* One ''College Humor'' video is about "five monsters who will be your roommate." (They're not literal monsters, but people who act rather oddly like movie monsters; the neat freak is compared to The Terminator, the slob who steals your homework is a zombie). One of these is "The Ghost," the roommate you ''never'' see, but who ''has'' to be there because there's evidence of someone else living in the apartment. "He may be trying to communicate with you, but you'll never know for sure."

* ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'': The Warden.

to:

* ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'': Unusually for a show set inside a prison, the Warden is never seen, and we aren't told anything about him, not even his name. He's frequently mentioned (by his title only) by prison staff, though, who all seem terrified of him, and do their best to make sure he never learns about any big problems.
** In season three, the Warden [[spoiler: is abruptly fired after the prison is sold to a private company. Joe Caputo, who has been a frequently recurring character since the first episode, becomes the new Warden, essentially undoing this trope.
The Warden. old Warden is never mentioned again, and we never do see him or find out a single thing about him.]]

* God in ''JesusChristSuperstar'', although he is addressed - indeed, harangued - by Jesus in the scene at Gethsemane.

* This is the main joke of Tom Jacobsen's ''Bunbury: [[TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest A Serious Play for Trivial People]]''. It features-- you guessed it!-- Wilde's Bunbury and Shakespeare's Rosaline teaming up and roaming through the Western canon meeting or becoming other Ghosts or imagined characters and changing ends as they go. Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet gets a happy ending; we meet [[AStreetcarNamedDesire Blanche DuBois's]] dead husband, [[WhosAfraidOfVirginiaWoolf Martha's]] blond-eyed blue-haired son, and a whole slew of unseen characters from ''Theatre/ThreeSisters''; and Bunbury himself becomes or is mistaken for [[Theatre/WaitingForGodot Godot]].

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' has Queen Chrysalis. The pony characters speak of her with dread frequently, and it's a plot point that Mothra Lea's Equestrian form slightly resembles her, forcing her to hide her appearance to prevent a panic. At one point, Destroyah nearly kills a Changeling and it escapes and decides to report to Chrysalis what happened. It takes until Chapter 31 for her to appear in person.

* Iggie from Creator/JudyBlume's ''Literature/IggiesHouse'' is never seen in the story, as she moved away from the neighborhood sometime before the Garbers moved in. The story's protagonist, Winnie Bates, [[RunningGag constantly tries to write her a letter, but ends up having to start over whenever some new development happens in the story]]. By the time the story ends, Winnie has finished writing her final version of the letter.

* In the current version of ''Ride/TheIncredibleHulkCoaster'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]], Thunderbolt Ross makes no actual appearance in the ride, only being alluded to. This is an especially bizarre instance of this trope, as Ross is the character that the storyline centers around.

* ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'' has a few Ghosts, the most prominent one being Morris Frye, Cameron's father. All we know of him is related or implied by Cameron or Ferris, and none of it is pretty. Some film scholars have argued that he, not [[DesignatedVillain Rooney]] or [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Ferris]], is the [[BiggerBad true villain]] of the film despite never physically appearing.

* Website/CollegeHumor: In the video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DN7C_tE8H_A "The Six Monsters You'll Have As Roommates"]], "The Ghost" is both a figurative and literal example. He's a roommate who you never see because he's always out or going around unnoticed, to the point that you start to doubt that he even exists.
