* Film/Interstellar is already the modern equivalent of ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'', so it wouldn't be complete without the trip [[spoiler:inside a black hole where aliens have set up infinite rooms showing Cooper's daughter's room throughout multiple time periods, and then the trip backwards and forwards through time and space as Cooper goes home.]]

* This is basically a requirement for ''ShadowHearts''. In the first one, set before WorldWarI, the heroes head into ''space'' for the final battle.

* The final battle of ''OutlawStar'' borders on an action-packed MindScrew, what with BigBad Hazanko and protagonist Gene Starwind apparently merging with their ships to fight each other both physically and in CyberSpace. Of course, the final few episodes are made up of the characters basically running around inside what amounts to God, so all this isn't coming completely out of left field.

* ''LegendOfTheSeeker'', the television adaptation of ''SwordOfTruth'', pulled a time travel stunt in the first season finally, then had a rather anticlimactic... grappling sequence for the previously DismantledMacGuffin between Richard and Darken Rahl.

** Somewhat justified in that the movie takes a manga that ran for 8 years and tries to cram it all into a 2 hour long movie. Read the manga if you want the whole story.
*** In fact, the manga's run was only halfway when the movie was made.

* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' pulls out all the special-effects stops and headache-inducing magical locations for its {{Final Battle}}s, despite the battle fields (in the first two seasons, at least) normally being pretty low-key.

* ''ShadowSkill'' ends with a bizarre near-death dream sequence involving giraffes and lions, with lots of Fauxlosophic dialogue. It's pretty clear what is going on, but the way they choose to illustrate it is decidedly trippy.
* The finale of ''RahXephon'' had several characters running around inside Yolteotl (something approximately like Nirvana) with lots of trippy symbolism whilst [[spoiler: Quon and Ayato]] tried to figure out how they wanted to retune the world.

* The GrandFinale of the first season of ''DarkerThanBlack'' was very clearly inspired by Evangelion. However, unlike Eva, they had the decency to give at least a little explanation. It's possible to piece together all the groups' motivations, even if the [[EldritchLocation Gate-induced]] MindScrew is totally incomprehensible.
