* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' - Find a shortcut back to Federation space, which is 70 years away at maximum warp.warp (while a full success only happened in the finale, partial success was something that happened more than once -- by the series' end they had gotten more than half the distance, despite only travelling for a tenth of the projected time). At a few points of low ratings it was actually considered to let them ''succeed'' [[ReTool and continue the show with a more traditional exploring space theme]].

* ''RogueTrooper'' - In the Rogue continuity, find and kill the traitor general. They eventually manage it, which left the writers without any decent plots for future stories, which led to the [[ContinuityReboot Friday reboot]]. In this version, the goal was to get to Highguard and find out the reason for the massacre on Hill 392 and why the Norts had [=GIs=]. This was achieved even more quickly, leaving Friday without a compelling reason to have more adventures. Eventually, the writers tried having Rogue and Friday meet, but again, the two had little personal reason to actually ''do'' anything.

* ''GilligansIsland'' - Get off the island. Ironically when they finally do leave the island ("Flight of the Phoenix"-style, to boot), they miss it so much they return to make it into a resort.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', the titular character's wish to be Hokage (lately taken a backseat to "bring back Sasuke", though it's more of a passive goal that he gets closer to by just getting stronger), and to a lesser extent, Sasuke's wish to kill his own brother which was (not quite) resolved in the manga. [[spoiler:Itachi ''is'' DeadForReal, but 1)Sasuke didn't technically kill him and 2) Itachi might've been [[FindingJudas a good guy]] [[ReverseMole the whole time]].]]
