* StarMakingRole: Hayden Panettiere wasn't exactly unknown before, but the show pretty much made her and Zachary Quinto household names. It also hasn't done Masi Oka or Milo Ventimiglia any harm.

* StarMakingRole: For most of the cast, really.
** While
Hayden Panettiere wasn't Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia, Greg Grunberg, and Adrian Pasdar weren't exactly unknown before, but the show pretty much made her increased their acting profiles.
** The show also helped Santiago Cabrera
and Sendhil Ramamurthy increase their profiles in the UK.
** This show is essentially the reason you know who
Zachary Quinto household names. It also hasn't done Masi Oka or Milo Ventimiglia any harm.is and how he got his even bigger role as Spock in the ''Star Trek'' films.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Series/VeronicaMars has lightning powers.
** And Weevil can really scream.
** [[Film/{{Scream 4}} Kirby]] [[Creator/HaydenPanettiere Reed]] has healing powers, [[spoiler:proving that she's NotQuiteDead]].
** [[Series/GilmoreGirls Jess Mariano]] can mimic others' powers, who knew?
** [[Film/FinalDestination Clear Rivers]] can now evade death thanks to her endless supply of siblings.
** [[Series/BabylonFive Captain Sheridan]] appoints Nathan to the Senate.
** [[Series/{{Glee}} Quinn Fabray]] as [[TypeCasting a cheerleader]]
** How often to do you see a show with [[Series/{{Scrubs}} Franklin]] and [[MyWifeAndKids another Franklin]]
*** And a third [[Series/FranklinAndBash Franklin]], yet.
** The [[Series/DoctorWho Ninth Doctor]] can now turn invisible.
** [[Series/PrettyLittleLiars Alison DiLaurentis]] as Lydia's daughter who makes things blow up.
** [[Series/TheVampireDiaries Andie Star]] is the tattooed lady, and [[Franchise/{{StarWars}} Darth Maul]] is the knife-thrower.
** Elle was played by Kristen Bell, who later [[Disney/{{Frozen}} wanted to build a snowman with a Snow Queen.]]
** A particularly bizarre example occurred with Matt Lanter (Brody the rapist quarterback), who had previously been a regular on ''Series/CommanderInChief'', playing the President's teenage son. The weird part is that Hayden Panettiere had a guest role on ''Series/CommanderInChief'', and the two of them ended up making out. Hopefully, their prior... familiarity... made filming the rape scene a little easier.
** [[Series/TheNanny Grace Sheffield]] is Claire's roommate/girlfriend.
** [[Series/JaneTheVirgin Rafael]] can breathe underwater.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Anakin Skywalker]] as a quarterback who accidentally kills Claire.
** [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Kairi]] can now never get hurt.

** Sylar gaining [[spoiler: shapeshifting]] powers was a pretty obvious attempt to keep the character around despite ZacharyQuinto being absent for long periods of time due to being the new [[Film/StarTrek Spock]].

*** In the same original pilot, it was shown that Isaac had gotten to the drugs in order to paint, despite having handcuffed himself, because he used a say to ''cut off his hand'' - further explaining why he was in such terrible condition when Simone and Peter found him. The footage was cut and spliced to remove this element. Kring admitted on the DVD Commentary that the reason for this was that original outline had Season 1 lasting months if not a whole year (as opposed to imitating ''Series/{{Lost}}''), during which Isaac was to relearn how to use his hand after it was reattached, in addition to learning to see the future without his drugs; this became impractical when the narrative was condensed into (roughly) six weeks and so was cut from the final product.

** One of those AbortedArcs was to keep Debbie and make her Claire's love interest, with the subtext already written into the character when she was in the first half of the second season. Of course, when the show resumed the gay characters were still being given vetoes (so Debbie may well be gay or bi, this just wasn't shown explicitly). By the time they weren't, Creator/DiannaAgron was playing this character on ''Series/{{Glee}}'' alongside other ''Heroes'' vets.
