Added DiffLines:

* Many manga/manhua/manhwa continued until the end but their non-official fans-translations didn't, Manhwa ''Metal Heart'' is such example.
* Some Manhwa example (until October 2017):
** ''Yoo Ah Dok Jon'' only ran 15 chapters then abandoned without any news.
** ''PhD: Phantasy Degree'' aka ''Master School Olympus'' in Indonesia only ran 10 Volumes and currently the mangaka do other projects.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebComic/ToddAllisonAndThePetuniaViolet'''s orphaning is a strange case; creator Nozmo went on hiatus for a couple months before putting out a smaller one-shot comic, and then vanished from the internet without a trace on any of her various blog sites. That would make two series with ''WebComic/{{Alternate}}''.

** In addition, several of the US anime houses briefly got into the manga game by publishing the comic versions of their anime titles (and nearly all of ''them'' are gone too): Creator/ADVFilms (''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'', though it was rescued), Media Blasters (''Eiken''), Creator/BandaiEntertainment (''Manga/LuckyStar'' & ''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Gurren Lagann]]''), and CentralParkMedia (the ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' manga; there's a ''reason'' their alternate name was "U.S. Manga Corps")

* The English translation of the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' manga ended on ''Kingdom Hearts II Vol. 2'' after [=TokyoPop=] decided to discontinue the series due to financial problems. Good that there are [[{{Scanlation}} fans who translate where TokyoPop can't, right?]] The series has since been picked up by ''Yen Press'', and as of October 2013, the manga adaptations for the [[{{Manga/KingdomHeartsI}} first]] [[{{Manga/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories}} three]] [[{{Manga/KingdomHeartsII}} games]] has been re-released, with [[{{Manga/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2}} another one]] upcoming.

See also DeadFic. Compare {{Vaporware}}, which is something the creator claims ''not'' to have given up on -- but almost all the fans have. Also compare StillbornFranchise, which is when a work could have gotten a series of {{Spinoff}}s, {{Sequel}}s, and {{Prequel}}s if not for this trope. For when the work is orphaned in a more ''literal'' sense, see also AuthorExistenceFailure.

This isn't very common among professionally produced works, as their large team of creators, [[MoneyDearBoy incredible profitability]], and susceptibility to ExecutiveMeddling make it hard for them to be abandoned for anything other than {{cancellation}}.

Oh, and, by the way, TheOtherWiki also [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unfinished_creative_work has an article]] about this trope. Read it. Or don't. It's your choice.
