* ''[[ComicBook/{{SpiderMan}} Spider-Man]]'': The mystery of FACADE would have been simple to resolve in one issue, but then the ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga'' took all the attention, until being referenced years later in ''Dark Reign Files'' and ''Amazing Spider-Man'' #678.

* ''PantyAndStockingWithGarterBelt'' pulls this to a seemingly sadistic degree. [[spoiler:In literally the last minute, Stocking inexplicably [[FaceHeelTurn reveals she's actually a demon]], chops Panty into pieces, and leaves Brief on a quest to gather them back up.]] The end. Aside from a tease in the episode itself, there hasn't been a whisper of a new season in the six years since to follow any of this up.

* The ''Franchise/{{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.

* ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'': The ending of the story mode of the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set ([[spoiler: which implies that Loki and Ultron were in league with Thanos, and that Thanos is coming after the Marvel heroes]]) was clearly a SequelHook, but the fact that ''Infinity'' has ended production means that this twist in the game's plot likely won't be leading anywhere anytime soon.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 2'' ended with Mega Man Volnutt stuck on the moon, and Roll Caskett and Tron Bonne working together to rescue him. This was left to hang for an entire ''decade'', and with the cancellation of ''Mega Man Legends 3'', it seems it's not going to be resolved any time soon.

* The first and only season of''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'' ends with a series of dramatic events, including Joan sleeping with JFK, Scudworth being apprehended by the Board of Shadowy Figures, and all the clones being frozen. The show was cancelled and we never learned what became of anyone.

Added DiffLines:

* {{WebVideo/Googlebrains}} has a video that just leaves you in thin air about what happens next. There is an ending but they say stuff that adds so much possibility for a continuation.

Added DiffLines:

* The ending to ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'' is a DownerEnding {{Cliffhanger}} with [[spoiler:Sly trapped in the past]] and an unresolved plot point into why [[spoiler:Penelope pulled a FaceHeelTurn and continues to stalk her ex-boyfriend with postcards]]. Unfortunately, a fifth game was never announced, and over a year later, Sanzaru confirmed the franchise has been cancelled.

* 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.

* ''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 MarvelCinematicUniverse.
** As ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' was developed to be a [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse 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.
