* ''WesternAnimation/RosePetalPlace'' had the villainess Nastina get a toy, but her lackey Horace didn't. Also, the second special introduced six new characters who were planned to be made as toys but it never materialized.

* A frequent criticism of Hasbro's Marvel Legends line (as well as the previous 6" movie figures in the same style and scale) is that movie villains tend to get ignored. Examples include Whiplash from ''Film/IronMan2'', Comicbook/RedSkull from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', Comicbook/{{Loki}} from ''Film/{{Thor}}'' (though realizing [[EnsembleDarkhorse this grave error]], Loki was subsequently included in the 6" lines for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and ''Film/ThorRagnarok''), Ronan and Nebula from ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' (though Nebula later received a 6" figure in [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 the sequel]]), Yellowjacket from ''Film/AntMan'' and Kaecilius from ''Film/DoctorStrange''. Interestingly, the Mandarin from ''Film/IronMan3'' ''was'' going to get a figure, but it was scrapped for unknown reasons.

* ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' is an extreme example of this trope, as ''no'' toys were ever produced for the show. The toys were pitched, but no stores wanted them, because they were still trying to get rid of toys from the RyanReynolds ''Film/GreenLantern'' movie, which flopped horribly. The fact that the expensive [=CGI=] animated show had no toy line to support it financially is rumored to be a major reason the show was canceled.

* It has become an ongoing point of criticism of the toy industry that female characters are often omitted from toy lines. Or, if they appear at all, it's in limited-edition release or very expensive prestige editions. A (very short) list of examples include the Creator/GalGadot version of Franchise/WonderWoman, who was omitted from most toy releases related to ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Rey from ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' (toys featuring her didn't start to turn up until well after the film was released), the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse version of Comics/BlackWidow, Alice from the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' films, etc.

* The toyline for ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' only featured a portion of the cast, meaning a lot of characters like Comicbook/{{Storm}}, Comicbook/JeanGrey and even the film's villains, William Stryker and Lady Deathstrike, were left without toys. Unsurprisingly, [[WolverinePublicity got at least EIGHT figures in the line]].
