** In ''Magic'''s Ravnica setting, this is subverted by House Dimir (at least before ''Return to Ravnica''); everyone thinks the Dimir are this, [[{{Masquerade}} but they're not.]]

* Literature/TheBible has the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. ** More specifically, these are the tribes that made up the Kingdom of Israel after a rebellion resulted in the Kingdom of Judea splitting off from it, following the death of King Solomon. The Kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Assyrians in 732 BC, and the people spread far and wide. The people of the Kingdom of Judea, which survived, managed to maintain cohesive Hebrew tradition and culture for the next 2.5 millennia despite being conquered and exiled several times, and so they got to name the other tribes as "missing". Today, many Ethiopian Jews (for example) consider themselves as -- and are often considered to be -- descendants of the Lost Tribes, and are being "reintegrated" into the modern Jewish culture. Many cultural and liturgical differences make clear the gaps that were left behind after so many centuries of dissociation.

* In the DresdenFiles, the sudden extinction of the [[spoiler:Red Court of vampires]] late in the series' run has thrown the political balance of power in the supernatural world way, way out of whack. In fact, several factions that previously had gone missing due to being pushed out by the current political balance have reemerged.

* Literature/TheHungerGames- The thirteenth district. ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' has District 13, which was completely obliterated by the Capitol when the districts tried to rebel, and remains uninhabitable. [[spoiler:At least, that's the Capitol's version of the story...]]

* The 2nd and 11th space marine legions in ''{{Warhammer 40000}}''. According to the fluff one or both was ordered destroyed by the Emperor for reasons not entirely specified, but some survivors were rolled into the Ultramarines. It's also been suggested that the reason one of the is missing is because they have the power to turn invisible and don't ''want'' to be found. There was also a lost Eldar Aspect Shrine, but as of 6th Edition it's been found again.

* Similarly, humanity collapsed long before they discovered space travel in the parallel universe found in the ''Literature/StarTrekDepartmentOfTemporalInvestigations'' novel ''Forgotten History''. And in the absence of Archer finding the lost scrolls of Surak, Vulcan is a more militant power, leading to a war between the Vulcan Protectorate and the Klingon-Andorian Compact. Eventually, the Protectorate discovers Surak's forgotten teachings and becomes more like the Federation as a result.

* ''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.

* In the ''StarTrekMyriadUniverses'' series, two of the AlternateHistory stories start with the assumption that one of the founding races of the United Federation of Planets wasn't involved. ''A Less Perfect Union'' shows a xenophobic Earth withdrawing from the Coalition of Planets due to the actions of [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Terra Prime]], leaving only Vulcan, Andor and Tellar. Humans wind up in a cold war scenario with this "Interstellar Coalition". In ''The Tears of Eridanus'', meanwhile, Vulcan never turns to logic and remains a primitive warlike culture, leaving Andor as the galvanizing force behind the formation of a Federation-equivalent.
