*** The ducks from ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'' appeared in ''Melee'' as a trophy (Which had 2 ducks) and a sticker in ''Brawl'' (Which only had 1). They would later team up with the imfamous dog from the same game in the 4th installment. Oddly though, this was the first time the dog has ever appeared in a Smash game.

*** [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Squirtle]] was a stage platform in the Poké Floats stage in Melee (While also having a trophy) before being playable in ''Brawl'' as one of Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon. Unfortunately, like Ivysaur, it was cut from Smash 4 and only appeared in that game [[DemotedToExtra as a trophy]], while Charizard, another one of Pokémon Trainer's Mons, becomes its own fighter because [[PanderingToTheBase "lol any Pokémon that isn't Charizard sucks"]].

** Anna, the SeriesMascot, is a playable character after twenty two years of games in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. She returns in the following game, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', as DownloadableContent.
** The ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates's'' [[spoiler: Second Generation]] characters had been given the DemotedToExtra treatment in-story, but the ''Heirs of Fates'' DLC stages made them the protagonists.



** ButtMonkey Bang Shishigami was treated as a joke by a wide variety of characters, the sole exception being Hakumen. However, an offhand comment by Rachel about an inactive Nox Nyctores turned out to be more than met the ear as Bang [[TookALevelInBadass ground his ass off]] and turned into a MinorMajorCharacter as a result - as ''Chrono Phantasma'' is moving into Ikaruga, the fans are undoubtedly going to be quite pissed if he doesn't get a significant share of the spotlight this time around. He may still be an over-the-top anime ninja pastiche with a loud voice and a scruffy face, but that's why we love him.

** Additionally the ''AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' series expanded some of the badnik enemies from the original games and converted them into recurring henchmen for Dr Robotnik. Scratch (based largely on Clucker from Sonic 2), Grounder and Coconuts frequently appeared as comic relief in the show.
