According to the Laconic, the Spear Carrier is a character who "shows up, says a line, then is never seen again."

However, the image fails to show the trope. It's just a few amazed faces. The caption doesn't help either. It simply doesn't help someone understand the trope any better.

May I ask for a new image? Perhaps it can be a short comic, showing a man walking in, saying a few lines, and then walking out. The caption could read "And he was never seen again in the rest of the story" or something along those lines.

Fixed the link; you have to put it in CamelCase.

Motion to pull

Textbook JAFAAC, doesn't demonstrate the trope at all.

I'm not even really sure how we'd go about pic'ing this one.

I quickly made one:
Caption: The only time the messenger appeared.

Hearing nothing else, I guess we'll let it sit until someone makes a new thread. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
