- Many video games reward players for using riskier methods of play that usually require skill (or, sometimes, luck) to perform correctly. It can be found in combat techniques, harder stages with bonus item rewards and equippable items with bad stats but great bonus effects.

The rewards are usually things like bonus score points, gold, experience points, and stat enhancements.
