* ''Film/TheMightyDucks''. Happens several times. In the Ducks' final regular season game, Coach Bombay pulls Goldberg to give the Ducks six attackers and a chance to win the game in regulation, as a tie would not have been enough to qualify for the playoffs. [[ForegoneConclusion It works]].
** Possibly averted, as Bombay's exclamation that "Ties aren't gonna help us. We need the win!" make it appear that such a game would end tied with no overtime played.

* ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'''s BaseballEpisode ends on the last inning in the anime. However, the game in the original VisualNovel from which said BaseballEpisode is based on actually ends on the extra inning.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'', "Power Play": Roller hockey match. Score, 3-4, Rockets down, with NHL pros game on the line. 12 seconds left. Dialog:
-->'''Raymundo''': They can do it. Tito. Tie it up and win in overtime. Overtime is not extra paddling. It's...\
'''Tito''': I know what overtime is, bruddah.
** Otto takes the puck from Sam with 3 seconds to go and shoots from afar, but the goal is waived. Big DownerEnding, folks.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!'', "Benchwarmer": With his team down by two with nine seconds remaining, instead of simply sinking the two free throws he's given and playing overtime, Arnold decides to deliberately miss the second freethrow to score a basket to win.
** That actually gets used in real life (although in practice only when down by 3 or more). The only problem is that he has to clank it in such a way that a teammate can get his hands on the ball first. Not an easy task under the best of circumstances, and this isn't the kind of skill that most players work on, so this definitely counts as a desperation move.

win. This is a real life (although in practice only when down by 3 or more). The only problem is that he has tactic, but so unreliable (you have to clank it in such a way that a teammate can get his hands on bounce off the ball first. Not an easy task under the best rim to one of circumstances, and this your teammates, which isn't the kind of a skill normally practiced) that most players work on, so this definitely counts as a desperation move. smart player would only do it if they need all three points just to ''get'' to overtime.

* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'': The Deimon Devilbats score a last-second touchdown to trail the Shinryuuji Naga by 1 point with no time remaining, not having gone for the XP attempt yet. Realizing that Sena is at the limit of his stamina and won't be able to last through overtime, Hiruma makes the call to go for 2 on a fake field goal attempt, giving Deimon a one-point victory.
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since [[YouCanBarelyStand most (if not all) of the players are exhausted,]] [[FragileSpeedster Sena]] himself nearly [[GameBreakingInjury damaging his knee.]] Playing with only 11 regular members and 4 borrowed sports club players is not advisable, but hey, if that's all you can get...
** Later averted in the final game. [[spoiler: Team America and Team Japan tie the game, and no overtime is given because the people hosting the tournament thought America would wreck the tournament like always. Unhappy with a tie (As Bud Walker puts it, it's like kissing your sister.) the teams continue playing despite being told not to. It's assumed that Team America won, but Team Japan doesn't mind.]]
* ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'''s BaseballEpisode ends on the last inning in the anime. However, the game in the original VisualNovel from which said BaseballEpisode is based on actually ends on the extra inning. This is of course justified by the fact that Visual Novels aren't restricted by a 25 minutes time limit.

*** [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "Can Manchester United score? They ALWAYS score..."]]. It has been noticed many times that referees at Old Trafford tend to suffer from a different sense of the passage of time, and add unfeasible amounts of extra time seemingly unjustified by actual stoppages in play. This phenomenon has been referred to as "Fergie Time", for some reason.

* The 1983 NCAA men's tournament final between underdog North Carolina State (coached by the late Jim Valvano) and "Phi Slama Jama" from the University of Houston (which had two future NBA All-Stars in Hakeem Olajuwan and Clyde Drexler) came down to the last possession tied at 52. NC State player Dereck Whittenburg launched a long shot with 3 seconds to go, but his attempt fell far short of the rim... right into the hands of teammate Lorenzo Charles, who rose up to dunk it just as time expired.

They pulled this off in 5 other games on their march to the championship, out of 9 total, 8 of which they were losing in the final minute (3 games were won in overtime, and one was never in doubt)
