** Maya Fey finally returns in ''[[VisualNovel/GyakutenSaiban6 Ace Attorney 6]]'' after being absent since ''Trials & Tribulations''. And we mean ACTUALLY returns, not just appearing [[VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney in a]] [[VideoGame/ProjectXZone crossover]]. To a lesser extant, Ema Skye returns as well after skipping ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]''.

* In the ''[[Manga/AhMyGoddess Oh My Goddess!]]'' manga, a lot of characters from Nekomi Tech, such as Megumi, Sora, Tamiya, Otaki, and Aoshima, were PutOnABus, and have so far appeared only once since Volume 20, which is around the time Keiichi and Belldandy graduated. It may have been unintentional, due to the fact that the series itself [[EndingFatigue slowed down considerably after Volume 16 or so]]. Also, Sayoko, the series' first HarmlessVillain (there are two others, who appeared in subsequent chapters) [[PutOnABus has not reappeared since Volume 15]].

* ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' brought back most of the supporting cast (Big, Omega, Jet, and Chip have hidden trophies depicting them, but are otherwise still MIA) from the mid-2000's era, who had been absent from ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' and ''VideoGame/SonicColors''[[note]]Except for the DS version[[/note]] due to Sonic Team's attempts to undo the series' LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters problem.

* ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' brought back several characters that hadn't made an appearance in a mainstream console PlatformGame in a while; ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' and ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' made a point of only including side characters that contributed to the plot, the latter only having Tails.
** Also, figurines of Jet, Omega, Big, and Chip, and posters of the long absent [[VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix Mighty]], [[VideoGame/SegaSonicTheHedgehog Ray]], [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogTripleTrouble Fang]] , [[VideoGame/SonicTheFighters Bean, Bark]], [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Tikal]], and [[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Marine]] appeared on posters in City Escape.
** A more egregious example was the Chaotix' unexpected return in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', having been previously featured in [[VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix only one game]] that had come out almost a decade ago.[[note]]Although Espio had appeared in ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters'' in 1996 as well[[/note]]

** ''VideoGame/SonicRunners'' saw the return of [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Tikal]] and [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Mephiles the Dark]], the former having not made a physical appearance since ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2's'' battle mode, and the latter having never reappeared since his debut game at all[[note]]Outside of a blink-and-you'll-miss it screenshot of him during the credits of ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''[[/note]]. [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Chaos, an orca whale, the Tornado 2,]] [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 King Boom Boo, a Chao walker,]] [[VideoGame/SonicHeroes a Gold Cameron,]] [[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Erazor Djinn, Shahra, Caliburn, Merlina, King Arthur's Ghost, the Dark Queen,]] [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Chip, some Gaia minions,]] and [[VideoGame/SonicColors the Mother Wisp]] all reappear as Buddy characters after a long absence from the series as well.



* Many newer ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' games have had a habit of bringing back old characters that were either one-offs or abandoned as the series evolved:
** Blocky, a mini-boss from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2'' and ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'', finally reappeared in ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' with an updated design. RecurringBoss Kracko also reappeared in the same game after being mysteriously absent from ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand''.
** The Kirby Fighters sub-game from ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' brought back Lololo and Lalala, Rick, Coo, Kine, the factory robots from ''Kirby 64'', and Ghost Kirby.
** After not making an appearance since ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'', the Meta-Knights (Axe Knight, Mace Knight, Trident Knight, and Javelin Knight) reappear in ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' as part of Meta Knight's special move.



** Several references to ''VideoGame/MarioPaint'', including the Dog, Mr. Eraser, Robot, and even the Gnat Attack minigame.

* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'': The Wizards of Apartment 13B story arc ''loves'' this trope. So far, Mason, Gorog and other Wizards who've played large parts in certain episodes come back, and in the final episode, reaveled thanks to a commercial on Disney Channel, Juilet comes back, although it may or may not be her, since it is Gorog they're dealing with here.

* After years of merely being alluded to, [[spoiler: YHVH ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVFinal'' brings back many characters that haven't been seen in over a decade:
** [[spoiler:YHVH hasn't had a prominent role in a game since ''II''. He
finally makes returns as a TRUE comeback Final Boss in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVFinal''!]]this game]].
** [[spoiler:The penultimate boss of the game is Satan, who also hasn't been seen in the main series since ''II'']].

* In ''Manga/{{Beyblade}}'', the teams from season 1 never appeared in season 2, but they came back in season 3. However, some of the bladers from season 1 never appeared in season 3, Team WHO (the Dark Bladers) never came back, and the Majestics were kicked out by the Barthez Battailions before the beginning of the World Championship. It also didn't help that most members of all returned teams are DemotedToExtra anyway.
** While the teams from season 1 are back, the teams from season 2 disappeared.
