** In the [[VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}} sequel]], Gaige has an ability called Anarchy, which increases her damage but reduces her accuracy for every stack. Under normal circumstances, the max number of stacks is 400, which equals 700% bonus to damage and an equal penalty to accuracy. However, with a special class mod that drops from a raid boss, you can get up to 600 stacks, for 1,050%. Once you pass about 550 stacks, bullets [[BizarreAndImprobableBallistics stop making any sort of sense]]. They'll zig-zag in mid-air, land behind you, bounce up and down, and all sorts of crazy stuff. In the rare event you actually ''hit something'', they'll take so much damage, LudicrousGibs is almost guaranteed.
** In the same sequel, Salvador's "5 Shots or 6" gives him a chance to gain 2 ammo upon shooting (1 is automatically consumed via said shooting, the other is added to his magazine), maxed out at 25%. Class mods (Most notably the Legendary Hoarder) can raise it to 50% or even 55%, meaning he's capable of ''spontaneously generating more ammo'' just by shooting. Vladof Rocket launchers don't consume ammo every 3rd shot and the Butcher shotgun randomly generates more ammo every few shots or so, meaning with these guns, Salvador can literally have his ammo gauge bounce from nearly empty to max, empty again, and keep going up and down. Once you reach this level of insanity, the best way to conserve ammo is to shoot as fast as possible and as much as possible.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has one in Rayquaza, specifically Mega Rayquaza. Like many other Pokemon from the sixth Generation, it gains Mega Evolution (a temporary SuperMode only available in Battle). ''Unlike'' other Pokemon who can mega evolve, Rayquaza ''does not need a mega stone to do so''. Justified due to it having a unique organ that has properties similar to that of a mega stone.

* ''{{VideoGame/Undertale}}'''s [[BloodKnight Undyne]], perhaps taking cues from [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Viral]], manages to produce her own [[{{Determinator}} Determination]], which monsters are stated to be unable to do. She adamantly refuses to die when the player kills her - until she melts. [[spoiler:In the No Mercy route, the player character has to [[HeroicSecondWind kill her twice]] - she determines herself into a [[BonusBoss more powerful form]] [[TheApocalypseBringsOutTheBestInPeople just to stop you]].]]

** Mega Rayquaza is so overpowered, ''it broke the metagame''. It was deemed too strong for even the highest tier, Ubers, where many of the PurposefullyOverpowered Legendary (and pseudo-Legendary) Pokemon go. Smogon was forced to create a new tier, Anything Goes, just so Mega Rayquaza could be used without being banned. This makes Rayquaza more powerful than Arceus, the ''god of the Pokemon world.''

* In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', [[SelfImposedChallenge you can use]] [[LevelEditor Custom Night]] to set all 4 of the animatronics' AI to 20 ([[HarderThanHard the absolute highest it can go]]), but developer Scott Cawthon didn't program in a reward because he thought it was [[PlatformHell impossible to beat]]. A lets-player called [=BigBug=] proved him wrong, after ''23 hours'' of trying. ''LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}}'' soon followed, after 7 hours straight trying to beat it. There's currently a section of the [[Awesome/FiveNightsAtFreddys Crowning Moment of Awesome]] page for people who've been able to beat [[FanNickname 4/20 Mode]].

** Several long-running succession forts (including [[LetsPlay/Battlefailed Failcannon]]) have well-documented cases where the fortress's layout is so labyrinthine, so complex and bizarre, that it actually breaks the game's pathing engine. (In the case of Failcannon, this saved them from the wrath of at least one Forgotten Beast which wanted to ascend to the populated levels, and knew a path existed, but ''couldn't find it''.) As if that weren't impossible enough {{Bizarchitecture}}, rooms sometimes exist that none of the players can locate. They can scroll without impediment throughout the entire fortress, and yet the only way to find these rooms is consistently to wait for a dwarf to come in and then zoom to them. Somehow, looking for it any other way, it cannot be found...
