Added DiffLines:

* Martha from ''Theatre/{{Heathers}}'' gets to sing "Kindergarten Boyfriend", a solo song where she [[spoiler: mourns the death of her long-time crush and then attempts suicide.]] It's the only song she gets all to herself and, despite what the song title might make you think, [[TearJerker is extremely heartbreaking to listen to.]]
* {{Downplayed}} in ''Theatre/BeMoreChill'': plenty of people who have never listened to the show have at the very least heard of "Michael in the Bathroom". While Michael gets a decent amount of stage time, his big solo song is one of the reasons many people were introduced to the show in the first place.

* Aragog in [[Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical A Very Potter Senior Year]], to the point that they seem to be deliberately invoking BigLippedAlligatorMoment.

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', King George III has nothing to ''do'' plot-wise, but he does get to sing three major songs (all to the same tune).

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', King George III has nothing to ''do'' plot-wise, plot-wise [[note]]aside from mysteriously showing up in "The Reynolds Pamphlet"[[/note]], but he does get to sing three major songs (all to the same tune).


Added DiffLines:

* Most of the students/revolutionaries in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' besides Marius and Enjolras are given little in terms of characterization, or even ''names'', as they're either named exactly once in a quick line (and that includes Enjolras), or [[AllThereInTheManual named in the script alone]]. Nonetheless, they get a rousing FriendshipSong in "Drink With Me", which also contains Grantaire's EstablishingCharacterMoment, when he questions if the revolution is worth dying for.
* In ''Theatre/InTheHeights'', Piragua Guy is present throughout the show but doesn't really interact with any of the other characters in any significant way: he tries to sell Usnavi piragua in "In the Heights", he is present in "Breathe", "96,000", "The Club"/"Blackout", and "Finale", and he's the first person to support Daniella's titular "Carnival Del Barrio" - and that's about all he does for the show. That all being said, he gets ''two'' solo songs: "Piragua" and "Piragua - Reprise".

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/{{Finale}}'', the character of Lucy Everett (whose name is AllThereInTheManual) sings the song "Congratulations!", one of the biggest production numbers in the show. However, the character only makes two more minor appearances, and other than that never appears again.

* Chef Louis's "Les Poissons" from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''.
* Jethro in ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' gets the show-stopper [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oG0a9WFkgzU Through Heaven's Eyes]].
** Also [[ThoseTwoBadGuys the priests]] get the amazing [[IAmGreatSong villain-ish song]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxyOTFQFWQ0 Playing with the Big Boys]]. Seeing how actors Steve Martin and Martin Short were short on lines, it kind of makes sense.
** Moses' mother only appears in the beginning, where she [[MosesInTheBulrushes puts him in the river]] while singing a lullaby (as part of the longer song "Deliver Us"). Despite the small part, they hired famed Israeli singer Ofra Haza to make sure it came out just right.
