Added DiffLines:
** Instead of a GameOver, it results in the game switching the player's POV and until Hiro is defeated, you now play as [[EvenEvilHasStandards Evulz]].

* '''Inverted''': A ''very'' unusual failure condition (such as [[SidetrackedByTheGoldSaucer gambling into a state of crippling debt]]) still yields the same GameOver screen as running out of HitPoints, without even a cutscene to lampshade it.

to:
* '''Exploited''': ??? The main writers spent much time putting details into the game world, so the ones that don't fit into the main story can be hinted at through the game overs. * '''Defied''': ??? The developers program one single game over screen in, because they don't want to sidetrack the more morbid players by making them want to kill the player character in spectacular ways. * '''Discussed''': ??? In a game that is aware of its true nature: --> '''Hiro''': [[BreakingTheFourthWall Hey, player?]] [[WhatTheHellPlayer You sure that you're just really bad at this game and not simply trying to find new terrible fates for me all the time?]] * '''Conversed''': ???'''Conversed''': -->'''Gamer 1''': What on earth did Hiro just do? Did he just turn into the villain?! -->'''Gamer 2''': Relax. It's not a canon plot twist, it's a game over that incorporates a [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment plot twist never to be mentioned elsewhere]]. Want to see another, even better event like that? Hand me the controller for a sec...

Additional ways to play with this trope

These range from simply consequencing of failing and horrible deaths to dramatic divergences. * '''Downplayed''': Dying to [[FinalBoss Emperor Evulz]] has the same game over montage as usual except that Hiro's head appears on the pikes as well.
