* In the ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' series, after it became known that Krueger grows more powerful based on how much he is feared and by how many people know of him, the town of Springwood prior to the events of ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' tried to erase all knowledge of his existence and his murder spree to spare their children. But anyone who already came in contact with Freddy was put in Westin Hills Asylum and kept on Hypnocil permanently. There's even a ward for those who were put in comas from overdoses of the medication. Summarized in the [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010 remake]]: "Freddy Krueger never existed."

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' has this in the form of the [[spoiler:Gray Cowl of Nocturnal. When it was stolen from the Daedra Prince Nocturnal, she cursed the cowl to erase the identity of its bearer from history. The cowl's owner took on the identity of the thief known as the Gray Fox, and the curse was passed on each grandmaster of the Thieves Guild. The Thieves Guild questline culminates in the player stealing an Elder Scroll for the Gray Fox, who uses it to break the curse on the Cowl before passing it and the title of the guild's leader to you.]]

* 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 Main/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.

* Meta-example with ''WesternAnimation/TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat''. The ending credits give both Creator/OttoMessmer (the creator of the whole WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat franchise) and Creator/JoeOriolo (who [[WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat revived the character in the late 50's]] and kept the series alive from then on) credit as the creator of Felix the Cat, while Pat Sullivan, who owned the studio that made the original cartoons, but had virtually nothing to do with creating the character or drawing the cartoons, and falsely took credit for creating Felix in his lifetime, isn't mentioned at all.

** This continued even after the tyrant's death: [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19142_5-soviet-space-programs-that-prove-russia-was-insane.html Cosmonauts were edited out of pictures]]. There's a ConspiracyTheory making rounds that other cosmonauts in earlier space missions died in various horrifying ways and Yuri Gagarin was merely the first cosmonaut to make it back to Earth alive. It is known that one cosmonaut, Valentin Bondarenko, was killed in a training exercise in March 1961 and the Soviet government covered up his death to save face. His existence wasn't revealed until 1986.

** Shunning (see the Real Life: Religion folder) was practiced by both Karsites and Holderkin. After Karal is falsely accused of being an Imperial spy, he goes back to his room to find the servants have already begun to shun him.



* In ''Literature/TaleOfTheTroika'' by Creator/StrugatskyBrothers, the titular Troika possesses the [[ArtefactOfDoom Big Round Seal]], which is capable of fulfilling '''any''' bureucratic order. So if one uses it on an order "delete all records about XXX", then all records about XXX disappear, and will disappear again if somebody makes them. In story this is used only on a lake, but the possibility to use it on a person exists.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': After Pink Diamond's shattering, Yellow Diamond embarked on a campaign of information suppression to remove her from public consciousness. However, this is a more benign example, as Yellow Diamond did not do it out of spite, but rather to avoid having to deal with her grief.
