* ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'':
** [[spoiler:After Chapter 63 and the restoration of Orchis to the throne of Erste, the Black Knight pretty much disappears from the plot even with events like Freesia escaping jail and kidnapping Orchis which would seem pretty relevant to her character.]]
** [[spoiler:The fates of several characters in Nalhegrande is left ambiguous as the main characters leave on the Grandcypher to rescue the Captain and so whether or not Monika, Lecia, Orchid, Strum, Drang, Baragona, Hal, Alliah, Leona, Bai Ze, Pholia, Cain, and Reinhardtzar manage to escape the Great Wall's destruction is unknown.]]

*** Hilda[=/=]Hilbert, the protagonist of [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite the previous game]], alongside Reshiram[=/=]Zekrom (depending on which version you bought) are nowhere to be found, having went missing searching for [[AntiVillain N]]. While there are subtle references to them by some characters in the game, such as N himself, Cheren and Bianca, Ghetis, and their mother, they don't seem to have stayed in contact with them in the two year TimeSkip.

** It could be thought that they will return when the planet really is overcome by tiberium, since tricking them into thinking that was the case was what caused them to arrive in the first place. However, with the later development of control over the crystal growth, such a fate might be averted.

* Discussed in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker''. Big Boss rides into the Costa Rican cloud forest on a mule, but encounters enemies who spook the mule and he runs away. While most of your support team is focused on the mission, the younger two, Paz and Chico, are more concerned with what happened to the mule. (It doesn't show up again.)

* Discussed ''Franchise/MetalGear'':
** In the backstory for ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', Solid Snake has taken up dog sledding in his retirement, and owns "fifty huskies" which he calls his family. Many a dog lover has been made very upset by the absence of dogs in every later game - they are not [[ForgottenFallenFriend even mentioned]] in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'', and in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' he has three pet chickens but no dogs. Where did they end up? Are they OK? (Some speculate that the dogs in ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' are the descendents of Snake's huskies, explaining their affection for him, but it's not clear why Snake would dump his 'family' on a nuclear disposal cleanup facility on a remote Alaskan island.)

* [[BigBad Sigma's]] "partner" who is mentioned only once in ''VideoGame/MegamanX 5'', but played a key role by building Sigma's body, apparently used to be an old comrade of X, and hates him just as much as Sigma. Since the [[PlotDerailment plot was run off the rails]] in later installments by ExecutiveMeddling, this partner is never so much as referenced ever again. According to WordOfGod, had he had his way it would have been Dr. Wily in some form or another.

* At the end of World 5 of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', [[OverlordJr Bowser Jr.]] is blasted out of his malfunctioning Boomsday Machine, and is simply never seen, heard, or mentioned again afterwards.

Obviously, he survives, given his later game appearances, but how he got back is the real question.



** Then there's Il Piantissimo. The ending of the game shows him finding the Magic Paintbrush, possibly setting up a SequelHook. He's never seen again, and Bowser Jr. has the paintbrush back in all subsequent games.

The DS version has them recycle their flying away animation while the Wii U version shows them poofing away in smoke. Eggman also mentions finding a way to bring them back under his control, so it's ambiguous if they died and he plans to revive them or are still alive in some way]].



* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'': [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]] is one of two entities in the entire series to retain his body after falling to darkness and becoming a Heartless. The other one is ''the series BigBad''. This is an amazing amount of willpower, and it's been firmly established that when a person with sufficient willpower becomes a Heartless, a Nobody is also created. However, there has been no hint of any kind that Scar's hypothetical Nobody will even ''exist'', much less become plot-relevant.

* In ''VideoGame/TheWitcher2'', Saskia was a [[spoiler: goddamn ''dragon'' disguised as a human[[/spoiler]] leading a rather effective peasant revolt. Given that, it's a little weird that she wasn't even mentioned in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3" outside of a Gwent card. One assumes that, given the massive scope of Witcher 3 even without Saskia, CD Projekt RED was [[CuttingOffTheBranches cutting off some branches.]]

*** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' you can find light helmets called Colovian Fur Hats, which presumably come from Colovia in the Imperial Province. In [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]] players can visit Colovia, but there are no Colovian Fur Hats anywhere.

** Ba'Gamnan in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' is introduced as a ruthless bounty hunter with an agenda against Balthier. The only thing he does is kidnap Penelo and chase the party through the mines and completely disappears from the story afterwards without any mention of him or his crew ever again. There is an optional boss fight against him via hunts, but unless the player actively completes hunts as they come along, it's possible to never fight him at all or even remember who he is. His appearance in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIIRevenantWings'' can surprise many people who had not fought him in his optional encounter in the previous game.



* ''VideoGame/ParasiteEveII'' has Aya make a brief mention of Daniel from the first game, but unless you know how to trigger that particular line of thought, you'd never learn about what happened to him. Likewise, none of the supporting police officers that Aya worked with previously are ever mentioned.

* ''[[MagicalVacation Magical Starsign]]'' has a pretty odd one; at the Starfall Festival event, a breather not-quite-cutscene, you can wander around and talk to the individual members of your party. The event only ends when you talk to Mokka the robot (if the player character is a girl) or Lassi the [[PettingZooPeople rabbit girl]] (if the player character is a boy}. They're just about to admit to being in love with you, but your clueless HeroicMime will be hijacked by another character and poor Lassi/Mokka will confess their feelings into thin air. Before and after that, nothing. No further acknowledgement, nothing in the epilogue. Cue a massive "Huh? Why was that even put in there?" on the player's part. It could just be part of ''Magical Starsign's'' odd humour, but the nature of the scene hints that this development has a significance the game never gives it.

*** The Seven Sages zig-zag this trope somewhat; Ghetsis maintains his role as the BigBad, Rood has undergone a HeelFaceTurn and is the figurehead leader of Old Team Plasma, Zinzolin still works with Ghetsis, and Gorm makes a cameo in the post-game. Giallo, Ryoku, and Bronius are not seen at all. However, it is likely that they simply decided to not get involved in the situation between Team Plasma.
