* Happened twice in ** Half of "The Birth Of Mewtwo" radio drama, meant to go with ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' and later animated (though [[AdaptedOut excluding a large portion]]), revolves around Jessie's MissingMom Miyamoto and how she's been searching for Mew for twenty years. Outside of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime:drama nothing has referenced Miyamoto. She has yet to be reunited with Jessie. ** The original series conclusion to the anime was meant to be a climactic final battle between Ash and Gary... except by the time the conclusion was approaching, ExecutiveMeddling forced this all-important finale to the side and launched Ash on a perpetual journey and the show into being a LongRunner with no real conclusion in sight. Similarly, the Mewtwo movie's original trailer showed brief [[MissingTrailerScene scenes]] of a DistantFinale apparently involving an adult Misty and a suspiciously familiar-looking child, which needless to say never made it to any print version of ''Mewtwo Strikes Back''.

What's so hard about indenting properly?
* As a {{Long Runner|s}}, ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' gets this a lot, but two memorable aborted arcs include the mystery of [[KidAppealCharacter Tails]]' destiny as "[[TheChosenOne Chosen One]]" (a prophecy of him being a bigger hero than [[TheMcCoy Sonic]] or [[TheSpock Knuckles]] combined that faltered several times, due to arguments over exactly ''what'' that was supposed to mean), and the Eggman-backed Dingo invasion of the Echindas' homeland (which petered out when the story shifted to an equally-aborted arc regarding a civil war in the Dark Legion). Both stories were hyped up something fierce, but disappeared so quickly and completely that even the ''writers'' have no idea [[TheChrisCarterEffect how exactly they were supposed to end]].\\\

** A lawsuit by former ''Sonic'' writer Ken Penders for continuing to use his characters even after he left the comic meant that Archie had to write them all out -- and since Penders had created or helped create ''dozens'' of characters, this ultimately resulted in the implementation of a CosmicRetcon that cut short numerous plot lines, some of which had been building for years. In fact, the only ones that got any closure at all were Silver's [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong attempt to fix the past]] (which got [[WrapItUp quickly resolved]] pre-retcon, and then reworked into something different but similar post-retcon) and Ixis Naugus' [[TyrantTakesTheHelm reign as king]] (which is almost ridiculously resolved by him [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere running away]] immediately following the retcon).

* ''WebVideo/TheBenHeckShow'' has quite a number of multi-part episodes that were aborted throughout the show's run (usually when RealityEnsues and Ben realizes that the project is actually undoable or infeasible). For example, episodes centering around the designing of the Pinball/AmericasMostHaunted machine prototype, pretty much only ran until the first half of the design stage of the machine[[note]]However, coverage continued on Ben's personal channel, albeit without going into the details of the design as he usually does on the show[[/note]], and the "GameBrain" modular console project has became this as of late 2015. The tendency of this happening was lampshaded in the 2015 Halloween episode, where the "Ghost of Unfinished Projects" appears and haunts the workshop in the prologue.

** Series 7 kickstarted a storyline where the TARDIS refused to co-operate with Clara Oswald. When quizzed in 2014, Steven Moffat teased, "It's almost like it's all building to something... Oh! What's this I'm writing today?" The last we heard of it would be a throwaway line in Kill the Moon.

* A rather odd example in Creator/TomClancy-verse video game franchises: ''VideoGame/RainbowSix Vegas'' and ''VideoGame/{{HAWX}} 2'' gave hints that the conflicts in those games were being masterminded by some kind of ultra-powerful international organization hellbent on destroying the United States. ''VideoGame/SplinterCell Conviction'' then revealed the existence of an AncientConspiracy called "Megiddo" that had corrupted that game's BigBad and convinced to betray his country and that they were bigger than nations and no one could stand against them. But after ''Conviction's'' reveal, Creator/UbiSoft apparently decided to discard this plot device: ''VideoGame/GhostRecon Future Soldier'' (which took place in the same war as ''HAWX 2'') showed that the instigators of that conflict were an arms trafficking group called "Raven's Rock", and ''Splinter Cell Blacklist'' never mentioned Megiddo at all (though it may have brought the idea back vaguely, as the BigBad of that game mentions he is being backed by 12 nations in the ending). ''Rainbow Six: Siege'' and ''Ghost Recon: Wildlands'' are multiplayer shooters with [[ExcusePlot not much plot]], and ''VideoGame/TheDivision'' has a completely different story.
