* In the ''TabletopGame/PokemonTradingCardGame'', this ended up being Kadabra's fate after ''Skyridge'' due to a lawsuit from Uri Gellar. There hasn't been a Kadabra card since, with this sometimes extending to Abra and Alakazam as well. The most egregious example of this is in ''Mysterious Treasures'', which has Abra and Alakazam, but skips over Kadabra. That set's Abra even has an attack that lets you search your deck for Alakazam and put it onto Abra, thus negating the need for a Kadabra card altogether.

* In ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen'', [[spoiler: if Elodie decides to join Togami in the "To Serve Evil" ending, then she is stricken from all Novan records and her name forbidden from ever being spoken again]].

* Something similar to the above example happened with Amazon's Kindle e-book service. The DRM system used allows Amazon to remove books that its users have already purchased. Appropriately, this actually happened -- to ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' and ''AnimalFarm''. It turned out that Amazon had not properly secured the copyright to either book. Users were refunded the purchase, but it's one of the more frightening aspects of the push from owning physical copies to accessing digital ones over the Internet.

* ''TigerAndBunny'' has a variation on it: neither [[spoiler:[[{{superhero}} Wild Tiger]]]] nor [[spoiler:[[SecretIdentity Kotetsu T. Kaburagi]]]] were stricken from record and memory, but any indication that they're the same person was. Thus, it becomes much easier for [[spoiler:Maverick to frame Kotetsu for the murder of Samantha Taylor and have him hunted down by all of his former friends, whose memories were altered to believe Kotetsu is a murderer]]. [[spoiler: Pity that he commited the mistake [[SpannerInTheWorks not deleting the memories of one of Kotetsu's bosses]]...]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': In "Battle of the Bastards", when Ramsey Bolton is defeated, Sansa Stark promises this is going to happen to him.



* Wrestling/RandySavage was this, post retirement, for unknown reasons (though there was a rumor going around the IWC that he had sex with Stephanie McMahon when she was still a minor). After his death in 2011, this ended, and in early 2015, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

** It's an especially strong punishment in Amish communities, since individual Amish often have no social connections outside the Amish community. Enough to drive the individual in question to suicide in severe cases.

** It's an especially strong punishment in Amish communities, since individual Amish often have no social connections outside the Amish community. Enough to drive the individual in question to suicide in severe cases. And, as shown in an episode of ''Genealogy Roadshow'', they even went so far as to not keep records of the one who was shunned, thus adhering to the part of this trope where all traces of their existence are erased.

* On a similar note, when DisneyChannel kicked off their 100 DCOM marathon to commemorate the release of ''Film/AdventuresInBabysitting2016'', the press release stated that their first Original Movie was ''Under Wraps'' and not ''Northern Lights'', which was excluded from the marathon altogether. The omission caused fans to question whether ''Northern Lights'' was a real DCOM to the point where TheOtherWiki removed it from their list, despite some [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5exh5m-42U sound]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g61fBB_bnMA evidence]] to the contrary.[[note]]Granted, ''Adventures in Babysitting'' would actually be the 101 DCOM, but thatís besides the point.[[/note]] In their defense, ''Northern Lights'' was much more [[DarkerAndEdgier mature]] than contemporary DCOMs as the network didnít skew exclusively to tweens back then. Since the film was [[OddballInTheSeries a deep character driven drama focusing on mental illness]], including it in the marathon probably would be jarring for Disneyís targeted demographic. Those who are interested will have to resort to [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes difficult means]] to track the film down.

** Daniel Rizzo, a.k.a. That Aussie Guy, was an early personality at ChannelAwesome who was fired after slutshaming [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick Lindsay Ellis]] during the filming of the First Anniversary Brawl and inappropriately editing pages on Channel Awesome's Wikia site, among other "issues, ill-advised actions, and other various events." As a result, Rizzo's videos were abruptly taken down from WebVideo/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses without much fanfare and the wiki only briefly mentions him.

* ''SuicideIsland'': Any attempted suicide patient who consents to being put on the titular island will be considered this by the Japanese government. The island is apparently isolated, and there seems to be little chance of getting off it in the first place, even if the characters wanted to. Furthermore, the characters find themselves handling a number of issues coming from both themselves and the island to even worry about the outside world!

* A minor case occurs in ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' when a character returned to America to find the real Eyeshield 21, everyone seemingly didn't recognize the name or refused to speak about said person. It turns out that [[spoiler: Mr Don filed charges against Yamato that didn't exist and had him expelled from Notre Dame.]]

* As of June 2016, the Website/ClosingLogoGroup has issued this edict regarding anyone in the CLG Hall of Shame, declaring that their names are never to be spoken within its boundaries again outside of the Hall of Shame itself. They did stop short of erasing every last trace of them from the CLG itself, however, as it was not only impractical, but it was also necessary to know which names should not be spoken. This measure was mainly taken to prevent their shaming from potentially crossing the line into outright cyberbullying, which is forbidden under CLG rules. The CLG Hall of Shame is itself intended purely to make it known who's unwelcome, and why; to make it onto the list, you have to have behaved very badly against the CLG, and the only single offense that guarantees automatic inclusion in the CLG Hall of Shame by itself is "desecrating the name of the Closing Logo Group", which is defined in their rulebook as a MoralEventHorizon for all intents and purposes and is characterized in a nutshell by an act of malice which is detrimental to the CLG's reputation and causes others, even within the CLG itself, to turn against or otherwise abandon the CLG.

* Porygon has become something of an Un-Pokemon as far as [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} the anime]] is concerned. The only episode to feature Porygon as "Pokemon of the week" is infamous for having triggered seizures in a number of viewers; as a result, [[BannedEpisode it was dropped from the schedules and never exported outside Japan]]. Since then, Porygon and its evolutions have, at most, been glimpsed fleetingly and have never been mentioned by any major character. Which is incredibly unfair by the way, because it was ''[[MisBlamed Pikachu]]'' that caused the seizures, [[TheScapegoat but since Porygon was the 'Mon of the week, he took all the blame]].

** Lorelei eventually met a similar fate due to using a Jynx in her only episode, "The Mandarin Island Miss Match". As of the current DVD print run, she doesn't exist in the anime at all as far as TPCI is concerned.
