* A very delayed case is Lord Death Man from the 1960s ''Manga/{{Batman}}'' manga. A one-shot villain in the manga, based on a forgotten one-shot villain from the Silver Age ''Batman'' comics called Deathman, he became so popular in the 2000s, after his story was republished in the translated ''Bat-Manga'' anthology, that he was introduced to the main DC universe in ''Batman Incorporated''. A version of the character also appeared in the ''Batman '66'' comic series set in the 1960s ''Series/{{Batman}}'' TV continuity.

* ''WebAnimation/Retropokon'': Darkpokon was a fanmade villain for WebVideo/TheJohnShow who [[spoiler:appeared in the third year anniversary special]]. That's the only time it was canon on the show, but it became so popular with its Narm that won a poll in Lawl of the Dead and became the 20th character.

** Frieza/Freeza, despite being one of many [[BigBad Big Bads]] in the series, has practically become synonymous with the franchise - likely due to a mix of voice-acting, character design and [[Monster/DragonBall sheer monstrosity]]. He has been featured the most as the main villain of the video games, despite appearing at the series' overall halfway point and being ''much'' [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil weaker than Cell or Buu]]. As if to cement this, he returns in the Toriyama-devised ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection F]]'' and the ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' arc that adapts it, and he gets a ''humongous'' power boost as well. [[spoiler: Upcoming episode previews suggest he is going to make ''yet another'' comeback, but this time ''[[EnemyMine being forced to work with Goku and his allies]]''.]]

* Springtrap from ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' was just the game's only animatronic at first, [[ArtifactTitle despite not even being Freddy Fazbear himself]]. However, he wound up becoming a fan-favorite, and reached almost the same heights of prominence as the main four animatronics of [[Franchise/FiveNightsAtFreddys the series]], getting a smaller iteration of him in Plushtrap in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'', an appearance in [[Literature/FiveNightsAtFreddysTheSilverEyes both]] [[Literature/FiveNightsAtFreddysTheTwistedOnes novels]], and [[spoiler:a cameo at the end of ''[[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation Sister Location]]'']]. It probably helps that [[spoiler:he's also the GreaterScopeVillain of the franchise (though ''Sister Location'' throws some doubt over this)]].

** Exdeath (the BigBad to the aforementioned Gilgamesh's [[TheDragon Dragon]]) becomes this himself in ''Dissidia 012'', the prequel to ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. In the first ''Dissidia'', thanks to the power of [[{{Mondegreen}} incomprehensible battle quotes]] and [[LargeHam hickory-smoked lines]], Exdeath became a [[FountainOfMemes Sealed Meme In A Tree]] and went from one of the most-overlooked villains in the series to one who gave longstanding fan-faves like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse a run for their money]]. It's unknown how attentive Square Enix was to his overnight surge I popularity, but given that [[PowerOfTheVoid VOID!]] jokes [[AscendedMeme run abundant]] in ''Duodecim'', it's a safe bet that they knew. On top of this, [[spoiler:[[TheManBehindTheMonsters his control of the]] [[{{Golems}} manikins]] led to the ''[[KilledOffForReal permanent deaths]]'' of every newcomer ''not'' named Gilgamesh or [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Prishe]], as well as [[TheBadGuyWins Team Chaos' victory in the 12th cycle]].]]
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyxV'', the true BigBad of the game is Ardyn Izunia. Initially TheDragon to Emperor Iedolas in the game's early concepts, Ardyn evolved into the main villain: A scheming MagnificentBastard with a fascinating backstory, terrific voice acting by Darin de Paul, incredible foresight and intelligence who also manages to be incredibly entertaining whenever he's onscreen and carries off the vast majority of his plans without a hitch. Ardyn quickly became a favorite of players to the point where practically nobody has complained about his massively expanded role and he's frequently cited as one of the best parts of the game.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' produced not one but ''two'' of these. In the game itself, BigBad Exdeath (the BigBad was seen as a fairly flat character in comparison to the aforementioned Gilgamesh's his outstandingly [[LargeHam hammy]] [[TheDragon Dragon]]) becomes this himself in ''Dissidia 012'', Dragon]], Gilgamesh, who as a result ended up traveling the prequel to ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. In the first ''Dissidia'', Void and winding up in various other Final Fantasy games. And then came ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', where thanks to the power of [[{{Mondegreen}} incomprehensible battle quotes]] and [[LargeHam hickory-smoked lines]], Exdeath became a [[FountainOfMemes Sealed Meme In A Tree]] and went from one of the most-overlooked villains in the series to one who gave longstanding fan-faves like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse a run for their money]].

** 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. [[Manga/MetroidManga The manga]] also establishes him as Samus' ArchNemesis, having killed her parents.
