* [[GraduateFromTheStory Graduation]]: If the series centers on kids in school, expect this to be the final episode, especially if it's a high school series. A series centered on college students rarely have this as an ending (as most college shows, whether or not they're spin-offs, don't last) but the graduation ending on college shows does exist.

* [[GraduateFromTheStory Graduation]]: If the series centers on kids in school, expect this to be the final episode, especially if it's a high school series. If it's a live action show with aging actors who would resemble graduating high school students by the end of production, then it's all the better.

* ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' has had so many {{series fauxnale}}s that several episodes fall into some of these tropes. "Lil Sebastian" (Season 3 finale) falls into the AndTheAdventureContinues trope, with Leslie thinking about running for city council, Tom quitting his job, and Ron's ex-wife Tammy 1's return. "Leslie and Ben" falls into the wedding trope, with Leslie and Ben's wedding. "Moving Up" is a Distant Finale, with a 3 year TimeSkip. The actual series finale is a WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue.
