There was one example. I cannot remember the precise syntax, but I'm sure someone here could. At the time I last took an interest in such things, there was a (then undocumented) command that would allow you to pull a blade from certain sheaths (e.g. a wrist sheath) quietly into an equipped states. Last time I looked, this was not explained in the documentation.
It seemed like kind of a niche command, for the reason that it's principle application seemed to be if you were shadowing someone, and decided to go for a backstab, but hadn't yet thought to equip a blade. Properly executed, you wouldn't risk breaking the "hide" effect and I don't even think it produced a visible echo.
Sorry that I don't remember the syntax, but I'm sure someone here does. I'm posting this one for the simple reason that I found it baffling at the time that we as players had been meant to discover this simply by goofing around with the command parser.
Way back in the day gather used to be an open command meaning anyone could do it. I once used it in Luirs and got in trouble by Ness after they killed me as a sorc. I asked him why it wasn't a locked command or whatever and he said it's purposefully designed this way. Eventually they locked it.

Flip weapon. Some weapons, at least one staff that I've seen, you can type flip <weapon> while holding it, and it becomes a club, or an axe/slashing weapon. Something like that. It's not immediately obvious how to do it by reading the desc and I don't recall ever seeing flip used for anything but coins. Someone told me OOCly to try "flip staff". It was kind of neat.
grumble: Necker, however much I miss saying "Sup my necker?", was a bit much. I can do without it because I see the reason why it's a bad idea. I'm not sure too many were offended but one is enough.
