* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', by the same author as the below, has quite a lot of these thanks to the author's penchant for reimagining characters, as well as throwing in those characters at the last minute, later developing them into prominent figures in the story. The two main examples come in the form of Carol Danvers and Diana [[spoiler: Themyscira]], both of which were added in at the last minute, apparently entirely on a whim and praised as original takes on the character. They've both grown from fairly minor characters into two of Harry's closest friends, two of the more {{Badass}} characters in the story and ''bona fide'' fan favourites - in a poll of favourite new or reimagined characters, Diana was the runaway winner, with Carol being joint third behind (unsurprisingly) [[spoiler: the Winter Soldier]], who's even more of a {{Woobie}} than usual thanks to the sections from his perspective, and sharing third place with [[ThoseTwoGuys Huginn and Muninn]]. Indeed, Carol's grown into a full on BreakOutCharacter, being close to a {{Deuteragonist}} with Harry, and she and Harry are now the FanPreferredCouple (with Harry/Diana being close behind).

** Jean-Paul Beaubier a.k.a. Northstar and Uhtred Ullrson. The former is a fairly minor member of the ''ComicBook/XMen'' and the latter began as a minor {{OC}} Asgardian who was apparently set up to be TheRival to Harry. Both become two of his closest friends, with the former developing into a [[ObfuscatingStupidity deceptively harmless]] CampGay flirt with considerable HiddenDepths, the ability to pull off an absolute absent minded SherlockScan and be [[BadassGay arguably the most]] [[CombatPragmatist ruthless of the kids in a fight]], as well as being the OnlySaneMan. Also, as of chapter 60 [[spoiler: he seems to be this world's version of the Flash.]] Uhtred, meanwhile, is developed from a fairly FlatCharacter whose primary motivation was resentment at the attention Harry got simply for existing, while his hard work barely got him any, to (one shared NearDeathExperience later) Harry's loyal ([[ServileSnarker if snarky]]) oathman and Sworn Sword, a major league {{Badass}} who knows his way around [[AnAxeToGrind an axe]]. Also, he and Jean-Paul are pretty much a de facto BattleCouple.

* The ''BridgeToTerabithia'' fanfic "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9326187/1/Unearthing-Secrets Unearthing Secrets]]" has Conrad, the ''very'' British exchange student and Jesse's best guy-friend, due to his realizing Jess and Leslie want to be more than friends before even they do and making frequent and amusing attempts to cockblock Leslie's egotistical RomanticFalseLead whenever he is able.

* Yuuka Kazami of Fanfic/ImperfectMetamorphosis was growing to be such a focal point of the plot that the [[Tropers/TakerFoxx author]] ended up having to devote several chapters to a giant brawl between her and Yukari to take them out of the direct action for a while and realign the focus to [[spoiler: Rin and Rumia]]. Being a maniacal, sadistic, overpowered [[TheGadfly gadfly]] tends to have that effect. Being a [[spoiler: [[HPLovecraft Great Old One]]]] doesn't hurt much either.

** On the villainous side of things, Gravemoss started out as a minor, creepy {{Necromancer}} who was the villain of a minor arc in ''ComicBook/Excalibur'' and included simply for variety. He quickly grows into a major league villain and a character that fans love to hate.

* In the ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'', Emrys Ap Derfel. Originally created, as WordOfGod admits, as an unintentional {{Expy}} of the author and of Harry himself - green eyes, difficult past, great power and destiny, something which has previously been lampshaded, Emrys Ap Derfel was well received. Several plot developments, an epilogue and the start of a sequel, he's developed into a key member of the main cast and WordOfGod has hinted that he'll take over Harry's role as TheHero later on in the ExpandedUniverse.

** Huginn and Muninn barely appear at all in the comics and tend not to be all that interesting when they do. Here, they're characterised as ThoseTwoGuys who are [[ObfuscatingStupidity outwardly ridiculous]], incongruously Brooklyn accented [[KlingonsLoveShakespeare (apparently they heard the accent one and decided they liked it)]] and [[TrademarkFavouriteFood Marshmallow/Eyeball obsessed]] {{DeadpanSnarker}}s who are [[BewareTheSillyOnes repeatedly implied to be much more dangerous than they appear]] and take a liking to Harry. They provide a snarky, though sometimes serious, commentary on events.

** Sean Cassidy is added for the sake of variety to Peter Wisdom's Exalibur squad, but despite initial uncertainty by fans, grows into a popular mentor figure to Harry, something helped by his nature as an AdaptationalBadass [[BadassGrandpa Grandpa]], something helped by the way he gently reins Harry in when he looks to be going too far and the bond he has with Luna Lovegood.

* Xavier, the reptilian Cyn'Taak, from ''FanFic/ZeldasHonor'' is a very popular one with readers. She is decribed as being very loyal and innocent but still highly lethal and dangerous. [[spoiler: Her survival of the endgame events]] prompted a rather overjoyed response from one reviewer.
