* Sola from ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}} Academy'' experiences a drawn-out version of this in her route. She suffers from “distortions”, episodes where parts of her body will randomly (and painfully) fade out of existence. The people who know her lose some of their memories of her whenever a distortion occurs: if she were to disappear completely, they would forget her entirely and it would be like she never existed. The plot of her route involves figuring out why this is happening and finding a way to prevent it.
** In ''Sunrider Liberation Day''’s [RE]turn mode, this is almost inevitable. [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong Kayto has been sent back in time to prevent]] [[WhamEpisode a horrible incident]] [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong that happened in the main storyline from taking place]], and if he succeeds the resulting paradox will erase him from existence. Not counting the bad endings where he dies, exactly three of [RE]turn’s [[MultipleEndings eighteen endings]] do not have Kayto getting erased.

A character seems to vanish off the face of the earth. Sometimes people [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome just disappear]], but this is [[TheSameButMore something more.]] People who should know about it aren't even sure who the person was. Photos look the same, but without them in. Their LoveInterest 's either don't exist at all, or are in love with someone else. They never existed. They're not just gone, they're Ret Gone.

* It is often debated among fans of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' whether or not Sally (Numbuh 3's granddaughter from a BadFuture) inadvertently (or even ''purposely'') prevented her own birth in "Operation: F.U.T.U.R.E." by helping to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. [[spoiler:(See clearly was not related to Numbah 4 in that timeline, and "Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W." shows the adult Wally and Kuki married.)) If true, it may count as the most heroic of {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s.

** ''ComicBook/XMen Legacy'' introduced a character named "Forget-Me-Not", a member of the X-Men whose mutant power made everyone forget he existed the second his existence drifted from their minds. (That's right, this guy is ''a member of the core team'' of mainstream Marvel, and has been so since M-Day at least; his heroic actions include fighting the Brood, acting as a soldier during the Age of X, and saving the other members from death, enslavement, and many other horrid fates.) He was used tongue-in-cheek to explain why certain bad guys tend to have something happen to their super awesome weapons at the last moment and things like that. (Why did the team luck out and escape that death trap that seemed flawless? How could they have survived those rigged explosions that were strong enough to vaporize the island? Forget-Me-Not disarmed it. He seems to be the catch-all way to describe any confusing DeusExMachina in the Mutant Books. The only one who remembered him was Xavier, who put in an "alarm clock" telepathicly to remind him of his existence and the guy took it hard when Xavier died during ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen''.

** Describes the mutant power of X-Men member [=ForgetMeNot=] pretty well. That's right, this guy is ''a member of the core team'' of mainstream Marvel, and has been so since M-Day at least; his heroic actions include fighting the Brood, acting as a soldier during the Age of X, and saving the other members from death, enslavement, and many other horrid fates countless times, but his contributions go unnoticed and uncredited due to the nature of his powers. See, his power works like this: You can talk to and interact with him normally, but the second he's out of your view, all the memory you have of him and the interaction is deleted from your memory. (There are ways to counter this, however. For instance, Xavier places a "psychic reminder" in his own mind that can keep him from forgetting his existence, but this only works once per hour.) On the plus side, this makes it quite easy for writers to explain any lapses of continuity that might arise in the mutant books where some villain or cataclysm makes a current situation unworkable; [[AuthorsSavingThrow they can just say [=ForgetMeNot=] dealt with it.]]
