* Many of the characters in ''Film/Warcraft'' count as this, as long as we're only comparing to the first game (from which the movie is adapted), Warcraft: Orcs and Humans. Garona, Gul'Dan, Blackhand, Lothar, Llane, and Medivh, are the only characters that had appeared and were actually named in the original game. Most of the other characters used in the movie only appeared in the second game or its expansion at the earliest.

** The most extreme example is perhaps Alodi, introduced in the manga as the very first Guardian, he wasn't even mentioned in World of Warcraft until he got an Artifact named after him in Legion, and he [[GenderFlip (or rather she)]] plays a part in [[spoiler:resolving
*** Similarly, Durotan and Draka's first canon appearance was a book released just before Burning Crusade.
** Orgrim is an interesting example. In the Orc Campaign (which was the canon ending for the first Warcraft) the player character becomes the Warchief. In the second game and onwards the orc that did this was named Orgrim Doomhammer. Depending on your interpretation of canon, he's either the player character of Orcs and Humans (which would disqualify him from this trope), or was retconned in.

* In ''{{Transformers}}'' fandom, this manages to mix with the MerchandiseDriven nature of the franchise to form an extreme case... even if a character doesn't have so much as a cameo anywhere in the ExpandedUniverse, if a toy is made, [[SchrodingersGun it's implied that that character is out there somewhere]]. Not that Doom-Lock or Hardtop will ever drop us a line or anything, but we know they're somewhere doing their thing.

* Merle and Daryl Dixon were both created for ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' with both blessing and input from Creator/RobertKirkman. The trope gets take to its LogicalExtreme in Series/FearTheWalkingDead, with Kirkman creating an entire new cast of characters for use in the sister series.

** Also, with the number of {{Promoted Fanboy}}s involved with TF production, ''never'' count out ''any'' of them when it comes to getting their day in the sun. Doom-Lock was scheduled to appear in the ''TransformersEnergon'' comic, but Dreamwave went kaput before he could. Hardtop has since appeared in some comics and one text story. The IDW Comics series, on the other hand, has a ''gazillion'' characters of varying importance who have been toy-only - since 1985.

* The ''ZatchBell'' manga began with Kiyo discovering Zatch's powers; they didn't meet a "mamodo" team until the next chapter. The anime stuffed what many fans believed to be a non-canonical mamodo team in the first episode, Hyde and Eido. This was reinforced by the plot point that everyone's spellbooks would tell its owners how many mamodo were left in the battle, something not shown in the anime. However, [[spoiler:at the end of the manga when all the defeated mamodo show up to lend their powers to Zatch, Hyde is among the mamodo that appear. Apparently in the manga he was defeated by someone else offscreen.]]

* An odd example occurs in Franchise/StarWars. The character of [[Literature/DarthBane Darth Bane]] was created by George Lucas as part of the backstory for the Sith -- and was mentioned in [[Film/ThePhantomMenace The Phantom Menace]] novelization -- but wasn't integrated fully into the current canon until his one episode appearance in [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars The Clone Wars]]. Under the old pre-Disney canon, Bane was canon simply because Lucas said so, but when he sold the franchise to Disney the rules changed and it was only by making an on-screen appearance that Bane was restored to canon.
