* ''FamilyGuy'' did an episode where Peter, Joe, Quagmire and Brian experience a strange light on the way home from the Clam, and wake up in a hospital with total amnesia, not even remembering eachother or their own names. They soon discover that both the hospital and the town have been mysteriously abandoned, and try to piece together what happened and who they are. [[spoiler: They're actually in a simulation created by Stewie who wanted to see if Peter and Brian would naturally form a friendship with no previous history. They would.]]
** Parodied in one episode where Cleveland is trying to come up with a plot for a horror movie, and tells a story similar to the pilot for ''TheWalkingDead'', where he wakes up in an abandoned hospital, but gets sidetracked by trying to change one of the flickering fluorescent lights.

* In ''Literature/TheLangoliers'', most of the aircraft's passengers vanish, and the rest go through the plane, looking for the missing passengers.

to:

* ''TheLangoliers'' revolve around a group of people who awake on a night-time flight, only to discover that everyone else onboard have mysteriously vanished, leaving behind clothes, jewelry and even fillings and pacemakers, and the world outside turns out to be just as abandoned when they manage to land at an airport. On top of that, the world outside the plane seems to be oddly dulled, with food and drink tasting flat and stale, and the colors look washed out. It turns out the plane flew through a NegativeSpaceWedgie and became "unstuck" in time, trapping it between the past moment and the present, which is being erased by the titular Langoliers.

* ''StargateSG1'' had an episode where the team visits a settlement on a DeathWorld which is protected by an energy field, allowing for a normal society inside. However, after spending the night, the team discover that several people mysteriously disappeared overnight, and none of the settlers remember them ever existing. Turns out the energy shield is slowly losing power and shrinking, and the computer regulating it has been killing people and erasing all memory of them from the remaining population to maintain a sustainable population.



** The ''Mary Celeste'' was found off the Azores in seaworthy condition and only its lifeboat and crew missing. What happened to these is still a mystery.
* In 1587 John White set sail for England to get help for the colony of Roanoke. When he finally returned in 1590, the entire colony had vanished, with only the word "Croatoan" carved into a tree trunk. Unfortunately, this could not be investigated, and nobody knows what happened to the colony of Roanoke.

mystery (though the story has been embelished over the years).

Roanoke. While no concrete evidence have ever been found, the most accepted theory is that the colonists dismantled the colony when it seemed no help was coming, and integrated with the local indian tribes to survive.

* In the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' novel ''Dawn'', Brambleclaw and Squirrelpaw return home, but the camp is entirely deserted, and they have no idea where the Clan is; there's no sign of a fight or anything. [[TheMedic Their medicine cat]], Cinderpelt, happens to come back to retrieve some herbs from her den, and she explains that the Clan has relocated to Sunningrocks because the humans' deforestation activities had come too close to the camp.

* Used briefly but effectively in ''DevilsAdvocate'', when [[AmoralAttorney Kevin]] is invited to pay his [[{{Satan}} father]] a visit. Just to give more weight to that invitation, the entire 57th Street is rendered (or at least appears) completely empty for Kevin to walk along towards his destiny.
