** ''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.

* ''VideoGame/GHOSTSquad'' will still award the "EXCELLENT!" point bonus for Lacard Zimone, the Mission 2 boss, if you fire before his third shot ''even if you miss''.

* In ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'', during the Hero missions a secondary character follows you around, and a second player can plug in a controller and control that character. In the Lost Impact stage, while Shadow is riding the Gun Rail he apparently loses his FriendlyFireproof status, as the secondary character (who is [[DeathByOriginStory Maria]], no less) can slap Shadow out of the cockpit, causing an ''explosion'' and making you lose rings.

* Certain more recent Tamagotchi models have [[http://www.pixelmood.com/tamagotchi_connection_debugging.htm a trick]] with a pencil and a screwdriver that lets you access the device's debug menu, which allows you to choose any pet you want, including those that were DummiedOut.

* One online ''Pokémon'' battle simulator will sometimes get stuck on processing a move in a battle against an NPC, forcing the player to refresh the screen and turning back the clock to the last action taken by the player. Very helpful if the last thing the NPC did was knock your Pokémon out.

* {{UsefulNotes/Steam}} sometimes messes up the prices of games during sales, resulting in ''VideoGame/NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStorm'' being on sale for $5.61...with its original price being erroneously listed as ''[[https://41.media.tumblr.com/7d943f96d3ed78165ec51f64535838b5/tumblr_nuh54xJBvo1qdmip9o1_1280.png 184 quadrillion dollars]]''. Though being part of a LongRunner AnimeAndManga franchise, [[CrackIsCheaper it probably feels like it costs that much]].

* ''Webcomic/OrderOfTheStick'' invoked this in a battle with the Linear Guild. Cleric Durkon opened up with a spell that whammied anyone evil-aligned in the vicinity, which came in handy when the villainous Nale used tried to use CharmPerson on TokenEvilTeammate Belkar. To quote Roy: "It's not a bug, it's a feature."

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' had several that were BoringButPractical such as running at 1.5 times his normal speed by switching to the [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter Striker]], raising it and then quickly equipping another weapon before the laser sight could activate ([[http://speeddemosarchive.com/ResidentEvil4.html useful but cautiously used]] in [[SpeedRun speedrunning]]). However, the most memorable is Ashley's abilty to [[TookALevelInBadass suplex enemies]] by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0Tg1btDrMA whacking them with a door]]. It's also possible to open locked doors from the wrong side with the TMP equipped to bypass entire "find the key" [[FetchQuest Fetch Quests]], pressing L + R before every PressXToNotDie moment which (most of the time) makes the other button prompt appear, and being able to push Ashley through the scenery by getting her into a corner and pushing against her when she ducks (useful for keeping enemies off of her). Also, the gimmick where Ashley scolds you for looking up her skirt is literally set to trigger ''anytime'' Leon's eyes aim up in that direction: even when he's been knocked down by an enemy or his [[CrowningMomentOfFunny severed head rolls between her legs]].
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' had a glitch where you could load guns using the inventory... even if they were the gun you had out. In multiplayer, this allowed skilled players to reload near instantly, circumventing the weakness of many weapons and making chaining combos together a lot easier.

* The Special Digivolve card in ''DigimonCardBattle'' is supposed to allow you to digivolve your current card into a Digimon of a different specialty, adding 20 DP to the amount required for digivolution in exchange. That's how it's ''supposed'' to work. Instead, using the Special Digivolve card actually ''reduces'' the amount of DP required by 20. In addition, if used on a Champion-stage card whose stats are halved because it wasn't digivolved from a Rookie, Special Digivolve results in an Ultimate Digimon with full stats.
** However, the manual states that this is a feature, not a glitch.

* ''Sherlock'', the followup to Creator/MelbourneHouse's already infamously-buggy ''[[VideoGame/TheHobbit1982 Hobbit]]'', was less a game and more a collection of wonderful errors strung together with plot. Contemporary videogame magazines had a cottage industry of finding the best bugs, giving us [[http://www.filfre.net/2013/12/sherlock/ such gems as]]:
** "You can see an unconscious policeman. An unconscious policeman says " I'm sorry, sir, I have my orders, but no one is to get by."

* ''The Meteor, the Stone and a Long Glass of Sherbet'' opens with the player and Lady Amilia riding in a howdah on an elephant's back. It's possible to ask Amilia to pass you objects -- but she will happily give you ''any'' object you can refer to, even ones normally out of reach. She will readily give you herself, for example, meaning she's available to do the same scenes; or hand you the green glow you see in the sky.
