* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'': Intern Chad was an NVCR [[RedShirt Intern]] that everyone assumed died after being sent to investigate a store that was allegedly a front for the world government in a ''very'' early episode. In the ''September Monologues'', the Faceless Old Woman's segment revolved around him [[spoiler:summoning some kind of EldtritchAbomination that frightens [[EveryoneHasStandards the Faceless Old Woman]] out of his home]] (though it wasn't made clear at the time that it was indeed the same Chad). And it later turns out that [[spoiler:he is the BigBad of Year Four, being behind the Strangers and somehow wrapping Maureen into his plans]].

*Tim from the youtube horror series WebOriginal/MarbleHornets is a huge example. He begins the series as merely one of many extra characters who are actors for the "Marble Hornets" independant film being made within the series' own universe. Others include Brian, Sarah, and Seth, and none of these are given much development. Tim only speaks a few random lines in the first few entries, such as Entry #12, and does not stand out, excepting the protagonist Jay's interviewing him of what he knows. However, he becomes even more important in the second series of entries when we find out that [[spoiler: He is The Masked Man who has been stalking Jay (presumably under possession by The Operator/The Slenderman).]] He continues to become a more prominent character in the series, eventually becoming somewhat of a sidekick to protagonist Jay. By the end of the series, following [[spoiler: Jay's death at the hands of The Hooded Man, Tim takes over his role as the series' protagonist]]

* [[SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Robotnik]] (in his ''AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' incarnation) has gone on to become one of the most popular WebAnimation/YouTubePoop characters, spawning hundreds of videos. This also happens with other characters from other sources, though LargeHam villains seem to get this the most.

** After going through a ChuckCunninghamSyndrome period following his debut, Jeffy reappeared in "Bowser Junior's Game Night 3", and has started to ascend to recurring character position, very much like the Brooklyn Guy did.

* In ''DarwinsSoldiers'', Dr. Zanasiu's assistant originally didn't even have a name, and was planned to get killed off rather quickly. He didn't, however, and after earning a name (Zachary) he soon became one of the most important characters in the series.
