Added DiffLines:

** While the Crimson Chin isn't nearly as prominent in later episodes as he's been earlier in the series' run, he hasn't suffered the fate as much as Timmy's ''other'' favorite superhero, Crash Nebula.

** Timmy Turner's best friends, Chester and A.J. In the beginning, both of the boys were major characters with early episodes that centered on Timmy's friendship with these two; since Season 7 onward they appear very sporadically, often in non-speaking roles. A.J. seems to have suffered worse from this trope.

Added DiffLines:

** Pretty much every character introduced before the series' cancellation aside from Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Timmy's parents, Jorgen, and Mr. Crocker appear sparingly after the un-cancellation.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Archer}}'' : Woodhouse makes markedly fewer appearances as the show progresses. With more and more episodes focusing on missions abroad, and sometimes continuing abroad across multiple episodes, his role has shifted from one of the ensemble in scenes at Archer's apartment to mostly cutaway gags. He's probably referenced more than he appears, especially in Season 5. He failed to appear in season 6 at all. His absence eventually became a RunningGag.

Not only did he continue to fail to show up for Season 7, but he wasn't even ''acknowledged'' once in the aforementioned.

** While we're dealing with ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', and related to the Avatar figures example above: Under Mattel, Tecna and Musa were never represented as much as their fellow Winx in the doll lines. Some lines even omitted Tecna altogether, but their biggest sin was when they released the Singsational line... and released Musa (the ''musical'' fairy) behind the others. (Also, the only doll they ever released outside of the main fairies was one of Sky.) Italian licensee Giochi Preziosi, and later Rainbow Toys, appear to have been a bit better with equal representation in the doll lines, at least with the fairies (they even made dolls of the Trix).



** Griffin in ''[[TheMovie The Secret of the Lost Kingdom]]'' and beyond.

** The pixies are often subject to this. In season 2, they served as fairly important characters to the plot. In season 3, barring their ADayInTheLimeLight episode, they serve mainly as comic relief alongside Kiko. In season 4, the are reduced to one episode, and are completely absent in season 5. They return in season 6, but as comic relief again, and two of their members are replaced with CanonImmigrant from [[SpinOff Pop Pixie]].
** Mirta. Some of the events from season 1 revolving around her character, culminating in leaving Cloudtower for Alfea, suggested that she was going to be the sixth Winx girl. For some unexplained reason and despite having a good friendship with all of them (especially Flora), she never became part of the group. She does manage to get a cameo multiple times, establishing she's still around.

** Hayley, particularly from Season 3 on. Compare her screen time with Francine's, Steve's, or Roger's. Arguably because the show switched from politics driven to character/story emphasis, and her personality wasn't much developed other than as the [[StrawCharacter strawman liberal]]. Starting from Season 9, she's been receiving more focus compared to her screen time from the last few seasons. To the point where in Season 11 she had the 2nd largest number of episodes focused on her after Stan.
