In works of fiction, it often seems like the world revolves around the Main Characters, that nothing interesting happens unless one of them is in the middle of it. And sometimes that’s true; sometimes the main cast are so important that nothing big can happen without their involvement. But other times, it’s not that the Main Characters are the only ones that stories happen to; it’s that we only see the stories that happen to the Main Characters.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })It turns out the supporting characters have their own adventures going on off-screen, where they’re the stars and the Main Characters only make cameo appearances. These characters are the Heroes of Another Story: we may not see much of their adventures, but it adds something to the fictional world if we know these people continue to lead interesting lives even when the Main Characters aren’t around.
On occasion, we'll see one of these characters get A Day in the Limelight and they'll become The Protagonist for an episode. This often makes the real cast the Hero of Another Story for the episode, as they'll be off on their own adventures in the meantime. Alternatively, a P.O.V. Sequel might be done to tell the same story from their perspective.
Another Side, Another Story is a subtrope, where you actually get to play the other stories, but not before you unlock their heroes first.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Compare Supporting Leader. Naturally, this will result when someone encounters the main character(s) of another series via Crossover or a Poorly Disguised Pilot. See also Little Hero, Big War, for settings that often have a bunch of heroes of other stories. See also Superman Stays Out of Gotham for cases where the main characters have powerful allies who are busy dealing with problems of their own. Depending on how well written the character is they could become an Ensemble Dark Horse. When these sorts of characters are only hinted at, see Unknown Character. The villainous inverse would be Villain of Another Story.
Compare Lower-Deck Episode, where minor characters get a brief chance to shine, or Spin-Off, where the character gets an entire series devoted to them.

Sherlock writers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat mentioned in the commentary for "A Study in Pink" that they cast Rupert Graves because he played the character of DI Lestrade as though he could be this to Sherlock and Watson.

Goblin Slayer plays with this in that Goblin Slayer and his party are the "another story". The true heroes of the story are led by Hero, a young adventurer who has been crossing paths with Goblin Slayer since he saved her hometown from goblins.

Simon Petrikov on Adventure Time was a Badass Bookworm who survived a nuclear apocalypse, became a Parental Substitute to a half-demon little girl in the aftermath of said apocalypse (instilling in her the desire to be a protector of humanity for years to come), and fought a constant mental battle to resist the corrupting influence of the enchanted crown that allowed him to survive. Unfortunately, the show takes place centuries after he eventually lost that fight, so most of the cast only knows him as the rather crazy and pathetic Ice King.

Pact stars Blake and Rose Thorburn, the same person born as different genders, who inherit their familial heritage of property, books on demon-summoning, and the karmic debt of seven lifetimes worth of monstrous deeds. Early on they meet Maggie Holt, a teenaged goblin binder who's dealing with a prophecy that demands she experience three rounds of "blood and darkness and fire" in return for her family's lives. Though they occasionally assist one another, Maggie feels compelled to deal with her problems her own way-after helping the Thorburns defeat the Incarnation of Conquest, she remarks that being the side character isn't really her thing.

Worm:
While the adventures of the Undersiders are the main focus, Faultine's crew, a group of superpowered mercenaries, crops up from time to time pursuing their own goals, and interludes focusing on them tell of their investigation into Cauldron independent of the main plotline.
Likewise, the Travelers. To the point of getting an entire arc devoted to them.
Word of God has stated that the Las Vegas Protectorate and the Thanda regularly battle S-Class threats whose abilities are either too subtle or potentially panic-inducing to be publicized.

From the Earth to the Moon:
The series was produced by director Ron Howard and lead actor Tom Hanks from Apollo 13, retelling the story of NASA and the different missions going to the moon. The episode focusing on Apollo 13 was this, as instead of showing the astronauts (as the film had already done that) it instead focused on the media's coverage on the incident.
Also, the episode "The Original First Wives Club", about the wives of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo astronauts and what they had to put up with, handle on their own, and do as wives of astronauts, shone a spotlight on women who were, in their own way, just as heroic as their husbands.

In Silent Hill: Downpour, the Full Circle ending implies that Howard Blackwood, JP Sater, and DJ Bobby Ricks were all Heroes of their own stories, but failed and became stuck in Silent Hill limbo as a result. Anne Cunningham plays this trope the most straight: every time Murphy encounters her she looks more rough than before, as she is also enduring the same sort of nightmares and monsters, and she even has a final boss she has to face: Murphy himself.

The main cast of The World Ends with You are this in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
Kingdom Hearts has a lot of these, since it's a Massive Multiplayer Crossover of Disney and Square Enix characters.
While Sora is undoubtedly the overall main character of the series, the Big M himself qualifies for this as he's the wielder of the Kingdom Key D, the Keyblade of the Realm of Darkness - the equal and opposite to the Kingdom Key, the Keyblade of the Realm of Light which is the Weapon of Choice of Sora. In addition to that fact, certain games in the series in the series reveal he's had a whole host of adventures earlier than the very first game, with some taking place WAY before he ever picked up his first Keyblade.

Ranma ½:
Pansuto Taro. The only character he has any connection to (or wants any connection with) in the cast is Happōsai. As such whenever he appears his plot is at a right-angle to the rest of the series, and the appearance of any of the regulars seems like it's contractually mandated.
Also Ryōga, with his terrible sense of direction that's led to him wandering all over the world, and his humorously unrequited crush on his rival's fiancée.

In the final stage of the Nibelungenlied, the last survivors of the besieged Burgundians are at last taken out by the retinue of the Gothic king Dietrich of Bern (not Bern in Switzerland, but Verona in Italy). Dietrich, the mythical version of king Theoderic the Great, and his followers Hildebrand et al. literally are the heroes of a whole different cycle of legends and stories, so the decision to bring him in not only was an early example of a "cross-over", but also served to enhance the standing of Gunther and Hagen.

On Arrow, John Constantine fills this role, implying that his adventures haven't ended just because his series was cancelled. When someone asks why Constantine can't help with their latest mystical problem, Oliver explains that currently Constantine is in Hell. Literally. No more details are given on the subject. Another episode mentions Christopher Chance a.k.a. the Human Target is in another country, again no details are given.

Captain Erika Hernandez of the Columbia in Star Trek: Enterprise.
Another example from Enterprise is Shran. They run into him several times, and he tends to take the focus when he does appear, because he's always got his own problems. He even gets to swoop in and save the Enterprise in one episode.
The writers were even planning on making Shran a main character if the show got a fifth season. This is probably why they destroyed his ship in the fourth season. That pretty much ended his story and forced him to join the main story.
The Enterprise that became a generation ship had plenty of adventures after the crew went back in time. No wonder the Xindi accused the main timeline's Enterprise of having sister ships (before any were completed).
There's also Daniels, who fights in the Temporal Cold War to protect the Federation.
TOS tended to suggest that the other Constitution-class starships generally did have their own 'only ship in the sector' and 'stumbled upon a dangerous mystery while exploring' incidents off-screen whenever other Constitution-class starships showed up. No specific individual served the Hero of Another Story role well, though.
Spock became the hero of another story on TNG when he dedicated his life to leading an underground dissident movement on Romulus to reunite the Vulcan and Romulan people.
Deep Space Nine is itself being "Another Story", given that it takes place during the time of The Next Generation and, when that ends, Voyager. It just focuses on a different cast of characters.
Admiral Ross is this within Deep Space Nine itself, in that he is a competent (somewhat) admiral who actually does something useful, so Sisko doesn't have to do all alone. Also we have Martok, who flies attack runs against the Dominion.
Also Dukat, during his time as a guerilla on a stolen Klingon bird-of-prey. Until his yet another Face–Heel Turn, that is.
In the episode Apocolypse Rising the character's attempting to prove that Gowron is a changeling mole, infiltrate a Klingon awards ceremony. Naturally this is a gathering place of heroes from another story.
Quark and Rom's mother, Ishka. She is seen challenging the degrading treatment of females on Ferenginar, is a genius businesswoman, secretly becomes the consort of the Grand Nagus and effectively takes over running the entire Ferengi Alliance, but is only seen when she becomes a problem for Quark.
Deep Space Nine also introduced Sloan and the agents of Section 31 (though many fans disagree whether they can be considered "heroes").

In Haven, Audrey, Nathan, and Duke eventually meet other people who help protect the town from the Troubles like Dwight Hendrickson (the guy who cleans up disasters and fight scenes to keep the public in the dark about the Troubles) and Claire Callahan (the shrink who helps people recover and deal with the Troubles).

Admiral Hamish Alexander, Earl of White Haven, from the Honor Harrington series. He is already an admiral when the series begins, and thus spends most of his time commanding large fleet actions that are analyzed in exhaustive detail by the main characters after the event. Probably the first notable instance of this is the Third Battle of Yeltsin, a spectacular Manticoran victory that was critical to the opening phases of the war — which we never see.

In Starlancer, the player actually plays this role. Especially in the beginning, the player's team of misfits is largely unknown while established aces like Klaus Steiner are often mentioned on TV. It is not until much later in the game that the player is treated as an equal.
The news reports certainly help to make the player feel like there's a devastating war on, instead of a series of small engagements. A war that would last another 100 years.

Themistocles from 300: Rise of an Empire could be considered a Hero of Another Story for the original film, as, historically speaking, he was defending the waters near Thermopylae while Leonidas led the ground defense. Likewise, Leonidas is mentioned in passing when Themistocles visits Sparta (the infamous "This! Is! Sparta!" scene having taken place just before he got there, and is away consulting the oracle when Themistocles shows up.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gives this treatment to Phil Coulson, a character who previously appeared in a secondary role in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers.
Agents of SHIELD has now generated a few Heroes of Another Story of its own. Any SHIELD agent who survived the events of the first two seasons but didn't join either HYDRA, Team Coulson, or a neutral third party like Stark Industries or the CIA counts (named examples include Mike Peterson, Agent Weaver and the other surviving members of "The Real SHIELD", who are presumably still off doing SHIELD-y stuff somewhere). The biggest examples, though, are Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter, new leads introduced in Season 2 who eventually depart for their own spinoff, Marvel's Most Wanted - though it's been cancelled and re-ordered so many times now it's hard to say whether we'll ever see these adventures on-screen or not.

The Big Lebowski, since The Dude's involvement in most of the ongoing plots is tangential, whether the struggle between Maude and the eponymous Big Lebowski over his embezzlement (and Maude's subsequent quest to find a "sperm donor" to get her pregnant), Jackie Treehorn's dispute with Bunny Lebowski (which kickstarts the plot due only to the incompetence of Treehorn's hired thugs), or the private detective's struggle to return "Bunny" to her family back east. Inverting this trope, The Dude is the hero of the story of the bowling league and his team's struggle against "Da Jesus", but we never get to see how that turned out.

Odin Sphere:
Ingway has an important ongoing plot that is as critical to the main story as those of the five playable protagonists. Despite this, his lack of a Psypher (the unique magical weapons that the playable characters wield and that basic gameplay revolves around), and his ultimate fate as one of the final bosses mean that we only ever see some of what he's up to whenever he shows up in a given character's chapter. His status as this is so prominent that he was briefly considered to be Promoted to Playable in the game's Updated Re-release until it was decided that doing so would unnecessarily complicate things.
This applies to the playable protagonists in general. When you play as one character, the other characters show up from time to time as either allies, enemies, or even lovers.

Lyrical Nanoha:
Major Genya Nakajima, commander of Ground Forces Unit 108. There to lend additional assistance when the heroes need help on an investigation, or to provide a Red Shirt Army to protect against The Siege while the heroes go off to handle the named villains.
Chrono Harlaown starts out as one of the main characters but becomes a stronger and stronger version of this trope as the series goes on, culminating in his apparent leadership of a large portion of the TSAB's Navy but barely being a part of the story in StrikerS.
Inspector Acous, also of StrikerS, likewise gives the impression of staring in his own story; which only briefly intersects with the main characters despite having the same bad guys. Ditto for Sister Schach, who apparently teams up with Acous about half way through the series.

Can happen in normal gameplay in Grand Theft Auto V. The three protagonists (Michael, Trevor, and Franklin) usually only work together when hanging out as friends or during missions, but there are chances—however slim—that a protagonist might actually cross paths with one or both of the other protagonists doing something else, independent of the player's control. However, there's a lot of land, sea, and air to travel on, so the chances of the protagonists meeting each other by accident are usually very slim.

Naruto:
Gaara was introduced during the Chunin Exams. One can only imagine the story to how he went from the repentant Dark Magical Guy to the most loved man in his home village.
There are also at least 3 other teams that we rarely see in the show, and they're all implied to be out fighting their own battles offscreen.
Also Killer Bee, who was hated/feared as a child (due to having the 8-tails inside him) and is now a considered a hero in his village.
Or even Kakashi during the 12 years in between Naruto's birth and the start of the story. We know that he went from being an undoubtedly heartbroken, traumatized teenager to a relatively well adjusted adult who is highly respected within the village. How did he become this man after losing everyone he loved? Why did he quit ANBU?
Fortunately for fans, the anime did run an arc detailing the life of Kakashi's missing years.
Hanabi, Hinata's younger sister, actually got a two episode anime-exclusive arc dealing with how she came to be the heiress to the Hyuga Clan. Parts of the story are actually flashbacks to earlier episodes (such as the Chūnin Exam arc) retold from Hanabi's perspective.

In Darkwing Duck, DuckTales (1987)' Gizmo Duck made many appearances as a hero who had much better adventures and publicity. There were other heroes introduced in the show, including his mystical girlfriend Morgana and the aquatic Neptuna. Eventually, they formed the Justice Ducks.
Speaking of Ducktales, Ducktales 2017 has made a minor Running Gag out of Launchpad's offscreen adventures with his exes, which we only ever get to see the beginning and aftermath of.

Meta Guy Abed sees his life as a collection of tropes. In one episode he remarks that "we did lean on that pretty hard last week. I could lie low for an episode." He doesn't have many lines in the rest of the episode but he can be seen in the background of another scene delivering a baby, which gets a call back in the next season when Troy asks if he just always has his own little adventures, which include ticking off a list of the "quintessential list of college experiences," a list of college film tropes. In another episode we learn he became the mask during a trip to the set of Cougar Town and had several imaginary adventures. Presumably, other characters like Annie's Boobs have active off-camera lives.
There's another study group on campus that apparently features Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Starburns.
Troy Barnes becomes this in Season 5 after he leaves Greendale to sail around the world with Levar Burton.
Later, in Season 6, Shirley Bennett also leaves and moves to LA to solve crimes along with an unnamed detective who's lost both his wife and the use of his legs.
Todd is apparently a war hero.
Lampshaded, frequently: overheard remarks from classmates include such gems as “We almost had a class that wasn't about them” and "Do you remember the time they went fishing?"

The DC Animated Universe was fond of this, especially when it entered the Justice League Unlimited era.
The pilot for JLU, "Initiation", sets the stage as Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Supergirl and Captain Atom go on a mission to a fictional North Korean Expy country. Green Arrow just wanted to go home but got dragged into the story because all the other heroes were off doing other missions, and he needed a ride.
Subsequent episodes would often include J'onn J'onzz or Mister Terrific at the monitor watching and directing various heroes around the globe doing all sorts of heroic stuff that had nothing to do with that episode's plot, especially if said plot was set primarily on the Watchtower itself.
"The Greatest Story Never Told" focuses on the glory hog Booster Gold who is busted down to directing pedestrians to safety while the rest of the League fight the Dark Lord Mordru, who is strong enough to take them all and an obviously awesomely powerful villain, and the first "Omega-Level" threat the League comes up against. We hardly get to see any of it. Booster's own story however ends up seeing him saving the world from a black hole and getting the girl while the other heroes are too busy fighting. He gets berated by an injured Batman at the end for abandoning his post.
"Patriot Act" involves a crazed general giving himself super-powers to battle the League because he sees this group of superhumans, lording over them in a space station, as a potential threat to national security. He calls out Superman for a fight, but Shining Knight tells him that Superman is fighting to save a planet from an unspecified crisis, and that all the other genuine superhumans are all out doing other stuff. He ends up having to face Green Arrow and an assortment of lesser known "normal" heroes, eventually including reserve members the Crimson Avenger (who, basically, just has a gun) and Arrow's ex-sidekick Speedy (who, naturally, is just an expy of GA himself), the only back-up available. This is the closest either two get to spending a day in the limelight, and Avenger doesn't even get dialogue while Speedy is never seen again, and that was his debut.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (IDW):
While the mane six were dealing with the Changelings, Spike and Princess Celestia were fighting off a horde of giant, magic cockatrices in Canterlot. Also, Princess Luna makes a small cameo at the end holding a map of Manehatten, implying she may have been the one to deal with the giant magical marshmallow pony that Celestia mentioned (or tried to seeing how she's lost).
After her Heel–Face Turn in the show, Trixie now wanders Equestria having adventures and helping others, occasionally meeting and teaming up with the Mane Six.

Acting Chief Engineer Jacob Temple would have made a good protagonist for a Dead Space DLC. The only real difference between him and Silent Protagonist Isaac Clarke is that Isaac's girlfriend was in Medical - Jacob's was in hydroponics. Through the game, you find logs on the same path as Isaac's, with Temple literally doing all the things that Isaac does, only failing. But, hey, at least he found his girlfriend alive. Their murder comes off as a genuinely tragic moment, despite the fact that you never interacted with either of them.
Lexine Weller from the DLC Severed does not encounter Isaac Clarke at any point in either of the first two games, despite having her incredibly important storyline due to her immunity to the effects of the Marker and managing to survive both of the Necromorph outbreaks Isaac was present for.

There are so many characters in Harry Potter that would make good protagonists:
Nymphadora Tonks. She's probably just slumming in this series; surely she is off having awesome Auror adventures at other times.
Snape is of particular notability, in that he is so deeply involved with the story that Word of God confirms that the books are just as much his story as Harry's. Appropriately, Harry's younger son is named after him.
Nicolas Flamel probably would have a pretty interesting story to tell, considering that he lived for more than 650 years.
Neville is an interesting case, because it could have been his story had Voldemort made different choices. As it stands, there's an entire alternate Power Trio in Deathly Hallows (Neville, Luna and Ginny) with enough stories to take up an entire novel.
The previous generation characters (Lily, Snape and the Marauders) had more than enough high drama to support their own series. Plus, the epilogue gives us the tantalizing hint of a whole new generation headed for Hogwarts. It's not surprising that novel-length Marauder-era and next-generation fanfics are so common.
The Order of the Phoenix, a resistance group that fights Voldemort. Both the past Order (which disbanded before the beginning of the series) and the present incarnation are alluded to having many offscreen adventures that we never hear about. The past Order in particular could easily have its own book series.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has a couple of references to Neville, Luna, and Ginny Weasley leading the anti-Voldemort resistance in Hogwarts while the Power Trio are roaming the country looking for horcruxes.
Albus Dumbledore was apparently the Harry Potter of his day — his most famous feat was his defeat of the previous Dark Lord before Voldemort, Predecessor Villain Gellert Grindelwald, in what is regarded as the greatest wizard's duel in history. Grindelwald also happened to be his Evil Former Friend, First Love, and (since Dumbledore swore off love after him) the love of his life. Deathly Hallows briefly touches on his past, and the Fantastic Beasts films will cover his conflicts with Grindelwald.
Newt Scamander only gets name dropped once or twice as the author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, one of Harry's First Year text books. He's described briefly in the prologue when said book was published in real life, but otherwise he's barely elaborated as a character. Years later, Newt is given his own story in a series of films named after his book, having all sorts of adventures involving several of the creatures featured in the Fantastic Beasts book, some 70 years before the events of the main series. Oh, and it turns out he had several run-ins with Grindelwald.

Discussed and lampshaded in one of the Aubrey-Maturin books by Stephen Maturin and Jagiello, right after Jagiello loses his grip on a ship's mast, narrowly avoids the deck, plunges into the sea, and is pulled out roaring with laughter: in a bit of metafictional humor, Jagiello jokingly says that the hero of the story never dies in such a unspectacular fashion, and that he considers himself to be the hero of his own story.

This is discussed in Fifth Business. Dunstan Ramsay isn't even the hero of his own story; instead, he (according to Liesl) is destined to be the vital supporting character to everyone else. Strictly speaking, the hero of the story is the successful, handsome Boy Staunton, but the narration only checks in on him now and again.

Any named character from The Dresden Files. Special credit goes to:
Carlos Ramirez, professional badass and Harry's best friend on the Wardens. The regional commander of the Wardens on the West Coast, he gets into almost as much trouble as Harry.
Michael Carpenter's exploits against the Denarians could make a fantastic series on their own.
Sanya. As of Small Favor, he is the only active Knight of the Cross, which means that he is single-handedly patrolling the world and putting down various supernatural threats. This is a normally a job for three people, but, as Harry notes, he seems to be handling it with aplomb.
Morgan. Come on, we get to hear the stories about how he nuked a shapeshifting demi-god of pure evil, and cut his way through the entire Red Court, fully intent on dueling a being that has Odin matched for metaphysical muscle.
Karrin Murphy, and the rest of S.I. After the first few books Harry mentions that S.I. has gotten good enough at handling minor supernatural threats that they don't call him in as much.
The Alphas. College kids turned werewolves, dealing with the troubles of young adulthood by day, wolf-shaped vigilantes by night.
John Marcone counts as well. The short story "Even Hand" is told from his perspective, and lays ground for potential future narratives. "Aftermath" informs us that, since the death of Harry Dresden, Marcone and his people have repelled several attempts by the Fomor and other bad guys to infiltrate the city.
Thomas Raith, Harry's half brother provides vital back up on a number of occasions, but we eventually find that he's a member of the Venatori, and has been fighting the Oblivion War off and on for years.
Elaine Mallory, who starts up a similar Wizard for Hire business in Los Angeles.
Molly Carpenter, Harry's apprentice, whose Coming of Age story is going on in the background. After she takes on more responsibilities it's implied her adventures get even stranger and more dangerous.

In Dog Days, most of the plot involves non-fatal sports-like "war" (where literally Nobody Can Die) and the Ordinary High-School Student becoming "the Hero" while Trapped in Another World. Two of the characters in that world, a samurai and ninja partner team; Lady Brioche and her subordinate Yukikaze; are hunters of monsters and demons. While 2 episodes of the plot deal with a similar entity; even the monster that main characters fight is redeemable as opposed to the untold Darker and Edgier dealings they handle. They are polite and make gestures at helping the main characters; but it's clear they normally deal with things on a totally different level; and aren't nearly using their full abilities at the games the rest of the cast are playing.

In Oblivion, from a certain point of view, you are the Hero of Another Story, with Martin being the hero of the main quest. True, you do all of the heavy lifting, including rescuing Martin to begin with, but he (as only remaining person with Septim blood) is the only one who can "close shut the jaws of Oblivion" and is remembered after the fact as the hero who sacrificed himself to cast Mehrunes Dagon out of Mundus. However, both major expansions (Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles) very much have you as the hero.

Power Rangers:
The Aquatar Rangers were this whenever they showed up in the Zordon Era. From their first appearance in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, it was made clear they had their own adventures in fighting evil.
Both the first and second Sixth Rangers of Power Rangers Zeo qualify. Trey of Triforia was the solo Ranger of his planet and his temporary successor Jason was the original MMPR Red Ranger before leaving for a peace conference in Switzerland. There is also the alien hero Auric the Conqueror.
Power Rangers Turbo: The Blue Centurian and the Phantom Ranger both appeared to have off-screen adventures before and after being introduced.
Power Rangers in Space: Andros and Zhane, the season's Red and Silver Rangers respectively, were experienced Rangers before they were joined by the Rangers from the previous season. One of their missions was what resulted in Zhane being put in a Convenient Coma. Adam from MMPR - Zeo also guest starred in one episode.
Power Rangers Wild Force: In addition to the team up with the Rangers of the previous season, the Red Ranger of Wild Force also teamed up with the Red Rangers from the previous seasons in a Milestone Celebration episode to wipe out the remnants of the Machine Empire, the villains from Zeo.
Dr Thomas Oliver, or "Tommy" as he is known to his friends and fans is this in Power Rangers Dino Thunder. His history as a Ranger was covered in the franchise's 500th episode along with a history of every previous Power Rangers team up to that point.
Any Ranger team that returns for a team-up with the current one will qualify as this.

In the Whateley Universe, there are several. Lady Astarte, the greatest superheroine of the era, is hovering around in the background, because she's the headmistress of the Superhero School the main characters go to. At Halloween, when Deathlist attacks, she takes him on single-handed and wins. There are lots of references to former battles she has fought and former superheroes she has known, because she has been superheroing since World War II. Skyhawk, one of the main superheroes of Boston, probably counts as well.

This happens several times in Final Fantasy XIV:
During Stormblood, Estinien wanders around helping people and aiding the Eorzean Alliance when needed. His story does not intersect with the Warrior of Light's except during the level 70 Dragoon quest and patch 4.56, where he saves them from Elidibus.
In Shadowbringers, Estinien reprises his role to fill in for the Warrior of Light and the Scions while they are in the First, while teaming up with Gaius to curb the production of Black Rose, an alchemical superweapon designed to halt the flow of one's aether. The two make their way to Garlemald to confront Emperor Varis, only to find Zenos in his original body striking his father down.

Both Felix and Isaac's groups assume this role at different points in the Golden Sun games. In Golden Sun (2001), Felix is on a quest with the antagonists to unleash Alchemy on the world and you hear a few people mention him and his group as you travel. In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, you take over Felix's role while occasionally hearing tales about Isaac's group as you travel. Isaac and Felix's parties finally meet at one point and they team up to finish Felix's quest.
There's also Sean and Ouranos, who you ride with on the boat across the Karagol Sea. They have unique sprites and icons, personality quirks (such as Ouranos' fear of water), and have obviously been traveling around for a while to be as strong as they are. Although they get their asses handed to them by the Kraken (Which happens to be That One Boss), they are more than capable of fighting off the other monsters that attack the ship.

In Thor: The Dark World, we learn that Asgard has been fighting marauders since the events of the last film, we get a good look at what Thor's grandfather was up to before he was born, the obligatory mentioning of the Avengers, and the Collector from Guardians of the Galaxy shows up in the mid-credits scene.

In Supergirl (2015), Supergirl is the defender of National City. Superman is busy defending Metropolis, so he's usually only mentioned, but occasionally shows up to lend Supergirl a hand.

The 501st unit gets the bulk of the action in Strike Witches in the anime, but there's a whole mess of other squadrons out there, each doing their own thing. The manga does a good job showing off these other units and what they're up to.

The kids' guardians, who, though often ignored or avoided by the main characters, show up all over the place, occasionally helping the kids from the background while engaging in their own adventures.
Not to mention fedorafreak, who only ever appears on a Twitter expy for three frames, and provides regular updates about, respectively, his choice of hats, his house burning down, The End of the World as We Know It, his own journey through another session of Sburb and, finally, his death, possibly on a Quest Bed (which would allow his ascension to God Tier).

In Castle Hangnail, two of the castle's minions are a talking goldfish and an animate voodoo doll named Pins. The goldfish reflects on Pins's heroic journey crossing the desert and fighting monsters, all carrying the goldfish in a plastic bag.

Every character in Arkham Horror starts this way. They all have detailed backgrounds with them ranging from escaping cultists, hunting monsters, looking for lost loved ones, etc. The only thing they have in common once the game starts is that they ultimately have the same endgame.

Whether you can call them heroes is debatable, but the various protagonists in the Grand Theft Auto franchise often serve as this to each other, as each focuses game on the exploits and story of a different character, but they'll often (briefly) cross paths with each other.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The protaganist, C.J. sees his insane girlfriend run off with a quiet racing competitor. Said quiet man is the main character, Claude, in the (chronologically later, though earlier released) Grand Theft Auto III.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories focuses on Victor Vance, a character that died in the prologue of the original Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
The main story of Grand Theft Auto IV centers around Niko Bellic. The two following DLC releases, collectively titled "Episodes from Liberty City", focus on biker Johnny Klebitz and Luis Fernando Lopez, bodyguard and hitman for club owner Tony Prince. The three occasionally run across one another, but their stories are largely independent. All three are together in a single location only once, during a diamond deal they've all been brought into by various circumstances (which was foreshadowed by the achievement for completing the diamond mission in Niko's story, called "Impossible Trinity").
Can happen in normal gameplay in Grand Theft Auto V. The three protagonists (Michael, Trevor, and Franklin) usually only work together when hanging out as friends or during missions, but there are chances—however slim—that a protagonist might actually cross paths with one or both of the other protagonists doing something else, independent of the player's control. However, there's a lot of land, sea, and air to travel on, so the chances of the protagonists meeting each other by accident are usually very slim.

New Canton Runner 5, first seen in the Canton-perspective Race missions from Zombies, Run!, got Put on a Bus to London at the start of Season 2 to avoid confusion with the game's protagonist, the Runner 5 of Able Township. Canton 5 would go on to feature in two side missions, eventually becoming "the greatest hero in London" by doing a lot more behind the scenes than anyone knows. The player only gets to hear the full extent of Canton 5's adventures after their Bus Crash on the way home.

The Order of the Stick:
It is heavily implied that adventuring parties and Player Characters in the world are this. Nale and his adventuring party (the Linear Guild) tries to pretend they are this, claiming they are in the same dungeon on a completely different quest (although later turns out to be a lie).
Inverted at one point when the Order run into a pair of villains from another story, a dwarf and a Ninja who are trying to murder The King of Nowhere (don't ask).
Julio Scoundrél was one of the most prolific heroes of his day (in more ways than one) and serves as Elan's mentor as well as The Cavalry. He considers Tarquin to be one of his B-List villains.
Parodied with the gag character Frudu Biggens, who is on a completely unrelated quest to destroy a Ming vase with his friend Samwose.
Characters who individual party members have had assorted interactions with include Eugene Greenhilt (Roy's dad, who was an adventurer in his heyday) and Sir François (the guy Elan was Heralding before he ditched him after screwing up another one of their adventures).
One chapter depicts the formation of a party of Heroes of Another Story — at the end of the arc, various miscellaneous characters with no real connection to each other (including Haley's father, a soldier from a conquered city, and two bounty hunters that started a fight with Roy and Belkar) form a group to overthrow The Empire.
From the backstory, the Order of the Scribble were a groups of adventurers whose adventures set the foundation for the current plot.
Vaarsuvius, although a protagonist, ends up being the Hero(ine?) of Another Story while stuck on the Semi-Elemental Plane of Ranch Dressing. V won't speak of it to anyone, though, and the readers only see the aftermath.

Fallout: New Vegas has Vulpes Inculta, a spy who manages to beat the Courier to Nipton, The Strip, and The Fort, no matter how fast the Courier travels. He is involved in many covert operations, and it's implied that when you don't see him, he's wreaking havoc in NCR territory somewhere.
Any of the NCR Rangers. They have spies everywhere, even at all the Legion bases. You even meet a drug dealer who turns out to be one. Imagine how many are out there.
And finally there's Ulysses, who is gradually revealed to have visited every location explored in the DLC packs and had his own adventures there before his final confrontation with the Courier in Lonesome Road.

James Bond films sometimes feature other double-O agents,
Goldfinger. 008 never appears, but if M ever tells Bond that if he can't do the mission, someone else will, chances are 008 is that "someone else".
In The Living Daylights, 008 is said to "obey orders, not instincts", in contrast with the more headstrong Bond. We see a number of other double-O agents being picked off in a training exercise, which teases the identity of the newly recast Bond.
Octopussy and A View to a Kill start with the deaths of 009 and (off-screen) 003, respectively. Agents other than Bond, with 007 picking up the cases they were working with only the cryptic clues taken off their bodies.
Bill Fairbanks, 002, was killed before the start of The Man with the Golden Gun.
Alec Trevelyn, 006, was apparently killed in the Cold Open of GoldenEye but actually turned against MI6 as part of an elaborate revenge scheme.
In The World Is Not Enough it is mentioned that 009 was the one who shot the Big Bad prior to the events of the film.
Felix Leiter is almost always in this role, sometimes hints are dropped that his adventures are even more exciting than Bond's.
Thunderball is the only film where we see all the double-O agents in one place, at M's briefing. When SPECTRE threatens the world with nuclear bombs, M sends all the agents to different parts of the world hoping to find and disarm the bombs. Bond just happens to be the one who finds them.

Glamour Boy Shane is one of the most popular baby face wrestlers in the Caribbean, especially Puerto Rico. He merely serves as a referee for TNA, albeit, a referee few wrestlers dare to mess with. Shane was supposed to be part of a champion vs champion match when TNA became part of the World Wrestling League but it didn't pan out due to then TNA World Champion Bobby Roode's flight being canceled.

Undertale, true to form, deconstructs this through Undyne, who becomes the hero of YOUR story if you have opted to become the villain of it and pursue the Genocide route. All the characters met until her are certain she'll defeat the player if they make it that far, and her boss encounter begins with the flavor text "The heroine appears." with decidedly more uplifting music than her battle has in other routes. The fates of minor and background characters on this path play out like an extended "dark ending" for the rest of the game following her defeat.
Also, played straight with Gerson (the turtle shopkeeper) who was a hero on the monster side in the war between monsters and humans long ago. While it's stated that not a single human died during the war, so he can't have killed anybody, one is left only to imagine what he might have done to help his kind escape, considering he's the only NPC in the entire game to not only not be afraid of you, but actually taunt and trash-talk you.

In Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir, the player characters are this in relation to the Knight-Captain, the PC from the first two campaigns. (SoZ takes place during or after Mask of the Betrayer, on the opposite side of the continent.)
The original NW 2 also applies, from the party members (such as Shandra, who even has a similar background to the Knight-Captain's) to all of the major antagonists.
The hero of the original Neverwinter Nights and the hero of Shadow of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark are this to one another — Shadow of Undrentide takes place roughly around the same time as Neverwinter Nights (Hordes of the Underdark takes place a while after, but canonically has the same hero as Shadow of Undrentide).

The setting of Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! takes place in the year 2051, and the first major project the titular trio takes on is based off of the Mini-Mecha owned by their school's Robot Club, which has been active with members in the present time since the 1800s.
There are many other clubs at the school who get up to their own bizarre shenanigans and have similar obstacles to contend to. The titular club is just the one the audience is following and have only recently formed.

This is a central game mechanic in Resident Evil 2. Whoever you finish the game first with becomes the main character and hero of "Story A", and then you're free to play the other character's "Story B" and see what they had to deal with (most notably the unstoppable Tyrant T-103 who never makes an appearance in the A storyline), with the implication being they were picking up the weapons and ammo you missed and the items you had discarded once they were "no longer useful".

In the Star Trek Novel Verse, each series could be considered this to the other ones. However, Star Trek: New Frontier really plays this role. Because Peter David has sole control over New Frontier, any major events that the Excalibur cannot somehow be excused from, such as Star Trek: Destiny, are told through Broad Strokes by the other authors. Whether we actually get to read those stories depends on whether Peter David wants to write them.
Two Diane Carey novels, Dreadnaught and Battlestations are something of a Lower Decks Episode in regards to the novels. The main characters are younger Expys of the main Star Trek characters. While they do perform acts to further the plot, when they cross paths with Kirk and company, it's clear for every thing the youngsters have done, the senior officers have done 5 or 6.

Captain Marcus Walker in Freelancer is the commander of the Liberty cruiser LNS Utah. Unlike the Anti-Hero Trent, Walker is a straight shooter who takes pride in his service. He even offers to help Trent join the Liberty Navy. After helping to defend the Willard Research Station and a Liberty battleship, Walker disappears for a while, before reappearing to help Trent and the others escape from a Liberty ambush in Zone-21. It's not clear what he did while Trent was out doing his thing, but given his impressive record and his Heroic Sacrifice, it was probably something awesome. Then there's Casper Orillion, the man in charge of The Order. Actually, there are plenty of characters, including Ozu, Michael King, Lord Hakkera, and Diedrich Von Claussen, who are impressive in their own right.
Even cooler, Walker actually mentions that while they were gone, he and his crew launched guerilla attacks against Rheinland supply depots in the Border Worlds. Pity you don't get to see it.

In Captain America: The First Avenger, Cap works with an entire team of crack soldiers, spies, and even one brave millionaire Science Hero (who's none other than Tony Stark's father) who all have had their own adventures prior to meeting him. Then there is the mentioning of the Tesseract being an artifact from Asgard.

According to the two-parter "The Sontaran Stratagem"/"The Poison Sky", the Brigadier still takes assignments to Peru in his old age. After years of frustrated fans clamoring "Come on! Nicholas Courtney's not getting any younger!" he finally appeared on TV for the first time since 1989 in series 2 of The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Main protagonist Ragna the Bloodedge from BlazBlue gave himself his title after his teacher Jubei gave him a BFS and Badass Longcoat and told Ragna of their previous owner, Bloodedge. An unsung hero who, in the distant past, fought the Black Beast for an entire year, giving humanity time to learn Ars Magus and prepare to kill it, at the cost of his own life. Subverted in that Bloodedge is Ragna, sent back into the past, de-powered, and with amnesia. So he's really the same hero of the same story.
The exploits of Bloodedge, and his battle against the Black Beast, are covered in BlazBlue: Phase 0.
Naoto Kuragane is this trope all too literally. Being the Ordinary High-School Student protagonist of Bloodedge Experience, a spin-off light novel that takes place many years before the events of the main story, he is thrust into the events of Centralfiction by time-travel shenanigans.
Es is the main heroine of XBlaze and is also part of the Centralfiction cast. Except she's just a copy of the real Es.
Mai Natsume is the protagonist of Blaz Blue Remix Heart and Blaz Blue Variable Heart and finally makes her playable appearance in Centralfiction. Unlike Naoto and Es, she's hails from the same world as the other BlazBlue characters and she had her military academy adventures with Noel, Tsubaki and Makoto among others, all three being part of the series since Calamity Trigger.

Masaki Andoh is probably just being an 'extra character' whenever he features in a Super Robot Wars game (be it OG or not), as he and Cybuster was originally a stand-in for Aura Battler Dunbine. However, the Super Robot Wars Gaiden game later reveals that he's pretty much The Hero in the saga of La Gias, which is also pretty rich in backstory. This trope is lampshaded in Second Original Generations, when the OG heroes visit La Gias, and surprised with how much Masaki was treated with full respect like a real hero when otherwise he's just being your typical 'wandering kid who gets lost at times.
From the same game, Shu Shirakawa is this with the release of Dark Prison for 2nd OG as it covers what he's been doing behind the scenes during the La Gias portion of the game.

Silent Hill 2, and while we're using the term "hero" a bit loosely since pretty much everyone called to that town is screwed in the head, has Angela and Eddie, who have both been called to the town to face their inner darkness exactly like James. Angela's fate is left ambiguous and the last we see of her is her ascending a flaming staircase after essentially giving up, and Eddie turns psychotic and is killed by James in self defense.

Marvel Cinematic Universe:
In Iron Man, Agent Phil Coulson mentions, "This isn't my first rodeo" and Nick Fury bluntly states that there are other heroes out there.
In The Incredible Hulk, Tony Stark briefly appears at the end, mentioning the same other heroes that Fury told him about.
Iron Man 2 has Nick Fury, Black Widow and a hint of Thor, who are obviously having their own adventures.
Thor features Nick Fury, has a cameo by Hawkeye, the aforementioned Agent Coulson, and plenty of Asgardian warriors who have had plenty of adventures off-camera. Tony Stark even gets mentioned in a throwaway line.
In Captain America: The First Avenger, Cap works with an entire team of crack soldiers, spies, and even one brave millionaire Science Hero (who's none other than Tony Stark's father) who all have had their own adventures prior to meeting him. Then there is the mentioning of the Tesseract being an artifact from Asgard.
In Iron Man 3, the Avengers are mentioned quite a bit, War Machine has his own missions in the Middle East, and The Stinger includes a cameo by Bruce Banner.
In Thor: The Dark World, we learn that Asgard has been fighting marauders since the events of the last film, we get a good look at what Thor's grandfather was up to before he was born, the obligatory mentioning of the Avengers, and the Collector from Guardians of the Galaxy shows up in the mid-credits scene.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier introduces Sam Wilson, The Falcon, Retired Badass and a veteran of the War on Terror who used actual wings to fly rescue missions in the Middle East, before coming home and becoming a veterans' counselor. The list of people targeted by Project Insight includes Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and some fellow named Stephen Strange.
Inverted in a Marvel short where we learned what Thor did during the events of Captain America: Civil War: Nothing heroic at all, just hanging out in Australia with average sort'of every-day people.
Discussed in Doctor Strange (2016). When Strange asks who the Masters of the Mystic Arts are, Wong tells him: "While heroes like The Avengers protect the world from physical dangers, we sorcerers safeguard it against more mystical threats."
In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Yondu says his old Ravager team consisting of Stakar Ogord, Aleta Ogord, Martinex, Charlie-27, Mainframe, and Krugarr had a lot of adventures like Rocket and the Guardians.
Captain Marvel (2019) reveals that Carol Danvers had been active since the 90's, but she has been busy helping the Skrulls find a new home and then having other adventures in space.
In Avengers: Endgame, when Carol Danvers shows up to help, Rhodey demands to know where she had been and why she didn't help sooner. Carol points out there are hundreds of worlds that need help just like Earth but don't have Avengers, so those worlds are her responsibility. She later returns to space to help those worlds again and does not return until the final battle with Thanos.

The Stormlight Archive: Several. Hoid is a hero to the Cosmere as a whole (if not the Big Good), but his goals on Roshar only rarely intersect with everyone else. The interludes introduce a number of new characters who are running around on their own adventures, a few of whom are in the process of becoming Surgebinders. And of course, at the end of the second book Jasnah comes back, having escaped the ambush on the Wind's Pleasure by teleporting into Shadesmar, where she has been adventuring for months.

Though he's usually a part of the main story, Larry Fleindhart of NUMB3RS takes a trip into space in Season 3 and spends several months living in the desert in Season 6. He never gives more than very fleeting details about those experiences, but they would no doubt be interesting stories in their own right.
Megan Reeves also goes on special assignment for the latter half of season three (a case of Real Life Writes the Plot, as actress Diane Farr was pregnant). Becomes a bit of a subversion in that she seems to have come away from that feeling that she was more of a villain than a hero during that time.

Pacific Rim has the Wei Tang triplets and the Kaidanovskys, all of whom have impressive records with defeating Kaiju and defending their assigned Shatterdomes, but are sadly not the biggest heroes of this story.

Sin City will do this to the point where actual stories will intersect. For instance, in Yellow Bastard we see Marv in the background in the scene where Nancy runs off with Hartigan. They go off and have their own adventure. In Just Another Saturday Night, we see this scene from Marv's view point, lamenting that "Nancy ran off with some old guy" before going off to have his own adventure.

Fallout 4 has you run into a group of five people: Preston Garvey, Sturges, Mama Murphy, Jun Long, and Marcy Long. The four appear to have been running for a long time, and had a much larger group than the ragtag group of five left at the end. After helping them escape Concord, Preston can tell you about the minutemen, a huge plot regarding betrayal, the collapse of the minutemen, and so forth. Should you check the southern end of Quincy, you can also come across three gunners known as Tessa, Clint, and Baker. Killing them and reading the various terminals explains even more of the tragic events that led up to the five holing up in the museum you saved them from.
Kellogg's entire backstory shows him as having one heck of a bad train ride called life that ended with you and him confronting one another. The segment of the game where you find out all of this roughly takes up over ten minutes of time just to watch.
Paladin Brandis and his team had a huge streak of bad luck that resulted in him being stranded in the Commonwealth for a long time. You only arrive in the Commonwealth after he's become paranoid and nearly given up, and never learn the entirety of his story.
You meet Brian Vergil after his escape from the Institute, and he never really tells you how that went or any of the details between then and when you meet with him, although there are some clues in his old lab.

Jotheb, the ruler of the Consortium of Trau.
Post-Heel–Face Turn Crais and Talyn, during the period between them leaving Moya and her crew and meeting up with them again, were implied to be having as much adventures as the main cast did, which we only ever got to see fragments of.

After the Smallville season 6 episode "Justice", Oliver Queen's Justice League was frequently made mention of (usually by Chloe) as they travelled the world dismantling Lex Luthor's secret metahuman labs. Every so often a Leaguer (or combinations thereof) would return for a guest appearance, and during the season 9 finale multiple heroes (including those from the Justice Society) provided cameos via the Watchtower's monitors to establish Zod's threat as a global one.

Stargate SG-1
This trope used to be named after Colonel Makepeace, the leader of SG-3. Makepeace was even briefly put in charge of SG-1 after O'Neill's 10-Minute Retirement as the highest-ranking officer in SG teams — right before he was exposed as The Mole. The new leader of SG-3, Colonel Reynolds, picked up the trope after that, and held it longer than Makepeace ever did. Colonel Makepeace gets a moment when he leads an assault team composed of half a dozen SG teams to rescue SG-1 from Hathor. Of course he fails, the rescuers being rescued in turn by Bra'tac, Teal'c, and General Hammond (in one of his rare off-world trips).
You could say this is true for all of the other SG teams who are off on their own assignments, which sometimes include assisting SG-1. In the two-part episode "Heroes", SG-13 is shown off on a mission of their own.
Speaking of Bra'tac, as a leader in the Jaffa Rebellion, he can also qualify as this, as can other rebel leaders such as Ishtar.

The Cabbage Merchant from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Somehow, despite the Gaang travelling on an air bison and him being presumably on foot, he managed to arrive at places at the exact time that they did, only for them to destroy his produce.
The past Avatars who serve as spirit advisers to Aang. They've all had experience preserving balance in the world, and we see brief flashbacks to foes encountered in the past, such as Avatar Kuruk's conflict with Koh the Face Stealer, and Avatar Kiyoshi's fateful duel with Chin the Conqueror. Avatar Roku in particular plays a very important part in the backstory, being Fire Lord Sozin's former friend and the grandfather of Prince Zuko. These events have lasting repercussions that Aang ends up having to deal with at some point.
Katara and Sokka's father Hakoda, who'd been fighting in the Hundred Year War since before the start of the series.
Iroh, a firebending master previously known as one of the Fire Nation's best and most fearsome generals until his son was killed in the war. By the start of the series he's pulled a Heel–Face Turn, joins the Order of the White Lotus, and spends a great deal of time trying to reach his misguided nephew, Prince Zuko. He ends up being the closest thing the show has to a Big Good, other than Aang himself.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The protaganist, C.J. sees his insane girlfriend run off with a quiet racing competitor. Said quiet man is the main character, Claude, in the (chronologically later, though earlier released) Grand Theft Auto III.

Doctor Whooves and Assistant works a lot like this. The Doctor and Ditzy Doo's adventures run side by side with those of the main cast of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. For example, while the mane cast was heading off to fight Nightmare Moon, the Doctor and Ditzy went that way before them and fought the Manticore first. The mane cast are seen at some points, but only from the view of the Doctor and Ditzy.

In The Walking Dead's first season the protagonists meet a group of what at first they think are gangbangers who turn out to be protecting a bunch of senior citizens too fragile to be moved. We never find out what happens to them (a discarded plotline from the season two premiere reveals they were murdered, implied to be by The Governor). Likewise Morgan and his son until two seasons later.

Ada Wong tends to be this in pretty much every Resident Evil title she appears in, along with typically being one of the few characters who actually knows what's really going on. Sometimes, like in Resident Evil 6, you get to actually play her version of the story and see just how much she actually contributes to the main character's storyline without them even knowing about it.

Admiral Ross is this within Deep Space Nine itself, in that he is a competent (somewhat) admiral who actually does something useful, so Sisko doesn't have to do all alone. Also we have Martok, who flies attack runs against the Dominion.

Avalon: Web of Magic's main plot is about the forces of darkness trying to conquer all the worlds and corrupt their inhabitants. However, our protagonists run a refugee camp on Earth, so the narrative is centered there.
Zach is the last human on Aldenmor and an orphan raised by a mistwolf pack, which he was later exiled from. Although embittered by this, he remains committed to fighting the Sorceress with the help of his bonded dragon. We know this because he was the deuteragonist of one book and played only bit parts in the others.
Lorelei is one of the web's unicorn protectors and a teacher at Dalriada Academy. She shows up in the fourth book so Emily can heal the trauma of having her horn cut off, helps Emily to defeat a siren, and then...basically goes off to do her own thing.

At the end of the Band of Brothers episode "Crossroads," we meet Second Lieutenant George C. Rice of the 10th Armored Division, played by Jimmy Fallon in a cameo. Knowing that Bastogne was going to be surrounded, and knowing that the 101st was going to be really short on ammunition, Rice made nine separate trips in a jeep that was towing a trailer back and forth from a nearby supply depot to Bastogne in order to bring what ammo he could to the troops digging in against the German advance. He did this on his own volition. His last trip was technically made after the Germans had surrounded the town, and the only reason he didn't make a tenth trip was because he was specifically ordered by his CO to stand down. Rice was nominated for a Medal of Honor for his actions.

Cassius Bright, the father of the main characters of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC is apparently so badass that the Society of Ouroboros caused a crisis in Erebonia specifically so that he could be the hero of that story and not be in the way of their efforts in Liberl. Details of exactly what he had been up to can be found in one of the Star Doors in The Third.

Ménage à 3 did the same with Dillon and Sandra, who were both given starring roles in their own spin-off comics: Sticky Dilly Buns (which shows Dillon's life in his own apartment in Montreal, and actually ends up spending a lot of time on his roommates) and Sandra on the Rocks (which follows Sandra's misadventures as a model in Paris, again with a fair amount of digression onto the rest of the cast).

"Patriot Act" involves a crazed general giving himself super-powers to battle the League because he sees this group of superhumans, lording over them in a space station, as a potential threat to national security. He calls out Superman for a fight, but Shining Knight tells him that Superman is fighting to save a planet from an unspecified crisis, and that all the other genuine superhumans are all out doing other stuff. He ends up having to face Green Arrow and an assortment of lesser known "normal" heroes, eventually including reserve members the Crimson Avenger (who, basically, just has a gun) and Arrow's ex-sidekick Speedy (who, naturally, is just an expy of GA himself), the only back-up available. This is the closest either two get to spending a day in the limelight, and Avenger doesn't even get dialogue while Speedy is never seen again, and that was his debut.

Steven Universe:
There are a few flashback episodes covering the love story between Steven's dad, Greg, and his mother, Rose Quartz, from when they first met to just after his birth. The show's former supervising director Ian Jones-Quartey once joked that the series is actually the sequel to a non-existent harem anime called "No Need For Greg".
Garnet is the focus of a similar love story, only hers happened during the Rebellion for Earth and eventually is explored in "The Answer".
Rose was the first Gem to rebel against Homeworld, assembled the Crystal Gems (one can only imagine how the Debut Queue fully played out), and spent centuries protecting the Earth and learning more about its inhabitants. Even in death, her affect on the story and cast cannot be overstated.
After Steven brought Lars Back from the Dead and he joined the Off Colors, the next time Steven meets them in "Lars of the Stars," they have come to live as main characters in a sci-fi anime seemingly independent of the main plot, complete with its own title cards and established character and plot dynamics.

BioShock 2 has Mark Meltzer, the hero of the Viral Marketing storyline released before the game. The player can track Meltzer's progress through Rapture through audio diaries he leaves and eventually kills him without even thinking about it.
BioShock Infinite: The voxophones replace the audio logs for all intents and purposes. Aside from an alternate universe Booker and Elizabeth, Preston E. Downs leaves behind audio logs to document his bounty hunting of Vox Populi leader Daisy Fitzroy... and then shifts gears when he accidentally cripples a little kid. It's not known if he was backstabbed by the Vox or said kid after switching sides or became one of the major leaders of the Vox.

Mass Effect has Captain Kirrahe, a Salarian Spectial Task Group commando, who gives a rousing Patrick Stewart Speech to his squad telling them to Hold the Line and act as the distraction while Shepard and his team infiltrate the base and plant a nuke on Virmire. Throughout the mission we hear both the gunfire of their unseen battle and their radio chatter, reminding Shepard that in comparison, Shepard's mission is the easy one.
Even though Garrus rejoins the squad early on in Mass Effect 2, the fact that his activities in between 1 and 2 caused all three major mercenary bands in Omega to join forces to take him down makes it clear that he's been busy, even before this is confirmed during dialogue. His dossier in the Lair of the Shadow Broker even lampshades the fact that he's practically Shepard's equal, but is unlikely to fully come into his own as long as he's working with Shepard.
In Mass Effect 3, this extends to every surviving member of the Suicide Mission in the last game, with the exception of Garrus and Tali, who join your squad for the third time. To whit:

This occurs frequently in the works of Leiji Matsumoto: Captain Harlock and Queen Emeraldas occasionally have made either been referenced or made cameo appearances in Galaxy Express 999 and Galaxy Railways.

Fallout is home to a huge cast of characters. Some you interact with alive, others you find dead on arrival, and others you run into just as their own personal story ends. It's not uncommon to come across the corpse of a person and wonder if they were just unlucky and got killed, or were in the process of their own journey.
The mysterious stranger leaves his footprints all over the irradiated future of America, but you never learn a concrete detail about him, although there are details scattered about such as a man who may be his son in New Vegas, or Nick Valentine from 4 commenting on seeing him "again", implying he's been trying to figure out who he is for some time. Additionally, you never know if he's helping you out or if the two of you coming in contact like this is a repetitive coincidence.
Marcus really gives this impression, being among those responsible for taking down the Enclave in Fallout 2 and reappearing in FalloutNewVegas as leader of a Super Mutant refuge.
In Fallout 3, you can find an emergency broadcast in a nearby area stating that a child is sick, and the family is holed up waiting for supplies, having escaped some kind of disaster. When you find this little bunker, you realize it's a radio with an emergency message playing on loop for an unknown amount of time. Judging by the skeletons in the room they may have been there since the war, two hundred years ago. You never really learn who the family was or how they got there either, and you never learn if they got the help they needed (although it's likely they didn't given they stayed in the bunker).
Before you board the boat to Point Lookout in the Fallout 3 DLC of that name, you meet a woman named Catherine, who asks you to find here missing daughter Nadine there. Nadine turns out to be doing fine, having her own adventures and helping the Lone Wanderer with theirs a few times. Before you confront the ferryman late in the main story, you find Nadine has beaten you to it.
Fallout: New Vegas has Vulpes Inculta, a spy who manages to beat the Courier to Nipton, The Strip, and The Fort, no matter how fast the Courier travels. He is involved in many covert operations, and it's implied that when you don't see him, he's wreaking havoc in NCR territory somewhere.
Any of the NCR Rangers. They have spies everywhere, even at all the Legion bases. You even meet a drug dealer who turns out to be one. Imagine how many are out there.
And finally there's Ulysses, who is gradually revealed to have visited every location explored in the DLC packs and had his own adventures there before his final confrontation with the Courier in Lonesome Road.
Fallout 4 has you run into a group of five people: Preston Garvey, Sturges, Mama Murphy, Jun Long, and Marcy Long. The four appear to have been running for a long time, and had a much larger group than the ragtag group of five left at the end. After helping them escape Concord, Preston can tell you about the minutemen, a huge plot regarding betrayal, the collapse of the minutemen, and so forth. Should you check the southern end of Quincy, you can also come across three gunners known as Tessa, Clint, and Baker. Killing them and reading the various terminals explains even more of the tragic events that led up to the five holing up in the museum you saved them from.
Kellogg's entire backstory shows him as having one heck of a bad train ride called life that ended with you and him confronting one another. The segment of the game where you find out all of this roughly takes up over ten minutes of time just to watch.
Paladin Brandis and his team had a huge streak of bad luck that resulted in him being stranded in the Commonwealth for a long time. You only arrive in the Commonwealth after he's become paranoid and nearly given up, and never learn the entirety of his story.
You meet Brian Vergil after his escape from the Institute, and he never really tells you how that went or any of the details between then and when you meet with him, although there are some clues in his old lab.

New Tamaran: During the events of Teen Titans, the Justice League was off-planet to aid in the war effort against Darkseid, while Supergirl and Wonder Girl had their own adventures as a Battle Couple, and Oracle kept tabs on Lex Corp. Also, Static and Shazam are both briefly mentioned as the defenders of Dakota City and Fawcett City respectively.

In The Lord of the Rings, there are hints of adventures that the other members of the Fellowship had before meeting the hobbits at Rivendell, such as Aragorn's capture of Gollum, or Gandalf's escape from the Ringwraiths. At one point, Sam wonders if Gollum thinks he's the hero of his own story.

A commercial for an insurance company lampshades Star Trek's tendency to do avoid this, with a man on a spaceship in Starfleet uniform saying, "I'm just saying, why does Enterprise get all of the good missions?" The ship then shakes, and he says, "Finally," only for it to turn out to be an alien ship that hit him by accident.

The main plot of Machete Kills features Machete assigned by the President of the United States to stop a missile from being launched at Washington DC. Halfway through the movie, Luther Voz mentions that there are other missiles pointed at different worldwide targets, which Machete warns the President about. At the end, when Machete succeeds in disarming the Washington DC missile, the President says his other agents stopped the other missiles.

The majority of protagonists in Kamen Rider usually continue having the adventures offscreen after their story ends. This is most explicit with the Showa Era Riders, who were often said to be busy fighting evil syndicates worldwide after saving Japan (and presumably still do so), but still present with many of the others. Kamen Rider Double is still acting as the protector of their city, Eiji is off using his powers to help people (and according to a book singlehandedly ended a war his politician father helped start using his powers) and on a quest to resurrect his friend Ankh by fixing his broken Core Medal, and Kouta is busy literally being God for a planet on the other side of the universe for example. Sento Kiryu/Kamen Rider Build also qualifies, as his story is the first one that takes place outside of the Shared Universe concept established by Decade (at least until he engages in multiversal shenanigans in the finale).

Throughout the stories of the shenanigans of the residents of Hearth, we get hints of their own adventures including how they all met in ancient times and lived for hundreds of years through their discovery of the secret of immortality, but the exact stories have yet to be told.

The Elder Empire: The whole point of splitting the universe into two parallel stories. Of Sea and Shadow is about Calder Martin, Captain of the Navigator's Guild, trying to raise up a new God-Emperor after the old one died, in order to help unite humanity and protect the species from the predations of the Elders; he is opposed by anarchic assassins who want to see the thousand-year Empire fractured since it will be more profitable for them. Of Shadow and Sea is about Shera, Gardener of the Consultant's Guild, trying to stop a Great Elder from resurrecting herself and destroying humanity, and to keep the Empire split so that humanity does not have a single point of failure in a God-Emperor; she is opposed by insane cultists and tyrants who think they can handle the power themselves.

We Happy Few of course has Arthur Hastings, Sally Boyle, and Ollie Starkey, the three playable characters who each play small but notable roles in the other playable character stories, but the real hero of another tale is Prudence Holmes, the City Hall employee who's office is beside Arthur's and who "went on holiday" prior to the game's events. One letter reveals that she is a Downer like the three main characters and on a mission to uncover the secrets of Wellington Wells, and you eventually do find her corpse in the Motilene Mines: mere minutes away from the end of the game meaning she went through an adventure similar to Arthur's.

As Lords Among The Ashes is composed of two quests run on separate sites, both Jaune and Ruby are this to each other. While Jaune is conquering the Dark Continent, discovering Lost Technology, and fighting Titans, Ruby is clearing the seas of piracy, becoming an economic superpower, and inventing Mechashift weapons hundreds of years ahead of schedule. Their stories rarely intersect with each other even though they are both rather important.

Othar Trygvassen (Gentleman Adventurer!) is this for much of the comic (as chronicled on his Twitter feed) until his story crosses with the main plot. And in his mind, he's still The Hero even when it does.

Touya, the main character’s brother, from Cardcaptor Sakura, has some magical powers of his own that are distinct from his sister’s, which allow him to deduce that Sakura has become a Magical Girl despite her attempts to keep it secret as well as that Yukito and Mirror are not human. He also has backstory with several other magical people, including Kaho and Yukito, long before his sister found the Book of Clow, and towards the end he gets more character development than pretty much anyone except Sakura herself. Fans often joke that if he had been the Cardcaptor instead of Sakura, the series would be half its length.

In the King of Fighters series, Terry Bogard, Ryo Sakazaki, and Robert Garcia, are only part of the supporting cast and have no real bearing on the series' key events. But, in their respective origin series:
Terry was originally the protagonist of the Fatal Fury series, where he was responsible for repeatedly saving Southtown by defeating the likes of Geese Howard, Wolfgang Krauser, and the Jin Twins, among others.
In the Art of Fighting, Ryo was jointly responsible for taking down Mr. Big's Syndicate, in order to rescue his sister, Yuri. While in the following game, he went on to become the first chronological champion of the King of Fighters tournament, by defeating Geese over a decade prior to Terry.
And Robert was responsible for defeating Mr. Big (AOF1) and was the hero of AOF3, during which, he journeyed to the fictional city of Glasshill Valley, Mexico, to protect his childhood friend, Freia Lawrence. At the game's conclusion, he saved her by defeating both Sinclair and Wyler.
The same is true for Ralf Jones and his partner, Clark Steel, who originally were the heroes of the Ikari Warriors series (as P1 and P2 respectively).

Percy Jackson and the Olympians:
Thalia and Nico start out as side characters, but head off in their own direction after a while. They come back occasionally, and as they are demigods (and children of the other two-thirds of the "Big Three") no matter what, they often hint at their own ripe share of brushes with death. Nico even gets kidnapped off-screen in what we presume to be an epic and never-to-be-known quest.
Retroactively, Jason Grace. We know that while Percy was fighting Kronos, he was fighting the Titan Krios, and that he's been on quite a few quests— enough for him to start rehabilitating the reputation of the Fifth Cohort and be elected praetor. After he regains his memory, Riordan sprinkles in little references (such as going to Charleston with Reyna and having some kind of experience with the dead of the Civil War), but fleshes nothing out.

Journey to Chaos:
Many members of the Dragon's Lair were hired to take part in the Starvation War. It took place pre-series and was fought between Latrot and Mithra. As part of his recovery from mana mutation and monsanity Eric watches videos of a couple of their adventures.
During the course of A Mage's Power Sathel Aranid bodyguarded Abbott Tolis from Our Lady of Perpetual Mischief abbey and thwarted several attempts on his life. Between that book and Looming Shadow she hunted soulcrafters in Najica with her husband, Retina.
Due to a reoccurring case of Random Teleportation, Annala becomes one of these in Transcending Limitations. Order speaks of how she is "bouncing around Noitearc thwarting the plans of his other principal servants". She herself will make off-hand reference to her off-screen adventures whenever she pops into the main narrative.

The Gundam franchise has quite a few, thanks in part to the substantial lore, Expanded Universe material and number of characters that have popped up over the decades. Among the most notable is Kai Shiden, a supporting character from the original Mobile Suit Gundam who, in addition to returning as a veritable badass in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam as part Intrepid Reporter, part James Bond, has a number of sidestories and manga following his off-screen exploits such as the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam Day After Tomorrow manga.

Newt Scamander only gets name dropped once or twice as the author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, one of Harry's First Year text books. He's described briefly in the prologue when said book was published in real life, but otherwise he's barely elaborated as a character. Years later, Newt is given his own story in a series of films named after his book, having all sorts of adventures involving several of the creatures featured in the Fantastic Beasts book, some 70 years before the events of the main series. Oh, and it turns out he had several run-ins with Grindelwald.

A literal example in Moon Rising; Moon only learns about her mentor's Dark and Troubled Past when she reads about it in a history book. Thousands of years ago, Darkstalker was an incredibly powerful animus dragon who was (supposedly) executed by his lover and best friend when they felt he could no longer be trusted. However, Darkstalker was not killed- simply bespelled to sleep eternally. A spell which broke eventually.

In Chrono Hustle there are several TRD agents who are briefly shown or mentioned, who are often dealing with other issues than the main cast. Special mention goes to Elliot Bishop who joins up with the main characters at one point, and then later goes back to his previous mission. In addition there are the characters in the various time periods who have their own things going on, such as the crew of the Space Station Oracle in 2347, or the Neanderthal tribe in the stone age.

Unusual example in that the character in question is actually a key villain of the main story: Demandred in The Wheel of Time makes references to having had a series of adventures on the other side of the world in which he fulfilled a set of prophecies parallel to those of the Dragon Reborn ultimately leading him to become the ruler and Dark Messiah of The Empire of Shara. Word of God even notes that Demandred was essentially the hero of his own parallel version of The Wheel of Time that the reader just barely gets to glimpse.

In Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Anthony Hope spends the vast majority of the play essentially under the assumption that he is the lead in a romantic story. It isn't until the closing moments of the show that he discovers he's really been in a thriller/horror story the whole time, and on top of that indirectly helped drive the Villain Protagonist mad enough to decide the whole world deserves to die.

Aylwyn is always off on Paladin business doing important things for the kingdom; her path just tends to cross with Paul's from time to time.
In the second book, towards the end of the story Sarah leaves the narrative to lead a party of her own, to rescue the captive princess from a dragon's agents. In the third book, we find out she was successful, but no details. In his narration, Paul says that it's not his story to tell and he'll leave it to Sarah to maybe explain what happened some day.

In The Manehattanverse, Twilight was sent to Manehattan instead of Ponyville; a lot of the events that occured there still happened, but were resolved in different manners by the remaining members of the Mane Six offscreen.

Birthright establishes the five mages as heroes born of Terrenos - except for Sameal, who was born on another world. Which means he somehow developed mage powers, jumped worlds alone, became a top-ten mage in a magic-using world, volunteered to fight God King Lore for years, and led the five to seal Lore away from Earth.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 is essentially this for Leif, a supporting character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War's second half. The game takes place a year before the second half of Genealogy and follows Leif in the Thracian Peninsula and his desperate struggle to reclaim his kingdom while fighting a division of the Grannvale Empire and the Loptyr Cult. Seliph, the actual hero of Genealogy shows up briefly and his role is essentially to show how badass his army is which initially increases Leif's self doubt.

The Sun Soul has a few of these. Ash Ketchum leads his core party of intrepid heroes all over the place, but along they meet up with a number of recurring individuals who work towards similarly heroic ends off-screen. So far, not many of these have been Killed Off for Real, but given the author's willingness to kill anyone...

Mahou Sensei Negima!:
Practically every other member of class 3-A counts. There's a vampire that has lost her powers and been sealed in the school, a Robot Girl who works for said vampire, a half-demon swordswoman hired to protect the heir to a magic association, said heir to the magic association who has been kept in the dark about her powers, an ex-priestess turned sniper for hire, a mysterious acrobat who isn't completely human and rarely speaks, a Mad Scientist who developed and maintains the aforementioned robot, a ninja, a Cute Ghost Girl, a martial artist who won the school's annual martial arts tournament the year before, a pair of bookworms who regularly explore a giant library filled with traps, a rumormonger who explores said giant library with the aforementioned bookworms, a net idol who keeps her pastimes secret from her classmates, and a time-traveling martian from the future who is descended from the main character. And that's not even acknowledging the more normal characters like the cheerleaders, the gymnast, or the basketball player. There's even a few chapters that focus on delivering the message that everyone is the hero of their own story.
When Rakan shows the class Negi's Dad's story in the Paru-sama's theatre, one gets the impression that this is the abridged version of a potentially epic shounen story in its own right.
Invoked in a scene with Ako.

In the Star Trek: Mere Anarchy series, the fourth tale attempts to give the impression that Starfleet captains across the board have noteworthy adventures, avoiding the implications that Kirk is the guy to which everything interesting happens. When Kirk mentions he was present at a particular event, the captain he's talking too responds with a casual "oh yeah, that was you", and it's mentioned that this captain was off having his own adventure at the time.

In the Ogre Battle, in a twist, in every game there's the MacGuffin of another story, the Fireseal/crest. While technically it is the most powerful accessory one can wear, its Flavor Text indicates that it's either equally powerful or more than that particular game's doohicky; but nobody knows what it is for.

The Universal Survival Tournament in Dragon Ball Super involves the champions of several universes taking place in a massive battle royal, where Goku and the gang are just one of the teams are involved. Naturally this means that heroes from the other universes are fighting for their own survival, such as the superheroic Pride Troopers of Universe 11, and the magical girl Kamikaze Fireballs of Universe 2. We're only given fleeting glimpses of their universes in the lead up to the tournament, but it's clear they all have other issues and adversaries to contend with in their own stories.

TOS tended to suggest that the other Constitution-class starships generally did have their own 'only ship in the sector' and 'stumbled upon a dangerous mystery while exploring' incidents off-screen whenever other Constitution-class starships showed up. No specific individual served the Hero of Another Story role well, though.
Spock became the hero of another story on TNG when he dedicated his life to leading an underground dissident movement on Romulus to reunite the Vulcan and Romulan people.

Pony POV Series:
Minty Pie becomes this in the latter end of Dark World. She rushes after the new Elements of Harmony to help them fight Discord, but falls into a cavern network, where she has a series of adventures and a Big Bad of her own, which the reader only sees bits and pieces of. She finally joins up with the others just in time for the Final Battle with Nightmare Paradox.
The "7 Dreams/Nightmares" collection has Logan, who shows up in Clover's and Bright Eyes' stories and saves both them and their families from monsters created by the disaster with the Yellow shard of the Rainbow of Light, during his quest to find his parents. Luna suggests to Twilight that he continued to do so for the rest of his life (help others, that is; he did eventually find his parents).
The Shining Armor Arc has Commander Bond, who handles several espionage-related investigations while Shining and Cadence are busy with politics, and the anti-Hooviet rebels led by Dima and Mother Deer (who have been fighting Makarov a lot longer than Shining has).
The Wedding Arc primarily focuses on the Mane Six and their friends fighting off the Changelings, but there's a side story focusing on Misfit Actual, Shining's command squad, as they perform covert operations against the Changeling occupation of Canterlot.
The Wedding Arc also has a Noodle Incident version of this, as a few cutaway scenes show that Captive Audience (a member of Misfit) somehow got roped into an adventure with the Doctor and his companions in Neighpon, fighting Dracozilla and the Daleks.
In the Finale Arc, the Cutie Mark Crusaders call out Phobia for constantly showing up just to give them cryptic advice and then ditching them. He lectures them on how while they are have their own adventure to save the world, he's working behind the scenes to save individual lives and set up ways for them to win. He even mentions the trope Hero of Another Story by name, and points out even if they don't know what the other heroes are doing, they are equally important. Later, the CMC just barely miss running into the Doctor, who cured Lickety Split of being a werewolf. Daring Do, Flash Sentry, and others also have individual adventures saving people.

In The Secrets of Drearcliff Grange School, there are occasional reminders during the earlier parts of the book that the school has plenty of students and exciting events apart from Amy and her friends and their adventures. (Less so after the main plot kicks in and the school gets taken over as part of an Assimilation Plot, because then everything happening at the school becomes part of a single story.) There's also the case of Enid ffolliott, who dramatically appears in time to save Amy from a peril after being missing for two years; it's strongly suggested that what she was doing during those two years was adventurous and possibly world-saving, although we don't get many details.

The Elder Scrolls
In Morrowind, Jiub is the Nerevarine's shirtless, bald, one-eyed fellow prisoner aboard the Imperial Prison Ship at the start of the game. He lets the Nerevarine known they've arrived in Morrowind and asks for the Nerevarine's name, and is never seen again once the Nerevarine exits the ship. Despite his very limited role, he was popular enough with fans to generate countless Fan Fics and Game Mods which add him back into the game. Bethesda took notice and, in Oblivion, mention that became a Saint in Morrowind for driving the (much reviled) Cliff Racers to extinction. His spirit makes a cameo in Skyrim's Dawnguard DLC, where he offers a sidequest in the Soul Cairn.
In Oblivion, from a certain point of view, you are the Hero of Another Story, with Martin being the hero of the main quest. True, you do all of the heavy lifting, including rescuing Martin to begin with, but he (as only remaining person with Septim blood) is the only one who can "close shut the jaws of Oblivion" and is remembered after the fact as the hero who sacrificed himself to cast Mehrunes Dagon out of Mundus. However, both major expansions (Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles) very much have you as the hero.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker: It has some with the other groups claiming parts of the Stolen Lands with just the main game, but the Varnhold's Lot DLC takes place parallel to Act II of the main game, providing backstory for an event you encounter in the main game, turning your protagonist there (the General) into this for the main game, and the protagonist of the main game (the Baron/ess) into this for Varnhold's Lot. If you do the right things, the General will continue to be this between the end of Varnhold's Lot and the endgame, being implied to have gotten into adventures of their own after getting lost in action before swooping in to help out at the final battle.

Devil May Cry:
The series' backstory revolves around Ascended Demon Sparda who rebelled against the forces of the demon world to protect humanity. In the modern day, his legacy is carried on by son Dante and grandson Nero.
In Devil May Cry 2, we are introduced to Matier, the adoptive mother of Deuteragonist Lucia. Matier fought side by side with Sparda to seal away the demon Argosax the Chaos and even briefly had a relationship with him. In the present, Dante and Lucia save the world from Argosax's return just as their parents did all those years ago. The Protectors clan that Matier and Lucia belong to are a race of demon-human hybrids who have defended the human world for years but their exploits are not talked about aside from the aforementioned team up of Sparda and Matier and only Matier and Lucia are shown in the game.
In Devil May Cry: The Animated Series, it's stated that Trish had struck out on her own for a while as a solo demon hunter. However, the only fights we see her partake in are with Dante and Lady. Lady herself also has her independent devil-hunting career that is never really seen aside from a few snippets of her hunting demons on her own.

In One Piece Self-Insert Fic This Bites!, it seems that some of the anime filler-arc adventures that this story is skipping over are still happening, just to other crews. For example, Bartolomeo has Apis from the Warship Island arc as a member of his crew. Just about all of the Super Rookies have their own battles during the Straw Hats' assault on Enies Lobby.

Splatoon 2's story mode revolves around Agent 4 and their adventure through Octo Canyon to help Marie find Callie. Cap'n Cuttlefish and Agent 3, the Mission Control and player character of Splatoon, don't show up in this campaign, with Marie explaining their absence as being on a mission of their own. The game's Octo Expansion reveals that both of them (along with Pearl and Marina, the game's newcomers who also made no appearance in the main game's story mode) were in fact helping Agent 8 escape the subway they were lost in.

Final Fantasy:
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles has the player character(s) encounter many other myrrh-gathering groups, including the real main characters. You're just there to watch.
In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud discovers that his choppy memories are actually those of Zack, who gets his story told in Crisis Core.
This happens several times in Final Fantasy XIV:
During Stormblood, Estinien wanders around helping people and aiding the Eorzean Alliance when needed. His story does not intersect with the Warrior of Light's except during the level 70 Dragoon quest and patch 4.56, where he saves them from Elidibus.
In Shadowbringers, Estinien reprises his role to fill in for the Warrior of Light and the Scions while they are in the First, while teaming up with Gaius to curb the production of Black Rose, an alchemical superweapon designed to halt the flow of one's aether. The two make their way to Garlemald to confront Emperor Varis, only to find Zenos in his original body striking his father down.

Shin Super Robot Wars also has a route split, but it covers a majority of the game itself. In fact, some characters are exclusive to each route. The only time they get to meet is in the True Final Boss scenario.

In Robb Returns, there is a hint that something similar to what is going on beyond the Wall is going in the Grey Wastes and the Dothraki are being "called" East, just as the descendants of the First Men are being called North.
And many people are also being pulled to the Isle of Faces, so as to help protect it from the threat of the resurgent Faith Militant.

Yumyulack opted out of the gender-based plots in "The P.A.T.R.I.C.I.A. Device" and ended up having to return a bunch of koalas to the zoo after accidentally freeing them.
In "Terry and Korvo Steal a Bear", we only see brief glimpses of the family's adventure, as the focus is mainly on the residents of the wall.

Basically every king candidate in Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic is this. They all start their adventure by completing a dungeon and gather True Companions in the form of a houshold and they go to live their own adventure while at times meeting other king candidates.
Among them, Sinbad is the paragon of this trope. He has lived countless adventures already when the story begins and is knwon in the universe as The Hero. He event gets his own spin-off to tell his adventures.

Trollhunters: In Part 3, a duo of exchange students are introduced. It's hinted that they are up to something and know more than what they let on, but are also doing their own thing away from Jim and have nothing to do with the Trolls. This is the first in-series allusion to the greater Tales of Arcadia trilogy, as they end up being a pair of royal alien fugitives that seek sanctuary on Earth after their planet was taken by a coup, and are the protagonists of the next installment, 3Below.

Reversed during the Divertissment Chapter of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel where Rean Schwarzer, the protagonist of the game, becomes this trope as the players control Lloyd and Rixia guiding them through the advanced sewers of Crossbell to erase any important data. The players do see snippets of the things Rean has been doing for the first few minutes before the control transfers to the two Crossbell citizens. By Cold Steel III however, Lloyd plays this trope straight where he's doing his own thing while Rean and the new Class VII are doing their adventures onscreen.

The Amazing World of Gumball has a minor character named Clare Cooper, who is the opposite of the show's actual main character in every way. Where Gumball is a hyperactive New Tens-era Talking Animal starring in a zany Fantastic Comedy, Clare is the Token Human of Anais's class, and seems to be the star of an angsty Nineties Teen Drama called The So-Called World of Clare. Her main gag is a not-so-Inner Monologue and the inability to recognize the fact that her mundane teen problems (like her father losing her job and having to move to Detroit) have a multitude of wacky and fantastical solutions in the world of Elmore (like getting her dad a job at the rainbow factory and buying her house back with a pot of leprechaun gold. Yes, really).

Lotte from Clock Tower spends the entire game practically out of sight (though she can save you at several key points depending on your choices and actions), and you finally find her in the final stretch of the game, collapsed and dying from fatal injuries she has sustained, with her invaluable exposition strongly implying she had come this close to solving the mystery and finishing the game on her own.

Mystery Road: Despite his creepy demeanor throughout the film, his last scenes imply that Johnno might actually be one, investigating the case from another angle and being implied to have pieces of the puzzle that Jay never finds out for sure.
Bobby Rogers was also making progress into the case, before Jay ever showed up, until he turned up dead. The fact that the drug ring considered him a big enough threat to assassinate, while they never try to do the same to Jay and Johnno until the climax, despite how much sniffing around their doing, implies that Bobby was a serious threat to them indeed. The motel clerk even noted that he was there a year ago asking some of the same questions as Jay.

Kino's Journey:
Kino meets a male counterpart; an exiled prince with a talking dog. They go their separate ways after one chapter. In the novels that the anime is based on he is one of the main heroes as he appears in stories of his own, all of which are narrated by his dog, Riku. This trope still does apply though, in that every once in awhile he will cross paths with Kino and these stories are never narrated by Riku and are told in third person, just like all the stories that focus on Kino. The same trope also applies to Shishou (or "master"), the woman who taught Kino and used to go on travels of her own. In the anime we only see her as an old woman, once in a flashback during the main 13 episodes and during the movie ~Life Goes On~, which is set during the time Kino is living with her, but the novels include stories about the travels of a much younger Shishou and her unnamed student.

His significance is revealed late in 3rei, where his past is explored through a flashback. In contrast with the Illya's more idealistic story about her struggles as a Magical Girl, his is a darker one focusing on his time as a participant of the Holy Grail War and his life-and-death battle against the Ainsworths to save his sister.

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man's first encounter with the Sinister Six had Iron Man playing this role; also subverted, when he encounters the X-Men and they turn out to be android duplicates programmed to try and kill him.
It was once a common occurrence that every time the Sinister Six showed up, Spider-Man would call the Avengers and Fantastic Four, only to find out that they were on other missions. Other superheroes would eventually come to his aid, however.
The first Spider-Man Annual is full of this. He couldn't go two pages without crossing paths with another superhero who is off on his own adventure (while the narrator points out that you can follow said hero's adventures in his respective comic).
Maximum Carnage shows this trope too, as both the Avengers and the Fantastic Four are specifically mentioned as being away. At one point, Spidey and Venom break into the FF's headquarters while they're away to steal a sonic weapon to fight Carnage. Later, Captain America shows up to lend a hand, and the rest of the Avengers finally return just in time to mop up after Carnage is defeated.

In Morrowind, Jiub is the Nerevarine's shirtless, bald, one-eyed fellow prisoner aboard the Imperial Prison Ship at the start of the game. He lets the Nerevarine known they've arrived in Morrowind and asks for the Nerevarine's name, and is never seen again once the Nerevarine exits the ship. Despite his very limited role, he was popular enough with fans to generate countless Fan Fics and Game Mods which add him back into the game. Bethesda took notice and, in Oblivion, mention that became a Saint in Morrowind for driving the (much reviled) Cliff Racers to extinction. His spirit makes a cameo in Skyrim's Dawnguard DLC, where he offers a sidequest in the Soul Cairn.

We never find out who's behind it, what their ultimate plan is, or whether the Baron's plan to have her brother publicly take the blame ever worked.

Ruby Quest:
The Stinger implies that Daisy, who Ruby meets once rather early on in the quest, will be the heroine of the next attempt to escape the Metal Glen.
And then there's Red, who, prior to the game's beginning, managed to pierce together what happened in the Metal Glen (despite suffering from amnesia after being resurrected) enough to realize that he could kill himself off for real (thus escaping the Metal Glen) if he survived long enough for his body to rid itself of the Cure. He then managed to put his plan into action, avoiding death by his horribly mutated coworkers and patients and hiding from Ace long enough to become truly clean. Ruby only gets to see the tail end of his plan, when he builds a bomb with materials he scrounged (including two coins from her), kills himself with sharpened stakes, and uses the bomb to obliterate his body beyond the possibility of resurrection. The only hint she gets of his plan (other than the bit she saw) was his secret Room Full of Crazy above the monitor room ( presumably where he hid from Ace) and the box of cereal inside ( Showing that he, unlike people on the Cure, needed to eat).

Two story events in Granblue Fantasy have Siegfried playing this role. In Four Knights of a Fallen Land, he single-handedly holds off an army coming to invade Feendrache, and in A Song of Ice and Fire he signs an alliance to protect an otherwise-defenseless Feendrache, and also destroys several of Aglovale's magic circles that were giving him power.

Critical Role: After Tary leaves Vox Machina, he returns to Wildemount and starts his own adventuring party, the Darrington Brigade. Background references imply that the Darrington Brigade is still active twenty years later during the Mighty Nein campaign. Additionally, most of the guest characters are going on adventures in their own right, and Vox Machina and the Mighty Nein detour to help them with their adventures about as often as they help the party with their ongoing goals.

In Devil May Cry: The Animated Series, it's stated that Trish had struck out on her own for a while as a solo demon hunter. However, the only fights we see her partake in are with Dante and Lady. Lady herself also has her independent devil-hunting career that is never really seen aside from a few snippets of her hunting demons on her own.

From Necessary Roughness comes Charlie Bankshe, the only player on the original Armadillos football team not to be banned from playing football for life. The story of how he not only persisted in the sport despite his obvious athletic shortcomings, but triumphed by making the winning touchdown at the end of the film's climactic football game, would have made a fine movie in and of itself.

Because the Kiseki Series is one giant long arc spanning for so many games, characters who used to be the protagonists of their own series may be having adventures off-screen compared to the characters the player controls at the time.
Cassius Bright, the father of the main characters of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC is apparently so badass that the Society of Ouroboros caused a crisis in Erebonia specifically so that he could be the hero of that story and not be in the way of their efforts in Liberl. Details of exactly what he had been up to can be found in one of the Star Doors in The Third.
Zero no Kiseki has Estelle and Joshua doing their Bracer work on and off-screen while Lloyd and the SSS are doing their own thing. Meanwhile, Ao No Kiseki has Kevin and Ries doing their undercover work.
Reversed during the Divertissment Chapter of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel where Rean Schwarzer, the protagonist of the game, becomes this trope as the players control Lloyd and Rixia guiding them through the advanced sewers of Crossbell to erase any important data. The players do see snippets of the things Rean has been doing for the first few minutes before the control transfers to the two Crossbell citizens. By Cold Steel III however, Lloyd plays this trope straight where he's doing his own thing while Rean and the new Class VII are doing their adventures onscreen.

Maria from My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! takes this quite literally. When the world was just a normal otome game, she was the main character of the story, with each of the main guys being her love interests and Catarina being the nastiest of her romantic rivals. However, after the memory situation with Catarina, her role has been flipped, and instead she has become a love interest for Catarina, with her former love interests and the rivals for said love interests becoming rivals for Catarina's love now.

The Warhammer 40,000: Gaunt's Ghosts novels make extensive use of other Imperial Guard regiments fighting alongside or in the same area as the Ghosts, with the commanders typically being named, likable individuals. Watch out, though, for the other commanders ever getting character development. If they do, bastardry will ensue at some point during the book.

The Neverending Story lives off this literally. It is maintained by dreams and stories and everyone has one. To quote the narrator time and again throughout the novel, “But that is another story and shall be told another time.” Specific examples include:
Pyornrachzark, Blubb, Vooshvazool, and Gluckuk, the heralds that travel to warn of the Nothing early on in the novel. We lose track of them, but presumably they all go on to, at least, make the journey back home.
Hynreck, the disgraced hero who left on his own while his comrades followed Bastian, went after a monster who kidnapped his love interest, and won, but we're spared the details and what happens next.
Yikka, a mule who served as Bastian's mount for a while, is not exactly an example, but after being granted fertility and a faithful encounter with a pegasus stallion by Bastian, she has a son called Patalplan, a half-mule, half pegasus hybrid that is himself an example, as he reportedly had many peculiar adventures.
And then we have The City of Old Emperors, where every single inhabitant is this. Or rather, was. The City is the final destination of every single human visitor to Fantastica who failed/refused to go back to the real world. They all inevitably attempted to replace the Childlike Empress, bringing chaos and war to Fantastica before eventually wasting away all of their memories of the real world by abusing Auryn. Once they lost all memories, they became blank husks of the people they were and ended up in the City.
If Hykrion the Strong is to be believed, one of the many visitors to Fantastica from the real world was William Shakespeare himself.
The biggest one is Atreyu, because after Balthasar is told that he can't leave Fantastica until all the stories he set in motion are finished, Atreyu volunteers to finish all those stories in his place so Balthasar can go home.

Stargate Universe:
Also showed up in this show more than once; in the first episode, we see a number of starships (one of which is being captained by Samantha Carter of SG-1), who then slide out of focus as the main plot kicks into gear. They're alluded to a few times afterwards, and a few episodes in the second season involve characters from the previous two series working to get SGU's cast home.
The alternate crew created by a time travel incident, thought to have been killed, actually landed on a planet a thousand years in the past. They were just as much "them" as the crew that remained on the ship (of whom they were unaware), and although they didn't know they'd traveled back in time, Eli theorized it was possible that they had. The "real" crew go to see their alternate lives play out in "episodes" captured by the Kinos. Had the show gone onto a third season, it's likely that their descendants would have weaved in and out of the main story.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
Derpy Hooves is very strongly implied to be one via loads of Meaningful Background Events. Besides appearing in the background of several important events, as most background characters do, she was once a terrific flier in her youth (even consistently beating Rainbow Dash, Spitfire, and Lightning Dust) until she suffered a Career-Ending Injury of some sort to her eyes, and even in spite of that she's shown to be a brave and selfless pony who was the only non-Wonderbolt to attack Tirek, was among the first of Ponyville's citizens to help combat the Tantabus, and even sacrificed herself to block one of the petrifying orbs that was about to hit Twilight Sparkle in the movie. She seems wholly content to get no praise or regard for any of it from the main heroes.
Daring Do is this when she's discovered to be real, and that her numerous adventures — only a small number of which are shown or discussed on-screen — really happened. It's eventually revealed that she's actually the Villain of Another Story, albeit unintentionally, when it's discovered Ahuizotl is a good but not nice temple guardian who is sick of ponies like Daring Do and Dr. Caballeron breaking into temples to steal stuff.
In "Inspiration Manifestation", Twilight goes through a lot of offscreen trouble to clean up Rarity's mess. She eventually had to call in backup from Luna and Cadance, and it's made clear that the whole ordeal caused a great amount of stress.
The entire Mane Six gets to enjoy being this in the Lower-Deck Episode "Slice of Life". They're busy duking it out with a Bugbear (a literal half-bug half-bear), but the episode focuses entirely on Cranky and Matilda's wedding and the background ponies who are making it happen.
"A Flurry of Emotions", "The Beginning of the End" and "Frenemies" describe Gusty the Great, a Precursor Hero who had numerous adventures long before the funding of Equestria and defeated the legendary villain Grogar.
"The Last Problem" shows stained glass windows in the Canterlot throne room, the kind reserved for commemorating great victories achieved by Equestria's heroes, depicting the Student Six defeating a rhinoceros-like creature and an adult Flurry Heart doing something with the Crystal Heart, implying they all went on to have their own adventures after the time of the show.

Doctor Who:
Supporting characters often choose to stay behind on Earth, or similar, in order to have their own adventures. Sarah Jane (twice) and Captain Jack got their own spinoffs. These "adventures" are often referenced when the character returns to the main show.
Rose was originally going to get a spin-off as well, but development of it fell through.
According to the two-parter "The Sontaran Stratagem"/"The Poison Sky", the Brigadier still takes assignments to Peru in his old age. After years of frustrated fans clamoring "Come on! Nicholas Courtney's not getting any younger!" he finally appeared on TV for the first time since 1989 in series 2 of The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Rory spent two thousand years protecting his fiance's tomb so that she could be brought Back from the Dead, all while reality itself fell apart around him. All we know about it is that by the end, he's one of the most well-known figures in Earth's history.

An episode of Person of Interest was told from the point of view of Sameen Shaw, a counter-terrorist agent tasked with chasing the numbers the Government does consider relevant. She later became a main character.
Another episode had brief flashes of Det. Fusco protecting a supermodel from Albanian gangsters. His story is unrelated to that of the main characters and we only see glimpses of him doing some extremely heroic things. It demonstrated that while Fusco might be the Butt-Monkey of Team Machine, on his own he is actually a highly competent police officer.
Hersh and Control are borderline examples due to their immorality and frequent bouts of You Have Outlived Your Usefulness, but are still trying their best to protect America as a nation.
Root evolved into this after becoming an "analog interface" for the Machine, running ops around the world in order to prevent rival Machines being activated.
Fifth season episode "Synecdoche" features an eccentric tech genius millionaire, a former soldier and a career criminal saving... Reese, Shaw and Fusco. In the end, Logan Pierce mentions that Reese's number wasn't the first to turn up and they were working with the Machine for some time.

An Officer and a Gentleman is the story of Zack Mayo (Richard Gere). Casey Seeger, the only female officer candidate, appears in a few scenes—just enough to declare her intention to be the Navy's first female fighter pilot, show her struggles on the obstacle course, reveal it's really an internal struggle with feeling like "a second-class citizen" and with "daddy's disappointment that she wasn't a boy", let Foley hold her up to the main character as an example of "heart! and character!" and overall give the impression that, if the camera started following her around, there'd be a damn good movie in there.

In For Whom the Bell Tolls, the partisan leader El Sordo appears to be the best in the area, with many exciting battles under his belt. But the narration focuses on Pablo's band, and we only see Sordo in one conversation scene and one combat scene.

Wrath of the Lemming Men has General Sir Florence Young (sic), who at the conclusion of the book is being knighted for winning a critical battle which (from the central characters' perspective) was fought completely off-stage.

The CSI shows CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI NY, and CSI: Cyber, share a continuity with Cold Case, and Without a Trace, making them all "another story" to each other.

Not to mention fedorafreak, who only ever appears on a Twitter expy for three frames, and provides regular updates about, respectively, his choice of hats, his house burning down, The End of the World as We Know It, his own journey through another session of Sburb and, finally, his death, possibly on a Quest Bed (which would allow his ascension to God Tier). The forums make him a Memetic Badass.

The Saga of Grettir the Strong:
The life of the outlaw Hallmund is apparently quite a story not unlike that of Grettir himself. When Hallmund lies dying, he recites a poem commemorating his adventures, and "many exploits of his did Hallmund recount in the lay, for he had been in every land." Only a short piece of it is given, but it hints at a most extraordinary tale:
The outlaw Grim who kills Hallmund goes on to become a famous adventurer himself: "Grim became a great traveller and there is a long saga about him."

A third season episode of Andromeda reveals an alternate timeline where Rhade, Dylan's second in command in the first episode, kills Dylan in their fight in that episode. It results in him taking the role of trying to revive the Commonwealth, and showcases a few important episodes of Season 1 with him in command. In the end, Harper mentions that he seems like a scumbag, and Dylan replies "everyone is the hero of their own story."

In Worldof Warcraftthe two factions have completely separate stories, although with some overlap (they do most of the same dungeons and raids, some of the same quests). In addition, in the expansion Legion, each class had it's own story alongside the main story of the expansion. Thus, other players in the game are this trope: even moreso than in most MMORPGs.

Since The Hunger Games are told entirely from Katniss's point of view, there's a lot of details and stories we miss out on because she is unaware of what's happening.
Thresh and Foxface throughout the first novel are off having adventures completely separate from Katniss. Foxface and Katniss unknowingly cross each others paths a couple of times but Katniss only runs into Thresh once during the games. Thresh is also apparently off having a major battle with Cato for several days while Katniss and Peeta are in the cave.
In the first half of the first book, Peeta could be considered this as he has some agenda and his own adventures with the Career Tributes. We find out about some of these actions later after he has revealed his true colors.
The Avox Girl, who apparently had an entire adventure before she ever crossed paths with Katniss.
Bonnie and Twill. Katniss hears the first half of their story but is left wondering what happened to them.
We also never find out what the rebel movement was up to before Katniss came on the scene (it's way too big and organized to just be a reaction to one defiant act), or how Finnick, Johanna, Beatee, etc all joined it and their stories.
Nor do we see Gale evacuate what remains of District 12 after they are bombed. He is considered by many a literal hero.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Stephen Stills appears to be starring in his own movie, where Scott is just some weird guy who flakes out on the band and messes up their shows. Director Edgar Wright has stated that he instructed Stills' actor to pretend that the movie he's in is called Stephen Stills Is Almost Famous. This is something from the comics where Scott very much believes that he is the hero of the story and the Aesop, if there was one, was "Life does not work that way." This is further fleshed out in the comic, where Stephen has an entire background arc in which he comes out as gay but decides not to tell Scott about it until the end, because it looks like he has enough on his plate already.

Battlestar Galactica (2003) does this to some extent - there are many, many recurring characters who clearly have a lot going on that doesn't impact on the main plot, such as the ever-busy Doc Cottle and some of the pilots such as Racetrack (who, as of the end of series 3, had been a recurring character since the beginning but had never had a Day in the Limelight) or Hotdog, who had been a supporting player from his introduction in series 1 up until the point in series 4 when it was revealed he was baby Nicky's real father.
The standalone features Razor and The Plan tell the other stories: in Razor the protagonist is an officer on the Pegasus, while The Plan retells events from the Cylons' viewpoint.

Your rival adventurers in Elona will wander about the continent, clearing dungeons, finding treasures, and visiting towns on their own. Every time you bump into them, you can challenge them, barter for their equipment, hire them as bodyguards or romance them.
Also, should you sacrifice them or beat them up enough to shame them off the continent, new ones take their place.

The people in all the other lockdowns and compounds are the biggest examples, all resisting the vampires an the Brotherhood with a Reasonable Authority Figure who deal with Mister and Martin. They likely had to go through something akin to Jericho only with vampires instead of a nuclear war aftermath. Party members Peggy, Willie and Sister had their own adventures before joining up with the main cast.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, there's sort of an In-Universe example. Moisture Creature is included as a Hidden Character, and he claims to be an alien that got trapped inside the game and was identified as a monster character.

Discussed in The Man from Earth; John thinks he might have encountered another immortal having his own adventures throughout history. He met and briefly connected with a man in the 16th century, then glimpsed someone who looked just like him passing through a train station 200 years later. He never found out if it was really the same guy or just a case of mistaken identity, and neither does the audience.

Luigi in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He's been going on his own adventures and getting his own party members on his own time (even getting a book series adapted). While the books claim to be going on a truly epic adventure, he describes them to Mario in a much simpler way (the books claim that during a play he had the role of a "magnificent earth spirit", while he told Mario that he played the role of grass) but still painting himself as the hero of the story, and then when asking his (usually beleaguered) party members, they state that Luigi's exploits are just one Epic Fail to another Epic Fail and it's usually up to them to pull him out.

In Warrior Cats, there are several times when characters other than the heroes are off on their own quests to save the Clans. There are several such as Yellowfang, who in the first book was organizing a resistance against Brokenstar; Stormfur, who was helping the Tribe become strong enough to defeat the Mountain Invaders; Tigerheart, who spied on the Dark Forest so that he could protect the Clans; and even Jingo, a cat trying to protect her band of former kittypets after their lives were ruined by Sol.

In The Chronicles of Narnia, where the protagonists from our world might be The Only One for the brief time they are there, but Narnia exists for thousands of years without them and is said to have many adventures and heroes of its own that we never hear of (as well as many times where nothing exciting at all is happening).

The Portal series: In Portal there are only two characters: Chell and GLaDOS. In Portal 2 we are introduced to Wheatley, and we get to know more about Cave Johnson, founder of Aperture Science, and his assistant, Caroline. But there is another character that is not only common to both games, but is also crucial to the story, as in without his actions, there would be no story at all; and yet we never get to see him - but we find references to him and his work everywhere: "The Ratman". Doug Rattman was a scientist working in the GLaDOS project, and became the only survivor after GLaDOS gassed everyone with Neurotoxins. He then managed to stay alive for several years, living in hiding, moving through the facilities using secret passages; and eventually succeeded in starting the events that lead to Chell facing GLaDOS, and all that happens afterwards. In fact, he is so much a Hero of Another Story that he actually does have his own story

On Once Upon a Time most characters are quite literally heroes from another story as we often encounter various fairytale and mythical figures from widely known tales, even DISNEY films. The show usually has entire flashback episodes showing the story of these characters even if they are not main characters within the show itself or will even appear in more than one episode.

The SRU of Flashpoint had a total of five teams, but the show only focuses on Team One. Teams Three and Four make a few brief appearances each, while Two and Five are only mentioned, but it's implied their days are much the same as the series cast.
Notable individuals include Rolie, who is Team One in the first episode but is promoted to Sergeant and never seen again, and Donna Sabine, who fills in for Jules after she's shot and transfers to Team Three when Jules returns. Wordy becomes this as well after he resigns from SRU. (The latter two do make occasional appearances after their departures.)

All-Star Superman:
Superman at one point mentions Batman and Robin, but we never actually see them in the series.
One issue sees him stranded on a planet of Bizarros, including Bizarro versions of his teammates in the Justice League, meaning they probably exist in this universe too, but just aren't shown.

Roran Stronghammer of the Inheritance Cycle is an example. He's technically a point of view character, but over the course of Brisingr he slaughters nearly one hundred men from atop an ever-growing mountain of their shattered corpses, is summarily beaten to within an inch of his life for disobeying orders, immediately goes out and wrestles an Urgal chieftan into submission, and leads his new troops to several important victories over The Empire. And everyone completely forgets about him once Eragon gets back from his vacation, to the point that he isn't even mentioned during the Final Battle.
Saphira gives a blessing of sorts to an infant girl, later informing Eragon that the girl won't have an ordinary life after receiving it, and that what he just witnessed was the beginning of a whole new legend. And then it turns out that they screwed up and cursed her to suffer other people's problems. After they find out, they try to remove the curse, but only partially remove it, resulting in someone who is aware of other people's problems, but is not inclined to help. It's implied that she is now on a path to become a villain.
An even more blatant example comes in Brisingr, when Angela asks Eragon to bless a mother and daughter whose fortunes she had just read. She even lampshades this later by refusing to tell Eragon anything about the two, and they only have one more brief appearance in the final battle in Inheritance.

The main story of Grand Theft Auto IV centers around Niko Bellic. The two following DLC releases, collectively titled "Episodes from Liberty City", focus on biker Johnny Klebitz and Luis Fernando Lopez, bodyguard and hitman for club owner Tony Prince. The three occasionally run across one another, but their stories are largely independent. All three are together in a single location only once, during a diamond deal they've all been brought into by various circumstances (which was foreshadowed by the achievement for completing the diamond mission in Niko's story, called "Impossible Trinity").

Even Buffy the Vampire Slayer touched upon this. Xander gets left behind as the characters take on a world-shaking threat. He himself has to deal with a clearly homicidal school bully. It gets much, much worse. Xander's story only briefly intersects with the 'Let's stop the world from ending' the other cast members are involved with...but if he had failed, the bully would have interfered with the aforementioned world-saving, triggering fun times.
Over the course of the show, Riley, Oz, and the entire cast of Angel becomes this.
More specifically, in the penultimate episode of the series, Angel arrives in a Big Damn Heroes moment. Unusually, this is a character who used to be one of the heroes of this story, left to be the hero of another story, comes back as both of the above, and then gets sent away explicitly to be the hero of another story if The Plan fails.

Stargate Atlantis:
The spinoff also features such a character, Major Lorne. Sheppard, Rodney, Teyla, and Ford (later Ronon) are the "main" Atlantis team that we follow most of the time. Meanwhile, Lorne and his crew are busy with their own missions on other planets that we rarely get to see, only showing up occasionally when he is needed as support for the main characters.
The cast of SG-1 is actually sometimes this for SGA. It's understood that they're still doing big important things that we just don't see. (Especially while their show was actually still going on. There'd often be references to the SG-1 plot — nothing too detailed, but... y'know, just in case you forgot that the Ori and Baal are bad.)

In Second Stage Lensmen, Nadreck of Palain VII. He goes on a solo mission to destroy an enemy base that no one has been able to touch. He does so by inciting the locals into a civil war. However, despite great urging, he absolutely refuses to tell anyone how he did it, because in his eyes the mission was an unmitigated disaster. His shame comes from the fact that he comes from a race of cowards, and he was forced at one point to kill three people directly to complete his mission, rather than causing them to kill each other. To make the point clearer, these people included the highest-ranking enemies at the base, and in a society where Authority Equals Asskicking is taken to the extreme that means he had to personally fight the hardest targets.

Ace Attorney:
Miles Edgeworth does engage in interesting adventures and cases on his own — it's just that the main games of the franchise focus on Phoenix's and Apollo's point of view. Fortunately, you get to see some of Edgeworth's cases in his own two games.
You don't get to see much of what Athena does on her own in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, but Case 4 shows that yes, she takes cases to trial when Apollo or Phoenix aren't around.

In Ciaphas Cain (HERO OF THE IMPERIUM):
Amberly Vail clearly has lots of adventures fighting enemies of the Imperium in between those times when her path crosses with Cain's. Her footnotes occasionally make references to these.
In stories when Cain is serving with the 597th Valhallan it's also usually mentioned that there are several other regiments on the same planet (most notably "Duty Calls", where he notices a young Commissar who shows enough signs of competence that he wonders how he did later on).
Several minor characters wrote similar memoirs to Cain (that is similar to his "official" memoirs, not the candid ones that the stories consist of). Most notably Sulla (who's only a Lieutenant/Captain at the time of the books, but is Lady General by the time she wrote them). Other examples include the Medic (who was essentially a fictionalised James Herriot) from "Death or Glory" and Sgt. Tyber, who went on to write a book about the events of the same.

Goblins has two groups of main characters in a RPG setting, one as if it were a real world (the titular Goblins) and another who act like a group of RPG players, making meta comments all the time. Then there's another RPG player group that fares poorly and seems only to show up to complain about their previous characters dying before dying again, yet reference adventures that aren't shown.

Lone Wolf:
Banedon the wizard pops up to help the main character at several points in the series and gains power and prestige at the same rate as Lone Wolf. He's a more prominent character in the Legend of Lone Wolf novelizations.
In the Mongoose Publishing remakes, each book has a 100 page mini-story about one of the characters who shaped the plot of that book, either taking place before or after said book. One character, the Noble Zombie Dire from Captives of Kaag, is also the mini-story character in The Legacy of Vashna and Wolf's Bane.
Grey Star the Wizard had his own adventure saving Southern Magnamund (Lone Wolf's adventures mostly take place in Northern Magnamund).

Magick Chicks inverts the trope with Melissa Hellrune. She was originally from Eerie Cuties, where she was an antagonist to Layla Delacroix. But her popularity with the readers lead to her being given her own Spin-Off comic, where she became the protagonist, who's gradually being reformed into a heroine — though she's reluctant to change her ways.

On How I Met Your Mother, Stella (Sarah Chalke) guest stars as Ted's love interest for several episodes. Her character has a child from a prior marriage, which initially makes her reluctant to date Ted. In the end, she leaves Ted to reunite with her former husband. Ted's final voice-over narration observes:
Later on we get to see (parts of) that story from the other guy's perspective after a movie was made about it, with Ted's character as a flanderized villain. Ted is not happy about this.
The 200th episode "How Your Mother Met Me" is centered on the Mother and what kind of life she was living before she met Ted, from 2005 up until the wedding. It also shows just how close she could have crossed paths with Ted but always just missed him, including when Ted was teaching in the wrong classroom, when she mistakenly believed she was in the wrong classroom and was about to head back to the right classroom when Ted rushed past her and again, when the Mother went out for drinks with Louis and walked by Ted who was wearing a dress without seeing him.
Robin, despite being a protagonist (and Ted's future wife) gets this in The Front Porch episode, where she asks the group to stay up and watch her deliver the news. They do so, but Ted and Lily get into a fight just as the show starts, and Robin's actions during it (which include delivering a baby and saving two lives) are not noticed by them at all.

In The Tick, American Maid, the most competent member of the heroes that our protagonists interact with, is clearly having her own epic adventures on the side that occasionally intersect with the Tick's. During his A Day in the Limelight episode, it turns out that Sewer Urchin, likewise, has his own heroic and successful struggles in the sewers. Subverted with Die Fledermaus, who is never presented as anything more than a fraud who pretends to be a hero to get respect and women (and fails at both).

About halfway through BoxxyQuest: The Gathering Storm, the protagonists cross paths with another group of heroes who are after the same set of Plot Coupons, but for different reasons. They’ve all got unique designs and personality quirks, and see you as minor characters inside their story. The true ending path expands on the nature of their quest, and you can find them at the entrance to the Sky Abyss, having failed to make the climb themselves.

Percel, a Frieza Clansman NPC Time Patroller, is this in Dragon Ball Xenoverse. He tells you of his mission, where he's in the era of the original Dragon Ball where Demon King Piccolo has fused with Kami and he and his demons wage war on Earth against the Red Ribbon Army and he must put things back together. Even worse, Babidi shows up later on as a third party to complicate things. When you beat the game, Percel proudly proclaims victory!
The player characters in both games are also this. While they take part in events of the anime/manga, it's largely to make sure things go as they should be. The time patroller is mainly taking part in a plot that largely goes well beyond the scope of what Goku and the others are dealing with.

The cast of Friends includes a great number of minor characters and guest stars who serve as love interests for the main characters, but only a handful last more than an episode or two. Of all the secondary characters, only Mike (Paul Rudd) convincingly suggests a character whose life does not revolve around the main characters. Although one of the stars, Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) also repeatedly implies that she has a very strange life going on off-screen.
Pete Becker, the billionaire thirtysomething software tycoon and Monica's short-term love interest also had a lot going on off-screen, given the small snippets of his real life that we see.
The One with... The Ultimate Fighting Champion had Robin Williams and Billy Crystal as "Thomas" and "Tim" who take up space in the usual sofa the titular Friends sit on in Central Perk. They proceed to have a very eccentric discussion about their lives which leads to Joey interrupting causing Tim to realize Thomas had been sleeping with his wife. They then promptly leave and are never mentioned again.

There are many examples in Sgt. Frog, the biggest one likely being Yamato and Kapuu. Yamato is a boy who found a creature called Kapuu, and alongside his friends, went in many adventures with him, even going to magical worlds and space, and fighting against evil Yokai. Kapuu had a verbal tic, and claimed to be a hero of justice, but was actually quite clumsy and couldn't even swim, in spite of resembling a frog. Yamato also has his own supporting cast of friends. And, yet, he was just a one-shot Keroro character in both the anime and the manga. Fuyuki meets him right after Kapuu had disappeared for unknown reasons, and notes the similarities between their stories. The manga version of the story even ends with a report where Fuyuki writes about how he realized now that the world didn't spin around him, and other stories similar to his own could happen elsewhere, basically Lampshade Hanging this trope, for readers who hadn't understood the point of the story.
In the anime, Yamato is voiced by Rika Matsumoto, Pokemon's Ash original voice actress, and the episode title used a "De Arinsu" verbal tic, rather than Keroro's "De Arimasu". The narrator even had to make it clear that the viewer still was watching Keroro after a few minutes into the episode, before the recurring Keroro characters appeared in the story.
The third movie ends with Dark Keroro traveling to another planet, while followed by his former subordinates, and, while infiltrating the planet to start a new invasion, he's found by a couple of siblings very similar to Fuyuki and Natsumi in a similar way to the events of Keroro's first episode, with the implication that a similar story will happen there.
In addition to that, several of the Captain Ersatz and Expy characters in the show are shown to have their own off screen adventures, like Baio's and Ouka's Street Fighting battles which are acknowledged several times in the anime and manga. Ouka even reveals that she had already faced non human opponents in the manga (while having flashbacks to thinly disguised versions of several of the odder characters from Street Fighter III). Meanwhile, Orara, a Keronian Goku expy, stopped by the Hinata's once and defeated a villain that collected planets, all while preparing for a tournament that would take place in the secret Alien Street on Earth.
There are other Keronian platoons, like the Garuru platoon, as well as individual Keronians, like the invader salesman Urere, who are often in their own missions for the army and invasions in other planets, only sometimes crossing path with the Keroro platoon when they visit Earth for one reason or another.

Human Curiosity has a few, including Lukas (a man who comes from a long line of members of the Swiss Guard, and who rescues and temporarily protects Liechtenstein from the HCS) and several nations such as Russia, who were vital in helping everyone escape from the HCS facility. Among other things, sequel fic has several chapters telling their stories.

A number of examples on Babylon 5, notably Captain Maynard and the EAS Cortez notably featured, a huge exploration ship which served the more traditional Star Trek role of exploration. It's indicated that they spend so much time out exploring, that most EarthForce personnel will be fortunate to see one in person once. To hammer the point home, much of Maynard's time spent visiting Babylon 5 had him and Sheridan trading stories about what they'd done over the years since they last met.

Thunderball is the only film where we see all the double-O agents in one place, at M's briefing. When SPECTRE threatens the world with nuclear bombs, M sends all the agents to different parts of the world hoping to find and disarm the bombs. Bond just happens to be the one who finds them.

Inspector Zenigata of the Lupin III series stars in his own live-action dramas where he gets ensnared into several dangerous cases that were made to look like Lupin was the culprit. Zenigata, being the premier Lupin expert, sets out to prove his nemesis was being framed and it shows that when he's not on Lupin's trail, Zenigata really is the most accomplished detective on the force.

To say that Norman, immortal bodyguard supreme to Mighty Max, has led an interesting life would be an understatement. It seems he has actually been the basis of most of the heroic folktales and myths on Earth, canonically having been Thor, Hercules, and Gilgamesh at various points (though whether he was the actual hero or a stand-in when said hero was doing something else was left open for debate). Odds are if an episode's Big Bad's scheme involves reviving some ancient destructive evil, Norman had a hand in putting them down the first time, and said creature tend to view this as "Round 2."

In the Dragonriders of Pern series, Menolly and Piemur are literally this; as well as appearing here and there in the books, they have their own trilogy that runs concurrently with the first three books. This in turn causes major characters from the first few books who appear in the Harper Hall books to themselves be heroes of another story.

Sailor Moon:
Minako has quite the story on her own in Codename: Sailor V, and only enters the main one after its end. And the manga implies she still has some adventures off-screen in which Sailor Moon is her sidekick.
Haruka and Michiru are usually living their own adventure while the protagonists are in Tokyo. In the anime they even leave after the third season specifically to do this.

Meanwhile, in Catherine itself, Vincent's friends and other assorted possible drinking buddies are each going through drama that's led to them experiencing the same nightmare world trials that Vincent starts finding himself in at the start of the game. Most of them need a bit of outside help (i.e. a confidante, namely Vincent) to have the will to get through their struggles, but most of what they go through over the course of the game is offscreen and independent of the central plot.

In Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, Gangrel scholar Beckett is only in LA to investigate the rumors of the Ankaran Sarcophagus, and bumps into you on occasion to offer advice. He's up to a lot in the bigger scheme of the Old World of Darkness, though, and indeed he's one of the main heroes of the Vampire setting.

Justified':
The fifth season gives us DEA Agent Alex Miller, essentially an older, more world weary version of protagonist, Raylan Givens. It's very easy to imagine that Miller's past is as exciting as Raylan's present, with recurring villain Hot-Rod Dunham as his Boyd Crowder.
The series also has Raylan's fellow US Marshals, Rachel Brooks and Tim Gutterson. If some of the hints they let drop are indicative, Tim, and Rachel are dealing with cases that are every bit as interesting as the ones that end up on Raylan's desk.

The Cabin in the Woods takes this to the extreme. The eponymous cabin, the teenagers who visit it, and the zombies hunting them down? That's only one of dozens of other monster attacks happening all over the world on the same night. We only get to see the destructive aftermath for most of these, but we do see a couple glimpses of some Japanese grade-schoolers being terrorized by a ghost and then turning the ghost into a frog with a magic spell.

Miles Edgeworth does engage in interesting adventures and cases on his own — it's just that the main games of the franchise focus on Phoenix's and Apollo's point of view. Fortunately, you get to see some of Edgeworth's cases in his own two games.

Maximum Carnage shows this trope too, as both the Avengers and the Fantastic Four are specifically mentioned as being away. At one point, Spidey and Venom break into the FF's headquarters while they're away to steal a sonic weapon to fight Carnage. Later, Captain America shows up to lend a hand, and the rest of the Avengers finally return just in time to mop up after Carnage is defeated.

In Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Samus is just one of four bounty hunters summoned for the mission, and it's clear that they all knew of each other and had possibly worked together before. Sadly, all of the others' stories end with them becoming villains of this one.
