* In ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'', the withdrawal of Empress Diva'ratrika from public life after the Nidraa'chal War in the story's prologue has huge consequences for the plot, with Diva's daughters and the various clans of Chel'el'sussolth vying to fill the power gap. Especially since it's revealed early on that [[spoiler:Diva is actually dead and has been since the tail end of the war at her own daughter's hands, and when she starts having a direct effect on the plot again it's via GrandTheftMe of her servant in a last-ditch attempt to escape the confinement her daughters put her in]].

** From the ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' TV Special ''History of Trunks'', Goku's absence is greatly felt.

Gohan wears a replica of his father's gi in his memory and Bulma often talks about him, saying how he could have changed things if he had lived. A big part of the special is Bulma making the time machine to give Goku the medicine that will save his life.
*** In the same special, Piccolo's death is also a big plot point. With his final death, the Dragon Ball are forever render inert, [[KilledOffForReal making all deaths permanent]].

* ''Videogame/BlazBlue:'' Saya's disappearance in the backstory makes a significant part of the plot, such as how Ragna, her brother, is looking for her and seeking revenge on Terumi (the reason for her disappearance) or how some of the playable characters are cloned from her. Later, however, she does make a presence and she still drives the plot further [[spoiler:through being the vessel for Goddess of Death, Hades Izanami]].
