*** 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.

** TNT falls under a similar problem. For general use, TNT is good to destroy a wall or the like if you are mining, but the explosion radius is quite large and items caught in the center of the explosion are destroyed so if you are not careful, you can wind up destroying the rare diamonds or the even rarer emeralds.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/MarioParty 5'' and ''6'', the Bullet Bill Capsule/Orb lets you steal 30/20 coins from any opponent you pass, as well as pass roadblocks without triggering them. However, you cannot buy Stars, choose your direction at junctions, or experience other board events.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'': The dual pistols. They fire much faster than the regular pistol and [[CaptainObvious allow you to shoot two bullets at the same time]], but the bullets don't go in a straight line, requiring you to keep it for groups of enemies.

Added DiffLines:

* The advanced professions in ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}''. Sure, being a Special Ops soldier, a martial arts blackbelt, or a cybernetic assassin might seem preferable for taking on the ZombieApocalypse compared to being a hobo, chain smoker, or clown, but given that ''Cataclysm'' is an EndlessGame, it is preferable to spend your character points on stats or traits that are permanently fixed once the game starts rather than on a profession whose starting skills and items may be obtained by any character with enough time and luck.

* ''[[GaiaOnline zOMG!]]'' has the Fire Rain ring, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin rains fire on surrounding enemies]], ranging from flickers at low rage to firey meteors at high rage. Looks great, but rendering all that fire causes enough lag to give it the nickname "Lag Rain", which is not good when you're surrounded by angry enemies...

** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' gives us a few examples of this. One example is Great Zeorymer of ''Anime/HadesProjectZeorymer''. It's a powerful unit that grants the player the usage of attacks used by Zeorymer and its main bad guys. However, you only get a few stages to play with it and it requires you to skip virtually every other hidden secret to get it. Another is the X-Aestivalis Kai, an improved version from ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' that ''doesn't'' implode when its [[WaveMotionGun Gravity Cannon]] is used. However, its Gravity Cannon is its ''only weapon'' and since it acts like the other Aestivalises, it needs to stay within range of the Nadesico to be very effective.

However, you only get a few stages to play with it and it A) requires you to skip virtually every other hidden secret to get it. it, and B) to ''not'' field the Zeorymer ''at all'' unless the mission forces you to... Which translates to getting to use him for about eight missions before the upgrade, and 18 (out of 52) after.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': Soren mentions that he loves this sort of thing right before asking you to activate a switch that releases about a dozen Iron Golem security guards.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'', Bowser and Donkey Kong, Jr. have the highest top speed. In order to make use of this it requires about a lap and a decent amount of coins to get up to speed and relies on the player not colliding with any objects or other karts to stay there, which on the harder tracks can be next to impossible.
