* Happens over the course of the ''XWingSeries''. When Corran Horn is held captive in the Empire's most notorious prison, Lusankya, he befriends the old leader of the other prisoners, a man named Jan. Though Jan saves Corran's life during his escape attempt, Jan elects to stay behind and look after the others. Problem is, once Corran does come back with his squadron to free the rest of the prisoners, he discovers that the Empire had already relocated them to an unknown location - and that Jan was the legendary Rebel general at [[Film/ANewHope the Battle of Yavin]], Jan Dodonna. It takes Corran ''years'' (thanks to distractions such as [[Literature/TheCourtshipOfPrincessLeia Warlord Zsinj]] and [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]]) to make good on his promise, a task that involves faked deaths, alliances with old enemies, and an obsessive clone.

The trope name [[TropeNamer comes from]] General DouglasMacArthur's catch phrase after he fled the Philippines in 1942 when the Japanese invaded, vowing that he would come back in force to liberate the nation, which he did two years later during the Battle of Leyte with a hearty, "[[IncomingHam I have returned!]]"

That...didn't happen. The bulk of the prisoners left _before_ Honor did, and she left with the remainder.
* Despite securing a sizable fleet of ships, Literature/HonorHarrington is forced to leave many of the prisoners behind on the Havenite prison planet of Hades. Upon her return to Manticore, the Manticoran Alliance seizes on the opportunity to send a large force to Hades to evacuate the rest of the prisoners, with the Havenite government not even learning of the original jailbreak until the fleet is on their way home.

* Protoss Dragoons from ''StarCraft'' ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' say "I have returned" upon arrival. when arriving on the battlefield. (Although [[WeCanRebuildHim they aren't returning from an absence]], per se...) Their counterparts in the sequels, Immortals, prefer "I return to serve", whereas their ShadowArchetype, the Stalker, says "I am here in the shadows" instead. In all cases, they're quite proud to have their role of fire support from beyond the grave.
