* Dr. Light from the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series. Before his death, he had set up approximately ''53'' (or more) capsules containing upgrades all over the world for the main characters, even Zero, which is odd, seeing as Zero isn't even a creation of Light at all. And the hologram that shows up with each capsule falls into the EnergyBeing ObiWan category, allowing himself to ''talk'' with both of them.

'''Scout:''' 7 a.m. Case the restaurant, run background checks on all the [restaurant] staff. The chef, can I trust him? If not, kill him, hide the body, replace him with my own guy no later than 4:30.\\

** Subverted in the ''Expiration Date'' film, in which the Scout is being coached by the Spy to prepare for a date, the former comes up with a comically convoluted plan to ensure that the date goes off without a hitch, including killing the chef if he's not up to snuff. The Spy just thinks he's an idiot.
-->'''Spy:''' Final question: You have a dinner date for 7. What time do you arrive?\\
'''Scout:''' 7 a.m. Case the restaurant, run background checks on all the [restaurant] staff. The chef, can I trust him? If not, kill him, hide the body, replace him with my own guy no later than 4:30.\\
'''Spy:''' ... You're ready!\\
'''Scout:''' Really?\\
'''Spy:''' No! Everything you said was insane.

* the MonsterHunter series requires players to follow this tropes. Going LeeroyJenkins towards nearly every beast will ensure a swift, painful and expensive demise.

** Since the revamped Naughty Sorceress Quest, you had better have picked up very specific combat items from the 10th and 11th level quests if you want to get through

** Of course, there is the option of leaving all the stuff in a box. It's generally a good idea to have your own armoury, if not necessarily on hand. There are some who have multiple NATO AND Warsaw Pact assault rifles (with scopes, suppressors, and grenade launchers), a few sniper rifles, silenced rifles, forty-something frag grenades, a {{Hand Cannon}}, some lighter-weight pistols, an automatic shotgun, [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter more shotguns]], a light machine gun, an RPG, an armoured HAZMAT suit, and combat armour. Oh, and anywhere from 200-1,000+ rounds of ammo for each calibre (except the RPG, of course). Combined with the upgrades one can have installed by the end of the game [[MoreDakka (.45 ACP MP5 that fires 1,710 rounds per minute, anyone?)]], even taking a few guns out of storage can turn the player character into a {{One Man Army}}.

* In the {{fighting game}} ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', at least one of SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom's basic attacks and one of his hyper combos involve attacking the opponent with machinery he previously hid on the battle site. As fights in this game can take place anywhere from an ordinary city street to the ComicBook/XMen's private training room to the extradimensional home of [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor the Norse Gods]], this demonstrates an impressive degree of preparedness on his part.
