* One of the security guards who carried a terrified [[Wrestling/MikeBucci Simon Dean]] to the ring for his match against the debuting [[Wrestling/TheBoogeyman Boogeyman]] on the December 2, 2005 ''[=SmackDown!=]''? That's Cliff Compton, later known as Dice Domino of the tag team Deuce N' Domino.

* In his first appearance in the RobinHood ballads, Guy Of Guisborne is a bounty hunter in horsehide armour who Robin beheads. Modern retellings have promoted the character being TheDragon to the Sheriff of Nottingham (or sometimes the BigBad himself) because he was one of the few villains from the ballads [[NominalImportance to be given a name]] ([[AlliterativeName and a catchy one, at that]]), and the fact that held his own against Robin in an epic swordfight described as lasting "two howres".

* Rare musical instrument example: Keyboard instruments (usually the harpsichord or organ) were originally used just for bass accompaniment (basso continuo). Then along came Music/JohannSebastianBach, with his keyboard [[AwesomeMusic toccatas, preludes, fugues, passacaglias, fantasies, etc.]] which showed the world that keyboard instruments were fit as the main instrument of a concerto or even as a solo instrument.

* Used for a World Wrestling Counsel angle, where [[Wrestling/CarlitoColon Carly Colón]] had little interest in becoming a wrestler and was content to help his father's company by filming some shows. But then Ray González discovered that one of the cameramen was the son of the boss and decided to try and exploit the fact to his advantage...which lead to him beating up Carly when he made it clear he wanted nothing to do with González. Then Carly decided to jump into a more active role.

* MissSaigon: Ruthie Henshall is one of the nameless bar girls in the original London production before eventually playing the role of Ellen (the woman Chris marries after the war). In fact, most of the "bar girl" actresses went on to play Kim (the titular character) or Ellen.

By the time ''NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'' and ''NoobLaQueteLegendaire'' roll in, he's the first to benefit from the bigger focus the Coalition has been getting.

* Haru from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' appeared in one episode of the first season. However, when ''VideoGame/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' came around, he became one of the playable characters. This was the only thing he was apart of before Book 3 was released where he and his father, Tyro, came to join the attack against the Fire Nation.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'', Kano Kirishima and Minagi Tohno were DemotedToExtra, and never referenced again, not even in the movie. However, both girls were given a second chance in ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', where they appear as playable characters: Kano uses elemental magic to fight, and Minagi weaponizes her rice tickets. Minagi's friend Michiru counts as well, as she and Minagi fight jointly, although you can only control Michiru vis special moves.
* Something similar happened to characters from ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'': Sayuri Kurata was originally a support character, but not one of the selectable girls, hoever, she became a playable character in ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', where she fights with MagicalGirl powers.
** Later, in the ''Bad Moon Edition'' UpdatedRerelease, Kaori Misaka and Mishio Amano were added to the roster: Kaori as a powerful boxer, and Mishio as a spear master; Much later, in the ''Memorial'' version, Akiko Minase was also added as a playable character, she fighs with a vast array of household tools, and can also use her "[[GargleBlaster Special Jam]]" in battle.

* Several minor characters in Shakespeare's ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'' seem to barely qualify to have names until very late into the play.
** Mercutio in ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''. In Shakespeare's source, ''The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet'', he makes one appearance, and only gets mentioned at all because he happens to be sitting next to Juliet at the feast. Shakespeare makes him Romeo's best friend, the only person who can maintain connections with both the Capulets and the Montegues, a {{Trickster}} and a DeadpanSnarker.
* Will Parker is one half of the BetaCouple in the musical ''Theatre/{{Oklahoma}}''. He wasn't really a character in ''Green Grow The Lilacs'' (the straight play ''Oklahoma!'' was derived from), which mentioned him ''once''.
* In ''Theatre/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'', the two most minor characters in ''{{Hamlet}}'' become the focus of the whole story, and Hamlet becomes just a bit part.
* Neil Simon's first play, ''Come Blow Your Horn'', briefly mentions an offstage character named Felix Ungar. Felix, of course, later became half of the eponymous duo in Simon's ''Theatre/TheOddCouple'' and its film and TV adaptations.



* ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' (the 2013 West End musical) elevates Charlie's other grandparents to equal status with OlderSidekick Grandpa Joe by having them share MrExposition duties in Act One. Mr. and Mrs. Bucket (especially the former) also get more-rounded personalities and a ParentalLoveSong. Mrs. Teavee is elevated from a more-or-less homogenous DotingParent in the novel into a StepfordSmiler {{Housewife}} at the mercy of an EnfantTerrible son and a key source of comedy in Act Two.

* ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'''s main character, Albus Potter, had about four lines at the end of the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows final Harry Potter book]]. Notably, all those four-ish lines are in the play, so Albus's ascension is immediate.

* ''Shrek the Musical'' expands the roles of Pinocchio, Gingy, and the rest of the banished fairy tale creatures by introducing a new substory in which they rebel against Lord Farquaad's laws against "freaks". This new story, of course, was included to help further the show's moral of embracing one's uniqueness, and their show stopping number, "Freak Flag", delivers the message perfectly.

* The Toa Inika from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' started out as mere [[{{Hobbits}} Matoran]] who were barely mentioned (if at all) in the ''Chronicles'' series of books. In ''Legends'', however, they become the central heroes for the first two thirds of the [[MacGuffin Mask of Life]] story arc. Special mention goes to Hahli who started out as a randomly introduced Ga-Matoran in 2002, replacing the little-known Kotu as the series' "secondary" Ga-Matoran character, and was PromotedToLoveInterest to Jaller almost immediately. In 2003, she was the star of her own online game and became an important supporting character in TheMovie, thereby pushing Macku, the former "main" Ga-Matoran, into "second-tier" status.

* Happened twofold with Wrestling/DolphZiggler, who first appeared in WWE in 2005 as Wrestling/ChavoGuerreroJr's caddy in the short-lived and controversial Kerwin White gimmick. Once that gimmick was canned, he reappeared as Nicky, a member of the Spirit Squad. He finally debuted as a singles wrestler with the Dolph Ziggler name in 2008, where he eventually became World Champion in 2011.
* {{Wrestling/Batista}} first appeared in WWE as Deacon Batista, the muscle for D-Von Dudley of Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys' short-lived Reverend D-von gimmick in 2002. It was the following year when Wrestling/TripleH picked him up as the main muscle for {{Wrestling/Evolution}}, and he went on to become a multiple-time champion.
