** Played straight with Stephanie Brown, the Spoiler, who had multiple fan groups dedicated to having her either honored or returned. Within a few years, she was back and eventually gained the Batgirl mantle and a solo series. After getting the [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome Brother Chuck]] treatment by the New52 in 2011, she eventually returned to the comics in 2014.

* Princess Luna in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' was originally only to last to the end of the pilot and [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome never be seen again]], hence her absence from the rest of Season 1. For the next year, fans took a massive interest in the younger princess, and she finally returned in Season 2.

For the next year, fans took a massive interest in the younger princess, and she finally returned in Season 2. She has ironically gone on to get ''far'' more screen time than her elder sister, as fans would have to wait all the way through most of Season 7, as well as several more episodes starring Princess Luna, before Princess Celestia would get to share the spotlight with Luna and Starlight Glimmer.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' had two straight cases of this and an inversion. During the sixth season, JJ is forced to take a promotion at the Pentagon to make her boss look better, and is written out of the series as a main character, only making a few guest appearances, while a new BAU member, Ashley Seaver, was introduced to take her place. Later in the same season, Emily Prentiss was given an arc revolving around a backstory and ArchEnemy that, until then, was not hinted to exist at all; this arc ended with her faking her death and going into hiding, also being written out of the show. These were both cases of ExecutiveMeddling done by the studio rather than the writers themselves: in order to budget the spinoff series ''Suspect Behavior'', actress AJ Cook (JJ) was dismissed at the beginning of the season, and then Paget Brewster (Prentiss) had her number of episodes shortened, with Rachel Nichols (Seaver) serving as a cheaper replacement due to being new to the show. However, the studio received a staggering number of complaints from the fans about this, and as a result, once Season 7 began (and ''Suspect Behavior'' failed after one season), JJ and Prentiss were both brought back, and Seaver (who was a huge case of ReplacementScrappy for JJ) was written out.

* In the second season, Camille "Cam" Saroyan, Bones's and the squints' new boss at the Jefferson, was poisoned by SerialKiller Howard Epps. She was originally intended to die from the poison, but the fans and showrunners alike loved her, so she survived the incident and went on to remain a main character for the rest of the 12-season series.

* Angel (Experiment 624), a character from ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', was only intended to be a one episode character. However, once the executives realized she was one of the most popular characters, they brought her back for the last episode and gave her a small scene of her kicking Leroy clone patookie in the GrandFinale ''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch''. She even became a major character of the franchise thanks to [[Anime/{{Stitch}} the succeeding anime]]. Somewhat doubles as an AuthorsSavingThrow, as her episode put the character on a [[PutOnABusToHell bus to Hell]], which goes completely against the [[BrokenAesop core theme of]] ''[[TrueCompanions 'ohana]]'' [[BrokenAesop that the]] ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' [[BrokenAesop franchise is built on]].

* Sega's ''VideoGame/{{Yakuza}}'' series was modestly successful in the west, but not enough that Sega put a lot of stock in the series outside of Japan. When the zombie-themed GaidenGame ''Dead Souls'' flopped, Sega appeared to pull the plug on ''Yakuza'' in the west, quietly taking down the English-language website and remaining suspiciously silent about the localization of ''Yakuza 5''. When Sony polled players on what game they wanted to see released most, ''Yakuza 5'' topped the list, so they localized ''5'' and released it as a digital title. Noticing the hype leading up to the release of ''5'', Sega announced that they would localize ''Yakuza 0'' and release it on-disc. With faith in the series outside of Japan restored, Sega also announced international releases of ''Yakuza Kiwami'' and ''Yakuza 6''.

* According to MishaCollins, his character Castiel from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' was only originally slated to appear in six episodes early on in season 4, before being killed off. But such was his popularity that he has remained a constant part of the show for the past five years, with Collins being promoted to series regular and developing as much of a devoted following within the fanbase as the show's actual lead actors.

* The end of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess]]'' has Midna return to the Twilight Realm and [[spoiler:break the mirror of Twilight so the portal can never be opened again]]. But Eiji Aonuma was surprised by the fans' love of her, and responded in an interview that if there is a sequel she may somehow come back. She eventually did came back, though only in [[VideoGame/HyruleWarriors non-canon]] [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros games]].

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic was originally [[spoiler: retired by being sent to [[WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee The Plot Hole]] to stablise the universe]] and IRL, allow creator Doug Walker to focus on other projects that he'd wanted to do for years. However WebVideo/DemoReel's reception was... [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement complicated]], good enough views (mostly from women and queer fans) to carry on but Doug admitted in the DVDCommentary that the site needed more money so he had to do reviews again. This has lead to plenty of BrokenBase, as Doug wasn't exactly thrilled with having to return to the Nostalgia Critic, and many fans feel that at times this shows.
