** The first major villain introduced in Season 4 is gang leader Tobias Church, who unites the criminal organizations of Star City and seems set up as the main threat Team Arrow will have to face down. However, it only takes them five episodes to take him down [[spoiler: and then he's [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness killed]] by the real BigBad, Prometheus.]]

Added DiffLines:

* [[EvilOverlord The Pannion Seer]] in the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen''. The Seer is a distant character in the first two books, but his existence and the threat of his rapidly expanding empire provides the impetus for most of the plot of the first and parts of the second, and then he takes center stage as the main villain in the third, ''Memories of Ice''. Then at the end of the book he's defeated and turns out to have been a pawn all along for the ''real'' BigBad, [[MadGod the Crippled God]], something even the Seer himself was unaware of. [[spoiler: Of course, even the Crippled God himself has elements of this trope too, as the AbusivePrecursors called the Forkrul Assail edge him out as the main threat in the last two books]].

** Season 4 spends the first several episodes building up [[MadScientist Lucy Bauer]] as the main antagonist, in her quest to free herself of her ghost state no matter the cost. However, in Episode 6, she's [[DeaderThanDead destroyed by the Ghost Rider]], paving the way for [[spoiler: [[EvilAllAlong Eli Morrow]]]] to use her experiments for his [[AGodAmI own goals]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' does this a few times:
** Season 2's flashback storyline has as its main antagonist [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. Anthony Ivo]]. However, about two-thirds through the season [[spoiler: his actions trigger Slade's StartOfDarkness, leading to him [[EvilerThanThou overthrowing Ivo]] and taking control of his resources]].
** In Season 3's flashbacks, we apparently have a BigBadEnsemble between [[TriadsAndTongs China White]] and [[WellIntentionedExtremist Amanda Waller]]. But later on, [[spoiler: the former is arrested, while the latter turns out to be eclipsed by [[GeneralRipper General Shrieve]]]].
