* WebVideo/{{ProJared}} usually gives his games scores like ''VideoGame/Hydlide''/10, Toby/10, or a Space Suit/10. Although, he does end up making a legitimate analogy between the game and whatever he gives that game.

* In his step-by-step reviews of every single pokemon, {{Bogleech}} typically reviews each pokemon on a scale of 'one to five pokeballs'. Some pokemon, however, such as Gloom or Paras among others, receive a rating of ' five ''gold'' pokeballs', while Gallade and Lucario earn a rating of 'rotting, rancid Lucario skull' out of five.

* [[http://www.savingcountrymusic.com/song-video-review-forever-country/ This]] review of the MassiveMultiplayerCrossover single "Forever Country", gives an N/A out of N/A rating because "Boiled down, 'Forever Country' is just an infomercial for the upcoming 50th Annual CMA Awards. The Country Music Association co-opted cheap or free celebrity talent for the project, and then put a silly video together."

* In the ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' episode "Emancipation", a new teacher creates a ranking system for Malcolm's class, forcing the students to compete against each other for the #1 slot. Malcolm at first rebels and ends up in the #12 position, but then he decides to be so good that he breaks the system. His name climbs up the ranks until he's doing so well the teacher is forced to place his name ''on the wall several spaces above the #1 spot'' (which would appear to make this an example of "Out of Bounds", but he is still technically #1).

* Thrash metal band Flotsam And Jetsam’s debut album ''Doomsday for the Deceiver'' [[http://www.allmetallica.com/info/interviews/kerrang86.php got 6 Ks out of a possible 5]] from Kerrang! magazine. Kind of a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for a relatively obscure band, considering no other album in the magazine’s history has ever received the honour.

* The ''Angry Video Game Nerd'' claimed ''VideoGame/CrazyBus'', a game with no enemies, no obstacles, only one screen, awful graphics for a Sega Genesis game, an atrocious soundtrack, and no goal or purpose whatsoever other than driving the bus forward and backward by holding the D-Pad left or right for eternity broke the 'shit scale' and somehow managed to outclass in awfulness the two other games he had reviewed that he originally claimed were the worst games ever made, "[[VideoGame/PennAndTellersSmokeAndMirrors Desert Bus]]" and ''VideoGame/BigRigsOverTheRoadRacing''.

* '''Still Within Bounds (but pushing it):''' This is {{discussed|Trope}}—which is to say, the reviewer openly admits to being tempted to go outside the established bounds of the rating system, but [[AvertedTrope ultimately s/he adheres to the rating scale]];

* When ''WebVideo/BroTeamPill'' reviews a game, its rating ''always'' nonsensical. ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R. 2]]'' got a "I would rate this game". ''Garshasp'' got a "Cool out of yes". ''Videogame/Battlefield3'''s review concluded with him reviewing the review video, claiming it's better than his ''FEAR'' review.
* Whenever ''WebVideo/ProJared'' does a review for an older game, he'll give it something like "a bucket of tears out of ten". This is to be more comprehensive than a simple score so he has good reason (as he'll always use it in a metaphorical way to express how he's feeling about the game, such as giving ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' "a clock without hands out of ten", or "timeless"). When he reviews a current game he'll use a regular numerical rating. He also straddles the line with Meaningless Value as, in at least one case, he awarded a game a "F*** you out of 10" because it aggravated him so much (though he still stuck to his nominal metaphor-based assessment as well).
* ''WebVideo/TheTourettesGuy'' tried out a mattress at Sears, and only gave the comment "Wrestling/TripleH would shit his pants."
