* 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.

** 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.

* When ''SamAndFuzzy'' introduced [[NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering The Commitee]] (a council consisting of representatives from all factions of The Underground that upholds TheMasquerade), one of their seats were empty - the one belonging to the Ninja Mafia, which had collapsed and disintegrated after it's entire ruling council was wiped out. Sam is eventually given the seat after he brings the current Ninja Mafia (a small for-hire group that helps private civilians with supernatural problems) back to it's crime syndicate roots (mostly by targeting the businesses of other Commitee members who he blames for getting him quarantined in The Underground).

* 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 in-game Temple faction, 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.

** In the original base set of the [=CCG=], the Scorpion were the "missing" clan, having been cast out after attempting to overthrow the Emperor as part of the backstory. The set had a few Scorpion clan characters, but they didn't become a playable faction until the first expansion.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' uses this repeatedly as a general recurring theme across the setting - sets of 13 things with one missing, leaving 12 behind, sometimes with an imperfect substitute. These sets include, just to name a few:
** Dragonmarks (missing: the Mark of Death, substituted by aberrant marks)
** Dragonmarked Houses (missing: the elven House Vol, substituted when House Thuranni split off from the elven House Phiarlan)
** Dwarven great clans (missing: Clan Noldrun, substituted by the Jhorash'tar orcs of the Mror Holds)
** Other planes of existence (missing: Xoriat, substituted by the regions of Khyber where [[SealedEvilInACan the daelkyr are imprisoned]])
** Recognized nations of Khorvaire (missing: Cyre, substituted by the unrecognized "monster nation" of Droaam)

** 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.
