* This happens to Barbara Gordon so much that's it's a RunningGag.
** Katarina Armstrong, the second Spy Smasher introduced late into the first volume of ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'', was a college roommate and rival of Barbara's. She had never been referred to before that.
** Munira Khairuddin, AKA Obscura, debuted more than halfway through Barbara's [[ComicBook/Batgirl2011 New 52 series]] and was ''also'' established as a former college classmate and rival, despite never having been mentioned prior.
** Frankie Charles, who made her first appearance in the Burnside era of ''ComicBook/Batgirl2011'', had been an acquaintance Babs knew from her time in physiotherapy.
** In the first issue of ''ComicBook/BatgirlRebirth'', Barbara happens to run into a man named Kai, a childhood friend of hers who, once again, had not been seen or referred to prior.

* One of the prequels to ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' introduces Belmakor and Belsamber, two previously-unmentioned disciples of Aldur who both committed suicide shortly after the War of the Gods. Their deaths help explain how Mallorea ended up being such a huge blindspot for Aldur's disciples, as Belmakor and Belsambar would have been sent to gather reconnaissance in that region if they'd lived.



* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' introduces us to Agent Eric Koenig (played by Patton Oswalt) who shortly after his introduction is [[spoiler:murdered by Ward]]. But! He has a twin brother, Billy, also a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, who is introduced later on, and explicitly described as his ''twin''. In the second season, it turns out there's a ''third'' Koenig brother, Sam, who is also identical to Billy and Eric, and also a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Apparently they're actually triplets. Despite Billy referring to himself as Eric's ''twin''. You'd think having two brothers who also work for S.H.I.E.L.D. and happen to ''look just like you'' would be something worth mentioning, but even if not, at the very least you'd think that Billy would have explained "Yeah, Eric's my brother. We're triplets, actually. Our other brother, Sam, is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent as well." But no, he just says that he and Eric were twins, and Sam isn't even mentioned until he's introduced. It's implied that the Koenig's are either clones or Life Model Decoys, in which case the number of "brothers" may be an enforced secret.

** The God of Destruction Beerus from the movie ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of Gods]]'' is a semi-example. One of the strongest beings in the entire universe (in fact, the only one stronger is his attendant Whis), no one ever mentioned him until the movie, even though King Kai, the Kaioshins, Freeza, and Vegeta all knew about him, yet in the series they named many weaker people as "the strongest in the universe".

Although this could also be explained by the fact that they were referring to the strongest "people". Beerus is a God and just like all the Kais, is not factored into mortal power rankings.

* Also see ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', the episode Total Rickall has this theme throughout the episode with many characters, particularly inserting the character Mr. PoopyButthole even into the opening sequences, and claiming him to be not just imaginary.
'''Monster with spike balls for hands''': Hi, I'm Spikeballs. I'm usually in the back.



* In ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', the episode "Total Rickall" has the family become infested by alien parasites that breeds via fake memories and take the form of wacky characters. This starts off with CousinOliver parodies such as Uncle Steve and Cousin Nicky and eventually spirals into the house being filled with all sorts of fantastical characters. Most prominent is Mr. Poopy Butthole, who is not only there from the start, but is also edited into the intro similar to Larry as pictured above. Eventually they realize that the parasites can only create happy memories and that the real ones are the people they have horrible memories of. [[spoiler:Mr. Poopy Butthole turns out to be real, but gets mistaken for a parasite and shot because he apparently never wronged anyone in any way. He survives, but [[PutOnABus never appears again]] [[TheBusCameBack until the season finale's post-credits scene.]]]]

** Lampshaded example when Dr. Eggman meets a leader of one of his armies known as Axel the Water Buffalo. He's quick to say he recognizes him and recruits him in trying to get to the Death Egg II. Orbot's quick to point out that they've never seen him before and Eggman has already figured that out - he admits that [[{{Understatement}} he was a bit too hasty in stopping Super Sonic's Chaos Control]] and realizes that a lot of Mobius has been altered..
