* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Marco's friends Alonzo and Ferguson were written [[EnforcedTrope because the executives wanted Marco to have friends besides Star]]. They were seen in the pilot as well as earlier episodes in the series, but by the second season they're only mentioned once (in a joke [[LampshadeHanging pointing out their absence]]), and [[IntergenerationalFriendship Marco's martial arts instructor]] basically takes over their role as "Marco's other friend(s)".

They at the very least are given a proper sendoff before [[spoiler:Marco leaves for Mewni]] in Season 3.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Early on, Apple Bloom was shown to be friends with a filly named Twist. Once the Cutie Mark Crusaders were formed, Twist was stuck as a background character, and Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle seem to be Apple Bloom's only friends. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by [[RealLifeWritesThePlot real-life events]]: the character's voice actress, Alexandra Carter, left Vancouver for Philadelphia and is now unavailable to record any further dialogue.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Marco's friends Alonzo and Ferguson were written [[ExecutiveMeddling because the executives wanted]] [[EnforcedTrope Marco to have friends besides Star]]. They were seen in the pilot as well as earlier episodes in the series, but by the second season they're only mentioned once (in a joke [[LampshadeHanging pointing out their absence]]), and [[IntergenerationalFriendship Marco's martial arts instructor]] basically takes over their role as "Marco's other friend(s)".

Contrast FriendlessBackground. Compare ForgottenFallenFriend, where the death of a friend is used to set off the plot before being forgotten, and TwentyFourHourPartyPeople, where hitherto-unseen "friends" appear to make a party seem more lively.

Contrast FriendlessBackground. Compare ForgottenFallenFriend, where the death of a friend is used to set off the plot before being forgotten, and TwentyFourHourPartyPeople, where hitherto-unseen "friends" appear to make a party seem more lively. Don't confuse with ThoseTwoGuys, as they have a higher chance of coming back despite occasionally filling the same niche.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' gives us Marco's friends Alonzo and Ferguson, seen in primarily the pilot as well as earlier episodes in the series. By Season 2, however, they're mentioned about twice; Star mentions not being able to take them along for adventures because they don't have the adaptability that Marco has, and another has them among a crowd waving. It's all but stated that Janna takes their place as TheTeamNormal.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Though they feature pretty heavily for the first part of the manga before Rukia is taken back to the Soul Society, they basically drop out of prominence after that. One character's when she is in the story is even realizing that she has basically no relevance to the story. And as the last arc takes place solely in the Soul Society, they have nothing to do with it.

* ''Series/{{IZombie}}'' : Liv starts the series with a mother and a younger brother, but one might get the impression that she's a siblingless orphan.
