* Jason Porter from DomainTnemrot. In volume one he's just the guy who riles up the crowd during the titular stadium's matches and wasn't even important enough to get a name beyond 'Ref' but then in volume two was upgraded to be a major antagonist. His tag is still 'ref' though.

* Kathryn in ''Schlock Mercenary''. In book 11, she started out as just the infiltrator-in-chief for a group of free-runners whose greatest misdeed was hacking a few cameras and backstabbing Nick by faking interest in him, then got dragged on an op because Schlock commandeered her bus at gunpoint. Book 12 had her start out as the Toughs' driver, then take on a major role when she stumbled on the main bad guy. She hangs out in the B-plot during Book 13, helping General Tagon work through his issues with his son. In book 14 she's basically dragooned as an intel specialist because the UNS suddenly had a pressing interest in everyone with connections to the Toughs, and by book 15 she's for all intents and purposes a full employee. Murtagh has a similar arc, starting as an antagonist (albeit a relatively nice one) in book 12, getting fired by her employers at the end, signing on with the Toughs in book 14, and moving from NCO to an officer spot by book 15; for 15 and the opening of 16 we see a lot more of her than we do of Tagon.

* Ganondorf from ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' had no important roles with the exeption of one single strip where he appeared as AffablyEvil JokeCharacter. Surprising for one of the most popular villains in Nintendo history, right? Well, Cocoon Academy revealed that [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn back when he was a nice guy]]]] he was the teacher of [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Dedede]] and [[SuperMarioBros Bowser]]...

* In the sprite comic ''AnsemRetort'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Red XIII]] was initially a member of the replacement cast while the main cast went missing. Thanks to some manipulation by Darth Maul, he became evil enough to fit in with the main cast. His ascension was complete when the rest of the cast picked him over [[DemotedToExtra Marluxia]] to come along on a trip to Hawaii.

* InUniverse in ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids:'' Anakin was originally just an NPC that the Gamemaster threw in to be Watto's assistant, but random events kept making him more important to the plot. Notably, ''Shmi'' was originally a PC (created when Annie joined the game), and Anakin only graduated to PC when Shmi pulled a HeroicSacrifice to give him freedom (with Annie transferring to him in the process).

** The Beforan trolls were basically there to deliver exposition and parody various tumblr subcultures, until Aranea decided she'd like to try her hand at taking over the comic by a) helping with Vriska's plan to find a cool thing by feeding ghosts into the meat grinder, b) stealing the Life Ring, and c) proceeding to screw everyone over in elaborate ways. [[spoiler:Then John applies {{Retconjuration}}, recovers the Life Ring before she could take it, and proceeds to revise the entire Act just to prevent her from doing that again; at present, she isn't ''even'' an extra.]]

* Kaitlyn Hu of ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'' was referred to by [[WordofGod Chrispy]] as the central character of another strip. That other strip (''Copper Road''), featuring her and the other side of the class, was eventually made.
