    List any screwed up, strange, or just downright frustrating glitches in games, the glitch can come from any game, can be intentional or not, and from any generation.

    One of the most annoying glitches was the recently fixed cursed items glitch from Sei Madou Monogatari, where the curse stays until you use a dispel (even in the town) instead of it disappearing when you are in town, 50 gold+ wasted every dungeon crawl.

    There's other glitches that are even worse that got fixed.

    Countering right before dying prior to the patch 2 days ago would've bricked the game.

    That game was a glitch in itself, an overglorified Alpha test at best.

    Street Fighter arcade invisible handcuffs and magic throws. It was frustrating because there was one kid on the block that could pull those moves off 100% consistently.

    The whole of Route 11 in Pokémon Red changing to the Cave tileset upon exiting a battle.

    When my Ashley got duplicated in Mass Effect.
    I had three of them following me on the deck of the Normandy.
    It was fun at first but then I realized I could only access the equipment and stats of one of the duplicates,
    and couldn't retrieve the equipment I'd put on the original.

    We've gotten this far without someone mentioning Missingno? That's the one that stuck with me.

    5 Year Old Gahars: "Oh boy, this is a weird looking Pokemon. I don't remember it from the show, but oh well I gu- OH GOD WHERE'S MY CHARIZARD JESUS I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME."

    And then I tripped and scraped my knee. My childhood was fraught with tragedy.

    In SMW, if you have the the Feather and spin-jump over the yellow blocks, wait till you are between the blocks, then hold left or right without holding up A. If you're beside a wall, you die.

    LoL

    Some of the strangest glitches I've experienced have been in Red Dead Redemption, the infamous Donkey Lady or the Man-Cheetah being the funniest. I believe there are some videos on Youtube about them, I'll have to take a look and see if I can find them.

    i was playing the new tomb raider, everything was normal, until the part where you and your friends are held captive, but before being captured i entered some kind of black world: ``schwarzwelt´´ in the debug room, every thing was dark and there were islands of things like water and trees, i tried walking but ended jumping on an bottomless pit, during the fall, i heard some voices from the game intro:lara telling about the shipwreck.

    i was scared as hell, luckily, i was with my friends.

    I was going to say Sonic 06, but practically the whole game is a glitch, and none of them are obscure. :P

    Mew glitch in Pokemon R/B. If you fought that youngster, paused before he could walk over to you, and then you flew away, you could catch anything you wanted.

    Also, all of the glitches in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Some of the hard to pull off glitches can really be fun to mess with.

    All though they have already been said I would have to go with both the missingno and the mew glitch from Pokemon Red/Blue, I used to always catch missingno and the Pokemon over level 100 to screw with my friends , and having Mew without cheating made me the coolest kid in school :P

    I can't believe that I played Pokemon Blue so much when I was little and never encountered Missingno.

    The missingno and Mew glitches are far from obscure. Just saying. ;)

    The only other weird glitch I've found - that I remember anyway - is from Skyrim. Stepped outside one of the shops only to be greeted by a hailstorm of children. Children were just dropping outside of the sky... and resuming a game of tag as soon as they landed.

    You better believe the Whiterun Neighborhood Council got a complain that day.

    I got stuck in the floor in Metal Gear Rising once. I even took a picture of it.
