- World Map Skill or item: RP Gs especially early ones you have to use a skill or consumable item to display the full world map incase you get lost. Final Fantasy this skill was called Sight and the item called Gnomish Bread.
- World Map Macguffin: Early on in the plot of a video game you will be given a world map, sometimes it comes out of nowhere, others you get charged for it.
- Mini Map: a map of the world, zone, area displayed in a corner.
- The RPG World Map walk around the world going from town to town, usually with Clown Car Base type views. Which has evolved over time.
- Icon based maps that kinda look like chess pieces, ie Mario 3 or Dissidia.
- Destination Map: Chose your destination from a list or curser and click go to go there. IE Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy XIII-2's world map.
