* ''Series/Bugs'' ended with Alex's husband murdered by persons unknown at her wedding and Ed and Ros being kidnapped by a mysterious man they seemed to recognize. The cancellation of the series means we'll never know who killed the poor man, or who kidnapped our two heroes.

* The first season of ''Series/Class'' ended on a triple cliffhanger : Miss Quill was pregnant with a kid that could kill her, April was trapped in the body of an alien, and the Board of Governors' backers were revealed. BBC has announced that there won't be a second season, so no resolutions to those plotlines.

** 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]].

Most of these unresolved hooks are directly or indirectly [[SequelHook setting up for the third game]], but at least a few of them, not the least being [[spoiler:the identity of "?"]], are unaddressed.

** And now, with Scott having indefinitely shelved the sixth installment due to needing a break from the series, it's fairly likely that we'll never get a follow-up on [[SequelHook the various dangling plot threads from]] ''[[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation Sister Location]]'', most notably [[spoiler:Michael Afton / Springtrap going after his villainous father for revenge]].



** Not to mention ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', which leaves a good bunch of plot threads unresolved: [[spoiler:who was that religious fanatic? Was he/she found by Crash Keys, or did they doom humanity? Did Carlos shoot Delta or not? What happened to D-Team after the Payoff confrontation with Delta? [[note]]We are explained what happens to the other teams through in-game files, but not D-Team.[[/note]]]]
* In [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VisualNovel/DaiGyakutenSaibanNaruhodouRyuunosukeNoBouken The Great Ace Attorney]], there are many questions left unanswered. What Asougi's mission was, why [[spoiler:Jezail murdered Watson, what Megundal's plan with the government secrets was, who betrayed van Zieks and why, how Susato knows of the ''Hounds of the Baskervilles'', and why Holmes forbade it from being published, why Asougi, Gregson, and Watson were mentioned in the government secrets, and who the fourth person mentioned, A. Sasha, is.]]

* The ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' web-serials ceased being updated long ago, for the simple reason that the writer didn't have time to continue doing them, leaving about a dozen or so different plot-lines hanging, some of them in their very early stages. And as these were the sole story-sources, after the cancellation of the toys, comics, books and movies, this effectively means the entire franchise ended this way.

* Because a CreatorBreakdown torched it when it didn't have to be, ''WebVideo/DemoReel'' left a few things unanswered, most annoying being Donnie's failed marriage. What did he do to make it die? Did she know about his past? How did they meet? We'll never find out.

* Near its end, ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' got hit by this twice, in succession. In ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'', Helga confesses her feelings to Arnold, but at the end claims she said it on the heat of the moment. From his unconvinced smile, and the fact that he later flirts with her while dancing tango in "April Fool's Day", it's pretty clear he knows that's not the case. However, he never actually responds to Helga's confession at all. And then, at the end of "The Journal", Arnold finds a map of the San Lorenzo jungle that could lead him to his lost parents' whereabouts. This was intended to be the lead-in to the second ''Hey Arnold!'' film, known as "The Jungle Movie", which would've resolved ''both'' of these questions, but Craig Bartlett's departure from Nickelodeon coupled with the low gross of the first film led to the GrandFinale of the series being cancelled. It would be more than a decade before this trope would be [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] with the announcement of the "Jungle Movie" going back into production as a two-part TV movie.

* The details of Nero's background in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4'' remain very blurry. We still don't know whose son he is (claims that he's Vergil's remain {{Fanon}}), when or how he got his RedRightHand, or how much Dante knows about himů and apparently we will never know since Capcom decided to let Ninja Theory make a [[VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry "rebirth"]] of the series rather than a sequel.
* ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'' game ended wtih Dante defeating Virgil to keep him from taking over the BigBad 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.

* The tenth season of ''WesternAnimtion/TheSmurfs'' is about a dozen of the main characters lost in time due to magical crystals traveling from time to time. As the show was cancelled after that (generally ill-received) season it ends with a Lef Hanging as is never known whether the Smurfs did return to their original time.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' never answers the questions of where weirdness comes from, [[spoiler: why Bill could not leave Gravity Falls, and why Weirdmageddon stops once Bill is defeated.]]

* [[ComicBook/MegaMan The Archie Mega Man comic]] was cancelled due to low sales and ended right at the start of the adaptation of the fourth game. While fans of the games know how things will turn out, there was still the matter of what Mr. X [[spoiler: (who in this version is not a disguised Wily, but an aged Xander Payne who got thrown into the past following the ''[[SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsUnite Worlds Unite]]'' crossover and had to take TheSlowPath back to the current time),]] was planning against all robot kind and how his verison of the fifth game would play out.
* Due to a lawsuit with former writer, Ken Penders, the [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog comic]] was forced to pull a CosmicRetcon so that any characters of his were written out to avoid paying him royalties. As such, many storylines that were still in development such as Naugas taking over Geffory's body and still in rule over New Mobotropolis, Bunnie coping with her regained flesh, Antonie still in a coma, Scourge breaking free from the No Zone, whatever Finitivs was planning and Sally still being robot were dropped indefinitely and will no longer have an official resolution.
