* ''WebComic/CheckPlease'' has a downplayed case, but some believe it happens to Bittle. The first 2 years of the comic heavily focus on Jack's issues, his past and his plans for the future, leaving Bittle to have focus only during his coming out, his [[spoiler: concussion]] and his [[spoiler: crush on Jack]] during year 2. Bittle is heavily implied to be a rather complex character, and things about him never got explored, such as his relationship with his father and his conservative family, his bullying-filled childhood, his fear of checking, that seems to expand to most forms of physical contact and his romantic life.

* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' villains and AbusiveParents Zod and Ursa had their young child end up on Earth, where Superman and Lois Lane adopted him under the name Christopher Kent. The CharacterDevelopment and story potential opened up by Clark and Lois finally becoming parents was then wasted when Christopher got sucked into a YearInsideHourOutside dimension for a PlotRelevantAgeUp and wound up becoming just another minor character by the "New Krypton" arc. Especially sad as the New 52 reboot came not too long after all this, so Christopher's change to the status quo would not have been permanent in any case.

** Unfortunately, ''Superman himself'' fell into this in the ''New 52''. He was introduced as a younger and angrier figure that considered himself “Superman first, Clark Kent later”, just like the Silver Age. His characterization varied across books, as each writer was more interested in depicting their own interpretation of Superman instead of delivering a single, more cohesive narrative. By the time ''ComicBook/SupermanTruth'' hit the shelves, fans were tired of the dark and brooding Superman and preferred the more optimistic ''ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark''.

* In WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''Film/OsmosisJones'' had a parody of ''Film/InsideOut'' with other actors as his emotions. But instead of any character references, they mostly just fight about whether they ripped off the former movie or not.

** Doomed, a college freshman who accidentally gained the ability to become a Doomsday-like monster, faced some potentially intriguing struggles in his solo series. His induction into the Teen Titans after his book's swift cancellation[[labelnote:*]]A lukewarm reception resulted in ''Doomed'' getting canned after six issues, seven including the "sneak preview"[[/labelnote]] seemed to provide an opportunity for further exploration into his efforts to prove he has a greater potential for good than Doomsday did, overcome his difficulty communicating as a vocally unintelligible monster, and address the possibility that he might someday become unable to resume human form. At the least, his acceptance of his dual nature at the end of that book suggested that becoming a Titan would allow him to unleash the fullest extent of his abilities. Unfortunately, his tenure basically consisted simply of making some very gratuitous cameos, before heading back to Metropolis. This also resulted in Doomed's human identity having even less personality than he did in the solo series.

* Finnick from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' starts off as a cutesy sidekick to Nick, who is apparently a baby fox that wants to grow up to be an elephant...only for the audience to find out later on he's actually a grown up fennec fox that has a cynical, aggressive, tough as nails personality and a deep voice. However, despite the fact that he makes his personality very well known, he only gets three lines and is in the movie for less than 5 minutes, to the point where he's pretty much the only character in the movie whose nowhere to be found in the DancePartyEnding (which is also kind of weird considering he can be seen on many of the promotional materials for the movie, to the point where he has his [[AscendedExtra own toy commercial]].
