* The Nazis' "Night And Fog" (''Nacht und Nebel'') decree.

* {{Wikipedia}} has done this to subjects [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability not considered "notable" enough to justify having an article]] about it. In some cases, fans of that particular subject have incessantly tried to recreate deleted articles on non-notable subjects so much that Wikipedia admins have stepped up efforts to protect the deleted articles from recreation. High-profile examples of this include WebVideo/TheTourettesGuy, WebAnimation/YouTubePoop and the WebVideo/AngryGermanKid.

* Being declared outlaw in the medieval age and the Old West meant literally being outside the law, including all the protections ordinarily granted -- you could be captured, tortured, robbed, killed, whatever with impunity.

* Benjamin Cardozo (1870-1938) was a New York judge appointed to the Supreme Court by President UsefulNotes/HerbertHoover in 1932. He and his family were Sephardic Jews, making him not only the second Jew to serve as a Supreme Court justice,[[note]]after Louis Brandeis, an Ashkenazi Jew[[/note]] but also the first Hispanic justice. But since the term "Hispanic" was not used to refer to people during Cardozo's lifetime, and since Cardozo was Portuguese (as opposed to Spanish) and white, [[LatinoIsBrown he does not fit current perceptions of what a Hispanic-American is]]. [[note]] "Hispanic," distinct from "Latino," refers to any person of any race who can trace their ancestry back to Europe's Iberian Peninsula; such a person may be Portuguese, Catalan, Gallego or Basque instead of Spanish.]] [[/note]] As such, when President UsefulNotes/BarackObama named a Puerto Rican woman, Sonia Sotomayor, to the Court in 2009, ''she'' was acknowledged the first Hispanic justice, effectively erasing Cardozo's existence, at least as a Hispanic-American. To be fair, however, Cardozo wouldn't be terribly miffed; he considered his Jewish identity higher-priority than his Portuguese one, and in any case fair-skinned Latinos were in his day simply considered white.

* Even on ThisVeryWiki we've experienced this with the Pantheon/TropePantheon. You see, among the "undesirables" like The Fallen, there used to be a house called the disgraces, characters from media that are generally disliked ([[{{Literature/Twilight}} Bella and Edward]], [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffon]], ect. ect.) who championed tropes filed under the ScrappyIndex. Unfortunately after flame wars and vitriol, WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings set in and the entire house was destroyed and every mention of the disgraces or any stories related to them were scrubbed clean, which had far-sweeping effects since otherwise beloved gods had profiles made up mostly of abusing the them (which was part of the issue). While you can still find some of the least controversial disgraces in other houses, the most controversial (like the three mention) are PersonaNonGrata to ever being added in any capacity.

''Damnatio memoriae'': the systematic removal of all evidence of a character's existence, either through mundane conspiracy or a little bit of AppliedPhlebotinum (e.g., LaserGuidedAmnesia). The purposes for doing so vary. This is more commonly done in enclosed or isolated areas, where it's easier to track evidence. This can lead to characters [[PullTheThread tracking the shreds of evidence]] the hiders left behind. Often any shred of evidence they find will [[ItWasHereISwear disappear]] when they [[HaveYouToldAnyoneElse show someone]]. If they dig too deep or get too involved in their search, [[HeKnowsTooMuch there's always the danger that they too will disappear depending on the circumstances.]]

In RealLife, this practice is called ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damnatio_memoriae Damnatio Memoriae,]]'' which is [[AltumVidetur Latin]] for "damnation of memory", and was done by the ancient Romans. It often relies on the fact that History is WrittenByTheWinners, and of course, the winners would always like to remove evidence of opposition against their otherwise tyrannical rule as a warning for others and to perpetuate their power. It is also done for other purposes, such as literally condemning questionable acts done by the person in his lifetime to deter possible future offenders.

This effect isn't always someone's deliberate decision. History is largely reconstructed from the records of the time, and when those records do not exist or get destroyed, history will have gaps of information. For example, ancient times, when very few people wrote, and most documents are now lost (paper, papyrus and similar stuff does not last forever). Another typical example is the people that were largely ignored during their lifetime and did something that gave them a place in history, as the records about an average joe are fewer and harder to locate than those of public figures. A man whose historicity is very complicated is Jesus, see [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus Historicity of Jesus]] in the other wiki (which is, in short terms, what do we know about Jesus, ''besides'' the things written in the Bible?)
