* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''
** Near the climax, [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Beast]], in order to find Belle, ''tears through dimensions by sheer force of will''. Maleficent comments on how this was impossible; everyone else (herself included) either needs aid from the Heartless or a gummi ship to cross dimensions. Beast [[AchievementsInIgnorance doesn't know how he did it]]. He just wanted to see Belle that badly.
** Also, [[TheSoulless the Nobodies]]. Their entire existence is supposed to be impossible, [[UpToEleven and Namine is even more impossible.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Iji}}'': Assassin Asha can dodge almost all attacks you throw at him on his second fight, including a ''nuke'', even though you're fighting him within an enclosed space. A '''''nuke'''''. A nuke that, in his previous fight with you, triggered an instant victory.



* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'':
** One fact that you're unlikely to discover during the main quest: you can break the cap on HP and MP! [[spoiler:Granted, it's only by one digit each.]]
** The first time you discover that there is such a thing as an Unsent, and that people don't necessarily turn into monsters after they die and go unexorcised, it probably seems like this trope. But then, the story goes on to break that rule so many times and in so many different ways that things veer toward [[NewRulesAsThePlotDemands a different trope entirely.]]
* ''VideoGame/BattleClash'': Eddie and the ST Valius. This guy is so fast he can jump out of the corner of one side of the screen and reappear from the other less than a second later, landing in the same exact spot. In other words, he manages to cover the entire span of the stage you're on in a single jump. The stage in question (the Tower of Babel) is a ''giant space elevator''.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'', Some class abilities allow more ammo to be used than some guns can hold. In some cases this allows for five shotgun rounds to be used when only''two'' are loaded as well as sub-machinegun and assault rifles being able to hold as much as THOUSANDS of rounds. With the right character skills, even revolvers with a clearly-visible number of chambers can hold more rounds than should be possible.
** 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.

* ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireDragonQuarter'': [[spoiler: In order to finish off Chetyre, Ryu uses D-Breath to push his D-Ratio up to 169% and counting, when normally hitting 100% causes a NonstandardGameOver due to his body being taken over by Odjn: the reason why he still manages to survive afterwards is because Odjn severs their bond afterwards.]]
* ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'': It's a RunningGag that Midori's innocence a la ThePowerOfLove is actually ''helping'' the demonic situation. Surprisingly, [[spoiler:this is even able to convince a Black Frost to join the main cast]].
* ''VideoGame/DigimonWorld Data Squad'': Yuma managed to make ''the physical embodiment of Lust'' feel pure love.
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress''
** The "DwarfFortress/Deathgate" succession fort has a Battery that produces power from nothing. "The physics is weeping".
** 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...
* In the final battle of ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', [[spoiler: Paula's Pray command [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] and gets the Player to attack and destroy Giygas, a being so powerful and alien that humans [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm cannot grasp its true form]].]]
* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, all {{Skill Score}}s are {{cap}}ped at 100 for all characters, including the [=PCs=], representing the peak of mortal ability (you can raise them further temporarily with magic, but never permanently). And then there is Oghma Infinitum, a TomeOfEldritchLore that contains knowledge so otherworldly, it will actually raise your skills permanently ''above'' 100 (if they're already maxed out). It helps that the book's Daedric master, Hermaeus Mora, is an EldritchAbomination that transcends reality, anyway.
* A character in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' claims to have done the impossible and shot a Brotherhood of Steel Paladin through the eye hole of their PowerArmor. If you've met the Brotherhood and gotten in their good books you can challenge these BlatantLies by pointing out that their eye protection is bullet proof.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' After [[spoiler: seeing his granddaughter and teammates fall to Exdeath's magical traps]], Galuf stands up to the BigBad, shakes off his magical bindings, gets knocked down to 0 HP and still keeps fighting regardless of what high-level spells Exdeath keeps tossing at him, [[spoiler: and through HeroicSacrifice saves the rest of the party]]. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood When an enraged --but astonished-- Exdeath demands to know what kind of ''hate'' could drive Galuf to such an extreme]], the latter replies that [[ThePowerOfLove it isn't hate that powers him]].

** One fact that you're unlikely to discover during the main quest: you can break the cap on HP and MP! [[spoiler:Granted, it's only by one digit each.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': If the ONI officer reviewing Cole's life is correct, [[spoiler:Cole SURVIVED by executing an in-atmosphere slip-space jump, and is most likely finally living a life of peace far outside UNSC or Covenant space. [[EarnYourHappyEnding He deserves it.]]]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Iji}}'': Assassin Asha can dodge almost all attacks you throw at him on his second fight, including a ''nuke'', even though you're fighting him within an enclosed space. A '''''nuke'''''. A nuke that, in his previous fight with you, triggered an instant victory.

* ''VideoGame/{{MUGEN}}'' has original characters that are ''so'' [[GameBreaker game-breaking]] that they can '''[[InstantWinCondition defeat their opponent before the match even starts]]'''!!!
* ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'': Yessha's mother Catherine was good at this. In the novels she's mentioned as having written "Torus", an stable doughnut-shaped Age, which features a huge waterfall that falls through the planet's core, turns into rain and gets carried back by clouds to refill the Ocean, that in turn, feeds the Waterfall. Atrus' reaction to first seeing this was that until then, he had thought it ''impossible'' to do such things with the Art.
* ''VideoGame/{{Pirate101}}'': El Toro uses a whip for attacking and swinging over obstacles. He can even latch onto thin air with it.
* The Nameless One of ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', if eloquent enough, ''can [[PuffOfLogic argue a person into nonexistence]]'' by logically proving to him he cannot exist.
* ''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.



* Gen has the ability to cut rope with a lead pipe with ImplausibleFencingPowers. [=T260G=] [[{{Lampshade}} momentarily comments on the impossibility]] of this in VideoGame/SagaFrontier.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV''. It's made pretty clear from the start that the computer virus-like Dominatrix in the ''Enter the Dominatrix'' DLC is a very powerful opponent within the simulation, but it doesn't become fully clear just ''how'' powerful until near the end of the DLC when she [[spoiler:''resets'' the DLC]]. Remember: not only are parts of ''Enter the Dominatrix'' not even set in the simulation, i.e. the only place her powers should logically be usable, the FramingDevice for the entire DLC is that it's a flashback ''about'' the Dominatrix. [[MindScrew Try not to think too hard about
this one.]]
* In ''VideoGame/ShogunTotalWar'', In the Mongol Invasion campaign, you cannot perform a ceasefire from both sides- The Mongols neither have a Leader active and cannot make Emissaries. You can, however can stop the "At war" status on accident, by utilizing a Rebel revolt and not having any other borders touching the Opposing side. An [[http://imageshack.us/a/img6/4063/nu4g.png example from the mongol side.]]
* The main villain ''VideoGame/SlyCooperAndTheThieviusRaccoonus'', Clockwerk, has been
in VideoGame/SagaFrontier.a feud with Sly's family for millennia. Turns out he turned himself into a robot that runs on the power of his own hatred in order to live so long. This is closer to ''{{Magitek}}'' than the rest of the more mundane science in the rest of the series.



* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro: The Eternal Night'' Post stage 1 of the boss fight. Scratch and Sniff manage to somehow pick Skabb off the ground and carry him out the window despite him being gigantic compared to them. Spyro and Sparx {{lampshade|Hanging}} this.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'', Some class abilities allow more ammo to be used than some guns can hold. In some cases this allows for five shotgun rounds to be used when only''two'' are loaded as well as sub-machinegun and assault rifles being able to hold as much as THOUSANDS of rounds.

* {{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).
