• 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.

When the Official Couple kiss at or very near the ending of the series or film. If the kiss itself isn't the very last shot, it will probably be followed by their wedding, a dance, Riding Into the Sunset, or closing the bedroom door.

Chances are good this will precede any ending narration or title card that says "And they lived Happily Ever After."

Being an Ending Trope, it's a given the examples contain SPOILERS. Consider yourself warned.

Sometimes a sub-trope of Last-Minute Hookup. Not to be confused with Last Kiss.

Examples of Sealed with a Kiss include:




 Gray: Bond! What do you think you’re doing?!

Bond: Keeping the British end up, sir.



Live Action Television

  • In the series finale of Chuck, the last image is of Chuck and Sarah kissing on the beach.
  • Sabrina the Teenage Witch
  • The Musical Episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's lampshaded just before it happens with the lyric "The curtains close on a kiss, God knows we can tell the end is near."
  • In Scrubs's Season 8 finale (which was supposed to be the Grand Finale, but wasn't), the last image J.D. sees on the "Goodbye" sign is of him and Elliot kissing.
  • The end of season four of Merlin more or less ends on the image of Arthur and Guinevere kissing as he crowns her Queen of Camelot (though there is a brief Sequel Hook afterwards involving Morgana in the forest).

Video Games

  • The Playstation version of Chrono Trigger added a movie of Crono's and Marle's marriage to the standard ending. The same movie also shows Kino proposing to Ayla and Frog (in his human form) being knighted.
  • The ending of the Witch Hunt DLC for Dragon Age can be the player character and Morrigan embracing before stepping off into the unknown.
