** ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' were rather bare of postgame content and had only the Battle Tower, while ''VideoGame/PokemonEmerald'' had the Battle Frontier, but the remakes, ''VideoGame/PokemonOmegaRubyAndAlphaSapphire'', featured the Delta Episode, in which you and a mysterious girl named Zinnia work to try to avert a meteor falling onto Hoenn by capturing Rayquaza.



** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' plays it a bit differently. Since the final sequence of the game is defeating Team Plasma, the Elite 4 and Champion come after the completion of the game, as does finding the Six Sages of Team Plasma. New cities and routes open up, such as Black City/White Forest as well.

Come ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', the postgame becomes exploring older areas from the prior game, and meeting N in the underground ruins of his castle to battle and obtain the mascot legendary of the game.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' sees the PC and Hau go on an Ultra Beast hunt on behalf of Colress. As well, the Battle Tree opens, allowing the PC to fight against several fan favorite characters from the previous years of Pokemon. Come ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'', the postgame instead becomes dismantling Team Rainbow Rocket (and the leaders of all previous villainous Teams) after they take over Lusamine's house.

* ''OperationFlashpoint'' has a very tame 'bonus level'. Years after the conflict you fly a Cessna to Everon island to reunite with old war buddies, and you can go wherever you like and explore the island with no threat of combat.

* {{Bemani}} games often have some form of an Extra Stage which you can play if you perform well. In arcade versions, this gives you an extra song for free, and most games usually have one or more secret boss songs which can only be played on Extra Stage (and sometimes only if you fulfill an even stricter set of unlock requirements simultaneously while earning the Extra Stage) for a short while after they're released. In console releases, this usually gives you a single chance to play a boss song even if you haven't unlocked it, and may automatically unlock a boss song if you beat it on Extra Stage (whereas they're usually the hardest or take the longest to unlock normally). Do well on the boss song on Extra Stage and you might get the Encore Extra Stage (a.k.a. "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin One More Extra Stage]]" in some games), which usually allows you to select the TrueFinalBoss song (or in some games, ''forces'' you to attempt it).

* The GameBoyAdvance remake of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' has the "Soul of Rebirth" option which lets you play as the KilledOffForReal party members from one of your completed saves, showing what they were doing while the main game's heroes were beating the FinalBoss. [[spoiler:It turns out they were in heaven, beating the final boss's light side.]]

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', it is possible to visit the Kanto region of the previous game via the Fast Boat after you have defeated the Elite Four. This provides another group of Gym challenges, more Pokémon to catch, and an extremely tough final battle against the main character of the previous generation, though many classic Kanto locales didn't make it into the games due to memory restrictions; the remakes on the DS were able to fully flesh out the Kanto region.
