* Johnny Sasaki of ''Franchise/MetalGear'' finally gets some luck in ''Guns of the Patriots''. [[spoiler: He gets cured of his bowel problems, stars in his own CrowningMomentOfAwesome, and then marries his commanding officer/long-time crush Meryl in the ending of the game.]]
* After all the abuse he suffers through in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'', Almaz ends up getting what he wants. [[spoiler:He marries Sapphire in the post credits epilogue of the normal ending.]]

* [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Luigi]], Nintendo's poster boy for ButtMonkey, got thrown a bone by ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''. He ends up as one of the four characters who save the rest of the heroes of the overworld. Granted, it's after a scene where he's scared of [[TheGoomba Waddle Dees]] and gets sneak-attacked by Dedede, but the clumsy little plumber helps Dedede save ''everyone''.

** In the sequel to ''VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero'', RecurringExtra Asagi finally gets a starring role in the extra content of the game. It's called Asagi Wars, where her main opponents are- of course -alternate versions of herself.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', [[TheWoobie Noel Vermillion]] has nothing but sad endings. Except that one ending involving her getting enchanted with Litchi Faye Ling's cute panda hairpin and pins on it happily. It's the closest thing to 'happy ending' she can get. The true endings also improve things for her somewhat (although the second game is still somewhat bittersweet despite the fact that she's [[spoiler: been convinced she's a person despite her ArtificialHuman status and never having been in the timeline before and hanging around with her best friend]] since [[spoiler: her other best friend has undergone a HeelFaceTurn and wants to kill her.]]

* A ''very'' minor (but memorable) character gets one in the Pokémon franchise. In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', there is a seasonal FerrisWheelDateMoment with a Hiker-class Trainer if the PlayerCharacter is male that involves some very [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar suggestive]] dialogue -- but since it's ''Pokémon'', the man is middle-aged, and the main character is a ''teenage boy'', nothing comes of it. ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' are direct sequels that take place two years later, and if the PlayerCharacter is female, she can meet with the Hiker in the same place, where he'll mourn a lost love. In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', a worker will mention offhand that he has a Hiker friend who loves Ferris wheels, and that the man finally found love.

Added DiffLines:

* Pierce Washington of the ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' series usually plays ButtMonkey to the other Saints, with the Boss constantly disregarding his [[ComplexityAddiction overly complex plans]] in favour of the much quicker (and much more fun) method of just barging in and shooting everybody between him/her and his/her objective. In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', his loyalty mission involves the Boss actually letting him do one of his plans for once.
** ''VideoGame/AgentsOfMayhem'' takes place in the AlternateTimeline created by ''VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell'''s CosmicRetcon ending. In this timeline, the Saints do not exist and therefore the man/woman who would become the Boss never got involved in crime. Instead, Pierce is known as "Kingpin", and is the equivalent of both the Boss ''and'' Benjamin King. After succeeding King as leader of the Vice Kings, Pierce united the Vice Kings, Westside Rollers, and Los Carnales under one banner through peaceful negotiations.

** Reptile, meanwhile, is finally given a break in ''X'' after multiple games featured him getting screwed over by his masters. His new boss, Khotal Khan, is a NobleDemon who values and greatly respects Reptile for his loyalty and sense of duty.

** As a Meta example, Raichu was considered TheArtifact as soon as Pikachu became a BreakoutCharacter, with Pikachu getting all kinds of event-exclusive moves, formes, and playing a major role in most Pokémon media. Raichu, by contrast, got nothing new added to it, only shows up once every so often in the anime, and is almost never marketed anymore, to the point the fandom started joking Game Freak wanted people to forget it even existed. Then ''Pokémon Sun and Moon'' happened, however, and Raichu was amongst the various Pokémon to receive an Alolan Forme.

** Unfortunately, as StatusQuoIsGod, they seem to be JustFriends again by the time of ''AceAttorneyInvestigations'', barely a month later.
