* In the first level of ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', Noble Team comes across a young Hungarian woman named Sára. The game bothers to name her, give a short but personal conversation between her and Jorge, and connect her to a moderately important NPC, and then she is never seen or heard from again. According to lead concept artist Issac Hannaford, she was originally intended to have a much bigger role (namely, as Noble Team's science advisor).
** Given [[DoomedByCanon what happens to Reach]], is that really surprising?
** In a series-wide example, the fate of Jun from ''Reach'' was left ambiguous; he didn't even get a mention in the 2010 reprint of ''Literature/HaloFirstStrike'', despite the fact that takes place right after he leaves to escort Dr. Halsey, one of that book's main characters. Eventually, ''Halo: Initiation'' revealed that [[spoiler:he did in fact manage to escape Reach]].

* ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' does this with several characters:
** What happened to Chet or Andre (depending on your choices) after they leave Herschel's farm?
** What happened to Lilly after the group abandoned her/she abandoned the group?
** What happens to Molly after she leaves the group?
** What became of the Save-Lot bandits?
** Or the surviving members of the St. Johns family, if you choose not to kill them?
** What happens to Christa after Clementine runs away in the first chapter of Season 2?
** Or the guys who were attacking them, for that matter?
** Where do Mike, Bonnie and Arvo go after they shoot Clementine and flee the group?
** Averted with the cancer survivor group in Season 1, who steal the boat Lee and Kenny had been hoping to use to escape. Their fates are revealed in 400 Days.
*** However, it is Played Straight at that point, because we don't see them again after Shel and Becca leave them
*** Speaking of 400 Days, we also don't find out what happened to Leland, Wyatt's friend Eddie, Nate or whichever prisoner escapes with Vince
*** The survivors from 400 Days who you helped get to the Howe's department store? Are they killed when it is overrun by zombies in Season 2? And if so, doesn't that make "saving" them pointless?

** [[spoiler:Kano]] is last seen frozen [[spoiler:by Cyber Sub-Zero]], but not shattered. He just disappears from the scenes, although apparently he did warn [[spoiler:Quan Chi of Cyber Sub-Zero]].

* Leafos' family history in ''VivaPinata'' looks like a plotline, but it never actually goes anywhere. You should, for example, be able to work out that Stardos is [[spoiler:now Dastardos]], and Leafos alludes to this... But you can't really ''do'' anything about it, or even receive further clarification beyond unlocking the diary entries as you level up. There's no way to bring the dysfunctional family back together ([[StopHelpingMe maybe you wouldn't want to...]]) no matter how good your garden is... And despite the long, involved history in the diary that seems to indicate that their problems are intrinsic to the game.

** There's also the case of Fergus Cousland in [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Origins]]. Barring one conversation choice just after the party arrives in Lothering, no mention is made of him at all until the epilogue.

* In ''TimeCrisis: Project Titan'', not only is Kantaris alive, she appears in a couple of cutscenes. She doesn't die, or for that matter fight anyone. And she has not been seen, heard, or mentioned in any Namco game since. (For that matter, does the fact that she's alive mean that Richard Miller ''failed'' his special assignment in [=TC1=]?)

* ''VideoGame/IMissTheSunrise'':
** In Episode 1, the crew encounters a Lesser with an augmented (cybernetic) leg. They note that this should be impossible, as Lesser biology is incompatible with cybernetics, and Lessers shouldn't have the resources anyway. How the augmentation happened is never explained.
** In Episode 2, Daszk is mentioned to be part of an ''Inquiry''-like peacekeeping force who left him for dead. They never appear.
** Also in Episode 2, Ral at one point says the enigmatic line, "That lacertian agrees with me." We never learn who she was referring to.
