* Thanks to the incredibly open-ended gameplay structure of the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' games, you can complete many sidequests, and in doing so, acquire extremely high-powered weapons and accumulate hundreds of thousands of dollars ? all before even accessing the game's opening tutorial missions.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
*** Birthright gives you Reina and Takumi. Reina is a prepromote, and despite being outclassed will be able to really wreak havoc on the map she joins. Takumi has the Fuujin Yumi - considered to be a total GameBreaker. He also joins on a map where bows are useful, and unlike a lot of examples of this trope remains useful until endgame.
*** Camilla in Conquest is this. She joins prepromoted, gets some good growths and a nice skill set for the time of the game she joins in.
*** You yourself become one in ''Revelation'' - as the only one capable of fighting enemies for a couple maps, the avatar will end up rather overleveled by chapter 8 and 9. If that isn't enough, Takumi is another early joiner, but his joining point is ''even earlier'' than it was in Birthright!

* If you keep going through the first level of ''[[VideoGame/ScottPilgrim Scott Pilgrim Vs The World]]'', you'll eventually have enough money to buy tonnes of upgrades from the shops in the first level. In particular though, if you stockpile the money to a ridiculous amount (just over $500, a lot in a game where most enemies have at most $1.50 on them), you can go to the video store, pay off Scott's late fees, and unlock some fantastic stat boosts for just $4.95 each. Once you've done this, you can easily unlock all the combat moves that make the game easier, not to mention enhance your stats to be able to one-hit kill most enemies, and even the first boss.
** There's also a hidden shop on level one that has some items that give ungodly boosts to your stats without having to pay 500 bucks first. There's also a secret passage that you can reach that is filled with flying piggy banks that you can break for cash. Combined, you can attain high levels with ease. Of course, the shop's location is revealed in one of the trailers that promoted the game, so anyone who was watching the game before it came out would know exactly where it was. [[spoiler: Look for stars.]]

Once you've done this, you can easily unlock pretty broken things: they sell extra lives, 1,500 XP, and +10 to all the combat moves that make the game easier, not to mention enhance 4 of your stats to be able to one-hit kill most enemies, and even the first boss.
for only $4.95 each!

** There's a cheat that lets you commit suicide and spawn $50 at your death. However, if you have a snack with you, you won't lose a life because the snack will AutoRevive you. Since you can buy snacks once you get halfway through the first stage and reach the shopping district, you can break the game almost immediately by buying the cheapest snack with the money you no doubt have accumulated over the course of the first half of the level, and since you get roughly $50 at your death, you'll definitely have the funds to buy another snack and repeat the process to get the money necessary to abuse both of the aforementioned shops.
** There's a cheat that gives you [[spoiler:The Power of Love (the sword with a heart handle that you find near the end of the game)]] at the start of every level. If you use the infinite money to get to a high-enough level that you can use the Grand Slam move (swinging any held item 3 times in succession) and level up your strength (allowing you to swing held items faster), you can then steamroll through the game.

* Having difficulty even in the first stage of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots''? Want to be able to afford every gun in the game? Well in the first level, there's an area where a group of militants are facing some mercs and a Stryker. Hidden in the area is a sniper who will pick off the militants who are exposed to him. So look for the militant carrying an rpg and then run into him. He'll get angry and stand up to yell at Snake. This exposes him to the sniper, who kills him and then you can pick up his weapon which is worth $6000. Since the militants respawn, you can easily accumulate enough money to buy everything that Drebin can sell you (including all his rocket launchers and the .50 sniper rifle in the next Act).

* All the various ''VideoGame/{{Lego Adaptation Game}}s'' all have several unlockable characters that can be accessed by entering a cheat into the extra menu (some also have cheats to unlock red bricks). Usually at least a couple of these characters will have abilities you aren't supposed to access until ''much'' later, allowing you to access secrets in the Hub World and Free Play modes earlier than intended. The Laser Swat (lets you break gold bricks much earlier) from ''Film/TheLegoMovie'' and [=InGen=] Hunter 1 (has the shoot and grapple abilities) from ''Film/JurassicWorld'' are even borderline {{Game Breaker}}s for what they give you access to and are both unlockable via a cheat code.

* ''[[VideoGame/LegoAdaptationGame LEGO Star Wars]]'', due to a [[GoodBadBug programming oversight]], by default made any custom character with a red lightsaber a sith. Sith characters are the only ones able to interact with black LEGO bricks, and normally you aren't supposed to have access to such a character until you beat ''Episode One'' and unlock Darth Maul. However you're free to make a custom jedi with a red lightsaber and be able to move black LEGO before you even beat the first stage, giving you access to several red bricks (cheats) much earlier in the game.

*** Alucard's spells are this as well. Normally you're supposed to wait until you purchase the button commands from the Master Librarian to use them, but if you just happen to know the button command (or look up a walkthrough online) you can cast it and have it added to your menu right at the beginning of the game. Soul Steal (recovers HP as you attack enemies) [[GameBreaker breaks the first half of the game wide-open.]]

*** The armored Kuruma in GTA Online is a vehicle form of this trope. Unlocked during the very first heist mission string, it features armor plated body panels and windows that offer near-total protection from bullets, making nearly every mission vastly easier to complete because players can simply turtle inside the vehicle while shooting out of its window slits. While the $525,000 price age is hefty, players who preordered the game and received a huge bonus cash grant were able to immediately afford it and a cheap safehouse to put it in.
