A one-shot or one-off character is a character who appears in only one episode of a series, after which they are never seen again. Very common in WalkingTheEarth and various [[MysteryOfTheWeek Of The]] [[MonsterOfTheWeek Week]] shows. LongLostUncleAesop from a VerySpecialEpisode is one example, as is the GirlOfTheWeek for any hero who suffers the CartwrightCurse. In a movie, the one-shot can be anything from a SpearCarrier to a OneSceneWonder.

Sometimes a one-shot becomes [[EnsembleDarkhorse so popular]] he gets a {{cameo}} later in the series, or he becomes a [[AscendedExtra recurring extra]], or sometimes a [[BreakoutCharacter full-blown cast member]]. Infrequently, what seems like a one-shot may actually be a [[ChekhovsGunman Chekhov's Gunman]].

The opposite would be RegularCharacter; compare also RecurringCharacter.

Please do '''not''' add examples; we don't need any, since this is such a universal concept.
