  • Tidus is arguably this in Final Fantasy X, his plight to return to his world becomes a subplot while the main plot centers on Yuna, and her goal to save the world by defeating Sin, all from Tidus' point of view.

Examples Are Not Arguable

Does he meet the criteria for the trope or not?

Is he a First Person narrator? If so, say so.

It he a character other than the protagonist? If so, say so.

What is this trope if it's third person rather than first person?

If it is third person, than it isn't this trope.

Basically, in a third person narration, the narrator is always someone other than a character, so the third person narrator can't be either the main character or a peripheral character.

Late reply, but a third-person protagonist who is less interesting than other characters is suffering from Designated Protagonist Syndrome.
