** The students are forbidden from sleeping anywhere but the dorm rooms. However, the rule does not specify that students have to sleep in their assigned room, nor are they forbidden from sharing a room with another student. Also, it only covers deliberately sleeping, being knocked unconscious is not counted as a violation of the rule.

*** Speaking of the second game, the entire premise of that game can revolve around this. [[spoiler: Once Monokuma took the role as the teacher for the Neo World Program, Monokuma needed to find loopholes in order for his plan into reviving Junko Enoshima to work as the role of the teacher can not kill a student unless they break the rules. Because of that, he ended up creating the killing school trip as if a student committed murder, they would of broke the rule against violence at the island thus Monokuma has the right to execute the killer if they kill somebody.]]
*** Also from the second game, [[spoiler: Nagito ended up threatening to blow-up the entire island killing everybody inside it(which is actually a bluff, but Hajime doesn't know that yet). Hajime attempts to convince Monokuma to stop him as he would of broke the rule in which you can't kill more than two people. However, that rule does not take place until ''after'' it was broken thus Monokuma refuses to stop him.]]

* ''VideoGame/InTheGroove 2''[='=]s r21 update allows players to play their own songs, but the song must not be tagged as longer than 2 minutes. [[ExactWords Emphasis on "tagged"]]; the game reads the sound file's metadata to check for length, but it's possible to tinker with the metadata so that the game thinks a 5-minute song is actually only 1:30 long. The r23 update closes this loophole up by just cutting off songs after 2 minutes and 15 seconds.

The popular Simply Love theme for the freeware game ''VideoGame/{{Stepmania}}'' shows the most popular fake song length, 1:45, as "not 1:45".

* Similar to Germany before WorldWarTwo (see RealLife example), USSR in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2'' manages to build up a large military partly through this trope. One of the restrictions is the limitation on military aircraft. So, the Soviets build thousands of armored zeppeling to act as bombers. Ain't No Rule about mind-controlling giant squids to sink Allied ships, right? Having powerful psychics under your command means you can have every Allied inspector come back saying exactly what you want him to say, even if he just saw a column of Apocalypse tanks roll by.

** In the backstory, the [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] were known to bend the "Earthbones" (essentially the laws of nature and physics) with their creations, allowing them to [[RagnarokProofing last for millennia]].

Notably, the core of the Dwemer's magical technology involved machines and tools designed to manipulate "tonal architecture" or the sounds and vibrations created by the "Earth Bones." In effect, they completely bypassed "normal" magic (which involves using the magicka that flows into the world through the sun and the stars) and instead [[RealityWarper hijacked the fundamental laws of the world and used them for their own ends]].

* In-game example in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': If you use [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um shouts]] within the view of a hold's guards, they'll get on your case and tell you to stop that "... shouting thing". If you take the "Make me" route in the dialog, they say there isn't any rule really, and then cut off with "I'm watching you..."

** The Bosmer ([[OurElvesAreDifferent Wood Elves]]) are bound to the Green Pact, a deal they made with the patron deity of their forest homeland. The Bosmer use a range of options for getting around the restrictions of the Green Pact. For example, the Green Pact says that one cannot harm living plants, and cannot eat food made from plants. However, some Bosmer eat raw fruit that has fallen from trees and they are able to eat mushrooms, which do not count as plants. It's also acceptable to eat insects, honey, and dairy products. Additionally, while they may not harm the plant-life of Valenwood, certain outsiders are allowed to, and the Bosmer have been known to purchase lumber from outsiders who cut the trees. They are also known to import wood from other regions into Valenwood when necessary.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' punishes people who leave a duty with a party by giving the deserter a 30 minute lockout from all duties. Being kicked out via voting from other players doesn't count. Ergo, people who want to leave a duty without incurring a penalty will ask other players to kick them out instead. This issue tends to be an issue of itself since some think it's wrong to evade a penalty and that voting someone out wastes their 4 hour cooldown to vote again when they could have used it on someone like a troll. Others feel that there's no harm in voting someone out that doesn't want to stay and that "holding someone hostage" by not voting is bad.

* In ''VideoGame/MarioSportsMix'''s dodgeball, you can't hold the ball while you're in rival territory [[note]]you drop it automatically if you do[[/note]]. Specifically, while you're ''touching it''. What you ''can'' do, however, is grab the ball in mid-air and throw it before landing again. This strategy was actually used by advanced players in the online metagame.
