[[spoiler:In it, Big Boss turns out to '''still''' be alive, and explains the last hanging threads of the series. It makes the Bittersweet Ending a bit happier, but not really.]]

* Taking the "Easy Path" to Venom in ''VideoGame/StarFox64,'' and beating it as such, would result in Andross's face fading in after the credits, complete with his ominous laugh... confirming the player's suspicion that the robot he just fought was ''not'' the real Andross after all. Alternately, taking the "Hard Path" to Venom, finding the path to the "Real Andross" [[spoiler:and defeating Andross's true [[BrainInAJar Giant Space Brain]] form, you are joined by Fox's presumed-to-be-dead father during the [[DeathCourse final escape]] from the base]].
** There are also two smaller ones: apparently Team Star Fox gets paid per [[NeverSayDie "hit"]], and so they will send General Pepper an invoice which appears in the post-credit scene. General Pepper delivers two possible lines: "This is one steep bill, but it's worth it," or [[spoiler:if you get over 1000 hits, a simple, incredulous [[BigWhat "What!?!"]]]]

Hanekoma tells Joshua something to the effect of "it's their own lives -- they can live as they want." Josh is so pissed off by this point that he simply flies off.

** In VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus, [[spoiler: a resurrected Mono finds Wander again, now reincarnated as a baby with horns, linking the game with ICO. Although both are forever trapped within the seemingly lifeless and desolate Forbidden Lands, they walk to the top of the shrine to find a secret garden filled with animals.]]
** In VideoGame/TheLastGuardian, [[spoiler: the game reveals that the boy, who throughout the game was narrating the story as an adult, was speaking to a group of kids that after many decades stumbled upon the boy's magic mirror buried the ground, which was lost years ago when Trico brought the boy back to the village. At night, our protagonist and the group of kids activate the mirror using a torch, sending a single that travels hundreds of miles back to The Nest, where Trico (now with [[BabiesEverAfter a child]]) suddenly wakes up - suggesting that the two will meet again. Pressing the circle button during this sequence will light up Trico's horns, much like they would when holding the mirror throughout the game.]]
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' on the original GameBoy, if you managed to complete the game without dying once, after the end credits you see Marin [[spoiler:incarnated as a seagull. Looks like she got her wish, after all.]]
