* In ''The Birth Of Mewtwo'' short that accompanies ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'', it's never mentioned how Amber died. In the original radio drama it was shown that Amber had died when she was hit by a car.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} 2'', the heroes never showcase possessing any elemental powers, until the very end when they unite them to defeat the villain. It's never explained why they don't use them in any other scene, making the ending come off as an AssPull. They have actually used up all their powers in the books that the movie entirely glosses over, and can only use them in the final scene because that's how long it took for them to "refill".

* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': In the [[Literature/TheSwordOfTruth first book]], the title of ''The Book of Counted Shadows''[[note]]an in-universe book that serves as the instruction manual for the Boxes of Orden[[/note]] refers to how the boxes each cast a different number of shadows when they're in direct sunlight. In the series, the boxes display no such quality, but the book keeps its title.

* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries:'' Sinestro's yellow ring: since the [[ImaginationBasedSuperpower Green Lantern ring]] was not stated to be weak to yellow, it's not clear what exactly makes Sinestro so fearsome to other Comicbook/{{Green Lantern}}s that he could defeat so many and steal their rings.

* In ComicBook/PostCrisis continuity of Creator/DCComics, Kyle Rayner was chosen by Ganthet to be the wielder of the only surviving (at the time) Comicbook/GreenLantern ring; after Hal went mad, destroyed the Corps and killed the other Guardians - essentially because Ganthet didn't have any power to do a proper search for a worthy bearer, and Kyle was the first human he found. In the revised ComicBook/{{New 52}} continuity, we get a flashback to Kyle's early days as GL. The Corps is still around, as are the Guardians; yet Kyle was still chosen by Ganthet rather than the ring, but with no indication as to ''why''. Eventually subverted, as a major plot point of GL's New 52 era is that Kyle has a special affinity for ''all'' the energies the various Lantern Corps use; and that's suggested to be the reason Ganthet chose Kyle. It doesn't cover why Ganthet handed the ring out personally, but it does explain why Kyle specifically was the one to get it.

* ''Film/TheBigSleep'' had to [[{{Bowdlerise}} ommit any references to pornography or homosexuality]] thanks to UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode. As such, it's left unexplained what's going on in the back of Geiger's store that's so secret, what sort of blackmail material he had on Carmen, and why that one guy [[spoiler:hid Geiger's body and shot the man who killed him]]. In [[Literature/TheBigSleep the book]], the explanations are, in order: [[spoiler:it's a black market pornography business; he had nude photographs of Carmen; the guy was Geiger's lover.]]

** For instance, the scene in the first arc wherein the group plays games with Jirou during Watanagashi and then writes on his shirt as a penalty game is omitted, causing Mion's statement that she is "doing the same thing we did to Jirou" to Keiichi at the end of the first arc to no longer be ambiguous.
