** The Sheikah race as a whole were notably obscure despite being around since their debut as a race in ''Ocarina of Time''. Impa (or [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Impaz]]) was the only Sheikah that appeared in many games, and was often stated to be the [[LastOfHisKind last of her kind]]. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', not only does the lore of the Sheikah expand greatly, but the rest of the Sheikah tribe finally appear for the first time ever, with Impa herself being portrayed as having a sister and a granddaughter. They even got an EvilCounterpart in the form of the Yiga Clan.

Added DiffLines:

** The Arslan crossover game also features some playable characters that players may not have even remembered from the TV anime, due to how minor of a role they served.
** The Berserk crossover game features Wyald as a playable character, who only appeared as a minor antagonist in one arc.

* Back in the first ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'', there's one certain generic officer named UsefulNotes/HondaTadakatsu who stood up in defense of UsefulNotes/TokugawaIeyasu during the battle of Mikatagahara, and Takeda Shingen refers him as one of Ieyasu's luxuries. Then Xtreme Legends get announced to have brand new 4 characters, two of them are UsefulNotes/ToyotomiHideyoshi and Imagawa Yoshimoto who already got unique character model despite being NPC in the vanilla version, one of them is a brand new archer babe called Inahime, whose father is... Honda Tadakatsu, who is the last playable character and ascended so great he practically became SW's answer to [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Lu Bu]].

* This happens quite often in the VideoGame/DynastyWarriors franchise, given the historical nature of the setting and the numerous amount of installments that build on the previous one. All characters in the series are largely based on history, so even the generic NPCs are based on real people. Oftentimes, the more prominent NPCs in one installment could very well end up becoming a fully-fledged playable character in a future installment, as proven time and time again. They usually get a design overhaul too.

** In VideoGames/HyruleWarriors, many of the minor characters that have appeared throughout the Zelda franchise make their appearance in this game's roster as playable Warriors. In fact, this was one of the major selling points of the game, in which Zelda fans can finally kick some ass as someone who isn't Link.
** VideoGame/OnePiece:PirateWarriors3 has 3 installments, each of which builds upon the roster of the one before it. Many of the new additions in each installment were characters that have already appeared in previous games as NPCs, before becoming fully playable.

On the SNK side, the game also brought back Ryuhaku Todoh, a character who had only ever been playable in the first ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' before being supplanted by Kasumi, his ''much'' more popular daughter.

* 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.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'', Daud is the assassin who murdered the Empress Jesamine Kaldwin. He appears at the beginning of the game to do the killing, and again near the end to confront Corvo after [[spoiler:the Loyalists betray him and dump him in the river near Daud's hideout]]. The game's two story DLCs - "The Knife of Dunwall" and "The Brigmore Witches" focus entirely on him (Corvo doesn't appear not in a dream until the very last seconds of "The Brigmore Witches") and what he was doing while Corvo was exacting his revenge. Also doubles as HeroOfAnotherStory.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' did this with Ed the Undying, combining the trope with BreakoutVillain. He was originally a semi-important boss several steps removed from the BigBad, with his only gimmick being that you have to "kill" him several times (he's a very persistent {{mummy}}). But he was popular enough to get his own [[NewGamePlus "Challenge Path"]] where you play through the whole game from his perspective, defeating your normal human character at the end instead of the usual final boss.

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