* 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.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica'' was infamous for its DistantFinale that attracted as much anger as ''Series/ThePrisoner''.

* ''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.

* The ending of ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' could be called an inversion of the trope. The ending takes place [[spoiler:in what the characters see as a strange alternate realty, but it's ''our'' reality, the real world during World War II. It's the rest of the series that takes place in the world full of magic and monsters.]]

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Not one, but ''two'' {{Gainax Ending}}s. ''The End of Evangelion'' contains several ''minutes'' of [[{{Blipvert}} images zipping by so fast they could be seizure-inducing]], many of them vaguely disturbing (the series had already had much shorter sequences like this). The series ended with a lot of [[ContemplateOurNavels navel-contemplation]], some of it trippy; the film basically had trippy graphics for most of the latter half.

Fans are ''still'' divided over whether they're two different endings to the series, or just one ending told in two different ways.

* The finale of ''StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', "All Good Things...", has a modest version of this, featuring Q, and involving Picard being thrown back and forth between timelines from the past, present, and future. Of course, given that it's ''StarTrek'' we're talking about, trippiness is a relative concept, but it's particularly notable for the scope and complexity of its trippiness.
