** The priest in ''ManOfLaMancha'' gets one of the best songs, "To Each His Dulcinea", and then fades back into the crowd of inmates/actors. He's also usually played by a very crazy, mute inmate.

* The goose from "WarHorse". Although mostly PlayedForLaughs, it's still one of the brilliant puppets used in the show and gets its own round of applause at the curtain call.

** Still on Andrew Lloyd Webber territory: the evicted mistress of Juan Peron in Evita, which does nothing but being insulted by Eva, sing "Another suitcase in another hall" (which was designed from the start to be a show-stopping ballad) and leave. The level of dissonance between the importance of the character and the success of the song is such, that for the movie version the poor girl has to make do with singing two lines from the chorus and the song is retconned into being sung in full earlier by Madonna in the title role.

* Rusty Charlie in ''GuysAndDolls''. He seems to be stuffed into the opening song with Benny and Nicely only then to disappear and not have any lines or songs the rest of the show.

*** The Phantom himself to an extent. Despite being the most complex and interesting character in the musical by a ''huge'' margin--not to mention being the ''titular'' character, he's only onstage for about forty minutes of its two-and-a-half hour running time. Of course, his seemingly supernatural abilities and established ScoobyDooHoax help him retain an invisible yet palpable presence throughout the entire production.

** An argument could be made that the Proprietor in ''Assassins'' fits this trope.

** An argument could be made that the Proprietor in ''Assassins'' fits this trope. It really depends on the production; sometimes he shows up only in the opening number, sometimes he makes appearances throughout the show.

** ''Franchise/EvilDead: TheMusical'' features the character of Ed, who is constantly interrupted, and only gets in one or two words at a time until the number "Bit Part Demon" outside of this, however, Ed is indeed, a glorified extra.

* With the exception of the oldest (Jacob) and youngest (Robert), the Anderson brothers in the musical ''Theatre/Shenandoah'' aren't really what you'd consider "big parts", though they do spend a lot of time on stage in the background. Except that they do get to perform the show-stealing song "Next to Lovin' (I Like Fightin')".

****Since the Donmar Warehouse Production, which brought a few substantial changes such as cutting/adding characters, scenes and songs; Fiddlin' John is no longer in the show. However, there is room for the Young Soldier to double with Frankie (a supporting role) as was done in the Donmar Production.
