* In ''TalesOfTheQuestor'', there is a small story where Linneaus, a Raccoonan pastor learns that the Alligator people in the swamp were looking for information about God and he volunteers to go to them as a missionary. While that story seems like a postscript story to the strip's first major continuity, there is a later story where a wizard tells of a boy with a powerful talent for magic who goes half-crazed in horror of his power and the people who tried to exploit him and he was last seen running into the swamp, never to be seen again. These stories may be unrelated, but given the religious allegory nature of the strip, it would seem that the boy is inadvertently heading for the one Raccoonan who can help him.

* Played with in Fanfic/JusticeSocietyOfJapan. Given how [[CodeGeass Lelouch Lamperogue]] and the Black Knights appear early one, one would expect that Zero would be one of the founding members of the titular team. [[spoiler: Subverted in that he isn't. Shirley Fenette is. But double subverted in that Lelouch himself plays an important role.]]

* Early episodes of ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' often showed someone watching the Connors, although usually all we could see was an arm with a barcode tattoo. Derek Reese (and, yes, he is related to Kyle) eventually became one of the series leads.
* Frasier Crane's first appearance on ''{{Cheers}}'' (Season 3, Episode 1: "Rebound, Part 1") was as a nameless bar patron, until Diane sprung it on Sam that her shrink happened to be at the bar, observing them the whole time! Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) eventually stayed on long after Diane (Shelley Long) left the show, and eventually got his own spin-off.
