* ''BreathOfFire II:'' Bleu/Deis. You must walk over a specific panel in a random desert with nothing else in it after reading a certain book. The book both unlocks the panel and tells you, if obtusely, which one it is.

* In ''{{Arcanum}}'', while not many characters are hidden per se, most people will never know that certain [=NPCs=] are can actually be recruited, mainly because some require special dialogue options and/or quests to be accomplished before they even consider joining.

Added DiffLines:

* There are two in ''VideoGame/{{Lunarosse}}''. One is Izumi, a scythe-wielder who can only be recruited in a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind sidequest. The other is [[spoiler:Princess Zelda]], who you can't recruit until just before the second-to-last dungeon even if you've already cleared the dungeon she's in before then, but already has her strongest weapon and excellent stats.

* In ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'', Drumstick: To unlock him as a playable character, you must get all four Grand Prix trophies then run over the frog with the rooster crest on it's head. In the DS version, it's a slightly different task: you must use your stylus to flip one of the frogs up into the pond above, then run it over. And T.T. to unlock him, you must race his ghost in time trial mode on every track (including the bonus space world), and beat him.[[/folder]]

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ: The Legacy of Goku 2'', there are 5 podiums by the fountain in Capsule Corp. Upon completing the Cell Games, you get one statue, which appears on the middle podium. As for the other 4 statues, they are hidden behind 4 barriers, one for each playable character except Goku, that require the character to be [[{{Cap}} level 50]] before they can access the area behind them. A statue is placed behind each of these barriers, and upon collecting all 5, you unlock [[FakeUltimateHero Hercule]] as a playable character.

* The Cheer Girls and the Divas in ''Ouendan'' and ''EliteBeatAgents'' aren't particularly secret; they have their own bios in the manuals and everything, they're just really, really hard to unlock.

* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'s'' "Devil" was unlocked by ''leaving the game on for ''30 hours''. Alternatively, one could get a perfect score in the game of ''Galaga'' that replaced a standard LoadingScreen at the very beginning of the game.

* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' had five playable soldiers, one for each class, unlocked through various means: one for beating the game (Mussad), two for having a specific character get KO'd during a mission (Lynn and Emile), one for getting enough in-game medals (Audrey), and one for having a large amount of unspent funds (Knute).
** ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII'' also features unlockable characters, one of which ([[spoiler:the late]] Isara Gunther) requires either a code, or transferring save data from the original PS3 game onto a PSP.



* Stefan in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]''. The only way to recruit him (or to even know that he exists ''at all'' for that matter) is to go way off to a corner of the map in one mission that's far removed from your objective, and then stand on one ''precise'' spot with a laguz character. Stefan then walks up and forcibly joins your party ([[GameBreaker and boy is he worth it]].)


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' has various characters join during the post-game "Creature Campaign" while exploring the bonus dungeons or battling monsters on the field, including some that had died during the main plot.

* 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.
