A staple of the VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory films, it differs from a DistantFinale in that we get little flashes (such as photographs, still frames, little captions, narration/voiceover, or a {{Montage|s}} of individual clips) that tell us what happened to the characters, instead of a full scene with dialogue or character interaction. If it shows how each character meets his maker, a DeadlyDistantFinale. Can be used to create a FastForwardToReunion. If it happens while the credits are rolling, it might be CreativeClosingCredits. In video games, this may be done in form of a dynamic ModularEpilogue. HowWeGotHere is the exact opposite of this trope.

* The ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' movie ''Daffy Duck's Quackbusters'' has one of these, with short clips (with accompanying text) of what happened to the main characters after Daffy's ghost-hunting agency went bankrupt. Bugs Bunny was enjoying a life of luxury in Palm Springs; Porky Pig and Sylvester the Cat were lost at the Superstition Mountains, with Sylvester still being "a yellow dog of a scared cat"; Cubbish was still dead; and Daffy was back at where he started: selling stuff at the street. Unfortunately for him, the only dollar he ever made vanished. He ended the story yelling "CUBBISH!"



* The ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' episode "Fuzzy Dice" ends like this. And then they follow up on it in "Steak Me Amadeus". The show concludes with this in a non-parody manner, detailing the main characters lives over the next 25 years after the events of the GrandFinale.
