* Creator/RalphBakshi's 1978 animated version of ''WesternAnimation/TheLordOfTheRings'' only covered the first two-thirds of Tolkien's trilogy. Those who desire to see the ending will be forced to pick up the books, watch Rankin-Bass's 1980 adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/TheReturnOfTheKing'' ([[AdaptationDecay Which is probably for the better]]...), or watch the [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings live-action version]]. A big cause of this was that the costs were massively underestimated, and the final result was pieced together from what they had finished; most of the animation in what was released is incomplete (for instance, every live-action character was supposed to be animated over).

* OlderThanPrint: At the beginning of ''Literature/TheCanterburyTales'', the characters are all heading to Canterbury for various reasons, and it's stated that each one will (for a story contest) tell two stories on the way there, and two on the way back. However, it breaks off before they make it to Canterbury or even have one character tell more than one story (in some cases, such as the Cook's Tale, the story is incomplete). Whether or not Creator/GeoffreyChaucer simply abandoned it or meant to finish it but [[AuthorExistenceFailure died first]] is unknown. (An alternative explanation is that the work was completed, but no complete version of the manuscript has been retained or recorded).

* While the remakes of LunarTheSilverStar [[CapcomSequelStagnation may very well never end]], it's safe to say we will probably never have a brand new installment in the {{Lunar}} series, due to Studio Alex no longer existing and the absolute trainwreck that was LunarDragonSong. Sad, because a "Lunar 3" was apparently in development at one point.

* The WebVideo/GameGrumps are notorious for the amount of playthroughs they've left unfinished, the most infamous ones being ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic '06]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon FireRed]]''. While some (such as the ones just mentioned) have legitimate reasons for their abandonment (Dan doesn't want to butt in on an adventure he was never a part of, and Arin wants to grind up so that he can face the Elite Four in a fair fight, respectively), most of them are just dropped for no apparent reason.

** Due to how easy it is to bookmark and sort the thousands of stories on Fimfiction, however, you might just be surprised by your once-favorite story getting an update after a two-and-a-half-year break.

An even worse case is when the webcomic literally vanishes from the Internet because the account it was hosted on was deleted due to the bill not being paid in a long time.

* In the mid-90s, three different companies produced comics based on ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. The first company, Gladestone, published two mini-series set in Season Two before passing it to Marvel. Marvel did an adaptation to ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'' and started two series set in Season Three (one with the Rangers in morphed state and a flip book with the team in Ninja form coupled with stories based on ''Series/VRTroopers''). Only six issues of ''those'' were made before it was passed over to Awesome Comics where only ''one issue'' of a ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' comic and an ad talking about a crossover between the Zeo team and ''{{Youngblood}}'' was made.
