** Even his ''Teen'' self can't escape it: In ''Comicbook/AllNewXMen'' his role in volume 2 has consisted entirely of worrying/griping about his girlfriend, Comicbook/{{X 23}}, throwing herself into danger. And being her taxi.

* Lady Sif from ComicBook/TheMightyThor is supposed to be a badass LadyOfWar and the second greatest female warrior in Asgard. Sadly, despite nearly every other supporting character being well developed over the decades, Sif's stories have focused almost exclusively on Thor with only a few making an attempt to give her any personality beyond that. A notable exception being the 2012-2013 run of ''ComicBook/TJourneyIntoMystery'' which had Sif as its main character. The writer, Kathryn Immonen, explored Sif's personality and embarked her on various badass (and mostly Thor-unrelated) adventures. Sadly, the series was then cancelled due to low sales.

* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' has [[spoiler:Clint Barton's wife and kids]]. Her only role in the plot is that the gang uses their home as a safehouse ([[spoiler:since Nick Fury had erased the existence of Barton's family from SHIELD's records to keep them safe]]).

* Prince Edward from ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' parodies it from the usual Franchise/DisneyPrincess. However, [[spoiler: it was averted in one scene where after his kiss didn't wake up Giselle; Edward realized he wasn't the one for her and immediately asked Robert to do it, showing he is open-minded and not above putting Giselle's well-being over his own. And after Giselle woke up, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy he was genuinely happy]] for the two of them.]] [[spoiler: And in the epilogue, he [[PairTheSpares hooks up with Robert's girlfriend Nancy.]]]]

%%* Adam in ''Film/MorningGlory''. This troper had to look up the character's name just to list it here. * Sort of in ''Film/PainAndGain''. Daniel is partially motivated to the crime to get with one of the sexy clients he trains, but she is never seen or mentioned again after the gang kidnaps Kershaw. Played straight, however, with Sorina.

%%* Adam * Bonnie in ''Film/MorningGlory''. This troper had to look up ''Film/OnlyAngelsHaveWings''. The story is about Geoff the character's name just to list it here. * Sort of in ''Film/PainAndGain''. Daniel is partially motivated to studly pilot and his fellow studly pilots, and their dinky little airline that makes highly dangerous flights over the crime to get with one of Andes Mountanins and back. Bonnie arrives in town for...some reason the sexy clients he trains, but she is movie never seen or mentioned again after specifies. She has a job doing...something the gang kidnaps Kershaw. Played straight, however, movie never specifies. She falls in love with Sorina.Geoff. The pilots continue to make perilous flights into the interior of South America and back; tragedy strikes and new friendships are formed. At the end Bonnie is--still in love with Geoff, having hung around throughout the movie but hardly affecting the story at all.

* As [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-great-love-stories-in-movies-guys/ Cracked.com]] points out: --> "Lots of comedies have a love interest in their B stories. They're tacked on so Ben Stiller or Vince Vaughn have someone to kiss after they do something funny" * ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' has [[spoiler:Clint Barton's wife and kids]]. Her only role in the plot is that the gang uses their home as a safehouse ([[spoiler:since Nick Fury had erased the existence of Barton's family from SHIELD's records to keep them safe]]).

** Jeremy Johnson used to qualify. Earlier episodes gave him no purpose other than being a bright spot in Candace's life, but recent episodes develop him more. He's shown to have his own life and friends, and is savvy to Candace's freak outs. He's even got extensive interaction with other characters up to and including [[HarmlessVillain Dr. Doofenshmirtz.]]

The answer to what he's doing when not being a love interest is [[{{Workaholic}} "Probably working, usually at Mr. Slushy Burger, or maybe teaching guitar lessons, or being a lifeguard."]]

* ''Series/CooperBarrettsGuideToSurvivingLife'': Josh's wife Leslie and Cooper's neighbor Kelly are both this in the first episode. They only interact with their love interests, and don't mention anything that isn't directly related to those love interests. Averted from the second episode on; Leslie and Kelly end up becoming fast friends and we find out more about their lives that don't have anything to do with men.

* In ''Film/{{Cherry 2000}}'', the title character is a RobotGirl with a ''very'' limited AI (she probably wouldn't pass a Turing Test). The whole plot of the movie is the hero's trek to find a body to replace her lost one. She only appears for a few minutes of the movie, and is unceremoniously dumped to save the female tracker who the hero fell in love with during the journey. ** Since she's a sexbot, she's more or less ''supposed'' to be this. Dumping her in favor of a real person is character development; if she had a personality it would be more of a KickTheDog moment.

This was inevitable, though- she only appeared in the last minute of the short (which normally runs for four minutes) , had only one line of dialogue, and never appeared again for the rest of the series.
