** 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.

** If you're patient or don't mind waiting throughout the game for your investment to bear fruit, you can get the even ''more'' broken Wonder Momo in the first game. The Wonder Momo heals 2800 HP. That's less than the Deluxe Sushi, but the thing is that any healing Magnus that heals more than the Wonder Momo will eventually rot, whereas the Wonder Momo is ''permanent''. If that wasn't bad enough, the Wonder Momo will, without fail, heal any and all status effects '''including death.''' If used for defense, it will also raise resistance to ''all'' status effects by 100%. If THAT wasn't bad enough, you can get an '''infinite''' amount of Wonder Momoes. The ''only'' drawback is that you have to wait 80 hours' time for the necesary Magnus to change into Wonder Momo. The "drawback", however, is mitigated by the fact that the Wonder Momo evolves from the mundane Peach Magnus, which you can easily get in the Ancient Library in Anuenue from enemies. So if you choose to wait, you can have an absurd supply of what is arguably the best healing Magnus in the game in time ready to help you through [[ThatOneBoss the worst]] of the game. With 5, it's almost impossible to lose. With ''10'', it ''is'' practically impossible to lose.

** There was an item that could be obtained by using the pickpocket ability on one of the people in Mars Village called the Treasure Chest. What it does, is when its used it gives three random items to your inventory. Normally, this might not seem like much, until you realize that if your lucky enough, you can get extremely high powered weapons and items normally only obtainable on the second disk. One of these weapons is [[DiskOneNuke Claude's Marvel Sword which combined with the later mentioned Battle Suit trick make the rest of disk one a joke]], especially if used with the Lasguss Mountain trick mentioned above. You steal the Treasure Chest, leave the village and save, then use the Treasure Chest, and hope you get the Marvel Sword. If you don't, reload your file and try again until you do. It's that easy.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' has two main ones. First off, there's a BonusBoss, [[spoiler:Dario]], who, if fought normally, is ''incredibly'' difficult, and beating him nets you the Mastermune, arguably Serge's best weapon. [[note]]Technically, the Spectral Swallow is stronger, but the Mastermune has a higher critical hit ratio. However, the Mastermune does not carry over to a NewGamePlus.[[/note]] However, due to a bit of ArtificialStupidity in his programming, it's possible to prevent him from ''ever'' attacking just by spamming the right kind of element every turn. This allows him to be beaten very early by sneaky players. Second, completing that fight allows an optional character, Glenn, to claim the legendary sword Einlanzer. ''[[DualWorldGameplay From both worlds]].'' The capacity to [[DualWielding dual wield]] the InfinityPlusOneSword makes him one of, if not ''the'', most powerful characters in the game.

**Made even more broken with the Aura of Command spell. Normally when a creature is summoned it does whatever it wants and does not follow you. With Aura of Command you can make permanent summons. A Scorpion Trap at level 1 Trap Skill (max level is 5) could spawn a scorpion capable of killing everything up to level 12. A level 5 Trap skill scorpion could kill everything in the game aside from bosses, minibosses, and creatures in set piece battles.

** ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' also makes it very easy to edit your save file, which means you can change how much money you have. This can be used to afford the Temy Armor easily, as well as completely skip one boss fight ([[spoiler:Muffet won't fight you if you buy an item from her bake sale, but they cost 9999G each...]]).
** For Neutral-Pacifist and True Pacifist runs, the Burnt Pan + Stained Apron. Burnt Pan causes healing items to heal 4 extra HP, and on the aforementioned runs your max HP is 20. Stained Apron causes you to recover 1 HP every other turn. Stock your inventory with Bisicles, which heal 11 HP each and can be used twice (and with the Burnt Pan bonus, this goes up to 15 HP each) and you're set for most battles.
** For those who don't want to cheat and edit their save file, there is another very easy way to make lots of money. Simply buy as many Cloudy Glasses from Gerson as you can, then sell them all at Temmie Village. You'll make a profit of around 200G every time, more if you haggle with Temmie successfully (every eighth item you sell her, she'll exclaim (paraphrased) "I gotta have that!". If you say "No" to her at this point, she will offer you more money for the item. Saying "No" again will cause her to say "You will regret this." in perfect English, and withdraw her offer. [[UrbanLegendOfZelda Contrary to rumour, this does ''not'' cause all Temmie enemies to kill you in one hit from that point on.]])

* ''{{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 the FinalBoss, and ''that's'' only because the final boss has 13 forms, and thus, 13 health bars.

* Sira of ''{{Albion}}'' can freeze every enemy on the field (except bosses, which instead, can be binded by thorn snares), has beyond average speed, and is also a very decent fighter, who can land critical hits more ofthen than most characters in the beginning.
* In ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol'', pistols have the Chain Shot ability. It slows time to a crawl and lets you aim a number of pistol shots with perfect accuracy. At low levels, this lets you snipe a few difficult enemies with a pistol. At high levels, you can kill ''bosses'' instantly by putting 6 bullets in their head at once. Add Brilliance and you can do it twice.

*** And to make sure one always has enough gold to spare, there is an easily exploitable quirk in the game's trading system that can be used to gain infinite money. The trick requires some starting funds though, as one needs to go around and buy a lot of diamonds or other high-value items. The game's trade system works on a hard-coded supply/demand curve, meaning that the more items of a certain type a vendor has, the less each individual item costs. This also applies when one buys in bulk, so it is possible to gather 50 diamonds and sell them to a vendor for 100% of their price, and then buy them back in bulk for 60% of the price one just sold them and then repeat the process infinitely. Throw in a few levels in Guile and every vendor in the game becomes a free money printing machine.
