* ''KingArthur'': Mordred. In the early mentions of KingArthur in Welsh mythology, Arthur was slain by Medraut, later to be known as Mordred. However, Medraut's importance in the mythos as a whole was almost non-existent, save for that he killed King Arthur. Other villains had come and gone, and it seemed that Mordred was intended to just be another, though the only one who finally got lucky (although Arthur slew him in the same action, so his luck is debatable). Ask anyone in modern times, however, who is ''the'' villain of the story of King Arthur, and the answer you will get is "Mordred" almost all the time (though Morgan Le Fay is another name that also comes up quite frequently, and is, coincidentally, another example of this trope). Mordred has become so integrated into the mythos of Arthur that it is unheard of to ''not'' include him in any story involving Camelot.

** The Mutant Dragon Cyborg Space Pirate known as Ridley is so popular that he appears in almost every single game in one way or another. In the [[VideoGame/Metroid1 first game]], he's [[CoDragons a Co-Dragon]] Space Pirate to Mother Brain along with Kraid. In ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', he's still a Co-Dragon Space Pirate but he has a early boss battle and steal the Baby Metroid. In ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'', he's back as an X-Parasite clone, though he's highly deformed. In ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'', the GBA-remake of the original, Ridley appears TWICE: First as a Dragon, then later his popularity among fans caused the devs to make him the final boss of the game, in the form of Mecha Ridley. In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', he's back as Meta-Ridley, a half dragon, half robot version of the original Ridley. In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'', he's once again returns as Omega Ridley, a Phazon-corrupted, highly deformed and much more powerful version of the good old Ridley. In ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', he appears first as a little fuzz-ball, then a large lizard and finally in his dragon-form that he's known for. The manga also establishes him as Samus' ArchNemesis, having killed her parents.

* Played with with '''two''' ''ComicBook/CaptainAtom'' villains. Major Force was never more than a secondary or even tertiary adversary for Captain Atom, but he later became a fairly major ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' villain, particularly for Kyle Rayner. Wade Eiling, by contrast, was always intended to be the central antagonist for Captain Atom, but has since broken out to become a major villain for the entire DCU. He has also broken out to be a major antagonist for the whole Justice League in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', and now seems slated to become a major recurring antagonist for ''Series/TheFlash2014''.

* Ridley, from ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' was originally just TheDragon ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent literally]]) in [[VideoGame/{{Metroid1}} the original NES game]]. Nowadays he's Samus' ArchEnemy due to his involvement in her past when he murdered her parents and [[JokerImmunity his refusal to stay dead.]] [[AwesomeBosses/{{Metroid}} His consistently awesome boss fights might also have something to do with it.]]

Finally, in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'', it appears once again, and turns out to be from Phaaze, a living, sentient, evil planet consisting 100% of Phazon.
** The minor boss, Nightmare, from ''Fusion'' was clearly popular enough to get a second appearance in ''Other M''.
