* Subverted in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid''. Samus can meet very friendly little animals in the game, including three monkey-like creatures and something resembling a dodo, both of which demonstrate new abilities she can do that aren't mentioned elsewhere in the game. As you escape after setting a time bomb powerful enough to blow up the entire planet, which would naturally kill them, you can take a very brief detour to the room where you initially found the Bombs and find them trapped there, where you can use your newly-acquired {{BFG}} to blast open a wall and free them. Of course, that fails to address how unintelligent animals like that escaped the explosion of the planet that occurred moments afterward. They appear in the later game ''MetroidFusion'', but no explanation is given as to how they survived.

** Subverted with Niko Bellic from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV''. While GTA V gave him a few Easter Eggs (stating that he is still alive), he never made a physical appearance. His voice actor had conflicts with Rockstar, so it is very likely that we will not see him again.

Given that his voice actor had conflicts with Rockstar, it is very difficult for Niko to reappear in any future game of the series.

** In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' Donald Love just disappears. He does get brief appearances in both [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity 80s Vice City]] and [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoLibertyCityStories 90s Liberty City]], but these take place chronologically before [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII GTA3]] (2001).
*** The last mission you "do" for him--Donald's Disappearance--is only for the purpose of showing you that he's gone.

** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' has a few. For example, several missions involve Michael opposing his daughter's involvement in a talent show. He finally relents, but unless you happen to know to tune into the in-game radio at the right time, or find the right in-game Internet posting, you may never find out if she won or not.
*** The surviving members of [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheLostAndDamned the Lost [=MC=]]] return, aside from Angus Martin. [[spoiler: [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome Lucky him]]...]]
*** Depending on the ending that you choose there are many.
*** [[spoiler: If you choose to kill Trevor, the game ends without ever resolving problems with Devon Weston who owes Franklin money and wants Michael dead.]]
*** [[spoiler: If you choose to kill Michael, the game ends without ever tying up Trevor's story - both Wei Cheng's Triads and the FIB want him dead but we never hear from them again.]]
*** [[spoiler: Both endings in which you choose to kill one of the main characters fail to resolve Franklin's plot line; Stretch is still alive and does not get any sort of retribution for betraying Lamar and Franklin.]]

** There was a rumor that he was originally supposed to be killed by crashing a plane into his building, which was removed for obvious reasons after 9/11, but this has been debunked.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': What happened to Jiub?
** In the Elder Scolls IV: Oblivion, asking certain characters about rumours will reveal that Jiub has become a saint in Morrowind. And why? Because he drove the Cliff Racers out of Morrowind. Hell yeah.
*** The Dawnguard DLC for ''Skyrim'' answers the question: Jiub was soul-trapped and killed by a Dremora during the Siege of Kvatch. How do you know this? Jiub tells you so himself in the Soul Cairn.
** Another ''Morrowind'' character that disappeared was Caius Cosades, the first major quest giver of the main quest. He was supposedly recalled to Cyrodiil during the main quest, but is not seen in ''Oblivion'' at all.
*** [[http://www.imperial-library.info/content/ken-rolstons-texts Lore texts]] written by designer/developer [[WordOfSaintPaul Ken Rolston]] seem to indicate that Caius is alive and well following the Oblivion crisis.

to:

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': What ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' franchise, with its open worlds featuring lots of [=NPCs=] will obviously raise this question with several of them. Sometimes, the developers will drop hints to what happened to Jiub?
some of these characters.
** The first NPC you meet in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' is Jiub, who is notable for being one of the few fully voiced [=NPCs=] in the game. But after having completed the tutorial, you will never see him again, causing many people to wonder where he went. In the Elder ''Elder Scolls IV: Oblivion, Oblivion'', asking certain characters about rumours rumors will reveal that Jiub has become a saint in Morrowind. And why? Because Morrowind, because he drove the [[GodDamnedBats Cliff Racers Racers]] out of Morrowind. Hell yeah.

** The fate of the Nerevarine, after leaving for Akavir as rumoured in ''Oblivion''. Since they were cured of all the [[BodyHorror negative effects]] of Corpus, but retained the [[TheAgeless positive ones]], they should [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld still be alive]] and well by the time of ''Skyrim''.
*** ...Unless the Nerevarine perished on Akavir. While he is certainly ageless, that does not exempt death. Even worse, lore dictates that the [[NightmareFuel Tsaesci of Akavir had 'ate' the native humans of the past...]] though the source for that looks ''very'' unreliable in light of later revelations on what the main source on Akaviri information was and who were part of the relevant incursion.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has Brelas, a Wood Elf maid working for the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]]. Brelas potentially plays a minor yet still prominent role during an infiltration mission, where she can end up as a DistressedDamsel. After having saved her from the Thalmor torture chambers, you'll highly likely never see her again. This is because she is programmed to go to Windhelm after her rescue, which is located on the other side of Skyrim. Because she is very weak, she'll probably die during her travels.
