* Series/BetterCallSaul is a prequel and the story of Saul Goodman, who played a significant role in BreakingBad as Walter White's lawyer. He's still "Jimmy McGill" at the start of the show, but we know he'll eventually become Saul, he'll eventually lose most of his ethics and turn into a high-powered organized crime attorney and he'll eventually end up exiled to Nebraska after the events of BB. VinceGilligan has said the show's about how someone like Saul even comes to exist.

Sometimes, however, authors choose to go a different route. They will make known to the audience how their story ends before they even begin telling it. Sometimes they'll do so with an explicit statement (such as in a SpoilerOpening), sometimes by writing a prequel that ends right where the original work begins. Whatever the case may be, the author has given himself quite a task. He must find some way to establish tension and doubt when everyone knows how the story is going to end.

The film then continues after the death of the main character, and then goes back and tells the story of how the British Empire was humiliated. Considering the fact that the film is based of the life of a long dead historical figure, the beginning doesn't really give much away.

* The synopsis for ''FanFic/AColdCalculus'' tells us that Euphemia emerges from the story as Empress of Britannia. Also, the opening snippets ([[FictionalDocument framed as a history book]]) gives the outcome of few story elements such as [[spoiler:Viletta's becoming a Knight of the Round and Nina's research eventually leading to nuclear weapons development.]]

Trope misuse. At the time the manga was being published, the fandom had a lot of theories about why there was a discrepency. At the end of the story, the discrepency was never explained and the resolution wasn't related to this either. It's just never addressed in the story at all.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'' makes it clear from the moment Kagome returns to the present for the first time and sees it's unchanged that Naraku doesn't survive, as he would be immortal and (as powerful as he becomes near the manga's end) has no reason to hide from humanity. In fact, the only demons we see at all are either forces of nature (the Hell's Piper) or were sealed away in feudal times (the Noh mask), implying the demons have either been wiped out or so overwhelmed by the advancement of human technology they've had to go into hiding.

** Thanks to the manga ending and the epilogue being a DistantFinale, the ending to ''[[Film/Naruto7TheLast The Last: Naruto the Movie]]'' (a RomanceArc for the OfficialCouple) is already known. The question is less "WillTheyOrWontThey'' and more "[[TheyDo How Will They]]?".
