* In ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'', a bored-looking woman named Mona kills time in one of the inn's rooms in town and offers Shovel Knight a money-making minigame where he knocks flasks into targets. Come the DLC "Plague of Shadows", she's been upgraded to an experienced alchemist, the front for Plague Knight's activities in town, and most of all the motivation for his entire quest.

* ''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.

* 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 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 Sheredyn faction of ''Videogame/EndlessSpace'', the personal bodyguard fleet of the United Empire's emporer, was originally a collector's edition exclusive race, that was a [[CosmeticallyDifferentSides carbon copy of the United Empire with a slightly different aesthetic]]. Come the release of the ''Disharmony'' ExpansionPack, the Sheredyn are included into the base game as a major faction, and while they still share United Empire traits, they now have a unique ability and traits based on honor.

The exceptions are "Jack" (while a Handsome Jack impersonator was in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', it's unlikely to have been the same character) and Aurelia (whose estranged brother Sir Alistair Hammerlock was a quest-giving NPC instead).

** Waluigi is a mild example. Originally showing up in Mario Tennis as a fill in for Wario's partner and Luigi's rival, Waluigi's shown up in virtually every spinoff since then, and is the only regular character that hasn't ever been in a platformer to do so. He's either [[EnsembleDarkHorse loved]] for being [[CloudCuckoolander insane]] or [[TheScrappy loathed]] as a auxiliary character.

** Leif, the prince of the fallen Leonster, was just another second-generation child unit in ''Videogame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar,'' albeit one with a familial relation to the main protagonist Seliph. The next game, ''Videogame/FireEmblemThracia776'', would see Leif becoming the protagonist, and a HeroOfAnotherStory as he fights to wrest control of Leonster from Travant, king of Thracia.

More than thirty levels and a hundred hours of gameplay later, O'Dimm reappears as the primary antagonist of the Hearts of Stone DLC expansion.

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]] {{B|adass}}u.
