Page Type: trope
A Sub-Trope of Adaptation Expansion, this is the opposite of Adapted Out: a character from the same franchise is given an appearance, when they were absent in the original work. Can sometimes replace a character who was omitted for the adaptation.
Contrast Canon Foreigner, which is a character created specifically for the adaptation; this is a character from the same franchise who gets a role in the adaptation they didn't have in the source material. May overlap with Composite Character and Adaptational Early Appearance.
