** The episode "The Last One Forever and Ever (For Real This Time) (We Fucking Mean It)" plays off as a GrandFinale, which ends with [[spoiler: Shake and Frylock dead and Meatwad starting a family.]] Three days later, the ''real'' final episode, "The Greatest Story Ever Told" was leaked onto the Creator/AdultSwim webside (and aired on tv a week later), which was more in line with a typical Aqua Teen episode.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The episode "Let's Play Bye Bye, Yoghurt" was originally intended to be the series finale, and it had the characters re-create moments from past episodes and ended with a PetTheDog moment between [[HiddenHeartOfGold Mr. Cat]] and Quack Quack. The show wound up getting renewed, but [[UnfinishedDub this was the final episode of the English dub]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{VideoGame/Gothic}}'' ''III''s GoldenEnding not only solves the main conflict of the series (the proxy war between the gods), it also places the Nameless Hero into an entirely new world with no return. It's directly stated that peace will ensue and that there is no way this happy ending could be reversed. However, thanks to ExecutiveMeddling by the publisher, the infamous Gothic III: Forsaken Gods was made, in which [[HappyEndingOverride the war didn't end, so the Nameless Hero had to return to Morgrad]], which turns the original Gothic III into this.

* ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' (and its yet-to-be-named sequel) will serve as a culmination of everything that's happened in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse up to that point, which has already been revealed to be planned out till 2028 -- a whole ''eight'' years after the release of the second film in that duology.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' was originally going to conclude with Goku defeating the Red Ribbon Army and restoring Upa's father back to life. If you read the series all the way up to there from the beginning it does really have a "finale" feeling to it, with things coming full circle by having Goku once again defeat Pilaf and encounter his grandfather Gohan for one final goodbye. Interestingly enough, the more famous example among fans (that Akira Toriyama was originally going to end the series at the Frieza saga) is only a rumor and has never actually been verified, and there were not-yet-fired [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Guns]] that would indicate otherwise. The end of the Cell saga, however, very much ''does'' feel like a finale, with Goku dying in one last HeroicSacrifice while PassingTheTorch to his son Gohan, who finally unlocks the great potential that's been hinted at ever since his introduction years earlier and defeats the BigBad who Goku couldn't.

* A rather GenreSavvy example: the season one finale of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' titled "Phineas and Ferb Get Busted" was actually made halfway through the first season; that way the producers had a final episode that they could neatly wrap up the series with all ready to air, in the event that the Creator/DisneyChannel didn't renew the show for a second season or ended up cancelling it prematurely. [[HilariousInHindsight The show naturally went on to become the longest-running series in Disney Channel history.]]

** And even ''Godzilla Final Wars'' wasn't the true end to the franchise! After the success of [[Film/Godzilla2014 the 2014 American remake]], Toho decided to bring the series out of retirement and released ''{{Film/Shin Godzilla}}'' two years later.
* ''Film/SawIII'' was clearly intended to finish the ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' series since it wraps up everything pretty nicely. There was even a box set released of the "Saw Trilogy". A few {{Sequel Hook}}s were added (Jigsaw's brief flashback, as well as the wax-covered tape and Amanda's letter) so that the series could continue. And then the senth film ''Film/Saw3D'' aka ''Saw: the Final Chapter'' was meant to be the last before ''Saw: Legacy'' was announced.

* The Pain arc from ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' 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 ([[SeasonalRot for some fans they wish that was the case]]), if it wasn't for the dangling threads of a still missing Sasuke, Tsunade being put in a comma and [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Danzo taking control of Konoha]], and [[BigBad Tobi]]'s evil plot. 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]]''.
