* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series features quite a bit of CharacterDevelopment, especially in the [[UsefulNotes/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.

** Furio from ''PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' is just a standard [[TheDragon Dragon]] to the BigBad Scorpius. Especially compared to his replacements, Treacheron and Villamax, who are both {{NobleDemon}}s. And Deviot, who is a DragonWithAnAgenda.

* Skeletor, from pretty much any incarnation of ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' and related series. Despite his undeniable iconic status, he's one of the most one-dimensional characters in the entire franchise. Why is he evil? Because he wants to conquer Eternia. [[GenericDoomsdayVillain Why does he want to conquer Eternia? Because he's ''evil'']]. And not one of the fascinating kinds of evil. (According to PaulDini, writers on the {{Creator/Filmation}} series were actually told by Mattel to ''not'' do anything interesting with Skeletor. He was to be the boss of the bad guys. Period.)

Added DiffLines:

* Lynn Loud from ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' is considered the least developed of the Loud sister. Whereas the other Loud sisters have became more rounded as the series progressed, Lynn has always been a JerkJock from the very first episode and has never shown any interests outside of being a Tomboyish sports fan.

* {{Wolverine}} from the ComicBook/XMen is a great character when he has little character development.
* The cast of ''{{Peanuts}}'' haven't changed much throughout their extremely long run. Frankly, it would be fairly disturbing if they did.

* ''{{Superman}}''. Then again, part of his appeal is the fact that he very rarely gets into any dark and edgy personality traits. While he's oft-derided as a "boy scout", the fact that he still holds a moral code stronger than almost anyone else after all the crap he and the entire DCU have gone through, including [[DeathIsCheap dying and coming back to life in various ways]], keeps him as ''the'' shining beacon for Metropolis and in fact most of the world. Attempts to alter him (besides [[GodzillaThreshold serious threats]] that let him [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech let his full strength out]] once in a while) are usually downcried far more strongly than any complaints about his "old fashioned" truth, justice and the American way outlook.

** Although Dr. Hank [=McCoy=] is ostensibly one of the main characters of the the First Class trilogy, his personality and outlook don't change all that much over a time span of 21 years.

** Tuco Ramirez, the central character of ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'', doesn't change either. We simply learn more about him and why he became the way he was.

* Franchise/IndianaJones, to a certain extent. In terms of character arcs, he only goes through extremely minor changes in personality. Sure, he may go from non-believer to believer in each of his adventures, but it doesn't really cause him to do things any differently. The most jarring example is how he gains a respect for the power of the Shankara Stones in ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom The Temple of Doom]]'' but goes straight back to being an atheist in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''. ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade The Last Crusade]]'' and ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull]]'' can be considered exceptions.

* Aisha Campbell is this during her stint in ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. She is also considered the least-developed Ranger in the entire franchise!
* Furio from ''PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' is just a standard [[TheDragon Dragon]] to the BigBad Scorpius. Especially compared to his replacements, Treacheron and Villamax, who are both {{NobleDemon}}s. And Deviot, who is a DragonWithAnAgenda.

** One of the biggest criticisims towards Troy from ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' is that he's this. Not helping is that due to ''Megaforce'' adapting two [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger separate]] [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Sentai]][[note]]his two sentai counterparts are [[{{Foil}} complete opposites]]; Alata/Gosei Red is a rather timid and sensitive; Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red, on the other hand, is an AntiHero who's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold[[/note]], Troy's character doesn't change when he's unmorphed[[note]]barring an inexplicable [[TookALevelInJerkass stint of jerkassery]] in one episode[[/note]], his body language while morphed is vastly different in the second season when compared to the first.

* A recurring theme of ''Webcomic/OrderOfTheStick'' is that certain beings end up becoming this, particularly [[OurLichesAreDifferent undead]] or [[WhoWantsToLiveForever beings with unnaturally extended lives.]] Their inability to age or reconsider their lives lead to them becoming unable to grow as people, leading to many [[IgnoredEpiphany moments of them refusing to see why they need to change]]. If anything, they end up backsliding. Xykon lived a full life as a human and seemed to have chilled out long enough to devise a personal philosophy by his twilight years, but when he became a lich, he lost that and his sole motivation became [[ForTheEvulz to murder people for fun]], and stayed that way for the following decades.
