* ''{{Franchise/Naruto}}'': Due to genre of the series, all canon pairings decided within the last two chapters and [[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie The Last Movie]]. AllLoveIsUnrequited is strictly enforced for the entire duration of the series and even at the end of the main story, the romantic relationships of the characters were still left unresolved. Then the last chapter is a BabiesEverAfter DistantFinale with the romantic relationships somehow resolved off-screen during the TimeSkip. In the case of Naruto and Hinata, their hookup was resolved in an in-canon movie appropriately titled ''The Last'' set between the second last chapter and the last chapter of the manga.

* It is very common for ''{{Redwall}}'' novels to reveal in the epilogue that characters got married after their adventure. Rather infamously, it never happened for Mariel and Dandin.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForLaughs in PopstarNeverStopNeverStopping, where immediately after the Style Boyz performance at the Poppy's, Lawrence makes out with the unnamed stagehand who he had previously never even met (at least on screen). This is even {{Lampshaded}} by Conner in the middle of his inner monologue.
--> '''Conner''': Yo, do they even know each other?

*''Anime/{{Nightwalker}}'': Over the course of the story, Riho develops from {{muggle}} GirlFriday to SecretKeeper to [[spoiler:vampire daughter]] and finally to lover of the {{Vampire Detective|Series}} protagonist. Despite appearing like a one-sided crush on Riho's part for the majority of the show, in the penultimate scene Shido and Riho get into bed (a coffin) together.

* ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' ended with the titular hero and his romantic interest marrying and sailing off on a magic carpet together---but the sequel movies and TV series which follow press the ResetButton a little bit, making them only ''engaged'' (with Aladdin living in the palace to learn the ropes about being a Prince before the marriage takes place). While this may seem practical, it also allows the show to avoid the squicky-to-ten-year-olds portrayal of physical intimacy between the two romantically linked characters. (It also conveniently gives the hero a chance to [[AManIsNotAVirgin demonstrate his manliness]] by becoming a [[MagneticGirlfriend desire magnet]] for every [[TheVamp hot villainess]] and DamselInDistress who comes to town.)

Often times the audience will only follow a series just to see if a specific couple will hookup. Actually hooking up the couple in the middle of the series runs the risk of TrueLoveIsBoring and ShippingBedDeath. In many series, resolving the romantic situations of the main characters is a SeriesGoal, hence any attempt to break through and resolve the relationships before the GrandFinale results in FailureIsTheOnlyOption. StatusQuoIsGod results in the characters being placed under a RelationshipCeiling for the duration of the series.
