* [[SuddenDownerEnding "Changing Nature"]] from ''{{Series/Dinosaurs}}''. The episode has Earl Sinclair [[spoiler:accidentally setting off a chain of events that ''will'' destroy the world and as a consequence, all the dinosaurs in the show die out, including the Sinclair family. The last thing we actually see before the dinosaurs go extinct is news anchor [[PunnyName Howard Handupme]] telling the viewers "This is Howard Handupme, signing off for the very last time. Goodnight...and goodbye..."]]



* While seven other episodes that were intended to air earlier ended up airing in syndication after the fact, ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' ended with the episode "Changing Nature", where Earl Sinclair unwittingly causes a chain of events that results in [[DownerEnding an extremely hostile winter that wipes out all the dinosaurs]].

* ''ComicBook/KingdomCome''. A grand finale for the DC Universe ([[TheMultiverse or at least one, anyway]]) that also helped bring an end to UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' has two. The last episode of the regular, half-hour series, "Boxing Daria", in which Daria begins having flashbacks of her parents arguing and the constant parent-teacher conferences about her asocial behavior and the possibility that she may have social development issues, ending with Daria's parents telling her that, despite not being a social butterfly like Quinn, they still love her; with Daria in turn telling them that she considers herself lucky to have them as parents. The finale that closes out the entire series (both the half-hour episodes and the made-for-TV movies) is ''Is It College Yet?'', in which Daria's class prepare for life after high school (except for Kevin the football player, who has to repeat his senior year), Quinn gets a job and befriends a coworker with a drinking problem, Sandi loses her voice after Stacy wishes that Sandi would shut up (leading to The Fashion Club dissolving), Mr. [=DeMartino=] discovering that Ms. Barch and Mr. O'Neill are a couple and trying to get Mr. O'Neill out of it, Jane contemplating on whether or not college life is for her, Upchuck finally getting a date, and Jodie choosing whether to go to her parents' alma mater or to heed their advice to attend a more prestigious college.

** Though [[WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobMovieSpongeOutOfWater a sequel]] is being made, making that movie the new Grand Finale. [[spoiler:However, it's revealed to be a prequel.]]

** Interestingly, this was the show's '''third''' Grand Finale: The writers had believed that ''Justice League'' was to be canceled after the second season, and therefore ended it with a three-part episode involving an alien invasion, a traitor in the League's ranks, and shattering a romance that had been built up throughout the series... among other things. Then the show was renewed and re-tooled as ''Justice League Unlimited''. It was believed that it was to be canceled again in its second (or fourth depending on how you look at it) season, and thus a four-part episode was created to end things with a bang, followed by a lower-key episode that served as a coda for the Franchise/{{DCAU}} (and doubles as a FullyAbsorbedFinale for ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' which was not given a proper finale in its original run). It was [[PostScriptSeason then renewed]] for a second and final time, eventually resulting in the two-parter mentioned above.

* Staying in the DCAU, ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' had the excellent episode "Legacy", in which Superman is brainwashed by Darkseid and set upon Earth.

When a show (usually of the FailureIsTheOnlyOption or SternChase variety) comes to an end with sufficient lead time, the production team may decide to go out with a bang by ending the endless chase, destroying the undestroyable foe, or in some other way definitively and permanently changing the core axioms on which the show depends. It usually resolves all the conflicts that have driven the series over its entire run, and offers some kind of resolution to the dramatic tension that they have powered.

** Season 10's ending, on the other hand, is undoubtedly the end of the series, as it not only has a credits roll, it also advertises [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} a new series]] made by RoosterTeeth and Creator/MontyOum.
*** Doubt ahead! Jossed by everyone in the company, going on record to say that if people are still watching it (which they are) there will be no end in sight to Red vs Blue. However, Season 10 is the finale to the ''Project Freelancer'' saga.
This list shows the last 10 events of 524. Show all.
