* ''Webcomic/NotInMyBackyard'': Terrance the armadillo largely disappeared after the first few months. After that, the secondary characters vanished one by one, leaving just Oscar, Oliver, Bip, and Bap.

*In ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'', the Fantasy and Space themes (and, extremely early on, Cliffhangers) operated on the conceit that they are TabletopRPG campaigns, complete with a GM. This was soon dropped from Cliffhangers after the GM made only two appearances there, but Fantasy and Space continued maintaining this. Gradually, the GM started appearing less and less, until his final appearances in the Space and Fantasy themes ended up being [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1651.html No. 1651]] and [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1662.html No. 1662]], respectively. The last time the GM was ever mentioned was in [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1935.html No. 1935]], when Space's Paris character gets fed up with a TimeyWimeyBall situation and starts calling for the GM, only to get no response. (Of course, this was months after the AuthorAvatar had [[ItMakesSenseInContext killed himself]]...)

* In ''Webcomic/BoyMeetsBoy'' Harley's "best friend" Aubrey just suddenly disappeared entirely with no explanation once Harley's bandmates, Skids and Cyanide, pretty much took over her role. Much, much later in the comic, however, Aubrey suddenly reappears with her disappearance being accredited to going through gender reassignment therapy, after which male-Aubrey remains in the comic for its duration.

Every time a new character was announced for ''Smash Bros. WiiU'', the comic would lampshade just how much he was left behind. In [[http://awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=062215 this]] comic arc, made after Roy was confirmed for DLC, we realise that he's been gone so long that only Marth and Pit seem to remember him.

* Characters regularly come and go as Agatha the eponymous ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' travels about Europa, but Klaus Wulfenbach's second in command Boris Dolokhov notably has vanished from his position without explanation following Agatha's in-universe two-year time-skip.

* ''WapsiSquare'' lost a few characters in its CerebusSyndrome, but after a year or two brought back one of them and wrote a concluding plotline for another. Why can't everyone be this diligent?

* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' occasionally introduces plot elements that just don't come to anything, and in the early days, two such elements were Eulice the terrifying landlady and Rob the agoraphobic neighbor. Presumably the writers couldn't think of much more than one joke each for them. Junghan the comics shop manager (best friend of lead character Gary and boss of other lead character Zii) also seemed to be a Syndrome sufferer, but made at least a brief return after a couple of years' absence from the comic.

* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' occasionally introduces plot elements that just don't come to anything, and in anything. Some are simply one-shot characters, but others might have been expected to reappear.

Junghan the comics shop manager (best friend of lead character Gary and boss of other lead character Zii) also seemed to be a Syndrome sufferer, but made at least a brief return after a couple of years' absence from the comic.comic, and even showed up for a brief but effective crossover appearance in spin-off ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns.''
** Takeru Oyama, famous manga artist and father of the fairly major character Yuki, made one appearance in a few strips in March 2012. He was subsequently reported to have been mentoring lead character Gary for a week after that, but then he dropped off the face of the comic. He presumably flew home to Japan, which would excuse his vanishing, but when last seen he apparently believed that Gary and Yuki were all but engaged.
