* When ''Anime/{{Slayers}}'' was novelized, [[RedHeadedHeroine Lina]] and [[IdiotHero Gourry]] were actually the only real protagonists; their companions in the first arc of novels, [[JerkassWoobie Zelgadis]] and [[GenkiGirl Amelia]], were only their allies for that period of time (and even then, Amelia did not appear during the battle with [[BetaBaddie Copy Rezo]] as she did in the anime). They were replaced with [[TheRival Luke]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Milina]] in the second arc of novels. When the anime was becoming popular, however, Zel and Amelia became popular enough to appear in more places than they did, and upon expansion, the "Slayers" became a four-man party instead; just about all of the video games and manga that came followed suit with this. By contrast, Luke and Milina only appeared outside the novels in the ''Hourglass of Falces'' manga, and even there, the group is a [[FiveManBand Six-Man Band]] instead.

* General Gunther Reindardt of ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'': Originally, the animation for the final series made many fans assume that the returning Expeditionary fleet was destroyed by the Invids' transcendence to a higher plane. The Jack [=McKinney=] novels assumed this. It was probably true in the original Japanese version of Mospeada. At that time, the General didn't yet have a name and his connection to Admiral Hunter was JustFollowingOrders. He was named in the novels and was established as one of Rick Hunter's close friends. After 20 years of debating what was seen in the animation, the 2007 movie WesternAnimation/RobotechTheShadowChronicles not only made Reinhardt one of the lead characters, but showed that the Invids' transcendence destroyed only the Neutron-S missiles, and not any manned Expeditionary ships, ensuring that Reinhardt and his crew survive to be in sequels.

** Ryuji Otogi (Duke Devlin in the English version). In the manga, his father sent him to defeat Yugi because [[spoiler:his loss to Yugi's grandfather Sugoroku when they played the Devil's Board Game, which aged him 50 years overnight]]. But, Otogi isn't that cold-hearted and won't let his dad make him hate Yugi. As for the anime, he was first shown wanting revenge on Yugi for defeating Pegasus at Duelist Kingdom. After being beaten at his own game, Dungeon Dice Monsters, he softens up completely and appears throughout the rest of the anime as a supporting character.
** Remember Tetsu Ushio, that bully who was Dark Yugi's first victim? He's back as a policeman in a supporting role in ''[[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds 5Ds]]'', and even gets to [[HeelFaceTurn act heroic.]]

** Insector Haga and Dinosaur Ryuzaki (Weevil Underwood and Rex Raptor in the English version) were minor duelists in the original manga; Haga lost to Yugi and Jonouchi respectively during the two tournament arcs while Ryuzaki lost to Jonouchi in the first and was defeated off-panel in the second. The anime meanwhile upgraded their status to ThoseTwoBadGuys and made them recurring rivals to Yugi and Joey respectively long after the point they'd been written out of the manga, appearing all the way up to the anime's final episode as part of its WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue during the credits.

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhCapsuleMonsters'', while they're always present in the main series, Tea and Tristan actually get to contribute to events. Solomon Muto is a straight example.

* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'''s Renge Houshakuji was introduced early on with her own chapter, and then she faded to the background. She does still make occasional cameo appearances, though. Bisco Hatori had mentioned Renge was intended to be a recurring character, but for whatever reason it never happened. Her role in the anime is expanded quite a bit as an AsYouKnow, GenreSavvy FanGirl, and she does a few of the tasks Tamaki had initially done in the manga (such as helping Nekozawa with his photophobia). Hatori was happy to see Renge given more screentime in the anime, even if her appearances became less frequent toward the finale.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'''s Nina Einstein is arguably a rather uncommon case on how this isn't always a good thing. At first she seemed to be nothing more than a quiet, shy little {{Meganekko}} whom is just one of Milly's friends. However, due to her knowledge in science (among other things), her role gradually gets considerably larger. But the bad news is that this is when her reputation of being "an evil insane racist" was starting to grow as well. (Granted, the show tries to redeem her later on in R2, [[BrokenBase but lets just say not everyone was willing to forgive her.]]) Though in a way people probably would've liked her more right from the start if she was just one of Milly's little friends and pretty much stayed that way (in fact, the manga adaptation actually does just this.)

** Boa Hancock. She's the second character after Luffy from ''OnePiece'' who is included to the ''VideoGame/JStarsVictoryVS'' character roster. What makes it really impressive is the fact that not even the other ''Straw Hats''- yes, not even ''Zoro''- are in the game. And not only that, Hancock is the second ''fighting'' [[Manga/MedakaBox female]] character despite not even a main character like [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Rukia]] or [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Kagura]] or [[Manga/ToLoveRu Lala]] who are just supporting characters in the game.

* Kazuhiko Amagasaki from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' only showed up in a brief scene of episode 1, but managed to gain enough popularity to get a bigger role in ''TenchiInTokyo''.
