* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'': Despite the blatant NegativeContinuity the show has, the creator made it clear that no matter how long the show goes for, the movie will always be the series finale {{canon}}-wise, no matter how little sense it may make due to material in any given post-movie episodes... but then the series carried on due to ExecutiveMeddling, so maybe the movie wasn't canon. (And if that was not enough, WordOfGod says that there's a sequel coming out sometime this year, and it may indicate that the first movie may or may not be canon, or a potential finale, with said movie being another potential one.)
** "[=SpongeBob=]'s Last Stand" was thought to be the GrandFinale (and its name also suggests this), with a NearVillainVictory (Plankton has successfully driven away business from the Krusty Krab, and Mr. Krabs was ready to hand over the Krabby Patty secret formula, until a bunch a jellyfish cut negoations short by stopping that from happening by going on a rampage, making it a DidntThinkThisThrough moment for Plankton).

** Season 11 ends with Jonah eaten by Reptilicus Metallicus during his forced wedding by Kinga Forrester, though by the way Kinga expresses her anger, there's the idea that we could see a Season 12.

** The season four episode "The Leap" was also written as a possible send off for the characters which could easily function as a series finale.

** "Blagsnarst: A Love Story" is another, with the entire series revealed to be Stan reading a story that chronicles how Kim Kardashian was born and putting a book called ''American Dad! on FOX'' [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic on a shelf next to some classic novels]] (''The Brothers Karamazov'', ''Moby Dick'', ''From Whom the Bell Tolls'', and ''War and Peace'')...then came the TBS episodes, which, like the ''Boondocks''' fourth season, [[FanonDiscontinuity is considered by some to be so bad that they pretend it doesn't exist]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' originally ended with the season five episode MusicalEpisode, "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" in which the girls make a deal with a reality-altering gnome to rid Townsville of the villains plaguing it in exchange for their powers. Realizing that evil still lurks in Townsville in the form of a cult formed by Gnomey, and that evil will always exist as long as there is good, the deal is broken and they go to stop him. For years, this episode [[LoseEpisode never aired in the United States]], only becoming available years after the show's run through the complete series DVD set and digital download.

* Deliberately invoked with the Superman books during "ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman" storyline. The last issue of the second arc, "Funeral for a Friend," ends with Superman's body being returned to its final resting place, Lois accepting that her fiancee is gone now, Luthor getting past being unable to be the one to kill Superman himself, and Jonathan Kent apparently succumbing to a grief-induced heart attack as the last page shows him flatlining. The title of the story was even called "The End," and both the title and issue credits came at the end of the comic. After that all the main Superman books went on hiatus for a couple months, with only a few specials and one-shots getting published during that period, before the books finally came back and began the "Reign of the Supermen" arc. In reality, DC was never intending to end Superman for good, and only put the books on hold to help build up the hype for Superman's eventual return.
