* More of a distant penultimate episode since it aired right before the real final episode, but the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Act Your Age" is about a post-high school Phineas looking for a college and also finally {{subvert|edTrope}}ing ObliviousToLove and realizing Isabella's love for him, ultimately ending with them going to the same college together.

** ''Transformers: Regeneration One'', a sequel to the [[ComicBook/TheTransformers original Marvel series]], had the war come to an end thanks to the [[EldritchAbomination dark Matrix creature]] consuming much of the population of Cybertron and rendering it uninhabitable; with only three Decepticons known to have survived, they renounced war and helped the remaining Autobots spread peace throughout the universe for their remaining days. Untold eons later, the last surviving Transformer, [[TheChosenOne Rodimus Prime]], returns to Cybertron to die, with the energy form his Matrix dissipating into the planet, restoring it and causing the long-dormant Primordials to be reborn ad the newest generation of Cybertronians.
