* The NES adaptation of ''VideoGame/{{Beetlejuice}}'' rewards the player for completing eight absurdly difficult levels with roughly thirty seconds of the title character's head and some written text in which he talks about how great he is.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' managed to earn widespread notoriety for its ending - a choice between three different options that had ''implied'' results, but which ultimately boiled down to choosing the colour of the big setting-wrecking space explosion, resulting from a mixture of ExecutiveMeddling, the departure of Drew Karpyshyn, and his successor going behind the backs of the rest of the writing team. Thankfully the Extended Cut at least ''attempted'' to repair some of the damage it did to Bioware's reputation and make the various endings actually provide closure.
** The original (pre-Extended Cut) ending included a message after completing the game: "Commander Shepard has become a legend by ending the Reaper threat. Now you can continue to build that legend through further gameplay and downloadable content." Asking the player to go out and buy DLC after such a disappointing ending was an extra KickTheDog moment for many.

* In ''VideoGame/{{NoMansSky}}'' lots of hype was built up about reaching the center of the galaxy. What will you find there? What happens? [[spoiler:Upon triggering the hyperdrive jump, you zoom out of the current galaxy, zoom into another galaxy, and start over with your current exosuit, multi-tool, and ship, but all tech is critically damaged on all three. You even start the new galaxy the same way you started the old one.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'' parodies this trope by including a "cheat code" (Ctrl-W) which allows you to instantly win the game. If you use it, you just get a screen which says "You Win!" followed by the credits.

** "Superman," another Atari VCS action-adventure game that was released just a few months earlier, had just a simple three-note congratulatory tune that played after the player completed his objective (repairing a bridge destroyed by Lex Luthor, capturing and sending to jail Luthor and all of his underlings, turning back into Clark Kent and returning to the ''Daily Planet'').
