* Before writing ''Literature/HarryPotter,'' Creator/JKRowling made a list of forty students who would be in the title character's year. Naturally, familiar names will show up whenever we near to hear what a [[HufflepuffHouse random Hufflepuff]] thinks about the yearly crisis.

** The "[[FanNickname Yuppie Couple]]" (whose real names are Margot Yale and Breandan Quarters) have moved out of the background and have become involved in the greater story, making them no longer an example of the trope named for them. In the four-part episode "City of Stone" a pair of statues that looked like them were smashed by Demona, prompting fan outcry about killing them. WordOfGod says that the statues were two other identical people who were not this couple, and the couple has gained larger roles in the comics -- the woman being the DA representative on the Gargoyles Task Force, and the man bringing a doctor to help save the life of the mortally wounded Goliath. The couple in question even appeared, as teenagers, in another Disney action series, ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'', but only as a one time, not recurring (Creator/GregWeisman worked on both shows).

* The ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' series has several Marines who are inconsequential to the plot and can even be killed with no consequence, yet reappear plenty of times throughout the series. Of note is PFC. Chips Dubbo (recognisable due to his deep Australian accent), and Gunnery Sergeant Pete Stacker. Sergeant Johnson also fulfilled this role in the first game, but he became an AscendedExtra for the sequels.
