* Kalaupapa, Hawaii was founded in 1866 as a leper colony where Hawaiians with Hansen's disease--aka leprosy--were sent for over a century. Even though the disease has been treatable since the 40's, the stigma lingered an extra 20 years. When the state finally lifted its forced exile law in 1969 and moved to close the colony, many former patients wished to stay because they knew their disfigurements would make returning to normal society [[YouCantGoHomeAgain all but impossible]], plus they had formed a supportive community amongst themselves. As a result, Kalaupapa remained open and the patients have been allowed to live there (with a generous pension) for the rest of their lives. As of the 2010 census, less than a dozen of the original patients remain. When the last one passes away, the state plans on turning Kalaupapa into a national park and memorial.

* Kalawao County in Hawaii, located on the island of Molokai and isolated by steep cliffs, was originally a leper colony where Hawaii sent afflicted people from 1866 until 1969 when antibiotics were developed to treat the disease. But due to extensive physical disfigurements, many cured lepers opted to remain at the colony because they knew they'd [[YouCantGoHomeAgain never be accepted back into normal society]]. The state has allowed them to live out their lives in Kalawao with their families (Did you think the cured lepers couldn't make babies?). As of the 2010 census, less than 100 people live there, making it the smallest county in the United States, with only a dozen of the original lepers remaining. When the last of them passes away, the state plans on relocating the remaining families and turning Kalawao into a national park and memorial.

* In the two-part ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' episode "World Without End", several Joes find themselves in an AlternateReality where Cobra took over the world. Steeler, Clutch, and Grunt are terrified to find skeletal remains with dogtags with their own names; clearly, whatever Cobra did, their own counterparts in this world didn't survive it. Steeler eventually finds out that this isn't the only difference; in this reality, the Baroness is a double-agent, who was also his counterpart's lover in this world. After she and the heroes are able to help start what she calls "the First Cobra Civil War", and they find a way back to their world, Steeler decides to stay behind with her, saying there's really no-one waiting for him back home; Clutch and Grunt choose to stay behind too, upset at what happened to their alternate selves hoping to help bring Cobra down.
