* ''Missile Defence 3D'', a light gun game for the Sega Master System, featured two nations (East and West) launching nuclear missiles at one another, with the player's job being to shoot them all down before they reach their target. The player has three stages to shoot down the missiles and in between each stage, the player's AI assistant will send you a summary of how many missiles have been shot down over each area and how many remain. If one reaches the target city, you are treated to a blurry, red-flashing explosion as the nuclear warhead detonates, followed by a chilling final message from the AI:

* ''AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes'' on NES more or less rubs failure in your face. When the player runs out of lives, the screen goes black and instead of a "Continue?" option with Yes or No choices, the tomato in the title card's eyes appear staring at the player, but then a bunch of tomatoes are thrown at the screen, which spell out "Try again tomato face!" (get the feeling the game is laughing at you?). There is no way to gain extra lives or continues, so if you fail a second time? "Try again tomato face!" Fail a third time? Dr. Gangrene launches the Doomsday Tomato into the sky which then splatters ketchup all over the town. Any doubts about the game laughing at your failure are put to rest as the words "HA HA HA HA HA HA HA" rise up from the bottom of the screen!

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}''[='=]s Junkenstein's Revenge mode, if the team fails, either through everyone being killed with no one left on the battlefield instead of in respawn, or allowing the castle door's LifeMeter to be depleted, a cutscene shows a Zomnic destroying the door completely before a whole swath of them march their way inside, while Reinhardt narrates the results:

Added DiffLines:

* [[AmnesiaOtome Amnesia]] has several Bad Endings for each character, two or three for most and seven for Ukyo. Some of them are only a break-up with the guy, others can involve [[spoiler: Heroine getting chained up by the local {{Yandere}}, burning to death, getting stabbed, being put in a coma by a guy's fan club...]]
* MysticMessenger has five Bad Endings per character, three for making the wrong choices and two for not playing, two for not playing before entering a character's route, and one for making the wrong choice in the prologue. Those endings can be somewhat harmless, [[spoiler: like marrying Zen in Jaehee's route, which causes Jaehee to be even more overworked than before, or Zen's first Bad Ending, which makes their relationship become something of a MasochismTango]], many involve [[spoiler: Unknown kidnapping you with no mention what happens to you after]], but others involve [[spoiler: Yoosung getting fully {{Yandere}}, Jumin seeing you as a possession rather than a person, Unknown sending pictures of you being tortured to Seven and deciding to use you as a sex slave...]] And then there's the Casual Common Route Bad Ending, [[spoiler: [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou in which Yoosung becomes aware that they're only programmed machines]], and ends up getting kidnapped by Unknown.]]

* In ''VideoGame/ManiacMansion'', there are several actions that can lead to a meltdown. You see the mansion explode, followed by a message that the nuclear explosion has destroyed everything in a 5 mile radius. (It's never made clear how far the mansion is from the town.)

Another variation happens if you pull and EpicFail and get all three kids killed. It says that Sandy is doomed to zombiehood and that Dr. Fred, still under the Meteor's influence, takes over the world and a small part of the galaxy.
