----* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' players call this "aftercore". Most aftercore quests technically don't require that you've beaten the [[FinalBoss Naughty Sorceress]], but many of them are balanced to players with stats well above what's needed to beat her, so if you still can't win against Her Naughtiness, [[BeefGate you might find these quests too difficult]]. Aftercore quests include:
** Explore The Sea and defeat an EldritchAbomination or three. [[RealityEnsues You'll need a way to breathe down there, though.]]
** Join up with a clan and explore Hobopolis, the Slime Tube, and Dreadsylvania.
** Explore [[BribingYourWayToVictory Item-of-the-Month]] [[http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Category:Content_Unlockers content]], such as your ancestral memories, the Game Grid, the Elemental Planes (accessed from [[{{Pun}} the Elemental Airport]]), or the psychoses of various [=NPCs=].

* The ''InazumaEleven'' games all allow you to unlock repeatable friendly matches against any story team you've beaten as well as extra teams not found in the story, of which some can only be unlocked by finishing the main story. Beating these can also unlock even more stuff, such as the ability to permanently recruit a previous GuestStarPartyMember or previously unplayable NPC into your team. So far, each successive installment has increased the amount of content, with the third game having '''over a hundred''' such teams that can only be unlocked post-story.

* The original NES ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' has a "Second Quest" that becomes accessible after you beat the game. Basically, you play the whole game over again with a different set of overworld and dungeon maps. It's just as long as the "main" game and a whole lot harder.

* ''ChainOfMemories'' has [[AnotherSideAnotherStory an entire other game]] once you beat the final boss as Sora. [[spoiler: You play as Riku, who is climbing up from the Basement to the entryway of Castle Oblivion, happening at the exact same time that Sora is climbing from the entryway to the top floor]].

* ''SplinterCell: Double Agent'' ends with an extra level that's only playable after the credits have rolled. In it, Sam Fisher takes out the remaining terrorists who escaped the JBA stronghold in the final mission, defuses a bomb, then swiftly escapes before the authorities can catch him.

Added DiffLines:

** Somewhat alleviated with the release of Destiny 2.0, otherwise known as The Taken King expansion. Bungie has revamped the Light system to now work as a "Gear Score" like in other MMO's. The new level cap is 40 and the Light level cap will continue to increase with the release of new content. The neat thing about this system is the Light level now affects what level gear you receive from drops so you should be able to steadily progress no matter what your doing, making the grind feel like less of a chore and more like a natural progression. As you improve, so too does your gear.

* [[Creator/{{Nippon Ichi}} Nippon Ichi]] absolutely ''loves'' this trope. Every strategy RPG from ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' on includes Bonus Dungeons and Bosses in large numbers. Depending on the game, some the challenges may require a New Game Plus to access. ''Videogame/LaPucelle'' has its bonus challenges placed before the final PointOfNoReturn.

Tropy's VillainExitStageLeft and give you a batch of new levels, climaxing with a battle with N. Tropy himself]].
