* VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII left two plot points hanging (and those wasn't ever answered by future games either). The first one is the disappearance of Donald Love (which is never revelead the reason or where he went) and the second one is regarding the ambigious last scene in which Maria Salvatore may be or may be not have been KilledOffscreen.

* ''Series/Bugs'' ended with Alex's husband murdered by persons unknown at her wedding and Beckett 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.

Added DiffLines:

** The seventh season eventually ends up implying that [[spoiler: Littlefinger]] sent the assassin, which creates something of an AdaptationInducedPlotHole since the timeline for this to have been planned by that particular person is not ''impossible'', but pretty questionable.

* The popular sitcom ''Series/{{Titus}}'' was canceled before they could write a proper episode to conclude the series. While the last episode was good and funny, it ended with [[spoiler:Titus being put in a mental hospital for a few months as a stipulation for everyone to avoid jail time.]]
* An episode of ''Series/TheOfficeUS'' dealt with Dwight finding a joint in the parking lot and becoming more paranoid than ever as he tries to find the culprit. By the end this morphs into Dwight covering for Michael, who had accidentally inhaled some pot smoke the night before, leaving the question of how the joint itself got there unanswered.
** It's revealed in a deleted scene that it's two employees from Vance Refrigeration.
** Dwight never finds the man who flashed Phyllis, either.

Added DiffLines:

** A sequel series, released almost 25 years after the fact, does tie up some unresolved plot and character points, though leaves others unanswered and adds quite a few new ones as well.

* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' ends with Harry deciding to form a super villain team and forcing Spider-Man back into action. A slew of sequels [[AshcanCopy to retain the character's rights]] were planned. Then the film's diminishing returns and Sony's problems led them to [[AbortedArc abandon the idea]] and instead let Spidey into the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.
** As ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' was developed to be a sprawling, Marvel-style universe, many plot points that were introduced in the first two films went unresolved. We never do find out who Richard Parker was spying on Oscorp for, or [[spoiler:who killed Uncle Ben]], or how Gustav Fiers convinced Norman Osbourne to fund the creation of the technology for the Sinister Six in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ItComesAtNight'' gained notoriety for leaving just about every plot point as an AmbiguousSituation. A few examples include: [[spoiler:Where did the virus come from? Was Will lying about his family's past? What did Stanley the dog chase after, and why did he just disappear? Why were Travis and Andrew drawing pictures of ominous people in the woods? Did Andrew get infected? And what the heck does the title even refer to?]]

* Chapter 44 of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' offers a flashback of Annie and Mikasa about to square off in a training fight, causing all the others to flock around them in excitement over who the winner will be. We're never told however, as that's where the flashback ends.
** WordOfGod later confirmed they had been so equally matched the instructor had to interfere and call it a draw.

* Near its end, ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' got hit by this twice in quick 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.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'' managed to end without Eibon, the enigmatic (presumably) BiggerBad behind Noah and the Book of Eibon having made an appearance outside of a flashback. Hell, the entirety of Noah, who has the Book of Eibon and Brew and 5 more copies of himself. Only Noah-Greed was given a major role as a villain.

* ''{{ComicBook/Sabretooth}}'' and [[Characters/GenerationX Monet]]'s relationship in ''UncannyXMen2015'' due to the ''ResurrXion'' relaunch. During the run, WordOfGod mentioned that he enjoyed writing their relationship, and seemed to be [[ShipTease going]] toward [[RelationshipUpgrade more]] for the two, Also confirmed, by WordOfGod that Sabretooth would have a romance later in the series, and that the romance would not be Pyslocke. Monet eventually becomes Creed's MoralityChain, where he tries to fight reverting to his old self so he can continue to help with her M-Plate curse. The book ends with the disbanding of the team, but Sabretooth & Monet were shown to have run off together, with Psylocke comparing them to [[OutlawCouple Starkweather & Fugate]]. As of ''ResurrXion'', they are both in different books. Monet is still possessed in Strain's Generation X and Sabretooth was living in the woods before being recruited by Old Man Logan in Pak's Weapon X. No reason has been given as to why they're separated, nor has the relationship been referenced at all.

** Some inquired on Bunn's social media if he thought Greg Pak would follow up on the Creed/Monet relationship, but Bunn gave no response. Greg Pak was asked in an X-Position panel if he would continue with Bunn's work on Sabretooth -since his moral struggle & budding ship with Monet couldn't be wrapped up by the end of Uncanny. Pak said he had plans to follow up on the former, but said nothing on the latter.
