* Roberta Tubbs from ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''. She's billed as a main character, yet her screentime is much smaller than the rest of her family. While her counterparts from the sister shows [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Meg]] and WesternAnimation/AmericanDad Haley]] got DemotedToExtra over time, at least they were prominent characters on their respective shows' first few seasons. Roberta was ''never'' prominent to begin with.

* The beginning of ''Celeste and Jesse Forever'' imply the film is going to be evenly split between Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samburg) but after ten minutes they stop hanging out together and the story sticks with Celeste; Jesse remains in the film on and off and he is important to the plot but he's definitely a supporting character in Celeste's story and gets far less screentime overall.

* "Hangover" is supposedly a song by Music/{{PSY}} featuring Music/SnoopDogg. If you heard it without seeing who's credited, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's a Snoop Dogg song with [=PSY=] providing backing vocals.
* "Uptown Funk" is supposedly a song by Mark Ronson, featuring Bruno Mars. However, one could easy think this is simply a Bruno Mars song with any random band playing (as opposed to many modern Santana songs where, despite the fact that he doesn't sing, it is easy to tell they are his songs by the guitar style).

Added DiffLines:

* "The South" by The Cadillac Three gave full credit to guest artists Music/DierksBentley, Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine, and Mike Eli (lead singer of the Eli Young Band), who sing "This is where I was born and this is where I'll die" at a few points throughout the song. However, most of this part was cut from the radio edit, so they are only heard for a few seconds.

* This is a common tactic for comic books as a whole. To boost sales, the covers will often feature prominent illustrations of popular characters, even if the character's appearance in the issue is little more than a cameo. See WolverinePublicity and NeverTrustACover for more.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' had a villain named Kid Carrion, who resembled a zombie cowboy. His appearances in the show's opening suggests that he was intended to be a recurring villain, but his only appearance in the actual series is a silent cameo in "Relax-O-Vision". He doesn't even appear with the other villains in the show's GrandFinale in spite of one-shot villain Invisibo being among them.

Added DiffLines:

* Many of the supporting characters from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' can fall under this, considering posters and other ad's were littered with characters who had only a few (if no) lines and barely any screen time. Yax and Gazelle are particularly guilty of this but the worst offender is probably Flash, who was in only two scenes but had the entire [[BreakoutCharacter teaser trailer centered around him]].

* In ''FireEmblemFates'', Hinoka easily has the least presence in the story of all the siblings from both sides. Unlike all the other siblings, she has barely, if any, impact or presence in the story besides her scenes in the pre-route split chapters and her recruitment chapters in ''Birthright'' and ''Revelation'', meaning that virtually all her screentime is limited to supports and My Castle skits. Hell, its actually been discovered that she has more story lines in ''Conquest'' than in ''Birthright'', her own route! Possibly justified as she was added to the game fairly late into its development, after much of the story had already been finalized.
* My Unit from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem]]'' is similar. Despite being promoted by trailers as a major mechanic (create your own Fire Emblem character), My Unit has very little role in the plot past the Prologue, only existing as a SatelliteCharacter others can provide exposition to, and aren't even required to be in the party for most of the game. The masked assassin Legion is another example: being featured very prominantly in promotional materials and being one of the few new characters to get official art. In the game proper, he's easily the least developed of the QuirkyMinibossSquad, and why he has [[SendInTheClones an army of clones of himself]] is [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment never explained.]]

** NickFury got a lot of presence in the posters and trailers for ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', despite his role being more of a cameo this time around.
** [[spoiler: [[Comicbook/{{Agent 13}} Sharon Carter]]]] in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. She is heavily featured in the merchandise and promotional art for the film as a member of Team Cap, including illustrations of her fighting alongside the others against Team Iron Man. [[spoiler: In the actual film, she never suits up in the uniform she's seen wearing in the illustrations, nor does she officially join Team Cap or fights against Team Iron Man]].
