->''"The curtains close / on a kiss God knows / we can tell the end is near."''
-->-- '''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''', "Once More With Feeling"

When the OfficialCouple kiss at or very near the ending of the series or film. If the kiss itself isn't the very last shot, it will probably be followed by their wedding, a dance, RidingIntoTheSunset, or [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar closing the bedroom door]].

Chances are good this will precede any ending narration or title card that says "And they lived HappilyEverAfter."

Being an [[EndingTropes Ending Trope]], it's a given the examples contain '''{{SPOILER}}S'''. Consider yourself warned.

Sometimes a sub-trope of LastMinuteHookup. Not to be confused with LastKiss.


[[folder: {{Anime}}/Manga]]
* ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' ends with Naruto and Hinata sharing their BigDamnKiss up in the air with FullMoonSilhouette behind. When the scene blacks out, you can hear Naruto thanking Hinata. [[spoiler:The ending credits immediately follows, and it features their WeddingDay]].
* ''Manga/DNAngel'' ends with Daisuke and Riku sharing a kiss while Risa and Hitawi are [[HookedUpAfterwards hinted to hook up later.]] Actually, the only "hint" is that they could be seen as gazing at each other. Whether this actually was supposed to be a hint or not is [[BrokenBase debated in fandom]].
* Simon and Nia in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Interestingly [[spoiler:it's also a LastKiss, since Nia's existence [[NoOntologicalInertia cannot be sustained any longer because she has Anti-Spiral data in her]], and she fades away]].
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' ends with Usagi and Mamoru kissing in the moonlight.
* ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'''s ClosingCredits end on a kiss between Serenity and Endymion as they're reflected in water, with the precise moment their lips touch [[KissingDiscretionShot obscured]] by ripples.
* ''Anime/SummerWars'' ends with a kiss. The main character doesn't quite have the balls to do it, so his love interest has to take things into her own hands and give him a peck on the cheek. He collapses as a result.
* ''LightNovel/{{Corsair}}'' ends this way, with the protagonists kissing on the top deck of their ship.
* ''Anime/ImGonnaBeAnAngel'' ends with Noelle and Yuusuke kissing, mirroring their first kiss from the first episode. [[spoiler: For some, Raphael and Mikael also count, though theirs is not 'that' visible]]
* ''Anime/BrigadoonMarinAndMelan'' ends with the title characters kissing. [[spoiler: It might be a good-bye, kiss, though, so this may actually be a BittersweetEnding.]]
* ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'' ends with Mashiro and Azuki kissing.
* Used literally and figuratively in ''LightNovel/DateALive'' where almost every arc ends with Shido kissing the GirlOfTheWeek. (This [[BroughtDownToNormal seals]] their [[CursedWithAwesome power]] and allows them to live normally.)
* Similar to the above, ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' has Keima kiss each girl at the end of her arc; this drives out the "loose spirit" inside them, allowing Elsie to capture it. Also a LastKiss, because the girl [[LaserGuidedAmnesia forgets their entire relationship afterward]] [[spoiler:though some of them get their memories back later]].
* The last scene of the ''Anime/BlueCometSPTLayzner'' OAV, which is also the end of the whole series, features [[spoiler: Anna and Eiji]] having quite the BigDamnKiss.

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/SuperMarioAdventures'' ends its last chapter with Toadstool giving Mario a kiss on the cheek.

[[folder: Fan Fiction]]

** ''Disney/RobinHood'': Robin Hood and Maid Marian on the way to ''their'' honeymoon.

* ''Film/FantasticFour2005'' ends with the leads kissing.
* A movie version of the myth ''Jason and the Argonauts'' ends with Hera and Zeus watching Jason and Theatre/{{Medea}} kiss. (They [[HappilyEverBefore neglect to tell you]] what [[WomanScorned came next]], of course...)
* ''Film/ThePrincessBride''. "This kiss left them all behind." Notably, the book goes on for a little bit, opting for AndTheAdventureContinues.
* This is the standard ending for ''Film/JamesBond'' films, although the woman saying "Oh, James..." [[NewerThanTheyThink only came later]]. A few examples:
** ''Film/DrNo'': Bond and Honey Ryder make out in a rescue raft while throwing away the mooring rope tying them to a Coast Guard ship.
** ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService'' is famous for ''[[YankTheDogsChain lacking]]'' such an ending. [[spoiler: Poor Tracy. ;-; ]]
** ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'': Bond disconnects a phone call from M to make out with Mary Goodnight.
** ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'':
-->'''Gray:''' Bond! What do you think you’re ''doing''?!
-->'''Bond:''' [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre Keeping the British end up, sir.]]
** ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'': Kara Milovy is disappointed that Bond didn't attend her concert. Turns out he did, and sneaked into her dressing room. It's famous for being the most {{WAFF}}y ending of a Bond film.
** The ending of the tremendously DarkerAndEdgier ''Film/LicenceToKill'' has a {{WAFF}}y ending as well.
** ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'': Bond declines rescue from the Royal Navy in South China Sea so he can make out with Wai Lin. FridgeLogic dictates that they would end up drowning, but oh well...
** ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'', ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' and ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' don't have any such scenes yet, and as such, only time will tell...
* ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' ends with Sam and Flint finally getting to kiss, punctuated by Brent yelling "Yeah! I'm a chicken!"
* Creator/DonBluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina|1994}}'' ends as Thumbelina and the prince kiss, now married.
* ''Film/{{The Girl Next Door|2004}}'': Matthew and Danielle end the movie with a kiss.
* The first ''Film/SpiderMan1'' film subverts this trope. Mary Jane confesses her love to Peter and kisses him. Peter turns her down and insists that can only be friends, [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies knowing that if Spider-Man's enemies found out about her, she would be in constant danger]]. [[Film/SpiderMan2 The second film]] plays it straight when the two kiss passionately.
* Naturally happens in the animated feature ''WesternAnimation/RomeoAndJulietSealedWithAKiss''.

* ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'': The final shot of the film is [[spoiler:Sophie and Howl]] sharing a kiss and then RidingIntoTheSunset.
* ''Film/SinginInTheRain'' ends with Don and Kathy kissing in front of a billboard for their next movie.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians: The Last Olympian'' gets Percy and Annabeth together. "And it was pretty much the best underwater kiss of all time."

[[folder:Live Action Television]]
* In the series finale of ''Series/{{Chuck}}'', the last image is of Chuck and Sarah kissing on the beach.
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' does this with Sabrina and [[spoiler:Harvey]] in the last episode.
** Also lampshaded in the episode that turns the Spellman household into a silent movie. Everything suddenly turns back to normal after Sabrina and Harvey kiss. The aunts explain that the kiss broke the spell because silent movies always end with a kiss, or a comedic pratfall.
* The MusicalEpisode of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. It's lampshaded just before it happens with the lyric "The curtains close on a kiss, God knows we can tell the end is near."
* In ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''[='=]s Season 8 finale (which was supposed to be the GrandFinale, but wasn't), the last image J.D. sees on the "Goodbye" sign is of him and Elliot kissing.
* The end of season four of ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' more or less ends on the image of Arthur and Guinevere kissing as he crowns her Queen of Camelot (though there is a brief SequelHook afterwards involving Morgana in the forest).

[[folder: VideoGames]]
* The [[UpdatedRerelease Playstation version]] of ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' added a movie of Crono's and Marle's marriage to the standard ending. The same movie also shows Kino proposing to Ayla and Frog (in his human form) being knighted.
* The ending of the Witch Hunt DLC for ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' can be the player character and [[BlackMagicianGirl Morrigan]] embracing before stepping off into the unknown.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' ends with Squall and Rinoa kissing as the Balamb Garden flies under the moonlight.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' has [[spoiler:Noctis and Luna share one of these in the post-credit stinger during their wedding in the afterlife.]]

* ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' has Ruby and Tom kiss right before they [[spoiler: escape the Metal Glen and [[RidingIntoTheSunset ride a tram into the sunset]].]]
* ''Webcomic/KidRadd'', only it ends ''right before'' the kiss, which pisses the hero to no end.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''
* And the first season of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''
** [[PostScriptSeason Originally]], anyway.
** And then ''again'' at the ...uh...[[StockSeriesFinales second finale of the series]].
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', then the OfficialCouple does a RidingIntoTheSunset that ends the series.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' without the [[CanonDiscontinuity non-canonical]] third season.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': "Into the Wild Green Yonder" has Fry and Leela finally kiss [[spoiler:before [[RidingIntoTheSunset the crew flies through a wormhole to escape Zapp]]]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM''
* [[OfficialCouple Robin and Starfire]] at the end of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo''. Cyborg remarks it's about time.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' managed to do this without anyone planning it. The show was abruptly cancelled after its third season (at least 4 scripts for Season 4 had already been written). Not only that, but the big VillainTeamUp episode that was originally intended to serve as the third season finale was aired almost a year and a half ''before'' the season ended. The result? One of the last 3 episodes to air ("Lady Sings the Blues") had a B-plot of Jimmy and Cindy accepting their feelings for each other and ended with them kissing on the lips, which is why half the fandom considers it the series finale.
