* Wentos the Travelling Salesman from ''SonicUnleashed''. Every once and a while you'll see him in a town (the places he visits are random) where he will sell you goods at randomly-generated prices. Sometimes you can buy a product from him at [[GameBreaker less than the selling price]]. So basically, you can buy something from him and then [[GoodBadBugs sell it back immediately for a profit]].

* Anton and Ricky are a pair of tourists who turn up all over the place in the ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'', which so far has taken place in three separate countries. They sometimes are the source of sidequests.

* An unnamed Travelling Salesman always shows up at each new city you need to go to in ''ValkyrieProfile 2'', including destroyed castles only accessible through deadly caverns full of monsters... even going so far as to show up in Asgard ahead of you. Though, admittedly, this turns out to be the dead spirit of the merchant's ancestor, he still carries the exact same inventory as the living version.

* ''ShiningForce'' contains a character named Boken who is apparently on a personal quest, which happens to take him to many of the same locations as you. He even has his own character sprite; oddly, though, he's never recruitable as a Force member, not even in the GBA remake.

* There are several of these in ''{{Okami}}''. There's Waka, who follows you through the entire game [[spoiler: including your fight with the Big Bad]], and is the most reasonable, because he has magic powers. In the last chapter, you have Oki, who manages to follow you [[spoiler:through a magic gateway to 100 years into the past]]. And in the first chapter, you have Susano, the [[FakeUltimateHero inept, stupid, useless fool]] who, despite being completely incompetent, manages to get past the puzzles it takes you hours to solve in a few minutes. How the hell ''did'' he get into [[spoiler:the Moon Cave]], anyway? [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Not that we're complaining, mind]].]]

* Elminster shows up many times throughout the BaldursGate series, though its not at all surprising given who he is.
** There's also an unexplained farmer called Lahl in the first game who keeps showing up (with the same dialogue) in different places from Nashkel to Beregost. He's even been spotted in two different copies in the same area, so apparently the game chooses to spawn him near you for some reason.

* The DragonAge games have two traveling dwarven merchants, Bodhan Feddic and his adopted son, Sandal. In the first game, they're actually tagging along with your party on purpose, reasoning that since you're tough and go lots of places, it's pretty safe to stick around wherever you are, and can always be found in your camp. Sandal even shows up during the main plot right before the final boss battle to give you one last chance to buy stuff from him and get buffs for your gear. Dragon Age II has them working for the main protagonist, Hawke, living in Hawke's manor starting from the second act of the game on.

* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' gives us Stephen, creator of the Demon Summoning Program in the first two games. While mainly existing to upgrade you in the first game, he takes on more and more plot-important roles starting in the second game, generally acting as the BigGood for the Neutral alignment. In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVFinal'', [[spoiler:he takes on his greatest role where he guides Nanashi to YHVH on the Peace and Anarchy routes, recognizing that Nanashi could kill YHVH. DLC lets you fight him, and it's also revealed that he's so powerful that every numbered protagonist needs to team up to fight him]].
