If you save while fighting The End, Para-Medic will warn you that she has a bad feeling about this. [[spoiler:If you load the data a few days later, you'll be ambushed by The End and thrown in a cell...but if you wait a full week first, [[SkippableBoss The End will die of old age]].]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona4}}'': "There will be dramatic turns in the story from this point. It is strongly recommended that you save. Save your game now?"[[labelnote:Context]]This appears shortly before a point in the story where you can easily get locked into the Bad Ending if you make an incorrect dialogue choice. [[/labelnote]]

* In the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, this happens after every investigation or trial scene. It gets more notable when it happens in the middle of a trial, usually when there's a recess. More notable, still, when it happens in the middle of a trial and a recess HASN'T been called. Unnecessary because you can save at absolutely any point in time with very few exceptions, but it still lets you know something' going to come up.

Subtrope of SuspiciousVideogameGenerosity, in this case letting you know you ''should'' save before (and/or after) the rough patch. Indeed, for most games where saves are usually automatic or handled by checkpoint, the appearance of ''any'' save prompt qualifies for the GenreSavvy player.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' give you the option to save at the end of each chapter. Since there's usually a significant cutscene at the start and end of each chapter, this is just a good idea, especially on the (three-disc) 360 version, which has you swap discs after chapters 4 and 9 (notably, the disc swap happens after you save, just like the PS1 games).

* The PlayStation 1-era ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games did this at the end of each disc, which were almost always immediately following major plot events (though a very obvious reason for it is simply a failsafe in case something goes wrong during the disc swap.)
