* TheBBC's [[Series/TheTripods adaptation]] of John Christopher's ''Literature/TheTripods'' trilogy was left hanging at the end of the second series, which adapted the second book and ended with a massive cliffhanger. A third and final series had been scripted but was cancelled due to the same hostility to SF and fantasy among the BBC's leadership that saw ''Series/DoctorWho'' gradually smothered at around the same time.

* The tenth season of ''WesternAnimtion/TheSmurfs'' is about a dozen of the main characters lost in time due to magical kristal 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.

* Due to a lawsuit with former writer, Ken Penders, the [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedghog 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 Naguas 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.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': The manga was cancelled midway through its Final Arc as a result of Kubo's increasingly worsening health since 2010 that leaves him bedridden with increasing frequency; he only kept going for as long as he did as a result of an inspiring letter that he received after the death of a terminally ill child who had enjoyed reading Kubo's manga while bedridden. Many established plot threads were abandoned in order to wrap up the final battle in time for the manga's fifteenth anniversary. These include, but are not limited to, the Ishida family's true history, the reveal of several Bankai, the fate of Captain Komamura [[spoiler: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 Nel was able to rescue Grimmjow, Yoruichi and Urahara from Askin Nakk Le Vaar's poison prison]].

* [[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.

** There were actually several plot threads that were never fully resolved thanks to the canceling of the show. Surtur was just the most noticeable one. Others include Captain America's arrangement with Hela, Maria Hill leading the heroes toward ComicBook/CivilWar, Hawkeye's love life, the fate of Princess Ravana, Hulk's eventual return to the team, capturing the last of the breakout villains, Stark industries's woes, Wonder Man's possible return, and Ronan the Accuser escaping custody.

* The Charles Sheffield sci-fi novel ''Cold as Ice'' follows this trope to ridiculous extremes as the writer tells the story of several, unconnected main characters. One of these, a standard [[PersonOfMassDestruction End of the World]] plot, is resolved in the main story. The others are swiftly, and without explanation, dealt with in the Epilogue.
