However, having a game do this creates a perverse incentive for the player to die in every way possible at least once to see the ending message.

* In the XBox game ''TheBardsTale'', the narrator (voiced by ''Tony Jay'') took delight in the untimely passing of the protagonist character, often making snide remarks on the ineptitude of the Bard or how he 'loves a happy ending.'

* You can die in ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory I'' by ''sticking your lockpick a bit too far up your nose'', which only occurs if you try to "pick nose" with a very low lockpicking skill. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Genius. Twisted genius.]] Buy that writer twelve thousand beers. (Beer is fine, just don't drink the [[GargleBlaster Dragon's Breath]], or you will also die by bursting into flames.)

* Both ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' and ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' have a cheerful hint corner that you can view after meeting a bad end. "Teach Me Ciel-Sensei" in Tsukihime, with Ciel and Neko-Arc giving advice, and in VisualNovel/FateStayNight the "Tiger Dojo" with Tiga and Illya giving the advice. They're actually helpful in telling you how you screwed up, but the comedic nature of them can create MoodWhiplash (which the Tiger Dojo, oddly, actually ''warns'' about).

Of course, if you pick an obviously wrong choice, you're more likely to get mocked than receive a hint.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' was an early forerunner in this field. There were many, many ways that the hapless main character could [[BlackComedy receive a sarcastic and often ironic death message.]]

** During the quest "Fate of the Gods", if you die [[spoiler: in Freneskae]] and return [[spoiler: to the World Gate]] to try again, Sliske will mock your latest demise. He has seven different lines to do so, and finally gives up and declares that you die too much and it's boring.

He has snarky remarks for your first seven different lines to do so, and finally deaths, but from eight on gives up and declares just whines that you die too much and it's boring.[[CrossesTheLineTwice your constant dying is boring him]].

** Another classic occurs when you do not beat the game within its (quite generous) [[TimedMission time limit]], [[spoiler:where Larry [[{{Wangst}} considers his]] [[AManIsNotAVirgin continued virginity]] [[{{Wangst}} so depressing that he kills himself]].]]

* The Operative in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' usually offers one of these. He's not being insincere or mocking when he does this, since he's pretty big on the "honorable death" thing.

* In ''IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis'', Game Over screens will usually be accompanied by a text explaining Dr. Jones' death and/or what happened after. A paraphrased example: "The Nazi forces conquered the world due to Indy's inability to defeat a 70 year-old sea captain."
