* ''WorldOfWarcraft'''s primary sources of experience are slaughter, quests, and [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs quests involving slaughter]]. However, it is also possible to gain substantial experience simply by walking to a new area and recording it on your world map. This "exploration exp" is available in sufficient quantities to cause well-travelled explorers to gain levels early on even without battling a single monster. Certain high-leveled areas present substantial sums of exp to more advanced characters as well.

** Since you have total freedom over what your primary skills are in Morrowind and Oblivion, you can set them to activities that you perform regularly, such as running, jumping and swimming. This is ill-advised however, because doing so will usually cause you to gain levels far faster than you like, and enemies' levels scale up with yours (in Oblivion).
** Skyrim will give you a free Speech level if you try to "persuade" the guard before entering Whiterun. You also get a free Speech level for pointing out the guard in front of Riften's scam. It's impossible to fail these speech events.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', the standard ways of gaining exp are killing and questing, as above. However, you can gain substantial amounts by talking to people, repeatedly talking to your party members between missions, and even just looking at things, like the computers on your ship.

* There's a subversion in ''Videogame/{{Undertale}}''. [=CHECKing=] The Monster Kid on the No Mercy path will tell you ''"looks like free EXP"''. But if you do try killing them, someone will get in the way, someone who is the [[ThatOneBoss the very opposite]] of easy EXP.
