* [[http://garfield.nfshost.com/1988/02/28/ This]] 1988 ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' strip has a blind date of Jon's named Gwen, who dresses as absurdly as he does on dates and finds him cute. Garfield even says "God made two of them!" Although she would have been a good recurring character, perhaps as a DistaffCounterpart of Jon, she was never mentioned again.

* Open up a mythology book. Chances are, if you're reading the [[Myth/GreekMythology Perseus]] story, you'll know that Acrisius, King of Argos, simply had bad luck when it came to having children (or at least males), and learned through the Oracle of Delphi that while he wouldn't have any luck any time soon, his daughter, Danae, would have a child that would eventually kill him. After that, everyone knows that Acrisius stuck Danae in a box and put her in the ocean, where Zeus impregnates Danae in the form of a Golden Shower, thus leading to the creation of an important hero. You never hear about Acrisius again until a long time after, especially in your text. Depending on your version, he's more or less become something of a poor man, and happens to be visiting funeral games where Perseus also happens to be playing. As Acrisius sits in the stands, a stray discus launched by Perseus strikes an unsuspecting Acrisius in the head,[[PropheciesAreAlwaysRight thus fulfilling]] [[BrickJoke the prophecy that his son would kill him.]] The presence of Acrisius itself seems to combine this trope, BrickJoke, and some sort of Chekhov's Prophecy. * In many versions of [[KingArthur Arthurian legend]], Arthur's mother has three daughters with her first husband: Morgause, Morgan le Fay, and Elaine. The first two play pivotal roles in Arthur's life, but Elaine is typically mentioned once in passing and then never heard from again.

* A two-week 1995 ''FoxTrot'' storyline had Paige getting the role of Cleopatra in the school's Anthony and Cleopatra play, (with Morton playing Anthony, of course). The story ended before the play started, with Roger noticing Paige's name in the play program. After that strip, the story suddenly ended, with no actual strips of the play being performed, and the story was never mentioned again. * In a 2010 ''FunkyWinkerbean'' storyline, the title character was involved in a near-head-on collision with a woman yaking on a cell phone. This catapulted Funky into a brief TimeTravel (or was it) arc. When we come back to the present, Funky's in the hospital with assorted injuries. Not a word was spoken, before or since, about [[FanNickname Cell Phone Lady]]. * [[http://garfield.nfshost.com/1988/02/28/ This]] 1988 ''{{Garfield}}'' strip has a blind date of Jon's named Gwen, who dresses as absurdly as he does on dates and finds him cute.

* Another example is the Anonymous Raw GM. After a month or so period where the Raw GM position consisted of Vickie Guerrero and then Wrestling/BretHart the GM position was instead given to an anonymous person who issued directives via emails sent to a laptop read by Michael Cole. This continued for a year before Triple H became WWE COO and the Anonymous Raw GM was almost immediately dropped with no resolution or even a hint as to who the GM was actually supposed to be. (Wrestling/JohnCena did lampshade the plot thread just after JohnLaurinaitis assumed power as GM, arguing that WWE should "bring back the computer.") Almost a year later, and long after anyone cared, it was eventually revealed that it was Hornswoggle, an apparent reference to when he was equally anti-climactically revealed to be Vince Macmahon's supposed long lost son.

More than a bit puzzling because per the witches' prophecy, he's destined to someday be the rightful king of Scotland, and, as he's now missing and with no living guardians, it's more than a little important that someone ''find him''. * In the epilogue to ''AngelsInAmerica'', we see Prior, Belize, Louis, and Joe's mother are all pretty chummy with each other five years after the events of the play, but Joe seems to be pretty much forgotten. * ''CyranoDeBergerac'': Did Viscount de Valvert survive his SwordFight with Cyrano at Act I Scene IV or not? The last we see about him was that his friends carried him after his defeat, and after a little mention by Roxane at Act II Scene IV, we never heard of him again.

Bianca is arrested and dragged off, and that's the last time she's seen. It's not even stated if she'll be released after Iago is ''finally'' exposed.

However near the end the author simply lost interest in continuing, abruptly ended it with Princess Celestia ''being arrested'' and called it quits without never once mentioning Molly again.
