Heartwarming: Streets of Rage

  • One of the bad endings in the Japanese version of Streets of Rage 3, of all tings, has this. Specifically, it's the "fail to defeat the Final Boss in time" ending: Although you fail to stop the bombs from going off, causing extensive amounts of property damage and most likely casualties throughout Lima, the culprit was identified, nuclear war was still stopped, and the citizens give the heroes a second chance because they tried their best. It takes a bit of the sting out of failing to kill the boss in 3 minutes.
