* In ''Machinima/RedvsBlue'' the last time we see Sister is at the start of season 6. Later in season 7 when Lopez shows up, he claims to have killed her before leaving Blood Gulch. Grif doesn't believe it, but Lopez gives no indication that he is lying.

** Turns out to be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], as the second to last episode of Season 13 reveals that Sister is still alive and well in Blood Gulch. Apparently, Lopez only choked her until she passed out, which Sister recalls as being "[[TooKinkyToTorture kinda hot]]".

When Bob is PutOnABus, that means he's being written out of the show in such a way that he could logically return. Audiences have come to expect that the [[TheBusCameBack bus will come back]] someday with Bob on it, even if it's [[BackForTheFinale only for the last arc or episode]]. So one of the cruelest subversions of that expectation is for the writers to show us the bus bringing Bob back again and then wreck it just as it comes into view. That is, they mention Bob only to show us that he's ''not'' coming back. [[DroppedABridgeOnHim A bridge fell on him]] while he was off-screen. Or, as ''Series/{{MASH}}'' once employed to great effect, we learn of Bob's death within minutes of receiving the news that he went away. This is doubly shocking in situations where the main plot is a dangerous place and getting on the "bus" means escape and safety.

* According to WordOfGod, most of the Howling Commandos from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' have died of natural causes by the time ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' takes place (although this is hardly unexpected, due to the huge time gap).
** To drive this home, an alternate opening for ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' would have shown Steve reading a newspaper headline about Dum Dum Dugan having passed away.
