* Though ''Theatre/DerRingDesNibelungen'' was not originally conceived as a trilogy, it was already four plays by the time Creator/RichardWagner began composing the music, and is not commonly thought of as a trilogy, its official heading is "a stage festival play for three days and one evening before."

* Philip Pullman's ''[[Literature/HisDarkMaterials His Dark Materials]]'' series was originally a trilogy. It was followed a few years later with two novellas, Lyra's Oxford and Once Upon a Time in the North, and another full novel, The Book of Dust, is expected... [[SequelGap eventually]] (as of this writing, almost twenty years have passed since the publication of the first book).

* Meg Cabot's ''PrincessDiaries'' series was planned to be a trilogy, and the first three books do make for a complete story, but Cabot kept writing books until they reached the number of ten, not counting spin-offs.

Added DiffLines:

* The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse is an interesting case in that the currently untitled fourth Avengers film will be the first time a sub-franchise will be more than a trilogy. That said, the story arcs of individual characters such as Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America have evolved over the course of their solo film trilogies in addition to the other films they appear in, blurring the distinction of what constitutes an individual film series and the franchise as a whole. Further, the untitled Avengers film is supposed to act as a culmination of the previous ten years of film, but it will most surely continue after that.

* After the release of ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry 3: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals'', series creator Al Lowe insisted that there wouldn't be a ''Larry [[ExactWords 4]]'', partly thanks to how Lowe essentially wrote himself into a corner without any idea how Larry 3's ending could lead into a sequel. Instead, he chose to skip the fourth installment (retroactively referred to as ''Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies'') completely and carry on straight into ''Leisure Suit Larry 5: Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work'', where the absence of a fourth game is actually a ''plot point'', and both Larry has amnesia because the BigBad stole the Larry 4 disks, and weaseled out of paying Patti for her work on the score.

* ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'' is the definitive ending for the story of Ellen Ripley, who died by simultaneously falling into molten lead and giving birth to a Xenomorph queen. However, ''Film/AlienResurrection'' brought the character back as a clone who finally made it to Earth. Up until the release of the ''Alien Legacy'' box set in 2000, the first three movies were still packaged in one case as the "Alien Trilogy", with the fourth film packed in separately. It's also been released as a "Quadrilogy"[[note]]the correct word for a sequence of four is "tetralogy"[[/note]] and an "Anthology" (to say nothing of the spinoff ''Franchise/AlienVsPredator'' films or the 2012 pseudo-prequel ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'').

** The French translations of large fantasy cycles almost never use the words "trilogie", or "tetralogie", or whatever, even when they were used for the original. This is because the publishers smelled the cash-cow and made it an habit to split each book into two, three, or even four parts. The French version of ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' is currently a ''dodecalogy'' and this bizarro-version of the TrilogyCreep will eventually require the French speaking fans to shell upward of 200 euros just to get the completed series in paperback.

** Series co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto originally intended the original VideoGame/Metroid, VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus and VideoGame/SuperMetroid to be a trilogy, with ''Super'' being the conclusion of a clear narrative structure (Samus defeats Mother Brain and the Space Pirates, Metroids start becoming a galactic threat so Samus terminates all but one, Space Pirates and a revived Mother Brain steal the last Metroid for their plans and get defeated again). Then VideoGame/MetroidFusion (which is Metroid IV as seen in the title screen) happened, which featured almost none of the previous plot threads, instead having Samus face off against a new threat that justified the existence of the aforementioned Metroids.
