* 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.

Justified is for In Universe explanations; Enforced is for when the writer has to include them.
* [[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.]]

If he's a static character except for multiple instances of character development, then...
* 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.

* [[RedLetterMedia Mr. Plinkett]] argues in his review of ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' that Indy works best as one of these, as he's meant to be [[EscapistCharacter someone the audience can project themselves onto]], and the movie made a mistake in trying to force too much character development on him.

** Also how death is punished. While dead characters continue to exist in the dream bubbles as ghosts, they cannot go through any CharacterDevelopment or change, or if they do, it becomes their whole character.

* The overwhelming majority of over-the-top comedic characters, from Characters/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]]
