** Petey Piranha started as a regular, average boss in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine''. Then he started showing up in a lot of the sports games. He then not only made [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros another main series appearance]], but then showed up in [[VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach a spinoff]], [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime an RPG]], the third installment of [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros a fighting game series]] in person, and then [[VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar another RPG]]. And he's had a few [[{{Expy}} Expies]], too.

** Despite [[AmericansHateTingle immense unpopularity in America]], Tingle saw his role increase consistently from his original debut in ''Majora's Mask'' to the point he's already the star of two games with a third one on the way. [[NoExportForYou But unless you live in Europe or Japan, don't count on ever playing them without importing.]]
** The Skull Kid in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' gives you a heart piece and is part of a very minor sidequest. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', he jumpstarts the plot and is set up ([[EvilMask somewhat incorrectly]]) as the BigBad. He also becomes an integral part of the Sacred Woods subquest in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** A more notable example would be the Happy Mask Salesman, who, like the Skull Kid, was only part of a minor subquest in ''Ocarina of Time''. He became an unlikely major -- and very popular -- character in ''Majora's Mask''.

* [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Charizard, Squirtle]], [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Meta Knight, King Dedede]], and [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]] in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series first appeared as trophies in ''Melee'', then all became playable in ''Brawl''.
** [[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac]] appeared as an Assist Trophy in Brawl. Come the fouth installment in the series, and he's upgraded to full-fledged playable Smasher status.

* The ''Legends'' port of ''Hyrule Warriors'' has King Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule. Formerly the ruler of the sunken land of Hyrule in the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Era of the Great Sea]], now he utilizes his alternate form, the King of Red Lions, and said form's [[TelephonePolearm mast and sail]] in battle.

*** On the same vein, Mars People made the cut over [[VideoGame/MetalSlug Marco Rossi]] as a Mid-Boss for ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos''.

* ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'': Quite a few of the playable fighters had very minor roles in the games they debuted in. But by far, Agitha is a prime example: going from [[RichIdiotWithNoDayJob paying Link for gold-plated insects in Castle Town]] to [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass utilizing her parasol and a gigantic beetle and butterfly in tandem to decimate the enemy.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has Mayor R.J. [=MacCready=], a foul-mouthed BrattyHalfPint who must be persuaded to let you into Little Lamplight so you can progress through the game's main story line. ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', which takes place a decade later, finds the now adult [=MacCready=] as a mercenary sniper in the Commonwealth with GoshDangItToHeck tendencies. He is one of the companions available in game and will accompany you around for a small fee. If he likes you enough, [=MacCready=] also offers a quest to follow, in which you find out more about his past, including that he's [[spoiler: a widower with an ailing son he was forced to leave back in the Capital Wasteland.]]

* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKingsII'', similar to the ''VideoGame/TotalWar'' example above, there's a small chance that one of the nameless soldiers will distinguish himself in combat, which turns him into a proper, named character who joins the player's court and is then treated like any other named character (can hold titles, can participate in factions and be their target, can command armies, and so on).

** While how much a [[OlympusMons legendary Pokémon]] could be considered an "extra" may be up to debate, [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Rayquaza]], [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Giratina]], and [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Kyurem]] went from relatively minor to much more important in the [[UpdatedRerelease third version]] / [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 sequel]] of their respective generations.

** ''VideoGame/MortalKombatSpecialForces'' is generally regarded to be the bottom of the barrel of the series, but fans latched on to one of the bosses in it: [[DishingOutDirt Tremor]]. Fans had demanded since his appearance to come back. In the PS Vita version of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' he appears as a bonus boss. After 15 years of fan demand, Tremor finally makes his debut as a playable character in DownloadableContent for ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''.
