* During the first time of ComicBook/TheAvengers, the Nazi fugitive Baron Zemo had a base [[ArgentinaIsNaziland somewhere in a jungle in South America]]. Zemo finally died fighting against Captain America. One of his mooks, wandering alone in the jungle, had a great idea: use on himself the machine that Zemo once used over some guy to turn him into Wonder Man. This mook got similar powers, and took the name Power Man (yes, the same former name of Luke Cage: they fought for the name, and Cage won). Some years later, he got size-changing powers. Then, ionic powers. And then he became a super-hero, Atlas of the {{Thunderbolts}}.
* In [[MarvelComics Marvel's]] ''[[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel G.I. Joe]]'' comic, the S.A.W. Viper who killed Doc and a few other Joes was just a nameless mook. At the same time, {{Hasbro}} introduced an unrelated character to the toyline named Overkill who was originally a soulless android. Later versions of Overkill retconned his background as a Cobra soldier who had half of his body parts replaced with cyborg implants. The Overkill in the Devil's Due series is a [[CompositeCharacter composite]] of the formerly nameless S.A.W. Viper from the Marvel series and the second Overkill from the toyline.

** 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.]]

* 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.]]
