** Locke, a good friend of [[{{sadist}} Ramsay Bolton]], had successfully [[TheMole faked friendship]] with Jon Snow and Jon's circle in an attempt to harm or assassinate Jon and his two younger brothers -- Bran and Rickon Stark -- and Locke is never mentioned again after what the Night Watch characters believe to have been a heroic death. It is justified because shortly after they return to Castle Black, they have other problems to deal with, such as Mance's army and the White Walkers. Not to mention, some of Jon's other friends die, and he mourns them.

You'd think Ramsay would at least bring him up to mess with Jon, but nope.

* ''Film/ExorcistIITheHeretic'' seems determined to ignore Father Damien Karas, the hero of ''Film/TheExorcist'' who sacrificed himself to save Regan. The only acknowledgement he gets is a few references to the three people who died in the original.



* ''Film/{{Transformers}}'': "So sad, [[spoiler: Jazz]] is dead. Oh well, we have new friends!".

* [[spoiler:When the Bunker gets destroyed in Route C]] of ''VideoGame/NierAutomata]], [[spoiler:Operator 6O gets no more mention from anyone after. This is because 2B is the only one of the main three androids who is at all close to her and doesn't to make any mention when she dies herself not long after. As for the other two, 9S didn't know her on a personal level and A2 has never met her.]]

* Speaking of Jason Todd, he wasn't mentioned much after his death in ADeathInTheFamily. Other Batman media didn't even acknowledge his existence. It wasn't until the 2005 Under the Red Hood miniseries that he became prominent in comics again, and then in 2010 he made his debut in animation in the movie, WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood opening the way for other media to [[BatmanArkhamKnight show]] or [[YoungJustice allude to him.]]

* [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Captain Kirk]] suffers (in the first episode in which he appears,) the loss of a friend he's had for many years, whom he [[ShootTheDog himself was forced to kill.]] Further along in the series, he also suffers the loss of his brother. And yet, the only death that seemed to affect him long term was the death of main, recurring character Spock (which didn't even stick.) Although Kirk has had and lost [[GirlOfTheWeek many love interests]] over the course of the show, he doesn't seem all that affected by their passing. (Granted, in at least two cases, he was made to forget that they had ever existed, but one would think he would at least remember and dwell upon Edith Keeler from time to time...)

* Weed of ''Anime/GingaDensetsuWeed'' gets over the death of [[spoiler: his mother ''extremely'' fast]]. Weirdly, he mourns more when [[spoiler:John dies,]] even getting emotional to the point of trying to go kill the BigBad all by himself, and he ''didn't even know the guy.'' He just met him literally ''minutes'' before he dies.

* In ''WebVideo/AVeryPotterMusical'', [[spoiler:Cedric]] dies at the end of the first act. Nobody cares enough to mention it after the first five minutes of Act Two.

* A meta example occurs in the ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' tie-ins to ''ComicBook/BlackestNight''. A villain tells C-list heroine Doctor Light that once he kills her, the superhero community will briefly mourn but quickly forget about her. He then cites several superheroes (such as Triumph) who were all quickly forgotten about by both writers and fans after their deaths.

** "So sad, [[spoiler: Jazz]] is dead. Oh well, we have new friends!".
** [[spoiler: Jetfire]] didn't get so much as a mention after he [[spoiler: rips [[HeroicSacrifice his own spark out]] to give Optimus his parts to fight The Fallen]] and is more or less forgotten after [[spoiler: Optimus kills The Fallen]].
** In Dark of the Moon, [[spoiler: Ironhide is barely even acknowledged as having been killed.]] Even [[spoiler: Que/Wheeljack]] was given a better, albeit brief eulogy by Bumblebee before Bee went back to kicking ass.
** Of course, given the Autobots and Decepticons alike are the last survivors of [[ForeverWar a war that raged for thousands of years]] and ended with [[EarthShatteringKaboom the destruction of their home planet]], this all makes [[FridgeHorror a grim kind of sense]]. [[ConditionedToAcceptHorror They've lost so many friends and comrades that they're mostly desensitised to it.]]
