** The end of this game has the campers all going home and Raz and Lili sadly separating... only to suddenly reveal that the head of the Psychonauts (revealed to be [[spoiler:Lili's father]] has been kidnapped by a dangerous enemy, and both kids fly off with Sasha, Milla, and Oleander to rescue him. Despite the obvious hook, the creator is unsure if there will be a sequel, given the first game's poor sales but cult status.
** Schafer has recently stated that he will make a sequel in the future, but only if his upcoming game ''The Cave'' sells well.

* The trope image is from ''Film/MacAndMe'', which ended with the eponymous alien and his family becoming U.S. citizens and driving off in a car with a sign on the back with a big pink bubble showing up at the end saying "[[HilariousInHindsight We'll be back!]]". Thankfully, this was ''not'' followed through with due to the movie's box office failure. Mind you, this is the same movie that shamelessly ripped off [[ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]] and featured {{product placement}}s up the wazoo.

** The first stinger for ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' shows Mac Gargan saying he's got some buddies that want to go after Spider-Man; foreshadowing the Scorpion and maybe the Sinister Six. The second stinger [[spoilers:parodies sequel hooks at the expense of people hoping to see one, with Captain America presenting a PSA like the ones seen in the film about patience and how waiting for something isn't always worth it.]]

* A comic book example is found in the six issue Marvel Boy limited series from 2000. At the end, Marvel Boy ominously tells the government agents that in five months, the super prison he is in will become the capital for the new Kree Empire. After that, the caption advertises Marvel Boy 2:001!!!, a title that will likely not see the light of day, since Marvel Boy's next appearance was during the 2006 Summer Event Civil War.

* Most of ''Fanfic/TheGhostMap'''s final chapter is a Sequel Hook, with SherlockHolmes, [[TheWatson Dr. Watson]], and InspectorLestrade fully aware now that [[BiggerBad Moriarty]] is out there and will be returning. But it's the final scene with Moriarty himself that really clinches it.
