* The video game ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' is one of the few to feature a full vocal theme song, a parody of love songs, in which the game's AI [=GLaDOS=] talks about the events within the game before descending into the downright chilling "while you're dying I'll be still alive". [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} The sequel]] also has a similar song.
** In a rare case of Western cross-game contamination, the song is available to download (for free) on Rock Band.
** The ending theme to the flash game [[http://www.brainjuicegames.com/games.html Super Energy Apocalypse: Recycled]], which was inspired by VideoGame/{{Portal}}, is a wistful song that deals with a zombie attack.
* DrawnToLife is composed of mainly instrumental music. The end theme is a full length song WITH VOCALS about the 2 main Raposa, Mari and Jowee, trying to deal with their separation [[spoiler: after Jowee decides to join a band of pirates so that he can see the world. It turns out later that he never boarded the ship because he wanted to stay with Mari]]. It's very suprising, but even cuter. D'aww.
* "Lullaby for You" from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' which shows a calm happy setting compared to the frenzied opening theme "Twister."
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' featured an ending song in the credits with the lyrics being based on the POV of [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Aigis.]]
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' also features an ending theme in the POV of the [[HeroicMime Protagonist.]]
* The ending of VideoGame/SuperSmashBros ''Brawl'' is an unique variation: the theme is the same as the opening, except this time, the lyrics to the OminousLatinChanting are shown, allowing the player to catch the meaning of it.
* The video game ''Ō[[VideoGame/{{Okami}} kami]]'' featured a song called ''Reset'' as its ending theme.
* ''[[BackyardSports Backyard Skateboarding]]'' has an ending theme called "Skate Rock," performed by the Knights of Rockville.
* The final part of the trilogy, ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', had their ending theme as [[spoiler: a combination of the most important songs of the first (The Eight Melodies), second (Smiles and Tears), and last (Mother 3 Love Theme) parts of the series.]]
* The ''KingdomHearts'' series usually does this at the last scene just before the credits.
* ''[[SegaSuperstars Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing]]'' has "So Much More..." which even got its own EP from the singer of the song.
* Most video games that feature music over the credits need a ''lot'' of it, since it's traditional to put ''all'' the developers there. One prime example is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8L2Xgm-Hqls ending track]] for ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', which begins with the traditional JohnWilliams credits theme from the movies. But since that isn't long enough, it moves on to all the major in-game pieces of music, one after the other.
* The ending theme of ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' actually sums up the ending of the game pretty well, if a bit symbolically: [[spoiler:"Space Oddity" by David Bowie]].
* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' has the slow, somber [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDgzhpvdZx0 "Deadman's Gun"]] by Ashtar Command. [[spoiler: It's alarmingly appropriate.]]
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' contains several of these, one for every episode's ending plus one for every tea party ending. To note are the Ep 1 ending [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWDpCAt2LGI Bring the Fate]] and the Ep 8 ending/series ending [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFyzTtKNzYI ''Byakumu no Mayu -Ricordando il passato-'']] (Cocoon of White Dreams ~remembering the past~) that also counts as [[SolemnEndingTheme SolemnEndingThemes]]
* [[VideoGame/MightySwitchForce Mighty Switch Force 2]] has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Oi8Z-Jhsyg&list=FLg7Yw0vxIr5Ze_DZek8nTPw&index=2 Rescue Girl]].
* ''VideoGame/TinyBrains'' gives us "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EF7-L47ZPYk Batteries and Sockets]].
* ''VideoGame/GodHand'''s ending theme is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFSen7DRQWU truly glorious]], a BraggingThemeTune that [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong sounds remarkably similar to]] the theme from ''Anime/MazingerZ''.
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' plays a different song from Radio Mirror Park on each of its three endings. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=we1gSOyBz2g Don't Come Close]] is played on Ending A, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt3PcA4UvPA Sleepwalking]] is played on Ending B, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdIHasVWpM0 The Set-Up]] is played on Ending C.
* ''VideoGame/GreyGoo'' The ending theme is a piece comrpised off of the remixed themes of all three factions, and it's awesome "[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw4WAhyi1uY War is Evolving]].

* ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' has "Gekkou" (Moonbow) by Music/AkikoKosaka, (a composer from both the 1992 anime and [[Theatre/SeraMyu musicals]]) and performed by JPop group Music/MomoiroCloverZ. It's a sedate, wistful romantic ballad that serves to counter the [=OP=]s JPop[=/=]ProgMetal anthem.

* ''Manga/SoreGaSeiyuu'' has a variation. Similar to ''Manga/LuckyStar'', the girls sing along to famous anime themes and talk about the events of the episode, which is sandwiched in-between the actual song.
