* A possibly unintentional example exists within the [[{{Xbox360}} Xbox 360]] version of ''[[VideoGame/SegaSuperstars Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]'', seeing as how [[GuestFighter Guest Racers]] [[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie Banjo and Kazooie]] probably won't be appearing in a game again. The BookEnds part is when you remember that Banjo himself made his first appearance as a racer in ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing''.
