* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): While having humans travel from Shardworld to Shardworld is a known event, having [[spoiler:Nightblood, the TalkingWeapon from ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}]] do so is quite another thing.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has trainers and Pokemon appear in different places and roles than usual. One notable example is the appearance of Solidad during the Battle Dome Arc, given that she debuted many arcs later in canon and as a Pokemon Coordiantor, not trainer.

** As one of the most popular Pokemon in the S/M, many assumed Ash would get a Rockruff. He did, but no one was expecting he'd get Kukui's Rockruff.

* ''Literature/WarriorCats'':
** Lots of unexpected characters pop up in the ''[[Literature/WarriorCatsOmenOfTheStars Omen of the Stars]]'' finale ''The Last Hope'', such as Redtail, Raggedstar and Mosskit. But almost nobody was expecting Brambleberry's cameo appearance at the beginning where she is one of the first cats to ever successfully give Jayfeather a lecture.
** When ''[[Literature/WarriorCatsDawnOfTheClans Dawn of the Clans]]'', a {{prequel}} series dealing with the founding and early days of the five Clans was announced, lots of theories were made about appearances from the Clan Founders (Thunder, River Ripple, Wind Runner, Tall Shadow, and Clear Sky), original medicine cats (Cloudspots, Dapplepelt, Mothflight, and Pebbleheart), and a few other characters mentioned in the field guides (Gorsefur, Owleyes, Lightningtail, etc.). However, almost nobody predicted Graywing the Wise (a character whose sole mention in the series beforehand was being credited with creating a few [=WindClan=] battle strategies in ''Battles of the Clans'') showing up, let alone his role as the (initial) main character of the arc. To a lesser extent, few expected Half Moon and Lion's Roar to appear in the arc, but they ended up being supporting characters in ''The Sun Trail''.
** The ninth Super Edition. Usually Super Editions star major characters, and are always about leaders or medicine cats. The ninth Super Edition was revealed to be ''Hawkwing's Journey'', focusing on a cat nobody had ever heard of. It turned out later that he had previously appeared in a novella, ''Ravenpaw's Farewell'', as a [=SkyClan=] apprentice who shows up one time and speaks one word.

* [[Creator/PatrickRothfuss Viari's]] return in the second half of ''WebVideo/AcquisitionsIncorporated'' season 8 came as a huge surprise to everyone except himself and [[DungeonMaster Chris]]. Firstly, he was explicitly PutOnABus and replaced by a new intern in the first game of the season. Secondly, there have never been more than four players at an ''AI'' table before (in fact, said table is physically designed for four players)--much less two interns at once. Lastly, the mid-season recap [[RedHerring foreshadowed]] the return of ''Aeofel'', the series' original intern, making no mention of Viari at all.
* ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' occasionally brings in little known and unexpected characters to fight for their lives. Two of the more notable examples being [[ComicBook/BuckyOHareAndTheToadWars Bucky O'Hare]], coming from a fairly obscure comic and cartoon series from the 70's/90's and took on [[Franchise/{{Star Fox}} Fox McCloud]], and [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Yang Xiao Long]], who is from a web animation series running from 2013 which is growing in popularity but still fairly small and she took on [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tifa Lockhart]]. [[spoiler:Yang defeated her more popular opponent. Bucky wasn't so fortunate.]]
* The AbridgedSeries ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyTheMentallyAdvancedSeries'' shocked many fan by having [[spoiler: the much anticipated ''Discord KilledOffForReal before the events of show'']] and replaced with Breezen, an obscure one shot villain from Generation 1 of the show. [[note]] WordOfGod is that this was to both show his version of Celestia as more ruthless and efficient, by finishing him off a thousand years ago, instead of imprisoning him and because he feared all the hype for his version of Discord would lead to HypeBacklash either way.

* The addition of Franchise/SpiderMan to ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' might have caught some viewers by surprise, since he rarely makes guest appearances in other Marvel characters' cartoons. (The previous time he had a speaking role in someone else's show happened over 30 years earlier, in ComicBook/SpiderWoman's animated series.) Additionally, none of the previews or trailers for the second season showed him, at least not before the season began. It seemed even more unexpected for [[spoiler:Spidey to become a reserve Avenger]].

** One very surprising release was a character named Heatwave in the "Hero Mashers Line." Heatwave shares a name with a ''WesternAnimation/RescueBots'' character who was on shelves at the time, so the Hero Masher instead being directly based on an obscure, Collector's Club-only character was completely unexpected.
