* ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'': When it ended, it left enough plot lines aborted to fill a cemetery, including those introduced a mere '''twenty chapters''' before the ending. The biggest is everything learned about the Soul King after [[spoiler:his death,]], and his relation to the Quincy and Yhwach, [[spoiler:his son]].

* ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'': ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' is just filled with these.
** Early on, it seemed like Tatsuki Arisawa, a friend of Ichigo and Orihime, was being built up to eventually become a companion who would fight alongside the core group. However, she became OutOfFocus and LockedOutOfTheLoop once the Soul Society arc got going.

** In the spin-off ''The Ridonculous Race'', several teams that fell victims to the Ice Dancers' cheating, namely Crimson, Ennui, Emma and Kitty, wished that the BigBad duo would get their karma in a bad way. However, when the bag guys got eliminated, they barely got any karma; they were forced to watch their worst enemies (Sanders, [=MacArthur=], Geoff and Brody) win the grand prize.

** In general, there's a whole ton of plots that'll never be resolved now that the Ultimate line has been cancelled and the universe itself was destroyed during ''Comicbook/SecretWars2015''.
* Mary Jane supposedly had the OZ formula purged from her body at the end of the "Clone Saga" arc in ''Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan'', but there were still scattered hints that some of it remained. She briefly grew claws at one point during a tense argument between Peter and Comicbook/KittyPryde, and was shown having nightmares where she transformed back into the Demogoblin and killed Peter. This whole subplot was quietly dropped after a while.

* Rick Remender's second volume of ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers'' ended with Comicbook/TheVision learning a horrible secret about Comicbook/ScarletWitch and refusing to divulge it in order to spare her feelings, and the High Evolutionary claiming that his genocidal actions were meant to safeguard the world from some unspecified oncoming threat. Both plot points were dropped when the book was cancelled and relaunched with a new creative team.
* The 2003-2004 ''Comicbook/{{Venom}}'' series ended on a {{Cliffhanger}} where Venom mutated into a larger, even more monstrous form after absorbing the clone Symbiote that had bonded with Patricia. Worse still, he was shown preparing to fulfill the clone's mission to KillAllHumans at the behest of its alien masters. The next time Venom appeared, he'd returned to his classic form without any explanation, and while the clone later did resurface as Mania's Symbiote, the alien genocide plot was never resolved.

* In the StoryArc of Season 20 of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', nostalgia-powered sentient fruit called Member Berries are threatening a conspiracy that Randy Marsh eventually finds out about and teams up with Presidential nominee Mr. Garrison to stop. Unfortunately, the conclusion to this arc relied on the presumption that Hillary Clinton would win the current election. [[RealLifeWritesThePlot When Donald Trump, whom Garrison was serving as a proxy for, won instead]], the plot is abruptly stopped by Garrison and Randy brainwashed by the Member Berries. The Member Berries then get to stay in the White House and [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse nothing is done about them in the end.]]

* The anime prologue of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' features Maya being attacked by a rebel in Khura'in in the middle of a phone conversation with Phoenix. Her mobile phone is broken, and Phoenix thinks something bad has happened to her. Not actually, because Nahyuta Sahdmadhi happened to drop by and immobilize the rebel before he could do any harm to her, but Phoenix decides to go immediately to Khura'in to check up on Maya.\\\
In the game proper, this assault is never talked about. It's said that Phoenix just went there because Maya was finishing her training to be the Master of Kurain Village.

** This movie's [[StillbornFranchise poor box-office returns]] created a big one involving [[MadScientist Dr. Samuel Sterns]] and his StartOfDarkness. Though the studio was able to continue Bruce Banner's character arc with his appearance in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', the lack of direct sequels to ''The Incredible Hulk'' meant that we never got to see the fallout from [[spoiler:Sterns using Banner's gamma-irradiated blood to turn himself into the Leader]]. This plot thread was [[AllThereInTheManual eventually continued]] in the ''Fury's Big Week'' comic that was released as a prequel to ''The Avengers''. In it, [[spoiler:Sterns uses his new abilities to attack ComicBook/BlackWidow, only to end up knocked out and taken into custody by ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}.]]

** KurtBusiek's ''[[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avengers]]'' run had the team face a powerful villain named Bloodwraith. They were unable to best him, but ComicBook/ScarletWitch managed to bind him to the ruins of Slorenia, making it impossible for him to leave the country's borders. It was mentioned a few issues later that ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} was still monitoring Slorenia to make sure Bloodwraith didn't try anything funny, but Busiek ended up leaving the title before he could revisit that plot thread. The next time Slorenia appeared, absolutely no mention was made of Bloodwraith or where he'd disappeared to.
