* In ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' and ''{{Ashes to Ashes}}'' both homicide rooms were populated by ghost extras (quite ironic in retrospect), as well as the main cast. At one point, Sam Tyler, who believes he's dreaming, suggests he's going to keep on walking until he runs out of faces.

* In ''ComicBook/NewXMen Vol. 2'', ''Academy X'' and ''New X-Men'', there are a number of 'extra' students seen walking in the halls that never speak with the cast or take any notice of any of the things going on in the school. They don't even appear on the squads every students was theoretically part of.

* In ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', the main characters frequently sit in the same coffee house ("Café Nervosa"), and Frasier and Niles especially seem to be visiting it almost daily for years, yet they never seem to be familiar with any of the other customers. Whenever a minor character is introduced by having a main character meet him/her at Nervosa, it's always someone they've never seen before. Apparently Frasier, Niles, Martin, Roz, and Daphne are the only regular customers Nervosa has. This is especially odd considering that Martin's regular pub, "[=McGinty=]'s", is depicted as a place [[IncrediblyLamePun where everybody knows your name]]. Admittedly there's a difference between a pub and a coffee house, but still.

* ''{{Taxi}}'' had a full complement of drivers beyond the half-dozen-or-so actual characters. Once in a very great while, you might see one of them respond to a cab assignment from Louie, but other than that...

* On ''BoyMeetsWorld'', the other students in the main characters' classes often seemed to be in a whole different place altogether. They never really interacted with Cory, Shawn or Topanga or reacted much when one of those three made a scene in class, and the teachers (Mr. Feeny or Mr. Turner) would only call on Cory, Shawn or Topanga in class and were never seen talking with the other students. The latter point was lampshaded in the series finale:

* ''Series/CornerGas'' had several extras, but all they ever seemed to do was mill around in the gas station or the Ruby. One notable extra was Lacey's cook, who never spoke...that is, until an episode in which he got angry and quit, telling Lacey that she never cared about him or even seemed to notice him. He's a real person with real feelings, dammit, and she never even asked him how he was doing in art school!
-->'''Lacey:''' (to Brent) Did you know he was in art school?
-->'''Brent:''' I didn't even know he could talk.

* ''TheMusketeers'': Athos, d'Artagnan, Aramis and Porthos are the only Musketeers ever shown doing anything, even though their regiment is made up of many more soldiers.

* ''TheMusketeers'': Athos, d'Artagnan, Aramis and Porthos are ''Series/TheMusketeers'': You'd be forgiven for thinking that the only Musketeers ever shown doing anything, even though their regiment is main four characters (plus the captain) made up of many more soldiers.the entire Musketeer regiment. The others can be glimpsed around the barracks and occasionally acting as silent backup, but the main characters never interact with them and they all seem to have exactly the same long-haired design.
