* Maria and Gerald Robotnik have been dead awhile but still factor into the plot such as in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' and ''VideoGame/SonicBattle''. Their memories are very important to Shadow the Hedgehog and his motivations.

* The ''Franchise/{{Ys}}'' franchise provides a rare example where the protagonist of its games has been explicitly dead for centuries. Each installment featuring Adol Christin is an InUniverse re-telling of one of his journals, numbering in the hundreds, re-written into collected volumes by an unknown writer.

* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'':
** The ''Dead Money'' DLC features this trope prominently: two of its main characters have been dead for over two hundred years, and the present story is told almost entirely against the backdrop of what their long-dead relationship created. Via the use of carefully placed audio logs, settings, and recollections of surviving characters, they even manage to have their own complete character development and story arcs.
** The ''Honest Hearts'' DLC has Randall Dean Clark, AKA [[CrazySurvivalist the survivalists]], AKA "The Father in the Cave", a former soldier and survivalists from two hundred years ago, who's actions lead to the survival and creation of The Sorrows tribe, who now see him as their god and protector. But, his existence and life story, are only revealed through the myths The Sorrows created around him and the journal entries he left behind, in his many hideouts in the caves.

to:

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'':
** Throughout the series, many characters will only be mentioned in holotapes or journal entries, given that the entire series takes place many years [[AfterTheEnd following a nuclear apocalypse]]. Some, on the other hand, are dead on behalf of the Wasteland not being a kind place.
** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'': the Lone Wanderer's mother dies giving birth to him/her; the one scene that they are present in they can't be seen for obvious reasons - it's the [=LW's=] birth. Her presence is felt throughout the game, motivating James to complete their legacy. [[spoiler:Her favorite [[AsTheGoodBookSays Bible passage, Revelations 21:6]], is the passcode to Project Purity]].

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'': depending on which Sole Survivor the player chooses - either Nate or Nora - the other is killed early on in the prologue. Most players don't let this affect their game much for a number of reasons (chief among them being the fact that most companions are romanceable, a feature missing from earlier games).
*** Somewhere between ''3'' and ''4'', both Elder and Sarah Lyons passed away, leaving the chain of command in the hand of one Arthur Maxson. Brotherhood members will mention them occasionally, but not in a good way.
*** [=MacCready's=] wife Lucy, previously seen in ''Fallout 3'' as a child[[note]]They were ''both'' children, in case you were wondering - it's not creepy[[/note]], was killed by a Feral Ghoul several years before the game takes place. All we know of her life post-''3'' is what [=MacCready=] tells us. Similarly, Cait's abusive and alcoholic parents [[spoiler:were killed by Cait herself as soon as she bought her way out of slavery]].

* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': The Master of the Dammed was killed by Keela a long time ago, and [[AvengingTheVillain Kaila is out for her blood because of that.]]

** Aegon I The Conqueror, which is not surprising, since he lived 300 years before the start of the story.
