* Thanks to a GoodBadBug, the gate between Muse and Matilda in ''SuikodenII'' is pushable: as long as you don't talk to the guards around the normally closed gate, you can just walk straight through it. On the other side is a zone which you aren't supposed to reach until noticably later in the game, with appropriately leveled monsters and items in the shops. There's also a pair of recruitable party members who join you temporarily to complete a side-quest (and join permanently at the end of the quest). All you have to do is make a mad dash from the gate to the town where these two are, and you can grind all your low-leveled members up in a matter of a few fights and use the money to buy them good armor.
** This was also possible in SuikodenI after you pass through the Fortress of Kwaba. Head straight south to the Great Forest, which you normally won't head to for another few hours. It isn't possible yet to go past the first screen, but that screen alone is filled with Kobold enemies that are very easily taken out with area of effect magic like a Fire Rune (such as the one Cleo normally has). You don't even have to grind that long to get your characters a significant EXP boost, which makes the next few dungeons rather easy. Making it even better, there's a town just before the dungeon itself with an inn that you can use to recharge when you run out of fire magic.

* In ''VideoGame/PersonaQ'', oddly, you're most likely to get more experience from the final floor of the third labyrinth rather than the death trap in the final floor of the ''fourth'' one.

* Lion Heart Castle/Lion King Castle (Usually abbreviated as LHC, regardless of region) in MapleStory. It is one of several Party-Play zones in the game that gives extra experience if more people are in your party. During 2X events (where the experience given by monsters is doubled) it's not uncommon to find almost every map with at least one party grinding. Killing one mob can give hundreds of thousands of experience, which you'll need at higher levels.

Added DiffLines:

** There is also an underground cavern in the Tomb of Giants area, just before you encounter the boss Gravelord Nito, where small skeletons respawn without needing to visit a bonfire whenever you walk into the water at the bottom of the cavern. The skeletons are easy to kill (although because this is ''Dark Souls'' they can still pose a danger if you're not careful and they mob you) and, while they don't drop a lot of souls on their own, you can fight so many of them at once it racks up quickly. Even better, they're one of the very few enemies in the game to also drop Humanity, so this is an excellent place to grind especially if you're trying to gain ranks in the Chaos Servant covenant.

** There's also Lake Dohr and Bahamut's Lair, at least in the [[NintendoDS DS]] [[VideoGameRemake remake]]. Even better than the Undersea Cave, though you can't reach them until you get the third airship, the Invincible. Unfortunately, Lake Dohr can't be accessed after you defeat [[MakingASplash Leviathan]], however Bahamut's Lair remains open as long as you need it. [[NintendoHard You're going to need it.]]

** There's also the Sunken Gelnika, a bonus dungeon that you can access once you get the Submarine.

** There's a room in Booster Tower that features an infinite row of enemies walking down a flight of stairs. By standing in their path, you can get an unlimited number of battles without moving. Once you are strong enough to beat them in one hit, a turbo controller and a rubber band on the A button will get you all the way to level 30.

to:

** Some tricks exploit the fact that when you get Game Over, your money and items are reset back to your last save point but your experience and levels are not. There's a spot in Land's End where you can buy an invincibility star power-up for a hefty price right before a roomful of enemies, which lets you clear them out in seconds, almost always granting you a level up or two. Proceed a bit further and lose to Belome. Your coins, the star salesman, and the enemies are back, but the extra levels you got from them are retained. Rinse and repeat as needed.

Some Peninsulas need not be a specific physical location in a game world -- a ''Temporal'' Peninsula of Power Leveling is a specific timeframe during which it is vastly conducive to gaining experience -- be it a specific part of the story where a GuestStarPartyMember joins you (or the RequiredPartyMember leaves) or perhaps during the area before a boss (often a LoadBearingBoss) falls, or even a specific repeatable fight that is only available for a limited time (in the long term). These specific types of areas are very conducive to power leveling, but have one thing in common -- after a certain story event, they become LostForever.

*** Also on the Black Omen, there's a room that generates six alien-type enemies not seen anywhere else in the game. Four of these enemies can have Magic Capsules Charmed off of them. What makes this truly excellent is that these enemies have no attacks whatsoever except an instant-death counter... that only triggers after a ''physical attack''. Thus you can charm 4 Magic Capsules, escape, leave the area, come back, charm another 2 Capsules, rinse and repeat until every character's Magic stat is maxed out. The only downside is that once you ''do'' kill these enemies, they don't come back. ''[[LostForever Ever]]''.

* In ''VideoGameLufiaAndTheFortressOfDoom'', as soon as you get the ability to control a ship, you can quite easily go out of your way and fight monsters you wouldn't fight for several levels, gaining much more experience than expected. It also helps that you can reach Frederia by ship and obtain much more powerful equipment than you would be expected to have.
