* Riordan, in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is something of one. His debut? He snaps the neck of the man keeping watch over him, whom you have distracted for about two seconds, and then introduces himself with a bow, seeming quite pleased to meet you, with a warm-yet-badass voice. He also reveals he knew Duncan, your mentor. Later, he gives you information and allows you to get some powerful items for free. [[TheStrategist After that, he shows he's not just another BadAss in a game full of badasses, but also knows how to keep his eye on the ball]]. The next time he appears, he makes TheReveal of why the Grey Wardens aren't just useful, but necessary. And then he gets possibly [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome the most amazing send-off of any character, minor or major, in any video game ever]].

** The pirate queen Isabela's only major scene happens when you visit Denerim's brothel for the first time, and she'll teach the Duelist specialization for Rogues if you beat her at a rigged game of cards...or if you have sex with her, which can become a three- or ''four''some depending on your companions. Her character was so popular (mostly due to players wondering how to get the foursome, or have an [[LesYay all-girl threesome]]), that she was brought back in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' as a full party member and possible love interest - as promiscuous, morally suspect, and far more pirate-y than ever, and a bottomless well of {{Double Entendre}}s and horrible puns.

She also returns in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' for the multiplayer mode, though she doesn't interact with the main story in any way.



** Also in ''Inquisition'', you get a MauveShirt treatment of several people in the [[BoisterousBruiser Iron]] [[HornedHumanoid Bull]]'s mercenary company, Bull's Chargers. They're seen again, but mostly as scene dressing in Bull's personal quest. The writers only got one scene to characterize the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits motley crew]], and by TheMaker they succeeded wildly.
*** Among an explosive happy dwarf, a city elf who is quite pleased that she is now paid to kill humans, a medic who never puts down his sword and explains to everyone how a poultice is supposed to be used, and a mute that everyone suspects is an exiled prince, the standout is the exiled Dalish elf who is [[ImplausibleDeniability quite insistent that she is an "archer", and totally not a mage]]. The glowing crystal on top of her "[[MagicStaff bow]]" is just an old elven aiming trick.

** To be fair, the two officers were rather... [[{{Jerkass}} unpersonable]], frequently taking potshots at Leon ([[{{Bishonen}} particularly his appearance]]), and then [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere hightailing it out of there (sans Leon, of course) the moment things started to get hairy]] ([[DeathByPragmatism fittingly enough, they meet a gruesome end at the hand of the Ganados]]). Plus, in Mike's defense, not only did he enact one of the greatest BigDamnHeroes moments in the series, [[FamousLastWords but he also]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPf4sW32zGw knew a good bar.]]

* The Goomba's Shoe from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' is one of, if not ''the'' most beloved power-up in the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series, despite the fact that it only appears in ONE level from ONE game of the entire [[LongRunner Mario franchise]]! That is, unless you buy certain e-Reader cards for ''Super Mario Advance 4''. Too bad [[NoExportForYou the U.S. and Europe never got them]]. It did get a reference in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'' with the [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Sockop Sockops]], a green pitcher-plant monster that Luigi gets to hop around in at one point.

** Saurfang was a minor NPC until he was made Supreme Commander of the Might of Kalimdor. His epic speech that rallied Horde and Alliance alike catapulted him into MemeticBadass territory, from which he has never returned.

* The fisherman from ''JakAndDaxterThePrecursorLegacy'' only appears briefly, but is memorable to fans of the game for his insanely creepy laugh, provided by none other than Franchise/{{Batman}} himself, Creator/KevinConroy.

* Creator/JohnCleese appears as an NPC in a single quest in ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire''. With a name like [[AwesomeMcCoolName Sir Roderick Ponce Von Fontlebottom]] the MagnificentBastard, and being voiced by ''John freaking Cleese'', it's not surprising that he's easily one of the most memorable characters in the game.
** Also, in his first appearance he BLASTS A ENEMY FIGHTER WHEN THIS WAS PREPARING TO FIGHT HIM.
** And if you beat him you can claim his musket as a reward. And run around through fantasy Imperial China blasting people with a musket.

* On a similar note, Creator/LiamNeeson lends his voice talent to the main character's father in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. Although most of the main quest centers around your father, he only appears in the very beginning of the game and for a brief period in the third act. Tragic, really.
