* 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.

* Corporal Adrian Shephard is the protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|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/{{Half-Life 2}}'', 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.

** Given the [[ShootTheShaggyDog ending]] of the series and the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt fate]] of Earth and Humanity (and possibly all organic life) at the end of Dead Space: Awakened, it can be safely assumed that she suffered the same fate as everyone else. [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot Not that her immunity would have been helpful in any way to keep that, or even the whole plot of Dead Space 3, from happening.]]

* One was also ''very narrowly averted'' thanks to a HandWave in Golden Sun 2. Remember Babi, the old man who's life was a major plot point in the first game, and who needed you to go to Lemuria to prolong his life? Yep, he died. That's it. You hear just once in an offhand comment that he died, and nothing more is ever said about him at any other part of the game.

** The leaders of the non-playable factions in WoW often suffer this fate. Even when there is a specific gathering of the major leaders, these guys often remain absent. Notable examples are Roanuk Icemist (leader of the taunka), Danath Trollbane (leader of stromgarde), Rexxar (champion of the horde), elder torntusk (leader of the revantusk trolls), Velog Icebellow (leader of the frostborn), Arechron (leader of the kurenai) and greatmother Geyah (leader of the mag'har).

* This has been a topic of discussion since the beginning of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 3'', just where is Jun Kazama? Her son Jin's entire motivation from the game he debuted in was to avenge his mother's "death"; the problem is in fact that he actually never saw Jun dying, and only assumed that after she stayed to fight Ogre as he ran away the God had her killed, (although the wrecked and burnt surroundings from the place she was fighting was a good indication). This doubt still persists in the 6th game of the franchise by adding more uncertainty in Jin's assumption on Jun's death, and the fact that ''WordOfGod'' is deliberatel ykeeping her fate a secret for dramatic effect doesn't help.

* Mira being absent in ''VideoGame/BatenKaitosOrigins'' is explained by it being a VanishingVillage. Hassaleh being mysteriously absent from ''VideoGame/BatenKaitosEternalWingsAndTheLostOcean'' is never mentioned, explained, or even referenced.

** Also, what happened to [[spoiler: Dandy and Beauty]]? The last time we see them, we learned that [[spoiler: Beauty could sense Sissel]], then we never see them again until the post-game WhereAreTheyNow segment.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series, aside from the three [[BigBadEnsemble Prime Evils]] (Mephisto, Diablo, Baal), there are the four [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Lesser Evils]]. Two of them, Andariel and Duriel, are [[ClimaxBoss act bosses]] (Andariel for Act I, Duriel for Act II) in ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II''. The other two, Azmodan and Belial, have never actually appeared beyond small mentions in the original game's manual and a fleeting mention in in-game lore.
** They finally make appearances in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', as the bosses of Acts II (Belial) and III (Azmodan).

** In ''VideoGame/DiabloII'', Natalya the Assassin stays in Kurast, and leaves after Mephisto is defeated, with no explanation. In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', the Natalya's Vengeance item set vaguely describes her leaving assassination to become a Demon Hunter.

** And then there's ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'', which ends with [[spoiler:Link waking up in the middle of the ocean amid the wreckage of his boat, with the Wind Fish flying overhead. It's never stated if he ever managed to return to Hyrule -- ''Hyrule Historia'' even notes that he was never seen again after this.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheWitness'': Subverted. [[spoiler: The people who inhabited the Island beforehand are never brought up over the course of the game -- unless you get into the hidden areas of the mountain where it is revealed that the Island is a human-engineered LotusEaterMachine, designed to flood the senses with metaphysical thoughts to find the true purpose of existence. The previous inhabitants were the programmers who built the island.]]
