* Exaggerated in ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyTheMentallyAdvancedSeries''. Quick recap: a cutie mark is supposed to symbolize what a pony's special talent it. Silver Spoon's cutie mark in the MAS is ''literally'' a picture of Diamond Tiara, rubbing it in that she only exists as Diamond's friend/lackey.

** The Fashion Bloggers (Tom & Jen) in the spinoff series ''The Ridonculous Race'' are very similar to Topher in which they had no purpose and were rarely acknowledged by any of the other characters.

to:

* Due to the spinoff series''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsThe Ridonculous Race'' having a different structure from Total Drama, about half of the teams end suffering from this problem with the characters on a team most of the time interacting only with their partner and/or being on the show purely for their conflict:
** The Fashion Bloggers (Tom & Jen) in the spinoff series ''The Ridonculous Race'' are very similar to Topher in which they had no purpose and were rarely acknowledged by any of the other characters.characters.
** Mother & Daughter (Kelly & Taylor) had very little purpose other than their unhealthy relationship with each other. The only conversations they ever had with others is Taylor being mean to the Adversity Twins, and in "Hello and Dubai" when Kelly has a conversation with Dwayne over her parenting, [[spoiler:which also happened to be the episode where she's eliminated]].
** Stepbrothers (Chet & Lorenzo) had virtually no purpose other than to bicker and fight with each other, aside from the occasional one-time conversation with another character, or hanging with the Rockers in their elimination episode.
** The Rockers (Rock & Spud) went through most of their run without interacting with any of the other characters. The only time they did interact with others was in their final episode where they both interacted with the Stepbrothers and Spud briefly interacted with Carrie.
** Just like with Mother & Daughter and Stepbrothers, the Daters/[[spoiler:Haters]] (Stephanie & Ryan) had virtually next to no reason for being in the game other than [[spoiler: their extremely unhealthy and toxic relationship with each other.]] The only other characters that they interact with are Stephanie with Kitty in "Hawaiian Honeyruin" and Ryan with Carrie in his last few episodes as part of their OddFriendship.
** The only purpose Best Friends (Carrie & Devin) had to be on the show was their [[ArcFatigue long drawn out]] WillTheyOrWontThey plotline and as a result they ended up mostly being... There. The only notable interactions they had was both of them with Kitty & Emma and Carrie's OddFriendship with Ryan.
** The Surfer Dudes (Geoff & Brody) never once had a major storyline and pretty much went through the race doing their own thing while being limited to the background most of the time. Very ironic since they ended up interacting the most characters out of their team and [[spoiler: made it all the way to the finale]].

** Rosalie, Jasper, Emmett, Victoria, Esme, and Laurent were all this in ''Twilight''. Rosalie's sole purpose exists to be the [[BlondesAreEvil bitchy blonde]] foil to Bella. Emmett and Jasper serve no purpose but to be husbands to Rosalie and Alice respectively, and Esme is only really there to be Carlisle's wife. Victoria and Laurent, meanwhile, are defined through their interactions with James - Laurent's only purpose is to warn the Cullens how powerful James is, and Victoria acts as James's back-up/mate.

** Amy herself was initially designed almost solely as a girl with a crush on Sonic. Later games and medias have attempted to give her chemistry with other characters, with varying degrees of success.

** [[TomboyPrincess Princess Daisy]] is mostly defined by being Peach's gal pal and a [[ImpliedLoveInterest possible love interest]] to Luigi. While she did get a more energetic personality and a louder voice to go with during the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube games, she still is far from complex. It is still an improvement from her first few playable appearances, where was there was little to differentiate her from Peach. This is less the character's fault but more the consequence of only appearing in multiplayer spinoff games where little to no [[ExcusePlot plot]] or CharacterDevelopment occurs.

*Juliette in "Series/{{Grimm}}". She seemingly only exists in Nick's presence. Despite being a licensed veterinarian, we only see her go to work when it furthers the plot of a case Nick is investigating. We know nothing about her family or where she's from. Her friends on the show consist of Monroe and Rosalie who she met through Nick. The one friend who appears from her past only appeared because she needed Nick's help and disappeared never to be heard from again after the situation was resolved. Juliette is bilingual but this is only revealed when Nick needs a Spanish-speaker to help him with a case based in Mexican lore. When Juliette finally got an independent plot involving [[LaserGuidedAmnesia amnesia that made her forget Nick]] she decided she was in love with Captain Renard, Nick's boss! When [[TheScrappy fan's had had enough]] she was [[PutOnABus put on a bus]] [[spoiler: until the writers could retool the character and bring her back as "Eve" who is a reprogrammed with Juliette's memories and powers, but stripped of her feelings for Nick.]]

* Nodoka Manabe of ''Manga/KOn''. Despite being a major supporting character who is given almost as much screentime as the five main girls, most of her character can be condensed down to being [[TheHero Yui's]] childhood friend and nothing else.
