->''You win! Perfect!''
-->-- '''Announcer''', ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''

In {{Fighting Game}}s, if you [[CurbStompBattle manage to defeat an opponent without taking any damage yourself]], you'll get a caption to appear on the screen, acknowledging your awesomeness.

Games that bother with [[ScoringPoints points]] will usually give you points for it, but it's not necessary. It's something of a BraggingRightsReward.

In {{Fighting Game}}s that have you scoring points for finishing a round, earning a Flawless Victory earns you the most points, and may be a requirement for a bonus boss fight.

CherryTapping can make the victory both flawless ''and'' humiliating. See NoCasualtiesRun for the strategy game equivalent. A NoDamageRun is what happens when you manage to make ''every'' battle a Flawless Victory.
!!Video Game Examples


[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' is the TropeNamer. The [[VideoGame/MortalKombat1 first]] and [[VideoGame/MortalKombat2 second]] games also had "Double Flawless" if the character managed to win both rounds like this. From ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 MK3]]'' on, it's only Flawless Victory, even if you win both in a row.
* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' rewarded you by giving you extra points on the end-of-round bonus. This carried into ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'', with the announcer yelling "All right, that's cool!" The ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Marvel/Tatsunoko vs. Capcom]]'' games had "Perfect", which is used by most (if not all) Capcom fighters as the terminology.
* ''PrimalRage'' uses the phrase "TOTAL DOMINATION!" There's also a second bonus "QUICK KILL!" for winning the round in ten seconds, and [[CurbStompBattle it's entirely possible to see both at once]].
* ''VideoGame/IntelligentQube'' ([[MarketBasedTitle also known as]] ''Kurushi'') has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHpgzgX1yls "PERRRRRRRRRRRRRRFECT"]] for when you complete a stage in the allotted number of 'steps' and "[[LargeHam EEEEEEXCELLENT]]" for when you do it in fewer 'steps'. Since this is the only way to add rows to the playing field, you ''have'' to get these; otherwise your playing field will slowly shrink as you make mistakes (or quickly, if a full set of blocks runs over you). Eventually this ''will'' be lethal.
** Technically, the extra row is added regardless of performance (so long as you complete the puzzle and you are not trampled). However, completing the puzzle in too many steps awards 1000 points, completing it in the allotted number of steps is worth 5000, and doing it in less is worth a whopping 10,000. More than points, these points also determine your score (or "I.Q.") at the end.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' has had it since '94. "PERFECT!" Thing is, because the KOF series is a team-based fighter, you can knock your opponent to a tiny percentage of health, lose the round, then take them out in two hits with your next character and ''still'' get a Perfect bonus. This is why "Straight" (defeating the entire enemy team with one character) gives a higher bonus than "Perfect".
* Games such as the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series, and even non-{{Fighting Game}}s like ''Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games'', will occasionally have a reward for winning a match with a perfect. ''Super Smash Bros. Melee'' in particular required you to ''[[NoDamageRun never take a hit in an entire game]]'' to get one bonus.
** Forget that, there was an achievement for never taking any damage and ''never attacking anyone.'' Good thing they were only ForTheLulz.
*** [[OneHundredPercentCompletion And there's a trophy for getting every award in the game at least once, including those.]]
*** [[AntiFrustrationFeatures Conveniently, this bonus can also be earned in stages that don't have any enemies]], such as the challenge stage where you have to get to the end of an F-Zero track on foot before time runs out (avoiding the racers as you go). This isn't as trivial as it sounds, since the game also counts your Up-B recovery moves as attacks, but it's ''far'' easier than trying to do the same in an actual battle.
* In the more recent ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' video games, you get more duel points for winning without taking damage.
* One ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' game also gave you more points for a perfect win. This was not turned for the SingleStrokeBattle mode.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fahrenheit}}'' displayed "GREAT!" caption when you won the action minigames.
* ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'' gives you extra gold in story mode for getting perfects, as well as, in some trials in ''IV'', giving hidden items for fulfilling a certain criteria.
** Even when the opponent has [[SingleStrokeBattle 0% health]]. Also odd is it happens when you have full health at the end, not from not getting hit (so regenerating from damage does give you it, but entering battle with less than full health doesn't let you get it even if you aren't hit)
* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' has "Perfect!" It also inverts it with "Excellent!" (or "Great!"), which you get by winning with 5% health or less.
* If one team kills all members of another in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' during an Arena round, without anyone on their own team dying, the scoreboard is headed with: "Flawless Victory!"
** It's also inverted for the losing team, who receives the message [[EpicFail "Flawless Defeat!"]]
*** "You didn't kill ''any'' of them!"
** There's also an achievement for defending certain levels and not letting the offensive team get any capture points. Fairly hard to do, but oh so satisfying.
* In the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', falling between fighters and [=RPG=]s, you get crazy bonuses to your Grade if you end a fight without any of your party members being damaged.
* ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' had a special subtitle if you won a match without losing a single round ("Supreme Victory", or "Awesome Victory" if you finish the match with a [[FinishingMove Fatality]] or [[CherryTapping Humiliation]]) and had the standard "Perfect!" if you won without taking any damage.
* In ''VideoGame/MischiefMakers'', beating a boss without taking damage is the way to get that stage's [[GottaCatchEmAll Gold Gem]].
* The ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' games will have the announcer shout "GREAT!" while the same word displays on the screen if you avoid getting hit during a round. If you avoid getting hit in both rounds of a match (or if both of your characters have full health when winning a tag battle), the second round will have "GREATEST!" instead.
* ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter'' opts for "EXCELLENT" if you can score a no-damage victory.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bemani}}'' games often have some form of this, usually with one for a Full Combo (hitting every note with a satisfactory judgment) and a perfect run:
** In ''VideoGame/BeatmaniaIIDX'' from ''10th Style'' onwards, if you clear a song hitting every note with a GOOD judgment or better, the judgment line will light upward and you'll get a "FULL COMBO" caption. The song will also be marked with a flashing "FULL COMBO" caption by your score record data on the song selection menu. If you hit every note with a GREAT or better, this is replaced with a gold "PERFECT", although the flash at the end of the song still only says "FULL COMBO".
** Same with newer versions of ''VideoGame/PopNMusic'', but with "NO BAD!", as well as "PERFECT!" if you get all Greats (or higher, if playing on a mode with COOL judgement enabled).
** In ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'' games starting with ''DDR X'', getting a GREAT! or better on every step causes a green light-up effect at the end with "FULL COMBO" over it and a green circular mark; both the text and the mark are displayed next to your grade. Meanwhile, getting a PERFECT!! or MARVELOUS!! on every step nets you a "PERFECT FULL COMBO!" with a gold flash and a gold mark, and the announcer yells "Perfect Full Combo!" at the Results screen. Additionally, your combo is displayed in gold instead of the usual green if your combo has consisted of all PERFECT!! or MARVELOUS!! so far, and has a white glow for all MARVELOUS!!. Previous versions also had various recognitions of such feats:
*** Up through ''DDR 3rd Mix'', the game would award a [[RankInflation SSS]] grade for a Perfect Full Combo, and the [[AnnouncerChatter announcer]] would say "Oh god! Oh god!" at the Results screen. A Full Combo earned you a or a SS or S depending on your ratio of Perfects.
*** ''4th Mix'' changed this to a AA for a Perfect Full Combo and A for Full Combo.
*** 5th Mix changed it yet again to AAA and AA respectively.
*** ''DDRMAX'' (6th Mix) removed the Full Combo requirement for a AA, and the announcer quote for a AAA was changed to "Can I call you a dancing master?"
*** ''[=SuperNOVA=]'' had a white swirly effect under your grade for a Full Combo.
*** ''[=SuperNOVA=] 2'' changed the requirement for a AAA to simply 99% of the maximum score, but added the "Perfect Full Combo!!" and gold mark, and a darker yellow mark for Full Combo.
*** The real question is: Do games with PFC recognition also recognize a Marvelous Full Combo? [[http://i.imgur.com/MTy23.jpg Yes they do.]]
** ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'' can have the following display next to your grade:
*** - "Full Fantastic Combo" with a trophy above it for getting every single step "Fantastic!"
*** - "One Excellent" with a flag above it for getting one "Excellent" and all the rest "Fantastic!"
*** - "Single Digit Excellents" with a plaque above it for getting 2-9 Excellents and all the rest Fantastic
*** - "Full Excellent Combo" with a plaque above it for getting every step Excellent or better
*** - "One Great" with a flag above it for getting one "Great" and all the rest Excellent or better
*** - "Single Digit Greats" with a ribbon above it for getting 2-9 Greats and all the rest Excellent or better
*** - "Full Great Combo" with a ribbon above it for getting every step Great or better
*** All of the above also require that you not drop any hold or roll arrows.
*** In addition, once you're 20% into the song, your combo will glow blue if you're getting all Fantastics, or gold if you're getting all Excellent or better.
** Both ''VideoGame/GuitarFreaks'' and ''VideoGame/DrumMania'' write "FULL COMBO" over your grade and give you a score bonus for hitting every note with a GOOD or better. A GREAT or better on every note earns you a SS, and all [=PERFECTs=] earn you a SS with "EXCELLENT" in place of the usual Full Combo text.
** ''VideoGame/{{jubeat}}'' has the usual "FULL COMBO" acknowledgment for hitting every note, while hitting every note with perfect timing triggers a brief flashy animation that culminates in plastering "EXCELLENT" all over the [[ScoreScreen results screen]], which also replaces your grade.
*** Do note, however, that pass/fail is based on score; if you achieve a Full Combo but fail to achieve the point quota, the game will [[MoodWhiplash recognize your full combo and then fail you immediately afterwards]].
** ''VideoGame/SoundVoltex'' acknowledges completing a song with no ERROR judgments as an "ULTIMATE CHAIN", and a gold flash ripples up the track from the judgment line. Additionally, completing a song with all CRITICAL judgments nets you a "PERFECT ULTIMATE CHAIN" (or simply "PERFECT" in ''Sound Voltex II'').
** ''VideoGame/ReflecBeat'' gives you a 100-point bonus if you clear the song with a full combo. (For reference, each note is worth up to 3 points barring the Just Reflec bonus, and charts generally have around 500-800 notes at higher difficulties.) However, this is potentially a GameBreaker, so this was {{Nerf}}ed in sequels to be worth only 50 points. Said sequels also have a 25-point bonus for getting only one miss, and a 10-point bonus for getting only two misses.
* In ''VideoGame/CryptoftheNecrodancer'', defeating a boss stage in All Zones mode without taking damage and while staying in rhythm of the stage's song by not missing a beat grants one of three chests to select from as a reward before heading to the next zone
* ''VideoGame/{{Cytus}}'' rewards a perfect score of 1,000,000 with a "Million Master" animation. You can also get 100% TP[[note]]an alternate scoring system based around a specific type of Perfect[[/note]], but no specific fanfare is provided for such performances.
* ''VideoGame/GrooveCoaster'' grants a "No Miss" award if the chart is cleared with no Misses. Doing this ''and'' hitting all of the hidden Ad-Lib notes will result in a "Full Chain" award. From ''Groove Coaster 3: Link Fever'' onwards, the game will also hand out a "Perfect" reward for getting the perfect score of 1 million points.
--> '''Linka:''' ''(on a No Miss)'' "You didn't make ''any'' mistakes!" \\
'''Linka:''' ''(on a Full Chain)'' "A Full Chain! Well done!" \\
'''Linka:''' ''(on a Perfect, with [[OhCrap a surprised look on her face]])'' "Perfect?! That was incredible!"
* ''VideoGame/LoveLiveSchoolIdolFestival'' acknolwedges a Full Combo with the appropriate flashing text and S-rank combo rewards. Unfortunately, while all-Perfect runs are entirely possible, the game not only doesn't recognize them, it's perfectly possible to still get a grade lower than S if your cards' attributes aren't high enough; in fact, it's common for beginner players who came in from other rhythm games to get all Perfects and still get a C [[EarlyGameHell because their starting cards are extremely weak]].
* ''VideoGame/{{maimai}}'':
** "FULL COMBO!" -- clear the chart without missing any notes.
** "ALL PERFECT!" -- clear the chart with all Perfects.[[note]]Note that while this implies an Achievement Rate of at least 100%, it is possible to go over even without an AP by hitting Break notes accurately enough to get 2550 or 2600 points on each one.[[/note]]
** "100% SYNCHRONIZED!" -- clear a chart in a multiplayer Sync Play with a Sync percentage (that is, percentage of notes in which all players are within one judge rank of each other on a particular note) of 100%.
* ''VideoGame/TetrisTheGrandMaster'' and its sequel: On getting the [[TitleDrop Grand Master]] rank, you get [[{{Engrish}} "YOU ARE GRAND MASTER!"]]
* In ''VideoGame/CaveStory'', defeating the boss of the Waterway without taking damage will net you the Alien Badge.
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' series:
** In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia Order of Ecclesia]]'', defeating a boss without taking damage will reward you with a medal.
** In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood Rondo of Blood]]'' (and the ''Dracula X Chronicles'' remake), if you defeat the boss with a full life bar, you get an extra life. Contrary to popular belief, you CAN take damage, as long as you get a meat/ice cream (depending on who you're playing as) before the end of the stage.
* In the Story Mode of ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', one of the potential DP bonuses (DP being what you use to move around the map and having more of it leading to bonuses) in certain fights is to clear the fight without taking any damage. This bonus is even called a "Flawless Victory."
** There's also a milder version, "Flawless HP Victory", where you must not take any ''HP'' damage - you're allowed to take Bravery hits.
* In ''MuramasaTheDemonBlade'', winning a battle without losing any HP will earn you a "Completely Unscathed" bonus, which grants you a small extra percentage of experience points.
* ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger'' grants this sort of bonus not only for not taking any damage during a Pokémon encounter, but also for capturing a Pokémon with an unbroken line (i.e. the Pokémon can't attempt to break the styler line by moving through it). Keep in mind that even if you get hit by an attack that does 0 damage due to damage reduction, you still lose the "No Damage" bonus.
** Speaking of Pokémon, In VideoGame/PokemonStadium 1 and 2 if you defeat an opponent in the Stadium without any of your Pokémon fainting in battle, you get an extra continue. This is especially helpful if you lose to a later opponent.
*** ''Pokemon Battle Revolution'' is the same, but you also get additional Poke Coupons on top of the additional continues.
* The ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' franchise, especially GHWT and beyond, award extra in-game cash for a perfect performance (which is even mentioned in the newspaper cutouts in ''[=GH2=]'': "Perfect Performance from at ").
** Most GH games give a gold star result (usually 5-star, although 4-gold-stars and 3-gold-stars are possible) for hitting all the gems. In [=GH5=], getting a full combo (No errors)[[note]]An error is defined as any action that breaks your combo. For singers, it is any result that isn't "Excellent". For Instrumentalists, it's missing a note or playing the wrong one.[[/note]] gives you an extra star on top of what you have (which will ALWAYS be 5 stars) in addition to turning them gold.
* ''VideoGame/RockBand'' has the "flawless" title that only appears when someone gets 100% (not necessarily a full combo). That game also has gold stars (in Expert difficulty only), but it's score based so you don't need a full combo for it (and can technically fail to get it even if you get a full combo, because basically these depend on your score; the cutoff for gold stars is the standard Expert cutoff for 5 stars, plus 50% of that).
** What's worse on both of these is that the Drummer must use two different scoring strategies (or "Overdrive Paths") - one for single player, a different one for multiplayer. The difference? Every fill removes some notes from the chart, decreasing the possible combo. At the same time, a fill must be played (complete with the crash at the end) to activate Overdrive, and they'll keep appearing as long as you have 50% Overdrive without being in Overdrive. This means five drummers can get 100% notes hit, never break their combo, and have completely different note streaks on the same song.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Unreal}}'' series has this.
** Winning a round of Onslaught, CTF, or Bombing Run in ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004'' with no points scored by the other team gives this announcement. The inverse is called "Humilliating Defeat" in 2004. In the single player mode, it's an achievement.
** Winning a Warfare round in ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'' without taking any damage to your core gets the announcer to say this.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' has "Perfect!"
** The game only checks if the winner has full health, not if he actually got hit or not. Thus, you can still get this bonus with Ragna even if you get hit, as Ragna can heal himself for an extremely small amount every time he hits with a some attacks (unless it's his Unlimited form). His HP Draining abilities are so weak though, you may as well have not gotten hit.
*** However, due to chip damage being present, Ragna is the only character that can block moves without using the barrier gauge and still get a perfect.
* Getting one in a ''Franchise/{{Grandia}}'' game results in whoever delivered the last blow saying a different victory quote than normal, and in ''[[VideoGame/GrandiaIII III]]'', a slight recovery of everyone's SP.
* Many {{Shoot Em Up}}s will yield a "No Miss Bonus" for clearing a stage without dying.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', if you drain a boss's spell card's corresponding section of the boss's LifeMeter without losing lives or bombing, you get a Spell Card Bonus and the spell card is counted as "captured." However, if you're playing as the Marisa-Nitori team in ''Subterranean Animism'', due to Nitori's bomb mechanic (which instead of clearing out bullets grants [[InvincibilityPowerUp temporary invincibility for one hit]]) the condition is slightly different: you can still fire a bomb, as long as you don't get hit.
* At the end of each stage in ''VideoGame/PointBlank'', you get a bonus equal to your shot accuracy * 1,000. If you don't miss a shot, you get an extra 1,000 points. Interestingly, you can get over 100% accuracy (as a result of shooting through a window to another target), but you only get the 1,000-point bonus if you don't miss; if your accuracy is, for instance, 150%, but you miss at all, your accuracy bonus will only be 1,500 instead of 2,500.
* In the ''DJMAX'' series (except for ''Trilogy'' and ''Technika''), getting 100% judgments will yield an S grade. In ''Technika'', this is accompanied by a "Perfect Play" graphic next to the song disc.
* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' awards a hefty points bonus for completing a fight challenge without the enemies landing a single hit on you.
** And this is a necessary prerequisite for the series' own definition of "Flawless", which is to begin and end the fight in a single continuous sequence of actions without any hesitation, noncombat movement, or getting hit.
* In the ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' series, winning an exhibition match in a complete shutout with at least 5 goals earns you an [[RankInflation S rank]]. This is the only way to get an S -- if the other team scores even a single goal, the best you can do is an A rank (though thankfully you can replay exhibition matches as much as you please if you want the S).
* ''VideoGame/XenophageAlienBloodsport''. Not only will the announcer say "Perfect!" for a flawless victory, but when you are on the receiving end of one, he will call you "Pathetic!"
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has achievements for completing origin stories or the game without anyone dying in combat.
* ''VideoGame/WaveRace 64'' rewards players finishing in first with no penalties for steering on the wrong side of the speed buoys with the [[LargeHam the announcer]] screaming "Banzai!" as they cross the finish line.
* ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar 3'' has the "I'm a Beast!" medal, which requires you to complete all 12 waves of Beast in a row without failing on each of the four difficulties.
* Both ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' games have two of these, one for winning without taking damage, and one for defeating all three opposing demons in one round. Both net you extra Macca (money).
* ''VideoGame/HatsuneMikuProjectDIVA'' gives you a rainbow "PERFECT" on the results screen for getting a COOL or FINE on every note.
* In ''Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip'', if you win a match without allowing your opponent to win a game, you get credited with an "Epic Victory", which gives you extra loyalty points and shop credits. Taken further, winning a match without allowing your opponent to even score a point makes the "Epic Victory" icon gold when you walk up to the opponent to challenge them for a rematch.
* In ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy'', you're credited with a "Perfect Chain" if you complete a song without getting a BAD or a MISS, and an "All Critical" (with the score [[{{Cap}} maxed out]] at 7999999[[note]]normally; completing a song without any abilities or items equipped on your party nets you a bonus of 2 million, for a full maximum of 9999999 points[[/note]]) if you get all {{Critical|Hit}}s on a song.
** Also present in ''Curtain Call'', though it gives the full 9,999,999 regardless of your abilities/items, or lack thereof.
* ''[[VideoGame/DonPachi DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu]]'' awards a score bonus of ''5 billion'' points for having a Maximum Bonus active at the end of the 2nd loop, doubled to ''10 billion'' if you also faced and defeated the TrueFinalBoss Hibachi. Note that you lose your Maximum Bonus if you get hit or use a bomb, and your last chance to get it back is at the start of the penultimate boss battle. Therefore this is essentially a bonus for a flawless victory against the penultimate boss ''and'' the final boss.
* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', a Perfection medal is earned by winning a multiplayer match with at least 15 kills and no deaths.
* In ''VideoGame/GemCraft Labyrinth'', defeating a map without letting any enemy touch your gem gives an xp boosting medal for that round.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Divekick}}'', if one player has four wins and the other player has zero, the next round starts with a "FRAUD DETECTION WARNING". Should the winning player win this round, securing a perfect match, the game blares out "FRAUD DETECTED"--in other words, [[InvertedTrope the loser is declared a fraud]]. This is a reference to players in the UsefulNotes/FightingGameCommunity who are hyped up only to end up on the losing end of a CurbStompBattle, and thus are labeled as frauds.
** Inverted in another way should the fraud candidate [[HeroicSecondWind turn it around]] and end up beating the former dominator; after getting the score to 4-4, the final round starts with a "CHOKE DETECTION WARNING", with similar "CHOKE DETECTED" should the former underdog win. Unlike with frauds, a choke doesn't get stamped with a "Fraud 100% Certified" label; "choking" is a sports term for someone who had a strong early lead losing anyway.
* ''Film/JurassicPark Warpath'': [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Flawless!"]]
* ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'': "*character* wins! PERFECT!"
* ''VideoGame/AnUntitledStory'' features a plenty of heart doors which open only if you approach them with a full LifeMeter, housing rewards behind them. Naturally, you will only find them at the end of the {{Death Course}}s which are guaranteed to hurt inexperienced adventurers.
* ''VideoGame/OneFingerDeathPunch'': Completing a level without taking a hit gets you a bright "Perfect" medallion on the score screen. Completing a level with no misses gets you a Platinum medal on the same screen. Get ''both'' on one level and you may get a giant, [[LargeHamAnnouncer announced]], "PERFECT" when you land the final hit of the level.
* Upon achieving full combo in ''VideoGame/AikatsuPhotoOnStage'', the main character of a live show will praise the player and the result screen will show the phrase "full combo" above the combo count in the result screen. However, this does not always translate to S rank combo because combo total depends on how long the notes are pressed, which is less when they are pressed late.
* OneMustFall had news reports detailing your battles after the fact. If you did particularly well, the reporter states that if people like evenly-matched battles, he hopes they didn't pay for last night's fight. But if they like a good one-sided, masochistic pounding, they should keep an eye on your character.
!!Non-Video Game Examples

[[folder:Game Shows]]
* The Japanese game show ''Tokyo Friend Park 2'' called it a "Grand Slam" and awarded a bonus prize of a trip to either Disneyland (California) or Disneyland Paris if the contestants pull off a perfect 5-for-5 record in the main game.
** Also, in some of the individual games, a flawless victory can double the team's winnings for the round. For example, in "Quiz! Body and Brain", the team has to get 6 out of 10 questions correct to win. If they sweep the first 6 in a row, they get to continue playing and try to get the remaining 4 for a double win. Of particular note is "Flashsauraus", an arcade-like "stop the light" game where the player has to jump off a platform and hit the gigantic button with their feet. It's hard enough to get the requisite 3 out of 8 successes to win, but a perfect 8-out-of-8 run nets the team a ''triple'' win.
* Another game show example: On the Japanese quiz show ''Time Shock'', a contestant who sweeps every question in a round is rewarded with a bonus prize, complete with ConfettiDrop. In early days, this was an international vacation plus cash for a total value of 1 million yen; this was later changed to a flat-out 1 million yen in cash.
** On the revival ''Time Shock 21'', if any member of the winning team accomplished the same feat in any of the 3 endgame rounds, the team's winnings were increased to the GameShowWinningsCap of 10 million yen and the endgame ends on the spot (i.e. they no longer need to get at least half the questions right on any remaining rounds to keep their endgame winnings).
* Yet another Japanese quiz show example: On ''Series/PanelQuizAttack25'', all 4 players normally receive 10,000 yen per point at the end of the main game. But if a contestant pulls off the maximum possible win margin of 25 to 0 to 0 to 0, their winnings are doubled to 500,000 yen. This has only been achieved 12 times since the show debuted in 1975.
* ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' has its own fan criteria for a "perfect game": Win your way out of Contestant's Row with a perfect bid (with the $500 bonus for doing so), win your pricing game, win $11,000 (now $26,000) on The Big Wheel (hitting $1.00 twice), then hit the Double Showcase win (bid on your Showcase, coming within $250 of the actual price, without going over. No one has managed to pull off all four feats (usually missing the Perfect Bid or the $26K).
** Lesser variant: The Perfect Show - all six pricing games, plus the Showcase, won. This has only happened 80 times since the show's debut [[LongRunner in 1972]]
* SchlagDenRaab had occacions where this feat, 11 games won in a row for a total of 66 points, was achieved...by Stefan.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* On ''Series/{{Survivor}}'', a player achieves what is known as a "Perfect Game" if they win without having a single vote cast against them ''and'' receive a unanimous jury vote. So far, only J.T. Thomas (Tocantins) and John Cochran (Caramoan) have managed this.
* On ''Series/TheAmazingRace''. Meghan & Cheyne(15), Kisha & Jen(Unfinished Business), Ernie & Cindy(19), Rachel & Dave(20), Jason & Amy(23) and Dave & Connor(All-Stars 2014) all won the Race without ever being in danger of elimination at any point(being one of the last two teams that didn't arrive at the pit stop yet, regardless of the leg being an elimination leg or not). Rob & Brennan also did this but that was because of poorly-placed equalizer during leg 10 made it impossible for them to finished below 3rd.

* In Creator/{{Capcom}}'s ''Pinball/{{Breakshot}}'', getting a perfect Cutthroat Countdown (by sinking all the balls, then collecting the Super Jackpot) not only ''immediately'' starts another round of Cutthroat Countdown, but also increases the value of future Cutthroat Countdowns.
* ''Pinball/HighRollerCasino'' extends the duration of the Super Award you receive on "Roll 'N Win" by 50% if you can land exactly on the starting space.
* In ''[[Pinball/QBertsQuest Q*Bert's Quest]],'' hitting all three enemies before they can advance towards the pyramid awards an extra ball.
* Winning a poker hand in ''Pinball/MaverickTheMovie'' without a single discard (hitting a wrong drop target) is considered a "Perfect," and the score for that hand is tripled.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_game_%28bowling%29 300 game in Bowling]] is the most well known, although all framed pin games will have a "perfect" score.
* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9_dart_finish Nine Dart Finish]] is the perfect way to win a game of Darts.
* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_break Maximum Break]] in snooker, usually of the 147 point variety, but YMMV depending on the exact type of game.
** In snooker is is possible to score [[UpToEleven more than the maximum]] using LoopholeAbuse. This has only occurred once in tournament play.
* In 9-ball billiards, if you're ''very'' lucky, it is possible to sink the 9-ball on a break shot, known as a Break Ace. A more skillful version is the Break & Run Out, where you sink at least one ball on every shot including the break, saving the 9-ball for last, all without committing a single foul.
* Theoretically, a perfect score in a round golf is 18 (18 holes-in-on shot). Most courses are specifically designed to make this impossible. It happens far more often in Putt-Putt/mini-golf.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretariat_%28horse%29 Secretariat's]] performance in the 1973 Triple Crown series it widely viewed as a Flawless Victory. Three victories, three track records and capped with the largest margin of victory ever in a Grade 1 stakes race (31 lengths). Most records still stand ''over 40 years later''.
* [[GameOfNerds Baseball's]] "perfect game", defined as the same pitcher going all 9 with 27 up-27 down (no hits, no walks, no errors charged) is a definite flawless victory. Similarly, a pitcher going all 9 without giving up a run, called a "Shut Out", is the equivalent of a No Death Run. A "No-Hitter" is where a pitcher does not allow any hits but still allows baserunners, either via walks or errors. It is rare (only happened once officially) but completely possible to [[CrackDefeat throw a no-hitter and still lose.]]
* Due to its relatively short season, in North America football teams are the only ones with any plausible chance at a perfect season (no losses/ties), but it's still very rare. For American football, at the professional level the only NFL team to pull it off so far is the 17-0 1972 Miami Dolphins; there have been [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_undefeated_NCAA_Division_I_football_teams dozens of college teams]] to accomplish it, but their seasons are shorter (nowadays college teams schedule 12 games in a regular season plus 1[[note]]at most 2 with the introduction of the College Football Playoff in 2014[[/note]] bowl game vs. 16 NFL regular season games plus 3[[note]]Divisional Round, Conference Championship, Super Bowl[[/note]] playoff games) and the balance of competition in college football is generally more lopsided (i.e., there tend to be more "cupcake" teams in a given college team's schedule). The CFL also has one perfect season (the 1948 Calgary Stampeders). For comparison, the NBA and NHL currently have 82-game regular seasons, and MLB has 162.
* In tennis, a "Golden Set" is a set which is won without dropping a single point. This means scoring the 24 minimum points required to win a set 60, without conceding any points. In professional, top-tier tennis, this has only been accomplished seven times. In 1910, the four-time grand slam singles winner Hazel Wightman achieved a golden match in which she did not lose a point the entire match.

* Comedian Dat Phan brings up this very phrase, joking on how he was at a urinal in a public restroom when a stranger approached and asked if he knew martial arts.
--> '''Dat Phan:''' "I'm takin' a piss, man!"

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has this as the backstory for [[TheGreys Tau]] special character [[ActionGirl Commander Shadowsun]]. She wiped out an entire [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranid]] splinter fleet without losing a single ship, even though she's a Fire Caste (ground army) commander and therefore had no experience of space combat at the time. [[MaryTzu Yep]].

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2006-04-17 Ellen sings a song perfectly on a karaoke machine]] and the remark that appears with her perfect score is this.

* In the first battle of the Spanish-American War, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Commodore Dewey managed to lead the U.S. Navy into defeating the entire Spanish fleet stationed in Manila Bay without a single American casualty.]]
** No such luck for the combined American North Atlantic Squadron and Flying Squadron, which faced a Spanish squadron at Santiago De Cuba. One American sailor died of heat stroke, in [[CurbStompBattle return for the entire Spanish squadron being destroyed as they attempted to make a dash for the sea]]. One American battleship, the ''Texas'', also had the indignity to be (mildly) damaged by her own battery due to the less-than-ideal arrangement of her guns.
* In many American high school systems, the ''valedictorian'' award goes to the student with the highest grade point average in their class. The highest unweighted[[note]]AP and Honors classes often get an extra grade point bonus[[/note]] GPA obtainable is a 4.0[[note]]representing an A average; 3.0 is B average, 2.0 is C average, etc.[[/note]], so even being eligible for this award very often requires completing every single class with nothing less than a straight A.
