* In ''Series/{{Lost}}'', the Swan Orientation film noticeably had a snippet removed the first time Desmond and Locke watched it. The missing snippet - which clarified why the computer was not to be used for anything other than entering the Numbers every 108 minutes - was later explained as an edit made by Razdinsky and stored in a hollowed-out Bible in another station across the island, which was later found by Eko. The reasons why the film was edited were never clarified, but Michael's use of the computer to communicate with Walt set off the entire series of tragic events in the second half of Season 2.

* The diary of John Wilkes Booth has over a dozen pages missing. It is unknown whether he tore out the pages himself, or if they were removed afterwards. This has led to [[EpilepticTrees theories]] that someone else was behind the Lincoln assassination, most notably Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, who was given the diary after it was recovered from Booth's body. To this day, the missing pages and their contents remain unknown.
