* ''Film/GhostInTheShell'': The members of Section 9 have their own posters and their actors, including CanonForeigner Ladriya, revealed details about their characters while promoting the movie. With the exception of the Major, Batou and Aramaki, the rest barely have some screentime in the movie itself.

* ''Film/MenInBlack III'' has Lily, the FanserviceWithASmile girlfriend of villain Boris played by Nicole Scherzinger. She only appears to free Boris in the opening sequence, then he unceremoniously dumps her by letting her be [[ThrownOutTheAirlock sucked into vacuum]]. In a sense, there's also Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K. Agent K does have a significant role in the movie...but it's the ''[[TimeShiftedActor young]]'' Agent K, played by Josh Brolin, whereas Jones is only in the beginning and end.

* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' the cover, advertising and loading screens all feature an [[SexSells attractive blonde in a skimpy bikini]]. Some people think that this is supposed to be the minor character of Tracey De Santa, making it this trope. The other possibility is that she is just a [[LadyNotAppearingInThisGame Lady Not-Appearing-in-This-Game]].

* "Bart Star" was advertised as a {{Crossover}} with ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' even though Hank Hill is on screen for mere seconds. It probably set a record for shortest {{Crossover}} ever made. Additionally, WordOfGod says these shows don't exist in the same Universe, making it even weirder.

** In ''VideoGame/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.
** The Avatar from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem]]'' is similar. Despite being promoted by trailers as a major mechanic (create your own Fire Emblem character), the Avatar 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.]]

* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', Navarre is often advertised alongside the rest of the player's group of Samurai. However, while they are all important characters, Navarre bows out of the story after the first dungeon and is never mentioned again save for one unimportant sidequest. ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse Apocalypse]]'', on the other hand, seems to be giving him plot importance and limited playability, possibly subverting the trope.

* Missile, the adorable Shiba Inu from VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney is often seen in posters and other such advertisements and is even with Phoenix and Maya in Marvel Vs.Capcom 3, however, he has only one appearance during the original trilogy and the scene he appears in is optional.
** He does, however, appear briefly in both VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth spinoffs.
* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'''s Rena Ryuuguu is featured in all promotional art, crossovers, side-games and is practically synonimous with the entire ''Franchise/WhenTheyCry'' franchise. She's only really, truly important for two arcs out of eight.

* ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMrFox'': Owen Wilson plays the coach at the animals' school, appears in one scene with a few lines, and that's it. He's still mentioned on the cover of the DVD box as if he were playing a major character.

* ''{{Series/Riverdale}}'' has Josie Mccoy listed as a main cast member, and appears in it's buffer promos for The CW. But she appears in only seven episodes of the first season. This is less than Kevin Keller, who is a guest that appears in all thirteen.



** With a show called ''Ride/MickeysPhillharmagic'', you'd expect Mickey Mouse to be the main character. In reality, although his presence is still there throughout the attraction, he only shows up twice at the beginning and the ending. The real star happens to be Donald Duck.
