* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' on the UsefulNotes/SegaCD will end on earlier levels when playing on lower difficulties. You can only play the entire game on hard mode. This is bizarre for a game seemingly aimed at the youngest of players.

** Playing on Beginner Mode in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' prevents the "Risky Winds" Forecast from happening.

** Playing on Beginner Mode in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' prevents the "Risky Winds" Forecast from happening. The bad part comes from the fact that Risky winds make all dream eaters made their one grade higher than normal and increases the chance of making rare dream eaters.

** Save files set to Beginner Mode in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'', ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', or ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' cannot unlock the various secret ending videos.

** Save files set to Beginner Mode in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'', ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', or ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' cannot unlock the various secret ending videos. While the secret endings can be accessed on Standard Mode, the main requirement for doing so in this case involves getting HundredPercentCompletion, which has some intentionally absurd objectives.

** More specific to the trope, most regular ''Touhou'' games won't let you unlock the Extra Stage if you complete the game on Easy (''Perfect Cherry Blossom'', ''Imperishable Night'', ''Phantasmagoria of Flower View'', ''Great Fairy Wars'', ''Double Dealing Character'', and ''Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom'' being the exceptions). In fact, ''Subterranean Animism'' has a bug that if you already have the Extra Stage unlocked and then complete the game on Easy, it will lock the stage right back up. Though, for a few of the games, there is a [[GameBreaker way to make the higher difficulties]] ''[[GameBreaker easier]]'' [[GameBreaker than Easy mode]]. But considering that the Extra Stage is somewhere between Hard and Lunatic in terms of difficulty, if you can only clear the game on Easy, you are probably not prepared for the Extra Stage anyway.

* In ''VideoGame/MegaManX5'' if you play on easy, you cannot get ''any'' parts from the bosses, because [[AssPull they are low level bosses]].

* If you play on Easy in ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'', you can unlock and fight Omega of ''VideoGame/MegaManZero 3'' fame, but you won't receive the reward for defeating him, the [[InfinityPlusOneSword OX module]].

** In ''VideoGame/MegaManPoweredUp'':
*** The final battle with Dr. Wily ends after the first phase on Easy Mode, wherein Wily escapes cackling "[[SequelHook Maybe next time!]]". It still gives you an epilogue that assumes he was actually defeated, though.
*** Collectibles scattered through the levels that add features to the game's LevelEditor also do not spawn in Easy Mode.
** In ''Mega Man Legacy Collection 2'', if Super Armour is enabled, a tiny icon appears in the top-left corner of the game screen to indicate it, making it easy to determine if videos or screenshots were taken with it enabled.

* In ''VideoGame/JurassicParkPart2TheChaosContinues'' for the SNES, you can only unlock the last 2 levels (which give you the true ending) if you play through the game on Hard.
