* Winning the first ''VideoGame/{{Vectorman}}'' game after using any cheat code would make the game call you on it, and tell you to try again without them, denying you of seeing the ending and credits. This was doubly important when a $25,000 grand prize for beating the game was the factor. You can cheat all you want in the sequel without penalty.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'''s races with Koopa the Quick, as well as Cool, Cool Mountain's Big Penguin Race, using shortcuts disqualifies you from getting the star for that mission, as well as a stern talking-to from the other race participant. However, this only happens if you do it in front of them. If you're behind them (the Penguin) or very far in front (Koopa the Quick), you can cheat.

* The classic text only adventure game ''VideoGame/{{Zork}}'' would mock the player if they typed either of the two magic words from the earlier ''ColossalCave Adventure''. Xyzzy, one of the two words in question, has a long history of producing strange responses in games later than Colossal Cave Adventure---rarely (if ever) beneficial. Due to the frequency of the response, "Nothing happens," in such contexts, typing xyzzy in ''Diablo II'' produced no result whatsoever. Not even an error message.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', Game Sync allows Game Freak to detect things like unreleased items or the sole unreleased Pokemon, Marshadow, and players are getting banned from online events and battling for it. Also, Game Freak seems to be targeting giveaways on the GTS, banning players for trading too many Pokemon too fast. Sadly, a few innocents got caught up in the bans but couldn't get the problem fixed any sooner than the pre-determined ban length.
** This is the reason ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' never got Oak's Letter or the Member Card released for the Shaymin and Darkrai events. Players were getting them all the time through tweaking and surf glitch, so Game Freak just gave out events by wi-fi instead. Also, getting Shaymin by the glitch methods doesn't trigger the fateful encounter flag, so you can't get the Gracidea flower to change its form.



** Attempt to use GPS spoofing in ''VideoGame/PokemonGo''[[note]]that is, trick the game into thinking you're somewhere you're not[[/note]] and this will result in an hour-long ban--but this isn't a typical ban in that it will not lock you out of the game. Instead, you're denied access to pokestops and gyms, and wild Pokémon will always run away from you. This was later changed so that GPS spoofing will result in a proper, typical ban. (Rooted and jailbroken users are also denied access to the game.)

Of course, players have figured out this can be bypassed by teleporting back home after engaging the Pokemon but before catching it...

* Whenever you enter a cheat code in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', you'll hear a voice shouting ''"Yooouuu cheated!"''. The clip is taken from one of the characters in the final level who accuses Raz of cheating, regardless of whether or not you did so, since [[FantasticRacism all psychics are no-good cheaters]].
