** Don't forget Slagar. [[spoiler:He started out as the offspring of the healer employed by the BigBad in the previous book, then in the intervening fifteen-to-twenty seasons suffered a snakebite to the face, went insane and started working with a child slavery ring.]]

Added DiffLines:
* Also from the Zelda series: Vire, the miniboss of both ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle]]'' games' sixth dungeons. He's graphically identical (though tougher and faster) to a regular late-game enemy in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''.

* A rare ''heroic'' version of this occurred in ''Film/TheLegoMovie,'' where Emmett, just a random, nameless cog in President Business's empire, winds up revealed to be The Special, destined to defeat him. [[spoiler: Taking this a step even further, Emmett in reality is just a generic construction-worker that Finn picked up and started playing with, and The Man Upstairs even informs him that rather than being a licensed or special toy like Batman or Superman, Emmett is a nobody.]]

* In the ''ModernWarfare'' series, Vladimir Makarov, BigBad of the second two games, was in fact just another soldier in Zakhaev's army when Price shot his arm off in Chernobyl in 1996. Makarov saved Zakhaev's life and was rewarded as a loyal minion, rising through the ranks of the Ultranationalist command until Soap killed Zakhaev in 2011. Makarov took control of the radical elements of the Ultranationalists, and became a vastly greater threat than his mentor ever was.

* Johnny Sasaki from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''. In the first game he was a bid at humanising the mooks by giving one a name and history. In ''MetalGearSolid2'', he graduated to the role of recurring comic relief character. By ''MetalGearSolid4'' he becomes, in a scene that really has to be seen to be believed, [[spoiler:a super-smooth action man who helps save the world. And steals Snake's girl.]]

* In ''LiveALive'', in every room of the Technique Dungeon, you will be pursued by an obese, pink guy who seems to be infatuated with your player character, no matter what gender they are. Being caught makes a fight ensue. If you finally find the treasure of the dungeon, he will fight you again for one last time... except the only thing that changes is that the boss song plays. He's still as strong as he was before.

* In an episode of ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'', the Colonials nickname a Cylon Raider with a distinctive wound "Scar" and put a bounty on its head, the only time in the series that they treat a Raider as a distinct individual instead of just another Mook.

* In ''Film/TheGodfather'' movies, Al Neri and Rocco Lampone are minor hitmen in the first movie and are promoted to bigger roles as Michael Corleone's capos in Part II. Willi Cicci is also a hitman with few lines in the Part I, then Frank Pentageli's right hand man in Part II. In Part III he was supposed to appear again in a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of real life mobster John Gotti but the actor Joe Spinell died before filming began and was replaced by Joe Mantagna playing a new character "Joey Zaza".

* The Brain Gremlin in ''Gremlins2TheNewBatch'' gets, as you might suspect from his name, an intelligence upgrade and instantly becomes the creatures' leader and spokescritter.
