Did a character die between episodes, and the only reason you know is [[BusCrash because someone tells you]]? Did Godzilla just make [[TheTokyoFireball some city burn down]], only to have it [[OffscreenRebuilding rebuilt by the time the next movie comes around]]?

Here is a list of tropes where the writers decided to keep certain details offscreen.

[[index]]
* AgeCut - Its amazing how fast characters can age with movie magic.
* AnswerCut
* BehindTheBlack - Sometimes it's just less work to keep those characters out of sight.
* BottomlessBladder - Anyone ever notice that [[Series/TwentyFour Jack Bauer]] never spends one minute in a bathroom? [[{{Squick}} Even to wash his hands]]?!
* BusCrash - That character the writers PutOnABus? Think he's going to show up again in later episodes? Think again, cause the writers decided to say that he died.
