*''OrphanBlack'' puts Kira on the bus for pretty much all of season 3 after the previous season's central conflict revolved around her.

* This increasingly became an issue in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' with regards to Castiel: as his bonds with the brothers increased and his dealings with heaven became more and more fraught, it began to make less and less sense over the seasons that he didn't just stick around with the brothers full time. However, the showrunners were very unwilling to have him around ''all'' the time, as it'd interfere with the core dynamic of the show, the brotherly relationship between Sam and Dean. Because of this, each season from season 6 onwards had to come up with something for Cas to do in the episodes he wasn't in, usually involving him getting involved in often-{{Handwave}}y angel drama. This was also not well received by parts of the fandom however, as said angel drama tended to involve Cas being hurt, badly, over and over. Season 11 however finally gave up that whole excuse and had Cas staying in the bunker, justifying his non-presence on cases by having the brothers comment that he's busy healing up and, to many Cas fans' relief, enjoying himself binge-watching tv shows on Netflix.

* ''Series/{{Lost}}'' with its LotsAndLotsOfCharacters frequently leaves out the people who're supposed to be present at the main camp, but don't feature in the episode's story.

* This happened to just about every kid on any ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, with the exception of [[CreatorsPet Wesley Crusher]], and possibly [[TheScrappy Naomi Wildman]]. It was especially noticeable on [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]], where Sisko could come home and find anyone but his son Jake sitting on the couch. (Though note that for most of the show's run, Jake was a fairly responsible teenager and wouldn't necessarily need much adult supervision.)

Eventually the trope stopped applying altogether when Jake turned 18 and moved into his own place.

[[AC:ComicBooks]] * A quite literal example from ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons'', where Lisa refuses to take part in a reality show Homer's gotten onto as part of community service ([[ItMakesSenseInContext long story]]), and is promptly shoved onto a bus by the director and taken to a camp before she can object further. She's not seen again for the rest of the issue, although Homer does eventually [[SomethingWeForgot notice she's missing]] at the very end.

* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' when [[TheMentor Wayne]] would be mentioned to be in some foreign country for no adequately explained reason whenever the writers needed Terry to handle things on his own. ** Unlike ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', where it was rarely explained why some of the original seven members were not on the world-saving mission of the week.

* For that matter, this became a problem on the series finale of ''Series/{{Angel}}''. The story goes that David Boreanaz was upset that Creator/SarahMichelleGellar declined appearing. Apparently it was actually JossWhedon who rejected her invitation to guest star, not wanting her character to detract from the spotlight.
