* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' has Zelda thank Link for saving Hyrule, the credits roll, and then you unlock the much harder second quest. Beating the second quest has the same ending with the post credits showing you how many times you died and that ""You have an amazing power and wisdom."

** If you make it all the way to the end of ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'' and didn't forget to pick up a necessary weapon and beat the boss, you get rewarded by having to play the whole game over again, with the message that "This room is an illusion and is a trap devisut by Satan". If you manage to do that, all you get is a brief scene of Arthur reuniting with the princess and the following text: "Congraturation. This story is happy end. Thank you. Being the wise and courageour knight that you are you feel strongth welling in your body. Return to starting point. Challenge again!" Yes, those spelling mistakes were in the game.

[[BlindIdiotTranslation Yes, those spelling mistakes were in the game.]] To top it all off, the very last screen after ''beating'' the game just says "Player 1 Game Over."

* After completing the [[NoProblemWithLicensedGames surprisingly fun]] ''Disney's Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' video game for UsefulNotes/PlayStation, you're treated to a brief clip from the movie, a screen that says "Congratulations" and a voice-over from a Rosie O'Donnell sound-alike congratulating you. Yep, that's it.

* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombiesHeroes'' has absolutely no real ending for the plant and zombie missions. If you beat the final mission on any side or even both sides, you are then greeted with no gems or packs, credit sequence, or even a comic sequence as seen much earlier, you are simply sent back to the mission menu and are then forced to repeat the same final mission over and over until you reset your process completely. In previous versions before silver coins[[note]]Which can only be used to get very weak Basic - Common cards[[/note]] were removed, then your only reward was your 100 coins for each final mission boss defeated if you somehow didn't obtain all your Basic - Common cards beforehand.

* Slot machines have to lock up when a win over a certain amount (in the United States, usually $1,200) is hit so that an attendant can be summoned and prepare the requisite tax forms. Winning a jackpot like this is a very exciting event for most people, which makes it a bit of a shame that many slot manufacturers don't seem to put much effort into what's displayed while waiting for the attendant to reset the machine. IGT's is probably the best, with loud, exciting music and a comparatively slick-looking screen displaying the amount won (intermittently disappearing to show the winning reel combinations again). It goes downhill from there: WMS machines will usually play at least somewhat appropriate music, but the only visual cue of what's happened is a blue and yellow box reading "Jackpot Call Attendant/HAND PAY: $(amount)". Aristocrat machines are even worse—a quiet, laid-back piano tune is played and "Call Attendant -- Jackpot $(amount)" is displayed in ''12-point [[UsefulNotes/{{Fonts}} font]]'' at the ''bottom'' of the screen. If you're not paying attention, you might have thought the machine had gone into tilt mode or something.

* ''VideoGame/Planet404'' plays with this, twice:
** This is one of the actual messages you get for beating a mission.
** [[spoiler: When you first reach Planet 404, a plain message appears, thanking you for playing. After a moment Jethro announces that the game's not over yet, and the game continues.]]

* Good as it is, the 2005 freeware PC game ''VideoGame/LaMulana'' has a rather disappointing ending. Defeat the final boss, and all you get is a short cutscene of Lemeza escaping from the ruins, followed by a single "CONGRATULATIONS!" Cue the end credits, where Lemeza's father steals the ruins' treasure off him that he worked so hard to earn and runs away. Considering that the game is very difficult, the pay-off is disappointing. Well, at least they had the courtesy to spell "congratulations" correctly, and the credits' music is good.

* ''VideoGame/XPerts'' shows your characters' escape pod jettisoning from the underwater base, the base exploding... and then you're dumped back to the opening Sega logo and title screen without even a credits roll.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Ghostbusters 1984}} Ghostbusters]]'' for the NES, a game which is generally considered near-unwinnable, ends with the Engrish message "Conglaturation!!! [[BlatantLies You have completed a great game.]] And prooved the justice of our culture. Now go and rest our heroes!" This actually fixed one spelling error ("grate" for "great") that was in the ending text of the Japanese version--or, more precisely, what was ''supposed'' to be the ending text in the Japanese version, which due to a bug displays nonsense hiragana instead.
