** When he shows up in Season 7, Davos continues the joke in-canon. "I thought you might still be rowing."

* ''Series/TwinPeaks'': The last vision in the last episode before cancellation we have of agent Cooper is him laughing maniacally in front of a mirror. One can assume that he remains forever possessed by BOB, who now roams again freely. The movie implied it.
** A DeletedScene from ''Fire Walk With Me'' shows what happens next: [[spoiler: BOB lies down on the floor to fake an accident.]]

* ''Series/TwinPeaks'': The original run of the series ended up with multiple {{Cliff Hanger}}s, leaving numerous character in mid-peril. We're left with the idea of them frozen in place until the show was UnCancelled 26 years later.
** Leo is stuck in an isolated cabin, forced to hold up a DeathTrap full of spider by a string, with his ''teeth''.
** Andrew, Audrey, and Pete are perpetually in the dust cloud of an explosion.

* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'': The fate of the Megaroad-01 (where Ichijo Hikaru, Misa Hayase and Lynn Minmay were in) remained unknown and was never addressed in the next ''Macross'' shows as most people in-universe knew that they have lost contact with them. Minmay’s [[http://monkeybacon.mywebcommunity.org/OTother/MinmeiLastMessage.php last message]] revealed that they were at the center of the galaxy which has a black hole and they’re going towards with a possibility that they’ll never come back ''ever''. Anyone who is well-versed with astronomy and astrophysics knew that there's a supermassive black hole at the galactic center and travelling to a black hole is a very trippy experience, according to this [[http://www.businessinsider.com/what-happens-when-you-enter-a-black-hole-2014-12 research]].

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', thanks to Games Workshop's [[StatusQuoIsGod refusal to move the timeline forward]], is stuck in this state on multiple fronts. The Astronomicon is on the brink of collapse, the 13th Black Crusade is getting started, the full force of the Tyranid invasion is just arriving, Ghazghull is being hunted, the Octarius Empire and Hive Fleet Leviathan are beating the crap out of each other, the Necron dynasties are establishing themselves, and that's the way things have been stuck for years with no sign of a resolution.

In 2016 they started moving the plot forward again; in the case of the !3th black crusade the first stage of the war really did canonically spend a decade as a stalemate, although we only rejoin the story in the final days.

* Since Toei's ''Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries'' never made it to Duelist Kingdom, if you don't count the 30-minute movie Seto Kaiba has been in a coma since 1998.

* In ''Literature/WheelOfTime'', Mat Cauthon ends one book in a cliffhanger, having been caught under some falling rubble. He does not appear at all in the next book, leading fans to joke that he was trapped under the rubble and slowly starving to death the entire time. (In actuality, he extricated himself and was recovering from his injuries off-screen.)
* In ''TheCatcherInTheRye'', Holden's assumption that this is the case with an old classmate he's catching up with emphasizes his unhealthily fixation on the past, which is a running theme throughout the novel. Holden keeps asking if he's dating the same girl, doing the same things, etc., and seems surprised to learn that the classmate has actually ''changed'' in the years since they'd last seen each other.

* The ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "The Magnificent Ferengi" implies this. The Ferengi agree to free a Vorta held captive on Deep Space Nine in exchange for Quark's mother. This [[GoneHorriblyWrong goes horribly wrong]] when one of the Ferengi accidentally shoots the Vorta prisoner dead, forcing them to reanimate the body with a neural stimulator [[OfCorpseHesAlive to fool the other Vorta into thinking he is still alive]]. At the end of the episode, the reanimated corpse is left on the abandoned space station where the botched exchange was to have taken place, repeatedly bumping its head against a wall, and thus presumably will keep doing so until the device's power runs out.
** In the "Q-Less" Q sends Bashir off to sleep near the beginning; Bashir is then absent for the entire episode and [[BrickJoke shows up at the end yawning and announcing that he feels like he's been asleep for days]].
