* Many examples in the ''ShinMegamiTensei'' series:
** Igor in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. An odd example in that Igor not only ''isn't'' the BigBad, but a valuable ally, and that his words in the Game Over screen are just him mourning the Main Character's death.
*** He also plays the NonStandardGameOver Man in ''4'' if you miss a dungeon deadline, offering to send you back in time one week to have another go.
*** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', Philemon laments that you'll die without ever unraveling the game's mystery.

* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVI'', the gatekeeper to the Realm of the Dead. Unusual for this trope is that you actually get to visit that location, alive, late in the game.

* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVII'', Rosalina is her own Game Over Man! (Er, Woman), showing up with some snarky remark after each of her many deaths. (Often she just states the obvious, but sometimes, it's to remark on how stupid the action was.)

* When you get GameOver in ''Putty'' and ''Super Putty'', Dweezil the Cat in WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes style rings says, "Too bad!" while an off-key version of ShaveAndAHaircut plays. He does that during the first stage too - except he bursts through the background.
