* In the WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures fic ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', even though Jade's DangerouslyGenreSavvy BatmanGambit to steal the masks from Section 13 fails, SOLELY due to the SpannerInTheWorks known as Agent Wisker, she still manages to escape with information on the locations of the ''other'' set of artifacts she was looking for!

** ''Series/TheCrystalMaze'' once ran a special edition of the show where the contestants were kids. They did really well but fell down at the last hurdle - the famous crystal dome, missing out on the grand prize - a trip to Disneyland. Or so they thought. In what also counts as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for the show, the host suddenly revealed that they were going to Disneyland anyway.

More conventionally, every competitor, regardless of how well they did, got a replica of one of the crystals.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Series/BlanketyBlank'' had "The Blankety Blank chequebook and pen!", [[{{Spoonerism}} spoonerised]] in the Les Dawson era as "chequepen and book!"

** If the contestants misses buckets 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 on ''[[Series/TheBozoShow Bozo's Grand Prize Game]]'' They keep the prize (If they miss bucket 1, They just keep on going until the ping-pong ball lands on Bucket 1).

* In a number of the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' video games, losing a set number of times (normally 10 times) unlocks the SecretCharacter Mokuba, Kaiba's BrattyHalfPint little brother. As should be obvious, he is the easiest duelist to beat by a good margin, so the game is basically insulting you by giving you the 'privilege' of playing with one of the main character's younger siblings until you get better.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Miitomo}}'', the Miitomo Drop game has a few spaces on the bottom that award candy, if you were unfortunate enough to not land near a clothing item.

** On the PBS Kids Sprout game show: ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego'', The gumshoe would get a consolation prize if they did not complete a round. If the gumshoe came in third place in round 1, They would get a traveling bag, It contains a atlas book, an official Carmen Sandiego wristwatch, a Carmen Sandiego T-Shirt, and subscription to the National Geographic World Magazine. If the gumshoe did not complete round 2 (Jailtime Challenge), They would get a world band radio. If the winning gumshoe did not complete the map round in 45 seconds (Or 60 seconds if they are using the Asia map), They would get a portable CD player and some selection of [=CDs=] from around the world.

* The ''Stacker'' ArcadeGame lets you pick a "Consolation Prize!" when you're close to the top. However, you only have one opportunity to take said prize - losing while going for the Major Prizes gets you nothing. That said, since the minor prizes are things like pencils and small plastic toys and the major prizes are usually video game consoles or iPods, not too many people choose the consolation prize.

* The Stone Award is what you receive when you ''completely'' blow a level in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''. Yes, this game is cruel enough that they invented a level ''below'' Bronze just in case you completely botch things. Which is quite likely on your first (few) playthrough(s).
