''Tropes related to letting a story go on for longer than it might have. If a series keeps going for a long time but keeps getting different stories to go with its new installments, that's [[FranchiseZombie something]] [[CashCowFranchise else.]] No examples of works here, please. Leave it in the relevant trope entries. Yep, not even [[DragonBall the Namek]] [[HypocrisyNod saga.]]''
* OvertookTheManga, although sometimes this results in new stories as opposed to the same story taking longer.
