* In the tank-based ''[[VideoGame/SeekAndDestroy2002 Seek And Destroy]]'' [[BritsWithBattleShips The Challenger]] is unlockable in the third town. It just happens to be one of the best armored tanks in the game second only to the [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Maus]] (unlocked at the endgame), and has a large amount of carry weight meaning that it can be upgraded with sufficient weaponry and armor to make the game something of a cakewalk...

** In ''Videogame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', if you have [[OldSaveBonus save data of the previous games]], you start off with a unique Jakobs pistol and a Hyperion shotgun that are likely to be better weapons than the ones you start off with and can probably carry you for quite a while. In the case of DLC character Aurelia, being a wealthy Baroness means that she starts off with Purple-quality weapons and a large chunk of money that lets her get anything she wants from Vending Machines.
** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', at least the original, non-Players' Choice version, allows you to cheat the system and get the Space Jump Boots right as you land on Tallon IV. As a result, you can skip every single boss in the initial run of the Chozo Ruins except for the Incinerator Drone. It also allows skilled players to skip right through the Magmoor Caverns without the Varia Suit, a feat considered impossible otherwise. Basically, once you land on Tallon IV, you can snag the [=SJBs=], speedily grab the weapons and Energy Tanks, and be in the Magmoor Caverns faster than you can say "Metroid".
* ''VideoGame/{{Metroid Prime 2 Echoes}}'' gives you the "taste of power" variety of disc one nuke, except normally it's stripped away from you when you go to the dark world for the first time. Using a glitch called Infinite Speed and a bit of Secret World trekking, you can skip losing your powerups entirely. Beware, triggering the cutscene where you lose your powerups after actually collecting an item causes you to lose everything you've collected to that point ''permanently''.

* The Ranger Pack DLC in ''{{VideoGame/Metro 2033}}'', along with the Season Pass in ''VideoGame/MetroLastLight'', can make their respective games quite easy by giving the player access to ridiculously powerful weapons early in the game. The Ranger Pack bestows the Volt Driver, which can kill virtually anything short of a [[DemonicSpiders Librarian]] in one or two hits, as early as the second mission of 2033's Chapter 2, while both it and Last Light's Season Pass give the option to purchase the [[MoreDakka Heavy Automatic Shotgun]]. As the pages for both games state, "nothing that can be killed survives the entire belt".

** By abusing an exploit in the training rooms in the tutorial level, you can start the game proper with- among other things- a Laser Pistol in perfect condition, maintenance tools, an assortment of healing items, a Standard Pistol, and a PsiAmp. The weapons in perfect condition are the biggest boon, since it takes a while to fully upgrade the maintenance stat.

* VideoGame/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirlOnline does this intentionally by giving you Miia as your very first character. She's significantly weaker than other characters of similar rarity, but she's strong enough to carry you through most of the early game maps until you get stronger characters from the gacha.

* In ''VideoGame/GranTurismo 4'', you can import cash from your ''GT3'' save, up to 100,000 credits. With that sort of cash, you can buy a car that will storm all of the opening races without breaking a sweat. Or, you could get a decent car, work the licenses to an A grade, win the first rally and with a Cien, which will storm most races it can enter. [[RuleOfThree Or]], you could win the ''second'' rally and sell the car you win for a cool 250,000. Winning either of these rallies is easier than it sounds, as they are on tarmac and thus do not require dirt tires, an expensive option which shuts out most starters.

Added DiffLines:

* The hidden [[EasterEgg HAL Rooms]] in ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' titles often contain Copy Essences for abilities that either can't be gotten until the late game (such as Fighter and Wing) or are exclusively gotten from mid-bosses (Hammer being the only one). While their power depends on the user, being able to get them early on is very nice.
** ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' allows you to get the [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Smash Bros.]] ability in secret rooms hidden throughout the game, one of which is located in the fourth stage of the first world. Smash Bros. is an absurdly versatile and powerful ability, and it can't be gotten anywhere else, barring the ability testing area (which only opens up after beating the final boss). Additionally, [[BribingYourWayToVictory buying]] certain Toys/{{amiibo}} allows you to gain specific abilities at will; this includes the aforementioned Smash Bros. (''Super Smash Bros.''-line Kirby) and the famous GameBreaker of U.F.O. (''Kirby''-line Kirby), which isn't obtainable in-game ''period'' [[spoiler:until you beat the game 100%]].

*** Jewel Knuckles. You're supposed to not get them until you've got the mist form, but there's a secret lift that appears if you wait a while in the room above it, allowing you to get them earlier. They have little range, but are quite strong. Mastering the Holy Water early on also counts as this - the sooner you figure out how you can own bosses in seconds with it, the better. Figuring out the button combinations of certain spells too - these spells are good throughout the entire game, if you can get used to the control scheme and have some MP left.

* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'':
** Gearbox's SH!FT service (which is an in-game code entry system) allows the players to enter codes to get additional skins and Golden Keys. [[http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/SHiFT Currently]], one can get ''130'' Golden Keys just by entering Golden Key Codes into the system, which usually aren't immensely powerful, but always allow the player to have a gun that's much more powerful than their current level.

* ''VideoGame/{{Elite}} Plus'' introduces the ability to buy different ships, but in most versions your starting Cobra Mk 3 -despite being [[WithThisHerring woefully badly-armed]]- is a mid-tier model and quite valuable. Trading it in for a smaller and theoretically less capable craft nets you a significant amount of cash to spend on various useful upgrades. Other games in the series toned this down heavily, for better or worse, but ''{{Oolite}}'' reproduces it faithfully.
