* ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge'' has the infamous GainaxEnding which implies that the creators just wanted the series to end or screw over whoever would take over the series after they left. ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', the next game in the series, fixed the second problem by way of AllJustADream.

* The generally-well-received ''[[Anime/YuGiOh Yu-Gi-Oh Jr.]]'' trilogy by Tropers/{{Maedar}} (a {{Continuation}} series) had plans for a follow-up, but they went on the back burner for a while so he could work on other projects. When he returned to the setting with ''Legacy of the Sorcerer Kings'', the story didn't do nearly as well as its predecessors, with many readers complaining in particular about its AlwaysChaoticEvil portrayal of atheists. Its sequel, ''Soul of Silicon'', was all but ignored, and thus Corvello used the story's epilogue as a WhereAreTheyNow ending that completely closed off the setting.

* On May 6, 2017 (Free Comic Book Day), Pepe the Frog was killed off by its creator, Matt Furie, after it was co-opted by the alt-right and other white nationalist groups, as well as Furie's failed attempt to reclaim his character through his #[=SavePepe=] campaign.

Subverted when Furie [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/615106574/save-pepe Kickstarted a comic about Pepe's resurrection]], possibly as a response to the alt-right reacting to Furie's giving up on Pepe by acting as if they owned him, to the point of publishing a children's book about him ([[https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/vbbdz3/a-texas-assistant-principal-wrote-an-alt-right-childrens-book article 1]], [[https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/ywwxj7/pepe-the-frogs-creator-gets-alt-right-childrens-book-pulled-vows-to-aggressively-enforce-his-intellectual-property article 2]]).

* {{Infocom}}'s ''VideoGame/{{Enchanter}}'' trilogy, set in the same universe as the ''VideoGame/{{Zork}}'' trilogy, ended with [[TheMagicGoesAway all magic in the world being destroyed]] in ''Spellbreaker'' because it was the only way to stop the BigBad from remaking the world in its own image. However, this did not prevent two more games set in that universe (''Beyond Zork'', which takes place concurrently with ''Spellbreaker'', and ''VideoGame/ZorkZero'', which is set many years before), from being published before Infocom's demise presumably prevented further official sequels for good. It also didn't prevent Activision from creating graphical Zork games set centuries afterward in which another age of magic occurred.

** This all is largely exactly due to the situation mentioned in the trope description: Tomino desn't own the rights to the UC, but was usually given the free reigns over the creative side of the production. This, however, looks to change recenty, as Creator/{{Bandai}}, which does own the rights, seems to push forth the alternative canon based [[Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin on the manga]] written by [[Creator/YasuhikoYoshikazu his former collaborator]], and [[Literature/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn several light novels]] which, for now, appear to contradict a lot of things written by Tomino.

* JohnByrne similarly did this to ''Comicbook/IronMan'', leaving the book with Tony Stark on death's door thanks to a techno-organic virus eating away at his central nervous system with any use of the titular armor significantly shortening his lifespan.
