* Piglet in the first Franchise/WinnieThePooh short, ''Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree''. He appears in the opening theme, but is absent from the actual short itself, and he would not properly show up until two years later in ''Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day''.

* The ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' remake gave special focus to Danny Huston as Poseidon, Luke Evans as Apollo and Alexa Davalos as Andromeda. None of them gets more than about five minutes of screen time. In the latter two cases, the movie underwent extensive re-shoots and their characters ended up severely cut down. There was also considerable hype about some of the other Greek Gods, such as Hestia and Artemis. They would have had only a couple of lines in group scenes.

* In ''Film/XMen'' ''Film/XMen'':



** Angel is featured heavily in all the promotional material, as part of the whole "the original X-Men team in the comics finally together in film". He only has two or three scenes: he refuses the cure and runs (flies?) away; he very briefly shows up at the X-Mansion for the sole purpose of allowing them to state categorically that the school is still open; and finally he [[spoiler: saves his father's life]] during the final battle. He does nothing in between. The promo posters even showed Angel in an X-Men uniform despite the fact that he never officially joins the team (or dons a costume) during the movie.
** The same can be said of Colossus -- he has one line (which is about as long as both of his two lines in ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' combined) and he's really only in the film for the FastballSpecial.
** It should come as a surprise to nobody who saw the movie that several scenes were deleted from the final cut--not unusual in this movie series, but much more noticeable here. This obviously affected how much screen time several characters got.
** Comicbook/{{Gambit}} qualifies for ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''. Like Venom, he has limited screentime, but manages to do a few things (sets/stops a fight between Logan and Sabretooth, takes Logan to the enemy base, saves Logan at a BigDamnHeroes moment).
** Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} counts in the second and third movies, where his screentime is ''greatly'' reduced due to James Marsden's other commitments.
** Creator/AnnaPaquin as Rogue has a total of one scene (and a handful of seconds at that) in the theatrical release of ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''. She even got her own ''Empire'' magazine cover despite the fact that most of her scenes were cut from the final film.

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Jubilee got a fair amount of focus in the advertising along with the co-stars who played the new recruits Cyclops, Jean, and Storm. In the middle of the movie, it looks like she's going to be on the same squad of rookies with Cyclops, Jean, and Nightcrawler, even going with them on their teen rebel mall trip as a heroic team of four to contrast the Horsemen. Then she gets knocked out and left behind at the mansion in the next scene, leaving the others as a PowerTrio instead.

Added DiffLines:

* Though posters for ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'' gave Creator/MerylStreep, who plays Emmeline Pankhurst, top billing and featured her next to Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham-Carter and she was prominently included in the film's trailer, she only appears in person in ''one single scene'' in the entire film and has less than five minutes of screen time.
* The 2010 ReligiousHorror movie ''Camp Hell'' had a case of this with Creator/JesseEisenberg that actually resulted in legal action. One of the movie's posters consisted almost entirely of his face and the title and he was highlighted in the trailer, but his character only appeared in a few flashback scenes. As a result, Eisenberg sued the distributor, Lionsgate Entertainment and Grindstone Entertainment, for fraudulent advertising.

* At the height of the popularity of Comicbook/GrantMorrisonsBatman, DCComics announced that [[Comicbook/{{Robin}} Damian Wayne]] would be joining the cast of ''Comicbook/TeenTitans''. His arrival was heavily promoted and multiple variant covers were created for the issue where he joins, but he was only with the team for a grand total of four issues before being PutOnABus.

* Similarly to the ''VideoGame/WhiteKnightChronicles'' example above, your created character in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has almost no influence on the story, and might as well not even exist. They're not alone in this though. ''Every'' party member in this game except for [[MarySue Elma]] and [[TokenMiniMoe Lin]] seems to exist solely so that you have more than two party members to use.[[labelnote:*]]([[RequiredPartyMember Not that story missions even let you use]] [[CantDropTheHero any of them the vast majority of the time though.]])[[/labelnote]] This is especially jarring considering that this is a sequel to [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles a game]] with a ''very'' well-developed and lovable cast of characters who all had their turn in the spotlight.

** This will often happen when a wrestler is injured in the months between promotion material printing and the actual event. The wrestler can't perform a full match, so they do a squash or have him "attacked" back stage.

** One scene where they do sort of interact with the Rangers outside an ice cream shot, they are shot entirely from behind, which only highlights how the majority of their scenes were shot completely separate from the main show.
