* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia's'' New Game Plus allows players to spend excess "grade" (earned during combat) for various features, like keeping the previous game's RelationshipValues, recipe ratings, techniques, etc., or raising/lowering grade and experience growth rates. On the second and further playthroughs of ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', each character gets a second [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]], along with the bonuses mentioned above in Symphonia's entry. A couple sidequests and dungeon also open up, and you have to play through at least twice to get one hundred percent completion (as there is one sidequest where you choose what reward you get, and two aren't found anywhere else). The New Game Plus Grade shop has become a staple of the ''Franchise/TalesSeries''. New Game Plus only dungeons have become pretty common in the series as well.

* ''VideoGame/SuikodenIV'' and ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'' also have included the option of a New Game Plus, though SV's is more of a bonus. While ''SuikodenIV'' only lets you keep money and items in your inventory at the end of the game, ''SuikodenV'' let's you keep not only those, but Party SP (though oddly enough, not the personal SP of your characters, which is reset to 0), items in your storage, epic skills you've acquired, formations, the various skill manuals (which allow your party's combat and magic trainers to raise your skills to higher levels) and even allows you to run faster than normal when holding the Triangle or R2 buttons. The only downside is that neither game transfers over the equipment or runes your characters had currently equipped (everyone has their normal default equipment instead), which is quite obviously the best stuff you'd have. Also, weapons are all back at level 1.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' starts you with a digital camera on the New Game Plus; similar to the camera Snake is given in the Tanker chapter. However, the digital camera allows you to save the images to your memory card instead. It also features, in addition to the stealth camo and bandana from the last game, a series of wigs that Raiden can wear to gain the same effects as the above, plus enhancing their SuperNotDrowningSkills or grip while hanging, aquired by holding up a certain number of guards and getting their dog tags. And, finally, in the ''Substance'' re-release, beating the game once, then beating it new game plus once gives both player characters sunglasses.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' gives you the Patriot rifle, which has an infinite ammo supply [[HandWave because the feeding mechanism is shaped like the infinity symbol]], after you clear your first playthrough. It also features alternate conditions for getting some of the unlockables, such as aquiring one of every edible item, catching and keeping the Tsuchinoko, or shooting every toy frog in the game; extremely helpful as the only other way to unlock these are beating the game with no alerts, no deaths, no kills, under five hours, etc. One of the new unlockable items is the extremely gamebreaking EZ Gun, a tranquilizer pistol with a laser sight, a supressor that never runs out, and somehow bumps the player's camo index all the way up to 80% whenever it's equipped. You can also start a new game with Ocelot's [[RevolversAreJustBetter Single Action Army]], assuming you [[spoiler:picked the right gun in the duel at the very end.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Xenoblade's]]'' allows you to carry over your party's level, all of their Artes will remain at the same level as when you cleared the game, your party's affinity level also remains intact, and you get to keep all of your skill trees at their current levels. You're also given [[spoiler: [[InfinityPlusOneSword The True Monado]]]], which is the single most powerful weapon in the game. However, the game warns you that it's a one time only item. Meaning, if you clear the game again without having it equipped, or unless you opt to carry it over to your next game, '''''[[PermanentlyMissableContent it's gone for good.]]''''' Also, a New Game+ file allows you to carry over a set number of equipment and earn additional affinity coins, but all heart-to-hearts, sidequests (including the rebuilding of Colony 6), and the in-game achievements will have to be redone.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' had a new game plus that is considered a {{Gamebreaker}} by fans of the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series (which is normally considered much more difficult than other {{RPG}}s) by the virtue that the New game starts with the main character at the level he was in the final save, all his weapons, money, and a record of all the Personas that have been created.
** The UpdatedRerelease, ''Persona 3: FES'', allows the player to import the main characters status (his non-combat skills, that is), any items gained from maxing out a social link, and a record of all personas registered in the compendium. Needless to say, this made maxing out social links the second time ''much'' easier, as well as saving a ''lot'' of time building up personal skills. ''Persona 3 Portable'''s New Game Plus also includes [[spoiler:the option to choose which person you spend your dying moments with at the end, provided you maxed their Social Link and for the Female Protagonist, made it romantic.]]

* In ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2'', if the player aquired any of the alternate clothes for the characters (which they wear in cutscenes), a new game can be started with any of the aquired clothes, so long as a game save that has them is present on the memory card. You can also save pictures into an album (found in Max's house from Chapter 2 onwards), which can be accessed in any save game where the album is in the inventory. If you save certain ideas and scoops into the album, you can invent and build things that you wouldn't have been able to until later chapters, like the Ridepod's best equipment, or some particularly powerful weapons for Max and Monica.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaCircleOfTheMoon'' has multiple New Game+ modes: Fighter (gives you increased damage with weapons but takes away spellcasting), Magician (reduces physical stats but gives access to all the spells at the beginning of the game), Shooter (increases subweapon damage and drop rate), and Thief (maxes out Luck).

* In ''VideoGame/WanganMidnight Maximum Tune'', after the player has completed Story Mode, fully tuning their car, they can go through Story Mode again with their fully-tuned vehicle, with perks varying from game to game:
** In ''Maximum Tune 2'', from the second loop onwards each stage has unique titles for winning and for losing the stage. Additionally, the player can earn "engine overhauls" that slightly improve performance by clearing loops
** In ''Maximum Tune 3'', if the player loses their Story Mode "undefeated" status, they can try again on the next loop. Clearing a loop undefeated is required to unlock the ''Wangan Midnight R'' soundtrack; in ''Maximum Tune [=3DX=]'' and ''Maximum Tune [=3DX=]+'', the player can also win a special tachometer in this manner.
** From ''Maximum Tune 4'' onwards, the player earns a new racing tachometer each time they clear a loop of Story Mode undefeated on the same car, with four different colors of racing meters available, the entire collection requiring clearing Story Mode undefeated ''four times''. Losing at any point pushes all unlocks back by one loop. Soundtracks are also unlocked by clearing loops (1 loop for ''Maximum Tune 3'' / ''3DX'' / ''3DX+'', 2 for the 10 Outrun Mode soundtrack, 3 for ''Maximum Tune 1'' / ''2'', 4 for ''Wangan Midnight R''), but they do not require undefeated status.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', beating the game once is required to unlock the "Far Side of the Moon" routes. To clarify, before you can access Akiha, Hisui, and Kohaku's routes, which focus on the Tohno family history ("Far Side"), you first have to work your way through the {{Exposition}} of {{Nasuverse}}-style [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampirism]] in the Arcueid and Ciel's storylines ("Near Side of the Moon").
* In another {{Nasuverse}} VN, ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', you have to finish the Fate route to unlock the Unlimited Blade Works route, and you have to complete UBW to unlock the Heaven's Feel route. Also, to unlock the final Tiger Dojo segment, you must discover all the MultipleEndings (including all the Bad ones where you die) from all routes. Also, getting all the final Tiger Dojo segments, in addition to all the endings, gets you (at least in the UpdatedRerelease) a hidden GoldenEnding [[spoiler: where Shirou and Saber finally reunite in Avalon.]]
