* The final scenario of ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth's'' Greek campaign (which is also the final scenario of Alexander the Great's story arc) involves Alexander completing his conquest of Persia and thwarting an assassination attempt on his life, without going into his failed expedition to take India and eventual death. A similar thing happens in the final scenario of the Hundred Years' War arc of the British campaign, which ends with the battle of Agincourt, the last major English victory of the war before the French turned the tide.

* ''Manga/SchoolLive'' ends on an TheAdventureContinues ending where the girl's are searching for a new place to stay after their school burns down. This is the end of the first arc of the manga. The second arc is where CerebusSyndrome ''really'' hits and things go FromBadToWorse. The anime also removed some of the more negative parts of the first arcs ending, such as [[spoiler:Kurumi and Miki being injured]] and [[spoiler:Yuuri's FreakOut]].

* ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'' film famously dealt with the cruel twist at the end of the novel by ending ten minutes early. Yes, it was a DiabolusExMachina, but it was also a little crucial to the rest of the trilogy happening ''at all''. It might, however, be pasted at the start of the sequel... [[StillbornFranchise (Which they won't be making.)]]
** The stage adaptations of the trilogy also go with the pasting option, so it's very likely that will happen with the film. Or at least it would if there ''was'' another film. Since ''The Golden Compass'' film didn't do too well, a sequel is unlikely.
** The really, really irritating part is that the entire downer ending was ''actually filmed'', but it was [[ExecutiveMeddling cut at the last minute]]. That footage is sitting on some editor's hard drive somewhere, but we'll probably never get to see it. What little of it appeared in the tie-in game actually looked pretty good.

* ''WesternAnimation/BolivarElHeroe'': The real Bolivar's life becomes a hell after he became president: Spanish South America ends up divided, he becomes unpopular (he even had to escape from an assassination attempt) and dies sadly. Those events are not shown even if there is a SequelHook at the ending.

* ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers1956'', the book ended with the Pods picking up and leaving after realizing that humanity will never stop fighting them, and the town slowly returning to normal. The movie adaption has a bleaker ending (even with the semi-hopeful Framing Sequence placed by ExecutiveMeddling), and the first and second remakes are bleaker still.

** ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'': In the original myth, Hercules kills Megara and their children in a fit of madness set upon him by Hera. It's one of the ''first'' things Herc does as an adult. All of his heroic deeds involving lions and hydras are forms of [[TheAtoner atonement]]. Of course, this Hercules is ''Hera's'' son[[note]]Hercules' parentage varies DependingOnTheWriter - some myths have him as Zeus' (naturally illegitimate) offspring (Hera, ''Goddess of marriage'', was always faithful to her husband) and given the name "Heracles" - "Beloved of Hera" - to try and deflect some of the expected heat from the Goddess.[[/note]], and she isn't even slightly antagonistic, and the whole thing's been thoroughly [[{{Disneyfication}} Disneyfied]], so Herc and Meg are probably fine.

* As usual with Moses and the Ten Commandments' adaptations, this happens in ''WesternAnimation/ATaleOfEgypt''. It leaves out the Hebrew incidents and the punishment of Moses' generation not seeing the Promised Land.

* ''Film/TheLionInWinter'' ends with Henry II escaping the plots against him, and preparing to face the future with renewed vitality. According to TheOtherWiki, he died six years later. Phillip and Richard raised arms against him, and Henry was too sick to do anything other than make a complete surrender. John publicly sided against him, and learning that was [[DespairEventHorizon the final shock that killed him]].

* ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'' does this ''in story'', with author WilliamGoldman's fictional father, who's been reading only "the good parts" of the story-within-a-story, leaving off the over-the-top NoEnding paragraph which states that as the heroes ride into the sunset, Inigo's wound reopens, Fezzik takes a wrong turn, Buttercup's horse throws a shoe, and Humperdink is hot on their trail.
