* The Internet era has created a new type of Missing Episode. Increasingly, promotional web-only tie-in stories or games are used on official sites to promote a product, event, or work. Once the promotion has run its course, the official sites may disappear, along with all that tie-in material. And the relative complexity of a web-hosted multimedia work makes it difficult to just KeepCirculatingTheTapes. To take just one illustrative example, comics writer Gail Simone wrote a {{Superman}} interactive webcomic story for an official Pepsi ''SupermanReturns'' promotion. Since the Pepsi promotion ended long ago, and its site is now defunct, if you didn't read it at the time, odds are you never will.

* Almost the entirety of the original ''Webcomic/ShreddedMoose''. This is because of OldShame of the two creators and the fact it could harm the career of the artist.

* The website for PlatypusComix is missing several stories from ''Webcomic/{{Mulberry}}'', ''Webcomic/{{Keiki}}'', ''Webcomic/ScrambledEggs'', and the Variety Section. Most of them have apparently become {{Old Shame}}s for creator Peter Paltridge. Examples that should stick out to people who don't read the [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/onlyme/thelist.html list]] he wrote of all the comics he posted on the website include the first ''Mulberry'' comic, the second ''Keiki'' story[[note]]Actually, the part where the archive skips from 1 to 3 skips over more than one story[[/note]], and half of "Raiders of the Lost Arc" (one of the comics found in the Variety Section). Sometimes, he publishes books containing comics he deleted from the website.

* A lot of the original ''{{Magiversity}}'' strips were lost when DrunkDuck crashed in 2005, as the creator didn't have backups.

* A lot of Creator/DavidGonterman's old work from the days he was a big ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' fan are missing, though mostly his web comics. Among those are is the last issue of "Sonic: The Mobius Chronicles" and most of "Sailor Moon USA". His fanfics, on the other hand, are a different story.

* The rerunning of ''Webcomic/RoomiesItsWalkyJoyceAndWalky'' at [=BringBackRoomies=].com is dead-set on averting this, turning up everything from out-of-print print-only material to stuff that never made it to the public to begin with. Especially notable is the print-exclusive from the third issue of Keenspot's ''Roomies!'' comic book, which Willis accidentally neglected to put in any of the official collections and thus spent almost a decade completely unavailable.
