* ''Series/ThePunisher2017'': [[Creator/DeborahAnnWoll Karen Page]]'s appearance in the first season seems to be akin to the same trap that Claire fell into during ''Daredevil'' season 1: she was heavily featured in the marketing, like she was going to be one of the leads...and she only appears in four of the thirteen episodes. This is somewhat the result of two things: 1) Deborah Ann Woll had a busy shooting schedule since she was also appearing in ''The Defenders'', which was shot simultaneously with ''The Punisher'', and 2) Karen is technically a foreigner in ''The Punisher'' as her comics counterpart never crossed paths with Frank at all.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Claire Temple during the first two seasons. She only appears in five out of 13 episodes in the first season, and she doesn't have any big impact on the plot after Matt saves her from the Russians. In the second season, she only has three episodes: an early episode where Foggy approaches her seeking help scouring the hospitals for Matt after he's captured by Frank, and later being asked by Matt and Brett to shelter kids they've rescued from the Hand (and later quitting when the Hand attack, and the hospital covers up the event). In between the two ''Daredevil'' seasons, she also got an extended cameo in the season 1 finale of ''Series/JessicaJones2015''. It wouldn't be until ''Series/LukeCage2016'' that Claire finally began to take on a more prominent role, functioning as Luke's sidekick for the second half of season 1.
* ''Series/IronFist2017'': Ramon Rodriguez gets main credits billing, yet Bakuto has fewer episodes across ''Iron Fist'' and ''The Defenders'' than Madame Gao, who is considered a FakeGuestStar.
* ''Series/TheDefenders2017'': Due to the time constraints of eight episodes, juggling four leads AND a very large supporting cast, the supporting cast kinda get pushed to the wayside and save for Claire, Misty, and Colleen, have about maybe 12 to 15 minutes screentime max. Additionally, the supporting cast in question all get title credits billing if they were billed in the title credits of whatever standalone show they originated in.

* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar''
** The Balrog Tar-Goroth was featured heavily in the game's advertisement, indicating he'd be an major antagonist working for Sauron and sent to hunt down Talion and the Wraith. Turns out in the game itself that he is a secondary villain with no direct relation to the plot - he was awakened by an entirely unrelated event and is causing destruction on his own. [[spoiler:He appears for only two missions very early in the questline he is involved, and he isn't even the ArcVillain, but rather the necromancer Zog the Eternal (who is trying to bind the Balrog to his service)]].
** The Agonizer is a subversion: he got his own trailer, but he follows the exact same rules as every other orc, appears at random, and it's possible to permanently kill him during your first few hours, so he can be made one if the player so chooses.

* In the case of ''Manga/NarutoGaiden'', while Boruto was seen prominently in the promotional material for this spinoff, he has a rather small role whereas his classmate Sarada has become an AscendedExtra.

* Manga/{{Naruto}}:
** Sai in the anime adaptation. While he's an important character during the arc he debuts in, his relevance to the plot and character development pretty much end there, and gets little to do afterwards. Yet lots of openings after his debut still featured him almost as prominently as Naruto and Sakura, despite both his screentime and contribution to the plot being minimal. He's much less featured in the openings(to the point of being absent in some of them) once the anime reached the Fourth Ninja War arc.

* Songbird Serenade in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017'' is featured front-and-center on displays at stores as if she is the protagonist, has her own plush toy, a large plastic doll, and a lot of other miscellaneous merchandise, but she appears only at the beginning, for one scene halfway through, and for the first credits song, with very little plot relevance. Undoubtedly this is to draw in fans of Music/{{Sia}}, as she voices Songbird and is the basis for her design. Averted with the advertisement not related to the toys though, in which she is either in the background or absent entirely.

* Jeanette from ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks: [[PunnyName The Squeakquel]]'': The boys and her sisters all get ample screen time, whereas Jeanette seems to fall by the wayside. Older fans know her from the 1980s cartoon as a genius, but this never really comes out. She's never seen without her sisters, and she gets about 5 minutes of screentime that isn't singing. Fortunately, she gets significantly more screen time in the third movie. Dave as well actually has much more of a minor role than the film let on, as he's hospitalized for nearly all of it. The main human in the movie is actually a relative of his played by Zachary Levi.

** Odd example with Comicbook/DoctorStrange's role in ''Film/ThorRagnarok''. He only appears in one scene in the first act, and most of the promotion for the movie made sure to avoid exaggerating the size of his role. However, the preview for the movie included in the guide for the D23 expo definitely tried to make it seem like Strange had a much larger part than he actually does, likely due to the success of his [[Film/DoctorStrange solo movie]]:
-->If you need even more intergalactic, world-saving action, ''Thor: Ragnarok'' in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.
