** 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.

* 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 [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]]. 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 Great Mighty Poo from ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay''. The living definition of the ultimate ToiletHumor.

* 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.

* 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]].
** Note that 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.

* Creator/PatrickStewart in The ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''. Apart from his opening cutscene voiceover, he had maybe 10 minutes of screen time as the Emperor before being killed. Creator/SeanBean gets about 30.
** It's also probably worth noting that the only reason there are so few other voice actors in the game is because they blew an inordinate amount of their budget to get him for that one role.

* There's exactly one playable Pandaren in the whole ''Warcraft'' series (so far), he's an optional character in a campaign that you don't even need to play in a regular playtrough, he became so popular that Blizzard have been teasing WoW players with making Pandaren a playable race since the early stages, they will finally get their own expansion (they included the race's name in the title of the expansion). Oh, and the character wasn't even planed to be included in the game, one of the designers made a concept artwork as an april's fool joke. And said character ends up getting included in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''
