* ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal''
** "Den". After Norl splits up with Den during the attempt to steal the Loc-Nar from the Queen, he is never seen again. Since his master Ard ends up with the Loc-Nar, Norl presumably acquired it and returned it to him. However, he doesn't appear during the final battle between the Queen and Ard.
** "So Beautiful, So Dangerous" starts out with government officials discussing mysterious human mutations, and Dr. Anrak seems to be part of a cover-up that is later implied to involve Zeke, Edsel, and the robot. Except the mutation story is completely and utterly forgotten when said aliens abduct Dr. Anrak and Gloria. The behind-the-scenes material on disc implies that this story was [[NoPunIntended heavily]] edited from the original treatment - apparently to the point where it just stops arbitrarily instead of ending. In fact, much that went wrong with this film (particularly the inconsistent animation style, some poor writing in places, and sections that just stop or don't really make sense or were entirely left out like an intended link between Captain Sternn and B-17) can be seen as a combination of inexperience, poor planning, and just plain not enough time and money being spent on the project.

* One particularly bad example was the movie ''Film/FantasticVoyage''. It features Dr. Michaels, the villain, ''and'' the crushed sub, being left behind while the other characters go back to their normal size, despite the fact that Dr. Michaels for some reason doesn't. Isaac Asimov wrote a novelization of the film that corrects this.

* In Hallmark's 1999 adaptation of ''Film/AliceInWonderland'', Alice saves three playing cards who were about to be beheaded by the Queen of Hearts for planting white roses instead of red ones, by telling them to jump into her pocket. That's the last anyone ever hears from them. In the book she hides them in a flowerpot, leaving them to get out later by themselves once the heat had died down.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Film/ResidentEvil'' film series is very bad with this.
** Angela Ashford, the little girl who was at the center of the plot in ''Film/ResidentEvilApocalypse'', vanishes with nary a mention by the third film.
** Jill Valentine was also in the same boat as Angela until she reappeared in ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife''. However, neither she, Leon, Becky or Ada were worth being spoken about again after the BolivianArmyEnding they were given in ''Film/ResidentEvilRetribution''.
** Chris, Claire and K-Mart were captured by Umbrella at the end of ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife''. [[spoiler: Claire was later shown to have escaped in ''Film/ResidentEvilTheFinalChapter'', but she didn't bother to let anyone know what became of Chris and K-Mart.]]

* ''Film/TheMask''. Peggy Brandt, who seems to disappear from the main action towards the end. [[spoiler:In a deleted scene, her death is shown: Dorian Tyrell caught her trying to sneak off with her money, at which point he threw her into a newspaper machine. This being "The Mask," her death was cartoonish: an "extra edition" came out of the machine, printed in red ink. Peggy's visibly pained face was on the front page, along with the accompanying headline.]]

* In ''Film/ParanormalActivity 2'', the family pooch is dragged off screen and knocked unconscious; she survives, and the family takes her to the vet to recover. You never see her again or hear about her death, even in the scene set three weeks after she's left there.

** There's also the ''Black Pearl'''s "sweeps", a rank of oars which enable the ship to put on an extra burst of speed. They're used exactly once in the first film and never brought out or mentioned again.
