Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption2'': A downplayed version occurs when [[spoiler:going from the ending of the main story as Arthur to the Epilogue as John. All of Arthur's stats, weapons, clothing, equipment, and some satchel items (including valuables and documents) do transfer to John. However, Arthur's money, tonics, ingredients, provisions, materials, and horses, even those at the stable, do not]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/Neptunia'' series:
** In ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaReBirth1'', Noire joins the party for a early chapter before leaving for a while, taking her equipment with her. However there's only two things she can be equipped with that aren't unique to her, her armour and her game disc, both of which are [[SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness early-game junk]] anyway.
** ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII'' has a very fluid party that changes completely between chapters. You lose Neptune's stuff when she leaves in Z Dimension chapter, but she takes it with her to a solo interlude. Big Nep's inventory is inaccessible for most of the G Dimension chapters [[spoiler:since she's working for the villains]]. And the fours [=CPUs=] take their gear with them [[spoiler:while they're brainwashed]], which is brief but can suck if you blew your budget on the new gear available before switching to a completely different party with no warning.


* Happens about two thirds of the way through ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', wherein Snake recovers all of his equipment after a NoGearLevel sequence, except for all of his previously captured animals and collected food (including the pricelessly valuable Tsuchinoko, if you were lucky enough to find it - fortunately you can catch it again just after getting your gear back). Humorously, you can call [=EVA=] about this, and she will confess that she rifled through your pack for instant noodles, but the rest of Snake's pack was emptied by Ocelot because "he wanted to eat the same things Snake did".

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' returns items equipped by 'specific area' party members, but also unequips all abilities activated on a party member if they are removed and returned (making some boss battles a lot harder until you realize that). The game also makes use of this to add dramatic tension: [[spoiler:It is also done after the scene when Goofy is seriously knocked out and isn't selectable in the party for a period of time, feeding the temporary but dramatic insinuation he actually ''died''. Of course, we know that Disney's [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt not crazy enough to do that]], but it was still pretty convincing.]]

** Averted by Ivan in the first game; he'll take his stuff with him, but Isaac and Garet can't equip it anyway, and he returns any Djinn you gave him. The latter is because he returns in a cut-scene that requires a power he can only use in his starting class, [[DeveloperForesight which will change if he has Djinn equipped]].

** In the first ''VideoGame/Grandia1'', whenever a character permanently leaves the group, the player can find items in the storage area containing that character's weapon and magic experience. Also in the game, a different party member will leave and then return with a whole new set of equipment. The entire original set of equipment and accessories will be missing.

* ''ComicBook/ThePunisher:'' The Punisher is allowed to borrow a set of ComicBook/WarMachine armor to complete a dangerous "off the books" mission for ComicBook/NickFury. Recognizing its [[DiscOneNuke potential]] as a weapon in his one man war on crime, he decides to keep it for himself.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' avoids this problem (mostly) by allowing you to unequip {{Guest Star Party Member}}s before they leave the party. Due to a {{Good Bad Bug|s}}, you can even take advantage of this fact when [[spoiler:Gafgarion]] pulls a FaceHeelTurn; steal his equipment, and you'll get the stolen copy PLUS the copy he leaves behind for leaving your team! Too bad if a character meets FinalDeath, though...

* ''VideoGame/EvilIslands'': Make sure you've taken all the equipment you want from your party members before moving to the next island! Also, since the last mission on an island yields the most XP, which is shared among the party, you might also want to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential ensure your companions do not survive the last mission at all]].
