Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/APeacefulAfterlife'': Many of DIO's men go from one-off villains to members of his elite gang. The biggest examples are [[spoiler:Gray Fly and the fake Captain Tennille, who are recurring antagonists and much more powerful than in canon]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/AChanceForANewDawn'', a ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThreeHouses'' fanfic focused on Bernadetta, has several characters gaining greater presence:
** Monica von Ochs, where in the game is a character rescued on the second half of Part I who [[spoiler:kills Jeralt two chapters later, reveals to be a member of "those who slither in the dark" and dies shortly after]], shows up here moments before the mock battle due to Bernadetta transferring from the Black Eagles to the Golden Deer very early in the school year. Monica is given more dialogue and personality, interacts with various characters, and [[SixthRanger tags along with the Golden Deer]] on their missions. Her role is increased into being TheLancer to Bernadetta.
** Bernadetta's parents not only have names (Allocer and Theresa) but they show up in person. For Allocer von Varley, the story [[HateSink pulls no punches]] on his [[AbusiveParents abusive nature]] towards her daughter and his overall hatred at everyone that isn't his wife or his personal butler. Theresa von Varley, although far nicer than her husband, is also portrayed negatively for [[ExtremeDoormat worrying more about Allocer's anger issues rather than his constant punishments towards Bernadetta]].


* ''Fanfic/LXGTempestRewrite'': Greta Mors, ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUK, [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]], Mysta of the Moon, and the Franchise/CthulhuMythos all have much more pivotal roles in the story.

* ''Fanfic/TruePotential'' is famous for this trope. The most prominent example is Anko, who becomes Naruto's Jonin-sensei, and Hinata and Shikamaru, who become Naruto's new teammates, but there are also characters who were hardly featured in the manga that get much bigger roles here, such as the Jinchuriki (Han, Roshi, Utakata and Yagura. Fuu, Yugito Ni and Killer B haven't appeared yet), the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist other than Zabuza, Kishame and Chojuro, and Kurotsuchi (who becomes [[spoiler: Shikamaru's love interest]]).

Added DiffLines:

* A combination of this and PosthumousCharcter, in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' fic “[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7530483/1/All-These-Things-That-I-ve-Done All These Things That I’ve Done]]”, depicting a world where Angelus was never cursed, Buffy is mentioned as having dated Ben Mitchell before Angelus killed him. Ben’s only appearance in canon was to ask Buffy to a dance in “[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E19IOnlyHaveEyesForYou I Only Have Eyes For You]]”, but the author felt that Ben was the better option for Buffy’s Angel-less romantic interest when the alternatives at this time were Owen and Scott, both of whom made bad decisions where Ben seemed like a genuinely nice guy.
