** ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' went through thirty-eight volumes of Ataru chasing after other women and refusing admitting outloud what he loved Lum. Finally, when the story left him no option other than acknowledging his feelings, ResetButton was pressed. The only meaningful change in the status-quo was Shinobu breaking up with Ataru, and that change happened in the beginning and [[ExecutiveMeddling it was forced on Takahashi by her editors]]. This was lampshaded in a story arc where several characters have the chance to make a future tailored to her needs. Shinobu is unsure of what asking, and thus she decides nothing changes. Shortly after she got to see that future and she realized it was a dumb idea.

** Ash will never win a League arc based on the main series's regions. [[CurbStompBattle Painfully enforced]] in the Sinnoh League, where Ash was bested by [[GodModeSue Tobias]] and his [[OlympusMons Darkrai and Latios]]. The fact that Ash put a better dent in his team than the person Tobias faced next implied that Ash would have won the whole tournament if it weren't for the [[DiabolusExMachina poorly-established man]]. It happens ''again'' in the Kalos League, but this time Ash lost by way of [[GameplayAndStorySegregation the anime ignoring]] [[ElementalRockPaperScissors the basic function of Pokemon battles]].

* Zig-zagged with WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse. Steven will always live in the beach house. His dad will always live in the van and work at the car wash. The Gems will always stay in the temple and fight to save the Earth. However, Steven will also continuously grow stronger in using his powers, sometimes improving by leaps and bounds while training off-screen. Later episodes have him show a large amount of genre savviness as well, allowing him to become an instant expert anytime a new ability appears.
** This also applies to new characters introduced. Lapis Lazuli appeared halfway through season 1... and was promptly PutOnABus. But then she came back during the first Steven Bomb. Only to be put on a different bus. Season 3 makes it seem as though she's going to be a more recurring character from that point on though.
*** Enemy gem Peridot was treated similarly. She appeared twice before as a buildup to actually arriving on Earth in the Season 1 finale. Then she received infrequent appearances in season 2- prior to being captured by the Crystal Gems and her subsequent redemption arc. She's now appeared so many times that she's almost a main character.
*** Jasper was first seen in the season 1 finale and became a bit of an EnsembleDarkHorse. Thanks to being put on the same bus as Lapis, she did not reappear for most of season 2, and had only sporadic appearances in season 3 as an arc villain. She's now been put on another bus, one that will be very hard for her to get off of.
*** The Rubies that appeared in season 3 almost seemed like a one-off VillainOfTheWeek. Then they reappeared for the season finale. Only to be put on yet another bus.
*** This trope was why the ending of Bismuth was a foregone conclusion.
** Steven displays AesopAmnesia a few times in early episodes. Thankfully this seems more a case of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.
** Steven's relationship with other main and side characters remains virtually unchanged after establishing them. Their relationship to him, on the other hand... well, just look at Lapis and Peridot above.
*** Lars will always be a pitiable JerkWithAHeartOfJerk.
*** Connie will always be his best friend/love interest.
*** His relationship with Rose Quartz, on the other hand, is complicated. Her gem is literally a part of him, but he's never met her. The stories told to him by others make him want to live up to her example, but he feels he'll never be able to. Steven even admits that he doesn't know ho to feel about her. After the season 3 finale's shocking revelation, this will probably continue to change.
** Early in season 3, Greg receives a check for 10 million dollars. He spends a lot of money on a vacation to the Big City, but still has tons of cash left over after that episode. Enough that he can buy a car he's always wanted (used), a boat, and it doesn't bother him if rich jerks leave the car wash without paying. He also bought a tablet, but decides he doesn't actually want it.

** Most writers will callback to previous stories they created but will ignore the ones made by others so as not to mess with anyone's long-term story plans. The exception is Creator/DonRosa, who considers all CarlBarks stories canon to his own universe and has written several sequels to Barks tales.

* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''. The series begins with the dragon wizard Shendu trapped in a large stone icon attempting to recover eight talismans that contain his original power; the first season ends with Jade destroying Shendu's statue, jump-starting a series of antagonists crawling out of the woodworks to try to fill his now-vacant villainous shoes, trying to find a kind of balance between good and evil. The series ends many seasons later with Shendu, having survived beyond all of his upstarts, finally reclaiming his true body ... only to be sealed away in his statue form and his powers put back into talismans again.

* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' slipped into this - at first it actually ''did'' have a bit of continuity (Jason's teacher retiring, Andy's hairstyle changing, Andy's job being established as a columnist, the Summer Camp arc, Peter and Denise getting together) but it quickly fell into this, as with every story arc the status quo would be reset. This made the time when Phoebe and eugene visited seem somewhat odd.

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': The Netherworld is never mentioned after ''Poltergeist Report''.
* ''Manga/LoveHina'' manages to reset practically every character or relationship development, even [[spoiler:finally getting into Tokyo University or Naru shouting she loves Keitaro at the top of her lungs when he is only a few feet away seems to have no effect whatsoever]].
** Naru and Keitaro's relationship is developed gradually and gracefully in the first half of the series, going from hostility to them generally liking each other even though they refuse to admit it. The status quo effect first comes when their relationship has gotten to the point where it is all or nothing. Every time they seem to finally become a couple, the circumstances are reset. Every time they seem to think that they will never be a couple, the circumstances are reset, too.



** Naraku is such an unkillable bastard that he manages to maintain his status as the BigBad for several hundred chapters, and usually is TheManBehindTheMan for every other villain who isn't a MonsterOfTheWeek.

** Face it: Ash's Pikachu is never going to be a Raichu. This is explained in a few episodes, most notably when the Vermilion Gym match has it face its evolved form. In-universe, it's a matter of pride. In real life, it's because they'd have to redesign the series' iconic mascot. Taken to a particular extreme in the Mistralton Tower episode, in which Ash performs a DivingSave to prevent a Thunder Stone from accidentally hitting Pikachu.
** Ash will always hit the ResetButton whenever he finds out about a new region, ditching the Big Three of the last in favor of the next. Also Pikachu will continue defeating legends then losing to rookies.
** Speaking of Team Rocket, EVERY. SINGLE. TEAM ROCKET. [[CryingWolf SPLITTING UP. EPISODE.]] One has to wonder how many times the writers will recycle a plot about Team Rocket splitting up only to get back together by the end of the episode.
*** They did have a split up that lasted for several episodes in Black and White, with Meowth even being with Ash's group for a while. [[spoiler:Though Meowth was acting as TheMole.]]

** Gintoki manages to pay the rent few times by helping Otose with her problems (i.e. preventing Katherine from running off with Otose's money at the beginning, saving Otose's life). And in one chapter, Gintoki pays the rent in cash (even though he is forced to do so by Tama).

of the ''[[Anime/CowboyBebop Bebop]]'' tons of things that changed after this arc. Oh! and Gintoki left the house due the Government persecution towards him!]]
* This is in fact a very important plot point in ''Anime/ImGonnaBeAnAngel'' [[spoiler: where the heroine who throughout the whole series was aspiring to become an angel for her loved one, upon gaining her much-awaited wings decides she doesn't really want to be an angel anymore. This applies to the majority of characters. The message is that you don't have to change when your loved ones love you the way you are and that change may sometimes lead to losing all that you held precious to your heart]].
* Commonly averted with ''Manga/KOn'', which sets up the sorts of "lesson of the week" situations that you'd normally fully expect a cast in a work like this to forget about by the next episode (i.e. don't be so clingy, be more thoughtful towards your friends, study hard, etc.) but actually has them work
as far as permanent character development.
* ''Manga/LoveHina'' manages to reset practically every character or relationship development, even [[spoiler:finally getting into Tokyo University or Naru shouting she loves Keitaro at the top of her lungs when he is only a few feet away seems to have no effect whatsoever]].

Every time they seem to think that if gambling was involved then their PerpetualPoverty was probably inevitable.they will never be a couple, the circumstances are reset, too.



* ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'' runs on this trope. While there is a slow passage of time occurring and character interactions have diversified, the characters themselves and the relationships they had that were established early-on have changed only marginally, if at all, since the time the manga started. It can be inferred that this is due to the fact that any significant romantic or dramatic developments will probably disrupt the lighthearted comedic nature of the series - the author has revealed several scrapped plot-lines that were all rejected for creating some form of complications between characters.



* The "perpetually broke" version of this trope was played with in ''Manga/OnePiece''. Despite being pirates, the Straw Hats [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything don't usually have much money around]]. In one anime filler arc, they finally have gotten their hands on a pile of gold, but they end up in tightly secured Marine base. Just when they make it back to their ship and are on their way to freedom, they realize that all their gold was confiscated by the Marines. Just when you think they'll sigh and suck it up, they turn around and break into the base to get it back. However, the status quo at the time was that they had already had a bunch of treasure they just haven't sold yet, so it's kind of a wash. A couple of islands later, they have it converted to cash and, soon enough, two of their three hundred million Berries is stolen and spent before they can get it back. But at the end of it all, the money went into materials used to build them a kick ass new ship.
