** ''Super Boy'', an {{MSX}} version of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'' from Korean bootleg publisher Zemina, has a "ToBeContinued" message at the end of World 4-4, followed by [[EndlessGame the game repeating from World 1-1]]. ''Super Boy II'' does the same, except that the message is "END." ''Super Boy III'' has an actual ending screen.

* In ''VideoGame/LegacyOfTheWizard'', after Roas kills the dragon, he leaves the dungeon to find the rest of his family waiting. They all walk over to the house, and wave to the player, and cuts to the credits from there. The original {{MSX}} version doesn't even have any of this, skipping straight from the FinalBoss to the credits.

* This is more or less what happens when you catch all 150 Pokémon in the original ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' games. You go to the DevelopersRoom, and the producer gives you a diploma that [[CosmeticAward doesn't do anything]]. You can't even look at it whenever you want, you have to go back and talk to him whenever you want to see it again.
** This is basically the case with most other Pokédex completions. At least ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Emerald]]'' gives you a reward in Professor Birch giving you one of the Johto starters (Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile), along with an added trainer star on your Trainer Card. That would proceed to be the last game to give any real Pokédex completion reward (save the extra trainer star) until ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]]'' in 2012, which has a few nice gems for completing the Unova Pokédex and the National Pokédex too.

* ''Blue Revolver'' at least gives Mae a fleshed-out ending in which [[spoiler:she gets a particularly harsh TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and is told to stop making life-threatening Devices and she ultimately accepts her mistakes and pursues a proper career making designs for Technicians]]. Val's ending, in contrast, [[spoiler:reveals that the entire game was AllJustADream for her.]] The entirety of the dialogue is as follows:

** Some of the Game Grid parody-minigames make fun of this trope. Beating [[VideoGame/{{Gauntlet}} Dungeon Fist]] earns you the message "YOU HAVE ESCAPED THE DUNGEON! [[IntentionalEngrishForFunny CONGRATULATION!]]" and beating [[VideoGame/StreetFighter The Fighters Of Fighting]] gives you "Game Over! You Win!" (instead of "Game Over! You Lose!")

Beating Space Trip gives you the exact same explosion image you get when your ship and/or the galaxy is destroyed, with a helpful note explaining that ''this'' explosion is the BigBad getting annihilated.

* The ExcusePlot of ''VideoGame/EquinTheLantern'' has an adventurer diving into a 50-floor dungeon to find a magical multicolored Lantern and [[GuideDangIt figure out what it does]]. Once you do get there, the Lantern faintly flashes white as the narrator reveals its purpose was simply to be [[ItsTheJourneyThatCounts a goal for strong warriors to work for.]] Your character then disappears, with the usual logfile stating he died of old age at floor 51.
* ''[[VideoGame/MissionMainframe Mission: Mainframe]]'' is an early {{roguelike}} from the '80s with the unusual theme of the player entering an office building to defeat the [[MasterComputer computer mainframe]] [[AIIsACrapshoot that has taken over]]. After hours and hours of gameplay that may result in going through characters like tissue paper, [[http://crpgaddict.blogspot.com/2011/01/mission-mainframe-won.html your reward for winning]] is a single message reading "Congratulations! You saved the world from the Maniacal Mainframe."
