Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'', hurting and/or killing innocents (or even criminals when a non-lethal option is available) will lower your [[KarmaMeter reputation]]. Once it drops low enough, random people on the streets will call 911 simply upon ''seeing'' you, forcing you to run from the police constantly.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'':
** Be enough of a dick to the people you're trying to make friends with and you can reverse their Social Links. You lose all your Social Link bonuses and have to make amends. Keep being a dick after you've reversed the link and you can break it, preventing you from fusing Personae of that Arcana at all until you fix it - which can take a very long time. The easiest way to do this is to date multiple girls at once. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, you have to date all of them in order to complete their links and complete the Compendium. GuideDangIt does not even begin to cover it.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Complete certain requirements in ''Golden'' and you can get a new ending... [[spoiler:in which you first refuse to name the killer after you've figured them out, and then destroy the only evidence linking them to their crimes.]] The result? [[spoiler:The protagonist is now trapped in a controlling platonic relationship with the killer ''for the rest of his life'', an innocent man is convicted of murders he never committed, and Inaba is trapped in a permanent fog.]] Want to be a dick? Congrats - you got the ending that is worse than the bad ending!

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', it's normally impossible to use lethal techniques or weaponry on staff members in Mother Base. However, it is still possible to knock them out and carry or throw them around. Just remember they ''can'' still die, and if they do, [[NonstandardGameOver the game ends in failure on the spot]] with Kaz and Ocelot chewing you out severely.

* ''VideoGame/UltimaVIII: Pagan'' would dispense with the whole [[KarmaMeter concept of gauging the player's morality]]. Instead, if the Avatar was ever caught stealing, causing bodily harm or committing any other misdemeanor in the city, he would [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin promptly]] see the town sorcerer teleport to the crime scene and ([[LudicrousGibs graphically]]) blow him up. No trial, no defense, no escape. [[CutsceneIncompetence There was absolutely nothing the player could do but accept his fate]].

** [[TheMatrix Yet his strength and his speed are still based in a world that is built on rules]]. Because of that, [[http://www.it-he.org/u8_beren.htm he will never be as strong]], [[http://www.it-he.org/u8_hang.htm or as fast]], as The Avatar can be.

->''"Everybody just wants to be told in a video game that you’re great, no matter what you do. If you slaughter everybody — you killed the maids, you killed the old people, you killed the beggars — you’re great, here’s a medal, you’re a hero. We decided that sounds psychotic.

** At least in that series, you can at least warp to the stairs, or use a Trawl Orb to pick up the items near the stairs ([[{{Nerf}} Except in]] ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity Gates to Infinity]]''. ''[[VideoGame/ChocobosDungeon Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon]]'' doesn't offer that luxury. In exchange, you can only steal one rare item (and that's the only way to unlock the Thief class, by the way), Mog (as Dungeon Hero X) is the strongest enemy in the dungeon who doesn't scale above Chocobo's level, and can be overleveled against (but even then, beware [[ThatOneAttack Mog Beam X]]), and you can't just trawl it to the stairs.
