* ''OdinSphere'' has Mercedes, who has the slowest HP, walking speed and Psypher growth, but has extremely high attack power as well as the added bonus of ranged attacks. Her POW depletes whenever she fires her crossbow. Easy solution? Unlimited POW potion + Overload (and a Painkiller can be useful for extra defense)and the boss fight is yours.

* ''OgreBattle 64'' had the [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]] class. Princesses are lawful characters who use spellbooks. More importantly, when a princess is a leader, everyone gets an extra attack, so paladins get four attacks and priests get three chances to heal. You can see where this is going. * sigh* Too bad you only get one. Another game breaker is a strong air force, primarily hawkmen and their upgrades, but also flying monsters and angels. Then there are other lawful gamebreakers: Two priests, two paladins, and a lawful character or third paladin. Leia (not [[StarWars that]] Leia) and four freyas. Chaotic units have a few game breakers of their own: Black knights and liches.

** The original ''OgreBattle''. Princess and Lich can work together in the same unit, and their combined might is enough to burn everything to the ground. On the other hand, due to how the KarmaMeter works, you do ''not'' want to use a unit built like this to liberate towns unless you're angling for a bad ending.

* The Fireball spell from YsII also qualifies. It's extremely energy efficient (one MP will get you a good 25 shots) and one fireball will instantly kill almost any minor enemy. The last two bosses are immune to it, though, so you'll still have to fight them the traditional way.

** After a simple side-quest, but [[LostForever miss able]], type deal on Miltia in the third game, the shop is updated with multiple stat upgrades (when you land on Michtam). With these upgrades, you could make any character as strong as desired. The catch, however, is that the upgrades are expensive.

** The monster recruitment feature of the previous two games is replaced with the ability to collect Monster Hearts, which allow one of the main characters to assume a vocation based on that monster. While many of these monster vocations have partial elemental and status resistances and some useful skills[[labelnote:*]]and in the remake are the only way to permanently learn certain skills[[/labelnote]], most of them don't have the raw power of the endgame human vocations. The most notable exception is the Platinum King Jewel, which not only has access to the most powerful healing spells and and the strongest Frizz-elemental spell in the game, but upon mastery obtain a whopping +255 resilience, making them virtually untouchable by most physical attacks. As if that weren't enough, they also become the only class in the game to obtain ''complete immunity to all elements and status effects,'' making enemy spells virtually useless as well. The only downside is that becoming a Platinum King Jewel takes such an absurdly high effort and time investment that it may as well be a BraggingRightsReward.

* In ''MarvelUltimateAlliance 2'', you can unlock [[spoiler:Green Goblin]] just in time for the last level. On-foot, his melee attacks and powers are nothing special. [[spoiler:Hop on his glider, however,]] and his standard attack is a rapid-fire laser that deals roughly double the damage of another character's melee strikes. It's long-range and piercing, making it ridiculously easy to cut mobs of enemies down in seconds. The only drawback is that he'll be knocked off with a single attack and he has the defense of a wet paper sack, so proper maneuvering is a requirement against enemies with large-area attacks (if you do it right, nobody will survive long enough to actually punch you). It also consumes a small amount of stamina (the game's version of MP), but equipping a Boost item that restores stamina upon attacking an enemy solves that problem quickly. Having him in your party and using his [[spoiler:glider]] against the bosses of the game's final stage makes it about as challenging as fighting off a knife-wielding mugger with a machete.

* ''{{Geneforge}} 2'' introduced a bunch of new spells more than the original, including some very broken stuff in Mental Magic. Playing as an Agent (which pays fewer skill points for magic skills), it's possible to boost Mental Magic and Spellcraft to the point that no enemy can resist your spells. Coupled with spells like Strong Daze (paralyzes all nearby enemies until they take damage or the duration expires), Terror (target cannot fight back and tries to hide in a corner), or Charm (guess what it does), you really don't even need creations.

* ''{{VideoGame/Persona 3}}'' has the Lucifer Persona with Victory Warcry + the Satan Persona for the CombinationAttack Armageddon. Armageddon always does 9,999 damage to all enemies in battle, but has the drawback of it costing all of the main character's SP to use ... however it's not difficult to get a Lucifer with the passive ability Victory Warcry, which after winning a battle completely refills all Health and Magic to full. This means you can spam Armageddon and win every battle since no enemy in the game has over 9,999 Health (not even [[BonusBoss The Reaper]]), with the exception of FinalBoss, and ''that's'' only because the final boss has 13 forms, and thus, 13 health bars, and Elizabeth, the game's SuperBoss.

** Basically, to cut all of this short, ArcRiseFantasia, a NintendoHard game, gets considerably easier as you advance further into the game and your characters grow into their full potential. But note that all of these {{Game Breaker}}s will do you no good if you don't apply strategy to at lest a degree, as quite a few bosses are ''still'' quite hard.

** The Eternal Sphere, arguably the best weapon in the game and by far the most broken. You get it early, really early if you abuse itemcrafting (probably not even 1/4 into the game). From the moment you get it, just about everything you fight afterwords becomes ridiculously easy.
