** ''Project DIVA Future Tone'', the port of the Arcade version for PS4, takes this back a step. Easy through Hard difficutlies are unlocked at the start, but if you want to play songs on Extreme, you have to complete them on Hard first.

*** Combee was almost as bad as Drifloon; found on only one optional trainer outside Veilstone City, or you had to take the time to do the ScrappyMechanic of slathering Honey on Honey Trees in the hopes that Combee appears after waiting a day for the tree to start shaking.

** For most games, if you wanted [[OneHundredPercentCompletion all of the gold trophies]], you have to 1st-place every cup on every engine class. This means if you go straight into 150 cc mode and get all of the golds for that class, you ''still'' need to go down to the easier classes for their trophies. This applies to star rankings as well. ''Mario Kart 8'' finally alleviates this by giving you star and trophy credit for the class you earned them on ''and all classes below them as well'', so that 150 cc 3-star gold trophy clear will now count for 50 cc and 100 cc too.

* ''VideoGame/MarioKart 7'' and ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' pad out the requirements to unlock kart parts to the extreme. Every part requires you collecting coins to unlock them. Some parts only need a few hundred coins while other parts can only be unlocked every few ''thousand'' coins. One of the final parts will force you to get 10,000 coins or more. Have fun playing the same tracks over and over again since you can only hold 10 coins max per race. The only consolation is that a few select parts can be unlocked (or at least be unlocked a bit faster) by winning races online and successfully connecting to another player with the [=StreetPass=] feature in ''7'', and by playing local multiplayer with three other players as their coins will be added to your total in ''8''. If you lack Wi-Fi and/or don't live in a dense city where you can run into someone who also has their [=StreetPass=] turned on, or you don't have friends to play with, then you will have to resort to coin collecting.

** The Triforce Hunting segment of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' is notorious for being very time consuming but not particularly fun. Particularly since it costs so much to have Tingle [[PlotCoupon decipher the maps]] that you have to ''increase your wallet size'' to even start this part. The HD remake reduces the longevity by having only three fragments collected via the maps, as the other five are collected directly in the chests that pointed to their maps in the original.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels'' has four extra Worlds after World 8. The catch? You have to beat the game '''eight times''', with [[NoFairCheating NO Warp Zones]]. Fortunately, the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioAllStars'' remake only requires you to complete Worlds 1 through 8 once, and Warp Zones are allowed.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' [[GameMod ROM hack]] ''SMW Lost Map'' has a somewhat ridiculous example where instead of remaking just one level from the original ''Super Mario Bros'', the creator makes players [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-lfWpf-h94 beat all eight worlds of the original game in a row with no checkpoints, as if it was just one massive level.]]

* ''AirForceDelta Strike'' plays this straight with the Stand-By missions. Fortunately, they're skippable.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' is sometimes criticized for this as well, largely due to the vast distances between locations in the Sky and the final Spirit Realm challenge near the end.
*** There's also a point where you must go through the first dungeon again with new enemies to get Sacred Water to heal the Water Dragon. You can't even skip it by getting the water during your first visit; it will inexplicably be regular water if you try to scoop it up before you're tasked with getting it.
