* Kill Screen’s review of ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' probably stands as the most extreme example of this; [[http://killscreendaily.com/articles/reviews/review-duke-nukem-forever not only did the reviewer refuse to give a score, the entire site decided not to give out scores]] ''ever again''.

* [[AngryJoe Angry Joe's]] review of CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare is both this and still within bounds. He wishes he could give the game KevinSpacey out of 10 before lamenting that that isn't a score on his scale and just giving it a [[SoOkayItsAverage 6/10]]

* On the positive end, Meltzer first broke the rating scale for a June 3rd 1994 match at Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling, which had been shooting 5 out regularly during the decade, between Wrestling/MitsuharuMisawa and Toshiaki Kawada, which got 6 stars to symbolize he thought it might have been the greatest pro wrestling match of all time. Another match wouldn't get such a rating from Meltzer until ''The Wrestle Kingdom 11'' main event between Wrestling/KennyOmega and then-reigning [[Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling IWGP]] Heavyweight champion Wrestling/KazuchikaOkada. Meltzer then later stated that the second match between Omega and Okada at ''Dominion 6.11'' was better than the first, giving it 6.25 stars.

* [[WebVideo/TheNeedleDrop Anthony Fantano]] typically rates albums and mixtapes on a 10 point scale - but if he ''really'' doesn't like an album, he refuses to assign it a number at all, and simply calls it ''NOT GOOD''.

* ''[[WebAnimation/{{Spill}} Double Toasted's]]'' rating system mostly corresponds to a five-star scale: "BetterThanSex", "Full Price", "Matinee", "Rental" and "Some Ol' Bullshit". Then there's "Fuck You" - reserved for the worst of the worst or a movie that pushed one of the hosts' {{Berserk Button}}s.

* Pascal Wyse's [[https://www.theguardian.com/music/2004/oct/01/popandrock.shopping1 review]] of Creator/WilliamShatner's 2004 spoken-word album ''Has Been'' in ''[[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers The Guardian]]'', in which he eschewed the paper's normal 1- to 5-star scale, instead calling it "[[JustForPun beyond the star system]]".
-->This CD is beyond good or bad. It is from a world where concepts such as "unique" and "indispensible" [''sic''] live happily alongside "hilariously, brain-tearingly wrong".
