* The French indie RPG ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'' has two endings. [[spoiler:After you learn the true natures of [[OmnicidalManiac the Batter]] and his "[[KillEmAll sacred]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt mission]]", you are given a LastSecondEndingChoice: you can either stick with the Batter and see his mission through to the end, or you can betray him, side with the Judge, and kill him to protect what's left.]]

* Recent games in the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series have a feature called "support", in which characters that spend a lot of time together in battle can have conversations which increase each of the supported characters' stats when they're near each other in battle. Certain preset supports change the ending, with the supported characters getting married and having children, and supports for the main characters will get an extra scene in the ending.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem'' and its remake have two endings, one bad and one good. If the player manages to collect all five orbs (one of which is in twelve pieces), the binding shield will be completed, and [[spoiler:dispel the illusion that Gharnef and his followers use to disguise themselves as the clerics that they had kidnapped.]] This will unlock four more chapters where Marth and crew [[spoiler:travel to the heart of the Dragon's Alter, where [[FinalBoss Medeus]] has been revived.]] Failing to accomplish this will cause Marth to [[spoiler:fall for Gharnef's disguise and think the day is saved, allowing the Earth Dragons to awaken and cause the end of the world.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'' has three possible endings: the standard ending, the complete ending, and the best ending. The standard ending can be obtained by simply defeating Zephiel. If all the sacred weapons have been obtained and are still intact, two extra chapters are unlocked, leading to the complete ending, [[spoiler:in which you defeat the dark priestess Idoun]]. The best ending occurs if [[spoiler:Idoun is finished off by Roy using the Sword of Seals, and it shows Idoun's soul being saved]].

* ''VideoGame/NieR'' is a unique case. There are technically 4 endings to the game, but the first two endings don't actually alter the overall plot; what changes in from the route to Ending A and the route to Ending B is more of a NewGamePlus: you can now understand the Shades' speech and get a better understanding of [[YouBastard just how much trouble you caused by going around and killing them remorselessly.]] The latter two endings actually do change what happens to the overall story: by acquiring all the weapons in the game, you fight a possessed Kainé as the game's TrueFinalBoss, and from there you have a choice:
** Killing Kainé will result in Ending C: you give her a MercyKill exactly how she asked right before she went berserk.
** [[HeroicSacrifice Sacrificing yourself]] will result in Ending D: You save Kainé's life, but at the cost of your own. And that includes all traces and memory of you in the game's universe. To reinforce this, [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration all of your gameplay data and save data is erased right before your very eyes]], and you aren't allowed to name the protagonist the same name that you used in the previous file in any future games.
* ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'', like its predecessor, doesn't really do traditional Multiple Endings up until the last bit of the game. There are 5 "main" endings A through E, but endings A and B are actually only the first half of the game in terms of its narrative, as route C picks up where they left off. Endings A and B themselves are also not actually different branches, as route B is just route A [[AnotherSideAnotherStory from the perspective of 9S who had been your partner in route A.]] Route C has two endings that come from who you decide to play as against the final boss:
** Choosing to play as [[spoiler:A2]] will give you [[spoiler:9S]] as the final boss and Ending C, [[spoiler:which has A2 hack into 9S's data to cure him of the virus that had infected him at the cost of her own life.]]
** Choosing to play as 9S will give you A2 as the final boss and Ending D, which has 9S kill A2 but also have him accidentally kill himself as well, resulting in his final moments choosing to upload his data with the machines to send somewhere far in outer space.
** After obtaining both endings C and D, you can obtain Ending E, which is basically the "true" ending of the game and [[EarnYourHappyEnding the happiest of the bunch,]] letting all 3 main characters come back to life free to make their own choices in life.
** There are also 21 other endings comprised of every other letter of the alphabet. These endings are more like silly [[NonStandardGameOver Non-Standard Game Overs]] and are achieved by things like failing the prologue mission, [[ViolationOfCommonSense activating your self-destruct function at your bunker]], [[RefusalOfTheCall ignoring your mission directive in a very specific way]], or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking eating a mackerel.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' has a very downplayed example: the ending cutscene is, overall, the same, but [[spoiler: the final scene is slightly different depending on whether you chose to refer to Pneuma as Pyra or Mythra. The camera will pan over to whichever girl you chose, at which point she silently mouths something to Rex before the scene ends.]]

* NonStandardGameOver: If Snowpaw breaks the warrior code and disrespects the Clan enough, then Briarstar will toss him/her out of the Clan, ending the game.

*In [[Videogame/WarriorsTheRoadToImmortality: There are multiple ways to play the game, each which slightly changes the story.
** When fighting the fox near the thicket there are three distinct endings. If you send your protagonist back to camp, you get the bad ending [[spoiler:and Kestrelpaw dies, Badgerpaw goes into shock, and Nettlepaw hates your guts]]. If you fight the fox and manage to escape, you get the good ending [[spoiler:and no one dies]]. If you fight the fox and win somehow, then you get the great ending [[spoiler:and Nettlepaw gets her warrior name early.]]
** Likewise, when returning from your first patrol across the territory, Nightkit asks you what your favorite spot in all the territory was. Depending on your answer, Nightkit has a chance [[spoiler:of dying,]] especially if you say the Cave is the best spot in the territory. [[spoiler: Eaglekit as well if you flee the rogues or don't find her in time.]]
** Break the rules and disrespect the Clan enough, and you'll get a NonStandardGameOver where Briarstar kicks you out of [=ThunderClan=]. That has separate sub-endings as well, cats will say different things about you depending on your relationships with them.
** You can also unlock an endings where you or Badgerpaw become a medicine cat instead of a warrior. Or ''you'' could be a medicine cat. (Badgerpaw won't be happy with you though.)
** Shadowclan's aggression also has different endings-ranging from peace to outright war.
* NonStandardGameOver: If Snowpaw breaks the warrior code and disrespects the Clan enough, then Briarstar will toss him/her out of the Clan, ending the game.

* ''TheWitcher'' mostly comes down to which faction you side with in the end: [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized the Scoia'tael]], [[KnightTemplar the Order]], or [[OmnicidalNeutral yourself]].
** The sequel's primary ending changes depend on who the player sided with in the first act, Roche or Iorveth, and whether Geralt decides to help his ally or go save Triss in the Third act.
** The third game can potentially end with Ciri either [[spoiler:becoming the Empress of Nilfgaard at the cost of never seeing Geralt again, formally undergoing the ritual and going on to become a Witcher of considerable renown, or dying and causing Geralt to become a DeathSeeker.]] How you resolve various political questlines can determine [[spoiler:who wins the war in the North, who rules in Skellige, whether Emperor Emhyr survives or not, and whether Geralt ends up with Triss, Yen or on his own.]]

** In the first ''[[StarOcean1 Star Ocean]]'', the way the main character reacts with the other characters affects his RelationshipValues with them, which in turn affect the way the story unfolds and which of the the MultipleEndings the player gets.
