\n* ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' will give you a small EXP bonus for doing sidequests. This becomes handy on NewGamePlus, as the EXP from this doesn't diminish as your level increases.






* Basic Roleplaying and it's descendants (Call of Cthulhu and Runequest being the most famous) doesn't have experience points. Instead they have a system where you get a chance to increase a skill if you used it. Realistic in that you get better at doing stuff by actually doint it, unrealistic in the amount of increase a single use can get and unrealistic in that it causes player to use skills for little or no reason other than to increase it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'' gives you EXP for completing sidequests. However, an important part of the game is having Kyuu go and train with others, which increases his stats outside of leveling up and RareCandy usage.

* The German tabletop RPG ''TabletopGame/{{Midgard}}'' explicitly splits XP into three categories depending on how they're acquired: combat, magic, and "general". This division informs what skills they can be invested in; combat XP in particular are good only for acquiring and raising combat and certain other primarily physical/athletic skills, which means that aside from the usual dangers to life and limb getting the lion's share of one's XP solely from fighting also risks stunting the character's development in other areas.

* In ''TabletopGame/ApocalypseWorld'' and games running on the same engine, e.g. ''TabletopGame/MonsterOfTheWeek'', your most common source of XP is botched skill rolls: the GM gets to do something nasty to your character, but you get an XP for it.

* In ''TabletopGame/ApocalypseWorld'' and games running on most of its hacks, your most common source of XP is rolling for your "highlighted" stats (two of your stats selected at the same engine, e.g. start of each session by the player whose character has the highest RelationshipValues with you and by your GameMaster, respectively). You also gain an XP whenever your [[RelationshipValues Hx]] with another player rolls over (i.e. gets an increase when it's already +3, resetting to +1), or when a special move tells you to mark XP.
* The second edition of
''TabletopGame/MonsterOfTheWeek'', your most common source of based on ''Apocalypse World'', removed the Hx scores, so you instead mark an XP is botched for any skill rolls: roll that you botch: the GM gets to do something nasty to your character, but you get an XP for it.
