* The Nazis did this too: [[http://s17.postimage.org/pd1ugrmn3/hitler_str_56_max_470904_S0.jpg In this photo]], Goebbels was removed due to a falling out with the Fuhrer. Ironically, he and his wife, as seen in ''Film/{{Downfall}}'', went out the same way as did Hitler and his wife: they committed suicide, and their bodies were burned in a gas-fueled funeral pyre.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': If Smileyland is destroyed and someone is given the task of creating it again, anyone who they don't think of/don't want to be in it will be erased from existence. In Episode 105, this happens to [[TheUnseen Ursula]] when Quack Quack tries doing it (since he doesn't know her), and [[spoiler: almost happens to Kaeloo, Quack Quack and Mr. Cat when Stumpy decides to do it since he's sick of their constant mockery of him.]]

* In ''{{Anime/K}}'' : Return of Kings, it is revealed that, [[spoiler: as part of the plan to force Weismann to come down from his airship, the Green Clan did this to Tooru Hieda, the boy who's body the Colorless King stole in season 1, which is why not even Scepter 4's surveillance systems could identify the culprit in the video that shows the Colorless King in Tooru's body committing a murder.]].

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'': [[spoiler:The BigBad of the Central arc, Azami Nakiri, was banished from Tootsuki and the Nakiri family for the abuse he put his daughter Erina through. Almost everything referencing him was removed from the school (which was ''not'' a small feat -- Azami is a ''very'' accomplished chef) and those who know of him (such as Hisako's parents) refuse to speak of him. After seeing the effects his abuse had on Erina, it's not hard to see why]].

* At West Point there is a series of portraits of generals of UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution. Among them is Benedict Arnold--turned face inward. He is no longer publicly acknowledged as a former Commandant of West Point, due to his plan to surrender the fort to the British during the American Revolution. Similarly, there is a monument commemorating his victory at Saratoga that which only depicts ''his foot'' without mentioning him by name. Which becomes HarsherInHindsight when you realize that Gates taking all the credit for Arnold's actions at Saratoga was one of the many KickTheDog moments that drove Arnold to treason ''in the first place''.

(It's his foot because Arnold got shot in the lower leg and then had his horse fall on that same leg, shattering it. He spent over a year bedridden, which was when he started thinking about treason.)

* 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.
