* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' was hit by a KudzuPlot EndingFatigue which relied too much on {{Shocking Swerve}}s and was LeftHanging due to a massive ScheduleSlip, with only one of the plots wrapped up. Throw TheChrisCarterEffect in there somewhere, along with the post-script revelation that almost all the character deaths have been undone or ''re''done off-screen.

* Creator/DavidEddings' series ''The Dreamers''. It's generally described as a pretty average series, not as good as the ''Belgariad/Malloreon'' or the ''Elenium/Tamuli'', but a decent read overall... ''except'' the ending. There are some fans who loved the whole series, but they are ''vastly'' outnumbered. Why? Well, [[spoiler: the ending had the most powerful gods decide to finally take down the enemy by going back in time and rendering said enemy infertile. Not only was there no reason why they couldn't have done this before, but this had the effect of writing the whole series out of existence, setting everyone back to where they were in the beginning of the series (with some changes- for example, a minor character got brought back to life, though one of the main characters had to stay dead) and making it so that nothing in the previous books had happened.]] Upon finishing the books and realising that the first three books were entirely meaningless, most of the fans ''flipped their shit''.

** To make matters worse, he did the same thing in the standalone novel ''The Redemption of Alathas'': the titular character and his goddess girlfriend go back in time and defeat the BigBad in the past by waiting until he attacked their cabin and kicking him out of reality. Fans were especially upset when he used such a weak ending a second time.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 2'' ended with Mega Man stranded on the moon, and Roll and Tron beginning construction on a rocketship to rescue him. Unfortunately, the third game got cancelled and Keiji Inafune left Capcom, so the story will likely never be concluded.

to:

* ''VideoGame/BionicCommando 2009'' has a cliffhanger ending with Spencer falling to an unknown fate after killing Super Joe, and a Morse code [[TheStinger stinger]] telling of the activation of a new Project Albatros[s]. Poor sales of this and the LicensedGame of ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'' led to development studio GRIN [[CreatorKiller going out of business]], and the following (and currently last) game, ''BC Rearmed 2'', was a midquel.

* ''VideoGame/MagicalStarsign'''s ending is hevaily disliked, as not only does the person you were trying to save the whole game die, the epilogue has every character acting against the development they received or getting all-new hopes and dreams, and one character even sacrifices himself. The romance is also left unresolved.
