* For most of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', Lloyd is exiled from his hometown due to a petulant proclamation by an arrogant mayor who scapegoats him for the town's problems. Admittedly, Lloyd did cause Iselia to be damaged, but it was accidental and more the fault of the Desians attacking the town after they spotted Lloyd. It's ultimately averted, since he's let back in during the game's second act, despite the mayor's protests.

** Averted toward the end of the first disc when [[spoiler:The characters must decide which side they stay on when they separate the worlds. Ultimately, this is ruled out as a solution]].

* At the beginning of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', [[PlayerCharacter the Lone Wanderer]] is living with his father, James, in the underground shelter Vault 101. However, when James leaves the Vault, the paranoid Vault Overseer tries to have the Wanderer killed, forcing him to flee into the Wasteland to find his father. Later, the Wanderer returns to the Vault to find that it's inhabitants are embroiled in a civil war over whether or not to keep the Vault locked down. If the Wanderer finds a peaceful solution, his childhood friend Amata becomes the new Overseer. However, as she explains, a lot of people still blame him for everything that went wrong. For the sake of peace in the Vault, the Wanderer is forced to leave again, this time for good.

* In ''SuikodenV'', [[spoiler:you are forced to leave home when the palace is attacked and the hero's parents are killed, and are unable to return to Sol Falena until winning every battle in the game.]] ** This is a recurring trait in the Suikoden series. The very first game has you [[spoiler: being branded as traitors to the Empire, and being forced to flee from Gregminster. After taking up arms against them and fighting their forces back for the entire game, you finally return to and invade Gregminster at the very end of the game]]. ** In II, [[spoiler: you become branded as traitor's to your home country, and upon first returning to Kyaro, are arrested. After being rescued from your imminent execution, you're unable to return there until quite late in the game, around the time when you lay siege to the country's capital]]. ** In III, [[spoiler: Hugo]] experiences this early on when [[spoiler: the Zexen Knights invade and burn down Karaya Village]]. Also implied for [[spoiler: Watari, whose ninja clan is set to kill him for abandoning them]]. ** Averted in IV. Though you are scapegoated and exiled for a crime you didn't commit early in the game, you do eventually come back. Given the circumstances of your return, it's not a very happy occasion. [[spoiler:And it's not really your homeland anyway. Ironically your original home is one of the first places you visit after you are exiled.]]

* In ''{{Terranigma}}'', Ark is literally unable to return to his home in the underworld, as the portal in the ground closed after he went to the surface. The game plays with this idea, allowing him to purchase a home in the surface world, but it only serves to heighten a sense of homesickness which the character comments on in one of the climaxes. In the end, he is finally allowed to return home... [[spoiler:Only for him to seal it away by necessity, since his home was the domain of Dark Gaia.]]

** Played with for Colonist Shepard in the third game. S/he mentions that they rebuilt Mindoir, but it wasn't the same afterwards, with his/her tone of voice indicating that it also contains too many painful memories. Shepard can go home again, s/he just doesn't want to.
