*** "Crazy" in the sequel, with lots and lots and lots and lots of sliding block puzzles in ''very'' tight quarters. The only saving graces you get are that there's no official time limit and if you just want to beat the level you only have to complete four of the puzzles to proceed (and you can pick and choose which ones you want to complete). If you're looking for a high score, though, you have to complete ''all'' 26 of them with no mistakes, while racing against a logic gate timer that locks you out of some multiplier flags after 10 minutes. [[spoiler:Even worse, you have to do it ''twice'', since a different version shows up as the final level.]]

* GeniusBonus: The "[=eProm=]", at first glance, sounds like a typical attempt to make something sound digital by adding the letter "e" to the front. However, it gains a new level of hilarity once you know that there's a certain type of memory chip called "EEPROM".

*** "The Village", which involves navigating around a dozen Chip clones through a series of obstacles, with the ultimate goal of freeing the real Chip from a trap so he can reach the exit. The difficulty lies in the fact that there's no obvious order in which to complete each task, and the goals are often set up in such a way that they require sacrificing the Chip clone involved once it's done. Because all of the Chip clones move at the same time, even one mistake can cost you a valuable clone, and more often than not it will require you to start the entire level over again.

** And what's your reward for completing that block-pushing nightmare? ''Spirals'', the ''very next level'', is one of the most notoriously difficult. In case a maze filled with ever-increasing numbers of random walkers wasn't bad enough, some Microsoft versions of Chip's Challenge have a [[http://chipschallenge.wikia.com/wiki/Spirals_corruption corrupt level file]], making the level nearly UnwinnableByMistake.

*** [=CCLP3's=] second half is often regarded as '''nothing''' but That One Level back to back to back to back [[OverlyLongGag to back to back]]. Special mention goes to ''You Can't Teach an Old Frog New Tricks'' ([=CCLP3=] 144) for being harder than the already ridiculously difficult levels surrounding it. Solving it requires setting up no less than 5 rooms ''flawlessly'' so that one tooth monster can navigate through them in sequence to release Chip from a trap, so said tooth monster can control a toggle switch and then be trapped on ice so Chip can walk to the exit. Interestingly, in playing back the solution in Tile World, the focus switches to that of the tooth monster when Chip enters the trap. Ande like all fan-made level packs with more than 144 levels, [=CCLP3=] treats this one as a DiscOneFinalDungeon only, so you'll still have to tackle five more levels, including the formidable duo ''Suspended Animation'' (146) and ''Avalanche'' (147).
*** [=CCLP2=] has levels that rely on unintuitive tile placements and a bigger focus on booby traps and random-working hazards and enemies, resulting in levels like ''Block Away!'', ''Exit Chip'' and ''Blocked Trap'' where it's almost impossible to foresee a deadly trap on the first attempt. This reaches its zenith (nadir for the less experienced players) with the 93th level, ''Exit Chip'', which does a ''deliberate'' attempt to troll players in every possible opportunity. Even then, there are more traditional levels that are still infamous for their difficulty, such as ''Mazed In'' ([[SchizophrenicDifficulty which for some reason is put as the 12th level]]), ''Warehouse II'', the two ''Oracle'' levels and ''Cloner's Maze''.

** Level 73, ''Morton''. You're '''not''' going to beat it if you can't trap the teeth within a spot from which it can't bother you anymore.

** Level 131, the aptly-titled ''Totally Unfair'', which requires you to memorize the layout of a previous level, titled ''Totally Fair'', and do the puzzle part of it while effectively blind.
