** Many of the games have a level with bumpers and plungers (e.g. [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Casino Night Zone]]). ''SonicSpinball'' excepted, of course: it featured pinball stages as its whole schtick.

** Each dungeon is associated with a set of armor that modifies how skills function and focuses on testing how well the player has mastered those skills. As a result they have unique objectives which require more finesse than usual.

* ''VideoGame/InTheHunt'' has the Channel stage, a river running through a city overrun with [[MechaMooks death machines]]. Trouble is, your character is a submarine limited to the water, and unlike all the other stages, the water in the channel is very shallow. You will have to utilize your SuperiorFirepowerSurfaceToAirMissiles to the max here as almost all the enemies, including the [[StationaryBoss boss]], will appear above the water.

* The final case of the first ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' game is a bonus stage of sorts; it wasn't included in the original GameBoyAdvance version. When ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' was planned to be re-released for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS, the fifth case was added which allowed players to dust for prints and closely examine evidence.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Oh No! More VideoGame/{{Lemmings}}'' has two:
** Wicked 2, ''Inroducing SUPERLEMMING'', only has you guide one lemming to the exit, but that lemming moves and acts at double speed. This makes for a lot of rapid-fire skill selection and assignment near the end.
** Havoc 10, ''Flow Control'', only sees one skill assignment in the entire level, but requires constant adjustment of the release rate to save enough lemmings.

*** The Zone Eater, a WombLevel complete with a rising and falling ceiling with holes in it. If you get crushed, it's a NonStandardGameOver. Lots of those in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. Another obstacle is a series of bridges with guards that knock you off if you touch them. Naturally, you don't take damage, and there are actually good items down there.

* ''VideoGame/WarCraftIII: The Frozen Throne'' has a bonus level inspired by the custom-made "Tower Defense" maps. Instead of building a base as normal, you have to line up special towers only available in that mission along a maze to shoot down attackers. 2 regular levels also took inspiration from custom maps to mix things up. And then there was the Orc campaign, which was an RPG. A rather simple one since it still used the same interface, but still pretty good. And that is just the (official) tip of the iceberg of uses of the game's engine and powerful editor, which people have used to create all sorts of games. One of them, Defense of the Ancients, has become a game of its own.
