* ''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'').

Like ''Adventure'' that came later, the ending fanfare was simple and consdiered novel for 1979.

* ''VideoGame/{{Adventure}}'': The screen flashes. (To be fair, though, most Atari 2600 games didn't have an ending at all, so a flashing screen and a fanfare was a big deal in 1978)

* ''VideoGame/{{Adventure}}'': ''VideoGame/{{Adventure}}'', the original Atari VCS (later 2600) game: The screen flashes. (To be fair, though, flashes and a triumphant fanfare plays. However, most video games -- let alone the Atari 2600 games VCS -- didn't have an ending at all, so a flashing screen and a sequence; the fanfare that was included was considered novel for the era.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: The Game'' offers a short outro, which quickly cuts to the credits rolling over the loading screen. Said outro is also anticlimactic, confusing, and makes no sense if you haven't watched the DVD movie on which it was based... and actually makes less sense if you have, because the game's ending directly contradicts the movie's.

* The NES game ''Fox's PeterPanAndThePirates'', while a decent game representation of the cartoon series, featured one of the most pathetic game endings ever. After defeating the final boss, Captain Hook, the player was "rewarded" with a full-screen image of Peter and the words "I win. It's so much fun being Peter Pan."

** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'' has nothing but a screen with "YOU COMPLETED THE GAME" and a bunch of random pictures once you finally complete the last area. Thank ye gods that the following games introduced an actual plot.
