** And though bringing them all back would naturally be problematic production-wise, there are many past Rangers whose powers still exist, so you'd think they'd drop by for certain global catastrophies. In particular, Countdown to Destruction could've benefitted from a few "stock footage shoots at other stock footage" type scenes from the Zeo Rangers and the (never stated to be in continuity, but why not?) [[Series/BigBadBeetleborgs other]] [[Series/MaskedRider Saban]] [[Series/VRTroopers shows]].

* An episode of ''ThomasTheTankEngine'' introduced a character named "Derek The Diesel" who suffered from "teething troubles" . At the end of the episode he was sent off to have the "troubles" repaired, but aside from a cameo (from the back) during a music video in the special "Calling All Engines" he has not been seen since.

** Maybe an even more ridiculous one would be Ash's Primeape, which was PutOnABus less than five episodes after Ash caught it, left in the care of somebody who promised to turn it into "a true champion". It was never seen again... in the dub. In the original dialog, there was no line of him returning for the Pokémon. Yet, the openings ''Spurt!'' (the final opening of ''Advance Generation) and ''Yajirushi ni Natte!'' (the second opening of ''Best Wishes'') still count Primeape and Squirtle as Pokémon who still are in his ownership.

Added DiffLines:

* In the beginning of the second season of ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'', Clare Martel has a nervous breakdown, and is prescribed a period of rest and seclusion away from anything that might remind her of her troubles. She goes to stay as a guest at a convent, and although there are reports of her progress every few episodes, she never appears on-screen again.

* The character Gin from one of the earliest arcs in OnePiece stated that he wanted to see the main characters again on the Grand Line. Over 500 chapters, [[spoiler: half of the Grand Line, and a two year time skip]] later and he still has yet to be mentioned again. And this is in a series where the author seemingly never forgets about characters. Of course, the series is not over yet, but each passing arc (and dramatic increase in the power of the villains) makes it more and more difficult to imagine his return. Though ''One Piece'' is definitively not a CantCatchUp type of series, since there have been examples of characters who were weak or even outright noncombatants reappearing after long absences as legitimate badasses, no one has ever done so after ''that'' long.
** Well he WAS suffering from Don Krieg's [=MH5=] poison at the time... [[FridgeHorror and coughed up blood]] [[BusCrash before he left..]]

* ''ShiningTimeStation'' wrote out Ringo Starr's Mr. Conductor by having him accompany Santa Claus to the North Pole. A relative, also called Mr. Conductor (and bearing a resemblance to Creator/GeorgeCarlin) took his place, and the original Mr. Conductor was never seen or heard from again afterward.

* On ''{{Series/Parks and Recreation}}'', Mark Brendanawicz left his government job to return to the private sector at the end of season 2. This was originally intended to turn him into a DropInCharacter, but instead he simply dropped out of the show entirely (actor Paul Schneider wanted to return to movies.) Even though Mark should still live in Pawnee, a relatively small town, he is never seen, heard from or even ''mentioned'' again... to the point that in a season 5 episode when Ann, whom he dated for most of season 2, clears out boxes full of ex-boyfriends' stuff from her house, there's ''no box for Mark''.

* This was done to Brooke Smith's character Erica Hahn on ''GreysAnatomy'' for no apparent reason whatsoever: they spent several episodes building up her relationship with Callie, including an excellent scene where she tearfully declares that Callie "[[ComingOutStory is glasses]]," only to randomly fire her because the writers stopped liking their own story. Erica and Callie get in a fight about the Izzie LVAD-cutting debacle and about how Callie "[[NoBisexuals can't be]] ''[[NoBisexuals kind of]]'' [[NoBisexuals a lesbian]]," and she walked off into the parking lot...''forever.'' She was then more or less replaced with perky LipstickLesbian Arizona Robbins. Further proof of Shonda Rhimes' ridiculous and fickle casting habits.

* Sergeant Scott of MidsomerMurders was mentioned as having called in sick in one episode. That was the last mention of him. Especially jarring since both his predecessor ''and'' his successor was phased out simply by having them promoted and therefore moved to a different position in the police force.
