* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': In Episode 143, the gang get a surprise visit from [[spoiler:Ursula]]. WHat makes this so unexpected is that not only was she not mentioned at any other point in the episode, but this is only her second appearance on the show so far.

** The Hulk and the Grandmaster showing up as major characters in ''Film/ThorRagnarok''. ''Film/DoctorStrange'' makes a cameo early on before determining that Loki's presence is not a threat to Earth (this time).

* Music/TheLonelyIsland collaborates with a lot of artists, and some of them, like Music/TPain or Creator/JackBlack, are pretty understandable. Then you get to ones like Music/MichaelBolton, Music/LinkinPark, Music/{{Robyn}}, and, in ''Film/TheLEGOMovie'', Music/TeganAndSara.

* ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'' features appearances from Colossus, Angel Dust and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, all three of whom have close ties to the ''Comicbook/XMen'' franchise, but none of whom are connected to Deadpool in the comics. And besides Colossus, the two ladies are unexpected for being rather obscure mutants - Warhead in particular was only included because the writers [[AwesomeMcCoolName liked her codename]]. The LawyerFriendlyCameo by [[spoiler:HYDRA agent Bob, made without name-dropping HYDRA,]] could also feel unexpected to viewers who thought [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Marvel Studios]]' ownership of the organization he works for would prevent him from appearing in a Fox movie. Deadpool sure sounds surprised to see him.
* Among the characters in ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'', no one was expecting Commissioner Gordon (a vital element to Batman's lore, but not featured in ''Justice League'' stories due to the larger scale), Steppenwolf as the BigBad, and Deathstroke (since the plot involves an AlienInvasion).

Certainly nobody was expecting a member of the Green Lantern Corps appearing in the first fight against Steppenwolf years ago.

** ComicBook/SpiderMan in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', mostly due to the the rights problems compared Marvel and Sony.

to:

** Howard Stark and Sharon Carter make a cameo in the beginning of ''Film/AntMan'' at Pym's dismissal from [=SHIELD=]. While visiting a Stark Facility in upstate New York, Ant-Man clashes with Falcon when he realizes that it's been converted to the main Avengers facility post-''Ultron''. TheStinger is [[spoiler:a scene from ''Civil War'' showing Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson debating what to do with Bucky Barnes, who is trapped in a vice press. Tony Stark and [[EarlyBirdCameo the Sokovia Accords]] are given name drops]].
** ComicBook/SpiderMan in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', mostly due to the the rights problems compared Marvel and Sony. Thunderbolt Ross was also an unexpected addition, as it officially canonized ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' within the [=MCU=] (no mention had been made of the events of the film later than ''The Avengers'', when Banner mentioned that he "broke Harlem" the last time he visited New York).



** Aaron Davis, aka the Prowler, in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', since the film stars Peter Parker, and Davis is associated with [[ComicBook/MilesMorales a different Spider-Man]].
** The Hulk and the Grandmaster showing up as major characters in ''Film/ThorRagnarok''.

Spider-Man]]. Thor's magic belt Megingjörð, previously unmentioned, is given a name drop when Happy is loading up the final plane from Avengers Tower.
** The Hulk and the Grandmaster showing up as major characters in ''Film/ThorRagnarok''. ''Film/DoctorStrange'' makes a cameo early on before determining that Loki's presence is not a threat to Earth (this time).
** [[spoiler:Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier]] appears in TheStinger of ''Film/BlackPanther'', now bearing the moniker of "White Wolf", T'Challa's adopted brother in the comics.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/CaptainMarvel'' will include Clark Gregg, Samuel L Jackson, Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou, presumably reprising their roles as Agent Phil Coulson [[note]]last seen when he was [[DisneyDeath killed off]] in ''The Avengers'', only to be resurrected for ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''[[/note]], Director Nick Fury [[note]]last seen in ''Age of Ultron'' after faking his death in ''The Winter Soldier''[[/note]], and Ronan the Destroyer and Korath the Pursuer [[note]]both KilledOffForReal in ''Guardians Of The Galaxy''[[/note]], respectively. Coulson is especially remarkable, as Creator/KevinFeige had stated that crossovers between [=TV=] and film were becoming increasingly difficult; on the other hand, given that the film takes place in the 90s, any one of those characters could be around and kicking during the events of the film.

** Batman fights several members of his RoguesGallery that aren't well used outside of their original work, such as [[Series/{{Batman}} King Tut]], [[WesternAnimation/TheBatman the Kabuki Twins]], [[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns the Mutant Leader]], and a few {{Rogues Gallery Transplant}}s like Captain Boomerang.

The sheer amount and absurdity of some even leads the Joker to give a NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer while ticking them off in the opening scene.
** Although Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Cyborg, and Green Lantern were [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil seen in the Comic-Con trailer]], most of the rest at Superman's Justice League/Super Friends Party were not, including Martian Manhunter, Wonderdog, El Dorado, Hawkman ''and'' Hawkgirl, Apache Chief, Black Vulcan, Samurai, the Wonder Twins Jayna and Zan, and Gleek.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* Although most of the attractions at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks are either original properties (such as ''Ride/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' or ''Ride/TheHauntedMansion'') or based on a Disney property. However, there are some exceptions:
** The first ''Ride/StarTours'' opened at Disneyland in 1987, being the first ride to be based on a distinctly non-Disney property. Disney bought Creator/{{Lucasfilm}} in 2012, undoing this trope (at which point ''Star Tours'' had become a staple at Disneyland and Walt Disney World anyway), but for 25 years it remained as a non-Disney ride.
** The first ''Ride/TheTwilightZoneTowerOfTerror'' opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios (then Disney-Creator/{{MGM}} Studios) in 1994 to help bring more visitors the park. It opened in Disney's California Adventure to help with the same problem in 2004, and later in Disneyland Paris. Unlike Lucasfilm, the franchise was never bought from CBS, which means that they have to license it every year (which is why Tokyo's ''Tower Of Terror'' is not based on ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' - the series was never as popular in Japan as in the US and Europe), and also that it remains one of the only non-Disney attractions (the other being ''Journey to the Center of the Earth'' in Tokyo Disney Sea).
*** The California version of the ride has since become ''Ride/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyMissionBreakout'', which in and of itself is a bizarre choice. The film was a breakout hit in 2014, but it was by no means the most popular Marvel property, and an odd choice to base Disney's ''first'' ever Disney-Marvel attraction on (before the [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy film]], it would have been pushing it to call them a C- or D-list team). Many fans theorized that this was due to a dispute with Ride/UniversalStudios, who retained the theme-park rights for Marvel characters (''except'' the Guardians - it only specified the Avengers, Spider-Man, and the X-Men) within a radius around Universal Florida that included Walt Disney World, and that the renovation would eventually make it way to the other coast. However, other versions are unlikely to make the switch, as there are currently plans to build a ''Guardians of the Galaxy'' attraction in [=EPCOT=].
** After ''Star Tours'' opened, the opening of ''Ride/IndianaJonesAdventure'' in Disneyland in 1995 was a tad less surprising. It also marked a stark style change for Adventureland, from the bright cheeriness that marked Walt's True-Nature films to the grittiness and realism of the Indiana Jones films: the design of the boats on ''Ride/JungleCruise'' changed to match the themeing of the Temple of the Forbidden Eye next door, and four years later, the ''Film/SwissFamilyRobinson'' Treehouse became the ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' Treehouse. Like ''Film/StarWars'', Indiana Jones was included in the Lucasfilm purchase, and it was welcomed into the Disney family in 2012, by which time, the attraction had been replicated several times over the world, as well as other Indy-themed rides.
** WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Land at first seemed like an odd choice to be one of the focal points of Disney California Adventure's 2012 overhaul, given that the most recent ''Cars'' film, ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'', had been critically panned, and that the original ''Cars'' film is generally seen as one of Creator/{{Pixar}}'s weaker movies. Nonetheless, Cars Land was a [[SpotlightStealingSquad massive success]], and the E-ticket ride, ''Radiator Springs Racers'', regularly has one of the longest lines in either Disneyland or DCA (at time of writing, 4 PM on a Thursday in March, ''6'' years after the ride opened, it currently has a 120 minute long line).
