* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Harrison Wells, aka Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse-Flash, disintegrates into nothingness when [[spoiler:his ancestor, Eddie, kills himself.]] However, since he's such an important part of the timeline, history didn't change and everyone still remembers him. A younger version of him later arrives to trouble the heroes again. [[spoiler:Barry defeats the younger version of Thawne and tries to imprison him forever, but is forced to allow him to return to the future because he became a key part of Cisco/Vibe's origin story. Cisco almost vanished from existence before Thawne was released.]]

* In ''Literature/ThreeDaysToNever'', the villains have a sorcerous ritual that can remove a person from history. Part of why they're after the MacGuffin is that with it they will be access to a more direct and less difficult method to do the same thing.

* In an unknown comic (appeared in the Swedish edition of ThePhantom): a teenage time traveler is hiding in the present day, trying to avoid futuristic robots that want to kidnap him (because he knows of their existence). When the robots find out where (or rather, when) he is, they try to zap him into their time, but they keep getting the wrong kid... and every time, everyone forgets the victim's existence, as though they never existed. The only ones who remember is the time traveler, and the normal kid protagonist (due to some {{Phlebotinum}}).

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' once faced off against a HumanoidAbomination known as the Stygian Devourer. Looking like a man in a trenchcoat with a fedora, it would not only devour a person, but also its entire existence. Defeating it would undo the effect, bringing hundreds of people back into existence.

* In ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'', Erin Winters disappears through a portal to Hell as an unintended result of her sister Shelley saving the universe. She's confident that Shelley will rescue her, but [[http://www.scarygoround.com/index.php?date=20070727 Bob Crowley tells her]] that now she's "no longer part of the universe we knew" everyone will soon forget her. Sadly, this seems to be true so far...
** After insistence from John Allison for over two years that she would never return, Erin had a print minicomic, "Erin Winters and the Bone Throne (of Bones)" and has now popped up in his new comic ''Webcomic/BadMachinery'' as a rookie journalist. She's yet to interact with anyone she knew in her old existence, though!

* Pre-Crisis, ComicBook{{Supergirl}} fought a villain named Black Flame who's plan to defeat her was to trick the heroine into ''attempting'' this. Claiming to be a descendant of Supergirl from the future, Black Flame committed a few random acts of vandalism, and then "generously" let her "ancestor" see archived recordings of the future, where she ruled as a cruel and murderous tyrant. In truth, the archives were fake, and Black Flame was a citizen of the shrunken city of Kandor; she had hoped that Supergirl would expose herself to gold kryptonite to erase her powers to prevent any descendants from having them - which, of course, would render her helpless while not getting rid of Black Flame at al. There was one flaw in the villain's plan - [[spoiler:a ''dental filling'' which Supergirl noticed, which she realized an actual descendant would not have.]]
