* Given its ACastOfThousands nature and being spread over several decades of in-universe time, this happens to several characters in the HonorHarrington series. One of the more notable ones is Kevin Usher. Seen in one book in a brief bit where he's part of a team that assassinates a member of the Havenite leadership to kick off the revolution that throws out the Legislaturists, he reappears sometime later in a short story as a member of the Havenite embassy on Earth. Several books later, after the second revolution, he's Haven's top cop and counter-spy.

* In the fluff of ''SwordOfTheStars'', for the [[BeePeople Hivers]], if your [[MonsterProgenitor mommy]] loves you very much, when you die, she'll eat your brain and reincarnate you in a new body, with the chance of being reborn as a [[MonsterLord Prince]]. And if you should manage to impress [[HiveQueen grandma]] enough, you might even come back as a Princess.

* ''PokemonSpecial'' plays this forward and backwards in the R/S arc. For their success in stealing a vital submarine component, Archie promotes Matt, Amber, and Shelly to [[EliteMook Admin]] status, but they have a new mission as a price tag - they failed to bump off Chairman Stone due to the interference of one Sapphire Birch, so their new mission is to put her on ice.

* 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 ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', 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.]]

** Of note, in Alpha Complex, ''everyone'' starts at the bottom. NPC Ultraviolets (or even PC Ultraviolets with the High Programmers sourcebook) started out as lowly Infrareds at some point and earned their way to higher clearances. It's just that the [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder nature of Troubleshooters]] means it's very, ''very'' rare for them to survive long enough to be promoted.

* Agent Smith from ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' starts out as an interchangeable faceless Agent, until he sits down alone with Morpehus and gives his "humans are a virus" speech and begins displaying his own personality and following his own agenda. In the later movies he works against both the humans and the machines, eith a black suit rather than dark green and no earpiece, indicating that he is now outside the system.
