* 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.)

* In ''VideoGame/DarkEscape4D'', the scientist who put you in the zombie-infested ruins in the first place mockingly encourages you to continue during the countdown timer, and laments with exaggerated insincerity how your game is over when the countdown reaches 0.

The Game Over Man is the character many video games show to the player [[GameOver after getting killed]]. Often he's the GrimReaper, or a laughing BigBad. Sometimes, he offers a HaveANiceDeath message.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'':
** The Joker and/or Harley Quinn will show up with one of several taunts when you get taken out by mooks in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum''. If you get killed as the Joker, though, either Aaron Cash or Batman himself mocks you.
** Dying during a boss fight with one of the other members of the Rogues' Gallery leads to a similar taunt from one of them (like Scarecrow taunting you for dying during [[spoiler:one of his MindScrew segments]], or [[ComicBook/{{Knightfall}} Bane preparing to snap Batman's spine]] -- complete with a symptomatic quote: "The bat is broken!").
** In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', not all of the mooks follow the Joker, so the taunter will be whoever is in charge of the guys who just took you out. The Riddler will also appear, in all his {{smug|Snake}}ness, when you die in one of his death traps or fail any of his challenges.
---> "What's wrong? Has your primitive brain given up and accepted that I -- ''The Riddler!'' -- am better... than ''you''?"
** Oh boy, ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'' continues the tradition by having the villains appropriate to their areas in the game or the gang who just defeated you taunt you when you die. [[spoiler:And if you die in the Sionis Steel Mill too early in the game, you get SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, effectively spoiling the reveal of him being TheManBehindTheMan.]]
** [[SarcasmMode Suprisingly]], ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' has these as well, with this time random unaffiliated rioters and even ''Alfred and Robin'' joining the fun (Though the latter two are just lamenting your death).

* 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.
