* ''Film/ShortCircuit 2'' didn't have Steve Guttenberg and only had a brief voice-only cameo from Ally Sheedy, despite them being the main characters of the previous film (aside from the robot, obviously). The movie instead focuses on Steve Guttenberg's Indian sidekick Ben, [[WTHCastingAgency inexplicably played by Fisher Stevens]].

** As a rule, any peripheral character introduced in a new ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' game who survives to the end has a 90% chance of ending up as this. So far there's Billy from ''0''; the aforementioned Rebecca and Barry from ''1''; Carlos and Nicholai from ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis 3]]''; possibly Steve from ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code: Veronica]]'' (his survival is implied in the UpdatedRerelease, but of course the matter was never revisited again); Sheva and Josh from ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 5]]''; Helena from ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil6 6]]''; a half-dozen more in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations Revelations]]''; the BigBad from the CG film ''[[Anime/ResidentEvilDamnation Damnation]]''; and [[spoiler:the Alex Wesker-possessed]] Natalia in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations2''. All either alive or suggested to be, many with dangling plot threads left behind. Some of them have been given mention in later titles, but -- barring any examples that rehash earlier plot points -- only Barry Burton made a second appearance in ''Revelations 2'' [[note]]not counting his cameo in ''3''[[/note]], which was released almost twenty years since the original game.

Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of ''Revelations 2'', the game had this fate seemingly befall not only Barry's daughter Moira but Natalia as well. [[spoiler:Both the regular Natalia and her Alex Wesker-possessed "Dark Natalia" identity.]]

** Rebecca finally made a return to the franchise in late 2015, not in a video game, but in of all things, as part of a theatrical production called ''Biohazard: The Stage'' [[{{Interquel}} that takes place between]] ''[=RE5=]'' and ''[=RE6=]''. She also shows up in the third CGI film, ''[[Anime/ResidentEvilVendetta Vendetta]]'', which is set between ''[=RE6=]'' and ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Vendetta RE7]]''.
