** ''The Phantom Pain'' does this more subtly by ending at [[BookEnds the beginning of the original]] ''{{VideoGame/Metal Gear|1}}'', thereby ending the prequel saga. Barring going even ''further'' back to the time of the Cobra Unit or {{Updated Rerelease}}s of the two UsefulNotes/{{MSX}}2 games, the franchise has probably been fully finished.

* ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge'' has the infamous mind screw ending which implies that the creators just wanted the series to end or screw over whoever would take over the series after they left. ''Curse of Monkey Island'', the next game in the series, fixed the 2nd problem by way of AllJustADream.

* This was one worry about Creator/GamesWorkshop's treatment of the flagging ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' franchise with the ''[[TabletopGame/WarhammerTheEndTimes End Times]]'' campaign, which actually lived up to its name and destroyed the world. The game wasn't dropped, however, but underwent a major retooling into ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'', a skirmish-based game with a more trademark-friendly setting (its High Elves and Orcs became "Highborn Aelfs" and "Orruks," for example). So it was ultimately a case of "torch the franchise and [[ContinuityReboot reboot it]]." [[RetGone Except the Tomb Kings have been completely discontinued]].

* After five seasons the writers of ''Series/TheBrittasEmpire'' were done with the series, and ended the final episode by killing the main character Gordon Brittas very definitely. Due to the series' popularity BBC continued it for another two seasons under different writers, with the script resulting to literal DivineIntervention to get Brittas back. Then ''their'' final episode ended on possibly even more depressing note as the entire series turned out to have been AllJustADream by Brittas as he was napping on the bus on the way to the job interview for the position where he started in the first episode.

When this plan fell through, he took a different approach: ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' reveals that Armageddon has ruined the world only for a dying Raiden to invoke [[ResetButton a different kind of reboot]].

** Creator/HideoKojima attempted this approach with ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty''. This is why we got the infamous Synopsis/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty ending. While it might have been Kojima [[TrollingCreator explicitly trolling the fanbase]], he had already stated that it would be [[RunningGag his final entry]] in the ''Metal Gear'' series.:
