* 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 ''[[Creator/AntonChekhov Three Sisters]]''; and Bunbury himself becomes or is mistaken for [[Theatre/WaitingForGodot Godot]].

* The character Hope from ''FanFic/JusticeSocietyOfJapan'' is a huge fan of [[TigerAndBunny Wild Tiger]], but said character never appears on-screen (not counting a dream sequence).

* Until the [=iOS=] game, ''Batman: Arkham Underworld'', the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' version of [[TheDon Carmine Falcone]] was this, he never put in a physical appaearance until ''Underworld'' (in part in ''City'' and ''Knight'' due to Hugo Strange forcing him out of the city, according to the [[AllThereInTheManual Arkham City Stories]]). According to [[AllThereInTheManual the interview tapes]] in ''Arkham City'', he's the one who caused Harvey Dent to become Two-Face ([[CompositeCharacter taking Sal Maroni's role]]) and was the true power [[AdaptationOriginConnection behind the Red Hood Gang that'd spawn the future Joker]], as well as one of his businesses, Falcone Shipping, being seen in the Joker's turf and a SequelHook to ''Arkham Knight''. In ''Origins'', the Penguin tries to use [[ComicBook/TheLongHalloween his son, Alberto,]] to force Falcone out of the weapons business and in ''Knight'', there's another Falcone warehouse.

** Likewise, while stuff tied to other villains appear, including Maxie Zeus's cell and a business he owns, the Ratcatcher's equipment, the Joker using the Ventriloquist's Scarface dummy, Count Vertigo and Toyman's cells, and some of the body parts the Great White Shark lost, they themselves don't appear in the games.

* ''MyDinnerWithAndre'' is full of them. The cast literally conists of two guys, a waiter, and a few extras. Throughout the film, Wallace talks about his girlfriend Debbie, and Andre talks about quite a few people. The closest we ever get to seeing any of them is a single black and white photograph of a Polish woman Andre worked with one time.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', there's two significant founding fathers missing from it:
** Creator/BenjaminFranklin, which was a deliberate move on Lin-Manuel Miranda's part: he had intended to have a song for Franklin, but found that the LargeHam Franklin would have taken over the musical, so chose to cut him.
** UsefulNotes/JohnAdams. Miranda stated in an interview he figured everyone would have just pictured Adams as played by Creator/WilliamDaniels in ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' anyway, so he could get away with making Adams The Ghost.

** Lothos is one in the series; he and his minions are vaguely referenced in the first episode. (For context, Lothos was Buffy's arch-nemesis in TheMovie, and there he was indeed seen on screen.)

** In ZorkGrandInquisitor, you actually hear it. At the start of the game, if you go down the well without the Lantern, you do not get a warning of the Grue. But wait long enough, you hear a slobbering, chewing, gnawing and then belch. The death text playfully criticizes you for not expecting it. "Going into a dark area in a Zork game? What were you thinking?!"
