** The written part of the Chuunin Exam is one example. The test consists of ten incredibly difficult questions and cheaters are disqualified after being caught cheating a few times. Similarly to the real life Spartan example below, the true purpose of the test is not to determine the candidate’s knowledge, but to test their ability to gather the required information without being caught cheating. Naruto accidentally discovers a real loophole in the written test: you only fail if you’re caught trying to cheat, so there is no penalty for not trying to answer at all. He therefore passes the test by turning in a blank sheet of paper.

Sakura also passes without cheating- she's smart enough to just answer the questions the regular way.

* Invoked but defied in chapter 42 of the manga version of ''ShinryakuIkaMusume''. During a soccer match where Ika is performing poorly, her teammates realize the rules only say non-goalkeeper players can't use ''hands'' to move the ball. There's not a thing in the rules about tentacles (especially since Ika's tentacles are technically part of her head, which explicitly can be used to move the ball). But since Ika's trying really hard to play the normal way, they don't mention this loophole to avoid hurting her pride.

* ''Kimihagu'': Emily becomes the disciplinary committee president and forbids any romantic behavior on the school....however, there are no rules against ADateWithRosiePalms (when Emily goes to the bathroom in Episode 2, well...let's just say that she gets a little carried away, all by herself).

* Koro-Sensei in ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' promises to destroy a tentacle reducing his speed for every top spot the class gets on their finals. The delinquents capitalize on this by studying and acing... Home-Ec?! It may not be one of the major subjects but its still one of the finals.

* In ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' when one of the Orarai team's opponents tap into their radio communications during a match, Miho's team stops to check the rulebook and confirm that, indeed, there is no rule either way about doing so. They then go on to pull a similar exploit, communicating via mails sent between their cell phones and sending false messages over the radios.

** ''Girls und Panzer der Film'' is full of this: Ooarai saves their tanks by officially claiming they "lost" them and having Saunders take possession in the meantime. When Ooarai is then matched against a pro team, outnumbered 30 to 8, all the other schools pull a "short-term transfer" into Ooarai and bring their tanks with them, evening the numbers. One of the match sponsors objects, but is told that since the schools' tanks are private property, there is no rule against bringing them along when transferring.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'': The Antarctic Treaty that both sides of the war abide by is often summed up as "banning all WMD's". So some people get confused that the Solar System (essentially a giant space-borne version of [[http://www.unmuseum.org/burning_mirror.htm Archimedes' Burning Mirror]]) or the Solar Ray ([[WaveMotionGun a giant particle cannon]]) are used without comment any comment of Treaty violations. Actually, what the Antarctic Treaty bans are "Nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons; and {{Colony Drop}}s". Neither the Solar System nor the Solar Ray utilize nuclear power despite their destructive potential, thus they aren't banned by the Treaty.

** The TSAB limits how much concentrated power is allowed in a single unit to cut down on InterserviceRivalry. So how does Hayate get her family and best friends on the same squad when every one of them approaches or exceeds the power limit on their own? Have everyone wear {{Power Limiter}}s of course.

** Uryuu thinks he's pulled this on his father to help Ichigo rescue Orihime from Hueco Mundo. Ryuuken restored Uryuu's powers in return for the promise that Uryuu would never again associate with Shinigami or their allies. Since Ichigo's been abandoned by Soul Society and is only a Substitute, not a real Shinigami, Uryuu concludes he's not breaking the promise to help. Ichigo calls it "twisted logic". Although the kids don't realise it, the manga implies Ryuuken planned the loophole and expected Uryuu to exploit it, ensuring Uryuu would carefully weigh up his options before facing the consequences of his decision like the man he claims to be. [[spoiler: The final arc reveals Uryuu's logic was actually more sound than the kids knew and that Ryuuken's known the truth about Ichigo (namely that Ichigo is himself a Quincy, even though his Quincy powers hadn't actually awakened yet) from the very beginning.]]
