Usually, the ''immediate'' problem is gone, and the hero is leaving on a high note, but both he and his successor are aware that the problem or that type of problem will happen again; he has not fixed the world.

* ''Creator/{{ER}}'' does this through the ArcWords "You set the tone", which is what David Morgenstern tells Mark Greene (the original main character) in the pilot episode as a way of keeping hospital morale up. When Mark Greene departs at the end of Season 8, he says the same thing to John Carter (who essentially takes over the role of main character afterwards). Likewise, when John Carter departs at the end of Season 11, he shares the sentiment with Archie Morris, only to jokingly retract it when he realizes that Morris is too drunk to register it. Despite that, Morris eventually matures and takes up the responsibilities as one of the senior doctors of the ER, something Carter notes when he makes a return in Season 15.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', Turaga are created when Toa do this. This serves a number of simultaneous purposes: a new generation of Toa can appear, the wisdom and guidance of the prior generation of Toa is preserved and passed down, and it also allows the Toa to use a GameBreaker like [[spoiler:giving up their powers so as to save all of the known Matoran from Makuta's sleep spell]].

* In ''Literature/TheElenium'', one prime example is that of Kurik and his son, Khalad. Their family has served as squires to the Sparhawk family for several generations, so when Kurik [[spoiler:is killed by Adus]], Khalad takes on his father's duties. Another is [[spoiler:Dolmant's]] rise to the rank of Archprelate upon the death of Cluvonius. This is not counting Ehlana and Avin, who become Queen of Elenia and King of Thalesia, respectively, upon the death of their respective fathers.
