Restart at Level One
Restart at Level One may refer to one of the following video game mechanics:

  • Bag of Spilling: Abilities and items gained in the first game do not carry over to the sequel.
  • Class Change Level Reset: Changing jobs causes your level to drop back to level 1.
  • Continuing Is Painful and Checkpoint Starvation: In their extreme forms, a player who makes too many mistakes is punished with a trip back to the beginning of the entire game.
  • Level Drain: An event or an enemy which can make the player's level drop.
  • Overrated And Underleveled: An ally is known by reputation to possess great power, but in order to not break the game, he inevitably ends up weaker than your main character.
