** She-Johnny appeared for about She-Johnny, the fan name given to the curvy, adult female form Johnny takes foe a split second in the very first episode, but that was series opening sequence in, and for just as long in the first episode. But those collective two seconds were enough to grant an awful lot of fanart; in fact, look fanart... granted, much of it up on Website/DeviantArt or is a related site.bit, ahem, illicit.


* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' had Tak, a scary and CrazyAwesome psychopathic female counterpart to Zim. She only appeared in one episode, but she's hugely popular. (Actually, the creators had planned to bring her back regularly and feature her as a major antagonist, but then...well...the show got cancelled before that could happen.)

* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' has plenty of one-episode wonders. Foxglove, the bat from "Good Times, Bat Times", appeared in only this one episode, but she seems to be part of a FanFic cast more often than not, she might have more fans than Monterey Jack, and she has even got [[http://foxglove.cdrrhq.ru/ a website dedicated to her]]. Tammy, the squirrelmaid from "Adventures in Squirrelsitting", comes in second. There are several more, including the lab rat Sparky from "Does Pavlov Ring a Bell", Gadget's EvilTwin Lahwhinie from "Gadget Goes Hawaiian", and Geegaw Hackwrench (who never even appeared on-screen, apart from a portrait in "To the Rescue" part 3). Unlike the others, Foxglove has gone on to make regular appearances in [[ComicBook/ChipNDaleRescueRangers the 2010 CDRR comic series]] produced by [[Creator/KaboomComics Boom! Kids]].
** Speaking of Chip and Dale, there was one short named "Two Chips and a Miss", in which a character named Clarice fills in the role of Chip and Dale's girlfriend. This was her only appearance, and yet she has a HUGE popularity (even appearing in Disney Parks for some reason), [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff especially in Japan]]. Who knew that a one appearance character would cause THIS much popularity?

** Then there are the Shadowbolts, who have gotten quite a few fans despite them not really existing - including Rainbow Dash, who dresses up as one for [[AllHallowsEve Nightmare Night]].

''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'':

** Vampire Susan and Mary, especially among the anti-''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' fans. The gothic dresses they wear, and their creepy, yet charming dialogue helps.


* The old ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'' animated series featured, in its run, precisely one episode with a would-be villain calling himself 'The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs At Midnight' (yeah, baby!). This character was [[TalkativeLoon so blisteringly off-the-wall]] - even by ''The Tick'''s standards - that he is easily one of the most memorable characters in the entire series.

** A relationship example Kid Flash and Jinx. After Lightspeed premiered, the love for the Kid Flash/Jinx pairing that emerged from that episode and eventually became an Official Couple ensured that pretty much everyone ships Kid Flash/Jinx (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_CTvyMZh5d8E/TJ-yfKxe7mI/AAAAAAAAAHY/2K3M9euR4-Y/s1600/flinx+17.jpg Flinx).

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' could claim a verifiable treasure trove of these, between one or two-line characters like the Tiny Manticore in "Son of Mars" or the Old Man Prisoner from "Gut Grinder" or single-episode characters like Lorraine from "BMO Noire" or Wormo from "Apple Thief." Of course, many of these characters go on to become an AscendedExtra.
* For one short scene in ''SuperHeroSquad'', Ray Stevenson reprises his role from the movie as ThePunisher, who lets the entire Squad crash in his van for as long as they can stand it. HilarityEnsues.
* Stacey, Larry's girlfriend, from the ''[[WesternAnimation/KaBlam Life With Loopy]]'' short "Larry's Girl". While she only appeared for one minute and had only one line of dialogue at the end of the episode (and oddly [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse never showed up again]]), most fans of the short absolutely love her, both for her generally being a very cute character and also due to her scene being [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments one of the most heartwarming ones in the series]].
* The baboon jogger from ''Series/BoJackHorseman''. His only appearance aside from silent cameos lasts for about thirty seconds at most. And yet in that thirty seconds he gives Bojack some of the best, most poignant life advice ever.
