** A lengthy example with the increasingly fantastical cookie-generation devices: first you can buy extra mouse cursors, then cookie-baking grandmas, followed by cookie farms, factories, mines, and banks (all mundane things, but not normally used for cookies. After that, it gets weirder: ancient cookie temples, cookie-wizards, rocketships to the cookie planet, alchemy labs (to turn gold into cookies), portals to the Cookieverse, time machines, and antimatter condensers. And the final, most powerful cookie constructor is... a prism. Maybe the developer is a Music/PinkFloyd fan.

** Golden Cookies have about a 1% chance of starting a "Cookie Chain," where you can gain a lot of cookies by quickly clicking a bunch of golden ones as they appear. Also, as an EasterEgg, golden cookies will sometimes display a nonsensical message like "Dough elasticity halved for 66 seconds!" But the chance of this occurring is so low (about 1 in 50,000) that you'll almost certainly never see any of them unless you spend several months clicking on golden cookies (even with all the upgrades that make them appear more often, they show up only once every two minutes on average).

* BreakingTheFourthWall: The "Cookie-dunker" achievement. To get it, you must get enough other achievements to reach a certain milk percentage, then ''resize the window or zoom in'' until the cookie ends up in the milk. Another is the "Tiny Cookie" achievement - you have to click the tiny cookie icon on the stats screen next to any of the "number baked" listing.

** The 2.0 version subverts it by giving even more synergy bonuses to everything

** Not like regular golden cookies don't have their own combo. Once again, there isn't much to do but cross your fingers, pray to the RandomNumberGod and try to sync them so as to make the most of your time, and this time, there's the added difficulty of having baked enough cookies through clicking, and having to click as fast as you can for a full 20 seconds, but if you get a Frenzy, have bought the click-boosting mouse upgrades, and manage to get a Clicking Frenzy while the original's still going on, you can rack up positively gigantic amounts of cookies.

* LensmanArmsRace: Each building produces several times more cookies than its predecessor. 100 cookie farms full upgraded will net you 8,000 cookies per second. 100 Factories fully upgraded will net you 22,400 cookies per second.

Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: There's a shadow achievement "True Neverclick" for getting to a million cookies without ever clicking on the cookie. Since you need 100 cookies to buy your first upgrade (after which you can just idle) this requires either patient use of Golden Cookies or good old-fashioned cheating, which is ''also'' a shadow achievement. In addition, naming your bakery 'Orteil' will net the shadow achievement "God Complex".
