* One of they playable characters in ''Return of Heracles'' is named Palaemon. Familiarity with Greek myth, however, will tell you long before the game does that the seemingly weak man initially trapped with two serpents is actually the titular Heracles as an infant, and he receives his more familiar alias as you progress.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': When Bronn is first introduced, he looks like just another sellsword. The camera doesn't linger on him very much, and he doesn't even have any features or costumes to distinguish him from a commoner other than a dry wit. Then he offers to be Tyrion's champion at the Eyrie, and proves to be more than just a mook.

* ''[[Series/DoctorWho'': In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E1DeepBreath Deep Breath]]", companion Clara is seemingly abandoned in the bowels of a spaceship by a manic and unreliable Doctor undergoing regeneration trauma. She is repeatedly menaced by one particular clockwork android wearing a skinned face resembling the previous actor to play the part of the Doctor, until the suspension has been milked dry, at which point the "android" rips its face off to reveal the new Doctor, with his wits about him for once.

* In OnePiece, [[WorldsStrongestMan Whitebeard]] is first introduced during a scene in which a new recruit of fellow Yonko Shanks boards his ship to discuss a meeting between the two. The first crew member to speak to the recruit ([[SmallNameBigEgo who had been bragging about his fame]]) is a lazy-looking blonde man who mentions that he's never heard of the recruit before. This crew member only has the one line, and is even drawn in a generic, sloppy way in the anime adaptation (complete with incorrect color palette). Several hundred chapters later, and the crew member is revealed to be Marco "[[RedBaron The Phoenix]]", Whitebeard's first mate, and a pirate strong enough to fight two admirals to a standstill!
