* ''Lemony Snicket's Film/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' was made into a feature film while the book series was still ongoing. The film's story loosely adapts the first three books (though not in sequence), but its ending is original, hinting at the secret society eventually revealed in the later books and Count Olaf's role in the house fire. Presumably it was written this way in case sequels based on the remaining books were never greenlit -- [[WhatCouldHaveBeen which turned out to be the case]].

* ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle'' uses major fights from each of the manga's sections as story mode. But as part 8, Jojolion, was still in early run when the game was developed, the story mode for it has the protagonist fighting all the previous Jojos [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg (and Baoh, if he was downloaded)]] before going off to find Yasuho Hirose.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/Castle'' was caught in this, trying to find out whether the cast would sign back onto the show and/or whether they would be cancelled for each of the last couple seasons. As a result they filmed both a cliffhanger and a smarmy ending, and then tacked the smarmy ending onto the final episode right after the cliffhanger to admittedly bad effect.

* ''NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStorm3'' takes place during the Fourth Shinobi World War, but since the manga was still ongoing at the game's release, the game's story ends after Naruto breaks Tobi's mask when Tobi escapes, thus ending the war, [[spoiler:instead of continuing with TheReveal of Tobi being Obito Uchiha and the war continuing]]

* The relationship between ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' and its {{spinoff}} ''KnotsLanding'' produced a strange example. ''Dallas'' had an infamous plot twist in which it turned out that the events of the prior season had been AllJustADream. Problem was, ''Knots Landing'' had already based a number of plot developments on the death of Bobby Ewing, which was retconned out of existence by ''Dallas''[='=] "dream season". The two shows became [[AlternateUniverse alternate continuities]] from there on out. It was a GeckoEnding that took place in the middle of both shows.

** Inverted as of 2014 with Book of Circus picking up where the anime's canon episodes left off (episode 15) with a filler (though heavily inspired by Chapter 5 of the manga) reintroduction to Black Butler's main duo (as it was out of the air for a long time) and followed by 9 episodes adapting the Noah's Ark Circus arc, then further followed by Book of Murder, two hour-long [=OVA=]s adapting the Phantomhive Manor Murders arc.

* While the second ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' film diverged from the original by its second half, the third film outright abandons retelling the original story to [[spoiler:craft a new setting [[TimeSkip 14 years into the future]],]] firmly placing the films in an AlternateUniverse to the original. (Leaving aside fan theories about continuation.) This is a case where the original work had ''two'' endings, both of dubious value for thematically concluding the story.

* ''Manga/CrossGame'' is one of the first series to use the aversion method mentioned in the description. Since Mitsuru Adachi had the whole manga mapped out before it began, the anime producers were able to create a faithful adaption of the entire manga, even though it was nearly a year away from ending when the anime began airing. Both the anime and manga concluded within a month of each other, with nearly identical endings.
