* Martian Manhunter's return in the final episode of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. And Darkseid (although he showed up at the end of the second-to-last). Come to think of it, every major character who wasn't either dead (Brainiac), not yet born (''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''), in the future (Supergirl) or ExiledFromContinuity (Bat-Embargo characters) who ever appeared in the DCAU could qualify for this, even though most of them were limited to cameos.

Added DiffLines:

* Taken to the highest possible extreme in ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', where [[spoiler:Dream's funeral]] is attended by ''every single being that lives or has ever lived''. In practice this means almost every character to have played a role in the series, ''plus'' cameos by many members of the DCUniverse, ''plus'' [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the reader]].

* In a subversion, Sharona Fleming from ''Series/{{Monk}}'' is supposed to 'fly in' during the last episode of the sixth season. Then the problem resolves itself, and she never shows up.

It's zig-zagged for the final season, as she does return during it, but ''not'' during the final episode, instead showing up a few episodes prior.

* Eric left ''{{That 70s Show}}'' after the end of the seventh season, and Kelso left four episodes into the eighth. Both return for the final episode (or rather, final ''scene'' in Eric's case). Counts in-universe too, as the series finale was New Year's Eve 1979.
* Jimmy Doherty (Eddie Cibrian), Kim Zambrano (Kim Raver) and "Doc" Parker (Michael Beach) returned for ''ThirdWatch's'' finale, although only Doc had lines.
