* For much of Vivien's side of things in ''Literature/TheObituaryWriter'', she refuses to believe the very likely possibility that her paramour David died during the Great San Francisco Earthquake, largely due to how he remains with her in her memories and left such an impact on her life. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for her, her search eventually reveals that he was indeed killed during said disaster]].

* Kyle Reese in ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' is mentioned frequently (as all the main characters knew/loved/are related to him except Cameron) and appears as a hallucination in one (incredibly weird) episode.

* In ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2: Sith Lords'', we have Coorta in the Peragus level. The various holocrons mention him as being a troublemaker (bringing weapons into the mining facility despite how dangerous it is) and being the driving force behind selling the Jedi for bounty money. It seems like he's being set up as a disc-one antagonist. When you finally meet Coorta, you find his dead body on the ground, and the final holocron shows him as being killed by HK-50 after he tried to escape the mining facility.
** Subversion in the first game and the MMO. You mean to tell me [[spoiler: Revan's not dead]]?!

Added DiffLines:

* In the backstory to Literature/{{Overenskommelser}} by Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt, Aurore Löwenström left her unhappy marriage to study abroad. But this meant that she also had to abandon her two young sons, and it lead to one of them (Vilhelm) developing a pathological hatred against the growing feminist movement. He also became abusive towards his wife, his children and his niece. Beatrice eventually becomes her uncle Vilhelm's favorite victim, because she reminds him so much of his mother/her grandmother. Aurore has been dead for years when the story starts, so she can never appear "on screen". But it becomes clear that her choice to abandon her sons to become independent, no matter how understandable it might be to Beatrice and plenty of modern readers, is what turned the Löwenströms into a BigScrewedUpFamily.
