You can even use the first portal located between the two princess's studies to use Princess Zelda's study as a makeshift Fairy Fountain before the final battle.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations'' is an unusual example given that it has a somewhat non-linear storytelling. However, Episode 1-1 shows that the plot for the game essentially starts on the shore overlooking the ruins of Terragrigia. It is here that Jill and Parker find the sample of the T-Abyss virus and they are told that Chris and Jessica have disappeared, prompting the rest of the game where they go to the Queen Zenobia to search for them. At the end of the game, O'Brian reveals that the third and final ship, the Queen Dido, is where they'll find what they need in order to end everything. Where is the Queen Dido? Underwater at the ruins of Terragrigia, where the plot started.

Added DiffLines:

** Somewhat Zigzagged in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics''. The tutorial level starts at Orbonne Monestary, but this is revealed to be simply where Ramza ended up due to the events of the first chapter. The game's entire story does start properly as Chapter 2 begins where the tutorial level left off as Ramza had been explaining the events up to that point to his companions and the plot is kicked off. Later, at the end of Chapter 4, Ramza must return to Orbonne as it is the site of the portal that would lead to the very final levels.


Added DiffLines:

* Firelink Shrine serves as this to the entire ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' trilogy as this is the beginning hub where the Chosen Undead begins their quest in earnest in Lordran. Then, in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'', the Ashen One must return to Firelink Shrine in order to reach the final battle. In another twist, the final battle is with the Lord of Cinders, who contains the soul of the Chosen Undead themselves, making it come full-circle in more ways than one.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheLastSharknadoItsAboutTime'' 's last scene takes place [[spoiler: in Fin's bar from the first film, but because they've been erased from history, there's no sharknado this time around]].


* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', the adventure technically begins in Tataroo Valley. In the Epilogue, [[spoiler: when Luke/Asch/whoever comes back]], everything takes place in Tataroo Valley. It's also an example of [[DistantFinale a distant finale]], in that it all takes place two and a half years after the end of the game/anime.

to:

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', once the adventure technically begins in game's basic tutorial is over, Luke is teleported away from his manor to Tataroo Valley. In Valley, where the Epilogue, [[spoiler: when Luke/Asch/whoever comes back]], everything takes place in Tataroo Valley. It's also an example of [[DistantFinale a distant finale]], in that it all takes place two and a half years after game proper begins. At the end of the game/anime.game, when you get to TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon, said final dungeon happens to be hovering right over Tataroo Valley.


* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'': TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon is in Prison Island, where the party had been to previously and where "Zanza" released the Monado's shackles. New areas of Prison Island can now be accessed due to the teleporters that have been activated.


Compare HereWeGoAgain, {{Bookends}} and GoBackToTheSource. SoNearYetSoFar is a variant where even the final climactic goal is known and likely even visible from the start, but you can't accomplish that goal until the finale. Not related to WhenItAllBegan; that is a chronology trope (although TimeTravel can cause them to overlap, specifically in cases of SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong).

* The Hive, the heart of the Kreegan infestation of [[VideoGame/MightAndMagic Enroth]] during and before ''VI'' and one of the landing points during the Night of Falling Stars is located in the region of Sweet Water... [[DoomedHometown which is also your characters' home village, from which they fled during the intro of the game]], saved from death by a benign wizard. (Of course, this only counts if the cinematic opening sequence at the start of the game is considered the beginning.)

* In ''Anime/{{Claymore}}'' Raki returns to his hometown after the seven year TimeSkip as a [[FutureBadass badass Yoma-asskicking warrior]]. And yet they still talk shit about him. [[ShamingTheMob Raki sets them straight, though]].

Added DiffLines:

** The series finale also ends on the same beach where Chuck and Sarah ended their first date, only this time [[spoiler: Chuck is telling an amnesiac Sarah to trust him, rather than her telling him]].

Added DiffLines:

* Ichiro Suzuki was the first Japanese fielder to make it big in Major League Baseball, signing with the Seattle Mariners in 2001 following nine seasons with NPB's Orix [=BlueWave=]. After twelve seasons with the Mariners he was traded to the New York Yankees, with whom he played for two and a half seasons before signing with the Miami Marlins for three more. He re-signed with the Mariners in 2018, and finally announced his retirement from professional baseball after a two-game series between the Mariners and Oakland A's on March 21, 2019...in Tokyo, where the teams were playing those games.
