** Season 6 has had this happen to a couple characters - [[spoiler: Osha, Rickon, and Hodor]] - who sat out Season 5 and 4 in case of the first two (due to their storylines having no relevance to that particular season) only to come back for brief appearances in Season 6 before being dispatched. Rickon, in particular, only appeared for two scenes: his reintroduction and his death at Ramsay's hands.

* VideoGame/FinalFantasyII is a game where the ArbitraryHeadcountLimit of the game's party is maintained by PlotlineDeath, with three exceptions: [[HealerSignsOnEarly Fynn's royal aide Minwu]], which goes back to his duties after [[CrutchCharacter crutching]] the party for a while, [[CowardlyLion Kashuan prince Gordon]], who stays around just enough to get over his self-worth issues, and [[PirateGirl Sea Scourge Leila]], who escapes an ambush where your main party got captured by the skin of her teeth, but then sticks around with the rest of the rebels, which your team is part of, by the time the group returns... And then Minwu plays this trope straight, by offering his life in exchange for unsealing the tome with the ultimate spell, necessary for fighting back against [[BigBad The Emperor]]'s hostile takeover of the lands.

* On ''Series/Passions'', the character Grace Bennett was written out of the show by having her move to England with her supposed first husband, David. Viewers knew that David had never really been married to the amnesiac Grace. Years later, the ruse was revealed by Grace's daughter Kay in a phone conversation; Grace appeared onscreen and was enraged at the (offscreen) David, and decided to return to her real family. She was promptly killed when her bus to the airport exploded; series antagonist "The Blackmailer" feared her psychic abilities would expose him.
