* ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'': The game ended on a massive {{Cliffhanger}} that would have been a great SequelHook... except that the company recently stated they have no plans to make a sequel. An interesting example in that the game itself is very well-liked and considered a worthy successor to the first three games, but since a cliffhanger like that is a major DownerEnding when taken on its own, fans just don't want the series to end that way.

* ''Series/TheXFiles'', of course. Even attempts at TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised did not go so well (the series ends with the protagonists "waiting" for a future cataclysm; the second movie was an unrelated plot that preceded this disaster; the supposed third movie to finally give closure languished in DevelopmentHell, and while there will be an UnCanceled season, how it deals with everything is yet to be seen).

Added DiffLines:

* After a strong opening arc and fight scenes in the Future Trunks Saga of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', the quality took a divebomb during the last segments of the arc due to the endless amounts of AssPull and DiabolusExMachina starting when they botch the Mafuba seal due to them forgetting about the talisman. The retcon to the Potara Fusion now lasting a limited duration (1 hour for non-Kais, shortened even further due to using Blue transformation, which resulted in only 5 minutes of screen-time) has been poorly received especially after all the hype from the previews, leaving it to Future Trunks to finish the job. But even with that, Zamasu promptly goes into a bodiless EldritchAbomination and merges with the multiverse, killing all the survivors of his timeline which forced Goku to summon Zen-Oh and obliterate the entire universe, rendering all of Trunks efforts to protect the timeline for [[AllForNothing complete naught]]. To put the ending the final nail in the coffin, rather than stay in the present timeline and find a way to restore Trunks's universe back or settle down with the people he knows, they instead has Whis give Trunks an AlternateTimeline to stay in, which of note is not the same people he fought so hard to protect especially considering that Whis tells them that Trunks and Mai will live with two similar counterparts. No wonder a lot of fans consider it an EsotericHappyEnding instead of the bittersweet EarnYourHappyEnding that the narrative treated it at the first place.

** ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' somehow managed to top ''[=DR3=]'' in controversy with Chapter 6 and the final trial. Aside from the mastermind being fairly controversial compared to Junko, [[spoiler:it's revealed that [[TrumanShowPlot the entire situation is all the 53rd season of a reality TV show]], and the sixteen students were all normal people with fake personalities implanted in them.]] That in itself is bad enough, but then [[TakeThatAudience it criticizes and lampoons the fanbase]] for enjoying the series and its fictional characters and wanting more killing games. It doesn't help that in Japanese, the meaning behind "[=V3=]" [[spoiler:(the number 53)]] is read as "gomi" or "trash".

* While ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' received mixed reception before the ending, the last two episodes have been accused of this to the point that many who were defending the anime changed tune after they aired. The penultimate episode saw a FanDislikedExplanation for the Final Killing Game that was widely critisced for raising lot of FridgeLogic and rendering a good portion of the anime pointless, along with making the mastermind [[TheScrappy heavily disliked by the fandom.]] The GrandFinale saw [[spoiler: Class 77-B coming BackFromTheDead]] (which triggered a ''massive'' BrokenBase) and basically [[SpotlightStealingSquad hijacking the plot]] from the rest of the cast. Plot threads the show had built up were left abruptly dropped for rampant PanderingToTheBase, creating a good number of {{BrokenAesop}}s, an {{Anticlimax}} and capped it off with the [[BrokenBase widely divisive]] resurrection of [[spoiler: Kirigiri]] in the final two minutes.
** The [[GagDub English dub]] even has [[spoiler: Kirigri]] [[{{lampshade}} lampshading]] this before they changed it to a more accurate translation by stating [[spoiler: her resurrection]] doesn't make sense.

* ''Series/GilmoreGirls'''s original ending in season 7, while left things fairly resolved on a positive note, the fact that it (along with season 7) wasn't written by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino left many of the fandom wondering what her true ending was and begrudgingly accepted it for what it was. Come 2016 and Sherman-Palladino revived the series to give it the true story ending that she wanted. Most fans were happy with how Lorelai and Emily's story arcs concluded, but the fact that [[spoiler: Rory ends up pregnant and likely to repeat her mother's mistakes and that Jess may or may not still be pining after her like his uncle did with her mother]] sent most of the fans into a rage and declaring the revival's ending non-canon.

* ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' (the manga) went into a hiatus since 2003 with the last scene showing Kamui, lying on the ground with Fuuma, preparing to stab him with his sword. A decade has passed and CLAMP became too focused with other projects, not even bothering to touch the series which made fans of the manga feel that the story will never continue at this point.

* ''WesternAnimation/SilverSurfer'' was cancelled early because of Marvel's bankruptcy in the 1990s. So the show concludes on a major CliffHanger where Thanos the Mad Titan ends all of existence.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' - They'd sort of resolved all of the main story arc by the end of season 7, and a later episode broke the Fourth Wall to say that fans felt they phoned it in for season 8. Still, it ended with a GrandFinale that took out virtually all major galactic threats for good. The real break was seasons 9 and 10, when they introduced an entirely new set of villains, which to be honest were [[MeetTheNewBoss something of a retread of the earlier ones]]. They were even going to rename the show "Stargate Command" when season 9 began to try to emphasize how different it was, but rather than make a sequel-spinoff the network felt more viewers would stay if they kept the name intact.

The actual final episode isn't really a finale at all, so they had to wrap things up with ''two'' DTV movies.
