** Even better in the vanilla version where due to a [[GoodBadBugs bug]] you could use an instant-takedown on [[spoiler: Jaron Namir]] during his boss-battle, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elVCxc0hwBs ending it instantly with a takedown cinematic]].

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' sometimes has randomly-triggered finishing move cutscenes when you defeat enemies; there are a number of different ones depending on how you did it (with a weapon, unarmed combat, ShieldBash, whatever). Originally, these were only available if you killed an enemy with a melee attack (because of the LudicrousGibs potential), but later patches added in coup de grâce cutscenes for bows (ArrowCam) and magical projectile attacks as well.

* ''SoulCalibur IV'', at least for some character's stories. Others just show the BigBad dying, etc.

* Done to various lengths in most ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' games, but it's played up the most in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3''. After [[ImplacableMan all]] [[HeroKiller the]] [[SuperPersistentPredator shit]] [[ScarilyCompetentTracker Nemesis]] [[WhyWontYouDie put]] [[NearVillainVictory you]] [[BossInMookClothing through]], his badly mutilated body ''still'' drags itself toward you for one final strike after the final battle. You're free to just flee and let the impending nuke take him out, but it is a ''hell of a lot more satisfying'' to watch Jill pump him full of high-calibre magnum rounds and finish the bastard off once and for all.

** In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'', the free-fall battle against Meta-Ridley ends with Samus landing on Ridley's head, sticking her ArmCannon down his throat, and blasting away. She then leaves him to [[DisneyVillainDeath continue falling]] while [[CatchAFallingStar Rundas swoops down]] to return her to the surface. [[spoiler:[[NoOneCouldSurviveThat He survives]], of course, and returns near the end of the game as Omega Ridley.

* The ending of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' shows Link ramming his sword into Ganondorf's head and fusing with the power of the triforce to turn him to stone for all eternity (or until they decide they need him for a Windwaker-verse game again).

* In ''BanjoKazooie'', not only is the coup de grace done in a cutscene, it's not even Banjo or Kazooie who directly delivers it; the player's last relevant action is to release the Jinjonator, who defeats Gruntilda in a cutscene shortly afterward.

* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns'', this happens twice with bosses. Once after you deliver the final blow to whatever critter the Tiki of that world is possessing (showing the critter fall unconscious in an over-the-top manner), and one where he punches out that Tiki. The latter comes with ActionCommands to add more hits!
