* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': Each original type of Exalt (and caste of [[{{Cyborg}} Alchemicals]]) have a magical material associated with them: [[MadeOfWin Solars]] with {{Orichalcum}}, [[BarbarianHero Lunars]] with Moonsilver, [[{{Ninja}} Sidereals]] with Starmetal, and [[ElementalPowers Dragon-Blooded]] with Jade. However, two of the existing magical materials don't have a 'proper' associated type of Exalts: [[AndIMustScream Soulsteel]] and Adamant. [[{{Necromancer}} Abyssals]] make good use of Soulsteel, but it's intimated they aren't quite what was anticipated for a Soulsteel-associated Exalt.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'':
** Both House Indoril and House Dres in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' are two of the five great powers of Dunmer society, but their presence is solely on the mainland and so they aren't seen in-game (Although Indoril is strongly associated with the [[CorruptChurch Tribunal Temple]], so while not formally present, their influence is still felt.) Indoril then makes a more formal appearance in the ''Tribunal'' expansion, as Mournhold is within their territory and Almalexia is technically a member.
** House Dagoth applies historically, having been wiped out and demonized by the Tribunal as part of their effort to cover up the exact cause of Nerevar's death.
** In the second ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' expansion, it's revealed that this was the fate of, ironically, House [[spoiler:Hlaalu]], owing to their [[spoiler:strong support of the Empire]] getting them kicked off the Grand Council and turning them into scapegoats after [[spoiler: the Empire abandoned them during the Red Year and Argonian Invasion]].
** The Snow Elves, the original inhabitants of Skyrim, were seemingly wiped out in a war with the Stormcloaks (you'll never get a a straight answer about who was the agressor, but the Nordsmen, being the winners, claim that the Snow Elves waged a war of extermination against their ancestors). The Snow Elves are not ''technically'' completely gone, but have actually degenerated into the subterranean AlwaysChaoticEvil Falmer, who are at this point basically a different species, the result of the Dwemer turning the Snow Elves who turned to them for sanctuary into a blind, subservient slave class before they disappeared. There are two known surviving Snow Elves, one of whom has succumbed to vampirism.

In fact, several factions that previously had gone missing due to being pushed out by the current political balance have reemerged.

* The fifth house, Hispania, in ''{{Freelancer}}''. What actually happened was their colony ship sputtered out before it reached a habitable planet (unlike the Liberty, Kusari, Bretonia, and Rhineland colony ships). Half the colonists took to the shuttles, and landed on the planet Crete. The other half stuck with their damaged ship, reaching the planet Malta. They're now the most powerful pirate factions in the setting, the Corsairs and Outcasts respectively.
