** 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/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Season 4 made some decisions that weren't very popular, though the general attitude is that season 5 got better again. Showrunner Joss Whedon then took a year off during season 6 to focus on the musical episode (and ''Series/{{Firefly}}''), and while people do remember and celebrate the musical episode even years later, this meant that he handed off writing duties for season 6 to other writers, and it showed. Things got moving again in season 7 when Joss came back full time, and the story intentionally built up to the final battle, but many still found it to be little better due to problems with the characterization of much of the cast.

There may be a slight aversion about "not being worth the trouble" because those who have heard about the issues with seasons 6-7 can simply stop at the conclusion of season 5, which wraps up most dangling threads and has a definite, and satisfactory although bittersweet ending.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' -- courtesy of its VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon's barrage of DiabolusExMachina, HappyEndingOverride, and {{Retcon}} [[note]]Sure, the series is no stranger to the latter, but never so many at once.[[/note]] over all of the previous games in the series -- caused quite a few fans to cry RuinedForever and lose hype for ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII'' (which ''3D'' was supposed to build up to).

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' - Season 4 made some decisions that weren't very popular, though the general attitude is that season 5 got better again.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' - the first two seasons are great, to the point that it won a Peabody Award during the break between seasons two and three. When season 3 got underway, they started running out of ideas, and it was downhill from there. It didn't help that a large portion of the acclaimed writing staff (but not the head writer) left the show before season 3 got underway, particularly all of the female writers (who also were acknowledged to be the guiding hand in the writing of the female characters up to that point). Though YMMV on if season 3 was where the seasonal rot started - there is also a large contingent of fans that thinks the second half of season 4 was where things started getting bad. And that's not even getting into the controversy over the series' [[EsotericHappyEnding Esoteric Happy]] GainaxEnding.

* ''Profiler'' ended on a season cliffhanger--the Big Bad for most of the final season has been killed by another bad guy, of unknown motives, who is in the middle of carrying out his scheme.

* 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.

* After a strong opening arc and fight scenes in the ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''[='s=] Future Trunks Saga of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', started off strong; fans were glad to see EnsembleDarkhorse Trunks return, the quality took a divebomb during plot was interesting, and the last segments fights were some of the arc due to best-animated in the endless amounts entire ''Dragon Ball'' franchise. But that all came crashing down around the FinalBattle; firstly by playing up Goku's IdiotHero tendencies despite the fact that it '''literally''' put the fate of AssPull and the world at risk[[note]]The heroes had resolved to use the Evil Containment Wave to seal the immortal Zamasu away, but firstly Goku left the jar inside the time machine (which Goku Black blew up), ''then'' it was revealed that he left the PaperTalisman in the past, meaning the idea was doomed from the start[[/note]]. Plenty of fans were also unhappy with the {{Retcon}} giving the [[FusionDance Potara Earrings]] a time limit seemingly just to bring back Vegito without having to worry about the fusion being permanent. Then came the DiabolusExMachina starting when they botch at 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 end, where after all the hype from the previews, leaving it to Future Trunks to finish the job. But even with that, being killed by Trunks, Zamasu promptly goes into returns as a bodiless EldritchAbomination energy being and merges with manages to kill ''everyone'' aside from the multiverse, killing all main characters, followed by the survivors of his timeline which forced Goku to summon Future Zen-Oh and obliterate completely destroying the entire universe, rendering all of Trunks meaning Trunks' efforts to protect the timeline for [[AllForNothing complete naught]]. To put the ending were AllForNothing. And the final nail in straw is 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 denouncement, where Future Trunks and Mai will leave for a different timeline (where they'll still have to live with two similar counterparts. No wonder a lot of fans consider it an EsotericHappyEnding instead of alongside the bittersweet EarnYourHappyEnding versions of themselves from that timeline) presumably never to be seen again. The general consensus is that the narrative treated it at the first place.story should have ended one episode earlier, with Trunks' killing Zamasu.

** ''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".

* ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Episode 2'': Episode 2 ends on a major cliffhanger. However, Valve seems to have lost any interest in developing a continuation.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', due to being ChristmasRushed, had three of its dungeons DummiedOut and replaced with a lengthy FetchQuest of finding Triforce Charts, and paying Tingle to decipher those to find the Triforce Shards themselves. Luckily, the Wii U UpdatedRerelease simplified this quest so that only three of the Shards require Charts, the rest can be acquired directly.
