* In ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', this happens when John leaves Cortana in the Control Room while he goes to find the [[MacGuffin Index.]]
** Ditto for most of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', after leaving Cortana in High Charity at the end of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}''. This time, she's also off her meds.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'', after defeating the third boss, Cap'n Cuttlefish ends up getting captured by the BigBad, forcing you to clear the next level without any guidance. Afterwards, Agents 1 and 2 (A.K.A. [[spoiler:the Squid Sisters]]) show up and act as your MissionControl for the rest of the adventure.

* In ''TheNamelessMod'' your handlers cannot reach you while deep underground or during the horror-based mission on each route. You can get a substitute in the first instance ([[StopHelpingMe though you may not want to]]) but in the latter cases you are alone (save for the mad AI in one of them) to increase the sense of isolation.

* In the ''SplinterCell'' game ''Double Agent'', Lambert serves as mission control most of the time on behalf of Third Echelon, while Dufraisne occasionally does the same for the JBA. During the penultimate mission, Lambert turns out to [[spoiler:have been kidnapped by the JBA for posing as an arms dealer]] and his role is filled by Third Echelon Director Tom Reed for the rest of the game.

If the main character also resents the MissionControl for sitting in a comfortable office while they risk their necks, this can lead to instances of HarsherinHindsight, and can also lead to the main character developing a strong sense of guilt. If they are kidnapped, there will probably be a StoryArc later on revolving around rescuing the MissionControl character.

* ZigZagged in the final mission of ''MirrorsEdge'': [[spoiler:Faith's original MissionControl Merc dies of a gunshot wound in the opening cutscene, so she sets off to storm the Shard on her own. Mid-mission, however, she meets Lieutenant Miller, who guides her through the more tricky parts of the building before being cut off (captured or worse) by the PK, so Faith has to go on on her own again]].

* Dan in ''VideoGame/{{Iji}}'' becomes unavailable ''twice'': once in Sector [[spoiler:5]] and [[spoiler:6]] (communications failure), and again in Sector [[spoiler:8]] (kidnapped). [[spoiler:The second time also ends with his death if you aren't CrazyPrepared.]] Also an UnfunnyAneurysmMoment example, since Iji initially expresses annoyance that she's the only one risking her life.
