** Similarly, we know very little of the owners of the six colored human souls. Their weapons and armor can be picked up throughout the game, but this is all that we have in regards to discerning their personalities.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'' has a whole group of these in the form of the Cobra Unit. [[Webcomic/TheCobraDays Several fan writers/artists]] [[FanFic/TheJoyOfBattle have done their]] [[TheLastDaysOfFoxhound takes on the Cobra Unit]] who, in the game, have a total of about three minutes on screen outside of the battles with them. They are one of the most popular topics of MGS fanfic, especially among female writers.

** At the time of this writing, Marlene [=McKinnon=] has [[http://www.fanfiction.net/book/Harry-Potter/3/0/0/1/0/2228/0/0/0/1/0/ 1,200+ stories]] on Fanfiction.net. Who is Marlene [=McKinnon=]? An Order member who [[PosthumousCharacter died in the First War]], along with her family; [[DeceasedParentsAreTheBest Lily]] mentions having cried all night when she heard about her death. That's basically all we know about her, but fans have (somewhat reasonably) extrapolated that Marlene and Lily may have been friends, and (less reasonably) concluded that Marlene was [[EnsembleDarkhorse Sirius]]' girlfriend/wife/etc., which is where most of her popularity comes from.
** Similarly to Marlene, Mary [=MacDonald=] gets this treatment. All we know is that she was a Hogwarts student during the Marauder Era, so fans often have her and Lily as friends.
** Severus Snape's Hogwarts friends often get this treatment in Marauders or young Snape fanfics. It helps that we are given names for them: Evan Rosier, Avery, Mulciber, Wilkes, Rabastan and Rodolphus Lestrange. Regulus Black as well to a lesser extent.

%%** ** Professor Aurora Sinistra.Sinistra. She teaches Astronomy, and since nothing plot-important really happens there until book 5, she didn't even have a clear gender until that time.



* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'': The original "pilot" short for the series had a version of Adrien Agreste that was much different from the one of the original series (apparently an aloof "bad boy"-type that [[AllGirlsLikeBadBoys Marinette's smitten with]] and, as Chat Noir, was flirty with her (although for ulterior motives)). At some point in the remaking of the concept to an all-ages 3D cartoon, the writing team decided to give Adrien a redesign and make him a genuine NiceGuy (in a strict defiance of the aforementioned AllGirlsLikeBadBoys and also ICanChangeMyBeloved--the creator decided that it would give girls a pretty crappy example to follow), and now having declared their complete dislike of the original Adrien, he will most probably remain on the cutting floor even on the future Anime version. Fans jumped on to him, given him the FanNickname "Felix", and many fanfics have him as Adrien Agreste's AloofBigBrother (or aloof ''twin'') and the DeliberatelyBadExample version of Chat Noir (sometimes Adrien's predecessor on the role, sometimes sharing the role part-time with him--nevertheless, he has less chemistry with Marinette than Adrien does). The original "pilot" design for Marinette is also sometimes given the name "Bridgette" and has adventures alongside the rest of the cast, either being Marinette's sister or a cousin.

* Fans of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse version of Loki frequently import Sigyn from the comics and/or mythology to have someone with a seemingly legitimate romantic stake on Loki. Because Sigyn has never actually appeared in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, fans are pretty free to make her anything they want her to be. Results range from genuinely good characters to shallow [[SatelliteLoveInterest satellite love interests]].

* The ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries'' is full of characters that hardly get any development that many fanfic writers expand on, some noticeable examples include [[Film/{{Transformers}} Annabelle Lennox (and occasionally her parents)]] and Autobots who are not named Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

* The ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movies gave [[NoNameGiven no name]], characterization or any information about the mother of James Norrington other than ''she exists'' (because everyone has one). The MegaCrossover FanWebcomic ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' made her an extremely likable Irish CoolOldLady.

* Uhura's Orion roommate Gaila from ''Film/StarTrek'' (2009) had only a couple of minutes of screentime and a WordofGod backstory as having escaped the Orion slave trade on an "underground railroad" of sorts. Fandom took her and turned her into a sex-positive, feminist symbol through which authors often explore cultural taboos regarding sex as well as culture shock and culture clashes.

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', many of Judy's fellow officers in the ZPD such as Francine, Fangmeyer, Wolford, [=McHorn=], and others often recieve this treatment, due to being Judy's coworkers but having almost no characterization in the movie besides name and species.[[note]]Sometimes not even that; for example people can't seem to agree whether Fangmeyer is a wolf or a tiger[[/note]] Another common target for this treatment is Jack Savage, a rabbit superspy[[note]]although OCStandIn uses of him often cast him in other roles besides secret agent so long as they are BadAss, such as a hard-nosed private detective or a reformed ex-hitman, further driving home that they are essentially an OC in all but name and appearance[[/note]] from an early concept of the movie.

* ''{{Ao Oni}}'': has had a few over the various versions of the game (due to characters' roles becoming bigger, smaller, changing or being removed altogether), but Mika is the most consistent example. In the most recent version (6.23), she receives very little characterization beyond her attraction to Takuro [[spoiler:[[FaceMonsterTurn before dying and coming back]]]].

* The Guardian Spirit from the first ''BatenKaitos'' game is supposed to be [[AnyoneYouKnow you]], and is therefore a sort of {{Featureless Protagonist}}. Naturally, there have been several fanfics written about the this character. Unfortunately, too many of these fics end up making the Spirit a female MarySue with a crush on Kalas. The term "Spirit Sue" was created by the fanbase to describe this particular interpretation of the character.
