* Late in his life, Eugene O'Neill began work on two massive drama cycles: ''A Tale of Possessors Self-Dispossessed'', which was supposed to have as many as eleven plays, and ''By Way of Obit'', which would consist of eight one-act monologue plays. He only managed to complete one play in each cycle, ''A Touch of the Poet'' from the former (the fifth play out of the projected eleven) and ''Hughie'' from the latter, before illness prevented further writing (though he did supervise the 1946 premiere of ''The Iceman Cometh''). All the incomplete plays were destroyed, with the exception of ''More Stately Mansions'' (the sequel to ''A Touch of the Poet''), which survived in draft form.

Moving to Posthumous Credit (and please don't speculate)
* Jill Clayburgh died six months before ''Film/{{Bridesmaids}}'' opened so the planned sequel that is in the works will most likely write out Annie's mother (who played a major supporting role in the first film).

** Hoffman's role in ''Mockingjay, Part 2'' was completed by a digital double, and ''Happyish'' ultimately continued with Steve Coogan in the role meant for Hoffman. It lasted for a single season of ten episodes broadcast in 2015. The fate of ''Ezekiel Moss' remains uncertain.

modded eyes wide shut a tad
This can also happen with individuals who play a major role in creating a group work; for instance, actors or directors. In any case, it gets to be pretty sad that so many people lose their jobs because of one person's death, but if the work was good enough it's likely that those who worked on it won't have too much trouble finding another job.

** Previously, Kubrick died just five days after showing ''Film/EyesWideShut'' to WarnerBros. Of course the film was completed, and its release would take place four months later, but who knows if the notorious ControlFreak wouldn't tamper it a bit more.

* It's said that this trope was the reason why ''Anime/PokemonGenesectAndTheLegendAwakened'' featured a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute different Mewtwo]] than the one from ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie''. The director of the first movie had passed on and fearing that they would [[CharacterDerailment ruin Mewtwo's characterization]], they instead chose to create their own Mewtwo in which they could apply their own characterization to. Unfortunately, this did not go well with fans of the anime.

* Music/KeithWhitley died of alcohol poisoning at age 34 in 1989, three months before the release of his most successful album, ''I Wonder Do You Think of Me''. This album produced #1 hits in its title track and "It Ain't Nothin'", plus the Top 3 hit "I'm Over You". After that, he charted the Top 20 duet with his widow Lorrie Morgan on "Til a Tear Becomes a Rose", which appeared on a GreatestHitsAlbum. RCA Records released ''Kentucky Bluebird'' in 1991, which included several unfinished demos fitted with new instrumentation and other previously-unreleased tidbits ranging from already-finished songs to ''Radio/AmericanCountryCountdown'' interviews. Two of the songs on this album, "Somebody's Doing Me Right" and "Brotherly Love" made the charts, with the latter (a duet with Earl Thomas Conley) going to #1 on ''Radio & Records''. It was followed in 1994 with a tribute album featuring various artists' covers of Keith's songs (most notably [[Music/AlisonKraussAndUnionStation Alison Krauss]]' cover of "When You Say Nothing at All", which was a Top 5 hit), and a couple other previously-unreleased tracks, including a PosthumousCollaboration with Morgan. A year later, the same label released ''Wherever You Are Tonight'', also composed of demos with new instrumentation dubbed in.

* The day before Richey Edwards, lyricist and driving force of the {{Manic Street Preachers}} was due to fly to America to promote the band (and potentially crack the market) he vanished, with [[DrivenToSuicide all signs showing that he jumped off a bridge]], being declared legally dead 13 years later. Although the rest of the band went on as a three piece and still perform to this day, they acknowledge that they have never reached the [[MagnumOpus creative apex]] of ''The Holy Bible'', the album released six months before Richey's death and considered a [[NightmareFuel reflection of his mental state at the time]].

* On January 23rd 2014, Creator/JewWario of ''WebVideo/YouCanPlayThis'' committed suicide, as confirmed by his wife on Facebook. This did not, however, end up affecting a collaboration he'd been doing with WebVideo/ThatDudeInTheSuede and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] on reviewing the ''Film/{{Pokemon}}'' movies, as he'd already planned on leaving the group at the beginning of the ''Anime/Pokemon4Ever'' review, and had already recorded his exit before his death. The scene was left in the video along with an explanation of the circumstances.
