Gnarly Simon
Rotatrix
BorderTrix
Knights & Demons DX
Rotatrix & BorderTrix are technical demos more than games. When you includes demos then add others as Shock Megademo & Overscan.
Actually Rotatrix is a development tool, not a tech demo.

My own Mazeball falls into that Birds and Bees category of border stripes just being a mildly distracting effect of generating sound fx, but I think you would many other games that do the same

There was one game that had a countdown (54321) where the numbers used the whole screen, can't remember the game now just remember being seriously impressed.

I remembered Barbarian II having some neat stable border rasters when you completed the game but looking at youtube and the RZX-Archive recording there were none. So I checked my personal ending save state folder, found the Barbarian 2 ending and lo there were rasters. Perhaps they only appear when played on a 48k, seems the 128k just plays music instead.

Here's the rasters:
