* The Sega Genesis game ''VideoGame/{{Skitchin}}'' has the code [[BadAss B, A, Down, A, Start, Start]], which unlocks the ability to put in secret passwords. 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).

Added DiffLines:

**There was also a level select code that you could input with the controller, but it was...slightly difficult to pull off: up, down, A, A, B, left, right, A, B, up, A, down, right, right, left, B, up, left, A, right, B, left, right, A, left, up, A, down, A, right, left, B, and finally Start, ''all needing to be entered at the title screen, before the game demo started.''

* In the ''HomeAlone'' PC game, you can press Insert, F1, F2, F3 to make Kevin fly. While using that, if you go to the top left or top right corners of the screen, you can end up ''warping to a different room''.

** ''Metroid''s loose password system produces some interesting combinations, such as "[[Anime/DragonBallZ DRAGON BALL Z Dragon Ball z]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3UyVylP7AI ENGAGE RIDLEY MOTHER FUCKER]]."

** Interestingly enough, typing in "[[Anime/DragonBallZ DRAGON BALL Z Dragon Ball z]]" will make Samus spawn suitless in Norfair with 172 missiles, 5 Energy Tanks with only 30 units of energy, Screw Attack, High Jump Boots, Morphball and Bombs, and the Ice Beam along with the Long Beam. The gateway to Tourian is also open, alleviating the need to defeat Kraid or Ridley. The background music will also stop playing after Samus leaves Norfair, unless she gets a Power-up. Also the Varia Suit will not be on its respective statue, neither Samus will have it in her arsenal. Considering how popular ''Dragon Ball Z'' is in Japan, it's likely that one of the developers threw it in as a ShoutOut.
** A coincidental password remained elusive for years until someone tried it out of sheer curiosity. The password was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3UyVylP7AI ENGAGE RIDLEY MOTHER FUCKER]]. It gives Samus the same suit as the Justin Bailey code, but the graphics became corrupted and the screen was locked in place, preventing you from moving ahead. In more recent ports it even crashes the game entirely, and become infamous for flat out '''''DESTROYING''''' ''UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS''s when it's used on a 3DS.

A CheatCode is a sequence of commands which turns on an undocumented, advantageous feature within a game. These are typically backdoors inserted during programming to facilitate testing by the designers. Since cartridge-based games used fixed memory locations, removing these backdoors after development was problematic (since their removal could lead to new unexpected bugs), so they were often left in for released versions.

Even after cartridges were replaced by [=CD-ROMs=] as the main video gaming medium, cheat codes remained popular.

Where cheat systems had access to full alphabetical input, the codes were often based on {{Development Gag}}s or pop-culture {{Shout Out}}s. To deter video game magazines from publishing the codes in cheat sections, some British computer games used cheat codes containing profanities.



* ''VideoGame/{{Carmageddon}}'' has the family unfriendly [[spoiler:IBETYOUCANTPRINTCUNT]] code, which enables Cheat Mode and also gives the player debug access. This is more likely a challenge to magazines that printed codes in cheat sections and knowing that very VERY few magazines would post a cheat with that in it.
