* A RunningGag in ''BasicInstructions'' is the viewer never gets to see any of superhero Rocket Hat's epic, well, superheroism, just awed after-the-fact descriptions. And then there's [[http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2010/10/14/how-to-react-to-something-amazing.html this comic]], which is one of the most literal examples of this trope ever.

* For many sports, we have precious little footage of the great players of the era before television became widespread.



[[folder: Real Life ]]
* Ever had a time where you've missed out on going to a party, either through choice or because you've not been invited, only to see all your friends post pictures of themselves grinning, and saying how awesome it was?
* This trope can be expected to happen for various reasons. Statistically, lightning strikes the Earth 100 times a second, but since our scope of vision is so small, we may only witness one lightning storm in a year. Similarly, even though our field of knowledge is vastly expanded by TV, there are far more awesome things which will never make it to our eyes.
* Also, due to Stage Fright, a person might be able to perform a stunt when alone, but as soon as they're trying to perform to an audience, they might feel unable to do it. Thus, the audience will never see the awesome stunt they were trying to perform. This is especially true when it involves a pet: "You should see this really great trick my dog can do!" is usually the beginning of a wasted afternoon.

Compare [[{{Anticlimax}} Anti-Climax]], WriterCopOut, and NoodleIncident. Not to be confused with TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot, where the awesome thing in question never actually happened at all.
