One And Done: Will These Characters Return?

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Not every video game hero has a career like Mario and Sonic's. Of course, not every game deserves a sequel. Some were never meant to produce a series, while others bombed at retail, the respective publishers cutting their losses and moving on to something presumably more lucrative.

As a result, many of these characters fade into obscurity, killing the opportunity to see them again. (Electroplankton, Elite Beat Agents, Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, Nintendo DS, Scurge: Hive)
