Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Roswell}}'' does better but still the only characters to appear in every episode are Liz, Max and Michael. (Tess appears in every episode of Season 2, the only one where she's a regular.) Maria and Isobel miss an episode each in Season 3 (as does Jesse, who only appears in that season) and Isobel also misses one in Season 2, while Alex, Kyle and Valenti are frequently absent.

* ''Series/HawaiiFive0'' is pretty much guaranteed to have Steve and Danny in every episode,[[note]]Except for a bit of the second season where Creator/AlexOLoughlin (Steve) was out due to a shoulder injury and later rehab for pain med addiction from said injury[[/note]] but other characters may or may not appear. Kono and Chin are in most, but not all, episodes; after their PromotionToOpeningTitles, Max, Jerry, and Grover are ''usually'' present, but have plenty of non-appearing episodes.[[note]]Of these, Max seems most likely to be missing, and generally has the shortest scenes if it's not a LowerDeckEpisode; this may have something to due with Creator/MasiOka's schedule and the fact that he has projects in both California and Japan as well as Hawaii.[[/note]] If one of them is absent, other characters may mention they received information from them (particularly in the case of Max, who as the medical examiner ''should'' be present whenever they're dealing with a dead body; it's not AlwaysMurder, but it's More Often Than Not Murder). Other series regulars, like Kamekona, may go many episodes without so much as a blip and then reappear with little to no fanfare.

** One episode had Eddy telling Edd that the fake post-it notes from his parents were planted by Kevin (it was actually Ed and Eddy playing a prank on him). Edd lampshades that Kevin didn't even appear in that episode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' has no characters who appear in all sixty-five episodes; Mandrake, who is only absent from one episode, comes closest to achieving this. In most cases, a character's non-appearance in an episode is unexplained, but there's a scene at the beginning of "One of the Guys" where Jedda is mentioned to have been taken ill, leaving Rick and LJ to take her place supervising Kshin's class field trip. And Ming's absence from much of the "Prince Kro-Tan" arc needs no explanation for anyone who's seen all five episodes in that arc.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}} has the following examples:
** Merklynn is absent from "The Dark Hand of Treachery", "The Price of Freedom" and "Feryl Steps Out".
** Cryotek, Ectar and Witterquick are absent from "Feryl Steps Out".
** Though all fifteen members of the regular cast are seen in "The Overthrow of Merklynn", Galadria, Arzon and Feryl only appear in non-speaking roles.
** Cravex, Darkstorm, Mortdredd, Reekon and Virulina are absent from "Horn of Unicorn, Claw of Dragon", the implication being that they were all affected by the [[MysticalPlague Magical Plague]] which sweeps Prysmos in the episode, though this is only confirmed with Darkstorm and Mortdredd.

** Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) was left out of "Kinda" because she was wasn't written in it and the writer did not want to change the plot to include her.

to:

** Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) was left out of "Kinda" because she was wasn't written in it and the writer did not want to change the plot to include her. She does appear briefly in the first and last episodes; her absence from the rest of the story is explained as being due to "mild mental disorientation" which means she needs forty-eight hours of undisturbed rest.

* In the first seasons of ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', Dick York had gotten injured and could not stand during the filming of the show. So, the writers constantly had to either transform him into different items like a monkey or have him out of town on business.

* This also happened with Meredith Baxter-Birney on ''Series/FamilyTies'', but not with Phylicia Rashad on ''TheCosbyShow''. Because an obstetrician/gynecologist and a lawyer who live in a two-story Manhattan brownstone and already have several children can't possibly afford another kid.
* ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' had this occur more than once. Some episodes had Kevin Sorbo not appear in order to give Iolaus ADayInTheLimelight. During the fourth season, though, health issues sidelined Sorbo for many episodes. He still appeared often with the focus was on other characters, but he doesn't appear at all in "Men in Pink," a [[Creator/BruceCampbell Autolycus]]/Salmoneus comedic episode. (Iolaus does not appear in this episode either, but Michael Hirst still turns up in a major role. Playing a woman...)
