** The pirate queen Isabella's only major scene happens when you visit Denerim's brothel for the first time. 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 [[BiTheWay regardless of your gender]], which can become a three- or ''four''some depending on your companions. Her character was so popular (mostly due to players asking how to get the foursome or [[GirlOnGirlIsHot all-girl threesome]]), that she was brought back for ''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.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', Movran the Under, the Avvar chief who's response to the death of his son is to throw live goats at Skyhold (as in the building itself). He appears only while the player decides his punishment, [[LargeHam hamming it up]] the whole time.
** 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 them are 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.

* The Green Biker Dude from the ''VideoGame/MegaManX2'' intro. On screen for barely 5 seconds, and he's still one of the most memorable ''X'' series characters.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'''s TroubledProduction means many characters in the game were designed for prominent roles in earlier drafts and then relegated over many rewrites to minor parts. A good, early example is Loqi, who has a striking design and shows up in a fabulous IncomingHam scene, but is only fought while hidden in a generic mech enemy that unceremoniously explodes.

* Wael from ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'', the [[BlueAndOrangeMorality extremely strange]] god of secrets. In the endgame, they may [[DarkHorseVictory come out of nowhere]] try to convince the Watcher to [[spoiler:cast the souls Woedica stole into parts unknown]]. And what reason do they give for doing this? [[spoiler:They explicitly state it's for no logical or rational reason whatsoever, [[ItAmusedMe just because]]]]. Despite all this, however, the way they offer it and the context alike make it a strangely convincing idea many consider, and a fair number go through with.

* Lancer in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. He is the first enemy encountered in the game's introduction and does little but fight with Archer and all but kill Shirou, after which he spends most of the time in the background . He only gets a bit of spotlight [[spoiler:in Unlimited Blade Works when he helps Rin and Shirou by keeping Archer occupied, and later rescues Rin by killing Kotomine and scaring off Shinji while ''missing his heart''. Oh, and inadvertently saving Shirou post-humously by making Gilgamesh sooty]]. Outside of that he's basically the poster boy for TheWorfEffect, [[spoiler:being killed off by the TheDragon in the other two routes.]] Yet he's almost as [[{{Badass}} GAR]] as Archer for the fandom.

* 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]].

** 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.
