** One of the missions in ''Freespace 2'' where you need to protect a cruiser. Towards the end of the mission, the cruiser gets destroyed and you think you lost, but that's actually part of the story. This troper reset the mission a bunch of times when the cruiser was destroyed, actually thinking that the mission failed.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' has a mission near the end where you need to shut down the simulated world you're in. Near the end of the mission the simulation appears to crash, displaying a bunch of fake error messages and then cutting to a mock-up of the ''VideoGame/SaintsRow1'' title screen. The game begins again, outside of the simulation, after pressing Continue here.

* ''VideoGame/NeverendingNightmares'' has plenty of instances of this. There are multiple times where Thomas is put in an inescapable situation (such as walking in a room with an enemy and the door locks behind him) and FailureIsTheOnlyOption. And sometimes, his sister would be killed instead. But these serve to progress the plot by having Thomas wake up in his next dream.

** Once Kratos [[spoiler:obtains Pandora's Box, Ares senses this happening and kills Kratos by ''throwing a pillar from hundreds of miles away'' and impaling him. Instead of getting the GameOver screen and restarting from a checkpoint, Kratos shows up in Hades.]]

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has one nearer to the end of the game in which your party can either surrender to or fight Ser Cauthrien and her rather sizable group of mooks. She's a tough enemy if you aren't sufficiently leveled, and while it is possible to defeat her it's not easy. Losing the fight doesn't kill you - instead the game treats it as though you had surrendered, and you're treated to an extra quest that has some of the funniest lines in the game.

* Subverted in ''[[VideoGame/HenryStickminSeries Escaping the Prison]]'' if you use the jetpack at the end of the Sneaky route. The jetpack fails to start at first and a [[HaveANiceDeath fail screen]] pops up for a moment but then disappears when the jetpack suddenly starts working after all... only for it to send Henry crashing right back into his prison cell and the ''real'' fail screen to appear then.

[[folder:PuzzleGame]] * In ''[[DeadlyRoomsOfDeath DROD]]: The Second Sky'', Beethro inevitably fails to prevent the Turning (the game's primary goal). However, after the Turning happens, a sequence of events leads to him going back in time and getting another shot. [[/folder]]

The Presidents Daughter is no longer a trope.
* In one level of ''[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3]]'', you play as an agent of the Russian equivalent of the Secret Service, trying to protect the Russian President from an assassination attempt. At the end of the level, a helicopter arrives to rescue you, [[spoiler:but it's Makarov. A "Mission Failed" indicator comes up, and Makarov takes the President prisoner, and kills you. Well, sort of. You're still able to get up, kick asses and save ThePresidentsDaughter in the co-op mission, somehow.]]

* The game ''Franchise/{{X-Men}}'' for the Sega Genesis asks you to fission the mail; you need to hit the "Reset" button on the console to continue the game at one point. If you were playing the game on a Sega Nomad portable, [[{{Unwinnable}} you got boned]] because the Nomad has no reset button. There is reputedly another way to get past this segment, but it's [[GuideDangIt so obscure that, if it exists, almost no-one knows about it.]]
