* Gigi on ''GilmoreGirls.'' After she served her convenient function of breaking up Christopher and Lorelai/making Lorelai angst in seasons 2 & 3, she was always conveniently at Grandma's or whatnot. This was especially glaring in season 7 when Lorelai and Christopher moved in together, got ''married'' and still Gigi was being shuttled off to Grandma's/Paris, etc.

* {{RPG}}s often feature the Too Powerful for This Episode camp for {{Crutch Character}}s and the like. For example, in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem 9 and 10]] (the GC and Wii games), Caineghis is unavailable most of the time because he's dealing with something that's more important than large-scale wars that are embroiling his country. While some speculation is possible, it's never really spelled out what he's doing.

** Mordin Solus, another squad member in the second game, also doesn't appear in ''Citadel'', [[spoiler: even if he's convinced to go along with the sabotage on Tuchanka, averting his otherwise-unavoidable PlotlineDeath. This is probably due to him being too busy working on the Crucible as well as his faked death needing to remain classified in order for the alliance with the Krogan to hold.]]

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
