* ''NiNoKuni'' has the Trial of Friendship, a rare ''mandatory'' example of a Double Play challenge during a game's plotline. You control both Oliver and Esther (one with the left stick, one with the right) in a top-down maze of falling playforms over a pit. If either one of you falls, you have to start again. You're also under time pressure. If you don't think that's crazy enough, sometimes the characters' paths ''criss-cross''. [[DamnYouMuscleMemory Good luck remembering which stick goes to who when that happens.]] Later on the challenge becomes an optional minigame at the Casino.

* While there's no official mode for it, the loading screens in ''VideoGame/RockBand'' suggest playing an instrument while doing vocals, and the vocal harmony feature introduced in ''Music/TheBeatles: VideoGame/RockBand'' outright encourages as many players as possible to multitask at the same time.
** Performing bass and vocals simultaneously is generally referred to as [[{{Rush}} "Geddying"]] [[FanNickname in the fandom.]] Of course, now that a keyboard peripheral has been introduced, it's possible this term could be expanded to players who do [[UpToEleven bass, vocals, AND keyboard at the same time.]]

** ''VideoGame/AudioSurf'' has the Double Vision (not to be confused with one of the [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd AVGN's]] 2-Part episode). It comes in three flavors: Casual, Pro, and Elite, which are Easy, Normal, and Hard, respectively. It was even intentional to be either Two Players or DoublePlay, as it says on the description: ''There are two cars to control. '''Play by yourself''' or with a partner.''

* It is actually possible to double-play a co-op race in VideoGame/MarioKart Double Dash, due to the game having two people in carts rather than one; the process involves holding the driver's controller on top of the rear guy's and playing as if it is one huge, complex controller. While the nature of this setup makes getting mini-turbos and aiming items much more difficult; having the ability to punch rivals - spinning them out AND stealing their items, the ability to nudge yourself using said punch to avoid hazards, and a stronger starting boost when both controllers are timed correctly practically makes up for it.

** Pictured above is an ''Ikaruga'' player doing a double-play run. What makes that one especially notable is that he does a no death, S++ rank game all the way up to partway through the ''final boss''. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZEGyrEnXrk here]].

* In ''Bub & Bob'', a UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh clone of ''VideoGame/BubbleBobble'', the level layouts are the same but the gameplay is slightly different. One consequence is that on Level 99 (the last true level; Level 100 is a boss fight) the two halves are completely separated, so you ''must'' use both players. However, since you can call the other player into existence at any time, it's easy for a solo player to DoublePlay this level without having to DoublePlay the entire game.

* Most of the Bemani series as well as some other {{Rhythm Game}}s, though the double-play modes present in most of the games offer specialized charts. Examples include ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', ''BeatmaniaIIDX'', and ''VideoGame/InTheGroove''.
** ''BeatmaniaIIDX'' allows you to play Double Battle mode, in which you can play the same single-player chart ''on both sides.''

* ''{{DJMAX}} Technika 2'''s Duo Mixing mode, in which two players play on a single, split-up touchscreen, has been played solo countless times. The game itself even proposes doing this.

* A very odd variant that practically counts as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome is a simultaneous tool-assisted speedrun of ''[[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Mega Man]] [[http://tasvideos.org/871M.html 3, 4, 5 and 6]]'', or ''VideoGame/MegaManX [[http://tasvideos.org/1894M.html 1, 2 and 3]]''. The player is using the same controller inputs perfectly synced for all the games. If you pay attention to only one game, [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoment some moves will seem silly...]]

* In SuperSmashBrosBrawl, it is possible to use a single [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] Wavebird controller with multiple receivers to control multiple characters, almost in the style of the Ice Climbers.
