*** Chaos Dwarfs were added to the Blood Bowl video game in its second expansion in 2012.

** The Warlord titan got a lot of flak during it's teaser for looking too much like "an Imperial Knight on steroids". Many old beards were quick to point out that it was in fact based on the first Warlord Titan model released for Epic 40k, which many people have long since forgotten even existed due to the ubiquity of the "Lucius" pattern warlord everyone's so used to now.

Squats were obviously just space dwarfs while exodites were wood elves, and neither really had a place in the game or lore other than as ersatz versions of their fantasy counterparts.

** 7th edition ended up reversing much of the sufferers of Chuck Cunningham Syndrome, by bringing back some elements of the fluff that was largely forgotten. The most prominent of these are the return of the Imperial Knights and the Kastellan Combat Automata, the former of which was quietly dropped in the latest (and last) edition of Epic 40k and the latter hasn't even been mentioned since 3rd edition of normal 40k. ** The Warlord titan got a lot of flak during it's teaser for looking too much like "an Imperial Knight on steroids".

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' has entire races that silently disappear between editions. What happened to the Fimir? ** They made a recent appearance in the GrahamMcNeill Sigmar-era novel ''Empire''. The 'mist daemons' are never definitively labelled as Fimir but it is very clear what they are supposed to be.

* Despite being featured in a couple of cards when the Gravekeeper theme first kicked off in the ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh TCG'', Cobraman Sakuzy and any references to him completely vanished in later expansions, most likely due to not being useful at all in any deck and being an ill-fit for the theme.

** Malal, the fifth Chaos god, was dropped around the 3rd edition of Warhammer Fantasy. This happened because the people who held the Copyright left Games Workshop. An entitiy called ''Malice'', a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute, has since appeared in Warhammer 40000, however. In addition, Be'lakor the Daemon Prince in Warhammer Fantasy share's many attributes with Malal.

** Another prominent example are the Illuminati (possessed psykers who manage to overcome the Daemon that possessed them), the Star Child (a Warp entity that supposedly represents the Emperor's soul) and the Sensei (supposedly the "sons" or descendants of the Emperor).

** In TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} the [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Squats]] vanished as well, partly for low sales but mostly because they were too silly/campy in a setting that was becoming DarkerAndEdgier. WordOfGod has usually been "the Tyranids ate them all" (supported by the "Abhuman" section in the 6th edition rulebook) but they have occasionally tried to claim "they never existed". Blame Chaos, perhaps.
