** Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto personally requested Franchise/PacMan be made a playable character for ''Brawl'' (Pac-Man is his favorite video game character), but the Sakurai was unable to think of a good moveset at the time. He would make his debut in ''U/3DS'', and indeed, most of his attacks there draw inspiration from other Namco games rather than his home series alone.

** In ''Film/IronMan'', Rhodey looks at the silver prototype Iron Man suit and says, "[[ComicBook/WarMachine Next time, baby]]." Unintentionally funny in that Rhodey had been recast by the next film where he actually gets to wear the armor.



** In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' the fate or identity of Rey's family is never revealed, but it has been confirmed that that issue will be resolved later on in the sequel trilogy.

** In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' the fate or identity of Rey's family is never revealed, but it has been confirmed that that issue will be resolved later on in the sequel trilogy. As of ''Film/TheLastJedi'', they have been revealed by Kylo Ren to be [[spoiler:nobody important - drunkards who sold their daughter for drinking money and abandoned her on Jakku]]. Whether this is true or not is yet to be seen.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Arachnid}}'' gets an ending with little closure for the heroine and several loose ends, but years later the sidestory ''Caterpillar'' became a POVSequel after its prequel arc.

A plot element that doesn’t get fully developed, perhaps on the assumption that they’ll have the sequel to take care of it. The element can be a relationship, a theme, or a character that clearly has a lot more possible development, but doesn’t get it. The central plot is no less complete and these aspects may have just been there to enlarge the universe, but they're there and available for later use- more story to tell later. This can backfire if the sequel doesn't get made.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' left a number of loose ends that weren't wrapped up when the story was finished. Fans were expecting a [[UpdatedRerelease "Grey Version"]] following the pattern from past generations, but instead full sequels were released: ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2''.
** Shellos and Gastrodon were originally planned for ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' but were moved to ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl''.

** Shellos and Gastrodon While ''Videogame/PokemonXAndY'' did have Zygarde as a BonusBoss, [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} the Anime]] featured forms for it not found in those games. Because there was no UpdatedRerelease or {{Sequel}} for the Kalos games,[[note]]which averted this Trope for other loose ends...[[/note]] those extra forms were originally planned for ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' but were moved to ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl''.put into ''Videogame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' (and ''its'' {{Updated Rerelease}}s) as a sidequest.

->''"We always leave ideas that were in the first draft as you go along. You know, either a set piece that was great but too expensive, an idea that was really bright, but it couldn't quite fit the structure... so we have a little stash of stuff we wanted to do that we didn't get to do. So if that's a possibility, A) I would be very happy to do a sequel, but B) a lot of these ideas, set pieces and all that, actually have in them a really good seed for a sequel."''
-->-- '''Creator/GuillermoDelToro''' on ''Film/PacificRim''



Compare SequelHook, which only occurs at the end of the story and is specifically geared toward inviting a sequel. Also compare DevelopmentGag, where hints of certain pathways the story could have taken are left as tidbits.

tidbits, and RefittedForSequel, where an element is ''dropped'' from the original production only to be modified to fit a later work.

** Over half of the new Pokemon from ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' were originally intended for ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'', but were cut due to time and space constraints. Later, Shellos and Gastrodon were originally planned for ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' but were moved to ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl''.

* A deleted subplot from ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' focusing on Captain America's attempts at rebuilding his old life (which ended up only alluded to) was included in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''.
* Early drafts of the script for ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' had Baron von Strucker as a side villain working under the ComicBook/RedSkull, the film's BigBad. The writers felt that using Strucker in such a minor role would be a "waste," so they wrote him out. He eventually made his debut in TheStinger of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', and was used briefly as one of the villains in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''.

** According to Joss Whedon, an amazingly awesome, fist-pumping Hulk moment from the climax of ''Age of Ultron'' was cut for disrupting the flow of the finale. He cited this trope as his reason for not revealing what it was, since Marvel can use it in a future film.

[[AC: Anime and Manga]]
* Reinforce Zwei of the Franchise/LyricalNanoha series. During ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs A's]]'' she was the very definition of LastEpisodeNewCharacter; she only had a single line at the very end of the last episode of the season. Come ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers StrikerS]]'' onward however she gets considerably more characterization and screen time.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', the Quarians are worried over a remote star dying far faster than it ought to be. Tali hypothesizes it's due to dark energy affecting the interior of the star, but remarks that no race has the ability or any particular motive to destroy one. Nevertheless, she voices concern over the possibility of an adversary powerful enough to take a star out. The explanation is left open for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''. Amusingly, this has ended up as an AbortedArc - it's one of the few dangling threads that isn't addressed at all (not even in one of Shepard's emails). Perhaps it will be addressed in the expected new storyline set in the universe.

* In ''Series/{{Noob}}'', Omega Zell and Gaea were meant to both have something big happen to them at the end of Season 5, which was supposed to be the last of the webseries. Part of Season 5's production ran concurrently with a crowfunding campaign meant finance a movie that would be a sequel to the webseries. When the crowdfunding turned extremely sucessful, the creator decided to move these big moments to ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'' so they could be made more impressive than if they had happened during the webseries.
