It is also possible to unlock [[AnimeChineseGirl Hong Meiling]] after installing a special patch, and completing the story mode at least once with any character.

* In ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'' ''Act Cadenza Version B'', you can unlock Neko-Arc Chaos (A SuperDeformed version of Nrvnqsr Chaos) after completing the arcade mode at least once with any character; he also has a special arcade route where the FinalBoss is a giant version of him called Neko Chaos Black G666, created by Kohaku of all people. However, although the giant Neko does not become playable, you can unlock "Giant Mode" that allows you to challenge him with any character.

A character that the casual player may never see. Not due to some strange invisibility, or even things that he should know but are AllThereInTheManual. Like any other form of [[UnlockableContent unlockable content]], getting the SecretCharacter is not required to finish the game.

A type of [[UnlockableContent unlockable content]]. This is a character that the casual player players may never see. Not due to some strange invisibility, or even things that he should know but are AllThereInTheManual.because finding them requires some sort of specific action on their part. Like any other form of [[UnlockableContent unlockable content]], getting the SecretCharacter is not required to finish the game.

* The first ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' game lets you play as [[spoiler:Sylvia, Alastor, Captain Blue]] and even [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante]]]] (who, unfortunately, is only unlockable in the [=PlayStation 2=] version of the game) by beating the game's multiple difficulty levels. The PS2 version also lets you use all the characters (including the PS2-exclusive one) with a button code.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Yuffie appeared as a random battle, and the player must select certain dialogue options to get her to join. The game was merciful, though, in that she would appear later [[NPCAmnesia until the player gets it right]] (justified as she stole from you each time you got the sequence wrong). Also Vincent, who involved solving puzzles in a haunted house. After finally finishing the puzzles, you has to fight a boss. The boss was ''very'' tough if you didn't know what you were doing, ''and'' there's still little indication on what you're supposed to do to actually ''recruit'' Vincent.

* There are a few secret characters in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series. The SuperMode versions might count, but there's also Metal Sonic in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure DX'', who is available after getting all 130 emblems (though he's only available in trial mode and can't do Sky Chase), as well as Amy in ''[[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy Sonic Advance 2]]'' after beating the game with all the Chaos Emeralds with the previous 4 characters.

* "Secret Companion" is the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' fandom's established term for a particular WalkingSpoiler companion who may join the Warden's party in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' under very specific circumstances--namely, [[spoiler:Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir, the "Bad" of TheGoodTheBadAndTheEvil ensemble of the game]]. In addition, there are some less spoiler-y secret {{Guest Star Party Member}}s in that game, such as [[TheArchmage First Enchanter]] Irving (who only joins if you forgot to bring a mage to the resolution of "The Arl of Redcliffe" quest) and the nameless Tower Guard, Soldier, and Circle Mage, some of whom may join you depending on your [[MultipleGameOpenings Origin]] during "The Tower of Ishal" to balance out your party.
