** 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.

* 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.
