* In ''Head Panic'', when you spell B-O-N-U-S, the stage immediately clears and you proceed to a BonusStage. The letters dropped by enemies rapidly and randomly cycle through the alphabet, and they're worth 500 points individually whether or not they contribute to the word.

* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'', K-O-N-G appears in every level. Collect all four letters to win an extra life. In ''Donkey Kong Land'', collecting K-O-N-G instead saves the game. In ''Donkey Kong Country Returns'', the K-O-N-G letters instead grant a token, and getting all the tokens from a single world opens up a BrutalBonusLevel.
