* ''VideoGame/MutantYearZeroRoadToEden:'' Injured characters are fully healed after battle, but only on Normal difficulty, not on Hard or Very Hard.


* In the ''Franchise/ChaosRings'' series, you recover your HP, but not MP, after battle, so you're still forced to go back to town if you ran out of MP or use an MP recovery item.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/ExitFate'': KO'd party members are restored after the fight. Additionally, if you have any healing spells remaining and characters with MP to use them, they'll be spent to patch up anyone who's hurt, although not necessarily to full health.


* The ''Franchise/{{SaGa|RPG}}'' series from ''VideoGame/RomancingSaGa2'' onward uses this setup along with free post-battle resurrections, but only with health points: LP is lost every time a character is KO'd and attacked while they're down, or hit with attacks that directly target LP, and once it hits zero that character is gone for good.

* The ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' series, including ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2''. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as there's usually several days in-world between fights, more than enough time to patch everyone up.

* Winning a battle in ''VideoGame/CosmicStarHeroine'' will restore your party's hit-points, wipe off all their status effects, recharge every ability and program they have used and make every item in the inventory once again usable, thus there's no advantage to skipping PreExistingEncounters other than gaining time, but time is not an issue in this game.

* ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' and ''RecordOfAgarestWar'' partially use it. While fighting on the map, you are fully recovered after every battle - but inside dungeons, you are ''not''. You also don't get free resurrections, so whether it was on the map or in a dungeon, you'll need to head back to town to bring the dead back to life.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', your companion(s) health is restored at the end of the fight. If you're using the settings where they can die permanently, this only happens if they survive the fight -- if you aren't, they suffer a NonLethalKO at 0HP and only revive once the combat ends.

''New Vegas'' Hardcore mode lets them die permanently if their HP runs out, but they'll still recover full HP after every fight ends. Survival mode in ''4'' has the less extreme requirement that KO'd companions be revived with a Stimpak, else they'll go back to the settlement you've stayed at most recently.


Added DiffLines:

* Although companions in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' get full recovery after battle, your ''[[SubsystemDamage limbs]]'' will recover 1 HP after battle if crippled.

* TabletopGame example: ''TabletopGame/TheDresdenFiles'' RPG normally removes all stress (the game's equivalent to the HitPoint) at the end of every 'battle' situation, be it a physical, mental or social 'battle'. This compensates for the fact that characters have very low stress values to begin with and that the only way to 'heal' in-combat is by buying off stress with penalties called 'consequences', which don't go away at the end of combat. This isn't ''always'' the case, though. The rulebook allows that stress may remain if, for example, a character goes from one fight to another without having the time to stop and catch his or her breath.
