* Namco's ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' franchise was also Cut Short after Episodes ''I'' and ''II'' fell short of sales expectations. Originally intended to be six games produced over a decade and spread out across the PlayStation2 and what was to become the PlayStation3, it was wrapped up after only three games, with the final one ending on a non-commital SequelHook just in case it somehow sold well enough to warrant an actual ''Episode IV''. [[DownerEnding It didn't]]. ''Episode II'' is derided as a FranchiseKiller, and for good measure (it was not a very good game), but it wasn't the only factor fans like to single out.

* While not the whole anime [[CaptainObvious obviously]], a storyline that happened during the Unova saga of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' was cut short by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Said storyline involved Team Rocket searching for the [[MacGuffin Meteonite]] and was going to conclude with them clashing with Team Plasma ([[MissingEpisode the episodes were even made]]) before the tsunami occured. Because of that, the arc was never resolved and Team Plasma didn't show up in the anime until after the Unova League, and when they finally did in the Episode N arc, the two unaired episodes were [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] into having never happened for the English dub. TV Tokyo still holds the two-part arc conclusion and has maintained that they will be broadcast in Japan someday, but when that someday is no-one can say.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' never did explain what happened to Arnold's parents on their final mission, all because the show's creator couldn't agree with Nickelodeon over the necessary contract extension. Result: no extension at all. There was going to be a Jungle Movie which would have resolved practically everything - Arnold goes back to San Lorenzo to find his parents, and he probably hooks up with Helga. Sadly it never got produced. Though many a fan have petitioned to have it made and even Craig Barlett expresses his wish to come back and make it. In 2015, Nickelodeon -- on a nostalgia kick with the success of [=TeenNick=]'s The 90's Are All That/The Splat block -- announced that something resembling the Jungle Movie was in development.

Adding an omitted ending bracket to a trope link in the Star Wars The Clone Wars example.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' was canceled very suddenly despite being successful. The series under way for a sixth season and had story plans for a seventh and eighth season when Disney acquired the rights to the ''Franchise/StarWars'' franchise and ordered to finish the series, not wanting to ChannelHop the show to any of their networks as part of the acquisition. At this point multiple episodes were still in different stages of production. [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised 13 episodes were finished and composed Season 6 which aired on Netflix, 8 more were lated released on StarWars.com with rough incomplete animation, some finished scripts were also adapted into the ''Literature/DarkDisciple'' novel and a ''Son of Dathomir'' comic mini-series. Despite all this, both the last broadcast and the last released episodes serve as a fit ending for the series: one ties up Ahsoka's arc and the other ends with a philosophical conclusion about the greater role of the Jedi in the Clone Wars.

Disney did not want to ChannelHop the show to any of their networks as part of the acquisition. As a result, the producible episodes for the sixth season were uploaded as Netflix-exclusive episodes, some episode storyboards wound up adapted into other mediums (such as the ''Literature/DarkDisciple'' novel), and bits and pieces of info on WhatCouldHaveBeen have been spread around since the end. This is particularly sad as the CanonDiscontinuity ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' series it technically replaces did get a full ending that shows the Battle of Coruscant where Chancellor Palpatine was kidnapped by Grievous, setting up the opening events of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': Ran for ''four'' seasons but [[GenndyTartakovsky Genndy]] jumped ship to focus on other ventures leaving no real ending. He promised a movie to wrap up the series, but so far it's been stuck in DevelopmentHell. Instead, a comic went into publication that acts as a spiritual season 5, which leaves some hope intact.

* ''Anime/FistOfTheNorthStar'''s English dub from MangaEntertainment and Showtime Beyond covered only 36 out of 152 episodes (not including StreamlinePictures' dub of the movie). However DiscotekMedia picked up the series and released it in it's entirety subtitled-only (with only the first 36 eps bilingual). * ''Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket'''s English dub from Creator/{{Pioneer}} and Phuuz was cut short after 79 episodes (skipping ep. 3). This discounts an unrelated English dub of eps. 145 and 155 from Creator/StreamlinePictures. Only 25 of those episodes aired on Creator/AdultSwim due to low ratings with more episodes released to DVD and broadcast on G4. The DVD releases were canceled due to low sales. There was a rumor that more episodes or even ''all'' the episodes were dubbed by Phuuz, but this has never been proven true. All 80 English dub episodes (including 145 and 155) were uploaded to Hulu, but nothing else seemed to come until December 2015 when Crunchyroll posted episodes 81-155 subbed in North America, to be followed with Creator/DiscotekMedia announcing that they were going to release the entire series on DVD starting in 2016.
