** Then there are the servants Ivy, Margaret and Betty - though it's stated up front that they "do not come into the story much," it's more to the point to say that they don't come into the story at all. At which point it might have been better not to mention them in the first place.

* In ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'', one character's HeelRealization is spurred by a pack of Parshmen whom the Everstorm transforms into the deadly Voidbringers, proving to him that the Desolation he's been denying has, indeed, arrived. He leaves, filled with guilt, and the story jumps into the final chapter, never mentioning the Voidbringers again. Maybe the reformed villain killed them? Maybe they ran away? But why is nobody mentioning them?

* ''A Story with Details'' by Grigoriy Oster is built around multiple aversions. In the first chapter an amusement park manager starts to tell a short fairy tale to the carousel horses. The second chapter is a story about a misbehaving boy at a zoo. Then horses start asking questions about unimportant characters, like the policeman the boy threatened or the rhinos who looked at the boy disapprovingly. The following 42 chapters are the manager's answers that create more questions and more answers. When he finally finishes and leaves in the morning, one horse recalls they forgot to ask about a she-elephant with a calf, and should ask next night.

* In ''Literature/TheWildOnesMoonlightBrigade'', Basil the snake doesn't show up or is even mentioned by any of the Flealess. Which is strange, considering almost every other side character from the first novel (including Mr. Peebles, whose role was ''far'' less important compared to Basil) shows up again at least once.

* In ''[[Literature/EndersGame Ender's Shadow]]'', Bean is shown drawing up Ender's army. He decides to add a girl named Wu to his group. He mentions that she was a brilliant tactician, a great shooter, and did well in her studies, but as soon as her commander assigned her to be a toon leader, she filed for transfer and refused to play. No one knew why. In the rest of the book (and in EndersGame, which takes place at the same time), not only do they never mention her again, they even make it clear that there are no girls in Ender's Army.

* In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse this is extremely common between series due to the [[DependingOnTheAuthor varying focuses on different characters]]. It is occasionally resolved later on but just as often isn't.

* ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'':
** Early on in the novel ''The Vor Game'', Miles is assigned to Kyril Island as the new Weather Officer. The officer he is replacing has been there so long that he has developed a "nose" for predicting the weather, especially the deadly wah-wahs, which is far more accurate than the available equipment. Miles is briefly terrified that everyone else will notice a sudden drop in the accuracy of reporting when he takes over, but soon has a major confrontation with the commanding officer and is transferred off the island. Presumably the poor patsy who replaces him will be no better at predicting the weather than Miles, but the island is mentioned just once more in a later novel, a decade later in book time, and it's implied that nothing has changed there.
