* Similar to Rule 0, mentioned above, RuleOfCool is often invoked in less serious campaigns (or even more serious ones, if the said thing is ''really cool''). While this is sort of a subversion Rule 0 (breaking the rules as the PLAYERS' plot demands it, not the GM's), being that most tabletop RPGs are considered collaborative storytelling, it still applies.

* During Fukuwara Mask's town revitalization wrestling event in ''Anime/TigerMaskW'', the count-out rule was not enforced for the final match because the mayor asked the referee not to.

* In the anime, the Egyptian God Cards cannot be effected by any card effect apart from each other's, and in Ra's case, not even that. However, in the first duel with The Seal Of Orichalos, it does raise Obelisk's Attack Points. Apparently, because the Orichalcos is more ancient, it has more power than the Egyptian Gods.

*** This situation is partially {{retcon}}ned by Konami's later creation of [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/The_Creator_God_of_Light,_Horakhty The Creator God of Light, Horakhty]], a sort of ultimate God Card that is can be brought out by tributing the original three Egyptian Gods and automatically winning the duel. This still fails to explain how Yugi's win occurs on Anubis's turn, however.

** When Anubis replaces Kaiba in the duel against Yugi, the rest of the duel is 1/3 this trope and 2/3 ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers. First, Obnoxious Celtic Guardian is destroyed in battle by Sphinx Teleia which has 2500 ATK, despite the fact that Obnoxious Celtic Guardian cannot be destroyed by monsters with 1900 or more ATK (which saved him from Noah once), and Teleia's effect doesn't activate, which would defeat Atem. Second, Anubis sets Theinen the Great Sphinx like a Spell or Trap Card on the field, despite it is a Monster Card (no, he doesn't set it in Defense Position). And finally, Yugi manages to destroy Theinen the Great Sphinx with his three Egyptian Gods without using an effect and he wins the duel. It cannot be either Obelisk's Soul Max effect, since it's Anubis turn, or Ra's Phoenix Mode, since Yugi cannot pay 1000 Life Points with only having 50. Yugi just combined the power of his three Egyptian Gods without activating one of their effects. For the rule breaking part, see the main page of ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers.

* During the life threatening duel between Yugi and Jonouchi, where the winner gets the key to free himself from the anchor, Yugi chooses himself as Jonouchi's Spell Card's target. Yugi lose all of his Life Points, but Jonouchi realizes that his Spell Card allows him to be attacked by Yugi's Red-Eyes Black Dragon, so Jonouchi would lose all of his Life Points as well. Regardless how you look, Yugi lost his Life Points first, and Jonouchi needs minutes to figure out that he himself can be attacked. Both effects of his Spell Card does not work simultaneously.

* Each time The Winged Dragon of Ra is played it has a new power. First, there is that special writing which can only be seen under the light of the God (and that means the hologram). When Mai summons it, it doesn't work, since you need to read the text (that is written in Egyptian) to activate it. Marik promptly reads the text, taking Ra to his side of the field and activating it. Next battle, it has two new abilities: it can increase/decrease its attack points by decreasing/increasing his owner Life Points at the owner's will, and it can attack at the same turn as it has been summoned. And against Jonouchi, Ra has an Phoenix Mode that allows Marik to destroy all monsters of the opponent at the cost of 1000 LP, and it cannot be harmed in this mode. And this is all before the battle is against Yugi, when it shows its real power.

** Ishizu's Blast Held by a Tribute card, that she uses against Kaiba, uses a similar mind-reading hidden-information mechanic to Dark Sanctuary. In that case, she designates one of her monsters as the target, then when Kaiba uses his spell card to tribute it for Obelisk, the effect that will destroy it only goes off if Obelisk, specifically, attacks.

* In his duel with Kajiki/[[DubNameChange Mako]], Yugi calls an attack on "Full Moon". Three major problems with that. First, "Full Moon" is Yugi's own card and is on his side of the battlefield. Second, it's a magic card, not a monster. Third, he's trying to ''stab the moon with a sword''. Yet not only does this somehow work, it dramatically alters the battlefield, causing the ACTUAL tide (not a card effect) to go out [[FridgeLogic lower than it was before he summoned the moon]], and ''beaching Kajiki's sea monsters''. Konami is well aware of how ridiculous that is, as evidenced by this card: [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Attack_the_Moon! Attack the Moon!]]

* Averted in Kaiba's reaction to the Winged Dragon of Ra. Midway through the series, Kaiba discovers through his computer that Ra has several 'unwritten' powers. Seeing as it's his tournament and he made the rules for it anyway, he could just declare that only the abilities listed in the text count, making Ra much easier to defeat, but he doesn't. Justified since this would really defeat the point of the tournament in the first place, which is to see who deserves to be called the best and if Kaiba were to nerf his opponent's best card just so that he can win he'd lose face and more importantly, sell out his own principles.
