* 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''.

* ''Franchise/MortalKomat'':
** ''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''.

A third of the way into the game, he is revealed as Gumo, [[LastOfHisKind the sole survivor of the Gumon race]], an important supporting character, and also the one who [[BackFromTheDead revives Naru]] near the end.

** The Dalish origin in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' introduces several characters who become important in the next game. Merrill, a temporary companion during the origin becomes a main companion in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Keeper Marethari is a major player in Merrill's storyline and Pol, who is completely optional to talk to, shows up in her one of her quests as well.
*** The mage origin has Cullen, a very minor character you speak to once, who shows up later in the game as the only surviving templar after the Circle tower is overrun by demons. He plays a big role in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' as the second-in-command Knight-Commander Meredith and has an even bigger one in ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Inquisition]]'' as an advisor/possible love interest.
** The elven Gods are mentioned only in codex entries in Origins and are barely heard about until ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Inquisition]]'', where they are revealed to have a huge role in the overall plot.
