Most works have a main character or a set of main characters who are supposed to be the main focus of the story. But sometimes this doesn't work. An actor might give such a set of performances that he or she will dominate whatever scene they're in; the creator might have such a connection, conscious or unconscious, with a character or group that that he or she forgets that they have an incredibly diverse and powerful cast ; or the characters that supposedly should have the focus might just be uninteresting.
If left unchecked, this may lead fans to complain about how They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plotlet the less fantastic characters fall behindnever did anything with Hufflepuff Houseand Jossed everyone's ships. This trope can, in fact, overlap with the Creator's Pet or Replacement Scrappy.

May become a Breakout Character if they are adored by the audience. See also Adored by the Networkfor spotlight-stealing shows, or Poorly Disguised Pilot if the squad consists of new characters that are never seen again.
See also Spotlight-Stealing Crossover for crossover works, when its characters or elements from one particular work that are given more prominence over other works in the crossover. In Fan Fiction circles, Mary Sues are usually deliberately created as this.

Part of Team Spring, she was already introduced as being the most active out of the group and the series eventually broke off into a mini-arc revolving around a disease that Hana catches and needed to be cured. A lot of emphasis was eventually put on her again when it was not only revealed to some of the Teams that she got into the Project through nepotism, but also when she was thought to be dead.
