* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', all three of Shepard's backgrounds ensure that they can never go home again: if you choose Earthborn, Shepard is an orphan who grew up on the streets; if you choose Colonist, Shepard's parents were killed and the colony razed in a batarian raid; if you choose Spaceborn, Shepard has a family, but grew up on multiple space stations and colonies as they moved around with the military.

* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'': Axl Low is a cheery, goofy British guy who got ripped out of his home time and keeps skipping through time randomly. His whole mission is to find out what's wrong with him and how he can get back to his friends and his girlfriend Megumi. [[spoiler:Then in '''Xrd: Revelator'', he's hit with the TomatoInTheMirror that basically he's a sentient bundle of time magic who can erase and rewrite timelines at will, that his old timeline may not even exist anymore, and that returning to his original time will mean wiping out the world as it exists now as they're mutually exclusive. In the climax, he's faced with the choice of either returning home to Megumi and leaving this world and all his new friends to their fate, or using his powers to help Sol and being stranded in this time. [[HeroicSacrifice He decides on the latter]].]]

* 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.

* 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]].
