** Even after [[spoiler:getting killed off again and actually staying gone for most of a season this time (death doesn't always stick in the ''Supernatural'' universe)]], he's still getting as much attention from fans and reviewers alike as the two main characters.

* Based on marketing, you would think Creator/DrewBarrymore was the main character of ''Film/{{Scream|1996}}'', when in reality her character [[spoiler:dies several minutes into the movie.]] Despite this, she even received top billing on some promotional material (she was credited toward the end as "And Drew Barrymore" in the actual film).[[note]]She ''was'' originally cast as the lead, Sidney, but due to scheduling issues she had to take the smaller role of Casey instead[[/note]] This was a marketing gimic since they were paying homage to ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' by killing off the supposed main character early on, shocking audiences.

* This can happen with Website/YouTube's "related videos" service. Most times the "recommended for you" video will be something you watched ages ago and don't care to revisit. This can be rather annoying if you watched one [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Nostalgia Critic]] video out of curiosity and the site keeps trying to get you to watch it again even though you don't have any interest in his videos whatsoever. It can also base recommendations off of a video that you clicked ''by accident'' a while ago, or repeatedly recommend the same {{shipping}} video for months at a time because you watched a few non-shipping videos related to the fandom.

Or, more annoyingly, you watch a political video that's anti-X, and suddenly your "related videos" feed includes mostly pro-X videos, because the pro-X video producers use similar tags and get more views.

* ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'' stars Robin Williams in a side role. At this point, you don't need to guess who was most heavily featured in teasers - and why many assumed the film would be a wacky family comedy rather than the environmental drama it really was.

** In 1976, DC Comics released a special oversized comic titled ''Superman Salutes the Bicentennial'', in honor of the United States' 200th birthday. The book itself was actually reprints of DC's colonial-era hero Tomahawk, with Superman appearing on the cover and first two pages only.

** Then after trying again and [[BaseBreaker failing]] with [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Zoroark]] (an {{Expy}} of Lucario), the Pokémon Company noticed how popular Zekrom was, and proceeded to give it a prominent appearance in nearly ''everything'' (including as the main Pokémon in ''Manga/PokemonReBurst'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest'').

* ''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 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).

* After the ComicBook/{{New 52}} DC comics relaunch, it seems Batman Publicity is the name of the game. Not only is he a member of both the ''[[Franchise/JusticeLeagueofAmerica Justice League]]'' and the new ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational'', he's got no less than FOUR books where he's the main character (''Batman'', ''Batman: The Dark Knight'', ''Batman and Robin'' and ''DetectiveComics''). Plus tying into the Batman books are the new ''ComicBook/{{Batgirl| 2011}}'', ''ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}'', ''ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}'', ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' and ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}'' comics, plus the all new comics ''Batwing'' and ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws''. That's a lot of Bat (to be exact, thirteen issues, or ''an entire '''quarter''''' of DC's relaunched comics line).

The Creator/MarvelComics character ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} (who is of course the {{Trope Namer|s}}) is the worst offender, hands down. So he gets his own section, which may be in itself be an example of this trope. He's been so overused that his later appearances are prone to parody and LampshadeHanging. By the end of the 1990s, Wolverine had been paired up with practically every other Marvel hero in existence, all the way down to five-year-old Katie Power of ''ComicBook/PowerPack''. Twice. Why? Well, beyond his general popularity, he has a number of traits that make him the perfect storm for this:

** English literature is Creator/WilliamShakespeare, Creator/CharlesDickens, Creator/JRRTolkien and Creator/JKRowling, never mind the likes of Creator/ChristopherMarlowe (who inspired Shakespeare). France promotes itself in the Francophone as "the language of Creator/{{Moliere}}" while the cultural institutes of Germany and Spain are named after Creator/JohannWolfgangVonGoethe and [[Literature/DonQuixote Miguel de Cervantes]].


Added DiffLines:

** Creator/LeonardoDaVinci is often promoted as the ultimate embodiment of UsefulNotes/TheRenaissance based on the fact that he painted two of the most iconic paintings (Mona Lisa, The Last Supper) as well as his notebooks. In actual fact, he was BrilliantButLazy, forever procrastinating his commissions and only left few complete paintings at the time of his death, his so-called "inventions" and designs while certainly striking and ahead-of-its-time, were absolutely unworkable and certainly never had any influence when these inventions eventually went into production. As for RenaissanceMan Michelangelo was equally multi-talented (a poet, a sculptor, a painter) but he was more prolific in his different fields and more importantly ''completed his commissions'' as did the other artists of his generation (Giotto, Massacio, Ghirlandio, Tiziano, Donatello, Bramante) yet Leonardo is the SpotlightStealingSquad for 300 years of Italian cultural greatness.
** 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.
