* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'': Nemesis traps both himself and Torquemada inside the Blitzspear to stop his nemesis from annihilating most life in the universe, which then travels through the wormhole connecting Earth to the rest of the cosmos and back again. This goes on for a billion years before Earth's star completes its life cycle and swallows the planet. The 2000 AD anniversary prog in 2016 adds a coda when Torquemada is subsequently released from his prison as the Blitzspear ascends, but Nemesis then arranges for him to be trapped again, this time ''for eternity''.

* The end of ''ComicBook/SupermanRedSon''.
** Almost [[spoiler: Most of the epilogue is the timeline over thousands of years after Superman's "departure" but it technically ends with Superman's time ship crashing back in 1918 using Siegel and Shuster's original idea that Superman was a super advanced human from the future as opposed to an alien.]]

* ''ComicBook/TheGreatPowerOfChninkel'': A serious contender for Most Distant Finale Ever as it shows how, after Bom Bom and some Tawals survived [[{{God}} O'ne's]] rain of fire by taking refuge in deep caverns, it shows how life crawled back from the brink of annihilation by evolving back from single-celled organisms into complex lifeforms over hundreds of millions of years, up until the time where the Tawals' descendants, by then looking like early hominids (AKA modern humanity's ancestors), finally go out of their underground lairs... Only to see TheMonolith that is O'ne and start worshipping it, while the narrator, actually the last of Bom Bom's descendants to remember the old stories, tearfully lament that J'on's sacrifice and the destruction of the old world was AllForNothing, as O'ne's return means that It will once again spread Its tyrannical notions of worship to what the reader now realises was EarthAllAlong.

* PeterDavid set the final issue of his 12-year-run of ''Comicbook/IncredibleHulk'' 10 years after the previous issue. A Daily Bugle [[FlashBack interview]] with [[UnreliableNarrator Rick Jones]] serves as a fitting end to both David's tenure on the title and the Hulk mythos in general.

* The final issue of ''YTheLastMan'' gives us a view of what Earth has become 60 years after the series' climax, with flashbacks to update us on how the surviving characters spent the intervening time. Somehow, the issue maintains the same dramatic tension and plot twist quantity as all the others in spite of this device.

* While it doesn't occur in the original story, the storyline that started in ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' has a finale that shows what happened in the several millenia following the comic's events. Batman (presumably) dies of old age with a very large assembly at his funeral, [[ComicBook/{{Kamandi}} the Earth floods but humanity soon manages to recover and rebuild]], mankind extends its civilization to the stars, and finally, in the [[ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes 31st century]], a frail and elderly Superman looks on proudly as futuristic superheroes fly off on a mission.

* The classic Hitchcock film ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'' ends with a tense and [[spoiler:literal cliffhanger in which Roger is desperately coaxing a frightened, dangling Eve to grab his hand so that she doesn't fall from Mount Rushmore. The camera zooms in on her terrified face as she flails to reach him, and suddenly his encouraging words turn to "Come along, Mrs. Thornhill!" and the screen wipes to show the two of them playing in bed on their honeymoon. That little wipe contains ''the resolution to the danger'' as well as their return from the mountain, any debriefing between them and the Professor, and their engagement and marriage.]]

* ''Film/WhereAreMyChildren'' ends with the Waltons in a loveless marriage after Richard Walton finds out that his wife has aborted not one, not two, but three pregnancies. The last seconds of the movie use a dissolve to skip forward a good 25 years or so to show the Waltons old and childless.

* During the True Ending of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', there's a brief flash of what appears to be [[spoiler: Venom Snake as Big Boss during the events of ''VideoGame/MetalGear1''. As well as that, echoing gunshots can be heard in the background during the beginning, implied to be coming from Solid Snake as he sneaks through Outer Heaven]].
