* The ''AustinPowers'' films gleefully embraced this trope in its mockery of ''Film/JamesBond'' film clichés. The love interest from the first film is retconned as always having been a fembot in the second just to get rid of her, and Heather Graham's character from the second film doesn't even get a nod in the third.

* Chris Klein was the only dude from the original five guys not included in the third ''AmericanPie'' movie, ''American Wedding''. WordOfGod says they simply had nothing for him to do, so the character just wasn't included.

If the character's absence extends past the sequel to all material in the series following it, you've got ChuckCunninghamSyndrome.

* The ending of ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife'' and the start of ''Film/ResidentEvilRetribution''. Chris and Claire Redfield, characters who were from the original games, were there in the ending of RE:4 but are completely absent from RE:5. Even though both movies end and start with the same showdown on a battleship, the reverse-action in the opening scene glosses over it enough to hope you dont notice, and no-one seems to mention them again. Also a case of WhatHappenedToTheMouse
