* 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]].

* ''DeadRising'' has several endings, depending on what you have and have not completed when the timer runs out. ''All'' are downer endings. But the A ending is a downer ending which, post-credits, leads to Overtime Mode. Overtime Mode offers a couple more hours of story, introducing along the way several new environments and new kinds of gameplay, finally allowing you to get the "True Ending". Which itself leads to ''another'' mode of gameplay (although there is no story after this point).

* In ''VideoGame/Destiny'', by the time you've beaten the last main story mission, you'll be at the maximum of Level 20. Thought you were done? No. Firstly, 20 is only the level cap for ''experience'' levelling: experience now only affects your gear and abilities. Secondly, you can go beyond 20 by collecting "Light" from stronger armor. How do you get stronger weapons and armor? Well, you'll have to work for it by either playing bounties to increase your faction reputations (which then unlocks the ability to purchase gear of varying quality from their leaders), hoping you get them as a reward for participating in certain activities (such as the "Heroic" missions and strikes that are unlocked at this point as well -- which are higher-levelled versions of missions with good rewards), grinding for materials and currencies used to buy or upgrade gear (especially from the rare item vendor Xur, who is only present on Fridays and Saturdays). All this work leads up to the raids, which are by far the TrueFinalBoss of the game (and where you can, sometimes, find the rarest gear in the game). Long story short, the "end" of the game is where your grind begins.
