** ''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.

* The Xbox Live Arcade/PSN version of ''VideoGame/SonicCD'' allows you to play as Tails after you beat the game once.
* The first ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' game lets you play as [[spoiler:Sylvia, Alastor, Captain Blue]] and even [[spoiler: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.

* "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.
