* ''Webcomic/PowerupComics'' has a bizarre MetaFiction example: The comic was put on hiatus after (fictional) "creative differences" between Shadow and Chug. The comic came back abruptly in late 2016 without addressing this.

** Sort of lampshaded in one Creator/DonRosa story where the money bin is totally destroyed and Scrooge (after managing to retrieve all his money) comments on how lucky it is that he has "pre-fab bin" on standby in case of just such an emergency.

* In Season Two Jack learns to "[[NotQuiteFlight jump good]]" in order to fight the rather large Aku. Nothing seemed to stop Jack from slaying Aku and/or getting to the portal and they... just cut it short there! No explanation, no flashbacks, no nothing! It is made even worse when it is given a {{Continuity Nod}} in a later episode.

* The plotlines of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' frequently devolve into total chaos -- accompanied by either massive property damage or a [[ThunderingHerd run-from-the-lynch-mob chase scene]] -- but the chaos is always resolved offscreen between episodes. The other half of the plots end up with something apparently permanent happening to Ataru: getting split into two exact clones, or getting trapped in an alternate dimension, or getting his house overrun with mirror-demons, just to name a few. All of these consequences always end offscreen by the next chapter.
* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'':
** Itoshiki apparently dies in one episode and runs away after being unable to figure out if he is really himself in another. He's back next episode without explanation.
** He actually is killed by his female "admirers" in the class in the middle of one episode in Zan, and is alive in the next scene. Maybe it never happened? Maybe he just got better? Does it matter?
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Happens to the Team Rocket trio arguably in every episode that ends with them blasting off again, but three notable instances early on in the series stand out: 1) ''Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon'' in which they are last shown sealed inside a cave with the aforementioned Pokémon, who were previously implied to be aggressive predators. 2) ''Abra and the Psychic Showdown'', in which Jessie and James are left paralyzed for the entirety of the episode after an encounter with Sabrina's doll, and 3) ''Viva Las Lapras'', in which Team Rocket is arrested at the end, in one of the few times in the entire series (the previous time it happened had a scene where they dug out of prison). Cassidy and Butch have gone to jail several times, but it's usually stated that Giovanni springs for their release, something he's unlikely to do for Jessie and James.
** Happens to Ash at one time, in a way that almost lampshades it. At the end of one episode, Ash gets accidentally turned into a Pikachu. The next episode starts just in time for the spell to wear off.
* Mugen, Jin, and Fuu ''die'' in one episode of ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''. This episode is never mentioned again and the characters are alive again in the next episode. This is never explained.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', a show that's heavy enough on continuity to reach [[ContinuityLockout lockout levels]], nonetheless has one example of this in "Nellis". The episode starts with Archer saying that he's on the no-fly list (and the fictious no-train list) but the very next episode starts with him in an airport, flying to meet Lana's parents. The episode also has him invading Area 51 and stealing a plane by impersonating a CIA official, which is something that the show wouldn't normally gloss over.

* Common in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', notably so when Typically ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' episodes end with the [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo being maintained]]. Jack survives unchanged, Aku escapes death, lesser antagonists are killed or defeated utterly, whatever plot device Jack was planning to use to return to his own time is realized as a fake, destroyed, or taken by someone else. Now and then it ''isn't'', and then this trope comes into play.
* In Season Two
Jack learns to "jump good" "[[NotQuiteFlight jump good]]" in order to fight the rather large Aku. Nothing seemed to stop Jack from slaying Aku and/or getting to the portal and they... just cut it short there! No explanation, no flashbacks, no nothing!It nothing! It is made even worse when it is given a {{Continuity Nod}} in a later episode...episode.
** Then there's Jack actually managing to get his hands on the time-travel-related bauble of the episode and ''keeping it'', fighting off Aku and looking at the intact gems in his hands with satisfaction. They are never seen or referenced again.
