  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A feature created to improve the replayability of some games. Some games are designed so you can reach Hundred-Percent Completion in one go, but some others don't make everything the game has to offer available until you've beaten the game (that is, seen the credits) at least once. This is very common in Role Playing Games and games with levels, but it can appear in every genre.

The exact things you can unlock vary from game to game. Common unlockables include a Secret Character, higher difficulty levels, a new costume, the True Final Boss, and many more. Sometimes the game makes the content unlockable by doing a rewind to the last Save Point before fighting the Final Boss, but it's quite more common that the unlockables appear only in New Game+, which is Post End Game Content on its own right too.

A subtrope of Unlockable Content and supertrope to New Game+ and Endgame Plus. It will frequenly overlap with the other subtropes, Double Unlock being the most frustrating and most common one. Necessary for Hundred-Percent Completion. Compare with Downloadable Content. Compare also with Extended Gameplay.

Examples of Post End Game Content include:
