In English, we call footage that plays after the credits of a movie a "stinger". See, for example, the wiktionary entry, definition 8:

A scene shown on films or television shows after the credits.

What would you call this in Japanese? I guess you could describe it as エンドロールの後の映像, but is there a more concise / punchier way of referring to it?

"is there a more concise / punchier way of referring to it?" And if there is, how widely used/known is it? Because I've never heard 'stinger' used like that before in English! – Ash Feb 13 '14 at 12:53
@Ash I've heard it a fair bit in my corner of the US, and it sees use on sites like mediastinger. – senshin Feb 13 '14 at 20:49
@Ash: I've heard it, but only because I've stumbled across the same Wikipedia entry. Kind of reminds me of xkcd.com/978 – Kaji Mar 24 '14 at 15:03

It is usually called 「おまけカット」.

When it consists of bloopers, it is called 「[NG集]{エヌジーしゅう}」.
