*** ''Siegfried'''s finale -- let's say it begins when Siegfried finds the sleeping Brünnhilde -- lasts for about 35-40 minutes.

*** ''Siegfried'''s finale -- let's say it begins when Siegfried finds the sleeping Brünnhilde -- lasts for about 35-40 minutes. Arguably justified because Brünnhilde would only be on stage for five minutes otherwise.

* The Franchise/TalesSeries plays with this trope. In ''Symphonia'' and ''Abyss'', [[spoiler: the BigBad seemingly dies, but many parts of the storyline have yet to be resolved. Suddenly, the BigBad returns and the world is thrown into an even ''more'' dire situation than the one it was just saved from, and the heroes head to the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon for one last throw down with the final boss]]. It's actually much grander than it sounds.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_t2gE1EsKU Supa Scoopa & Mighty Scoop]], Music/{{Kyuss}} plays the final riff ''nine'' times with increasingly prolonged pauses. This is the same group that eventually led to [[QueensOfTheStoneAge Queens Of The Stone Age]] - famous abusers of [[FakeOutFadeOut fake endings]] in their songs.

** The anime was even worse in this regard, when after the aforementioned final battle, began adaptating the Konoha Hiden novels, before finally ending the series on episode 500 with [[spoiler:Naruto and Hinata's wedding]].

** It gets fixed a bit in the [=PS3=] UpdatedRerelease, as [[spoiler:the BigBad doesn't die straight away and instead accompanies his right-hand-man to the final dungeon]]. Everything else is the same though.

* K.A. Applegate's ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' has the three-year Human-Yeerk War ending. Then we get into Visser One's trial and Jake's HeroicBSOD. Then we get into Ax's kidnapping. Then we get into the new war that's about to start...

** ''Film/{{Hook}}'' waffles repeatedly between whether the eponymous Captain is going to survive in shame or die by Peter's hand, and then finally decides [[TakeAThirdOption neither will do]]. As [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19911211/REVIEWS/112110301/1023 Roger Ebert]] saw it, what happens ''after that'' is overextended too -- Peter bidding farewell to the Lost Boys; the kids being reunited with Moira and Wendy; Peter bidding farewell to Tinkerbell; Peter reuniting with the kids, Moira, and Wendy; the resolution of the "lost marbles" business with Tootles...

* Trying to end one of Beethoven's symphonies is a very tedious process. For example, pointing to any phrase on the last two pages of the Seventh Symphony will give you a satisfactorily epic ending. BUT NO.
** The Fifth Symphony is also a big offender here. The Presto section at the end (beginning at bar 364 of 446), which is scored for full orchestra throughout, goes on for over six pages (out of just over fifty) and could achieve an epic ending almost anywhere after the second page, but instead it goes on and on and on. The last 29 bars of the symphony consist entirely of C major triads repeated over and over, until at last the orchestra plays a final-sounding C major chord... and then another... and then another... and then three more... and another... and finally a unison C. One has the impression Beethoven couldn't decide which ending to use, so he decided to use them all, one after the other. As noted by the commentary in [[Music/PDQBach Peter Schickele's]] "New Horizons in Music Appreciation", even just the first movement has some fake-outs.

* The final boss battle of many RPGs suffer from this, since the BigBad may often have to be defeated multiple times, in multiple, increasingly elaborate forms, before he finally dies. Sometimes even after defeating the final boss a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere immediately shows up / is summonded and the party then has to defeat ''that.''
