* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has the understanding that saving and quitting is your character dismissing their current party, heading back to NLA, and taking leave of their BLADE duties for a while, and the loading and squad selection sequence when you return is punching on, regathering your group, and picking up where you left off. This [[TakeYourTime falls apart]] during Story and Affinity Missions, but it's a nice effort.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', the save points don't seem to be justified at first, but when the school's under attack, you run across a student crouching next to one. She stands up and tells you, "Save point up and running, sir!".

* In ''VideoGame/{{Kuon}}'', Utsuki, Sakuya and Abe no Seimei can save the game within the confines of hallowed ground - which are always found by small streams of water - by setting afloat paper Vessels, as an ''onmyodo'' form of blessing. On a disturbing note, the player later finds rivers of blood running underground... and all the paper Vessels used to save the game are found drowned in it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' justifies its save points as MentalTimeTravel on the part of the protagonist. What makes it ''really'' interesting is that some characters have RippleEffectProofMemory, and will react to things you've undone. At the end of the neutral path, [[spoiler:Flowey ''steals this power from you'' -- but the save points remain justified, as now it's ''him'' reloading the game, because he wants to kill you again]].

* Most ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games that have save points don't attempt to justify them, but in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', when you save at a Bird Statue you're "offering your prayers to the Goddess."

* ''VideoGame/EnemyZero'': Saving and loading are justified as Laura recording and playing back an audio log. The device consumes battery life with each use, leading to SaveGameLimits.

more proper link
Doesn't count when a video game explains to you straight, and usually outside of the story in a tutorial, that [[BreakingTheFourthWall you need to save your game or you'll lose all progress]].

grammar, links
* The ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series generally doesn't even attempt to explain away its save points, but ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime Metroid Prime 3: Corruption]]'' did, by several times having various [=NPCs=] tell you to "perform suit maintenance and data backup" before heading off on important objectives. Also in ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', the announcer refers to using a HealingCheckpoint as a "Data recording and shield restoration sequence".

** In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Symphony Of The Night]]'', it's a coffin because Alucard is [[{{Dhampyr}} half-vampire]]. *** In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Aria Of Sorrow]]'', you can clearly see Alucard's save coffin collapsed behind Soma's save Virgin Mary statue. It has a reason for being there, possibly because [[spoiler:Genya Arikado is Alucard and is also traversing the castle]] or because [[spoiler:Soma is the reincarnation of Dracula but hasn't given in, giving symbolism to the Virgin Mary being in place of the collapsed vampire coffin.]] *** Before the coffin pops up, a floating, decorated, 3D polyhedron appears. In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDissonance Harmony Of Dissonance]]'', Juste uses the same thing without thecoffin, with no justification for why a Belmont is using a [[{{Dhampyr}} half-vampire]]'s save point. ** And in ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaCurseOfDarkness Curse Of Darkness]]'', it's a CoolChair because why not?
