* In ''Literature/{{NPCs}}'', four {{Non Player Character}} from a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' {{Expy}} tabletop game suddenly find themselves at the center of an incredible adventure, when four [[PlayerCharacter adventurers]] get themselves killed in a stupid manner in a local tavern (the players didn't bother reading the rules or listen to the GM). The [=NPCs=] (a town guard, the daughter of the town mayor, a gnome with a shady past, and a half-orc bartender) find a scroll that appears to be the summons from the kingdom's [[TheCaligula mad ruler]], who is known to raze entire towns to the ground for any real or perceived slight. They're faced with a choice: if they do nothing, the king is likely to wonder why the adventurers never showed up at his castle and send out a search party, which would, eventually result in the death of everyone they know and love; alternatively, they can hide the bodies and assume the identities of the four adventurers and hope to die far away from their home town to spare their loved ones.

In a strange twist of fate, [[spoiler:this ends up helping them, when all "real" adventurers find themselves constantly rolling {{Critical Failure}}s in the dungeon thanks to a RealityWarper artifact that affects not only the "game" world but also RealLife. Additionally, the group also meets three other would-be adventurers who may have found themselves in the same predicament]].

* The cricket from ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'': in [[Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio the original story]], he was a nameless cricket who was squashed by the title character early on and appeared later as a ghost. In the [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney version]], he was given the name Jiminy Cricket and promoted to {{narrator}}. Not only did he practically steal the movie away from its title character, but he's gone on to host/narrate other Disney films, short subjects, and even theme park shows. He's also a notable character in several of the ''KingdomHearts'' games.

* ''MeetTheRobinsons'' is also adapted from a children's picture book, but oddly, only really does this for Mr. and Mrs. Robinson and Louis. In the book, the former two were rather flat characters with little relevance to the strange goings-on the book focused on... and Louis was an extreme example of the FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator, being a first-person narrator lacking even a ''name''. Most of the other characters are only minorly expanded, or new to this version.
