* The DavidLodge novel ''Changing Places'' ends with one of the characters arguing that film is a superior medium to literature, because you can always see the end of a novel coming by the fact that the book is running out of pages. Movies have more potential for surprise, he argues, because they can end at any moment, sometimes with no explanation. As he is saying this, the book abruptly cuts him off in mid-sentence and ends.

* ''TheCryingOfLot49'' is about a woman who suspects she has discovered an enormous AncientConspiracy of mailmen. One of her clues is that an old stamp collection is up for auction, and she believes that - if the conspiracy is indeed real - someone will show up to bid on it very heavily. Looking at a program, she sees that the stamps have been designated as the 49th lot to be cried at auction. Not only are we cut off from TheReveal, but ''The Crying of Lot 49'' ends seconds before the crying of lot 49. * Bret Easton Ellis's novel ''The Rules Of Attraction'', as noted above under the film adaptation, ends in mid-sentence on exactly the same two words it began with.

** Many fans speculate the episode ends this way because, InUniverse, it is a fail-safe to protect the formula in the event Plankton gets his hands on the tape.

* A RunningGag in ''Webcomic/KidRadd'' is that TheHero of the "Kid Radd" videogame has never been able to kiss his DistressedDamsel because the credits run just as he's about to do it. * In [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0283.html this]] ''[[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]]'', had Elan not complained about the verdict being InterruptedByTheEnd, [[SelfFulfillingProphecy it wouldn't have been]] (a fact that was, of course, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Roy).
