* Due the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', the titular protagonists are sometimes sidelined for other plots. (Though at least one of them is present in every episode.)

* A strange example in ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''. In season 4, Max (Jake T. Austin) has been turned into a girl through magic (and thus played by a female actress) for most of it due to Jake T. Austin taking a break for school.

* Despite the first two being present from day one in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueWar'' and the latter joining in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueThroneOfAtlantis'', Green Lantern, Shazam, and Aquaman are nowhere to be seen in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueVsTeenTitans''; in fact, unlike GL and Shazam, Aquaman even isn't even mentioned, though it's likely his duties as Atlantis's king is why he's not helping the League in ''Vs. Teen Titans''.

For some reason, we have an AbsenteeActor for a character (main or bit) whose presence would be either plot-relevant or at least plausible in the episode, and is completely absent for the episode. They don't even get a non-speaking cameo even though they should be involved with the plot at hand, or at least present in the location. It stretches belief for Bob and Alice to have a long chat in Mary's Bar and there be no Mary in sight (especially since it turns out she and Alice were just revealed to be fraternal twins separated at birth last episode).

Added DiffLines:

* Music/DaYoopers' ''We're Still Rockin''', their first album with second guitarist Jim Bellmore, also has Bellmore playing bass. This is because bassist Doc Bradbury had just left, and the band had yet to replace him due to a touring hiatus at the time. A couple years later, they found Reggie Lusardi as a road bassist, but for the most part, Bellmore continued to play the bass parts in studio.

* Since ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, no one makes it into every episode, but of particular note is Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran) who appears in barely half of the first 50 episodes and is the only surviving member of the original main cast to be completely absent from Season 5.
