* Inside of the room where you get the rusted key in ''VideoGame/{{Imscared}}'', an observant player may notice a crack in one of the walls. On the other side you see [[spoiler:an empty room with a chair and the noose]], which plays a significant role in the ending.

* In the first [[{{Bionicle}} Mata Nui Online Game]], after the Po-Koro event, as a reward for helping the town, you are given an item, the "Po-Koro chisel" which seems to have absolutely no use, surprising in a game where every single item serves at least some purpose in one way or another. Flash-forward to the ending cutscenes of the game where Takua is fleeing from [[spoiler:the newly-awakened Bohrok]], and he discovers a device with an indentation that bears a staggering resemblance to the chisel.

* The bathroom in ''VideoGame/OneChance'' is very... uninteresting, to say the least. That is, until [[spoiler:your wife commits suicide in it]] in some routes.

* In BaldursGate you can get a pair of Golden Pantaloons from a nobleman at the Friendly Arms Inn. They're of no use whatsoever, but if you carry them over to the second game, you'll find a sidequest that, if you follow a certain way, will net you a pair of equally useless Silver Pantaloons, and in Throne of Bhaal you can get a pair of Bronze Pantalets in Sendai's stronghold. If you manage to hold on to all three seemingly useless items until now, you can go to a character in Amkethran and get him to forge for you the Big Metal Unit, the most powerful armor in the series.

* In the adventure game ''BlazingDragons'', one of the items you start with is Flicker's "clicker". Every time you look at it, Flicker says that it was his first ever invention, "the practical use of which escapes (him) at the moment". Its only use is in the very last scene of the game.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', the Arkham Knight has Batman trapped in a room with a hostage, and he explains to his men that the huge bat on Batman's chest is a decoy, and the point where the Batsuit is the most heavily-armored. Considering that this target is over Batman's center of mass, this makes sense. Later on, Batman and James Gordon have a standoff with Scarecrow on a rooftop [[spoiler: where the latter presents Gordon with a SadisticChoice. His daughter's life, or Batman's. Gordon shoots Batman right in the bat symbol, causing the latter to fake his death, and then when Scarecrow [[ILied drops Barbara to her death]], [[DivingSave Batman swoops in and catches her]]]].
-->'''Batman:''' Are you hurt?\\
[[spoiler: '''Oracle:''' I thought dad killed you]].\\
'''Batman:''' [[spoiler: *taps perforated bat symbol* He knew what he was doing]].

** At the start of episode 5, when building a dirt bridge towards the Sky City, Ivor builds a skull with lava dropping from its eyes. Later, when [[spoiler:Aiden throws Jesse off Sky City]], he has to dodge that lava when falling.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'':
** The beacon-based contraption the Ocelots were building is what allowed Jesse and his friends to find their way back to Endercon if Jesse takes the "Saving Reuben" route.
** At one point during the game, Axel can be seen watching an attraction involving chickens. Breaking the machine behind said attraction is a possible solution to get past the usher (due to him being afraid of them).
** [[spoiler:Soren's base being overrun with Endermen ends up becoming part of a plan to defeat the Wither Storm by using them to tear its body apart.]]
** In episode 1, you can accidentally make a lever while trying to create a sword. If you did this, Jesse will use the lever to [[spoiler: open a secret passageway]] in episode 4.

* In ''RatchetAndClank Future: Tools of Destruction'', The Plumber gives the heroes at one point a "3 3/4 centicubit hexagonal washer" "just in case". This item is utterly worthless through the game until the final cutscene, where they use it to [[spoiler: fix the Dimensionator before a massive black hole swallows them up]].

* ''HotelDusk'' features multiple subversions. First, the inconspicuous sewing machine and adhesive remover that come in a package near the beginning, and whose only introduction is Kyle commenting that they're useless prove to be essential to completing the game. On the other hand, the screwdriver that he repeatedly and visibly proclaims will surely be useful... has absolutely no possible use at any point in the game -- the only thing it can accomplish is getting you a Game Over if you don't put it back at the right time.
