* 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.

** No one had expected Robin to join the Straw Hats. Granted, she had helped Luffy and betrayed Crocodile but it made her more of a wild card and after the battle, she had disappeared. Then just as the crew leaves Alabasta, Robin appears out of nowhere and requests to Luffy to join which he nonchalantly agrees. Added to that is that throughout the entire Baroque Works arc, Vivi had been played up as the potential next member of the Straw Hats, until she turned down the offer to stay behind and rebuild Alabasta right before Robin joined.
** Most people wrote Bellamy out as dead, and it's not hard to see why, seeing as his boss ''is'' Doflamingo and he went and pissed the guy off by losing to Luffy. Come chapter 704, not only is he still alive and still under Doflamingo's employment, [[spoiler:he's also a participant in the tournament for the Mera Mera no Mi.]] Also, the appearance of [[spoiler:Jesus Burgess]] was likewise something nobody could have seen coming. Later on, [[spoiler: the [[DeathByOriginStory supposedly long-dead]] ''Sabo'']] has shown up.

** The Best Wishes series has Clair from ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' showing up. Sure she and the majority of the Generation I-IV Gym Leaders show up at the Pokémon World Tournament in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', but that's more an optional encounter.

** The Mewtwo from ''[[Anime/PokemonGenesectAndTheLegendAwakened Genesect and the Legend Awakened]]'' is something of a double whammy - few were expecting Mewtwo to return, but ''no one'' was expecting it to be a different individual altogether, due to the backstory (and the logistics thereof) of the first one. To quite a lot of fans, this was ''far'' from a pleasant surprise as a result.
** Clement's fourth Pokémon is Luxio - something no one saw coming. First off, it's a 'Mon from a generation not being actively promoted, and secondly, it's not even in the Kalos Dex (all three of them!).
** Alain's full team reveal was also a case of this: his team is made up mostly of menacing looking, tough looking Pokemon like Tyranitar and Bisharp... and a Male Unfeazant.

* ''Anime/Danganronpa3'' has Chiaki Nanami show up as one of the main characters, catching many off-guard seeing as in [[VideoGame/SuperDanganRonpa2 the second game]] [[spoiler:she was an AI who wasn't even hinted at being a real person]].

** A later Rebirth era event ComicBook/JusticeLeagueVsSuicideSquad, has this to a lesser extent. While no where near as unexpected as Manhattan, the appearance of Legion Lillian Emerald Empress was rather unexpected, given that she is not one prone to being the problem of 20/21st century heroes in their home eras.
* ''ComicBook/PathfinderWorldscape'' is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover event featuring several properties licensed by [[Creator/DynamiteComics Dynamite Entertainment]] yet two characters from the public domain characters with no relation to these properties will play a big part in the story: Fantomah and Thun'Da, both of which are extremely obscure comic book characters from the 40s and 50s respectively that few people would be aware of, let alone expect it to be feature in a event like this.

* In ''FanFic/HorseshoesAndHandGrenades'', outside the {{Original Character}}s, all characters introduced are from Kamen Rider series. Hence it comes to a surprise when [[Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger Yumeria Moegi]] appears in ''A Month of Sundays'', having been fired and in search of a job.

Then chapter 6 has the [[spoiler:[[Anime/Macross7 Protodeviln]]]] show up just to wreck the ''Sigur Valens'', and chapter 7 has [[spoiler:[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Lynn Kaifun]]]] appear on Windermere and [[spoiler:talk king Gramia into a more peaceful policy that also repairs Windermere's economy]]. [[LampshadeHanging Roid actually wonders how the latter one happened]] ([[spoiler:Berger brought him there to have Kaifun talk Gramia into a new economic policy, [[PragmaticVillain as on the long term a relatively peaceful and economically powerful Windermere will give the Epsilon Foundation a much larger profit]]]]).

* Amonst the characters seen on ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction'' are Space Cabbie (an obscure Silver Age character who's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin), ComicBook/JohnConstantine (a traditonally very much unkid-friendly character prone to swearing, chain smoking, and screwing people over), ''[[ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders Outsiders]]'' foes the Nuclear Family, and Carmine Falcone (though time travel was involved in that one, but still he's a foe from Batman's [[ComicBook/BatmanYearOne in-universe]] [[ComicBook/TheLongHalloween early years]] and a normal mafia don, which is normally outside of the League's greater purview).

* ''Film/RogueOne'' is a direct {{prequel}} to ''Franchise/StarWars: Episode IV -- Film/ANewHope'', so it shouldn't come as a shock that Grand Moff Tarkin, Darth Vader, [[spoiler: Princess Leia]] and [[spoiler: R2-D2 and C-3PO]] all make brief cameos. But absolutely '''no one''' expected Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to run into [[spoiler: Doctor Evazan and Ponda Baba]] on Jedha. It's a very brief moment, but it's likely to catch most ''Star Wars'' fans off guard.

* 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 Deathstorke (since the plot involves an AlienInvasion).
