From Final Fantasy Wiki

"The End" is a common phrase used at the end of numerous works of fiction, including many Final Fantasy games. The ending screen is usually a black background with bold text saying "The End" in the center. There is no input generated while in this screen and so one of the many options is usually to punch in a special code for a mini-game, or to turn off the system. After a few minutes, the Prelude plays, and in some cases in the early games a star field will scroll out of the screen.
