** Inspector Lestrade plays the game and interacts with NPCs and game systems in the exact same way the player does. Preventing him arresting the wrong person can be difficult.. unless you wait for him to get in a hansom cab, then tell the driver of ''his'' cab to go somewhere. The cab driver obligingly whisks Lestrade off to your choice of destination, and Lestrade freezes because he doesn't know what to do there.
** By repeatedly giving instructions to the NPCs it is possible to coax a hansom cab driver out of their cab and onto a ''train'', which then departs. Having done that, returning to the abandoned hansom cab will have you driven to a bizarre location where you can pick up objects such as "innocent, guilty, an opium den, and a Russian agent".

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ: Buu's Fury'', you can eat a Senzu Bean before you give it to someone for a quest. Does this mean the game wants you to get another one? No, it'll just take the one you don't have, which gives you [[UsefulNotes/PowersOfTwoMinusOne 255]] Senzu Beans.

** ''Tetris DX''[='=]s rotation system is such that your current piece, provided it isn't the square "O" piece, can be kicked back up the wall, over and over, so that the game never actually progresses.

** ''Tetris DX''[='=]s rotation system is such that your current piece, provided it isn't the square "O" piece, can be kicked back up the wall, over and over, so that the game never actually progresses. If you're astronomically patient or have access to utilities for tool-assisted runs, it's possible to max out the score counter this way before you even put down a single block.

** Youtube had a bug where if you put a 0.1 second pause at the end of a video, it will sometimes loop back to the start. This led to some interesting results. Sadly it doesn't work anymore.

** Similarly, for Pi Day one Website/{{Wikipedia}} admin tried to block another for 3.14159265359 seconds as a joke, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_stocks#SQL_for_the_Time-traveling_Block_Breaker_award but somehow ended up setting the block to expire in 1975, which the person on the receiving end of the block saw as expiring in 2021.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Pinball/JohnnyMnemonic'', getting the Hold Bonus award is supposed to carry your end-of-ball bonus to the next one. Instead, it will award the end-of-ball bonus at the end of your current ball, then award it twice at the end of the next one. This is good news for anyone with any amount of end-of-ball bonuses, but because one mode, Spinner Millions, is worth a ludicrous amount of points and is only given to you during the end-of-ball bonus, this allows you to obtain the points from Spinner Millions three times (or more than that if you can get Hold Bonus again).

* The Kureg 1.0 allowed a user to dispense plain hot water for tea bags, noodles or whatever you needed hot water for by doing all the steps to make a beverage with a k-cup, just by not inserting the k-cup into the receptacle. The Kureg 2.0 now [[AscendedGlitch has that as a standard option,]] asking you if you want to simply dispense hot water if you don't insert a k-cup after closing the receptacledddd.

* In the '50s and early '60s, electric guitarists strove to eliminate feedback and distortion in favor of a clean sound. The emergence of heavy rock in the mid-late '60s prompted guitarists like [[Music/TheWho Pete Townshend]] and Music/JimiHendrix to exploit feedback and distortion for ever-louder sounds and changed rock and roll forever.

* An as-of-yet unreplicatable glitch in ''Pinball/WHODunnit'' causes the elevator doors to remain open for the rest of the game. Not only does this allow easy access to modes available only on certain floors, but the shot into the elevator is by far the easiest and safest shot in the game. The discovery of this glitch in 2015, seventeen years after the machine's debut, got it banned from all high-level tournaments due to its exploitability once activated.

* Due to the way ''{{DJMAX}} Technika'''s touch screen handles touches, you can do tap notes by dragging your finger across them, and conversely, you can do chain notes by individually tapping each individual segment. Whether this is a legitimate way of playing the game is a matter of debate.

If a Good Bad Bug is liked ''enough'', it may become an AscendedGlitch. Subtropes include MinusWorld and TheMissingno

{{Game Breaker}}s, while amusing, may be fixed to prevent GameplayDerailment. In some games, the bugs are a major draw for the game, which can lead to claims of ILikedItBetterWhenItSucked if removed.



Contrast GameBreaker, as well as {{Game Breaking Bug}}s that may not overlap with the former. They are [[NotTheIntendedUse often helpful to]] {{Speedrun}}ners. [[IThoughtItMeant This trope has nothing to do with friendly cockroaches and mosquitoes,]] [[WesternAnimation/BugsBunny or a certain cartoon rabbit]].
