'''Note:''' In order to qualify a game must be generally be open to {{backtracking}} and not just have a linear advancement through it. So the 1950s areas in ''{{Videogame/Portal 2}}'', for example, don't qualify here.

* As ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' is a fantastical twist on [[BoldExplorers the Age of Exploration]], the few places that cannot be revisited tend to be smaller than usual for this trope. The dungeons that cannot be revisited are the ship manned by Alfonso that's raided in the opening, Valua's Grand Fortress (which is part of a [[GreatEscape prison break sequence]], Dangral Island, the interior of the ''Hydra'' airship (lost after defeating [[BigBad Galcian]], its captain), and [[spoiler:the Great Silver Shrine]]. Dangral Island and [[spoiler:the Great Silver Shrine]] can be visited repeatedly once assessed, but will both be destroyed after certain points in the story: Dangral will fall apart after the second story-mandated trip to it, while [[spoiler:the Great Silver Shrine is eventually[[ColonyDrop used]] to destroy [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Soltis']] barrier during the final assault against Galcian's forces.]]

*** Gandaroof's mind even has its own example-within-an-example: The initial village you visit, populated by elderly men? [[spoiler:Once you visit the town of Gandaroof's youth, one child there will remark that there's no town there, but a tower. Returning to the town of elderly men will reveal it to be the actual dungeon of the area.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'', a few locations become unrevisitable:
** The well beneath Capitan, as it floods after beating the boss. A few items can be missed, but furthermore, there are several trapped and possessed villagers (some of whom can potentially be chosen as carpenters to build Township later on) who can be missed for good if you don't go back for them.
** The vast majority of Mt. Fubi, as a rockslide destroys it after you beat the bosses (though a shortcut gets created as a result).
** HighFort can only be done once, as the fortress undergoes extensive damage following the boss fight there, and becomes completely inaccessible following Sten's arc.
** The levels that take place "inside" someone or something - the interior of Grandpa the Whale is inaccessible after you wake him up; Gandaroof's mind is only available until you defeat Aruhamel/Alzheimer; and the Queen of Tunlan's body is only available until she loses all her excess weight.

Returning to the town of elderly men will reveal it to be the actual dungeon of the area.
** The trial/catacombs area of Wyndia is unavailable after Nina completes her trial there.
** The Grand Church is only available to visit once. [[spoiler:It collapses after you defeat the boss and either kill or free Ganer.]] Similarly, the toilet dungeon you escape through on your initial visit can only be done once.

** The Black Tyrano fortress in 65,000,000 B.C. is destroyed when Lavos crashes into it. Mt. Woe in 12,000 B.C. is no longer accessible after the chain breaks and it falls into the sea. The Ocean Palace in 12,000 B.C. is no longer accessible after [[spoiler:Lavos awakens, destroying it and the Kingdom of Zeal]]. Also the Black Bird [[as the heroes accidentally shoot it down after recovering the Wings of Time and finding that Dalton not only installed weapons but altered the controls while failing to label the buttons.]]

* The Ultharian spaceship in ''VideoGame/CthulhuSavesTheWorld'' becomes inaccessible once you defeat its boss because it crashes into the planet. Not even a chance to revisit it in the form of a holodeck simulation which wouldn't be out of place in a silly game.
* Several areas in ''VideoGame/CosmicStarHeroine'' cannot be revisited, especially ones you visit before getting your own spaceship. Among them are the building from the opening mission, the jungle path to a lab on Rhomu (the lab itself can be revisited later), API headquarters, the UnderwaterBase on Araenu and the asteroid.



* In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', once you leave Davik's Estate upon acquiring [[GlobalAirship Ebon Hawk]], you cannot return to it (or the rest of Taris of that matter) due to the Sith razing the planet. You also cannot return to the Leviathan after breaking out from it.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', while most side worlds can be freely revisited, Therum, Peak 15, [=ExoGeni=] building and Virmire all become inaccessible once you complete your mission in these locations. That's nothing compared to the sequel where even sidequest areas can be visited only once.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV''[='=]s Monochrome Forest is only explored once, then becomes unavailable after you leave it. However, the demons that appear there can later be encountered in the Central Breakwater area, but getting there requires a GlobalAirship that can only be obtained on the Neutral path.
