The most common type is a pensive, retrospective or sad AnimeThemeSong, but it can be an instrumental tune as well. Since except in [[SoundtrackDissonance some cases]] the soundtrack usually supports the temper of the ending, this is often a sign of a [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet]] or DownerEnding, except in anime, where the opening theme is usually more exciting in order to build excitement for the coming show while the closing theme is more somber to provide a resting period or moment of reflection between shows.

Might be accompanied by a CreditsMontage.

May also appear for a show's GrandFinale (with or without special FinaleCredits). You only may expect this to be accompanied by a CreditsMontage.

* Archaeology show ''Series/TimeTeam'' has a slower ending theme without its usually drumbeats that it uses on "special" shows where they may be investigating things like WW2 archaeology or other sites that had a significant death count.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': "Mother Simpson" ends with a sad orchestral piece rather than the usual Simpsons credits theme as Homer sitting alone on the boot of his car for hours, well into the night. At that time, Fox started ending shows with split-screen credits with ads for Fox shows playing over it. The Simpsons staff had to fight tooth-and-nail to have the full studio credits play over that beautiful shot and they got it.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b96rrbo-_Ik "Answers"]], which plays at the end of the ''A Realm Reborn'' 2.X series. Very notable since not only plays after a very emotional roller coaster and big plot twists, it's also the same song that played after the game's servers in 1.0 were shut down and is also the same song that plays when you fight [[BonusBoss Bahamut Prime]]. Likewise, the end of the ''Heavensward'' 3.x series has [[https://youtu.be/FtuwltmTp9I "Dragonsong"]], which also played at the opening trailer for the expansion pack.
