* Implied during the finale of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. The chairman of the [[TheHunter CCG]] has several files on his desk, one of which bears the picture and personal information of [[spoiler: protagonist Ken Kaneki]]. The file has been stamped with the word "ERASED", suggesting some sort of cover-up concerning his existence. In the sequel, '':Re'', Sasaki discovers that no files on the case exist.....with the exception of a single, misplaced draft report stashed deep within the archives. When he tries to find out more about the Investigator that authored the report, he is told the Investigator's cause of death has been classified and is completely inaccessible.

* Not even two months after the above Hogan example, Wrestling/JimmySnuka is now having this done to him as well. He was arrested for the death of his girlfriend in September 2015 (She died in 1983, and Jimmy Snuka was the prime suspect in her death, but no charges were filed. However, the case was never closed, and 32 years later, Snuka was finally arrested for the crime) and, much like Hulk Hogan, the WWE was quick to terminate his contract and remove any references to him from their website. This serves as a bit of an issue, as Snuka's daughter Wrestling/TaminaSnuka is currently a diva in the WWE and uses a lot of his mannerisms when competing, including his famous splash.

After the case against him was dropped in January 2017, and he passed away not long after, an article about his passing was posted on the WWE website, Repersoning him posthumously.

* The Sentry's entire origin relies on his un-person-ness being dropped. His nemesis, with the help of a few others, erased any records, knowledge or memory of the Sentry from the world, including the minds of his closest friend Reed Richards and other fellow heroes whom he had teamed up with and helped in various instrumental ways.

* Wrestling/{{Chyna}} (Joan Laurer): Thanks to a large number of reasons, such as general backstage conflict (Wrestling/ChrisJericho's second book paints her as difficult to work with), being on the bad side of the heirs to the WWE throne Wrestling/TripleH and Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon (China and HHH dated, and at some point around their break-up, HHH dated, then married, Stephanie, and Chyna was let go from the company), and her stint in pornography, WWE erased much of her existence. They'd have had more success if she didn't do so many firsts in WWE, such as first woman to hold a men's title, first female to compete in the Royal Rumble, first woman in the King of the Ring. The situation started to mend, with WWE darling Wrestling/TrishStratus and HHH saying Chyna definitely deserved a spot in the Hall of Fame, and she is featured prominently in the Triple H documentary on the formation of Wrestling/DGenerationX and their convincing Wrestling/VinceMcMahon to hire her. As of January 2015, they even included her in a WWE Vintage episode on bodyguards. After her untimely passing in 2016, [=Stephanie McMahon=] joined in stating that a Hall of Fame induction for Chyna is warranted.

** ObscurusLupa was fired rather controversially in early 2015 from the site (allegedly over being out of the house while CA management was trying to contact her), which caused her boyfriend WebVideo/{{Phelous}} and Andrew Dickman to quit in protest. Within five minutes all of their content was removed from the site (in Phelous' case, videos that dated all the way back to 2008) with the exception of a few crossover appearances. Made worse by the fact that fellow long-time contributors Lindsay Ellis, Oancitizen and Smarty also left around the same time, and were all given a "farewell" period to say their goodbyes to the site.

* 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 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.

** "And Then The Sky Was Opened" is basically this trope in a nutshell. Three men return home from a space mission and then one man starts disappearing from sight and no one remembers him. All evidence he exists (the glass he dropped, pictures) either aren't thee or don't show him. The newspaper now says 2 spacemen return instead of 3. Soon after he disappears. Then the same happens to another spaceman, the newspaper now saying 1 returned. And finally it ends with the last man disappearing when the nurse offers the room to 3 malaria patients. Even the hospital beds aren't there. It's then taken UpToEleven when the spaceship disappears.

* Even though Music/GaryGlitter was an important and significant artiste in the seventies' glam-rock scene, try finding any radio or TV station that will acknowledge this, after his convictions for child sex abuse. Glitter has effectively been airbrushed out of 1970's music history, and nearly every playing of his crowd anthem ''Rock and Roll Part 2'' in a stadium or arena is always a SuspiciouslySimilarSong so he doesn't get performance royalties from the original song.[[note]]As Glitter is credited as co-writer, he probably still gets writing royalties though.[[/note]] His name only lives on as a dubious piece of rhyming slang for "anus".

** Gram Parsons was not inducted as a member of Music/TheByrds despite being one of the band's most famous members and often being credited as the inventor of the country rock genre. The thinking behind the exclusion may have been that he would be inducted as a solo artist in due time, and the Hall was a little stricter on double inductions in the early 90s than they were later on. Despite nominations in 2002, 2004 and 2005, he hasn't made it in and hasn't been on the nomination ballot in a decade.

** Another controversy happened in the late 90s, when Music/FleetwoodMac singer and guitarist Bob Welch was the only major member of the band to not be inducted, despite him effectively being the "leader" of the band during the bridge period between their blues-based years and superstar Nicks/Buckingham era. He had a successful solo career after he left the band, and some of his biggest hits even had members of Fleetwood Mac performing on them. His relationship with the band soured in the mid-90s and for a long while, he believed Mick Fleetwood had arranged for him to be excluded from the band's Hall of Fame list of inducted members. When he finally buried the hatchet with Fleetwood, he discovered this wasn't the case at all and suspected that the Hall of Fame's board had removed him from their inductees list because they didn't like his solo music. He opined that if he had been on better terms with Fleetwood in 1998, he would have made a better case for why Welch should be in the Hall.
