* Writer of ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', Kotaro Uchikoshi, stated in the Q&A on the game's official website that this was the main reason why he left so many points ambiguous. The same thing with the game's sequel, ''VirtuesLastReward''.

** Since ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is building on what was once an ExcusePlot, many of the dangling threads have opportunities to become fanfic bait. How did the RED Spy meet BLU Scout's mom? When were the teams formed? How did Silas Mann become a Horseless {{Headless Horseman}}n? Why are the teams so similar to each other? Are the BLU mercs their own people or clones of the RED team? The exact details of the merc's individual backstories (along with how or why they started working for Mann Co.

The exact details of the merc's individual backstories (along with how or why they started working for Mann Co.Co) is naturally subject to this as well, given that much is either unexplored or subject to ContinuitySnarl.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' opened a couple threads in the first season mostly from when John was still attending high school - mysterious paintings around the school, mysterious behaviour from a girl John likes, something about said girl and Wichita, as well as a girl from Carlos's gang named Chola acting mysterious - all of which appear to be forgotten so far in the second season. (Chola does briefly appear in the second season, though there's no explanation of her earlier behavior.) A lot of these dropped threads were probably due to the writers' strike severely truncating the first season; that said, there are so many of them that season 2 almost qualifies as a minor {{Retool}}.

* ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'': There are several hints throughout the game that Arcadia may have once had a seventh Black Moon, which was either destroyed or sank below the planet's surface thousands of years before the game takes place. Needless to say, it is extremely common for the Black Moon and/or it's civilization to show up in fanfics.

* ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'': The world of Arcadia is riddled with this, really, being set during the planet's Age of Discovery and thus presenting the player with a myriad of strange and mysterious bread crumbs, but the big one is the Black Moon.

* ''TheSimpsons'': Why do Milhouse's parents, Kirk and Louanne, look almost exactly alike even though they're (supposedly) related only by marriage? The key may lie in an episode showing the founding of Springfield in pioneer days, in which a fair number of the settlers did ''not'' participate because they had already broken away to found Shelbyville, which recognized a man's right to "marry his cousins." Hmmmmm...

** Good thing we have ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''. Who knew the ancient Martians were related to the [[Anime/MazingerZ Mikene Empire]], the [[Anime/BlueCometSPTLayzner Gradosians]] and the [[VoltesV Boazanians]]?
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Did anyone actually know what [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness SEELE's]] motives were until the movies came out? What about [[ManipulativeBastard Gendo's]]?

** There's also the [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Cthulhu-like]] ruler of the Dark Ocean from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' - the Ocean itself showed up a few more times during the season, and got a loose explanation in the finale as being a place where people's dark wishes come true, but the "Dark Undersea Master" is never seen or heard of again. Making matters worse is that a larger role was originally planned for the character, but meddling from Bandai saw these abandoned.

If the creators of an active work [[{{Jossed}} take a piece of Canon Fodder and develop it contrary]] to how most of the {{Fanon}} based off that piece is going, FanDumb and related swearing at the creator can easily result. If the creators go a step further and actually use the {{Fanon}}'s answer for Canon Fodder, it's AscendedFanon.

** Why is Iroh so knowledgeable about spirits? Not only can he see them when they're invisible to most people, but he's said to have journeyed in the Spirit World, and the threat to Tui the Moon Spirit is enough to [[spoiler:make him switch sides]]. Nothing else is said on the matter, though in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' [[spoiler:he reappears as a permanent resident of the Spirit World]].
