Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/FullHouse'' was cancelled before the writers could make a proper finale, so the pilot of its Creator/{{Netflix}} SequelSeries, ''Series/FullerHouse'' was written as this and as a ReunionShow.

Added DiffLines:

* In the year 2000, authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child released a novel called ''Literature/TheIceLimit''. The novel ends with a SequelHook (which was expanded by a short epilogue on their website). The authors' [[Literature/AgentPendergast other works]] would make (sometimes [[SelfDeprecation self-deprecating]]) references to a ''The Ice Limit'' sequel, but none was forthcoming. In 2011, Preston and Child started the Gideon Crew series of novels, which included a prominent character from ''The Ice Limit'' as Gideon's boss. Finally in 2016, Preston and Child released the fourth Gideon Crew book. It's name? ''Beyond The Ice Limit''. One gets the distinct impression Preston and Child made an entirely new series ''just so they could make the sequel to their earlier story''.

* The ''Franchise/KamenRider'' franchise has managed to take this trope and mashed it together with TheMovie and created something called ''Movie Wars'', in which it's the equivalent to the usual the "bring back last season's Power Rangers" episodes, with the added twist of having two stories, one for each starring rider featured. Usually the last season's Kamen Rider gets the finale part, while the current Kamen Rider gets more of a side story. The only Movie Wars to not pull the finale off was ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'''s half of ''Movie Wars Core'', though considering that they already had a GrandFinale, it made more sense to instead do an OriginStory[=/=]WholeEpisodeFlashback for a PosthumousCharacter.

** The Direct-To-DVD crossover special ''Kamen Rider 4'', released when ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' aired on TV, does this for ''Series/KamenRider555''. The finale for ''555'' itself was notorious for not offering any true resolution, while leaving the fate of the main character Takumi be ambiguous. ''Kamen Rider 4'' resolves some of these plot points and gives Takumi a proper sendoff. What makes this entry notable, is that ''Kamen Rider 4'' acts as a FullyAbsorbedFinale for a series that stopped airing 11 years before its release.

* The Japanese video game ''Moonlight Syndrome'', part of the ''Twilight Syndrome'' series, which was written by Suda 51, ends with a cliffhanger. The resolution is found in the first case of the first game series Suda 51 wrote after he formed his own company, ''The Silver Case'', in which [[spoiler:two of the three survivors from ''Moonlight Syndrome'' are unceremoniously shot and killed.]]

** ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' would later have Morrigan claim that she cares not for the internal politics and power struggles of Makai, leaving the task of defeating Jedah to Demitri (and [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]]). Though the plot of ''Project X Zone'' is a direct sequel in some ways to ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'', it's unknown how interconnected the continuity of [[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Capcom's crossovers]] are. This may also count as some plotline closure for Demitri, the original intended protagonist of the series until [[{{Deuteragonist}} Morrigan]] [[BreakoutCharacter stole his show]], who actually does have ambition to rule Makai; he never faces Jedah in his ''Vampire Savior'' story (Morrigan is instead his FinalBoss) and a drama CD for the third game actually implies that [[spoiler:Jedah killed him]].

** Except that Race was shown alive on a ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' episode broadcast not long after the ''Venture Bros.'' episode. It appears that the Creator/HannaBarbera characters are the stylistic equivalents of [[PublicDomainCharacter Public Domain Characters]] in the world of Creator/AdultSwim (extending in part to Creator/CartoonNetwork as a whole).
*** This is because the Creator/HannaBarbera studio and properties ended up part of Turner Broadcasting, meaning that there are no legal issues for shows on Adult Swim (part of Cartoon Network, owned by Turner) to use those characters, more or less the entire reason for the existence of ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw''. The exception is that some properties are considered important, and while Space Ghost and Birdman can be made to do [[ComedicSociopathy terrible, terrible things]], certain others are left unmolested. This lead to a last second plot twist in an episode of Harvey Birdman [[spoiler:involving Fred Flinstone where Fred is shown to be innocent and only thinks that he is a mob boss, while Barney is the real don]] after the powers that be got wind of it.

* ''[[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avengers Annual #10]]'' serves as this for the abruptly cancelled ''[[ComicBook/MsMarvel]]''. In short, Creator/ChrisClaremont had written a GrandFinale for the comic, and it was halfway through artwork when Marvel pulled the plug, leaving it unreleased until 1992. So, Claremont just took over ''Avengers Annual 10'' using the plot points concerning Rogue's attack on Ms. Marvel from the cancelled issue and tying it into the then-ongoing Brotherhood of Evil Mutants/ ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast storyline. Incidentally, the issue also serves as a FullyAbsorbedFinale and a TakeThat to the events of ''Avengers #200'', finally allowing Carol (and Claremont!) to give a long-overdue WhatTheHellHero over Carol's treatment both in-story and out-of-story.

* [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu's]] ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]'' SuperMode, the Hado Kakusei, shows that he eventually overcomes the [[KillingIntent Satsui no Hadou]] (which was originally affirmed in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3'', but then [[HappyEndingOverride resurfaced]] in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''), or at least masters the Power of Nothingness that his master Gouken uses (which was introduced in ''SFIV'' and [[Anime/StreetFighterIVTheTiesThatBind its corresponding OVA]]).

* Though done as a semi-parody, ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' would seem to offer an answer to what happened to Race from ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest''... he dies in his over-the-top successor Brock's arms after a rather humiliating sequence of injurious events. Unlike most parodies of this type, the character's name is left intact and he even makes a reference to another name-intact character, Jonny. In the next season, we actually see Jonny, who has become a pill-popping psycho that lives in a marine exploration pod (and who has since recovered from his addictionóbut not his messed up childhood). These characters appeared because they were originally going to be [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Lawyer Friendly Cameos]], but the production found out that they ''could'' use the actual characters. Could be seen as a Fully Absorbed Finale just depending on how serious you can take ''anything'' in ''The Venture Bros.''
