* The ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' expansion ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening Awakening]]'' transplants the player's Warden to a different part of Thedas, where s/he acquires a whole new RagtagBunchOfMisfits (save one veteran who suffered from LateCharacterSyndrome in the main game). This is also mostly true for the standalone DLC mini-campaigns that star the Warden: "[[BrutalBonusLevel The Golems of Amgarrak]]" give you the Dace brothers, their pet bronto, and a healing golem as companions, while "Witch Hunt" sees a Dalish warrior and a Circle mage join you (alongside Dog from the original game) on the quest to find Morrigan.

* ''MaxPayne3'' stars the eponymous character in the lead role once more but the entire supporting cast from the first two games is replaced with new characters. This is likely due to the fact [[spoiler: that most of them end up dead]].

* Guts of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', after [[spoiler:losing the Band of the Hawk to the horrors of the Eclipse]], gains a new circle of TrueCompanions in the form of Serpico, Farnese, Isidro and Schierke. The only person still with him from his original group is Casca, though given [[spoiler:the traumas she suffered during the Eclipse at the hands of Griffith himself]], she's not of a lot of help to the rest of the crew.

* The second season of ''RecordOfLodossWar'' has Parn (older), and Deedlit (unchanged, given she's an elf), but most of the rest of the cast is changed. Oddly, certain characters are introduced is if the main cast has never met them, such as Parn's "first fight" with Orsen and Sharis.

* In ''ShockTreatment'', the semi-sequel to ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', Brad and Janet (and minor characters Ralph and Betty- and possibly the Criminologist) are the only Rocky characters to appear. In an unusual case, all except Ralph and the Criminologist are played by different performers, while several performers from Rocky appear in different roles.

* This was the case for the first several ''Film/MissionImpossible'' films, with Tom Cruise and Ving Rhames being the only constants throughout the first three films while all of their other teammates or supervisors would be replaced or killed off. The fourth film plays with it a bit, in that Rhames' character is mostly absent outside of a cameo at the end, but Simon Pegg's minor character from the third film is given an expanded part. It's outright averted in the fifth film, as Cruise, Pegg, Rhames and Jeremy Renner (who was a prominent supporting figure in the fourth film as well) all return in major parts.

There is this new version of an old series. You may notice from the beginning that it continues from the original work instead of being a sort of reboot. However, despite TheHero still being there, most of the supporting cast has been changed for new characters, except for one or two. Sometimes this is due to the hero having moved to a new city. Part of the new cast tend to be Expies to old characters. It could be considered a ReTool.

Contrast ChangingOfTheGuard. See also SpinOff, where it's a secondary character being placed in a new setting instead of TheHero.

Season two begins with several new characters meeting a new, stronger and far more stoic Baam.
** The rest of the season 1 cast has since begun to be reintroduced into the story, at least the important ones... and [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Para]][[TheFriendNobodyLikes kewl]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'', the movie spin-off of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', had Twilight and Spike enter the mirror to the human-world without their friends, but in the process make new friends out of the older ones' humanized counterparts. Technically, those humans ''are'' Twilight's friends, but at the same time they aren't, so it's likely debatable.
** As of the third movie, none of the characters from the show appear at all, though as usual, most of the cast consists of expies.
