* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has a ton, to the point that Bikini Bottom only has about twenty or so unique residents.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' series has several Marines who are inconsequential to the plot and can even be killed with no consequence, yet reappear plenty of times throughout the series. Of note is PFC. Chips Dubbo (recognisable due to his deep Australian accent), and Gunnery Sergeant Pete Stacker. Sergeant Johnson also fulfilled this role in the first game, but he became an AscendedExtra for the sequels.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'' has one M'aiq the Lair in the third, fourth, fifth and MMORPG installments of the games as a character who would randomly show up in the game world. The player can ask him about a topic which M'aiq would answer with a humorously ridiculous answer, such as dragons existing but invisible and fly very near the ground which is why you don't see any.
** M'aiq also frequently [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall leans on the fourth wall]] commenting on the game such as the mechanics or removed features from previous games, such as the need to repair armor and weapons.
** Most of the lies by M'aiq actually become true in the later games and M'aiq [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this.
