* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', [[spoiler:Terra]] who died in a HeroicSacrifice at the end of season 2 is never mentionned again by [[spoiler:her former teammates]]. Or at least not until [[spoiler:her sudden return in season 5]].

** 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.]]

* At the end of his arc in ''Videogame/StarCraft: Brood War'', Raynor makes an impressive speech vowing to hunt down and kill [[MagnificentBastard Kerrigan]] after her final betrayal and murdering of [[{{Badass}} Protoss warrior]] and [[BashBrothers fellow ass-kicker]], Fenix. Come ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIWingsOfLiberty'', [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Fenix is not mentioned]] (not even in passing), and Raynor's anger at Kerrigan seems to have subsided into a mixture of terror and [[TheDulcineaEffect confused longing]]. Of course, 4 years have passed (in-game) and ''[=StarCraft=] II'''s story was only a third complete at the time, so this could very well change come the Kerrigan/Zerg-centric ''Heart of the Swarm''. Also, [[spoiler:Zeratul, the one who wants Kerrigan dead more than Raynor, tells him that Kerrigan is vital for the survival of the sector, thus rendering the whole vengeance thing as something... suicidal, to say the least.]]

* The supporting cast in the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' trilogy all tend to suffer this fate as the hero Ash survives each night and moves from one sequel to the next (each movie begins just a few seconds after the last one's cliffhanger ending), with his dead girlfriend Linda remaining relevant the longest. But the most brazen example is his sister Cheryl from ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'', who was the first one possessed by the demons. Her existence, along with two other friends, was skipped right over by the [[Film/EvilDead2 second movie]]'s opening recap, and a comic book adaptation of the first movie relegated her from his sibling to a friend-of-a-friend whose DemonicPossession merely annoys Ash. The [[Theatre/EvilDeadTheMusical musical's]] version of the story elevates her back to being his sister, mostly so she can spout off {{Incredibly Lame Pun}}s about being his sibling...

* Littlefoot's mother in ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime''. He mourns for her for a good deal of the first film, but only mentions her a grand total of three times during the following twelve sequels, one of which is just a passing reference. Presumably the writers were uncomfortable about bringing up such a dark topic in a kid's series, but it does give us the slightly worrying possibility that Littlefoot is in serious denial or something.

* At the beginning of the second ''Film/AustinPowers'' movie, Austin's wife Vanessa reveals herself to be a Fembot apropos of nothing and promptly explodes. His boss drops a line like "Sadly, yes, we knew it all the time" and the matter is never brought up again.

* Subverted in ''Manga/FairyTail'', which has had three significant character deaths. Lisanna's death is first mentioned in the Phantom Lord arc, and her siblings are seen going to pray for her near the aniversary of her death about 100 chapters later (not to mention [[spoiler:her coming back]]). Ur's death, which also happened in a back story, plays a large role in Gray's arc, and that she became part of the ocean at the end is actually a significant point ''200'' chapters later. And of course, the death of [[spoiler:Simon]] comes up whenever Jellal is playing a large part in whatever is going on, even if it's usually pushed out of mind when Jellal isn't around.

* Zig-zagged in''Manga/DeathNote'' [[spoiler: Ukita]] gets killed on live TV, everyone on the investigation team sees it, but it is practically forgotten a few pages later, likely because Souichiro [[CarFu rams an armored car into the TV Station]] to get his hands on the Kira Tapes. However, his death is mentioned a few times in later episodes.
