* Subverted to a large degree on the TheSimpsons, where, during the course of its very long run, almost every mentioned character is eventually seen in some form, including parents of minor characters, bosses of companies, low-level employees, even ridiculous characters originally intended simply as one-off verbal jokes. The only exceptions tend to be characters who exist as stereotypes of the standard unseen television character, such as Gil's wife, who berates him over the phone in a cliched sort of way.

** Ser Stafford Lannister doesn't even appear onscreen. Not alive, anyways. He's certainly among the many Lannister casualties shown in the battle's aftermath.

Added DiffLines:

* In the one-woman show ''Music/TellMeOnASunday'', none of the people [[NoNameGiven the heroine]] interacts with (most notably her boyfriends) ever appear on stage. At the most, some productions might use photos to depict them - but this is done rarely.

** Howland Reed, in-universe as well as out. House Reed's seat, Greywater Watch, is constantly moving because it is built on a floating island, and has never been found by anyone not led by a Crannogman guide. The Crannogmen, while exceptionally loyal to the Starks, are mercurial and reclusive by nature, and all live on floating islands similar to the one Greywater Watch lies on, making them nearly impossible to find if they don't want to be found. And, because passing between the south and North requires knowledge of the floating islands or the Crannogmen's own secret routes, they have proven extremely difficult to conquer and strategically essential. And of course as he's the only one who witnessed what happened at the Tower of Joy (Lyanna Stark's death, Ned's promise to her) and still living, it's obvious that we won't see him at least till the last seasons. The third episode of Season 6 is our first cross-media glimpse of him.

** Enid, Dr. Kelso's wife, and his son Harrison. He often relates anecdotes about him to his staff or is seen talking to them on the phone, but they never once visit him at the hospital. Enid is seen at least once from behind (without her face showing) in a flashback. Harrison is also (just) seen in a photo that Kelso is holding.
