* The ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet 2'' Beta has an easter egg where if you use a Controllinator to enter the Konami code on a seemingly broken arcade game, it will explode displaying an 8 digit code on the wall behind where it was.
** As well as this being in the fullgame, there is also a level where you ride a camel shooting at enemies. Inputting the Konami Code early in the level makes disco mucic play and makes the camel wear sunglasses.

* Using the code on ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'''s [[https://playoverwatch.com/en-gb/ official website]] causes miniature Hanzos to start raining down. In the actual game itself, [[GamerChick D.Va]] herself says out loud the code in one of her voice lines.

While the code first appeared in the NintendoEntertainmentSystem version of ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'', it became famous for its use in ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}''. Largely because it's generally considered [[NintendoHard a necessity to even have a chance at winning]] in that game.

While the code first appeared in the NintendoEntertainmentSystem version of ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'' [[note]]Originally, it was intended as an aid to debugging the NES port, as the game was ''very'' NintendoHard, and the guy in charge of the port forgot to remove it from the final release[[/note]], it became famous for its use in ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}''. Largely because it's generally considered [[NintendoHard a necessity to even have a chance at winning]] in that game.

* The game ''[[Franchise/GundamExpandedUniverse Gundam SEED Destiny: Generation of C.E.]]'' features the "SEED Sense" effect, where starting to watch an attack animation had the chance to prompt you to push one of the PS2 controller face buttons. Doing so had the chance to improve any number of things, and even prevent death automatically at low health an unlimited number of times, as long as you hit the right button. However, starting an attack animation locked you into viewing it, so the game took longer to play and got stale more quickly. How do you get out of the attack animations after using your "SEED Sense," you ask? Push Down, Down, Up, Up, Right, Left, Right, Left, R3, L3, and Start. An inverted Konami code.

** The original versions of DDR (not including the American PS1 version, which was based on [=3rdMIX=]) require directional codes to turn on other difficulty levels and options. Sure enough, the eight directions of the Konami Code make up one of them (Double Basic).
** In the PS1 version of ''Dance Dance Revolution 5th Mix'', highlighting the correct picture in the gallery and entering the code, replacing B and A with X and O (which are in the same respective positions on the PS1 controller as the B and A buttons on the SNES controller), unlocks the last four pictures in the gallery.

** Enter it on the title screen in ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' (with Circle and X substituing for B and A; Circle and X are the Western PlayStation game menu equivalents of B and A) to unlock Very Hard and Revengeance difficulty levels without beating the game on lower difficulty levels first. In the PC version, entering the code also immediately unlocks Jetstream, Bladewolf, the VR missions, and all codecs and cutscenes.
