* The icon for easy mode in ''VideoGame/{{Deadpool}}'' is Deadpool's face with a pacifier and a tear streaming from one eye.

* The icon for easy mode in ''VideoGame/{{Deadpool}}'' is Deadpool's face with a pacifier and a tear streaming from one eye. At the same time, in a sly jab at both this trope and the online backlash against this trope in some communities, the actual name of the easy mode is "Genetically Superior".

*Weirdly enough, British GCSEs (exams done at age 16) come in two difficulties; foundation and higher, but you cannot get the higher grades on foundation (higher than C on the old system or 5 on the new one)

* The Genesis version of ''VideoGame/GoldenAxe'' has a Beginner mode consists of only three stages, ending the game with a battle against Death Adder Jr., a weaker version of the real Death Adder. Downplayed, in that after defeating the last boss in Beginner mode, the game encourages you to try Arcade mode, or return to Beginner mode to train more.

* Picking easy mode in re-releases of ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' will make the player character wear a [[ColourCodedEmotions yellow costume]] (as opposed to the normal Red). When this costume was first announced, many fans cried out a lot, when they did not realize that there were various difficulty modes for the game.

* {{Downplayed|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'': if you're playing as Team Rose, the length of every level is reduced (i.e., you start off Seaside Hill after the huge jump that you go through as Team Sonic and Team Dark) and your Team Blast gives each member of the team an attack increase, a shield and invincibility, but completing their story is required to reach the TrueFinalBoss.

* ''VideoGame/CastleOfIllusion'' ends after you collect the third gem if you play on easy, with Mizerabel merely giving Minnie back to you.

* ''VideoGame/CastleOfIllusion'' ends after you collect the third gem if you play on easy, with Mizerabel merely giving Minnie back to you. Subverted in that the game doesn't chastise you and instead encourages you to try Normal mode with the promise of "many new and exciting levels".

* {{CAVE}}'s console ports in general disable achievements and at save high scores to a separate leaderboard (if they're saved at all) if you play on non-standard difficulty settings. (This occurs even if you ''raise'' the difficulty, since having more bullets shot at you can lead to higher scores by milking bullet cancelling/grazing bonuses.) Some games also won't allow you to face the TrueFinalBoss on easier difficulties.

* In ''VideoGame/ContraIIITheAlienWars'', if you play the game on easy mode, you'll only play through half of the levels. If you play on the normal mode, you'll play the whole game, but won't get an ending. Instead, you'll get a message congratulating you and then telling you to play the game on hard mode. Beating the game on hard mode lets you see the game's true ending.



* In ''VideoGame/BarOasis'', you need to know your drink components. If you have to look up the recipe while gathering your drink components, the next screen will turn to Amateur mode. Your maximum profit will also be cut to $1/drink in ''Bar Oasis 1'', $3/drink in ''Bar Oasis 1.5'' and ''Bar Oasis 2''. To ratchet up the mockery in ''Bar Oasis 2'', if you decide to have your drink automatically made (after making an Excellent rated cocktail once), that drink will be rated "Decent", one step above "Sewage".

* In ''{{VideoGame/Cuphead}}'', if you play on the "Simple" difficulty mode, you won't be able to collect the soul contracts of every boss, which is needed to see the Devil and [[spoiler: and decide if you want to join him or fight him, which earns you the good ending.]]
