* Masashi Kishimoto was rumored to have wanted to end ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' seven years before he actually did, it was around that time that the series had the Pain arc which ended with Naruto returning to the village as a beloved hero, considering his beginnings as a lonely outcast, it feels conclusive to his character as a whole and the series could've ended there perfectly if it wasn't for the dangling threads of a still missing Sasuke and Tobi's evil plot, ([[SeasonalRot Some fans wish it was]]). But barring that, there's the [[WarArc Fourth Shinobi World War]] which serves as a very definite Final Battle for all involved and the FinalBattle ends with [[spoiler: Naruto and Sasuke finally reconciling]], aside from a few loose ends being left unwrapped, like [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse the fates of Orochimaru and Team Taka]], there was the DistantFinale which felt like the definitive conclusion and finally answered which were the [[OfficialCouple Official Couples]]. This of course was just the platform for the New Era Project consisting of ''Manga/NarutoGaiden'', ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'' and ''[[Manga/{{Boruto}} Boruto: Naruto Next Generation]]''.

* ''Videogame/ResidentEvil5'' seems like it was designed to be the finale of the series. Original protagonists Chris and Jill reunite (under some very unique circumstances) and series BigBad Wesker finally takes direct action after several games of plotting from behind the scenes. The game also brings the Umbrella Corporation to a final end with the death of founder Oswald Spencer, and reveals the true origins and motives of the evil pharmaceutical company. In the end only a few plot threads were still left hanging, mostly involving ''[[Videogame/ResidentEvil2 Sherry and Ada Wong]]''. Much like the Metal Gear Franchise, subsequent games have either been interquels or had the feel of a [[PostScriptSeason post-script]] ''[[Videogame/ResidentEvil6 game]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DeadSpace3'' seems to end on a decisively final conclusion for Isaac, the Markers, and the Necromorphs. Then the ''Awakening'' DLC comes along to continue the story, ending on a grim cliffhanger. Shortly afterwards the series was put on indefinite hiatus due to "poor" sales performance, leaving the plot hanging on a very dark note.

Time will tell on whether the new spinoff will finally give it a conclusive end.

Added DiffLines:

* Season 5 of ''Series/{{Veep}}'' ends with Selina leaving office without any chance of taking part in the new administration, while her staff all go their separate ways onto new things. However, by the time this episode aired, the series had already been renewed for a sixth season.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Archer}}'': Despite the massive CliffHanger ending in which [[spoiler: the main character is seemingly murdered]], the season 7 finale was this. By WordOfGod, they weren't sure if they were going to get renewed or not, but felt that [[spoiler: Archer's death]] would be a good place to end the series if they didn't. However, they also included a few hints towards ways the CliffHanger could be resolved if they did get renewed, which, luckily for fans, they did.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Most finales, except the second, were intentionally designed to serve as possible series-enders in case the show was unexpectedly canceled. Out of all possible finales, the only one that would be really unsatisfying as TheEnd is season four's DenouementEpisode, which is wall-to-wall cryptic foreshadowing for future episodes in the fifth season ([[spoiler:"Be back before Dawn!"]]).
** Even season two would be an effective BittersweetEnding, resolving all the main ongoing plotlines and ending with [[spoiler: Buffy walking away from her life after being forced to kill Angel]].
