* According to [[AllThereInTheManual the "Wesker's Report" publications]], Sherry Birken was taken from Claire and Leon's care by Wesker's agents after the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2''. In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles'', though, it's declared that the government of the United States took Sherry after they found the survivors and they use her as a bartering chip to make Leon work for them, hence his involvement in the core-story of Darkside Chronicles and the chronologically-later ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4''. This was possibly the result of the fact that "Wesker's Report" was [[NoExportForYou never released outside of Japan]].

UnPerson is a variety where ''someone'' is "retconned away". See TreacheryCoverUp for another sub-trope. DeceasedFallGuyGambit is another form of this.

** Joker's theory is that they believed Shepard, but couldn't admit that during the second game "because, you know... ''[[DealWithTheDevil Cerberus]]''". It's not entirely implausible; while Shepard is irritated that the Council seems to have ignored the threat, war assets like the volus's Thanix-equipped dreadnought and salarian stealth dreadnoughts don't get built overnight.
