* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'': Probably the mother of them all as far as comics are concerned. Adrian's plan of [[spoiler:saving the world from WorldWarThree at the expense of half the population of New York]] worked, but was it the right thing to do? And because [[spoiler:Rorschach's journal]] is floating around out there, will the newfound peace last?

''The Devil Comes Back to Georgia'', a sequel of sorts to the famous ''Devil Went Down to Georgia'' by the Charlie Daniels Band. The Devil challenges Johnny to a fiddle-playing rematch. Johnny mentions that he's out of practice, since he's been focusing on fatherhood. The lyrics imply that he's too rusty to actually beat the devil again, but Johnny delivers a BadassBoast and a truly epic violin solo on par with the one he used to win the first contest. Unlike the first song, this one ends without saying who won the contest, leaving it ambiguous.

* ''TalesOfTheAbyss'' does resolve the issue with the BigBad, but what... or rather, '''who''' exactly the red-haired man is that appeared. Fans are ''still'' debating.

** There's also the fact that the party had to stop the Planet Storm at the Absorption and Radiation Gates, which was said to [[spoiler:cause all of their fonic artes and technology to stop functioning]] and was a big topic of discussion, before it was done. The ending takes place only three years after the final battle. [[spoiler:Have fonic artes and their technology weakened? Stopped completely? What were their plans on preventing or prolonging the fall's occurence? What other technology could they create to replace it?]]

Contrast HappyEnding and DownerEnding, where the conclusion is obvious, BittersweetEnding, which is ambiguous about the ''happiness'' of the resolution, but not on the events themselves, and EsotericHappyEnding, which is ostensibly happy [[FridgeLogic until the audience actually thinks about it]].

* Season 1 of ''Podcast/WithinTheWires'' ends with "Cassette #10: Horopito," which medical prison staff member Hester will mail to a cottage, meant to be a safe house for friend and escaped patient Oleta. We have no way of knowing if Oleta ever receives it (though between Side A and Side B, we hear sounds of the ocean, suggesting that she does) or if she will wait there for Hester. We are unsure if Hester will be able to successfully wipe the Institute's records to facilitate her own escape, or if they will be able to track down Oleta again.

* ''Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica'': The film ends with slavery still prevalent in 21st century America, but the revelation that [[spoiler: John Fauntroy, one of the influential white supremacists in America]], and the fact that the CSA economy is crumbling due to maintenance of slavery, means people may be beginning to seriously question the system.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/MyLittleAnimaniacs'': Due to the author not having any ideas for the climax in the final chapter, he had to take a suggestion from a reader, and virtually nothing about the BigBad is explained, including the method the ponies and Animaniacs use to defeat it.
