* In-universe example from ''TheDarkEye''. Theatre plays in Maraskan have the tradition to [[ThrowItIn pick up]] every suggestion by the audience. After the [[KillThemAll usually messy]] climax, a narrator has the task to explain all the strange [[PlotDerailment twists of destiny]] and the ways, they show AnAesop. This can take up to a third of the whole play.

* On a similar note, the [[NoEnding abruptness of the end]] and thus lack of Denouement in the final ''Franchise/MassEffect'' game... well, the fan outcry isn't pretty. It was so bad that {{Bioware}} went back and patched in a more detailed version. Not exactly done to satisfaction for some, but at least it finally explained a few things.

It is fairly [[UniversalTrope ubiquitous]], though not all stories have dénouements. How final and extensive it is depends on the scale of the plot -- and whether there may be a sequel. For a HappyEnding or even BittersweetEnding, this is generally where the happiness is shown. As a consequence, [[RuleOfDrama many usual rules -- directed at keeping conflict and suspense going]] -- are suspended here. The LawOfInverseFertility, for instance, does not apply; if TheHero and the LoveInterest married at the climax, a dénouement may show them [[BabiesEverAfter happily anticipating the birth of, or cooing over, their first child]].
