* Akira Toriyama is particularly bad at this, to the point where a recurring ''Manga/DragonBall'' character simply disappears and his only explanation was that he forgot about her.

* Creator/RobertFrost was once confronted by a fan who laid out a deep, thorough, and insightful analysis of "Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening", after which the fan asked "Is that what you meant to say in the poem?" Frost's response was "It is now".

* This is the ultimate reaction towards Poison's AmbiguousGender in ''VideoGame/FinalFight''; she started out as a [=MtF=] {{transsexual}} [[ShesAManInJapan in Japan]], became a natural woman in the early Americanised games, and finally the creators shrugging their shoulders as to whether she is (and, if so, whether she's pre- or post-gender reassignment surgery) or isn't a transwoman.

* On a related theme, Terry Pratchett is on record as having warned would-be researchers and PhD candidates in Literature[[note]]An accusation Terry particularly resented - he argued that he wanted people to read his books ''for pleasure''[[/note]] that as he finishes every book, he wipes the computer files clean so that any first drafts, notes or interim drafts will never be available to base a thesis around. Whether ''all'' the files were wiped before his death, as he seemed to want, is yet to be seen. [[Creator/RhiannaPratchett His daughter]] is set against any continuation of the series as "the books are sacred to Dad", but it's still possible we may see "fragments" of novels and "outline plots" being published "as is", in a similar manner to ''Literature/TheSalmonOfDoubt''.

* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'': Jeph Jaques intentionally left it ambiguous as to whether or not transwoman Claire has had reassignment surgery or not, and has no plans to clarify (pun not intended).

* There have been several contradicting opinions by the actors and other people involved in ''Film/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill'' as to a complete translation of KlaatuBaradaNikto, the phrase used to stop Gort's rampage. Klaatu, obviously, is the protagonist of the movie, and one can assume the other two words are something important in his language. Robert Wise, the film's director, related a story he had with Edmund North, the screenplay writer, saying North told him, "Well, it's just something I kind of cooked up. I thought it sounded good."

* For ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', this trope came into place for the DistantFinale in ''WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers'', which depicted Timmy's two children Tommy and Tammy, whose mother was never seen nor mentioned. Butch Hartman decided to respond with that there is no answer to who their mother is and that she can be whoever you want her to be.
