Isn't it supposed to be about an character that coming back an a sequal that you didn't expect to come back?
So maybe Unexpected Recurring Character? That doesn't sound quite right, but something along those lines.
Nope, and it doesn't even need to be in a sequel. It happens frequently in crossover works as well. In the original Super Smash Bros., Ness from EarthBound qualified. It also covers adaptations that manage to dust off characters that may not have been at the top of various people's lists. And they don't necessarily have to be recurring. Unexpected Character makes sense for a new name to me.
Rule of Funny. Image Pickin' Discussion here.
If you want it removed, open a new Image Pickin' Discussion about it - although it'll help to have a good image suggestion in mind that actively, unambiguously displays the trope (or at any rate, does a good enough job of it).
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you. You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
