* ''VideoGame/NintendoWars''.

to:

* ''VideoGame/NintendoWars''.''VideoGame/NintendoWars'' has three grading for each mission. Speed is self-explanatory, based on how fast you complete the mission, Power is based on the number of enemies are destroyed from a ratio in a single turn, and Technique is based on the number of units you have than you have lost. Technique could be elevated by spamming units from all bases so that you have more troops than you lost. ''Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict'' reworked the system, especially the Power and Technique where the former is based on the damage value inflicted and number of times you attacked during your turn and the latter is based on the number of enemy units and how much they joined divided by the number of units you own and lost, meaning that spamming units is not a good idea. How you get the rank is based on the game, as in the first three Advance Wars games, you must have at least 280 points in order to get an S-rank while in Days of Ruin, you must have at least 300 points, although that game has a 150 point limit per score than the 100 in the previous games.

treasure chest that Biometal's form, and lost energy could be regained by paying to have appears when the Biometal repaired or going back and re-fighting player wins a battle will contain more money/items if the boss to get player earned a higher level.
** ''ZX Advent'' has a medal system (Gold, Silver, Bronze), with each medal being gained by beating the boss with a different SelfImposedChallenge.
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' ranks your performance after each mission, with [[SpeedRun completing the level quickly]], [[PacifistRun not killing enemies]] and not raising any alarms increasing your grade. The ranks go from C [[RankInflation up to S]].
* ''VideoGame/MischiefMakers''.
* Starting from ''VideoGame/NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStorm2''. a grading system is implemented during boss fights, particularly in how well you and how fast you get the QTE's down.
* ''VideoGame/NintendoWars''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'' rate the player's performance after each battle, based on time spent and damage received. The ratings are icons of plants; seeds represent the lowest rank and blossoming cherry trees the highest. The higher rating you get, the more money you obtain as a bonus. Even the {{Final Boss}}es have one, which pops up immediately before the EndGameResultsScreen.
grade.



* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games, starting from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', have this.
** Some other Sonic Team games that feature this include ''NightsIntoDreams'' and ''BurningRangers''.
* ''VideoGame/TraumaCenter''.
* ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' grades each level in sections, with an average given at the end. It substitutes "V" (for "Viewtiful") in place of S, and even offers a [[RankInflation rainbow V]].
* ''VideoGame/SkyGunner'' gives various score bonuses and penalties at the end of each stage, but reserves the final grade until the end of the game.
* The ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' games grade your performance on the optional repeatable matches. An S requires you to win in a complete shutout with at least 5 points, and getting all S ranks on a set of matches gets you a reward (in addition to the one you get for just beating the set).
* The ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven'' games rate your performance at the end of a song. If you do reasonably well enough, you'll get an "OK". A near-flawless performance nets you a "Superb" rating, as well as a medal toward unlocking mini-games. If you miss too many beats, you'll get told to "Try Again" and can't proceed to the next stage until you get an "OK" or better. After getting a "Superb" rating, the game will sometimes give the player an opportunity for a "Perfect" rating, but after three failed attempts, the opportunity goes away until next time. Getting perfect is just a regular "Superb" except during these opportunities.
* The ''VideoGame/SteelPanthers'' games don't give players letter grades, but they do calculate the exact measure of victory or defeat using a ratio of the victory points acquired by both players over the course of a scenario. This mostly matters in predefined campaigns, where the next scenario that you advance to can change depending on whether your victory was a Strategic one or a Marginal one.
* ''VideoGame/AlienHallway'' rates your performance on each level from 1-5 stars, with higher ranks earning more gold to buy [[RPGElements upgrades]]. Getting five stars on ''[[OneHundredPercentCompletion every]]'' level rewards you with a [[CosmeticAward Steam achievement]].
* Most of the earlier games in the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' series had a variation of this after the credits, giving between one and ten stars depending on your performance through the game. The ranking you got sometimes also determined the power of the game's secret weapons in a subsequent playthrough.
* ''VideoGame/StarRaiders'', at the end of each mission, assigns the player a ranking which is determined by a function of skill level, energy used, time taken, and number of enemy ships and starbases destroyed (with a greater penalty for bases destroyed by Zylon). Successful players can achieve ranks ranging from Rookie to Star Commander; failed players are Galactic Cook or Garbage Scow Captain.
* Almost every single game by Creator/PlatinumGames does this. Some examples are ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', ''VideoGame/AnarchyReigns'', ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' and ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101''. The grades usually depend on the game, such as letter grades from S to D (Revengeance), bronze or platinum medals (Anarchy Reigns) or awards that span from [[RankInflation Pure Platinum]] to [[FMinusMinus Stone]] (Bayonetta and the Wonderful 101, with the Stone award becoming a Consolation Prize in the latter's case).



* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' had an unusual system in which you were graded solely on how quickly you captured the enemy base (usually the main objective) resulting in a good strategy for an 'A' ranking being to deploy Alicia the Scout by herself, and just run her through the enemy ignoring firing and gunplay for captures.
* In ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', the player's grade is one bonus to their pin points, multiplying it by a factor from 0.80x (for "D" -- that's a 20% ''decrease'') to 1.50x (for "*").

[[folder:ShootEmUp]]
* ''CastleShikigami III'' gives you a letter grade between levels, from F (worst) all the way up to SS (best).
* ''VideoGame/{{Ikaruga}}'' grades the level too.
* ''VideoGame/SkyGunner'' gives various score bonuses and penalties at the end of each stage, but reserves the final grade until the end of the game.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:SimulationGame]]
* The ''AceCombat'' games do this, grading your performance by the time you spent on a mission and the score you've achieved. Higher grades increase the reward for the mission.
* ''VideoGame/StarRaiders'', at the end of each mission, assigns the player a ranking which is determined by a function of skill level, energy used, time taken, and number of enemy ships and starbases destroyed (with a greater penalty for bases destroyed by Zylon). Successful players can achieve ranks ranging from Rookie to Star Commander; failed players are Galactic Cook or Garbage Scow Captain.
* ''VideoGame/TraumaCenter''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:StealthBasedGame]]
* The ''VideoGame/{{Commandos}}'' games rate how well did you the mission with letters.
*The ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'' games give you a rank based on the number of non-targets killed and alarms raised during a mission. Different ranks carry different cash bonuses, with the elusive "Silent Assassin" rating netting the most.
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' ranks your performance after each mission, with [[SpeedRun completing the level quickly]], [[PacifistRun not killing enemies]] and not raising any alarms increasing your grade. The ranks go from C [[RankInflation up to S]].

to:

* ''VideoGame/{{Elsword}}'' gives you one each time you complete a dungeon or finish enough matches for a [=PvP=] ranking. They go as low as F if you just give up or as higher as SSS if you're a [=PvP=] master.



* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' rank player's battle perfomance at the end of each battle with numbers. Grades sum up and can later be exchanged for in-game items and features or saved till the end of the game for Grade Shop, which, among other things, ''sells grade bonuses'' for [[NewGamePlus New Game+]]. Combined with bonuses on setting higher game difficulty they can really take grades on the further playthroughs [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]]. But not unless you perform bad enough to actually get a NEGATIVE number. ...Which in that case ALSO gets multiplied by all your bonus indices.

to:

* ''VideoGame/CROSSxBEATS'' has ''two'' separate grading systems, a letter grade and a Clear Rate percentage, and oddly enough the two are correlated but neither is a function of the other nor a function of the score. On a song with at least 90 notes, if you get a single Fail exactly in the middle and all Flawless or Super on the rest, you'll get a Clear Rate of 89% and a grade of S+. If you get a Cool on every single note, you'll get 10% of the max score, a Clear Rate of 60%, and an S++ grade.
