* Wiki/SCPFoundation has a number of articles that screw with the typical format of the articles, and sometimes even modify the actual content of the articles. Generally anything with tag ''[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/system:page-tags/tag/meta#pages Meta]]'' is some kind of example of this.

* Many games (notably ''VideoGame/RainbowSix'', ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}'' and ''SWAT4'') have flashbang grenades that will disrupt the sound for players near the blast, and cause gradually fading whiteout and/or afterimage of the screens of players looking towards the grenade. Unfortunately, in multiplayer it can be extremely common (especially with less skilled/experienced players) to affect as many or more teammates than enemies. {{Griefer}}s in Counter Strike often deliberately throw flash grenades at their teammates to mess them up.

* In ''GoldeneyeRogueAgent'', being hit with a Venom Gun causes the screen to flash (and stay) a sickly dark green, while your movement slows. The OMEN X-R causes the screen to flash white as [[DisintegratorRay you rapidly dissolve into a little pile of ash.]]

** And then there's [[spoiler:God-Flowey, the FinalBoss of the Neutral path. If you used SaveScumming to kill Toriel and then go back and spare her, you'll know that Flowey possesses the same powers of "Saving" as you do, and ''boy'' does he make liberal use of it throughout the fight, constantly saving across multiple files and reloading in order to connect with an attack you had previously dodged, among other such shenanigans.]]

* Pac-Man is a fun game. In ''Literature/ReadyPlayerOne'', a fun unit is added when a DiegeticInterface popup (for a scoreboard alert on an ongoing contest) blocks view of the Pac-Man display near the end of a perfect play run.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitness'':
** Objects such as trees and rocks can block panels depending on what angle they are looked at, preventing one from drawing lines through the obstructing objects and forcing the player to find the proper angle to observe the panel from.
** The endgame area features [[spoiler: increasingly broken puzzle panels whose grid rotates or moves, panels that flash rainbow colors and make it hard to discern the true color of symbols, and a set of panels which you control simultaneously and must solve all at once.]]

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator''
** If Senpai is in close proximity to Yandere-chan, the screen will turn pink, [[HeartbeatSoundtrack her heart will begin to race]], her moving speed will be reduced to a slow trudge, and she will drop whatever item she's currently holding to try and still her fluttering heart.
** If the player tries to look up info on [[InformationBroker Info-chan]], she will hack the phone, filling it with static and chastising the player for trying to dig up dirt on her.

* The SuperGameBoy for the Super NES allows you to do this to ''[[SelfImposedChallenge yourself]]'' by choosing the Graffiti option and selecting the option that lets you draw over the ''game area'', as well, instead of just the border. The Super Game Boy guide encourages players to do this for extra challenge: drawing a star over Mario's probable position in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand'' or covering the top of the pit and the Next box with hands in ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}'', for examples. Also, since you can change what color each of the four shades becomes, you can deliberately (or accidentally!) choose a color scheme that makes things harder to make out, or even invisible! Say, a game of ''VideoGame/DrMario'' in which two of the pill colors are invisible...

** In the "Freak Fortress 2" mod (a variant of VS Saxton Hale where players team up to fight a [[Memes/TeamFortress2 memetic TF2 character]] like Painis Cupcake or Christian Brutal Sniper), some of the freaks' special abilities do this. For example, Demopan can fill his opponents' screens with fake trade requests.

* ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'' revolves around a satanic arcade machine that is constantly breaking down. The main goal of the game is to work out how to undo the interface screws that are breaking the mandatory minigames. [[spoiler:Asmodeus.exe, the game's third boss, screws things up even more by trying to trick the player into looking away from the screen by faking {{Steam}} messages, social media notification sounds, and even temporarily "freezing" the game.]]
