* In Wacky Races Starring Dick Dastardly & Muttley, there is The Crimson Haybailer, which it possess the ability to fly without a power-up, however, it also possess NO Grip, which forces you to use a power-up to stand on the ground so you could make a turn without having to stop your car/plane, The Crimson Haybailer, however, is specially useful in tracks that have water sections (One of them have a really large shortcut, which no other car, except for The Crimson Haybailer can take)

** A lot of [[VideoGame/MegaManX X's]] helmet upgrades tend to fall under this. Aside from the secret armor upgrades, the SNES ones, and their Gameboy Expies, aren't much use once you memorize where they'd be useful. Play style or character preference does the same to most of the PS1 ones as many reduce weapon energy usage (which neither Zero nor the Ultimate Armor really need), the Shadow Armor speeds up sword attacks, and the Gaea Armor has no stated function at all. Aversions are ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX4 X4]]'' (game play is set up so weapons are still useful), ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX7 X7]]'' (attracts power ups from further away), and ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX8 X8]]'' (a weaponized form of X1's part and a quick charge, though the Nova Strike makes weapons useless again).

* ''VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero'' has the skill Prinny Raid, which you get from losing all 1000 lives on one playthrough. Performing the skill has Prinnies rain down from the sky and damage all those in the way. On top of that, you're invincible the entire way through. So what's so bad about that? Well, those Prinnies are your extra lives[[note]]Your controllable Prinny is one from a squad of a thousand Prinnies and [[JustifiedExtraLives one of those takes it's place when it dies]][[/note]] and you're throwing them away just to kill a bunch of things on screen when you could have just killed them yourself.

*** There is also the Magic Cape. It turns you invisible and untouchable by certain things, but that doesn't extend to enemies. The only time it's necessary for anything is to get one piece of heart. It becomes more useful when the magic meter is doubled, but it still drains quickly.

** Most firearms that aren't a silenced pistol tend to fall into this category, as they're either needlessly loud, can't be concealed or both.

* In ''Moonwalker'' on the SegaGenesis, you can perform a special move that makes everyone on screen dance themselves to death. Unfortunately, it costs half your life.

* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' have perfect examples in hydrix jewelry - amulet of souls, reaper necklace, deathtouched bracelet, and ring of death. They have the best stats in the game and even come with their own combat passives. The problem? They all degrade extremely quickly, especially in comparison to other degradable equipment, and can only be repaired by using expensive onyx gems on them. Not to mention, there are other jewelry with better passives with a tiny bit less stats that either degrade much more slowly or not at all, so they fall into the wayside.

This has been now averted after an update that massively buffed them, making them truly powerful for their cost.

** Among the [[IncrediblyLamePun bumper crop]] of new plants introduced in [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime the sequel]], we have the Bowling Bulbs, introduced in Big Wave Beach. Three onion bulbs roll down the lane and rebound off any zombies they hit, causing them to potentially do a lot of damage. The problem? When all three bulbs have gone and there are still zombies on a row, only the smallest and weakest bulb will ever roll down. The other two considerably stronger bulbs won't ever recharge unless there are no zombies on the row. Although they have one of the best [[LimitBreak Plant Food abilities]] in the game, the bulbs are otherwise situational at best and are vastly outclassed by a number of the other plants that the game offers.

Spruced things up a bit
** Another more situational example is Aghanim's Scepter, a costly item that gives good all-around stats and, for most Heroes, gives an upgrade for their Ultimate Ability. These upgrades range from almost necessary [[note]]for heroes like [[DifficultButAwesome Meepo,]] whose upgrade gives him a fifth clone of himself to use and makes all of his clones more powerful[[/note]] to good, if you can afford it [[note]] for example, [[SquishyWizard Pugna's]] Life Drain ability can be upgraded to not have a cooldown, turning a sqiuishy support into a pseudo-tank[[/note]] to only good in certain situations [[note]] Doom's ultimate, [[NamesTheSame Doom,]] can be upgraded to disable passive abilities, so it's only good if the enemy has a Hero that benefits from one of those[[/note]] to being not at all worth the cost. [[note]] Gyrocopter's 'Call Down' can be upgraded to launch its missiles across the entire map, instead of only near Gyrocopter. However, Gyrocopter is a hero that gets into a lot of fights, so his targets will almost always be near him anyway. [[RuleOfFun It sure is fun to use, though.]] [[/note]]
