* At the end of the 1980 ''Film/FlashGordon'' movie, Ming the Merciless has died, the day has been saved, and all is well. The words 'The End' appear, but a sinister laugh is heard as a familiar hand picks up the ring, and a question mark appears after the words...

* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' includes a joke at the end of every episode. One version was a clip from something, paired with that [[MemeticMutation internet meme]] about [[Film/{{Superman}} Lex Luthor telling Lois Lane to "say the line"... that little exchange that ends in "WRONG!"]] To clarify -- the video is taken from the series, while the audio is a random sound bite from somewhere else -- examples are Gorillaz's 'Feel Good Inc.', Dan Green's "I'm going to do my laundry!" comment, the above Lex/Lois exchange, and a self TakeThat on LittleKuriboh's marriage proposal over Website/YouTube. Sometimes the video isn't from the series -- one episode involved the Drama Hog, which was played again at the end with the caption "Rejected ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'' Monster".

* A few YouTubePoop videos show things at the end, such as subliminal messages/images or a "CUT-OFF PREVENTION" blurb (Youtube is known for frequently cutting off half a second of video, maybe more depending on the length). Steg often shows a clip at the end of his videos showing Big Bird saying, "Coming soon on Sesame Street!" and then cutting to something completely unrelated, while Big Bird finishes off with "Toodle-oo!"

* After one passed through the three different scenarios of ''EternalDarkness: Sanity's Requiem'', one was treated to the whole truth about the ultimate fate of the three {{Big Bad}}s of the game, which just happened to be {{Eldritch Abomination}}s named Xel'lotath, Ulyaoth, and Chattur'gha. As it turns out, each had imprisoned the oldest and most powerful of the four, Mantorok, who in revenge had set in motion three different timelines, in which one of the three got killed and another got locked forever. The kicker? Just to screw with them, he bound the three timelines together, so the three of them remained dead. That didn't help him out of being impaled in huge pillars under his temple in Cambodia, though...
* In the original ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' game (1991), Robotnik would be shown juggling the Chaos Emeralds if you didn't collect them all. If you ''had'' collected them all, he'd be shown foiled, jumping up and down in a fit of rage. This style of stinger has appeared several times in the series since.

** At the end of ''HighSchoolMusical'', Zeke is surprised in the gym by Sharpay freaking out over the cookies he made for her earlier, which she finally ate and loved.
** ''[[HighSchoolMusical Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure]]'' had one where Ryan Evans, absent for the whole movie despite it being set where he goes to school, turns up to explain that he was on tour with a show, congratulate Sharpay on becoming a star, and get stuck in her foldout bed. For some reason this didn't make it onto the DVD.

* The ''AustinPowers'' trilogy of films have all done this, to an extreme in "The Spy Who Shagged Me". Post-credit scenes show Scott Evil on ''Series/TheJerrySpringerShow'' learning who his real mother is, Austin catching another time-displaced version of himself sleeping with Felicity Shagwell, and Wafa Mustafa (played by Will Ferrell) [[OverlyLongGag still yelling for help]] at the bottom of a cliff.

** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' had, depending on your screening, either a now-amnesiac Logan in a bar, "drinking to remember" or the [[LosingYourHead living disembodied head]] of {{Deadpool}}, having gained his mouth back and his MediumAwareness as well. There was also [[spoiler:General Stryker getting arrested]], but everyone got that one.
