Added DiffLines:

** In ''Manga/{{Yu-G-Oh 5Ds}}'' has Yusei's friend Rally and the other three guys. Yusei's motivation to escape the satellite is partly to improve all of their lives, and he only agrees to enter the Fortune Cup because Rex takes them prisoner. Once the Dark Signers are defeated, they completely vanish until a brief cameo in the second last episode. You'd think they could at least turn out to support their friends at the WRGP.

* ''Anime/WolfsRain:'' [[spoiler: Blue]] is conspicuously absent in the ending, where all the other [[spoiler: wolves are shown reincarnated.]] Fans have debated this, but the assumed explanation is that [[spoiler: she wasn't reincarnated because she was not a pure wolf.]]

** While not a specific character, the various kinds of animal people that were all over the place in the original ''Manga/DragonBall'' vanish without a trace after the Saiyan Saga except for Oolong and Puar. They do make very occasional appearances, but the episodes are few and far between. For example they are remembered in one World Tournament episode in the Buu saga, episode 209, but then they're all gone again the very next episode even though the location didn't change any. The movies Bojack Unbound and Super Android 13 remembered they exist as well. So far, not a single nameless background animal person has been seen in Dragonball Super, though there was ONE dog person in the Resurrection of F movie.

The last scene we see with her is her [[FalseStart interrupting a love confession]] between Yuki Sohma and Machi Kuragi while looking for her missing hair brush. She never appears again.

** TheBusCameBack - he reappears for a brief moment (one panel on one page) in chapter 47 in ''[=ViVid=]''.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Jack recounts the story of how Nagi saved his love interest, Queen Arika, a few years before Negi was born. No one has mentioned her since, and Negi hasn't asked. This also leads to a touch of KarmaHoudini, since Arika has (evidently) never intervened to save her sister, her lover, or her 10-year-old son from fates worse than death.
* For a {{Hentai}} with so few characters, it's quite noticeable when Io Azuma in ''Anime/MoonlightLady'' simply vanishes.
* Quite a few characters in ''Manga/OhMyGoddess'' drop out of the series over the course of forty-eight volumes, though some of them are justifiable. Many of the early characters are people who Keichii interacted with as a college student, so once he graduated, he was no longer anywhere that he'd be likely to run into Sayoko or Aoshima anymore, and the Motor Club similarly diminished in importance, though since Keichii got a job with a former member, they hung around longer.



* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has an unusual case involving Mewtwo, who hadn't been seen or mentioned since ''The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon''. Then [[PokemonGenesectAndTheLegendAwakened the sixteenth movie]] turned out to feature Mewtwo, except the Mewtwo in this movie turned out to be a [[SuspiciouslySImilarSubstitute different entity that the previous one]].

Sakamoto is replaced by Shiro Kato (brother of the late Saburo Kato) in the next film ''Be Forever Yamato''. Kaoru Shintani, the ship's cook hasn't been seen since the first series.
