* The epilogue scene of ''Anime/{{Zegapain}}'' is set an ambiguous number of years after the final battle, with the lighthouse visited in an earlier episode now ravaged by time and reclaimed by nature. Depending on the viewer's interpretation, it can be a BittersweetEnding ([[spoiler: as Kyo started aging once he had been reconstituted as a real human being, but the time needed to restore this technology, and save the rest of mankind, might have surpassed his own lifespan]].)

* The ending to the ''ShamanKing'' manga, "Funbari No Uta," is one of these.

** Deny none of it.



* ''Literature/ThePendragonAdventure'' ends several decades in the future, where Bobby has been able to live out his life as if he had never been a traveler. Given how much the world has irrevocably changed by this point, it's not clear how this is possible.
** Well, it's kind off clear. Solara granted the wishes of the travelers, including Bobby, for them to get to live back in there homes, so it created an alternate timeline for them to live their lives in, until it was time for the traveler's to return to Solara.

** Ditto for ''Film/ThirteenGoingOnThirty'', where Jenna appears to wish herself to become a 30-year-old. She wakes up in a nice apartment, discovering that she's incredibly successful but lonely. She meets up with a guy who was her only friend in school and realizes she has feelings for him. They sleep together, but he then shuts her down, explaining that he's about to get married, and a brief rekindling of the flame is not enough to derail a long-term commitment. So... she wishes she was 13 again. She wakes up in the same closet where she locked herself after a failed party, runs out and kisses the boy. Cut to 17 years later when they're moving into their dream house.

* The CW TV series ''LifeUnexpected'' was cancelled in its 2nd season due to low ratings. To prevent ending the series without closure for the fans in an already short 2nd season, there is a random 2 year time skip at the end of the final episode, taking place after [[spoiler: Kate runs into Ryan's ex-girlfriend Julia, who it turns out '''WAS''' pregnant from her brief affair with Ryan when he and Kate were separated. Kate returns to break the news to Ryan, and suddenly a "TWO YEARS LATER" title card appears and we are at Lux's graduation, where she is ''Valedictorian'' of her class, and we are slowly revealed that Julia and Ryan are now a couple, as are Math and the radio show producer, who is now pregnant. After the speech and the group posing for a photo op, the show ends with the big reveal that Kate and Baze are finally a couple (We watch the two of them share a long passionate kiss), thus giving Lux a real family with her real mom and dad.]]
