** Pinkie Pie seems to appear on most of the promotional material for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Even moreso than Twilight Sparkle (who's suppose to be the main character). Mostly because of her bubbly personality. And she's [[PinkProductPloy pink]].

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and all of its related works in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} have this with the insanely popular [[LadyOfWar Servant]] [[JeanneDArchetype Saber]]. She (or one of her incarnations) gets top billing in almost everything related to Fate. The page image for ''LightNovel/FateZero'' (which was also the 1st promotional image released for its anime adaptation) is a perfect example: Saber is front and center in the picture and is illustrated in bright, eye-catching colors while everyone else is a mere silhouette (and she's not even the main character of that series).

* When the ''Series/TheNoddyShop'' was imported to the UK as ''Noddy In Toyland'', the BBC had a particular fondness for Johnny Crawfish out of all the puppet characters created for the show. The first two episodes they aired of the show they aired were focused on him in some matter [[note]] The first was "The Fish Story", which had a subplot about Johnny Crawfish getting a new tankmate, and the second was "The Tooth Fairy", in which he has a solo song about his first childhood experience with the Tooth Fairy.[[/note]]

* ''[[Creator/HPLovecraft Cthulhu]]'', of all things. In the original works of Lovecraft, he appeared only once, in ''The Call of Cthulhu'' (not to be confused with the [[TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu RPG based on his works]]), but has since come to be adopted as the symbol of Lovecraft, no doubt due to the work of Lovecraft's "protege", August Derleth, who did more than anyone else to help keep Lovecraft's writings in print after his death and also basically created the Franchise/CthulhuMythos. Most of the core ideas that people today would describe as being part of the "Franchise/CthulhuMythos" come not from Lovecraft at all, but Derleth's later imitative stories.
** Same applies to all of the Old Ones, really. The only Lovecraftian god that actually plays a prominent role in more than a couple of stories is Nyarlahothep. Yog-Sothoth often has a fairly important role, but usually he's just invoked in spells, rather than making an actually appearance. Azathoth gets mentioned a lot too, but never actually appears in any of Lovecraft's stories.

* In the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series, Wolverine is in almost every single installment, even ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes''. He's even in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'' ''twice'' (one with the adamantium claws and one with bone, since the metal had been removed from his skeleton at that time), with each version having different movesets (the adamantium version is based on his previous ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' appearance while the bone claw version takes after his style in ''X-Men vs. Street Fighter''). The lone exception is ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'', which seems to be entirely because of [[ScrewedByTheLawyers the whole legal kerfuffle over the Marvel movie rights]] -- and even then there are rumors that the X-Men will join the game via DLC.

* He was the most frequently featured character in the toy line for the first ''Film/XMen1'' movie, popping up no less than ''six'' times in the primary 6" assortment. The 6" line for [[Film/X2XMenUnited the sequel]] was significantly smaller, and yet still managed to include 4 Wolverine figures. Strangely enough, this was averted with the Marvel Legends figures for ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', which included Comicbook/JeanGrey, Beast, the Juggernaut and Colossus, but not Wolverine.
