* Angel, 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 two more episodes, and they were right to do so, as leaving her on the [[PutOnABusToHell bus to Hell]] she was put on at the end of her first episode would've [[BrokenAesop broken the main theme of the series]] into tiny little pieces.

* ''Anime/GoLion'' had an odd case of this. Shirogane's death in ''Go Lion'' was {{bowdlerized}} to [[DubNameChange Sven]] being badly injured in the American version. Later on, outcry from Japanese fans of the character prompted the makers of ''Go Lion'' to bring in Shirogane's identical twin for a few episodes. In ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'', Sven had simply finished healing up.

* [[spoiler:Agent Coulson]] in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' got this. The fans started a project called [[spoiler:Coulson Lives]] in denial of his death, insisting that he was simply ''too awesome to die''. They got his actor on board, and eventually, he really did come back ''[[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD in his own TV show]]''.

* 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.

** 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 BrotherChuck treatment by the New52 in 2011, she eventually returned to the comics in 2014.

* Barnabas Collins from ''Series/DarkShadows'' was brought in only as a temporary villain to attempt a revival of the show's ratings. He became incredibly popular with fans, went from {{Jerkass}} to {{Badass}} (or sometimes {{Woobie}} or even JerkassWoobie) and is essentially now the face of all permutations of the franchise.
