* ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie's'' GameOver is an ending cutscene in which you have to watch the WickedWitch[=/=]VainSorceress Gruntilda succeed in stealing the beauty of Banjo's younger sister Tooty and turn her into something like FrankensteinsMonster. She even demands a talk with Banjo immediately for this travesty. However, for some, this was offset by [[FetishFuel Grunty's newfound hotness]] and the fact that Tooty was TheScrappy. For others, this scene was scary. The problem with this is that the scene plays every time you save and quit, too. It's almost as if the game is [[YouBastard slapping you across the face]] for not playing it [[BladderOfSteel start to finish in one go]]. However, if you die before even reaching Grunty's lair or after passing her game show, then they will simply show the words "Game Over" over the scene where you lost your last life.

Added DiffLines:

* Four out of the six endings of ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' are this. One is an ambiguous close [[spoiler:with a ToBeContinued]], and [[spoiler:the continuation of the aforementioned]] is the [[EarnYourHappyEnding best ending]], but the others range from [[spoiler:[[EverybodysDeadDave everyone dying]]]], to [[spoiler:GenkiGirl [[SanitySlippage losing it]] and [[KillEmAll murdering everyone]]]], [[spoiler:thus becoming trapped forever]] and to [[spoiler:Akane becoming RetGone]]. The Submarine Ending is especially this, since before the credits, [[spoiler:[[EverybodysDeadDave it displays the full body count]]]].

* In ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII: Trial By Fire'', a standard death (by attack or low stats) will usually just give you a punny death message and let you restore and get back to the game. However, if you fail the task of capturing the Elementals or die anytime after [[spoiler:Ad Avis steals the evil genie Iblis' lamp]], you are treated to a long cut scene of the city being destroyed or [[spoiler:an ''even longer'' cut scene of Iblis escaping the lamp and wreaking havoc upon the world]]. The first time, it's creepy, but after the third or fourth time, it gets annoying. And it's a {{Sierra}} game -- you die ''all the freaking time''.

* [[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...]]

Added DiffLines:

* Most game over sequences in ''VisualNovel/MyHaremHeavenIsYandereHell'' are abrupt, but [[spoiler:disagreeing with Kudou]] on Sayuri's route will result in him murdering [[TheHero Yuuya]] and the game's narration switching to third-person. In the subsequent scene, [[spoiler:Kudou]] and Sayuri plan to kidnap someone else.

* In ''DemonsCrest'', you can go off the rails and fight the final boss early. See [[NiceJobBreakingItHero/VideoGames Nice Job Breaking It, Hero]] for the startling BadEnd this triggers.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}'' Losing all bros in [[FinalDeathMode Ironbro mode]] results in a brief cutscene depicting a rose falling on a bloodstained coffin wrapped in the American flag, heavily implied to contain the remains of the last character to die. Ouch.

* ''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!
