* Suzy Mizuno from ZatchBell is a prime example, seeing as how she remains a [[CloudCuckoolander ditz]] throughout the whole series, while receiving no character development or any involvement in the Mamodo battles.

* This was {{enforced|Trope}} towards the end of the original run of ''ComicBook/MarvelStarWars''. Post-''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', the characters were not allowed to move forward, as Creator/GeorgeLucas had no idea on where to take the franchise at the time. This resulted in [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2015/12/29/i-love-ya-but-youre-strange-boba-fetts-sad-day-out-of-the-sarlacc-pit/ this odd story]] where EnsembleDarkhorse Boba Fett was discovered to be spat out of the Sarlacc, only to ultimately end up back in it.

* The overwhelming majority of over-the-top comedic characters, from WesternAnimation/BugsBunny to WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, to [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Yakko/Wakko/Dot]] to WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo to WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents to WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb. Most likely, because of the RuleOfFunny. [[note]]With some, the only variations you'll find are DependingOnTheWriter; Bugs Bunny, for instance, could be an impish pixie as he was in Creator/BobMcKimson's cartoons; a manic trickster, as he was in Creator/TexAvery and Creator/BobClampett's; or a sly, cunning sophisticate like we see in Chuck Jones' latter works. It all depends.[[/note]]

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' is a show that thrives on the [[ResetButton status quo, with all sorts of drastic events eventually reverting to normal]], so most characters fall under this. However, there are a few exceptions, such as Phineas going through a bit of CharacterizationMarchesOn from his first appearance, and Vanessa, who becomes less cynical and more caring about dad.

* Franziska Von Karma from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice for All'' is pretty much the same through the series as of ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations'', the most development she gets are the revelations of some HiddenDepths regarding her rivalry with Edgeworth.

* In ''Videogame/FinalFantasyX'', Auron is the only guardian who does not undergo significant CharacterDevelopment. He already went through it long before the game started. His story is already over.

* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series features quite a bit of CharacterDevelopment, especially in the [[SegaDreamcast Dreamcast]] [[SixthGeneration era]], but the title character himself isn't the subject of any of it. This is because the development of other characters usually plays off of him, such as Tails learning to be less dependent on Sonic, or Blaze learning about friendship from him.

* [[EnforcedTrope Enforced]] with Caliborn in ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}''. Because of how [[BizarreAlienBiology his species works]], the act of [[spoiler:taking a shortcut to predominating over his sister by murdering her dreamself]] freezes his mentality. He is literally incapable of developing new personality traits or ditching old ones, and he will [[PsychopathicManchild never mentally mature to adulthood.]]

* Durkon from ''WebComic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has largely stayed the same as when we first saw him, although a flashback from a prequel book showed he was surly and irritable when he met Roy, due to the way he had been treated in human lands. His static nature begins to be explored in the ''Blood Runs In The Family'' arc: he befriends and opens up to a fellow cleric, but turns against said cleric with the revelation [[spoiler: that he's a vampire. Later, his new "friend" slays him and [[FaceMonsterTurn raises him as a vampire]]. The vampiric spirit animating him tries to fit in by doing its best impression of the dwarf Durkon has always been (except Evil), but the BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind with its host]] provides an examination of Durkon's backstory, including some deep-buried psychological issues his stoical demeanour had always obscured.
