* ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'': We never got to see the war between the Federation and the Jupiter Empire, despite the appearence that Tomino had been setting them up as an OutsideContextVillain. By the time MobileSuitVictoryGundam had rolled around it was over. It has been speculated that if the F-91 series hadn't been canceled, that they would have shown up as a BiggerBad.
** Also the fight with the the Neo-Zeon movement on Mars, who fought with souped up versions of the old Zeon suits (they called themselves the Oldsmobile Army). The story ended up being told in a short manga series.

** The [=4Kids=] dub gave Ryou Bakura an [[http://thewittyphantom.tumblr.com/post/126291168108/shadow-realm-facts-according-to-pegasus-yami offscreen moment of awesome]], given the properties of the Shadow Realm. (Even if you use the original version, it means Bakura was sent to Hell and [[LikeABadassOutOfHell somehow managed to escape]], which is itself pretty awesome.)

* One episode of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' had the captain of a submarine offer the series' main character [[WeCanRuleTogether the chance to work with him and travel the world.]] When our hero refuse despite the ''very'' generous pay, the captain forces the matter by saying that if he doesn't win their duel, he'll have to come with him. Jaden soundly defeats him, and thus has no actual obligation to take up his offer, but the captain persists and tricks Jaden's friends into leaving him behind. The episode immediately cuts to several weeks later, with Jaden's best friend brooding over the fact that he left. Jaden then comes in, battered and bruised, after having fought his way to freedom. Needless to say, his friends were overjoyed.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Tristan, Duke, and Serenity are ambushed by three [[{{Mooks}} Rare Hunters]], [[YouShallNotPass and Tristan decides to take them on himself so that Duke and Serenity can escape]]. Their escape is well shown; by the time the episode gets back to Tristan, [[CurbStompBattle all three Rare Hunters are lying on the ground at his feet]].

* ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'' episode four had an intentional example, and spent a large part of the end of the episode rubbing it in viewers' faces: [[spoiler: Shichika barely manages to defeat the mysterious white-haired badass the show had been building up for the past three episodes, thanks to Togame drafting him a brilliant strategy]]. Or so we hear, at length, from the two afterwards. The audience spends the majority of the episode with his sister, on an island miles away.
** Preview at the end of episode 3 involves parting the sea, slicing up rocks, exploding ''a whole island'', and fighting a giant shark.

** At the end of Battle City, Joey challenges Yugi to a duel with the Red-Eyes Black Dragon at stake to determine how far he's grown. The episode then ends and the outcome is not revealed, but considering Joey got the Red-Eyes Black Dragon back, he won.

* The ending of ''Anime/BioBroly'' in ''Anime/DragonBallGT''. Goku was apparently supposed to fight Broly in Hell due to the latter acting up for some unknown reason. The movie ended while Goku was going back to filling his stomach in preparation, and they never show the fight, as it ends right there. There's not even a reference to it in the next three movies, despite the immediate next movie dealing a lot about Hell and the Afterworld, namely it mingling with the mortal world.

* The MedakaBox finale sees Medaka defeat [[spoiler:the ''MOON'']] in offscreen single combat. She follows this up with an offscreen takedown of [[spoiler:[[BossRush every named character]] in the series]]. Yeah, it's that sort of series.

** Earlier, Tristan got an offscreen awesome moment in Duelist Kingdom. After punching Yami Bakura out and throwing away the Ring, he carried the unconscious Mokuba ''and'' Bakura back to the dueling platform without getting caught by guards. While going through a maze with looping flights of stairs and doors to nowhere that even had Yami Bakura confused.
