* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhReshefOfDestruction'', unlike the rest of Pegasus' lackeys, the Puppeteer of Doom is only seen once near the very start of the game. He's neither seen nor mentioned after that.

* ''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 that 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/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', Ebonarm is a [[WarGod god of war]] worshiped in the Iliac Bay region and is held in high regard by the Redguards. He is a BlackKnight with an [[BladeBelowTheShoulder ebony sword fused to his right arm]] and is [[TwentyFourHourArmor never seen without his dark ebony armor]]. He is a noted adversary to most Daedric Princes and, despite being a god of war, usually appears on the battlefield to ''prevent'' bloodshed and reconcile the opposing sides. Ebonarm hasn't been mentioned in any form since ''Daggerfall'', however. He has possibly even {{Unperson}}ed in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]'', where a book from ''Daggerfall'' appears that previously mentioned him, but has all mentions of Ebonarm removed.

* A really bad case of this happens in ''Scrapland''. Through the game, three important city officials are murdered and have their "matrix" (which allow them to be resurrected) stolen, effectively removing them from existence, the goal of the protagonist is to investigate the case and find out who's responsible. However, even after you find and defeat the guy responsible for the plan, what happened to the victims's matrix isn't addressed in any way.

* 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 ([[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper 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.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has supporting characters from each tribe that help you board a Divine Beast (Teba, Sidon, Ruu, and Yunobo). They are shown to be doing well if you check up on them after clearing a Divine Beast, but they aren't heard from again afterwards and they don't even appear in the finale and the credits. You can also wind up invoking the trope on accident or on purpose if you decide to go to the FinalBoss without resolving the problems plaguing the people of Hyrule; sure, you saved the world, but what ever happened to the people and events you skipped over?


Added DiffLines:

* Done InUniverse in ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis''. At the start of the story, Cooper gets separated from the rest of the team and the audience sees him get eaten by the T-Rex. The rest of the team never learn of his fate and they don't even talk about him other than how he just disappeared. At the end of the game, Regina mentions in her report that Cooper simply went missing and they haven't heard from him since.
* ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' has Police Chief Baker, who plays a small role in the story and steps up to protect Daniel's son from monsters on day 3. It's presumed that Baker stepped down to recover from his injuries, but he's never seen or brought up again for the rest of the 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.

** A possible fate of Follows-Chalk in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' if you convince him to leave tribal life to see civilization for himself.
** Quite famously within the fandom, you never do rescue Sulik's sister, find Sulik's village, or any trace of the slaver group that kidnapped her.

* Corporal Adrian Shephard is the protagonist of ''VideoGame/HalfLife|1: Opposing Force''. At the end of the game he gets PutOnABus by the [=G-Man=], who was impressed at his survival skills. Cue ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'', and Shephard is the only character who has yet to make an appearance. Valve has recently gone on-record saying they've noticed how much of a fan-favorite he is on account of how vocal the fanbase gets about this particular mouse, so we might see him again.
