* ''RailroadTycoon 2'''s campaign mode can be bypassed with an "Immediate gold medal" cheat. However, this gives you the message "You win. Cheater..."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosX'', using any of the various cheat codes that give you items, lives, or other things such as free map movement will disable saving. Unless you type "redigitiscool" while on the map screen, which will let you save again.

* In ''Battlefield 1942'', you can enter cheatcodes through the console. If you enter it wrong, even by one letter, the console says "Trying to cheat? Shame on you. Feel my wrath." Such a result ends in an instant failure for your team. Even if you type it correctly, you are still reduced to about five death tickets instantly. However, once the round ends and you begin another one in the same match, the cheatcode still lies in effect.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven'': In ''Megamix'''s Final Remix, if you try to cheese your way through the "Clap Trap" segment by repeatedly tapping/pressing A, the game will penalize you by locking out your inputs for the duration of the "Jungle Gymnast" and "Karate Man Senior" segments.

Of course, the game's own AI is never penalized for cheating, because everybody knows TheComputerIsACheatingBastard.

Subtrope of EarnYourFun. Compare EasyModeMockery, where the game just doesn't like you making it easier for yourself. Also related to some examples of CopyProtection, where the game punishes the player for pirating.

** The imp will also acknowledge when you type in a cuss word.



* In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'', if it detects cheats, it lets you progress all the way to Toad Town, and then softlocks you by refusing to let you get the Attack Pieces at the end of the blue shell tutorial. Of course, with the proper cheats, you can bypass this... until you absolutely need a blue shell to progress further. The only thing that would make this better is if the Koopas said, [[TakeThat "Gor! Can't get 'em? You should come back when you aren't such a CHEATER!" "Cheater! Cheater!"]]

* Freeware ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' fangame ''Sonic Gather Battle'' quickly gained infamy for having such ludicrously invasive anti-cheat DRM (such as invading your computer to steal information such as your IP address to upload to a cloud server, changing files in your OS' registry, and force-closing your internet browser if you even so much as type "cheat" or "hack" into it) that the game is considered by many to be malware disguised as a game.
