* The person who fired the shot that sparked the Wounded Knee Massacre, the bloodstained incident that effectively ended the conflict between the U.S. Government and the Plains Native Americans, is similarly unknown.

* The second generation of ''GetBackers''. They give Ban and Ginji their name, their car, and their analogy of a retrieval being like a jigsaw puzzle, but the only reason they exist is because the identity of the ''first'' generation is a major plot twist and a surprise to the cast.

* ''{{Franchise/Naruto}}'': We can clearly infer that the third Hokage had another son, who is Asuma's brother and Konohamaru's father. Now, in ''Naruto'', being related to the right people is an automatic free pass for character importance and focus; you can't be the "brother of" or "father of" without at least getting your backstory fleshed out in broad strokes. Except, that is, for this guy, who is the glaring exception. We never see his face, we never get his name, and he is never even mentioned indirectly or in passing -- not even in the otherwise comprehensive [[AllThereInTheManual databooks]].

Eventually he has the dubious honor of being mentioned in passing, unnamed, in a one-shot spin-off, after the story proper had already concluded.

** A later episode of Series/DoctorWho, "Listen", gives this to the MonsterOfTheWeek, an entity that the Doctor theorizes is the perfect hider, so much so that nothing at all is known about it. By the end of the episode [[spoiler: it is unclear if the creature even exists, or if it exists it had appeared in the episode]]

* Like the above, ''{{WesternAnimation/Shrek}}'' mentions a witch who put a curse on Fiona, causing her to [[spoiler:turn into an ogre at night]]. This sets up the entire plot of the first movie and affects her and Shrek's entire relationship, but we have absolutely no idea why she did it (unless one goes with the theory that she was [[TheChessmaster the Fairy Godmother]] trying to arrange a marriage with [[PrinceCharmless Charming]]).

* The soldier who killed [[UsefulNotes/CarolusRex Charles XII of Sweden]] as he raised his head to look over a wall at a Norwegian emplacement. It may have been a skilled Norwegian sniper, a Swedish soldier tired of his endless warmongering, his brother-in-law to pave the way for a coup or even ''[[JugglingLoadedGuns himself]]''. His body has been exhumed multiple times and analyses, but no consensus has been reached as to where the shot came from or where he was looking when he died. At any rate, his death ended the long string of wars which had ruined Sweden.

** She isn't named in the Bible, but she is named elsewhere. According to the apocryphal Book of Jubilees, [[http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/jub/jub16.htm she was Cain's sister Âwân]]. According to both the Jewish Midrash and the [[http://www.infoplease.com/dictionary/brewers/abel-cain.html Muslim tradition]], Cain and Abel both had twin sisters, and each of them was supposed to marry the other's twin. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cain_and_Abel#Motives Aclima, Cain's twin sister and Abel's promised wife, was lovelier than Abel's twin sister and Cain's promised wife]], Jumella, and Cain didn't want to agree to this arrangement. The sacrifices mentioned in the Bible are, in this version of the story, supposed to determine which one of them God deems more worthy of Aclima. After Cain murders Abel, Aclima leaves with him and becomes his wife; Jumella ends up wedding Seth...who isn't even born until after Abel dies.
