* ''Roleplay/DefeatTheGodmodder'' uses this to signal that something really interesting is happening. The delicacies and little fiddly bits of the rules change almost daily anyways, but the big ones are subject to change if something cool enough happens.

** The "Laws" in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', complete with Judges who penalize you for breaking them. This can result in either lost bonuses like EXP or AP (yellow card) or being immediately transported to jail (red card). If the protagonist ever gets the red card, it's an automatic game over.

Two: The game will impose a penalty for violating the rules. The ''ShinMegamiTenseiNocturne'' example takes this form.

* ''VideoGame/DarkCloud'' has floors called "Limited Zones" that place various restrictions on you, such as only allowing you to use one character or causes your weapons to ''lose'' experience when used rather than gaining it.
** ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2'' brings this back with the sealed floors: Red forbids you from using Max, Blue forbids you from using Monica, and White forbids you from using any healing items. Thankfully, if you destroy all of the monsters on a sealed floor, the seal goes away. (Although, for some floors, this is easier said than done.)

* In ''ShinMegamiTenseiNocturne'', the Ahriman battle (assuming you aren't going the Shijima route) has two parts: In the first part, Ahriman challenges you to a game and imposes a different set of rules for each round of the fight. Any character who violates these rules is instantly killed. The second part is a straight up fight.
** In ''{{Persona 4}}'', [[spoiler:Adachi]] has a floor in his dungeon where he forbids you to encounter any Shadows while making your way to the exit. If you do, he promptly kicks you out of the dungeon.
* The "Laws" in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', complete with Judges who penalize you for breaking them.
* This is half the gimmick of the Glitz Pit from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.

* In ''{{Recettear}}'' sometimes special circumstances are applied to each level of a dungeon while you're exploring them. They can be helpful (e.g. doubling your attack or defence power or revealing the map, increasing your speed), neutral (e.g. supplying the aforementioned benefits to both you and the monsters) or negative (e.g. only applying benefits to monsters, disabling the map). The very last dungeon only applies negative effects and does so on every level.
