* The executives have lost the rights to air the episode in rotation during repeat runs. * If it's an episode of an anime or an overseas import, usually it's skipped over due to translation issues, the aforementioned content issues, or the fact that it's filler and, therefore, a waste of time to show since it has nothing to do with the running story arc.

* Offensive content: An episode may be too violent, profane, sexual, or controversial to be shown. Similarly, a tragedy makes the episode's story or jokes come off as being in bad taste.[[note]]if the event precedes the fiction's publishing, it's TooSoon. If the fiction's "ruined" in retrospect by later events, it's a FunnyAneurysmMoment or HarsherInHindsight, and, therefore is considered a BannedEpisode[[/note]] This overlaps with BannedEpisode, though the difference between a Missing Episode and a BannedEpisode is that a banned episode is often an episode that used to have no censorial problems until complaints from MoralGuardians or a tragic real-world event ruins it. * Legal issues (usually over copyright infringement, libel, defamation of character, or a class-action suit). ** Related to this, some episodes are pulled due to insurmountable licensing issues relating to music used in the episode, or perhaps imagery, that render the episode no longer viable if edited out.

Can sometimes result from OldShame. Frequently confused with LostForever, which is a VideoGameItemsAndInventory Trope despite having a name that sounds like ''this'' Trope. For an episode that never actually existed in the first place, see {{UnInstallment}}. See also CanonDiscontinuity, for something that isn't recognized as part of the series, usually due to how out of place it is. See also BannedEpisode, which is a MissingEpisode that already aired at least once or twice, but was pulled due to complaints over content, legal issues, or a bad case of being "TooSoon."

An episode of a regular series which, for some reason, is not included when the series is shown in syndication (or is sometimes pulled when the series is first run and ''then'' shown in syndication or is never shown in syndication at all -- and, in some cases, not included when the show is put on home video, DVD, or online streaming websites). The circumstances are usually one, all, or any of the following: * Offensive content: An episode may be too violent, profane, sexual, or controversial to be shown.
