* In ''Literature/{{Aeon 14}}'', the Victoria colony that the ''Intrepid'' crew builds in ''Building Victoria'' ends up being glassed offscreen by vengeful Sirians during the FTL Wars, centuries after ''Intrepid'' leaves (but only days for the ''Intrepid'' due to a YearOutsideHourInside scenario). The same happened to much of the Sol system that they had originally launched from, including Tanis's birthplace on Mars (buried under a fallen docking ring).

* Jude Heartfilia from ''Manga/FairyTail'' is introduced as Lucy's neglectful and WellIntentionedExtremist father early in the series, but is put on a bus when she disowns him for inadvertently causing the guild war between Fairy Tail and Phantom Lord. Later, he comes back in an attempt to make up to her, and he sort of manages. Cue putting him on a bus again. ''Much'' later (seven years in-universe and more than 100 chapters), Lucy herself realizes that he wasn't that bad and she wants him to pay him a visit. She finds out from his workplace that he just died...

* Creator/SeanConnery didn't want to reprise his role as Henry Jones Sr. in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', so he was written out as [[BusCrash having died offscreen]]. However, the character in question would have been very old anyway, and the touching moment to show this piece of information seems to indicate that there wasn't any bad blood there. It kept nicely with the theme of passing generations as well, and with their needing to write out Indy's other older-boss figure, [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim Marcus Brody]] (played by the late [[AuthorExistenceFailure Denholm Elliott]]), who had been Henry Jones Sr.'s friend.
