* The original NES ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' 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.
** Some later releases of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' has the Master Quest, which rearranges the dungeons to make the puzzles harder and more confusing and the locations of items such as Golden Skulltulas are changed. The 3DS remake takes it up a notch, as you lose double the hearts, the layout is mirrored, Sheikah Stones are removed AND it's unlocked literally after you finish the basic game.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has Hero Mode, which has the same "lose double the hearts, enemies can take more damage" condition, but takes hearts out of the game entirely, making healing with potions your default option. All of your resources such as raw materials and bugs are carried over, though, meaning that it's easier to upgrade your gear and potions before heading to the surface.

* The original NES ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' has a "Second Quest" ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'' are one (two?) of the very few Zelda games that let you save after beating the final boss. This is because the story isn't actually over--after beating either Seasons or Ages, you get a code that lets you continue the plot in the ''other'' game, leading up to a confrontation with the TrueFinalBoss. In effect, the entire second game becomes accessible after ExtendedGameplay for the first. After that, you beat the game. Basically, you can play a NewGamePlus of ''both'' games; perhaps in 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.

** ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'' has a huge focus on this as well. With tons of quests, bonus bosses, and secret party members that require the game to be beaten first.

** ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'' has a huge focus on this as well. With tons of quests, bonus bosses, and secret party members that require the game to be beaten first. The epilogue is of such size, that it's been said (and perhaps accurately so) that the entire main game is just a tutorial compared to the massive epilogue.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', or more accurately ''[[UpdatedRerelease Platinum]]'', after you stop the BigBad and defeat the Champion, an extra island with bonus minigames opens, which is the setting for the temporary resurgence of Team Galactic under Admin [[ItsAllAboutMe Charon]]. Once his greedy plot is stopped, the other Admins [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere go their separate ways]], since their charismatic leader Cyrus had disappeared and they all despised Charon, who didn't even bother carrying on Cyrus' legacy.

----* ''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=].
