This one was used in Potions of Delusion.

tacosalad explains what happens here: viewtopic.php?p=12716#p12716

Yeah, sprites in cutscenes don't appear if the screen is flipped.
This happens with all cutscenes, even with the Princess scene in the intro!

You can also try watching cutscenes in blind mode (Shift+B).
Black rectangles will appear around sprites.
And when a sprite moves, it leaves a black trail behind.

You can even combine screen flipping and blind mode.
Then the sprites won't appear, but the rectangles and trails will.

And finally there is the draw command line parameter.
If you start PoP with it, and flip the screen, then moving sprites will appear at both the original and the flipped locations.
The sprites are not erased properly, and leave a trail on the screen.
This works both in-game and in the cutscenes.

You can turn the screen into a big mess with this last glitch. :)

If you use draw and flip the screen and enable blind mode then the intro will look like this:

It's the mouse of doom! All floors break wherever it steps! :)

I didn't know the mouse can run across multiple screens.

I found a definitely strange one (although I don't wanna create a new post entirely so I'm building off of this one) while making a level - I had an idea to make a mini boss battle type thingie, and the result, well....

The gif has both what happens when you walk away, and what happens when you try and attack the guy - he dies in one hit? :?:
(Recorded in dosbox, PoP version 1.4 btw)

I definetly thought it was strange, but maybe it's been seen before? i dunno.

This is a combination of two glitches:

1. If a guard is standing on a "tapestry with floor" tile, he will be inactive.

Examples:
viewtopic.php?p=12715&hilit=tapestry_di ... ard#p12715
viewtopic.php?p=29437#p29437

In your case however, the guard stands just on the edge, so he will repeatedly flip between being active and inactive.
Like here: viewtopic.php?p=28578&hilit=doortop+inactive#p28578

2. If you strike an inactive guard, he dies in one hit.

Examples:
