, and in the credits of the movie itself. This extended even to DC Comics' official adaptation, which, despite being clearly titled ''Batman'', showed the Joker's face [[EvilOverlooker looming like a godlike apparition over Gotham City]], while a smaller image of Batman himself appears below.

* The SkyOne adaptation of Creator/TerryPratchett's Hogfather went to DVD with David Jason (who had probably ''minutes'' of screen time, total) front and centre, making him look like the most important character in the story. However, his character was barely necessary and most of his minutes were padded, timewasting scenes to show off the big name star. He was also used in all their advertising and his name dropped constantly in all promo material.

* Partly due to his workaholic tendencies, it was hard to escape Music/PhilCollins in TheEighties, a fact which might have contributed to his CriticalBacklash at the time. He led Music/{{Genesis}} to Top 40 success, had an even more successful solo career (''No Jacket Required'' was 1985's Grammy Album Of The Year), drummed in [[Music/LedZeppelin Robert Plant]] and Music/EricClapton's bands (he co-produced Clapton's ''Behind The Sun'' comeback album), was prominently featured in Live Aid, Knebworth 1990, the Prince's Trust concerts, the Band Aid single "Do They Know It's Christmas?", had successful duets with Phillip Bailey and Madeline Martin, penned a number of movie themes ("Against All Odds", "Separate Lives"), appeared on albums by ex-bandmate Music/PeterGabriel, Tears For Fears, Al [=DiMeola=], Music/PaulMcCartney, Howard Jones, Music/MikeOldfield and Frida (Anni-Frid Lyngstad of Music/{{ABBA}}), acted ''and'' provided songs to the film ''Buster'', guested in a ''Series/MiamiVice'' episode... you get the picture. His patent "gated reverb" drum sound[[note]]introduced, [[ThrowItIn quite by accident]] on the track "Intruder" on ex-Genesis bandmate PeterGabriel's third solo album in 1980, which Collins played drums on, then popularized with the drum fill towards the end of Phil's "In The Air Tonight" solo hit released a year later[[/note]] was a trademark of the 1980's, even on productions he was not involved in. In TheNineties it slightly cooled down, but he still had a high profile scoring ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' and ''Disney/BrotherBear'' in the latter part of the decade.

* Wrestling/KellyKelly is one of the most overexposed Divas [[StealthPun (and no, not because she used to be an exhibitionist)]]. Except for [[Characters/WWEDivas The Fabulous Moolah]], she is the only Diva currently (2011) featured in the opening montage for all WWE programming. And over the past few years, WWE's writers have dredged up one excuse after another to have her appear in segments, most infamously her fake pregnancy prank when Jerry Springer was the special guest host.

** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is no stranger to this kind of exposure either; given Doug has multiple characters, it is common for the other reviewers to get him to cameo or crossover at least once as one of these characters. Inverted too though; he's had just about every conributer on the site crossover and cameo once in his videos, which probably helps get their names out to his fans and encourage them to watch his videos. His recent videos, meanwhile, tend to be filled with skits and cameos by actors/actresses from his Demo Reel series, leading many to complain that show is starting to focus more on guest star hijinx than on actual reviews.

* UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy serves as the AlternateCompanyEquivalent of Reagan for the Democrats and left-leaning artists. Most democrat senators cite his presidency at the start of the 60s as a GoldenAge ("Camelot"), with even some of his posthumously revealed flaws (such as his incorrigible womanizing) lending him an image of a LovableSexManiac in internet videos and biographies, while films like Film/TheButler and Film/{{JFK}} and others will demonize his successors, UsefulNotes/LyndonJohnson and UsefulNotes/RichardNixon for ruining his "good work". In truth, it was JFK who, however reluctantly, committed troops into Vietnam, he was far less committed to Civil Rights than Johnson, and while many praised him for his statesmanship on the Cuban Missile Crisis, it was his incompetent handling of the Bay of Pigs invasion that led to that incident to begin with, not to mention that it was Kennedy who passed the controversial and widely criticized Cuban Embargo. His spectacular ConspicuouslyPublicAssassination and the [[WhoShotJFK debates surrounding it]] has ironically done more to preserve his memory, preventing him from facing the backlash to the initially popular UsefulNotes/VietnamWar that his successors faced as well as his slippage into increasingly ill health that he had spent a lot of effort to cover up for the public. He's become in effect a legendary figure in the age of mass media.

** Gustav Eiffel was primarily a structural engineer yet he supplied his name to the [[EiffelTowerEffect Eiffel Tower]], even if the iconic design of the monument was the work of two employees for his firm, Maurice Koechlin and Émile Nouguier, who let's face it you just heard about them on this page. Eiffel is also associated with the UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty, even if the designer of the statue was the sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi. Eiffel is a genius and innovator in his field of course, but the people who created the look of his famous works end up being overshadowed by him.
