* In recent years, movies featuring small critters in a brief role (such as Santa Claus's elves in ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'', the lemmings in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' and the Kakamora in ''Disney/{{Moana}}'') feature their few scenes at the end of every commercial, making them appear like [[WesternAnimation/DespicableMe Minion]]-esque mascot characters featured in multiple funny/slapstick scenes during the movie when they actually have a very small role.

* 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.

** Despite being the BigBad (and therefore prominently featured on advertising and merchandise), Yoshikage Kira's original appearance is only seen for two arcs before he adopts a disguise. Even ''VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle'' demoted Kira's real face to DLC, while his Kosaku persona is presented as his default look.

** Yukako Yamagishi is prominently featured in all three of the anime openings despite only appearing in a handful of episodes, a few of which only have her in brief {{Cameos}}s with minimal dialogue. Her part wasn't any bigger in the original manga, where she still managed to appear on quite a few chapter covers.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'': Jedi Master Atris and Sith Lord Darth Nihilus were both featured prominently in advertisements for the game, with some promotional images depicting them locked in a lightsaber duel. Neither features particularly prominently in the game - with characters like Kreia, Atton, Bao-Dur and G0-T0 all appearing more than they do - though both are undoubtedly important to the plot. Doubles as CoversAlwaysLie, thanks to a piece of promotional art which showed the two characters in a lightsaber duel. [[spoiler: They're never even in the same place at the same time]].

** The Avatar from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemArchanea 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.]]
