** ''VideoGame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' has Magicant's Dragon. You can't miss it when you first go underground, but at that time you can barely interact with it. It's only when you come back later in the game that you find out it guards the third-to-last melody.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', during the intro where you control Bruce Wayne, a prisoner standing in front of him on a line will say "You're dead, Bruce Wayne...you're on my list". Since he looks somewhat nondescript and everyone else is hurling threats at Wayne, you tend to ignore him. [[spoiler:He's actually Floyd Lawton AKA Deadshot, the focus of a sidequest chain]].

* Janos Audron is mentioned in precisely two lines in ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain: Blood Omen'', presumably to never be seen or heard of again. Two games later, he became a ''major'' character and the main driving force behind the BigBad's actions.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': Aiden appeared in the first episode as a {{Jerkass}} opponent to contrast NiceGuy Lukas; he sabotages your build, and then later insults Jesse at Endercon, before disappearing. He optionally reappears at the end of episode 4 in a BigDamnHeroes moment with the other Ocelots, but this trope primarily comes into effect as he becomes the BigBad of episode 5.

* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', [[spoiler:Jack, the first person you interact with, along with The Cab Driver responsible for getting the Main Character around Los Angeles, turn out to be responsible for ''everything'' that has happened throughout the game. The Cab Driver is even heavily implied to be ''Cain'', the ''Father of all Vampires''! Amusingly, if the player chooses to play as a Malkavian, this plot twist is {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d during dialogue with some characters, though it is difficult to spot without having played through the game at least once]].

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'': Sindel falls under this trope as well. Revived by Quan Chi's necromancy, later powered up by Shang Tsung's soul by Shao Kahn, which leads her to slaughter her daughter and most of the Forces of Light, with Nightwolf [[HeroicSacrifice killing both him and Sindel]] in the process.
* The [[GaidenGame action game spin-off]] ''VideoGame/MortalKombatMythologiesSubZero'' featured the first appearances of a few of the playable characters from ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4'': namely Quan-Chi, Shinnok, and Fujin (who appears as a nameless Wind God). Sareena from the same game was never intended to be a playable character in the fighting games, but became an AscendedExtra when she was reintroduced in the GBA game ''Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition''.

** ''VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance'' makes passing reference to the fallen Dragon King Onaga, whose immortal army Quan Chi and Shang Tsung plan to resurrect using the souls of slain enemies. Guess who's the BigBad of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatDeception''.
