* 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.

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

* 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.
