* 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.

* On ''BoyMeetsWorld'', Angela first appears in season 5 episode 2 as a student in Feeney's class who has one line of dialogue, and then in season 5 episode 7 she has a much larger role as Shawn's girlfriend and from there she becomes a recurring character and then a main character.

** We'll start with Brittany, though technically she ascended in the first season. Heather Morris was a back-up dancer for Beyonce's "Single Ladies" live performances and was initially hired to teach the choreography to the cast. They gave her the role, intended to be just a recurring background dancer, without even an acting audition. It turned out that she had great comic timing, and after a gradual increase in lines over season one, she was promoted to the regular cast by season two, and is also a major player in one of its subplots.
** Similar to Britanny, Santana was little more than a background character in the first few episodes only getting a few lines here and there but eventually started getting more and more focus, probably due both to actress Naya Rivera's ability to sell the part of bitch real well and her chemistry with Heather Morris making them a great comedic duo.

Added DiffLines:

* In the miniseries adaption of ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'', the character Bill Turcotte has a much larger role than he had in the book. In the book, he only appears during the part set in Derry. In the series, he becomes Jake’s ally in his quest to save Kennedy, and moves with him to Jody, posing as Jake’s little brother.

** Season two had Zedd summon some past monsters to protect the Rock of Time... ''immediately'' followed by past monsters being involved in the wedding of Rita and Zedd. Some of them were the same ones. This meant we had one-shot monsters from ages past returning for ''four episodes in a row.'' Dramole in particular totals ''six'' appearances in which he actually does something (not crowd filler like in Countdown.) Undoubtedly a record for ''most'' {{Toku}} (the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' has some iconic recurring monsters too.)

''Franchise/UltraSeries'' has some many iconic recurring monsters. But without a doubt, the biggest one of these {{Breakout Villain}}s is Gomora, the first monster in the franchise to defeat ''Series/{{Ultraman}}''. He's appeared in every major entry since 2005 and has also been '''a hero''' of a few of them since 2007(unlike the many other monsters too.)who've reappeared frequently), fighting many villains and numerous other monsters alongside the Ultramen and defense teams as well as marking the franchise's first HeelFaceTurn from a MonsterOfTheWeek.

** Uncle Deadly was a memorable character who only appeared every once in awhile on ''Series/TheMuppetShow''. After two decades of not being used anywhere, and having only made background appearances in the movies (in large crowd scenes), he was given a featured role in [[Film/TheMuppets the 2011 film]] as one of the villains henchmen, and now it looks like he'll have a major role on [[Series/TheMuppets the 2015 series]], being in charge of wardrobe.
