** Even Darth Vader is one of these. In the first movie, he barely even appears, and when he does, he's usually being [[TheDragon subordinate]] to Grand Moff Tarkin. He didn't even get his iconic "Imperial March" {{Leitmotif}} until ''[[StarWarsEpisodeVTheEmpireStrikesBack Empire Strikes Back]]. In early drafts of the script, he was even killed in the Death Star trench run, and was never intended to [[ItWasHisSled be Luke's father]]. Fortunately, however, Lucas decided to insert a shot of him escaping as a SequelHook, and he ended up becoming ''the'' big villain of the series, enough to warrant a three-movie-long StartOfDarkness arc.

This is that character. Usually starring in a sitcom, the breakout character quickly grabs hold of the audience's attention and writers take advantage of this energy. Someone who was once a one-note C-character (such as a SatelliteCharacter or a LivingProp) becomes a central part of the regular cast. Often liable to lead to a SpinOff, or be subject to becoming an AdaptationalBadass. Sometimes a breakout character becomes such because they fill a niche in the cast that wasn't previously filled or acts as an impressive foil to [[TheHero the Hero]].

'''Morrigan''': I know it's hard to believe, but ([[VampireLord Demitri Maxioff]]) actually was the main character for a while. But now it's time to use our charm and wit, and deftly usurp the throne of protagonist!
