Should we add the player from the Submachine series? He/she/it is never shown on screen and fans have in fact been posting theories about who exactly the player is.

Should we add the Renamed Tropes index at the bottom of this trope? Ive been trying to but I have no clue where the button to do that is (I already tried the edit button but the edit page cuts off before the index).

IIRC you need to add the name of this page on the index page for the index to show on the main page

We should totally have an "Afghan Cap" redirect to here, because that is how I imagine it would be said if someone said it out loud.

What is is called when this trope is applied to an in-game character? For example, other in-game characters keep talking about "The King", but the King himself is never seen.

Sorry it took me 4 years to reply to this, I only just saw it :D

That type of character is called The Ghost. They're are discussed but never seen. If they are really important to the plot it's called Present Absence.
