* During the events of the first ''VideoGame/HaloWars'', Sergeant Forge sacrifices himself so that the ''Spirit of Fire'' can escape the Forerunner Shield World, thus a logical absence in the [[VideoGame/HaloWars2 sequel]]. That is, until you see some of the cards usable during the Blitz mode Beta which have the Leader Restriction set to Forge himself, like his trademark Grizzly tank.

* Crime and disaster documentaries often fall victim to this. If a particular person is brought up quite a bit but is never interviewed, chances are high that person's the killer and in prison/dead (in the case of the former), or that person died in the disaster (in the case of the latter). Disaster documentaries can subvert this trope by holding off interviewing someone until near the end, especially if they play it up like they're not going to make it but eventually do. Crime documentaries can also subvert it sometimes if the culprit has since been freed and can be interviewed normally, but this is rare.

* In ''Film/RogueOne: A Franchise/StarWars Story'', there are title cards for every planet featured, except for [[spoiler:Mustafar from ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'']], because it would've given away Darth Vader's presence [[spoiler:as he has his own private base there]].

** ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' has a subtle example based on mission postings: For the sake of none of the sidequests becoming LostForever from advancing the main quest, [[spoiler:Roland, who dies during the main storyline]] is the ''only'' NPC in Sanctuary who never gives you a sidequest in person ([[spoiler:the one he does give you is a recording]]).
** Another one for ''Borderlands 2'' requires a little digging into the menu for Badass Ranks, effectively completing optional challenges to acquire points that can be spent for stat increases. A common recurring challenge is Cult of the Vault, where you are tasked to find a variety of usually well-hidden symbols, and because it is a running tally challenge, you can go back various areas to look for them at your leisure. It's quite telling that [[spoiler:Control Core Angel]] has no Cult of the Vault challenges listed, but no surprise either [[WhamEpisode given what happens there]].

** The fact that the quests you get in some places, such as [[spoiler:Alcamoth or Mechonis]] are ALL "timed", meaning you can't do them after a certain point, will also spoil for you that some large scale event is likely to occur in (or to) these places, and that the quests present will become LostForever.

** Can be invoked through the miracle of Wonder Trade in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', ''VideoGame/PokemonOmegaRubyAndAlphaSapphire'', and ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. It's possible (but ''very'' unlikely) to wonder trade one of your ComMons and receive a Pokémon that you normally cannot obtain until the post-game. Bonus points for if you happen to get [[spoiler: one of the Ultra Beasts]] in Sun and Moon.

* When talking about ''Manga/DeathNote'' on a forum that allows spoiler tags, if you mention the death of [[spoiler:L, you should probably pad the spoiler out a little so it's not immediately apparent who you're talking about.]] To a lesser extent, this applies to [[spoiler:any character with an unusually short (re: around 3 characters or fewer) name]].
* This is essentially the reason for the existence of Polsy, which lets you display YouTube videos on a seperate screen; so Website/SomethingAwful {{Lets Play}}ers can host their videos on YouTube without the Related Videos spoiling the story.

* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', members of MissionControl and the crew are given a title card with their nationality, their age, their spoken languages, their job, whether they are TheImmune or not and extra info. In Chapter 1, one such card is given to Onni, who lasts only a few pages during which he's shown refusing to join the crew and ultimately getting left behind when his younger sister and cousin leave their home military base. Guess who reappears via the literal magic of dream world interactions in Chapter 7 and becomes an unexpected addition MissionControl in Chapter 10.
