** A {{lampshad|eHanging}}ing occurred in the episode "A Tale of Two Springfields" when, after the plot had shifted, a badger who had been living in the dog-house tries to reassert itself, but Homer accusingly tells it that they're onto something else now. The episode ends with the badger [[RuleOfFunny leading any army of badgers to invade Springfield]] when they're [[ThePowerOfRock distracted by a concert]] by Music/TheWho.

* ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Episode Two'' ends with huge one. The leader of the resistance and your alley Eli Vance is brutally killed by some Combine Advisors. By sucking out his brains, the Combine learned everything he knows about the resistance and info about the missing cargo ship The Borealis. The game sadly ends with his daughter Alyx crying over his corpse. Not only that, we never learned why the Combine are interested in The Borealis, or the fates Judith Mossman and Barney, or even The G-Man's cryptic warnings about "Unforeseen Consequences." The original plan Valve had was too make three episodes in the span of three years, but they never released Episode 3 for unknown reasons. It's baffling because Valve actually hyped it up in several interviews prior to Episode 2's release and even in Episode 2's commentary. Now they constantly avoid talking about it altogether when asked about it. Until Valve officially confirms the follow up now possibly labeled Half-Life 3 by fans, we are left hanging.

* Speaking of ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'', that game ended wtih Dante defeating Virgil to keep him from taking over the BigBag position to rule humanity. Despite this, however, demons have now been outsed and the world is in a state of confusion and chaos with it being uncertain how things will turn out. If that wasn't bad enough, the DLC for Virgil shows him casting his empathy aside and amassing an army of demons for his own conquest. What happens next? No clue, as the series went into hiatus after this game released. With no word from Capcom on if they'll continue this continuty or not.

* Due to the [[ExecutiveMeddling rushed conclusion]] for the final arc of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' many hanging plot threats that had been established during the Thousand Year Blood War had to be ignored in order to reach the finale. These include, but are not limited to, [[spoiler:the fate of Captain Komamura after losing his human form, the exact nature of Yachiru's existence as Kenpachi's Zanpakuto spirit (as well as the rules of Zaraki's Bankai), and whether or not Grimmjow, Yoruichi and Urahara survived Askin Nakk Le Vaar's poison prison.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' ended on a TV Movie, ''The Doomstar Reqiuem'', with Dethklok finally shedding their selfish ways, saving Toki and apparently on the track to godhood. But Offdensen quits being their manager to become the new head of the Church of the Black Klok, Selectia is still plotting something with his Project Falconback and Murderface was pricked by a "fan"'s spiked braclet during the movie which injects him with something and seemingly will sow discord with the band later. So what happens next? Well your guess is as good as anyone else's as Adult Swim and Brendon Samll got into a disagreement on how to proced, resulting in [=AS=] cancelling the series. Even despite fan support, [=AS=] refused to budge and Brendon was later quoted stating he was done making music for the series.

* ''[[VideoGame/GearsOfWar Gears of War 2]]'' is ''paced'' from beginning to end by dropping the latest subplot and introducing a new one.
** ''Gears of War 3'', which WordOfGod confirms is definitely the last game in the series, does do a good job of wrapping up each characters' personal plot arcs and finally explains Imulsion and the Lambent, but still leaves unaddressed the Sires[=/=]New Hope Facility sub-plot from the second game, the true nature of the Locust (if any), as well as the question of who or what Queen Myrrah really was.
** This was solved with old forum posts and the tie-in comic ''The Slab''. Though, Adam Fenix's disk is never brought up again.

* ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}} 3'':
** The ending the game abruptly smashes you in the face with the credits ''immediately'' after the climax. There's a short [[TheStinger stinger]] scene in the middle of the credits which answers ''one'' minor question but that's as far as it goes. [[spoiler: As far as the player knows: 1. The Helghast fleet has been mostly destroyed. 2. The nuking of Stahl's flagship on the surface of Helghan triggered a massive Petrusite chain reaction which appeared to wipe out ''all life on the surface'', with the obvious exception of Stahl and a few of his soldiers as seen in Stinger mentioned. 3. Considering how powerful the Helghast weapons have become, and how some of their ships warped to Earth, it's possible the attack on Earth has already begun. 4. The ISA forces left at Helghan were either destroyed by the petrusite reaction or stuck flying around the planet in fighters incapable of warp travel, so they probably have no way to get to Earth.]]
** ''KillzoneShadowfall'' dealt with the aftermath of the ending to ''Killzone 3'', only to leave players hanging about the fate of the cold war. No new sequels have been made, and no information about the original protagonists has been given.

* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'': Though you may not know it: [[spoiler: The true ending seems to imply Junpei finds Akane, right? Wrong. He doesn't. He spends the rest of his life looking for her, and she goes off on some huge, grand scheme that the director only mentioned in passing.]]
** The sequel ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' is even worse, [[spoiler:the entire game being training set up by Akane and Future!Sigma to develop Sigma and Phi's esper abilities to send them to the past and prevent the Radical-6 outbreak. Naturally, the game ends with them jumping back in time, and neither epilogue takes place when any of the participants willing to divulge information have yet been in the Mars mission test site.]]

** Not to mention ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', which leaves a good bunch of plot threads unresolved: [[spoiler:who was that religious fanatic?

[[note]]We are explained what happens to the other teams through in-game files, but not D-Team.[[/note]]]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' was cancelled before any plot points could be resolved. Some people say the cancellation was due to lack of toy sales, though co-creator Creator/GenndyTartakovsky later revealed that the cancellation was just as fueled by [[ExecutiveMeddling executives wishing the show to be more like ''Ben 10''.]]
