** [=NextG=] officially retired from pooping altogether with "[=NextG=]'s Ancient Prophecies", the longest poop he's made since ''Everybody Now!'', crammed with even more references to earlier episodes.

* ''Series/BlackAdderGoesForth'' ended with [[spoiler: all the main characters (sans Melchett) being sent over the top of the trenches and presumably being shot to death. [[TearJerker One of the saddest and]] [[DownerEnding most emotional endings for a series]].]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} 64'' could be seen as the big finale to the original series before ''Doom 3'' rebooted it. Doomguy has seemingly killed every last demon in Hell, and [[IChooseToStay chooses to stay behind]] to ensure that no demon ever rises again.

Doomguy has seemingly killed every last demon in Hell, and [[IChooseToStay chooses to stay behind]] to ensure that no demon ever rises again. [[spoiler: It is left unclear, however, if ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' is indeed a StealthSequel to the original series, a BroadStrokes interpretation of the aftermath of the original series' events, or both.]]



* The third installment of the ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'' series feels this way, by having a fleshed out story mode that deals the relationships of the characters and having the heroes fight the remnants of Orochi's power leading to a definitive ending where [[spoiler: they either return to their own worlds with VictoryGuidedAmnesia or decide to settle their differences and create a world of piece]]. Expanded upon with ''Ultimate'' which [[spoiler: features the origins of Orochi, and the final war against the villain who triggered everything that happened in the series of games]].

* Given that the works of Creator/RumikoTakahashi tend to go on for far longer than they should, some animes end up ending abruptly without closure. The biggest example being ''Ranma 1/2''. So it came as a great surprise to many that the ''Manga/InuYasha'' manga was finally given its Grand Finale in early 2008. A new anime, ''Manga/InuYasha: The Final Act'', began airing in late 2009 to resolve the anime's plot as well.

** In 1991, tobacco advertising was forbidden on TV, and as such, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMg_CAuvqeQ "Shot in the Dark"]] was the company's last TV ad. It showed a sperm being unable to get into an egg. It was truly SomethingCompletelyDifferent, as the sperm doesn't even take a smoke, and the famous "Happiness is a warm cigar named Hamlet" slogan isn't even said at the end. This makes the sperm--who at the end sorrowly wallows away--a bit of a {{Woobie}}.

** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'''s "A New Dawn" resulted in Ben and Rook finally defeating Maltruant and Vilgax, by trapping the former in a time loop in which he is forced to relive the same events repeatedly, Skurd's origins are revealed, Ben creating his own universe and ends with Ben going on a road trip with Rook, Gwen and Kevin. The end, right? Indeed it is the end...of the original continuity. [[ContinuityReboot Reboot anyone]]?

* ''Fanfic/YoungJusticeDarknessFalls'', as fitting a superhero continuation of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' ends with a great battle against super villains. The episode in question, ''Retaliation'' deals with the league and the team in their FinalBattle against Klarion and the forces of [[spoiler: {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}]]. Not only does it end with tons of cool battles and wrapping up almost all the emotional arcs of the fic (and the show in some cases as well), but it also gives the show the kind of closure GregWeisman gave {{Gargoyles}}: an open ended ending that still manages to be satisfying. For [[spoiler: even though the light is still at large, the League and Team have finally [[ScrewDestiny averted]] the BadFuture Bart Allen came from.]]
