Do Wehave This One?

Basically, this is when a character that has been killed or otherwise Put on a Bus returns by the will of the fans. Some examples

  • Angel from Lilo & Stitch: The Series was originally supposed to be an episode exclusive. However, once the executives realized she was one of the most popular characters, they decided to have her appear two more times.
  • Mottis, creator of Bunny Kill, claims this is one of the possible ways Ruby could return.

    Helo in the new Battlestar Galactica was supposed to only appear in the miniseries, leaving him to presumably die on the irradiated, Cylon-occupied ruins of Caprica. He proved so popular that his exploits on Caprica, and eventual rescue, became a big subplot in the first full series, ending up with him as one of the main characters.

    Sherlock Holmes has gotta be the oldest example of this.
