** Parodied in "A Good Man Goes To War" with Fat One and Fit One to WrongGenreSavvy soldiers who seemed to exist solely for the purpose of proving AnyoneCanDie as they incorrectly believed they weren't red shirts because they weren't generic enough, it says a lot that they were given a chance to [[NominalImportance say their names but refused]].

* ''Series/TheShield'': Detective Ronnie Gardocki had no dialogue in the series pilot, and the actor who portrays him went uncredited. He appeared in about half of the episodes in the first season, and was a "recurring character" up through season four. According to ThatOtherWiki, fans originally suspected he would become a redshirt, and the series writers even toyed with this idea in season 2. However, he survived and graduated to a regular cast member in the last three seasons, becoming increasingly important as the series went on.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Macross}}'' has Hayao Kakizaki and to a larger extent, Maximillian Jenius (Ben Dixon and Max Sterling in ''{{Robotech}}''). Both are given distinctive personalities from the very beginning but frequently get pushed to the sidelines when it's time to focus on the LoveTriangle. They often show up in episodes and have no dialogue or just one line. Despite the fact that Max survives the series, is undoubtedly the most skilled pilot of the cast, and is involved in a milestone plot development (his marriage to Zentraedi Mirya), he gets mostly ignored in later episodes yet again due to the need to resolve the Love Triangle between the main characters. Ironically, Max is the only human character from the original series to show up in sequel (such as ''Macross7'') while the main characters have faded into obscurity.

*** In this same episode, despite possible audience expectation, they surprisingly averted the BlackDudeDiesFisrt trope. Unlike Yeoman Thompson, the Black Guy red shirt was fully restored unharmed during the demonstration of the BigBad's power in this episode. This makes him the mauve shirt for this episode.

** Jory is archetypical. The head of the Starks' personal guard, he has a name, gets a few lines, follows people around a lot, and gets killed halfway through with little fanfare. If such a thing as red or mauve shirts can even be said to exist [[AnyoneCanDie in this setting.]]

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': In confirming that [[spoiler:Director Mace]] was KilledOffForReal in "No Regrets", the showrunners implied that he was created specifically to sacrifice in a situation that requires sacrifice when they're not yet ready to sacrifice anyone on Team Coulson.

** Alejandro is the story’s original mauve shirt, and the only one the author intended as such from the beginning. He has a big scene soon after his first appearance in the “[[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming Second Night]]” chapter and periodically appears or is mentioned throughout the story. GenreSavvy by virtue of having been [[HeroOfAnotherStory the dominant player in an earlier, failed elimination game show]], Alejandro strikes up an OddFriendship with the socially awkward contestant, Beth, and is implied to be [[BigBrotherMentor mentoring her]] on an ongoing basis.
