* In a rare case, ''Fanfic/BackgroundPony'' has a character un-personed while still alive and well. The main character's un-personing is a curse—anypony who interacts with her will [[LaserGuidedAmnesia completely forget]] the interaction shortly after. [[spoiler:And she's not the only one with this curse… but how was she to know that?]]

* In early issues of ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}'', Mr. Sinister did this to Cyclops' estranged wife Madelyne Pryor--records were altered, people who knew her disappeared, etc. It was never clear exactly why he bothered, since Cyclops knew perfectly well that she'd existed, and the whole thing was infinitely more suspicious than a faked death would have been.

* Ever since his departure from WebVideo/GameGrumps, WebVideo/JonTron hasn't been mentioned by [[Creator/{{Egoraptor}} Arin]] or any of the new Grumps - all of whom were apparently good friends with him - in their newer videos, and almost any mention of him is done so in a roundabout way to not say his name or include his involvement. While speculation abounds as to whether he had a falling out with the rest of the cast or not, Arin's only official mention of him so far has been to say that it's not out of disrespect or to ignore his contribution, but because he feels talking about Jon on the show unintentionally drags him back to it and stops all of them from moving on.

* The first WhamEpisode in ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' can be summed up as this trope happening to one of the top players as part of what seems to be a RevealingCoverup. The webseries and novel versions make it quite clear that anything done by the player's avatar never happened, up to having a character actually say something along the lines of "[That avatar] not longer exists. Actually, it has never existed.".

* In a case of "too expensive to keep" instead of falling out with the person, many Wrestling/JesseVentura commentaries are cut from recent [=DVDs=]. That said, there actually was a falling out between Wrestling/{{WWE}} & Ventura over video game rights in 1990. The next year, Jesse sued WWE over home video royalties that were withheld from him. He won almost $900,000 in back royalties and walked away with a court decision that significantly increased his royalties for subsequent WWE video releases. When WWE began releasing WCW footage as part of compilation [=DVDs=], Jesse's commentary (unless absolutely necessary) was muted, resulting in many cases where Tony Schiavone would be heard on commentary in between periods of silence.

* On a similar note, when Creator/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 that’s besides the point.[[/note]] In their defense, ''Northern Lights'' was much more [[DarkerAndEdgier mature]] than contemporary Disney Channel Original Movies as the network didn't 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 Disney’s targeted demographic. Those who are interested will have to resort to [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes difficult means]] to track the film down.

** The NCAA effectively did this to Morehouse's men's soccer program for 2004 and 2005 after particularly egregious rules violations. Two Nigeria-born players were allowed to play despite previously having played professional soccer, and were also allowed to play before enrolling at the school. Other players were allowed to play without proper paperwork, and for a time not even the athletic department knew a soccer program even existed. The so-called "death penalty" is now rarely used due to the fallout from the only football team (SMU) to be slapped with the death penalty back in 1987, including the disbanding of the Southwest Conference. The NCAA has imposed the death penalty five times, according to TheOtherWiki, but only once on a D-I football squad (in the aforementioned [[{{Scandalgate}} SMUgate]]); however, there had been talks about slapping the death penalty on Miami (due to massive improper benefits provided by booster and convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro) and Penn State (due to a possible cover-up of Sandusky's crimes), and in 2002 they stopped short of slapping the death penalty on Alabama for using a booster to reel in a Memphis player after receiving a tip from Alabama rival Tennessee's then-coach, Phillip Fulmer.

* In 1895 The Northern Rugby Union, later to become the Main/RugbyLeague, seceded from the Rugby Football Union over the thorny issue of compensation to players who lost wages in order to play. Up to that point, Yorkshire had totally dominated the County Championship with players drawn from the coal mines and textile factories of that county, and the well-heeled amateurs in the south of England were very unhappy about this. For the next hundred years the UsefulNotes/RugbyUnion had a massive sulk, banning for life any player who had so much as enquired about changing to the, by now very different, game of Rugby League. Nobody who had ever played so much as a park kickabout game of League was permitted to sully the Union game. In the Club Room at Twickenham, HQ of the English Rugby Union, phoptographs of County Championship-winning teams had players who had transferred to League painted out. This ended in 1995 when, under pressure from leading Union countries New Zealand and South Africa, the game finally went professional with Wigan Rugby League and Bath Rugby Union teams playing each other at both games. Wigan trounced Bath at League and Bath won more closely at Union.

* The Creator/AdultSwim series ''Million Dollar Extreme Presents World Peace'' burned through their six episodes in late summer 2016 without much buzz, holding middling million-viewer ratings in a Friday night slot, but remained in contention for a second season. However, once it was found out that the ''MDE'' comedy troupe had trafficked in racist, misogynistic and homophobic humor in the past, had somehow gotten through things like a blackface sketch which had to be edited considerably by [[MoralGuardians Standards & Practices]], and eventually began to become heavily involved in the alt-right scene online and on Twitter and propagated the absurd "Pizzagate" story further, things quickly went downhill. Network stalwart Brett Gelman quit working with the network in disgust because of how he saw the network promoting the humor of ''MDE'' while turning down several woman-led projects, the network faced hostile reaction during the entire show's run from their staff, and even more S&P editing had to be done to get through the run, including the removal of subtle swastika imagery. Even the show's musical guests regretted their appearances; all but one performer/band (and that one just couldn't be found) distanced themselves from the show, repudiating the views of ''MDE'' in whole. Adult Swim washed their hands of the show in December 2016, for a short time removing all signs that it existed from its website. It returned later in the month, but the network certainly isn't doing anything to promote its existence.
