I'd really would like to program a system to a game which had really unusual, rare, or just downright insane properties.

The keyword to describe such is esoteric system.

As a beginner, I lack knowledge. I'd like to know any methods, functions, maps, anything strange in programming and/or maths.

Anything which doesn't seem to make any sense or is counter-intuitive.

What madness have you faced so far?

String theory could be nice source but I don't understand it. (hah, who truly would?)

Are you asking us about esoteric programming languages?

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

the point is that I will make an esoteric programming language myself to be actually used,

so the question is about "esoteric things" in general which can be used in such.

like chaotic logistic maps, unlambda calculus, arithmetic with n-dimensional branes.

"those things".

languages themselves could be nice but they are rarely other than hard to read.

if you know some which stand out I would really appreciate that

How about a language called kannan-speak? The programs would read like how my algebra teacher teaches in the class.

Programs would begin with a recall. End with a joke. Variable declarations would read like "Notation: n in Integers". The program body would be divided into Lemmas and Theorems
