* ''TimeCrisis'' gives us perhaps the most difficult method of obtaining a 1-up in any LightGunGame: you need to shoot 40 consecutive enemies without missing a shot.

The term is a shortening of the phrase "Player 1 Up", traditionally displayed in older arcade games where multiple players took turns playing, to let the first player know it was his turn. The notion dates clear back to pinball machines.

** The traditional 1-up item in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'' and the TropeMaker is the green mushroom. Additional lives were also awarded for certain scores, or for collecting 100 coins. Before this usage, 1-up indicated it was the first player's turn in a multiplayer arcade game, such as ''VideoGame/{{Galaga}}''.

* Fairly early in ''IndigoProphecy'', a character offers you a cross for protection. Accepting gives you an extra chance at quicktime events, and after the prompt (whether you accepted or declined) you'll start to find more crosses lying around on the ground in out-of-the-way places. Depending on the situation, the extra chance may mean shrugging off the failure (for instance, if you just got punched in the chest), or restarting the event (for instance, if you just got hit by a car.) Sadly, they provide no protection against failure from SanityMeter loss, failure in the StealthBasedMission, or the occasional NonstandardGameOver like taking aspirin with alcohol.

* ''VideoGame/AngryBirds2'' has a meter at the top of the screen that is filled as you destroy stuff in a stage. Each time it completely fills, you get back one of your spent birds, or sometimes a spell although this is fairly uncommon. You can also hit a golden pig to instantly fill the meter.

* ''[[LegacyOfKain Blood Omen]]'' has the Heart of Darkness, which, like previous examples, can instantly restore Kain to (un)life if he dies with at least one in his possession. They can also be used as healing items, and while they're available all over the place, there's a very sneaky (and awesome) way to instantly acquire 99 of them at once. And no, it's not a bug.

* ''VideoGame/UnderDefeat'' averts this trope. You have only your (by default) 3 lives to get you through the game's five stages (twice, if you unlock the second loop), so a single death will really impact your run.

* In ''VideoGame/DevilsDare'', there are the Soul Tokens, which give an extra life to the player, when they're otherwise forced to buy far more expensive continues.



* In ''SpyroTheDragon'', you would get a 1-up from purple chests that blinked. The 1-ups were mini-figurines of Spyro himself. In addition to that, if you defeated enemies that you have already killed for their gems, they will drop either the 1-up statues (very rarely), or the much more abundant silver orbs. Collecting 20 of these orbs gives you another life.
