* When ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}'' was completed and a fan asked Jeff Smith what the Crown of Horns actually ''was'', Smith basically said that he couldn't give a definitive answer and that the fan would have to figure it out for himself, implying the reason for his secrecy is either the 4th, 8th, or 19th reason.

* When asked whether Lyra and Will from ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' had become lovers at twelve or thirteen or however old they are, Creator/PhilipPullman said something like, "I wasn't going to look and neither should anyone else." Pullman also has no answer as to why a few people in Lyra's world have daemons that are their own sex, or when exactly the daemon appears - during birth or after.

** In fan circles, a "pregnant Ranma" is something that is better left unanswered. TheOtherWiki once had an article on the phrase, but it's no longer up. Thanks to the magic of the Internet, a snapshot of that page is [[http://web.archive.org/web/00000000000000/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pregnant_Ranma_problem here.]]

* Acclaimed author CormacMcCarthy is notorious for this sort of response to his own work, insisting that nothing means anything and that it's all just story for the sake of story. He can be downright curmudgeonly if pressed on this point (once, famously, to Creator/OprahWinfrey, who managed to coax him out of his cave for a rare interview).

* [[YoshiyukiTomino Yoshiyuki]] "(no longer) KillEmAll" [[YoshiyukiTomino Tomino]] is perhaps the ''granddaddy'' of shrugging Gods. On many oft questioned significant story elements, particularly dealing with the endings to his many series, he steadfastly refuses to give answers, as he truly does want the people watching the show to [[WildMassGuessing create their own idea of how the story ended]]. He wasn't likely thinking of FanFiction, but you still won't get straight answers from him as to Amuro and Char's fate in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]'', or whether Loran Cehack and his [[{{Shipping}} eventual partner]] are in a married kind of love or if it's a caregiver/friend thing.

* Two pricing games on ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' (Check Game and Credit Card) have been "withdrawn". Although neither game has been played in years, the staff has not officially declared either game retired — but then again, they're also making no claims of either game coming back. So as far as they're concerned, both games may or may not be retired.

* SoundHorizon is built upon creating elaborate {{Rock Opera}}s with complicated {{Jigsaw Puzzle Plot}}s with ridiculous quantities of multi-lingual wordplay and then watching all the fans try to figure out what in the holy hell it means while refusing to explain any of it. The official statement is that Revo doesn't want to force one interpretation on the audience when WildMassGuessing is half the fun of being in the fandom. The fandom's stance is that [[TeasingCreator their brainpain]] [[TrollingCreator amuses him.]]

* Of the famously ambiguous scene in the Marabar caves in ''A Passage to India'', E.M Forster said, "In the cave it is ''either'' a man, ''or'' the supernatural, ''or'' an illusion. If I say, it becomes whatever the answer a different book. And even if I know! My writing mind is therefore a blur here, i.e, I will it to remain a blur."

* None of the editors on ''OrionsArm'' will ''ever'' answer certain questions about certain setting elements. Are the Dawn Hunters real? Why did the previous galactic empires all up and disappear? "The last--" What did they find at the Hedrile? Where, exactly, does the Fargate lead? Which of the higher Archailects actually exist? Is the universe just another Bottle Universe? Are the Amalgamation Terragen or Xeno? This is in keeping with the setting; since certain things, particularly those involving the Archailects themselves, are deemed to be ultimately impossible to explain in terms that we mere humans can grasp with our tiny organic brains.
