* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' had Shakaar, who was mentioned early in the show's run as being Major Kira's former resistance commander. After he actually appeared in person he went from being a dirt farmer to being head of the Bajoran government in one episode, then in his next appearance he revealed that he had fallen in love with Kira who decided she felt the same way. He pops up again when she's giving birth (not his child, or ''hers'') before finally being PutOnABus via offscreen break-up (in-universe WordOfGod told the two they weren't meant to be together). For those keeping count, this was all in the space of three appearances. In this instance the writers actually did like Shakaar (even if the fans didn't) and intended to make him an important recurring character, but actor Duncan Regehr's other work commitments put a halt to this plan.

* Jar Jar Binks is an infamous (to the point of being the German-language TropeNamer for TheScrappy) failed attempt as a KidAppealCharacter in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ThePhantomMenace''. Thankfully, Creator/GeorgeLucas took the hint and severely reduced his screentime in the following prequels. Nowadays, he usually only shows up as [[TakeThatScrappy the butt of cheap jokes]]; and even ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', probably the one place where he's [[ThrowTheDogABone given an ounce of respect]], only features him maybe once a season.

This has even extended into the new Expanded Universe: there, Jar Jar has been reduced to a street clown that many people on Naboo dislike due to his role in the rise of the Empire (since he gave Palpatine emergency powers to raise the Clone Army, setting up the coup in the Great Jedi Purge).

** In his first appearance, Towelie appears to be a parody of this trope. He appears out of absolutely nowhere, the boys react just enough to get him to wander off periodically, and the episode features a fake commercial for Towelie merchandise (including, just in case, "I hate Towelie" T-shirts).

* There were four series in the leadup to ''ComicBook/{{Annihilation}}: Conquest:'' the ''Nova'' ongoing, and the ''Quasar'', ''Star-Lord'', and ''Wraith'' miniseries. Nova was a well-established character, while Quasar and Star-Lord were {{Ascended Extra}}s in the original, but Wraith was a new character. Touted as a new and unique addition to the Cosmic mythos, Wraith instead came off as a mix of Drizzt Do'Urden and Jackie Estacado, with the little depth of both. His miniseries mostly focused around how edgy he was while he got to save the much more likeable Ronan and Kl'rt from TheVirus. Fans, of course, hated this guy, and when ''Conquest'' itself finally rolled around, Wraith was barely in it at all. Upon the series ending, Quasar and Star-Lord got [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy their own series,]] while Wraith [[PutOnABus left to try to cure the Phalanx]] and hasn't appeared since.

* This happens to the (former) [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Crystal Gem]] blacksmith Bismuth, having shown up in trailers for the new season and is promptly bubbled at the end of her own episode.

* Julia Duffy replaced Delta Burke for the 6th season of DesigningWomen as the Sugarbaker's prissy cousin, Allison. The character was very poorly received and was gone by the 7th season premiere. Creator Susan Bloodworth-Thomason blamed herself and the writers for not creating a more multi-dimensional character for Duffy to play. Jan Hooks was more successful as Jean Smart's replacement and was kept around for the final season.
