** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiNocturne'': There is the True Demon route. Not only does it require you to essentially fight all three of the faction leaders and the final boss but it also requires you to fully explore the BrutalBonusLevel, which is full of very challenging puzzles and bosses is addition to a TrueFinalBoss battle against [[spoiler: Lucifer himself]]. If you do complete it however [[spoiler: Lucifer is so impressed with you that he decides to make you his top general in his war against YHVH]].

* ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' challenges the player to follow hard routes which lets them finish the levels faster as opposed to the safer routes, and maybe earn an S-rank as a result. One notable example is Planet Wisp Act 3 where you have to know exactly when to jump and then double jump to avoid the Egg Chasers shooting lasers at you and when to boost to smash the Egg Pawns on the path and prey you don't fall down to the road below before you grab the Cyan Wisp on the upper road, then attempt to stay on the road all the way to the end so you can boost up the ramp at the end and grab the Red Ring in the air. If pulled off correctly you'll be able to use the Cyan Wisp on the prisms ahead when you land to rack up an enormous Color Bonus.

* In ''Fanfic/WaitingIsWorthIt'', Izuku is given the option to get into [=UA=] on Toshinori's recommendation, allowing him to skip the entrance exam all together. Feeling like this would be unfair to all of the other applicants, he decides to forgo this and take the exam instead. Not only does he get in anyway, but this allows him to show off his raw power and save Uraraka

* ''HunterXHunter'' had an odd subversion of this trope in which the group had to choose between two paths one of which would take hours to complete the other of which would only take minutes. The catch was that in order to take the short path you needed to leave two of your teammates behind. Seeing as they only had 20 minutes or so left to finish the maze it seemed like leaving people behind was the only option. However, they were all able to make it to the end by taking the true path of most resistance. They entered the long path and then, because the two paths were right next to each other, punched through the stone wall so they could go down the short path instead.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has this trope in place with several characters choosing to take paths that are harder than they need to be , though it is intentional and for a reason. Reset Ash Ketchum ends up with the qualifications to enter the league after beating the second gym is the most prominent example: while he can technically do nothing from that point on he continued to challenge gyms specifically because he knows that he and his Pokemon aren't ready for it yet. He uses the path to ensure they'd be ready. The Astrid Oneshot explores two people who took the path: with the one who took it fully, a OC named Vermell, defeating Astrid specifically for the parts of the path she didn't do. The Cipher oneshot deconstructs the trope, with a character having specifically chosen this path without being ready for it like Ash, Vermell, and Astrid to an extent were. He ends up at a point where joining Team Cipher is the only way for him to survive.

* The ''GliderPRO'' manual suggested that users of the LevelEditor should strive to create the "Ultimate Room," which would have three possible ways for the player to cross it:

* ''DungeonSiege 2'', like the original, is a fairly linear game where all quests are lined up along a single road that runs from the beginning to the end of the game (with the occasional teleporter to transfer you to a different area, where the "road" continues). However, if you're looking for the really good rewards, especially the side-quests, you need to veer off the road whenever possible. Fortunately, detours are always either cul-de-sac (with loot at the end) or come back to the road not far from where you left off. Going straight all the time will normally cause you to end up with [[ShortCutsMakeLongDelays inferior equipment or experience level]], unless you spend a lot of time [[LevelGrinding running up and down the road many times]] to defeat the same enemies over and over again.
