** Actually, the bare minimum items it is possible to complete Ocarina of Time with is just ''three'': the bottle, either the Deku Shield or the Megaton Hammer, and either the Deku Stick or the Kokiri Sword. It involves some intense use of glitches, but it is possible.

** Actually, the bare minimum items it is possible to complete Ocarina of Time with is just ''three'': the bottle, bottle (to do a glitched warp to the final Ganon fight), either the Deku Shield or the Megaton Hammer, Hammer (the hammer allows you to skip the "2-3-1" room at the bottom of the Deku Tree, which is currently the only needed use of the shield in-game), and either the Deku Stick or the Kokiri Sword. Sword (the stick can be used to skip Mido, who requires you to get the sword and shield before he lets you on the path to the Deku Tree). It involves some intense use of glitches, but it is possible.possible.
** If you happen to get ''really'' lucky with cartridge-tilting mechanics, it's theoretically possible to skip the Deku Shield/Megaton Hammer as well, going in with only a bottle, a Deku Stick, and your wits.

** The FinalFantasyV Four Job Fiesta with the team Monk, Berserker, Beastmaster and Dancer in Natural mode. Natural rules out any swapping abilities between jobs (while having Bartz as the Wind Crystal job, Lenna as the Water Crystal job, Faris as the Fire Crystal job and Galuf/Krile as the Earth Crystal job). The only successful run with this team was a normal Fiesta run, but it had to use 3 [[GameBreaker Breath Wings]] (and most of their Magic Lamp charges) to beat it. So far, this team is impossible in Natural.

** This is even harder then it sounds, because the game is supposed to be realistic, i.e. impossible for anyone outside of Europe or China to win.

* Many, many players of {{Rhythm Game}}s, particularly the Bemani franchise. There's ''GuitarHero'' and ''RockBand'' players getting full combos, ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'' and ''VideoGame/PopNMusic'' players going for perfect scores, and ''BeatmaniaIIDX'' players getting AAA's (which are ''not'' perfect scores, as perfection is impossible on any song that isn't a total cakewalk due to the strict timing judgments).

* ''GodHand'' (already a NintendoHard game) has a "Jukebox" that the player can use to listen to the game's [[AwesomeMusic soundtrack]]. The soundtrack is split into four sections, each requiring a "CD" to unlock another section. Sounds normal enough? You get the first CD by simply beating the game on normal - and that's the easiest challenge. The second CD is [[FakeDifficulty fake difficulty played in spades.]] The third CD requires you to finish the '''entire''' game from Stage 1-2 without unleashing God Hand or using any Roulette moves '''once''', which are pretty much the only ways to beat any EliteMooks, let alone ''bosses''. And the fourth CD? Beat the game on ''hard mode''. Also bear in mind that these aren't even [[SelfImposedChallenge self-imposed]].

** [[VideoGame/DarkSouls2 The sequel]] ups the ante even further with the Covenant of Champions, the sole purpose of which is to make the game [[HarderThanHard even harder]]. There's even [[BraggingRightsReward rewards]] for beating the game without using [[CheckPointStarvation Bonfires]], and no-death runs.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' has The Oath of the Vidmaster: "I pledge to punch all switches[[labelnote:*]]as opposed to shooting them from a distance[[/labelnote]], [[StuffBlowingUp to never shoot where I could use grenades]], to admit the existence of no level except [[HarderThanHard Total Carnage]], to never use Caps Lock as my "run" key, and to never, ever, leave a single [[NonPlayerCharacter Bob]] alive." All this equates to playing the game in as difficult a manner as possible, including deliberately pissing off friendly forces just to have more enemies against you. Eventually acknowledged by Creator/{{Bungie}}, who created "The Vidmaster's Challenge" as an optional BrutalBonusLevel set in ''Marathon Infinity''.

* The documentary ''TheKingOfKong'' is about this trope applied to the classic arcade game ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' and two gamers desire to get the international high score.
** The record is now held by someone who was inspired to go for the record after having seen ''TheKingOfKong''. Also, if you thought ''TheKingOfKong'' made those guys look insane, check out ''ChasingGhosts'' which makes Billy Mitchell look almost normal by comparison. Highlights include ToddRodgers talking about how he's glad his wife died, two Berzerk players having a reunion after not having spoken in 20 years after one beat the other's score and bragged about it, and much more on Mr. Awesome RoyShildt.
