We discuss an N = 2 quantum mechanics with or without a central charge. A representation is constructed with the number of bosonic degrees of freedom less than one-half of the fermionic degrees of freedom. We suggest a systematic method of reducing the bosonic degrees of freedom called "dynamical reduction". Our consideration opens a problem of a general classification of nonstandard representations of N = 2 superalgebra.
