* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''
** The final season goes through this. With the show not only getting cancelled but also being given a shortened season (13 episodes rather than 20) Because it was [[ExecutiveMeddling cancelled before the season went into production]], the last five or so episodes rushed to wrap up any loose ends left over from previous two seasons, while also attempting to do some of the larger ideas they still had planned. This meant a lot of compressed storylines, a few supporting characters (such as Valerie) whose arcs never got a resolution, and the romantic subplot concerning Danny and Sam going from a slow burn to constant ShipTease moments up until their LastMinuteHookup in the finale.

* The ending of the original ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}'' due to the fact that Yukito Kishiro wrote it on what he thought would be his deathbed. When he recovered he revived the series as ''Last Order'', which mostly ignores the final volume of the original.

* Due to a desperate race between the publisher and Creator/KenAkamatsu for the copyrights, ''Anime/MahouSenseiNegima'' ended up concluding the MythArc [[GeckoEnding with all the abruptness]] of a [[TorchTheFranchiseAndRun rocket car hitting a brick wall]] right around the time the characters were seven eighths of the way through the fights at the [[DiscOneFinalDungeon Gravekeeper's Palace]]. The following quests (including the one to defeat the BigBad) took place entirely offscreen, and what few of the innumerable dangling plot threads were actually given anything resembling resolution was in an unsatisfyingly brief and vague WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue montage.

* ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R. 3]]'', especially when you consider that it was meant to wrap up the entire plot of the series. The game has a clear beginning, middle, and finale, but jumps abruptly from the middle right to the finale without any sort of build-up or transition in between.

The game has a clear beginning, middle, and finale, but jumps abruptly from the middle right to the finale without any sort of build-up or transition in between. The game basically feels like it skipped straight from the middle of the game to the final boss fight, something ''ZeroPunctuation'' noted.

Added DiffLines:

* While ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'' is not a fic that can be considered consistent or well-written, it seems to run into this trope in ''[[Franchise/HarryPotter Battle With the Witches]]''. Michael spends much of the fic trying to convince Ginny to give him her key, one of five needed to enter Dumbledore's office, only to have her be mysteriously murdered. Michael finds Ginny's key in her grave in Chapter 15, Ebony kills Harry and Ron for their keys in Chapter 16, and Ebony persuades Hermione to convert and give up her key in Chapter 17. With three chapters to go, Dumbledore's killed in Chapter 18, and the last two chapters deal with the final battle against Harry, who's [[UnexplainedRecovery inexplicably]] BackFromTheDead.

* ''[[Franchise/{{Bionicle2015}} Bionicle: The Journey to One]]'' was likely planned to go on for another season or two before Company/{{Lego}} canceled it. So the final two episodes burn through a slew of ideas they had for the following year's arc: Umarak finds the scattered pieces of the Mask of Ultimate Power within the first few minutes, the concept of a Shadow Realm which swallowed up the capital city and its citizens is introduced, and [[AssPull suddenly there exists a prophecy that tells everyone what to do]], freeing them from the burden of having to figure things out.

* Some fans feel like the second half of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''' second season falls prey to this, with a number of characters failing to get proper development despite playing integral roles in the GrandFinale (Wendy and the Author of the Journals, in particular). A decent number of loose-threads had to be concluded in post-series book ''Literature/GravityFallsJournal3''. It's generally agreed among this group that creator Alex Hirsch, who admitted to condensing the last two-thirds of a planned three season MythArc into a single season [[RealLifeWritesThePlot due to being overwhelming by the stress of being a showrunner]], should have stuck to that original plan.

** The show goes through this with the last stretch of Season Three. Because it was [[ExecutiveMeddling cancelled before the season went into production]], the last five or so episodes rushed to wrap up much of the loose ends that have been built up or hinted at from the previous two seasons. Unfortunately there were a few (mostly {{V|illainDecay}}lad and Valerie's story) that were left out...
** This can also be specifically seen with Danny and Sam's relationship. Their feelings for each other remained in the background as subtext for most of the series. During the last few episodes, the ShipTease becomes far more blatant than it was previously.

** The season three finale crams together two very ambitious stories, about the Mane Six's cutie marks being switched around and [[spoiler:Twilight becoming an alicorn]], into a single half hour. The latter had the advantage of the entire series to that point having built up to it, but the former feels very rushed and the writers needed to resort to ''two'' musical montages to make the concept workable in just two acts rather than three.
** This was once a recurring problem in adventure-based two-part season premieres or finales in the show. They spent most of the time showcasing the characterizations of the core characters (either the mane 6, their current allies, or the villain), developing the conflict, and building up to the final confrontation. When it comes to the confrontation itself, though, it's usually in the last five minutes of the second part, and so it was generally ended swiftly so that they can fit into the time limit. They finally averted this in the season four finale, which had its [[{{Pun}} key story]] aspects [[HalfArcSeason set up throughout the season]], leaving time for an epic confrontation and emotionally conclusion without it feeling rushed. The two-parters in later seasons have followed suit and have much better pacing.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' special "Powerpuff Girls Rule!" was originally an hour long, but execs had it cut down to half an hour, which is why the plot feels so rushed and a lot of characters are speaking so fast.

* This happened to a 1999 Brazilian drama named ''Brida'', a loose adaptation of a novel by Paulo Coelho. Most of the network's employees went on strike because of ''really late'' paychecks, [[CaptainObvious including the actors]]. So what did the writers do? The 52nd episode ended with [[WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue narration summarizing everything that would happen in the ending with matching character shots]].
