*** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]] has the upgraded Fire Rod. Deals as much damage as the Master Sword? Check. Can hit enemies multiple times? Check. The pillar of fire can travel up and down stairs and even be thrown at targets lower than you? Check. Big area of effect and travels a whole screen's length, and will keep hugging a wall if it hits it at an angle? Check. Easy on the magic meter? Check. Available before you enter [[DifficultySpike Lorule]] for a modest amount of Rupees and a few Maiamais? '''Checked to hell and back'''.

** The Black Knight of ''[[Videogame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]'' counts as a living Disc One Nuke. He's only playable for two chapters in the first part of the game, and he's PurposefullyOverpowered as can be. He's got strength high enough to OneHitKill all enemies on the map, as well as defense high enough to NoSell ''all'' of their attacks, to say nothing of his LimitBreak, Eclipse, that multiplies his already impressive strength by 5 and then ''negates'' enemy defense, ensuring that anything that gets hit by it is DeaderThanDead. One of the chapters he's playable in is the final chapter of the first part, making it all the more literal.

** You can pull the exact same stunt in ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem 7]], but thanks to a GoodBadBug involving Ninian, you can also have your character possess a godly defense boost virtually assuring they will never actually die in the arena. By only taking bets in the 700-730 gold area (Anything less is practically a waste of a turn, and anything more is pretty dangerous) you can easily level every single character to 20 (Even healers) if you care enough to spend all your time on it (Not only that, but you'll end up with far more money than you put in, especially considering that using the arenas doesn't use up weaponry and equips you with their weaponry.) The only exception being axe users, which are vastly unreliable against swords (The arenas almost always pit you against the type you're good at and it's essentially ElementalRockPaperScissors with swords and lances, and quite literally with magic, with the loser not being as likely to hit.) in that they won't have a good enough hit to do damage and will often get double attacked due to high speed sword users. Not only that but it's a recurring situation; there's arenas in levels 16x and 23 in ''[=FE7=]'', 5 and 12 in ''[=FE8=]'', etc.

** Joshua can also be leveled up in the arena fairly easily. However, the usefulness of this is tempered by the fact that you have no class-changing items at this time and won't be getting a Hero Crest until Chapter 9. Of course, you're about to get a Guiding Ring, and sending Seth and Joshua into the arena so many times is bound to provide plenty of healing opportunities...and you can certainly afford to continually restock your healers with more staves...yeah, that's right, you can have a Bishop by the start of Chapter 6. As in, the class that absolutely ''destroys'' all of the monster enemies. This is totally broken.

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Fire Emblem 8]]'' there is a colosseum in the fifth stage. If you have Seth with you when you enter the stage have him go there. Its risky, as the opponents range from weak to insanely powerful, but played right you can grind the CrutchCharacter up to a ridiculous degree and reap a whole lot of cash in one go.

* In ''VideoGame/DOTA2'', you can defeat Roshan at the first 20 minutes at the game as Ursa, once you get Vladimir's Offering because Ursa has an ability called Fury Swipes, which makes the enemy suffer more damage from you the more you hit it (And as such, you will recover health even more). Heck, you can get on ''level 1 if you have a friend with you and ask him to pick Wraith King.'' That is because of Wraith King's Vampiric Aura, which gives Ursa and himself a lifesteal attack. As such, you can give your entire team 200 gold and yourself an extra life at the start of the game. The game even acknowledges that, as Fury Swipes has a timer of 15 seconds to fade away on an enemy if Ursa doesn't hit it. Only in Roshan the timer is 6 seconds. And whenever you pick Vladimir's Offering, Ursa will actually say a voice line regarding of killing Roshan.

: Ursa can pull this off in the original ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' as well. Other notable heroes include Huskarr, Lycan, Syllabear, Troll Warlord, and Enigma.

: ** Do note that since this tactic is widely known by players, attempting to do this will cause them to ward the Roshan pit and periodically check up on the pit to make sure that Ursa can pull this off in the original ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' as well. Other notable heroes include Huskarr, Lycan, Syllabear, Troll Warlord, and Enigma.isn't trying to solo Roshan alone.

* In ''VideoGame/FarCry3'', you are able to obtain a powerful modified MKG machinegun called the Ripper at the start of the game by completing six Trials of Rakyat. Though many trials will be outside of your visible map range, you can simply avoid any enemies or outposts you come across. With this weapon you can mow down foes with relative ease, at a much faster pace than your weak starting pistol.
