An often controversial element of gameplay that unexpectedly trumps all others, a Game-Breaker is ann element of a game that, due to underestimated abilities (whether on its own or when it's combined with another item/mechanic) or players coming up with creative ways of using it, ends up making the game ''hugely'' easy.

An often controversial element of gameplay that unexpectedly trumps all others. Depending upon who you ask, it may or may not be considered cheating. A Game-Breaker is a legitimate element of the game used in an unintended way. The MetaGame ends up revolving around who can get the Game-Breaker (or use it on the other) first, resulting in GameplayDerailment.

A Game-Breaker can boost a pre-existing strategy or character and make it overwhelmingly powerful against things it would normally be balanced against -- [[ScissorsCutsRock Scissors crushing Rock]], [[ElementalRockPaperScissors so to speak]]. One fan term for it is "cheesing".

Unlike video games, many {{Tabletop RPG}}s (except most modern ones) have a built-in check in the form of the GameMaster, who can override published rules for the sake of everyone's enjoyment; thus, with a good GameMaster, no Game-Breaker is possible (unless the game is '' [=SenZar=])''. However, this naturally carries the corollary that, with a ''bad'' GameMaster, the game comes pre-broken. Just what is and isn't game-breaking is, again, controversial, and many [=GMs=] have to deal with a limited player base; [[{{Scrub}} too heavy]] or [[StopHavingFunGuys too light]] a hand may alienate players and destroy the GameMaster's plan.
