* Zazu and the hyenas in ''Disney/TheLionKing'' sequels (the latter don't even appear in [[Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride the first sequel]]). Also Nala, although she didn't have a ton to do in the first movie.

* Your colleagues from school/highschool/university/work/volunteering. While it's likely a few of them will remain lifelong friends, the others will, at best, be reduced to an occasional chat when you meet them by accident on the street. Even with the advent of social networking sites it's unlikely you'll spend any significant amount of time talking to most of them.

** The wolves, despite their prominent role raising Mowgli in the original book, only appear at the beginning of the original film and do not appear at all in the sequel or spin offs. Akela in particular: easily one of the most important characters in the book, here he appears for only a single scene and winds up being incredibly forgettable (he also gets a key appearance in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JungleCubs'' however).

** In the 19th Century, the sun never set on the British Empire. From UsefulNotes/WorldWarI to UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the U.K. lost nearly all of its colonies. It became second fiddle to the United States of America as a naval and economic power (formerly their backyard). Even the English Language is no longer their sole property since some of the best poets, novelists and dramatists of the 20th Century Anglophone were American and Irish (Creator/TSEliot, W. B. Yeats, Hart Crane, Creator/JamesJoyce, Creator/SamuelBeckett, G. B. Shaw), and one of England's biggest cultural contributions came from [[BritishInvasion British musicians]] influenced by ''American rock and roll''. England also became more and more marginal in the Continent and with Brexit, it looks like the U.K. will be demoted even further on the world stage.

* [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo Nemo's]] classmates Sheldon, Tad, and Pearl in ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory''. They weren't exactly major characters in the first film, but they spend much of their appearances in the sequel as [[LivingProp Living Props]] in the class scenes. The Chicken Fish[[note]] you know, the "[[OneSceneWonder OH MY GOSH! NEMO'S SWIMMING OUT TO SEA!!]]" fish from the first film[[/note]] actually has more lines than them!

* Todd in ''[[Disney/TheFoxandtheHound The Fox and The Hound II]]'', where he ends up doing chores, neglected by Copper, and becomes TheWoobie just because he wanted to play with his friend. Justified, since he was the protagonist of the first film, where it focused on his life before and after [[spoiler: his abandonment.]]

* Cut Man and Guts Man, despite being two of the more well known Robot Masters, don't show up at all in the ''Megatainment'' album. There's been talk of making a ''Megatainment Pt. 2'', but ''Music/TheMegas'' have expressed a desire to finish the ''Mega Man 3'' album before they get to work on that, and there's the issue of how they're going to fill it with more than just the songs for those two.[[note]]Time Man and Oil Man were considered, but Entertainment System wasn't all that fond of their songs.[[/note]]

* David Palmer, ''Music/SteelyDan'''s "original" lead singer (he only sang on three tracks on the first album, as well as in concerts) was bumped down to one of several backing vocalists for ''Countdown to Ecstasy''. No surprise that he's gone by ''Pretzel Logic'', since the band had abandoned touring.
* Ron Asheton of ''Music/TheStooges'' was bumped to bass on ''Raw Power''.
* In spite of their popularity and influence, ''Music/UriahHeep'' is less well remembered than other early metal groups, though they probably have more recognition in prog rock circles.
* Zero-G was one of the first ever ''Music/{{VOCALOID}}'''s, and yet he gets the ''least'' amount of recognition (and fanart).
* A factor in guitarist/keyboadist David Gregory's departure from ''Music/{{XTC}}''. Andy Partridge bought a synthesizer that allowed him to create string arrangements, something Gregory had done in the past.
* This happened to Dusty and Frank of ''Music/ZZTop'' on ''Eliminator'': despite them being credited on the album sleeve, Dusty's bass being replaced by keyboards[[note]]"Thug" and its keyboard slap bass that sounds like it escaped from the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' theme being the more obvious one[[/note]] and Frank by drum machines. For all intents and purposes, ''Eliminator'' is a Billy solo album (excepting Dusty's lead vocals on "I Got The Six" and "Bad Girl") with contributions by pre-production engineer Linden Hudson, who contributed drum machine programming and keyboard sequencing, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eliminator_(album) and was alleged to have co-written most of the material, to the point that the band got into a legal conflict that was settled with him being granted the copyright to "Thug"]]. Hudson had also showed Billy some research he'd done previously that most popular rock songs used the tempo of 120 beats per minute, which influenced Billy to write most of the album's songs at that tempo. And when the combination of blues guitar and incongruously synthesised backing tracks sent the album to diamond status, the formula was repeated on ''Afterburner'' and ''Recycler'', and even led to the infamous [[TheNotRemix rereleases of the band's past albums that replaced Frank's drums with drum machines]]. While the band continued using electronic loops and synth elements, Dusty's bass and Frank's actual drums returned to prominence starting with ''Antenna'' and ''Rhythmeen''.

* Hip-Hop DJ's; while still prominent on tours and the mix-tape circuit they have all but disappeared from mainstream media. In fact a cynic could say the same thing about all of the other "pillars of hip-hop".

* Alan Tudyk's roles in Creator/Disney movies have been increasingly cameoish: his first role was as King Candy in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', a minor antagonist [[spoiler:turned BigBad]], followed by the Duke of Weaseletown in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', another minor antagonist. Then Alistar Krei, a [[spoiler:red-herring villain and HonestCorporateExecutive]] in ''Disney/BigHero6'', and then Duke Weasleton, an extremely minor character in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. By ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', he's playing a chicken. Not a talking chicken, mind you - he just makes chicken noises. For the entire movie.
