**Gus Fring was introduced late in season 2, as another distributor, then becomes a member of the main cast for seasons 3 and 4. Gus had originally been intended to just be a recurring character, but Creator/GiancarloEsposito believed Gus's mysteriousness compelling enough that he rejected offers for guest appearances and insisted on becoming a series regular.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ros, a CanonForeigner, was originally intended only for Tyrion's introductory scene, but the producers liked the actress and expanded her character into additional scenes, eventually turning her into a fairly major supporting character.

** House Tyrell were pretty much cyphers in the books, but show!Loras and Margaery are far more proactive and important in the show storyline.
** In the books, Robb is the only member of his family (sans four-year-old Rickon) to not be a [=POV=] character, and his storyline is told primarily through the viewpoint of other characters, primarily his mother Catelyn. In the show, Catelyn is DemotedToExtra while Robb gets far more screentime and lines than her.
** Trystane Martell in ''A Feast for Crows'' got about two seconds of pagetime and little to no characterization besides being a NiceGuy, but in the show his older siblings Arianne and Quentyn (both POV characters in the books) have been AdaptedOut, and Trystane is the only trueborn Martell, resulting in increased appearances.

* ''{{Arrow}}'': Felicity Smoak may well be the crowning example. She started as a one-scene character, never intended to return, but her portrayal by Emily Bett Rickards was well-received by both the creators and the audience and she was promoted to a recurring role in early-mid season 1. By season 2, she was a main character, and coming into season 3 was essentially the ''female lead'' of the show.

* Most of the characters in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', by necessity. Because almost any character with any real prominence in the comics has been earmarked for use in the [[MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] films or {{Netflix}} shows, AOS largely has to deal with obscure barrel-scrapers who never got much page time in the comics. For instance, despite only ever appearing in just over a dozen or so comic issues before the show, Lance Hunter is one of the main characters.

* [[TheCoroner Max Bergman]] was originally just a one-episode test character on ''Series/HawaiiFive0''. He proved likeable enough that he now shows up about OnceAnEpisode, usually to autopsy a body but also to celebrate with the gang after a case. [[HeyItsThatGuy Being played by]] Creator/MasiOka of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' fame probably helped.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the character of Wilfred Mott was initially a brief 2-minute cameo for Creator/BernardCribbins in the 2007 Christmas special. However, due to the death of the actor playing Donna's father, the character later returned as her grandfather in the 2008 series. His role continued to be increased to the extent that he was promoted to main companion status for the 2009 Christmas and New Year's specials, [[spoiler:and caused the Doctor's regeneration]]. Not bad for what was intended as a ''HeyItsThatGuy'' moment.
