* Music/{{mothy}}'s ''Franchise/EvilliousChronicles'' song "Daughter of Evil" (sung by Kagamine Rin) gives us this example: Early on, the song mentions that the princess has a "servant with a like face". In the sequel, "Servant of Evil" sung Kagamine Len, it turns out that [[spoiler:the servant in question, the princess's twin brother, changed clothes with her so he could die in his sister's place.]]
** Fans waited years for the song representing [[SevenDeadlySins Wrath]] to come out. A FandomBerserkButton was to say that "The Last Revolver" was the Wrath song. [[HilariousInHindsight Come 2014]], and "The Last Revolver" turns out to be the backstory for the Wrath song, "The Muzzle of Nemesis". The Wrath sinner was staring everyone in the face for four years and no one knew it. Bonus points for being an actual gunman.

* A zombie {{Deadpool}} appeared in ''ComicBook/MarvelZombies'', but only as an extra without dialogue. Later on, he plays a main role in the series. Similarly Black Bolt appeared numerous times in the series, but doesn't get an actual role until much later.

** ComicBook/UltimateMarvel was fond of doing this, often revealing a seemingly minor character to be the Ultimate Universe equivalent to a character from the mainstream Marvel Universe.

* Very common in ''Series/{{Monk}}''. The office episode has to be a particularly {{egregious}} example: [[spoiler:the guy didn't even ''talk'' before Monk suddenly singled him out as the killer]]. The baseball episode is a pretty extreme example as well, considering that the killer turns out to be [[spoiler: someone Monk had seen appearing in an advertisement for a few seconds, not speaking, earlier in the case]].

* In NoelCoward's ''Theatre/BlitheSpirit'', the one who called the ghosts into the house and is keeping them tied there turns out to be [[spoiler:[[TheButlerDidIt the maid]], an overeager girl who for most of the play has just been your typical simple servant played for laughs]].

* Felgrand in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' originally came off as just a random O.C created to take Giovanni's role in Celadon (down to having the same team as Giovanni at that location), and when the Team Rocket Trio grabbed him at the end of chapter 20 he'd never be important again. Then he returned in [[WhamEpisode Chapter 23]] to collaborate the reveal of the chapter.
