* In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'''s Spartan Ops co-op campaign, Covenant remnant leader Jul 'Mdama is never seen in combat, despite the fact that as a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Elite]], he likely [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority earned his rank through his personal asskicking abilities]]. ** He's finally forced into the fray in ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians, [[spoiler:but it ends poorly for him, due to having the bad luck of going against Jameson Locke, one of the UNSC's very best Spartan-[=IVs=]]].

Villainous counterpart to TakeYourTime. Compare NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering. Contrast RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething and FrontlineGeneral. The opposite of this is RiskingTheKing. Not to be confused with - though principally very similar to - BiggerBad. See also ThePawnsGoFirst for when the BigBad chooses to let their minions fight a particular battle for a while before intervening. Similar to OffstageVillainy, where we only know the villain is evil because the author says so; with Orcus On His Throne, we only know the villain is ''dangerous'' because the author says so. May lead to ItsPersonalWithTheDragon, since if the BigBad is spending all his time offscreen seemingly doing nothing, than his enforcers who are doing the work may become the target of the hero's ire.

Typo in the name of Elsa
** The Brigand Leader spends [[spoiler:her]] entire time in the back office of the brigands' fortified lair in the south of the valley, preferring to act via minions such as the Warlock. It's not until the Hero actually makes his way through the fortress for the final confrontation that it's revealed [[spoiler:that the Brigand Leader is actually a BrainwashedAndCrazy Elsa von Spielberg.]]

** God and Lucifer come across as this - they might intervene in small ways (i.e., via divine or infernal interventions on certain rolls), but will not appear in person (until Armageddon, maybe).

** God and Lucifer come comes across as this - they might intervene like this. His hand will appear in small ways (i.e., via divine or infernal interventions on certain rolls), through Divine Intervention, but will He's not appear taking the field personally till Armageddon - he's only communicated with angels at all twice since the Fall. ** Lucifer, meanwhile, plays with the trope. He is quite active both in person (until Armageddon, maybe).Infernal Interventions and in maintaining Hell's hierarchy, but he doesn't personally involve himself in the fight against Heaven - he spends more time judging his inferiors' success instead. Nonetheless, he can pop up whenever he wants - even if he just happens to wander by and open a stuck door for demons (though this should only happen in a more comedic campaign). He also sometimes speaks to angels, and is rarely openly hostile toward them (though that doesn't mean that that angel isn't now in very serious trouble).

In the villain's defense, [[DystopiaIsHard maintaining order in one's domain can be a really time consuming task]], what with all [[YouRebelScum those Rebel Scum]], [[SurroundedByIdiots stupid henchmen]], [[TheStarscream backstabbing lieutenants]], and the other daily tasks an EvilOverlord has to face everyday. And any tactician will endorse the benefits of a fortified position surrounded by your most powerful servants. Then again, what kind of EvilOverlord doesn't take the time to smell the roses, pillage a village, and give a hero a good FinalBossPreview every once in a while? They deserve a little "me" time, too!

* In ''Film/JupiterAscending'', Balem spends a lot of time sending minions to do his dirty work, but not once do we see him leave the Jupiter refinery.
