* ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'': The ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' character on which Dr. Emil Lang was based on was just an unnamed chief engineer in the original Japanese version. The character design already had cool looking all black eyes. ''Robotech'' went further gave Dr. Lang a memorable German accent (courtesy of actor Greg Snegoff). All this for a character that had only appeared in two episodes with three minutes total of screen time. He would become a major supporting character in the aborted ''Sentinels'' production and the rest of the ExpandedUniverse.

Added DiffLines:

* Considering how popular DIO's [[DeathFromAbove Road Roller]] attack and FlechetteStorm are among the ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' fandom and video games, you'd hardly believe that they were each used exactly ''once'' in the entire series, during the same fight with Jotaro. Then again, we '''are''' talking about [[MagnificentBastard D]][[LargeHam I]][[CrazyAwesome O]].

* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Hiro appeared in a single special chapter (and a single anime episode) and still remains incredibly memorable, probably for being the only one shown to be able to cope with Excalibur.
** Excalibur itself has a tendency to do this, especially in the Wrath Chapter of Eibon.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Hiro appeared in a single special chapter (and a single anime episode) and still remains incredibly memorable, so much he's present in both official popularity polls, probably for being the only one meister shown to be able to cope with Excalibur.

* [[FanNickname Bruce Ironstaunch]] from ''GurrenLagann''. He's just some nameless member of a cheering crowd who makes a BicepPolishingGesture while Rossiu is announcing that [[spoiler: Simon will be executed]]. Since that gesture means "up yours" elsewhere, Western fans saw him as the one good man standing up for the heroes, and he became a [[MemeticMutation legend]].

* If this trope can be played negatively, [=MaloMyotismon=] would qualify (putting aside his previous incarnations as Myotismon and [=VenomMyotismon=]). He only appeared during the last two episodes of [[{{Digimon}} Digimon's]] second season, and is remembered as one of the ''suckiest'' villains ever in an anime series.

* Despite being heavily featured in promotional material for ''Film/Naruto7TheLast'', [[spoiler:Sasuke]] only appears twice in the actual movie, and is especially epic in his second appearance, because it involves his only dialogue.

* [[spoiler:[[MadScientist Shou Tucker]]]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is a rather strange example. Even though he's only in one chapter before [[spoiler:he's killed off by Scar,]] he is one of the first truly intimidating antagonist encountered by the Elric brothers, and still stands out as one of the series' most horrific villains.

It's very shocking to some fans that the character widely regarded as the most despicable in the history of anime shows up near the beginning of the series, and not very long at all.
