* For a long time [[Creator/TerryPratchett Sir Terry Pratchett's]] first novel, ''TheCarpetPeople'', was out of print and almost impossible to find second hand due to a tiny original print run. However, eventually his publishers got so fed up of having to tell people there was no demand for it that it was reissued. Technically, it was reissued as a new [[DirectorsCut Author's Cut]], since Pratchett wanted to fix a lot about the novel. So you can read the special edition, but good luck finding the original.

* ThatDudeInTheSuede's [[FanVid AMV]] '''The Advent Children Picture Show''' (''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren'' And ''[[RockyHorrorPictureShow Don't Dream It, Be It]]'') was originally uploaded to Website/YouTube, and was taken down by Creator/SquareEnix, with no file to download out of its [[http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_videoinfo.php?v=143105 Anime Music Videos page]]. Suede showed a clip as an inbetweener on his Top 11 Anime Villains list. It was finally rereleased, used as {{Padding}} on his review of ''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren'' to make the video reach a full half hour. It's the only way of watching this AMV.

* A similar situation to ''Chu-Teng'' happened to another obscure japanese game: ''[[VideoGame/GarageBadDreamAdventure Garage: Bad Dream Adventure]]'' by the developer Kinotrope. While the other two games by Kinotrope, ''[[VideoGame/AliceOnTheBorderlines Alice on the Borderlines]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SararasLittleShop Sarara's Little Shop]]'', which are equally as obscure, are at least findable on the internet (with the latter even receiving a non-translated release in the American PSN), ''Garage'' was thought to be a legitimate piece of lost media... Until a copy of the game was put up on Yahoo Actions Japan, and a user on the ''[[Website/HardcoreGaming101 Hardcore Gaming 101]]'' forums bought it and subsequently ripped it for the world to enjoy, along with various scans and photographs of the manual, box and other included feelies.

* For the longest time, {{Suikoden2}} was one of the rarest games for the [=PS1=] owing to its very limited print and low initial sales, much to the chagrin of fans as it is often cited as one of the greatest [=JRPGs=] ever. Thankfully in late 2014, it was finally uploaded to the PSN, to the joy of fans worldwide.

* ''[[VideoGame/EasternMindTheLostSoulsOfTongNou Chu-Teng]]'', a sequel to the similarly obscure ''Eastern Mind'' from the same creator as ''LSD'', was for a long time considered the most obscure game ever and a lost video game. A massive investigation began in 2013 to find it, but Osamu Sato himself told them he didn't own a copy and the only collector known to have it refused to upload the content. Eventually someone revealed that they had a copy in their attic and uploaded the game.

* Probably one of the oldest and most obscure examples is the story of Michael Servetus's heretical text ''Christianismi Restitutio'' (Latin for "The Restoration of Christianity"). Since Servetus was more radical than even most Protestants of the time (for example, he rejected both the Trinity and infant baptism), Catholics and Protestants alike denounced and suppressed him and his works. John Calvin led a huge effort to destroy all copies of Servetus's books and eventually [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill had Servetus burned at the stake on a pile of copies of ''Christianismi Restitutio'', with the last known copy of the book bound to his leg.]] \\\
Only three first-edition copies still exist; for nearly half a millennium, these copies have passed from person to person through Europe. But there are many later copies, and the book is still in print (you can find it on Amazon.com).
