* Many levels in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series follow a ping-pong or velvet rope space-filling path, sometimes enforcing this with instant-death [[GravityBarrier fall barriers]]. Examples include ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved''[='s=] "Pillar of Autumn", "Truth and Reconciliation", "Assault on the Control Room", Keyes"; ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}''[='s=] "Delta Halo" and "Uprising"/"Great Journey"; and ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}''[='s=] "Sierra 117" and "Tsavo Highway". Often, these are used to facilitate DynamicLoading. ''Combat Evolved''[='s=] "The Library" and its descendants are Intestinal Tract levels with constant Flood ambushes and other hazards. And ''3''[='s=] infamous "Cortana" mission is a near-literal intestinal tract, complete with "sphincdoors".

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'':
** The tunnels of Ape Atoll in "Monkey Madness" just winding and winding, with traps and hostile creatures at every turn.
** Optional in the Ourania Runecrafting complex: There's a short and straight path to the altar camped by hostiles, or you can take a long winding path [[ConvectionSchmonvection over a pool of magma]] that bypasses them.

* The Chronicles of the Sword section of ''SoulCalibur 3'' had a lot of ping-pong paths. This is made more annoying by the space between the paths frequently being lawn or other terrain that should be entirely traversable, but you still have to take the long route.

Added DiffLines:

** Some puzzle rooms in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle Of Ages]] feature a pitch black room containing an invisible Space Filling Path over a BottomlessPit. While [[TrialAndErrorGameplay Trial and Error]] could be used to solve these rooms, the intended way is to generate [[BlockPuzzle Blocks]] with the Cane of Somaria. If the block falls into the BottomlessPit, there is no path there, and you should try another direction.
*** The Eyeglass Library has books giving directions through the invisible maze to the next book. Until you read the book, there is no path forward, and once you read the book, the path behind you disappears. The final book has nine instructions, which, if you forget them, can be replaced by the Cane of Somaria as above.

* Many outdoor locations in ''NeverwinterNights2'' are like this -- see [[http://gamebanshee.com/neverwinternights2/walkthrough/mountgalardrym.php this map]] for an {{egregious}} example.

* ''JetForceGemini''. Multiple levels must be revisited to collect every single one of the furry innocent civilians. Who are very vulnerable to any enemy fire. So blow five minutes blasting through yet another reiteration of the same level and a giant rocket blows Squishy Chewbacca to kingdom come? Start over, man. And the pathways through the levels cross over and loop and wrap around each other in dozens of various and differing ways. All not accessible all the time because of various abilities of the three main characters. Long story short, you're going to be seeing the same engine room a LOT. And yes, the enemies will always respawn.

** Fortunately, there are also shortcuts tucked away that allow knowledgeable patrons, and employees, to quickly jump from one part of the path to another "distant" part.

* ''DevilMayCry'' 1 and 3 both have examples of this trope. In the first game, there's tentacles trying to get you while in the third game, there literally is an Intestinal Tract.
