** Tirion Fordring counts, too. In ''Burning Crusade'', all he did was give you a few quests. Come ''Wrath Of The Lich King'', however, and he's in charge of pretty much anything attacks on the Scourge. In one of the first things you'll likely see him do, he decimates a massive army of Scourge monsters and redeems a whole batch of Death Knights. Later in ''Legion'', he's one of the first the lead the charge against the Burning Legion. However, this time things don't go according to plan.[[spoiler: By the time the Alliance and Horde players arrive to the Broken Shore, the Argent Crusade has been decimated and Tirion is held captive by Gul'dan, who than seemingly kills him. Later, the paladins find out that Tirion is NotQuiteDead and try to rescue him. Unfortunately, the torture the demons put him through was too much and [[DiedInYourArmsTonight Tirion dies in the player character's arms]] though not before [[TakeUpMySword passing the Ashbringer and the mantle of leadership to them.]]]]

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', players first learned of eccentric Gentleman Inspector Hildebrand Manderville's father Godbert Manderville through text in the Hildebrand missions in 1.0. He finally shows up in 2.2's Hildebrand mission but tends to stay here despite being mentioned as one of the heads of Ul'dah's ruling Syndicate, leaving that role to scheming Lalafells like Lolorito. He makes his presence known in the main story, to the surprise of many, in Patch 4.1, when Sultana Nanamo ul Namo seeks him out and he helps her with a solution on how to get the liberated Ala Mhigo back on its feet.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' plays with this in the form of [[BigBad Aldryn]]. When the character was originally given a concept in 2010, he was merely TheDragon to then ''Versus XIII'' big bad Aldercapt. Over the course of the change from ''Versus XIII'' to ''XV'', Aldryn was promoted into the big bad.



** Then there's the princess Emily herself. She goes from a LivingMacGuffin in ''Dishonored'' to one of two playable characters in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored 2}}''.

* Magisa, a recurring character in some of the games made by ''Creator/{{Cygames}}''. In ''VideoGame/RageOfBahamut'', she originally appeared on some cards as "Witchcrafter" without a name. Her status as an ascended extra started in ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' where she's a fully fleshed out character. She later appeared as a card in ''VideoGame/{{Shadowverse}}''.

* ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' has about three "skins" for all of the scientist models, all of whom exist solely to provide exposition, open certain doors and/or die horribly and thereby show the player how ''not'' to die horribly. Two of these skins were later used as the basis for two of the main characters of ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'', which has led to interesting arguments about which of the scientists is the "real" one (Eli is explicitly stated to be the first one to talk to Gordon after the Resonance Cascade; Kliener is generally considered to be the only scientist seen wielding a weapon, appearing at the end of the "Lambda Core" level). Barney, a character similarly based on model skins, this time of the security guards (of which there was only ''one'' originally) is more of a MauveShirt however.

* Tseng of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. In the original game, he is the leader of [[GoldFishPoopGang the Turks]], but you never fought him, and he only appears for a short while. Come ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', he becomes Zack's Turk partner, and could fight alongside him in a DMW sequence. And Vincent Valentine in the original game was just a optional player character. In ''Advent Children'', he's one of the main character along with Cloud and Tifa and he finally got his own spin-off game Dirge Of Cerberus.

* The AddamsFamily game for the TurboGrafx16 stars "Tully Alford," of all people, as the main character. Confused? Tully was the villainous Addams family lawyer in the 1991 movie (played by Dan Hedaya) making him an example of a VillainProtagonist, as well.

** While not as much of an extra as most, Joker was essentially just a part of the scenery for most of ''1''. In ''2'', he gets way more fleshed out as a character and is established as one of Shepard's most loyal followers.

* In the Super Famicom version of ''VideoGame/{{Ys}} IV'', Karna is only a minor character that Adol runs into a couple times. However, in the PCEngine CD version, she is a badass ActionGirl and a major plot driver.
