But in his eagerness to prove he is in control of the story and no one gets to tell him what to do, Stanley leapt from the platform and plunged to his death.


The Powerful Ending is the ending in The Stanley Parable that occurs when Stanley jumps from the cargo lift to the floor below him.

This ending is in the HD remake and Ultra Deluxe.

Obtaining The Ending

Exit Stanley's Office. At the Two Doors Room, pick the one on the right. Pass through the Employee Lounge, and to the Warehouse. Then jump off the platform or the cargo lift, and drop to the floor below.

The Ending

As Stanley hits the ground, the screen will go black, and the Narrator speaks that Stanley feels as if he had the power to ruin the Narrator's story by jumping off the cargo lift. He congratulates Stanley (in a sarcastic tone) for his attempt to take matters into his own hands. Then the game will restart.

With The Bucket

If Stanley is holding The Bucket, the Narrator explains that Stanley was too scared to go on knowing he may be separated from The Bucket, opting instead to kill both of them. The game then resets.


  • The Cold Feet Ending is near identical to this one, however the player must step onto the cargo lift and then quickly step off, letting it move without them on it, before jumping down.
