* ''Film/StarWars'': Queen, later Senator, Amidala's assorted handmaidens qualify as living props as their main story function is to follow Amidala around and provide a stylish backdrop for her more flamboyant fashions.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' generally defies this trope, as there have been episodes focusing not only on almost all of the recurring characters, but also on the unnamed extras and even the ''inanimate objects'', with the exception of Rob the Cyclops. He's been in Gumball's class since the early reel, yet he has no personality, has never played an important role in any of the plots, and has only spoken once over the entire run of the show so far. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in "The Party", in which he gets offended when Gumball and Darwin get his name wrong, so [[ComedicSociopathy Darwin pushes him into a sewer.]]

** Until they all got killed by random flaming arrows in a season 5 time-jump...
*** The writers referred to these remaining un-ascended characters as "socks," and were happy to be rid of them, freeing them up to focus the remainder of the series on the main cast and their nonsensical endgame.

* All of the other members of the Sweathogs' class in ''WelcomeBackKotter.'' They were there simply because a high school class of only five students, especially in Brooklyn, would be unbelievable.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of Nemo's classmates in the class scenes in ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. Only a select few of them have any individual speaking lines, if they even speak at all. In [[WesternAnimation/FindingDory the sequel]], Tad, Sheldon, and Pearl join them in a particularly big example of DemotedToExtra, remaining completely voiceless outside of speaking in unison with all the other kids.

* There are a number of such characters in ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', mostly recurring townspeople and the students in D.W.'s class. Like a pair of rabbit kids who've been in Arthur's class since season 1, but are not as developed as their classmates (in 14 seasons, the male one has only talked twice, and the female one ''never!''). ''[=MacFrensky=]'' had a class list with the names [[spoiler: Alex & Maria]] on it, but some fans refuse to believe those are their names, since Arthur has had several other one-shot classmates over the years (never mind that the two rabbits were ''the only other two kids besides the already named regulars shown in class in that episode'').

* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'': Lampshaded in "Creepy Ponnie" when Ponnie claims to be one of the students who don't say anything and only shrug ("shruggers", as Tori calls them). When Tori asks them if they know Ponnie, [[ExactlyWhatIsSaysOnTheTin they only shrug.]]
