Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed with Quidditch in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series. The Golden Snitch is worth so many points that 99% of the time, the team that catches it wins the match, making the other players a bit irrelevant except for the purpose of racking up the highest possible score. However, there are phenomenally rare occasions where a team is so badly outmatched that even the massive amount of points from a caught Golden Snitch is not enough to secure a victory, in which case catching the Snitch becomes an Instant '''Loss''' Condition for the weaker team (the match ends, and the opposing team proceeds to win because they scored more points in goals than the Snitch is worth).

* In ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', you win if you're the last tribute alive (and if you are you're likely to stay alive, since victors are given immediate medical treatment). Haymitch managed to win his game despite basically being disemboweled when he was able to trick his opponent into throwing an axe at the force field surrounding the arena, which bounces back anything that hits it. She gets an axe to the head, giving Haymitch the victory.

* ''Pinball/HighRollerCasino'' allows the player to collect "Cheats" by fulfilling certain conditions. If you start a casino game, you have at least 1 Cheat, and you would normally lose the game, one Cheat will be deducted from your total to turn it into a win.

* Milling is inverted in the''TabletopGame/EpicCardGame'' - if the player runs out of cards to draw, they win the game. To prevent this from becoming too easy, the game can return cards to the bottom of the deck.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has this in ''Wrath of the Lich King''. In the Halls of Stones instance, there is a gauntlet called the Tribunal of Ages, where you have to protect Brann Bronzebeard from getting roflstomped by mecha-dwarves as he's tinkering away at the security system. You have to live for 5-7 minutes of constant mobs, that spawn faster and faster and even avoid huge purple bombs of pain and a laser beam. When all of these at once, you can be seconds from achieving victory, have all of your party members die, and yet you still win if Brann manages to subdue the security system and use them to destroy the mecha-dwarves.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has this in ''Wrath as a standard for most boss encounters. It doesn't matter how many adds he has active, how much of the Lich King''. room is on fire, or how many of you have been turned in his mindless, twisted slaves - so long as the boss dies, you win.

** Hellfire Assault involves stealing ammo to fire cannons at a fortified gate. So long as you can get enough ammo into the cannons to fire, it doesn't matter if only one person is alive being chased by dozens of enemies - you win.

Added DiffLines:

'''Civilization VI''' took steps to at least tone this down, making it easier to see the end coming in time to do something about it. Domination was carefully reworded to require the one civ to control every opponent's capital simultaneously. The Space Race now involves three separate phases, and every player is notified when a phase is completed (after all, a space launch is difficult to miss). Culture and Religion victories are the result of a gradual spread, with ways to undermine the leaders or defend yourself as long as you're paying attention. That said, the finish line is ultimately crossed with a single action in every case.\\\

* ''AquarionLogos'', virtually every M.J.K.B. and mecha has the power to destroy an entire concept and therefore part of reality with it if not dealt with fast enough, battles are usually won out of sheer willpower (mostly from Akira).
* ''Franchise/CodeGeass'', during the FinalBattle of the second season. [[spoiler:Lelouch, his army obliterated and Suzaku defeated by Kallen, seizes control of Damocles.]] This is '''[[JustifiedTrope Justified]]''', [[spoiler:because with Damocles under his control, it's either surrender to Lelouch, or Lelouch '''nukes the entire world''' with impunity.]]

* Many battles in ''FinalFantasyTactics'' just require defeating one specific enemy. If you can do that, even if you're down to your last man and the next enemy barrage will definitely kill him, you automatically win.
