* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' a few games have HP restored when a character classes up, but averts it with normal level ups, leaving a character with 1 hp of damage (if at full health). This usually comes into play as a free chance to allow your staff wielders heal and get XP themselves.

Added DiffLines:

** Averted in some of the newer ''Persona'' games, such as the fourth and the fifth. If, for example, you have 50/100 HP and 40/80 SP when you level up, and gain 5 HP and 3 SP, you will go up to 55 HP and 43 SP, rather than full health and SP.


* ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' gives full health and endurance, revives you if you're downed, instantly charges certain class abilities, and launches nearby enemies. Tomes of knowledge give a level on use. Cue underleveled players using them to [[GameBreaker instantly heal and send enemies flying]], especially in World Vs. World. This has since been corrected by making them unusable in combat.

* In every ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' game starting with the second, you have two kinds of fill-ups. When Ratchet's health levels up, he gets fully healed (in most games) and emits a flash of energy that kills every nearby enemy. When a weapon levels up, its ammo gets refilled.
** Leading to the odd effect that it's often easier/better to be lower levels than be full-up, due to the rate of growth; especially JustForFun/{{egregious}} is the Harbinger weapon in the 4th game that pretty much doesn't run out of ammo until you reach max level with it, at which point it's often TooAwesomeToUse.

* ''VideoGame/LaMulana'' doesn't actually have character levels, but it does have an EXP bar. When you fill it up, it replenishes your life meter.

to:

* ''VideoGame/LaMulana'' doesn't actually have character levels, but it does have an EXP bar. When you fill it up, it replenishes your life meter. This is highlighted in a puzzle where you need to traverse a body of water that [[SuperDrowningSkills hurts you]]: no matter how much life you have, you will die before reaching the other side, unless you ''almost'' fill up your EXP, and kill some enemies partway through to refill your life.



* Taken [[UpToEleven up to twelve]] in the first ''VideoGame/LuminousArc''. To elaborate: Your HP ''and'' MP refill whenever you level up. If one of your units heals or buffs any of your other units, it gets 30 EXP; if one of your units heals or buffs itself and ''any other unit'' (enemies included) at the same time, it gets 30 EXP. You level up at every 100 EXP. You can see the infinite loop where you can [[GameBreaker get your]] WhiteMage [[GameBreaker to Lv.99 in a single battle as soon as she's able to cast a multi-target heal spell that heals as much damage as the weakest enemy in the game can deal]] (for the record, the basic multitarget heal spell heals about 4x the caster's level); if she's too weak to take out enemies on her own at the time, bring a unit that can buff ''her'' for even more leveling. Yes, you can [[CrazyAwesome level up by being a nice guy and healing enemies (as long as you heal the caster with the same spell)]]. Why is this Up To Twelve instead of UpToEleven? If you repeatedly cast healing spells on a character enough times, they'll get ''an AntiMagic shield that lasts for 3 hits''. And the next time you cast a heal spell on them after the shield disappears? They'll probably get another one, ''even if it's not in the same battle''. Yes, this makes preparations for the FinalBoss much easier, whose primary attacks are also magic. So, in short, not only does ''Luminous Arc'' give you a Level Up Fill Up, it ''rewards you for abusing it''.

* In ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist'', when you get a Reputation Level increase, your health gets reset back to maximum, you get placed back on your feet if you're downed (and it counts as being helped up for the purposes of challenges), and if you just unlocked your first secondary weapon, you also get that weapon at however much ammo you would've had at the start of the mission. Very handy, but if you hit level 145, you won't be getting another one until another skill tree gets added. Playing on Overkill or Overkill 145+ removes this.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'', your HP will be refilled every time you gain a new HP level.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper'' fully restores HP and cures any negative status conditions, and most importantly ability uses (AP), when a character levels up. In its early days when orbs were handed out with an eyedropper making it slow and difficult to hone abilities, level cap was 50 and Record Materia had yet to be introduced, [[LimitBreak Soul Breaks]] were rare and single hit, and BossRush stages consisted of 5+ boss fights (as opposed to the max of 2 that exist now); it was a common tactic to carefully manage EXP so that characters would level after the 2nd or 3rd boss to restore their extremely limited ability count.


* ''DragonBallZ: Legend of the Super Saiyan'' restores your HP and KI at a level up without having to go to an inn or using an item card. It helps when you're in a dangerous situation because if your character's HP reaches zero, [[FinalDeath they're dead]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' at least, you have to rest in a bed to level up, so you heal up regardless. ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' on the other hand lets you level up at any time. And not only that, but after leveling up, you aren't healed until you choose a stat to increase. This gives you the opportunity to intentionally wait to choose a stat until you're in a fight and you need healing.

* Some titles in the ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic'' series do this.
** ''Might and Magic VI'', ''Might and Magic VII'' and ''Might and Magic VIII'' all require you visit a training centre to level up, but as part of the actual gaining of a level, your party will rest, fully healing them. Of course, if you then spend the skill point you got on Body Building or Meditation (which increase a character's hit points and spell points, respectively), they won't still be fully healed.
** ''Might and Magic X: Legacy'', on the other hand, almost plays the trope completely straight... except for the fact that leveling up still gives each character skill points they can put into skills that raise their HP and MP, and ALSO gives them points they can put into their stats including the stats governing how much HP and MP they have. Still, it's still possible for a character to level mid-combat, allowing them to then fire off their super-powerful spell a second time that combat.

* In ''VideoGame/Titanfall2, the Monarch [[HumongousMecha Titan]] gets a free shield recharge every time it levels up it's Upgrade Core. Given that the Upgrade Core's SuperMeter rolls back around to the beginning after getting a full level, a savvy Monarch pilot can stay in their mech for a very long time, especially in Attrition, Bounty Hunt, and Frontier Defense games.
