** 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.

** Opposing Force was developed by Gearbox Software, so Valve may not own that character or may not consider him canon. The Race X enemies haven't reappeared either.

The same could be said about Drs. Gina Cross and Colette Green in ''Half-Life: Decay''. Which is weird considering that ''Blue Shift'' was made by Gearbox and its character Barney Calhoun ''survives'' the Black Mesa incidence and the ensuing chaos and returns in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' and its two Episodes.

** The real cause is an unfortunate round of ExecutiveMeddling attempting StatusQuoIsGod. In this case, Gabriel was such a popular character that GW has introduced him into the official background lore of the game as Chapter-Master of the BloodRavens... and hence he can no longer be used in the ''Dawn of War'' games because it would mess up the lore.

* In ''[[LegoAdaptationGame Lego Batman]]'', a cutscene shows a man preparing to propose to his girlfriend. When he produces the ring, the girl screams and ducks under the table. The man is sad, not realizing that she screamed because Joker and Scarecrow were coming up from behind him in their aircraft. The man is swept up by the planes and is last seen clinging to a steeple. Did he ever get down? Did Batman rescue him? Did his girl say yes?

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'', Aifread's crew and a good portion of the player party are afflicted with the Corsair's Scurge and must drink foul-tasting medicine made from sale'tomah if they wish to live. After the party acquires it, they head back to the ship to distribute the medicine, only for Eizen to split to go chase after Zaveid and leave the party to take care of things, even though he needs to take the medicine too eventually. When the party eventually rendezvouses with him again, the whole thing isn't mentioned again, though presumably he took at some point off-screen, given what would have happened otherwise.

*** King Helseth is another character who vanishes from the lore after the events of the ''Tribunal'' expansion. He apparently remained King until at least the events of the Oblivion crisis, but there is no word on his fate afterwards. Unusual for the series which likes to give at least subtle hints as to the fate of prominent characters from past games in future ones. (Given that House Hlaalu, Helseth's Great House, was basically {{Unperson}}ed following the Red Year, as shown in ''Skyrim'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC, maybe this one isn't too unusual after all...)
*** Vivec, one of the [[PhysicalGod Tribunal deities]] of the Dunmer who acts as a SupportingLeader toward the end of the main quest, also disappears during the events of the Oblivion crisis. There are conflicting reports saying that he was taken by the Daedra, was killed by the Nerevarine, or that he escaped into Aetherius (the realm of magic).
*** The fate of [[PlayerCharacter the Nerevarine]], after leaving for Akavir as rumored in ''Oblivion''. Since the Nerevarine were cured of all the [[BodyHorror negative effects]] of Corpus, but retained the [[TheAgeless positive ones]], they very well could be [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld still be alive]] and well by the time of ''Skyrim''.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Shivering Isles'' DLC introduces Jyggalag, the Daedric Prince of Order, BigBad for the DLC, and the old [[MadGod Sheogorath]]'s [[LiteralSplitPersonalities Literally Split Personality]]. Despite being freed and split from Sheogorath, he does not appear anywhere after said DLC. There is no mention of him anywhere in ''Skyrim'' (where all 16 other Daedric Princes make an appearance) or any lore piece set in between the two works. Speculations about his fate are a staple in the Elder Scrolls lore community.

** 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 Scolls IV: Oblivion'', asking certain characters about rumors will reveal that Jiub has become a saint in Morrowind, because he drove the [[GodDamnedBats Cliff Racers]] out of Morrowind. The Dawnguard DLC for ''Skyrim'' fully 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.

The first NPC you meet in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' is Jiub, a fellow prisoner on the Imperial prison ship, who asks you your name and 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 He was even popular enough to spawn all sorts of {{Game Mod}}s which add him back into the ''Elder Scolls IV: Oblivion'', game in various roles, including as a companion. Bethesda, seeing the fan reaction, got into the act in ''Oblivion'' where asking certain characters about rumors will reveal that Jiub has become a saint in Morrowind, because he drove the [[GodDamnedBats Cliff Racers]] out of Morrowind.
