Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/ToneSphere'', the "judgedelta" cheat allows you to change the size of the timing windows. Entering a positive value for the cheat to make the timing windows looser will disqualify any scores you get with it.

* If you play ''VideoGame/NekoAtsume'', DO NOT manually change the time on your device.[[note]]Changing the time ''zone'' is fine, however.[[/note]] If you then load the game up, it will know and prevent the game from updating temporarily. Sometimes it's a few days until this "soft ban" lifts, sometimes it's a ''year'' or two.

** Strangely inverted in French, where "going tilt" somehow mutated into anonomatopeia for BeamOfEnlightenment.



* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' only displays "Cheat activated!" when a cheat is entered, but custom maps often change the message into highly insulting messages about the player's competence, maturity or genetic heritage, while others actively punish the player for using cheats by failing the map or making it unwinnable (since there's no way to actually stop the game engine from running them). Many even inform would-be players that the map is not optimized to work with cheats, so there's no point in complaining if the boss was killed during his intro cutscene and freezing the game.



** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', the store kept by a bird has this: you can just fill your lantern/bottle, but if you walk out, it yells at you and once you come back, it attacks you. Fortunately, you can stop him by putting even just one Rupee in the box (but then he calls you a cheapskate when you leave).

** In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'', cheats are entered via the cellphone. After you enter it, but before it's executed, it will provide a confirmation screen where it ''explicitly'' states that using the cheat would prevent the player from earning certain achievements (which it may also state).

** In the ''DX'' version, though, you were actually required to steal from the shop to get one of the photos in the game. Most people chose to save this one for the end of the game when they didn't need to go into the shop again anyway.

The DX version also has an exclusive dungeon designed for the Game Boy Color and it has its enemies and puzzles based on colors. Trying to get past the skeleton guards on a regular Game Boy will have them blocking the way and even if you do manage to get past them, trying to play through the colors gimmick without any actual color would be too frustrating to attempt.
