* Most first-person shooter games whose game engines can have their origins traced all the way back to ''VideoGame/QuakeI'' (such as games developed by Creator/ValveSoftware) tend to share a lot of cheat codes for their developer consoles. Some shared cheat codes are:
** [[GodMode "god"]], which gives the player invulnerability.
** "noclip", which lets the player move through walls and enemies, and lets them ignore water.
** "notarget", which [[{{Invisibility}} prevents enemies from noticing the player]]. Interestingly, in ''Quake'' itself, it only worked as long as the player didn't attack them, similarly to the Ring of Shadows powerup.
** "impulse <number>", a debug command that triggers the action that is identified by the chosen number - for example, "impulse 2" in ''Quake'' makes the Shotgun the active weapon while "impulse 255" activates a QuadDamage. However, all ''Quake''-derived games have an "impulse" that gives the player all weapons and maximum ammo. In ''Quake'', it's "impulse 9" (which also gives the player both the Silver and Gold Key, but they are lost upon changing levels. It's also the only way to use the Thunderbolt in the demo), while in ''Half-Life''-derived games it's "impulse 101".

* In ''[=SimCity=] 3000'', "[[MyCousinVinny Call cousin Vinnie]]" causes a shady-looking character to offer a large sum of money, though this works only once per game. If you reject it, a cop congratulates you for passing a SecretTestOfCharacter and gives you another code to build a castle.

* ''MazeOfGalious'' had one that was more of a secret move than a cheat code: if you had the Dagger, typing "UMBRELLA" on the keyboard would kill all the GoddamnedBats on screen. There was also "ZEUS", which let you continue after a GameOver.

* The Amiga game ''Body Blows Galactic'', to activate the cheat mode, required you to pull the player 2 joystick simultaneously right and left. This being obviously mechanically impossible, required actually dismantling the joystick and holding the "right" and "left" microswitches depressed simultaneously.

* ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresIII'', set in TheColonialPeriod, has "[[WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad Sooo Good]]" which shows kill messages like "Musketeer'd!", "tuck tuck tuck" which gives you a highly invincible monster truck (or "Tommynator", if you will) that rolls over enemy units and buildings, and "Where's that axe?" which unleashes a giant UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington bust on your enemies (going by the name of "George Crushington" and [[IncendiaryExponent breathing fire]]).

* ''Gleylancer'' for Mega Drive had a cheat code that spelled out a phrase on the controller...''in Japanese''! And it's an entirely appropriate phrase, at that: "BACA DACARA BURUBURU DA" ("I'm trembling because I'm stupid").

These include starting on later levels (PIZZA to start on Chicago, for example), changing your character's head (MOHAWK to get... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you can guess]]), and getting items to use during races (THRASH for the most powerful weapons).
