** ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyTheMentallyAdvancedSeries'' ends with Twilight enlisting Spike, Rainbow Dash, and Applejack in helping her come up with ideas for a friendship report. Mostly just {{take that}}s to the premises of later episodes. But unlike other examples, Greg, the series creator official reveals that he's cancelling the series, to move on to other things through text at the end of said episode.

* The Franchise/StarTrek novel ''Literature/{{IQ}}'' has a subversion; the novel is written by John de Lancie and Peter David, from Q's first-person point of view as he, Picard and Data try to save his family, Lady Q and q, and stop the universe from ending. They progress through several bizarre realms and realize that each is a representation of the universe itself going through the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stages_of_grief Kubler-Ross stages of grief.]] In the end, they accomplish basically nothing and stare down the actual vortex sucking the universe, literally, down the drain. Q, at this point, desperate for options and knowing that absolutely none exist, [[spoiler: manifests a literal message-in-a-bottle in his hands, containing a copy of the book, declares that he is Loki himself and that the universe isn't ''allowed'' to end until he says so before throwing the bottle in.]] The book cuts off mid-sentence, and the following pages are absolutely blank [[spoiler: until, finally, the word "heh" starts appearing in the middle of each page. Normal text soon resumes; the bottle washes up on a beach where a young woman, shown in the novel's beginning to be the being responsible for the end, remembers briefly meeting Q by chance while reading it. The fact that Q, of all people, has learned even before the end of the universe to value life and living, is enough to convince her that the universe should continue, and she undoes the end.]]

* Death Cab for Cutie's "Pity & Fear" builds up into a huge, climactic, distorted repeating riff, and then cuts out halfway into a riff. Apparently, whatever they were using to record the song broke in the middle of the recording, and they just ended up keeping it because it sounded better.

*''VideoGame/JourneyToSilius'' has very little plot as it is, but the ending is a single still image with no text, and then the credits roll.

* ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosZ'''s final episode was only a few episodes long as opposed to many of the others in the series and [[CliffHanger right before a climactic battle]] no less! As a result, several events never got resolved that were established in previous episodes. This is [[CreatorBacklash all due to the creator's refusal to continue working with sprite animation]], although the ending credits [[CutShort suggest otherwise]].

** The anime adaptation of ''Manga/InuYasha'' ends with the heroes running off into the sunset, still having yet to defeat the antagonist, but proudly proclaiming that someday they will. Eventually it got subverted when the show was {{Uncancelled}} to finish out the rest of the series. Though doesn't cover all the manga stories from where the original series left off, just the main conflict with Naraku.

* ''Film/TheSteelHelmet'' by Creator/SamuelFuller ends like this. [[spoiler:At the end, part of the squad has dead, as is Short Round but Zack, Tanaka and Thompson and few survive, are relieved by another squad and it's implied they go on fighting UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar, leaving it up in the air if they will survive and return home or not. Indeed the title card at the end spells it out]]:
--> ''There is no end to this picture''.

* The ''ComicBook/SpiderManLovesMaryJane'' series ended up having this type of ending. After spending a lot of time building up the Peter/Mary Jane hook up, the final scene of the series ends with Peter and Mary Jane reaching to hold each others hands. To everyone's annoyence, the follow-up series (which is not written by Sean [=McKeever=]) does not follow up on this and establishes M.J. and Peter are still just friends. They have a nice moment in the final issue sharing a Pizza together, though.

They have a nice moment in the final issue sharing a Pizza together, though. According to later interviews with McKeever, Peter and M.J did indeed become a couple in his version of events and some plans he had for follow-ups would have involved a love triangle with Johnny Storm, but that Peter and M.J would still come out of it as a couple
