*** One of the major things they were trying to get rid of were a lot of so-called "technical skills" - that is to say, very difficult to execute in-game commands which require a lot of practice to perform. Mechanics like wavedashing (which more or less replaced normal movement in Super Smash Bros. Melee) and L-cancelling (which was simply a case of bad design - there's never any reason not to l-cancel every move ever, so why is it the game in the first place?) were deliberately removed in order to simplify the controls. They largely succeeded at that, but the more people practice a fighting game, the more emergent gameplay tends to come out.

* In some installments of the ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'' series:
**Players were able to figure out that throwing a wooden crate onto a ledge and then shooting a rope arrow into it was one way of being able to use rope arrows in a space that otherwise seemed unsuitable to them (as they can only stick into wood or soil). The FanSequel ''The Dark Mod'' actually notes and briefly touches upon utilising the crate-roping method in its tutorial mission.

Technically speaking, any synthesis of gameplay mechanical elements is Emergent Gameplay. However, this article (of necessity) will only list notable examples, such as ones that have been given names by players.

* The idea for ''Left4Dead'' came about when Turtle Rock Studios (who developed [=L4D=]) were developing the bots for ''Counter-Strike: Condition Zero'' and decided to play game where there were a ton of bots, players versus bots, and the bots on very hard with knives only. The result is very similar to the Horde Zerg rushing at times in [=L4D=]

* Online free-to-play shooter Videogame/GunZ: The Duel began as a fairly standard shooter, albeit with wall-jumping and other feats of badassery. Then, the playerbase discovered a number of bugs; these days, it's difficult to compete if you aren't proficient in the styles of play known as K-style, D-Style, or E-Style.

* In ''FinalFantasyXI'', the ninja job was introduced with the intention that players would use it as a damage dealer that would use magical ninjutsu to supplement physical damage. However, players discovered that the Utsusemi ninjutsu, which would nullify attacks for a few times, coupled with the ninja's great evasion stats, made it a great choice for a tank. Eventually, developers began producing gear for ninjas that complemented this play style instead.

* Nudging a {{pinball}} machine to save an otherwise doomed ball has become an allowed maneuver in competitions. The technique of banging the bottom of the table to knock the ball over a divider and back into play, on the other hand, remains universally banned.
