* No matter how many times [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] manages to find the right killer, get the information out of someone, beat an "unbeatable" lawyer, or just generally be proven ''right'', by the next game/case he's still a flat-broke ButtMonkey of a lawyer who nobody takes seriously except for Maya, Pearl, and (sometimes) Gumshoe. Well, until ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', where he's a [[spoiler: BadAss, [[CrazyPrepared crazily prepared]], GuileHero [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]]]].

** Of course, it's highly unlikely that they - or anyone - is going to find the legendary treasure One Piece, assuming that it ''is'' a treasure. As a MacGuffin that drives the entire plot of the series, Gold Roger's treasure will likely not be seen until the finale.

** In "Hes Too Sexy for His Fat", Peter gets plastic surgery, resulting in a fit, handsome guy. This being ''Family Guy'', the episode ended with him falling into a vat of lard and becoming fat again. Even worse was the episode where Lois gains a lot of weight after Peter's vasectomy. In the end she has quickie liposuction and surgery and ends up looking exactly as though she had never gained the weight at all.

Peter in his episode lampshades the trope by proudly stating he didn't learn his lesson.[[note]]The cast and writer commentary stated that they had no idea on how to end the episode, so they settled with Peter learning jack shit.[[/note]]

** Similarly, in "Baby Not On Board," Lois snaps and yells at Peter for constantly getting distracted from what she asks him to do and tells him just how stupid he can be. Peter retorts with passive aggressiveness about how he is flawed and that's just who he is (by repeating John Candy's speech in Film/PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles nearly verbatim). Lois just takes it at face value, apologizes, and Peter is back to his usual antics.

** ''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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
