* In a game module in the ''StarWars'' RPG, a couple of Squib merchants arguing with another group of merchants near the entrance to a ruined Jedi Academy have a burned out lightsaber for sale. This lightsaber allows you to interact with an important NPC later on, finding out some key info.

** Also worth mentioning was the AI "Eyem," named for the first thing it said to those who discovered it, a throwaway mention of a wonder of the First Age, or at least the Shogunate. Again, fast forward to the second edition, where the First Age version of the internet is a sentient network known as I AM.
* One series of ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' missions, involving Computer-mandated [[BlatantLies "improvements"]] to the Food Vats, also made passing mention of a NPC with the Matter Eater mutation. Later, the [=PCs=] revisit his sector - now plunged into famine - and run into him again. Turns out a ''lot'' of citizens discovered that they had that mutation. They also discovered that [[ImAHumanitarian real meat tastes much better than vat product]]...

* Many of the ''FightingFantasy'' gamebooks published in the United Kingdom have the reader collect all sorts of strange odds and ends, most of which seem to have no possible justification for the adventurer taking them along. Naturally, those seemingly useless items end up being just what the reader needs to get him- or herself out of trouble, or otherwise make an enemy easier to defeat.
