** Mark Gruenwald's final ''Captain America'' arc had Steve slowly dying, which led to him training a pair of young heroes named Jack Flag and Free Spirit to take over Stars and Stripes, the superhero hotline company he'd founded. MarkWaid then took over the book and promptly cured Steve, allowing him to get back into the action. The subplot about Cap's new proteges was dropped entirely, and Jack Flag wouldn't be seen again for roughly a decade (though he fared better than Free Spirit, who hasn't been seen ''at all'' since then).

These include new love interests for Lilly, Kat, Vera, and Stillman, Lilly receiving a job offer from the FBI, and [[spoiler:Scotty's quest for justice for his robbed and raped mother ultimately leading to his becoming accessory to the murder of the perpetrator]].

* Shocker classic ''Film/Freaks'' had a pair of reoccurring acrobat characters who kept setting up their great act as something that was going to be amazing, but we never get to see it. In the available cut of the film, their bragging feels more like padding to show off the eponymous stars' unusual traits and features.

** A number of these have come out such as the other six new laws in the Book of Oa and the Lost Star Sapphire. Made even weirder by the fact that the writer who set most of them up, Creator/GeoffJohns, is ''still on the book'' and yet shows no signs of wanting to resolve them anytime soon. It's possible ExecutiveMeddling and the Comicbook/{{New 52}} may have gotten in the way, though.

** In an ''[[Comicbook/UltimateXMen Ultimate Comics: X-Men]]'' arc following ''Ultimatum'', it was revealed that Havok was still alive and in a mental institution. He was released by Nathaniel Essex and introduced to Layla Miller, with the implication that there were plans for the boy. This plot point was never resolved, as the book ended up changing writers and eventually getting cancelled.

** Connected to this was a thread of several characters seeing "ghosts" of loved ones telling them to follow plans that made everything worse for everyone, much like Havok, with the implication that Apocalypse was the one behind it all,
and eventually getting cancelled.that he was looking for a rematch with The Phoenix (after his last appearance had him be [[CurbStompBattle Curb-stomped]] by it), along with William Stryker Junior's mind being uploaded to all the Sentinels. Then Nick Spencer left, and the incoming Brian Wood didn't even pay lip-service to any of this.

* Gerry Duggan's ''[[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]]'' run ended before the plot about Gammon, Banner's [[AIIsACrapshoot evil A.I.]], could reach any sort of meaningful resolution. Earlier in the same run, there was also {{Foreshadowing}} for a confrontation between Doc Green and Kang the Conqueror. The anticipated fight never happened.

* ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules'' had a subplot where Amadeus Cho visited his deceased family in the afterlife, only to discover that his little sister, whom he had presumed dead as well, was actually still alive. Nothing ever came of this plot point despite Cho having appeared in several other titles since the book's cancellation.

* Freya in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' appears this way as she and her relationship with Fratley was never explored. We'll never know what's his deal.



* The chronological last event to happen in ''The Compilation of VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' (besides the "[[DistantFinale 500 Years Later" coda]] featuring the older Red XIII) is Genesis Rhapsodos recovering Weiss's corpse with some vaguely defined plan in mind. This was intended to foreshadow Genesis's involvement in ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', which was to come out later and chronologically preceeded ''Dirge'', but failed to resolve (or even touch upon) what Genesis had been up to. The ending of the ''Compilation'' line - which was not unexpected, but built in - means it will never be resolved, although ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'''s FanonDisContinuity status means few care.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'':
*** At one point, Red XIII asks Tifa if his history of experimentation by Hojo means that he'll eventually go mad like the other subjects, suggesting that this might happen... [[{{Fauxshadow}} and it's never brought up again]]. Red XIII was one of the first characters added to the game and had an extensive storyline worked out for him, focusing on the results of his time as a test subject. Virtually all of it was cut mid-development, meaning that he has the least to do out of all the party members with the exception of optional character Vincent.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' lost a couple of important story elements thanks to the time slot shift for the second season and the {{Retool}} intended to prevent a ContinuityLockout on new fans. This includes an explanation for Suzaku's superhuman abilities (and any possible connection to the Geass) and the possibility of finally revealing C.C.'s name.
