** ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' was pretty bad about its cheating AI, mainly due to the fact that while players had Ki or Stamina drain for transformations, the AI (who only transform when a mission makes them do so) never run out; this is bad in late game quests that liberally throw Super Saiyans at you [[OhCrap who have infinite Ki and know how to use it.]] While they suffered ArtificialStupidity due to willingly wasting their Stamina on evasive skills and vanishes, they also often packed Super Armor, effectively making them unflinching no matter how hard you hit them as they smack you back.
*** ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'' removed super armor and infinite Ki, and let you see the enemy's stamina and ki at all times for further assurance that they're not cheating. Except they do anyway; when fighting Frieza and Cooler at the end of the Namek Saga, ''their Stamina regen is jacked up significantly'' to the point that even the FinalBoss can't compare. Meanwhile, the AI can perfectly read player inputs, know when you're holding a button to prepare a Super or Ultimate Skill, and abuse Vanishes, Stamina Breaks and Burst Dashes with perfect timing to the point that using any Ultimate that isn't mostly risk-free will instantly have them Stamina Break you if you didn't break them beforehand.

** James T. Kirk is noted as being the only one to ever beat the scenario, and he's known to have cheated to do so. In a novel that went into how several of the crew dealt with the scenario, Kirk justified his own cheating by pointing out that the computer cheated first.

** Falkner's underleveled Pidgeotto at the Violet City Gym in GSC and HGSS, though it is usually less problematic for players than most other examples.

** Before that you have to fight The Ogre. The first match against them was already a ludicrous DifficultySpike, now imagine doing that again; except now they have infinite TP to spam moves such as Killer Fields (strongest grass-type dribble), Ground Quake (one of the strongest shot blockers, comparable to Kabeyama's The Mountain), and High Voltage (strongest wind-type save hissatsus).

** Neo Raimon, Team Endou, and Team Kidou are even worst here. The team you're facing have alternate versions of Inazuma Japan players, they have a larger GP and TP pool, plus they have some of the most powerful moves in the game and they're fully evolved. For example, Neo Raimon Hiroto has Tenkuu Otoshi V3, Boost Glider V3, True Planet Buster, and Chowaza! (A skill that powers up moves at the price of more TP). Luckily, this is at least mitigated by the fact that most of the moves used by these alternate versions are some of the most TP consuming moves in the game (sometimes even more thanks to Chowaza!), and they only have two (none for Team Endou and Team Kidou) subtitutes.

* Invoked in the [[KillEmAll No Mercy]] route of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. The final boss of the route [[spoiler:Sans]] knows about your ability to reset, and therefore knows that they can only hold you off until you get past them. That doesn't mean they're going to make it easy for you. They screw with the game's mechanics to make their battle [[SNKBoss as frustrating as possible]] in the hopes of making you either RageQuit or reset.
