* ''VideoGame/TheSimpsonsHitAndRun'' let you skip a mission after about five failed attempts. However, you can't skip the final mission, which just happens to be the [[ThatOneLevel most difficult and]] [[NintendoHard frustrating mission in the game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'' does this deep into the hidden painting aptly named "Nest of Evil", in one particular chamber you are expected to fight TWO [[ThatOneBoss The Creatures]] at the same time. The game so does not expect you to survive that it opens the gates forward if you survive for one minute.

* The ''[[VideoGame/FreeSpace Descent: Freespace]]'' series gives you the option to skip any mission by dying three times in a row (but not by failing the mission objectives). However, any ships or weapons that may be unlocked by completing that mission becomes LostForever. There's also a "Do Not Show This Again" option for the more hardcore players.

** Also, after beating the first game (and possibly all the subsequent ones) with OneHundredPercentCompletion...you unlock the ability to ignore weight restrictions when building your mech, a reward that, like many on [[BraggingRightsReward this page]], isn't something you need if you're good enough to unlock it.

* If you fail a chart in ''Neon FM'', you will be switched down to an easier chart. Unless you're playing on Pro Mode, which forces you on the song's hardest chart and causes an instant GameOver if you fail.
