** Some shopping malls had basement levels that, if anything, usually hosted only tenants such as a food court, theater, or arcade. In some cases, the space would simply be sealed off to the public, with elevators and escalators blocking it off.
** Sometimes, an underperforming department store with more than one level will consolidate to just one or two floors to lessen maintenance. In such cases, the elevators/escalators will be blocked off from public use. This is commonly seen with Dillard's, which often downgrades lower-performing stores to smaller-format "clearance" stores before closing them, but it has also been increasingly common with Sears. In some cases, the unused portion of the store will get sold off to another retailer entirely.

* A good example exists in eastern Connecticut for a freeway that was never completed. Originally, I-84 was slated to run east from Hartford to Providence, but plans were scuttled over environmental concerns. The would-be routing has a great deal of evidence, most notable in I-384, a short stub bypassing Manchester to the south. Originally, I-384 actually was signed as I-84, but after the plans into Rhode Island were scuttled, the I-84 desgination was shifted to the north, supplanting the short I-86 into Sturbridge, MA. Another piece of the never-built I-84 exists as a freeway bypass of Willimantic, CT, which bears the US-6 desgination and has obvious tie-ins at either end for further expansion. Finally, the US-6/I-295 exit west of Providence has an obvious stub where I-84 would've fit in, and the ramp that would have gone from I-295 northbound to I-84 westbound is now just a redundant loop that allows northbound travelers to immediately flip back around to southbound I-295 instead.

* Vanellope von Schweetz in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' is a character in the racing game ''Sugar Rush'', and desires to participate in the random roster races that set the starting lineup for the next day's gameplay, but she, her kart and her track were left in an incomplete state. This also prevents her from leaving her game to visit others like everyone else can. [[spoiler:That's all because King Candy (AKA Turbo) forcefully dummied her out after earlier getting his own game ''Turbo Time'' and another racing game ''Roadblasters'' unplugged by use of insane game jumping.]] Other racers refer to Vanellope as a "glitch". [[spoiler:At the end of the movie, her incomplete state actually became her special ability, through the use of teleporting in front of another racer.]]
** Diet Cola Mountain serves as her base [[spoiler: and where the climax is set]] was also dummied out, though legitimately. It contains an incomplete track and the only access is through a wall. That's why no one looks for her there; as far as they're concerned, since it's not complete, it doesn't exist.

* Vanellope von Schweetz in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' is set in video games, so naturally it has a few examples. One is the major character Vanellope Von Schweetz, a character in from the racing game ''Sugar Rush'', Rush''. She glitches in and desires to participate in the random roster races that set the starting lineup for the next day's gameplay, but she, her kart out when emotionally compromised and her track were left in an incomplete state. This also prevents her from leaving her game isn't allowed to visit others like everyone else can. [[spoiler:That's all race because she's not a legitimate racer from the game, despite racing being her dream. She lives in Diet Cola Mountain, a dummied-out bonus level. [[spoiler: This was actually Invoked on her by King Candy (AKA Turbo) forcefully dummied her out after earlier getting his own game ''Turbo Time'' and another Candy, who's the ''real'' imposter, being Turbo, a character from a removed racing game ''Roadblasters'' unplugged by use of insane game jumping.]] Other racers refer to who invaded ''Sugar Rush'' because he couldn't stand the spotlight being on someone other than him. Vanellope as is indeed a "glitch". [[spoiler:At real character fully intended to be in the end of game, but when Turbo took over, he messed with her code, making everyone forget her and taking her place as the movie, her incomplete state actually became her special ability, through the use ruler of teleporting in front of another racer.]]
** Diet Cola Mountain serves as her base [[spoiler: and where the climax is set]] was also dummied out, though legitimately. It contains an incomplete track and the only access is through a wall. That's why no one looks for her there; as far as they're concerned, since it's not complete, it doesn't exist.

* Due to various reasons bridges are often the first thing that gets built for new railroad construction. This has a bunch of benefits and can help reduce both the time and the cost projects take. However, during the construction phase there will be a bridge that connects to nothing on either side. Now if the construction gets delayed or canceled, the whole thing just looks ridiculous. For instance, drivers on US 6 west of Denver, Colorado pass under a truss bridge that carries a light rail line over the highway, a bridge that was moved into place in 2009, a full four years before the line opened. A more egregious example is the high speed rail connection from Leipzig to Nuremberg (part of a new axis cutting journey time on the roughly 600 km from Berlin to Munich to just four hours). While the initial plans were drawn up almost immediately upon reunification in the nineties, it spent years in DevelopmentHell (the tentative opening of the final part is December of ''2017'') and [[https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geratalbrücke_Ichtershausen two]] [[https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itztalbrücke_(Eisenbahn) bridges]] were already constructed yet served no visible purpose for almost a decade. The term "Soda-Brücke" was quickly coind for a bridge that is "just there" (einfach so da) without any purpose.

** On the UsefulNotes/ChicagoL, there is an extra wide right of way leading to 2 unused tunnel portals at the west portal of the Milwaukee Dearborn Subway on the Blue Line near UIC. These were once intended for a four track subway line; only two tracks were ever built, and the unused tunnels dead-end after a few yards.

*** If commuting on Metra's Milwaukee District North Line, Milwaukee District West Line, North Central Service, or Union Pacific West Line, your train passes under a signal bridge east of Tower [=A2=] that looks like a truss arch bridge. That bridge is a remnant from the old Metropolitan Elevated, the predecessor to the Blue Line.



* Ride/DisneyThemeParks contain many remnants of attractions that were never finished, such as the dragon-shaped rock and castle bridge at Disney's Animal Kingdom intended for Beastly Kingdom, and the ravens in the Haunted Mansion that were supposed to be the narrator. They also include remnants of attractions that have long been demolished (for instance, the Magic Kingdom Skyway's terminals weren't demolished until over a decade after the ride closed: the Tomorrowland station was razed during Space Mountain's 2009 refurbishment and the Fantasyland station was used for stroller parking until it was razed to make room for the new Fantasyland expansion).

* Hersheypark's monorail has an single ghost station on its Route. The second station was a stop at the Hershey chocolate factory for the Factory Tour attraction; in 1973 Hershey Chocolate built the Chocolate World Attraction with an simulated tour dark ride and the monorail station at the Factory was closed.

* A strange RealLife example that isn't the result of human error: the Periodic Table has the element of Technetium. It's around the middle of the table, with more than 40 naturally-occurring elements in each direction, yet it has not been found outside of being manmade.
