* Happens twice in ''Film/TheTenCommandments''. First Seti chooses Moses as his heir and states his name will be on all buildings in the empire while Ramses' will be nowhere. When Moses is revealed as Hebrew, Seti reverses the situation and orders Moses' name wiped from everything and makes it illegal to speak his name.

* NorthKorea has erased the Soviet Union from the history of their country's founding. While the earliest North Korean propaganda portrayed the Soviets as paternal figures, it wouldn't last long. In 1958, Kim Il-sung decided he didn't like the Soviet Union anymore and ordered history revised so that the nation was founded by him alone. Subsequently, every pro-Soviet and pro-Stalin monument in the country was destroyed. A couple decades later, the founding of the Korean People's Army was moved from 1948 to 1932, tying it to Kim's earlier anti-Japanese guerrilla activities and erasing its Soviet origin. In 2009, North Korea amended its constitution to remove all references to communism. It wasn't until 2012, however, that the portraits of Marx and Lenin were finally removed from Kim Il-sung Square.

* 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 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 re-added in any capacity.

* 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.
