** The difference may have been due to the manner in which they cheated. Alternate-Kirk simply disabled the shields of the enemy vessels and destroyed them, while Kirk-Prime reprogrammed the enemy's behavior to respect the reputation he intended to build as captain such that they would allow him to proceed unmolested. So while Alternate-Kirk cheated in a way that he could plausibly have hidden and gotten away with entirely if not for the fact that the game was {{unwinnable}}, Kirk-Prime took RefugeInAudacity.

* In a very early ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' episode, during the Chunin exams the ninjas-in-training are given a written test with the unusual rule that they cannot be caught cheating more than four times. So, needless to say, all of the skilled students discreetly use their ninja skills to do so without getting caught. Which was, of course, [[HiddenPurposeTest the entire point]], as the test was absurdly difficult (Sakura was the only one who actually knew any answers) and two planted students were given the answers ahead of time. Naruto himself, however, unwittingly engaged in LoopholeAbuse due to the aforementioned nature of the exam. [[spoiler: Since he never ''attempted'' to cheat, he was never caught, and thus passed the exam on those grounds.]]

* The Baltimore Orioles of the 1890's. They pretty much stretched the rules of baseball of time like taffy. A short list of the things they did: having the ground keeping crew alter the field in various ways to enable Baltimore's batters to play "small ball," hiding a ball within the outfield grass, grabbing onto the base runner's belt, putting dirt and pebbles in shoes, throwing equipment at base runners, tripping base runners, shoving base runners, and hip checks on base runners. As others have mentioned many times, this was not considered cheating, but playing smart baseball. Their manager at the time called it "playing baseball as she was meant to be played" though John McGraw, their pugnacious 3rd baseman more truthfully called it "artful kicking." They inspired other baseball teams, even to this day.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', the Straw Hats take massive advantage of this during the Davy Back Fight. After all, it can't be proven they're responsible for the mass of fog and heavy wind that covered the field just before the second round, or that they beat the hell out of the Groggy Monsters under the cover of said fog.

** Many religions established footholds and spread like wildfire only ''after'' authorities tried to snuff them out. A number of religious philosophers have actually longed for 'fire' to re-forge their groups' beliefs during periods of prosperity as peace tends to foster complacency and legalism.
