*** Also, the Lost Maimai quest, which is basically the game's equivalent of the Golden Skulltula quest from ''Ocarina of Time,'' gives you a map so you can know exactly how many of the little shits are in each area. One hundred percenting the game without resorting to a guide suddenly became much less impossible. This mechanic was recycled for Jovani's quest in ''Twilight Princess HD.''

Anti-Frustration Features are instances in a game where the established rules of the game are suspended/modified under certain circumstances, or a particular effect that happens when the game deliberately helps you out during a specific situation.

Anti-Frustration Features (sometimes called "Quality of Life" features for obvious reasons) are instances in a game where the established rules of the game are suspended/modified under certain circumstances, or a particular effect that happens when the game deliberately helps you out during a specific situation.

** A very welcome host of these features are in the dungeons groups made with the Duty Finder. Not only does the game offer bonus experience upon completion if it is completed quickly with someone that's new to that dungeon in the group (thereby forcing the other players to not only keep that newbie, but to also aid the new player to understand the encounters, since that bonus applies for everyone in the group), but kicking someone out of the group out of spite is punishable via the terms of service. The latter is a known problem in some other MMOs where simple everyday screw ups results in being instakicked before they can even blink, and FF14 seems to be the first MMO to actively address these kinds of "dismissals", especially in this manner. In short, you need to have a really good reason for kicking a member from your groups, and the rule is a VERY welcome addition to those that have experienced the kick happy PUG groups in other MMOs.

*** In the case of many Jumping Puzzles, having a Mesmer there (or being one yourself) might be considered this due to their portal ability, allowing people to completely skip everything as long as the Mesmer is able to complete it...AND IT STILL COUNTS!

** The first hero released post-launch, Ana, has three phrases. When she uses her Nano-Boost, her team hears, "Nano-Boost administered." The teammate she uses it on hears, "You're powered up. Get in there!" And her opponents hear an Arabic phrase, "وريهم قوتك" (Wareehom Ew-wetak), which means "Show them your strength."

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'': When players use their Ultimate Abilities, each team hears something different. This allows each team to know instantly if they should run for cover or take advantage of the moment to push forward. For example:
** When Pharah uses her Barrage ability, the opposing team hears her iconic, "Justice rains from above!" Her allies hear, "Rocket barrage incoming!"
** When Mercy uses her Resurrection ability, her team hears, "Heroes never die!" Her opponents hear "Helden sterben nicht," which is just the German translation of her iconic phrase.
** D.Va calls out "Nerf this!" when she sets her mech to blow. Her teammates hear, "Activating self-destruct sequence."
** When Hanzo uses his Dragonstrike, his opponents hear the iconic, "Ryuu ga waga teki wo kurau!" while his teammates hear the rough English translation of "Let the dragon consume you!"

* ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' and its ''Burial at Sea'' [=DLC=] always play a short violin {{Stinger}} when you've cleared an area of enemies. Given the sheer size and scope of some of the areas the fighting takes place in, this is very helpful. Also, ''Infinite'' doesn't count falling off of its floating city setting as a death; you're simply instantly teleported to someplace close to where you fell.

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', clubs provide functions that make an aspect of the game easier whilst your a member. This is balanced out by the fact that you can only join one club at a time, and you cannot rejoin a club if you leave for any reason, voluntarily or otherwise.
** The Martial Arts Club gives Yandere-chan an advantage in physical confrontations.
** The Cooking Club lets Yandere-chan bake treats for her classmates, letting her easily build up her reputation. She can also wield a knife without drawing suspicion.
** The Drama Club has gloves and masks. Gloves can be used to keep your fingerprints off of murder weapons (particularly useful for framing classmates) and masks let you commit murder without anyone realizing it's you and thus losing reputation (but only one time: masks will be banned from school thereafter).
** The Occult Club decreases Yandere-chan's rate of SanitySlippage when committing murder. Students also take longer to notice if she's acting suspicious, since they assume everyone in the club is weird.
** The Light Music Club has a cello case which Yandere-chan can use to carry larger weapons or dismembered corpses.
** The Photography Club lets Yandere-chan take pictures of classmates without being viewed with suspicion. She can also act like a mole within the club if they go sleuthing when [[DynamicDifficulty School Atmosphere]] drops low, since they would never suspect one of their own.
** The Art Club lets Yandere-chan walk around covered in blood without drawing suspicion as long as she wears a smock, pretending she's only covered in red paint.
** The Science Club has a homemade roomba robot that can help in cleaning up puddles of blood.
** The Sports Club increases Yandere-chan's movement speed and lets her carry a bat without attracting suspicion.
** The Gardening Club has access to a shovel that can be used as a weapon.
** The Gaming Club lets Yandere-chan boost a single stat for the day. The stat boost depends on the game she plays; fighting games make her better able to win fights, racing games let her run faster, and horror games decrease SanitySlippage, to name a few examples.
