* In the ''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}'' games, there are a few secret Pokémon in every game that can only be caught via real life events or cheating.(or cheating, since for older games those events have long since passed). Fortunately, none of these are required to complete the Pokédex (though you may not be happy with having obvious gaps in it). In recent times, these have been known as "Mythical Pokémon", with new ones added every generation:



** Generation IV added [[MakingASplash Manaphy]] (and to some degree its offspring Phione), [[BadDreams Darkrai]], [[GreenThumb Shaymin]] and [[CrystalDragonJesus Arceus]]. Then again, the last of those being the equivalent of God in the Pokémon universe kinda justifies his status as an event exclusive.

Since ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' were released before the Gen II remakes, Lugia and Ho-Oh aren't needed to complete the Dex in them.

** Generation VII includes [[ArtificialHuman Magearna]], obtained via a special QR code.

* ''VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureHeritageForTheFuture'''s secret roster depends on the version. The initial release (dubbed ''[=JoJo's=] Venture'' in English) makes the player beat the game to unlock [[BigBad DIO]]; the updated version (in English, simply titled ''[=JoJo's=] Bizarre Adventure'') instead had six characters that (in the original arcade, at least) could only be activated via a [[ClassicCheatCode code]] in the ''service menu.''

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'': The spin-off fighting games have a few of them:
** ''Immaterial And Missing Power'' has [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Remilia Scarlet]] and [[CuteGhostGirl Yuyuko Saigyouji]], who can be unlocked when you find them and defeat them in story mode; and, provided you haven't used any continues, you can also unlock SubBoss [[RealityWarper Yukari Yakumo]] and FinalBoss [[DrunkenMaster Suika Ibuki]]. 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 ''Scarlet Weather Rhapsody'', you can unlock the bosses [[ShockAndAwe Iku Nagae]] and Tenshi Hinanawi if you find them and defeat them in the story mode.
* 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.

* 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.
