* [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Vivienne]] gets this treatment early in the ''Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook'' series, as she's given a delicate excuse to leave the school and never returns. The authors admit they were just never quite sure what to ''do'' with her, given the setup.



* In the film ''CoalMinersDaughter'' Lorretta and Doolittle leave their four kids with a relative to pursue her musical career. They were not seen for the rest of the film and were only mentioned once in a {{handwave}}.

Added DiffLines:

* A wrestler leaving a territory would often lose a LoserLeavesTown match. This was done as a kayfabe way to explain why a wrestler no longer wrestles there and a way to give heat to a heel by exiling a beloved babyface or to put over a face by being the one who finally vanquished a hated heel. This was a common case when a monster heel was finally defeated for good after a feud with top face. The monster heel would then start up again in a new territory without fans knowing he had been beaten in a previous one. It's still sometimes done nowadays too although usually it's done when a wrestler is leaving for another fed, retiring, or taking time off for various reasons. Only now it's called "Loser Leaves (insert fed name here)"

* Gavin MacLeod, [[spoiler:son of Crowley, the King of Hell]] is a possible affront to the universe after being pulled out of his original timeline to be used as a bargaining chip of sorts and then... is simply asked to disappear and specifically not to mention his father or title as [[spoiler:Prince of Hell]]. When he returns three seasons later without so much as a previous mention during that time, he literally gets off a bus to tie up his storyline.

If the character doesn't return from such a way that arranging a return would be simple, this becomes a LongBusTrip. If they return once, it's TheBusCameBack. Should they start appearing infrequently, they're CommutingOnABus. If there's obvious malice involved in the character's departure, then they've been PutOnABusToHell. There's also the chance of a BusCrash or [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim dying on the bus]].

Opposite of DroppedABridgeOnHim. Compare with ChuckCunninghamSyndrome, where a character abruptly vanishes without mention. See also AbsenteeActor and WrittenInAbsence, for when a character disappears for only an episode or two.
