* As far as the series' chronology is concerned, ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' is this for the ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' series. [[spoiler: It showcases the final fate of the murderer and sends the ghosts of the dead children off to the afterlife.]] [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4 The fourth game]] was billed as "The Final Chapter", making it a straighter example, but [[spoiler: it takes place before ''3'', at roughly the same time as ''2''.]] ''[[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation Sister Location]]'' is ambiguous about exactly ''where'' chronologically it takes place, but given that defeating Golden Freddy mode shows a cutscene that reveals [[spoiler: that Springtrap's alive (and might ''not'' have been the murderer after all)]], it's safe to say the finale might be undone.

** Officially the GrandFinale is the [[VideoGame/FreddyFazbearsPizzeriaSimulator sixth game]] which occurs last chronologically and ties up all the loose ends showing the final fates of Baby, Springtrap aka William Afton, Freddy and Ennard, and the pizza chain as a whole. Only the fate of the Puppet is debatable but even then it gets closure to its story.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' ended with the three-parter "Weirdmageddon", with the final episode being an hour-long event. The finale picks off from where the previous episode left off, and has the main characters deal with TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The first part has [[MadScientist Grand Uncle Stanford]] be captured by [[EldritchAbomination Bill Cipher]], the [[TheBigBookofEverything Journals]] destroyed and [[KidHero Dipper]] forced to wander the wreckage of the town before discovering where [[BrotherSisterTeam Mabel]] is being held prisoner. The second part, subtitled "Escape from Reality" has Dipper, [[ActionGirl Wendy]], and [[ManChild Soos]] enter the pocket dimension that Mabel is trapped in order to rescue her, only to discover that she has been manipulated into staying there with [[LotusEaterMachine a virtual paradise that gives her whatever she wants]] and where she never has to grow up. [[MakesSenseInContext After a courtroom trial]], Dipper is able to convince Mabel to leave and the four escape back into the real world. The final part, "Take Back the Falls", has the group join forces with the remaining townsfolk to take down Bill. Bill is ultimately taken down when [[BadassGrandpa Grunkle Stan]] tricks Bill into entering his mind, and allowing his mind to be destroyed by the memory gun so that Bill can be defeated. The final scenes of the series have Grunkle Stan slowly regaining his memory, and a majority of the loose ends being tied up before the kids are put on the bus back to California, where Dipper monologues to the viewer [[BookEnds in the same manner as the first episode]].

Added DiffLines:

* Every entry in the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' has had one, with some being grander than others. Most end with the protagonist losing the ability to transform or the Ultraman having to leave Earth, usually after fighting an extremely formidable MonsterOfTheWeek or the series' BigBad.

** The finale of the original ''{{Concentration}}'' on March 23, 1973 had been noted at least twice during the telecast. But their sign-off at show's end was rather perfunctory, with host Bob Clayton thanking viewers over the past 14-1/2 years as Tony Columbia strikes up "Auld Lang Syne" during the ending credits. Announcer Wayne Howell would quickly intone "This program has been recorded. This is Wayne Howell. Have a happy, safe weekend. Bye!"

* The original Series/{{Concentration}} ended its 14-year/7 month run on NBC daytime with an apropos puzzle to its fans ("You've Been More Than Kind"). Musicians Milton Kaye and Tony Columbia strike up "Auld Lang Syne" during the closing credits.

* ''Spider-Girl: The End'' brings the long-running clone saga of the Spider-Girl books to a close whilst also sending off the character with both a happy and an open ending, with Mayday finally hooking up with her loyal friend Wes as her family look on. Wes asks the question "where do we go from here?". Time will tell if we'll ever know, as it is presently The End...for now.

* The finale of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' has Scrooge [=McDuck=] getting possession of the Golden Goose...a magical artifact that can turn anything it touches to gold. The problem is, it eventually, it becomes sentient, and starts acting on its own, going after anything and anyone, turning them to gold. Then, things get even worse, when the goose starts The Golden Death... a massive, spreading wave that will eventually turn the entire planet to gold, and everyone on it. Scrooge has to return the goose to the temple it was stolen from, before he looses everything he holds dear due to his greed. Thankfully, he manages to make it at the very last second, and save the planet.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' "rock opera" episode "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" has been widely thought to be the series' grand finale, even though it was a season five episode (and has never been screened in the U.S.). The last original first-run episode screened was "What's The Big Idea?".
** The [[MilestoneCelebration 10th Anniversary special]], "The Powerpuff Girls Rule", becomes the actually aired finale, and fits the trope nicely as Mojo actually achieves his goal of taking over the world...and making it a better place much to the surprise of everyone. However, he gets bored of peace and goes right back to causing mayhem, which in turn forces the girls to resume their hero duties.

* The original ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' series ended with a three-part episode called "Once Upon a Time on Mars", which didn't resolve anything, but served as an OriginsEpisode by having the titular protagonists' latest battle with Lawrence Limburger serve as a framing device for flashbacks explaining how the Biker Mice got their bionic enhancements and how they ended up on Earth.
** The 2006 revival has two episodes that count as a finale. The first finale is the three-part episode "Once Upon a Time on Earth", which finally had Throttle, Vinnie, and Modo defeat the Catatonians for good. The second finale was the final episode "Turf Wars", which had the Biker Mice go back to Mars to face their old enemies the Nomad Rats and finally use Stoker's Regenerator to put an end to their planet's drought.
