** To a lesser degree, Erron Black from ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' seems to have carved bullets for each one of the characters in the roster. Including Alien and Predator, each one of the variations of Triborg, one for engaging in a MirrorMatch and even for [[DevelopersForesight non-playable characters that only appear in Story Mode and who Erron himself never fights]].

* Your character in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' can be an example of this, if done right. While nearly all of these examples can be replicated with spells, hoarding potions is a great way to survive. Low on health or magicka? Chug some potions. Diseased? Chug potions. Water breathing? There's a potion for that. Need to be more liked by people? Potion for that. Need help in a fight? Slight twist here: there's a scroll for that. Need someone to start the fight instead of you? Again, scroll. Need to carry more loot? Potions and scrolls can help. And this isn't even bringing enchantments into play...

** In
''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and Morrowind]]'', ''you'' had better be this if you hope to survive for long. Keep a few "Cure Disease" potions on hand [[spoiler:(at least [[IdealIllnessImmunity until a certain point in the main quest]])]] because you never know when you might stumble into a den of vampires. And if you're going somewhere that might have [[DemonicSpiders Greater Bonewalkers]], having something to restore your Strength attribute will help. (They have a nasty tendency to [[ThatOneAttack damage your attributes]] with a spell. This is a mere annoyance for most of your attributes, but having your Strength damaged could leave you an [[CriticalEncumbranceFailure overencumbered sitting duck]] in the middle of a fight.) A few scrolls of [[WarpWhistle Almsivi or Divine Intervention]] are also a must in order to get out of a sticky situation or for [[MundaneUtility transporting more loot than you could otherwise carry]]. Asking certain [=NPCs=] for a "Little Advice" will lead to this being a Discussed trope, as they advise you on some of these tips plus others.

** For example, in Action games which involve ambush or 'hold-the-line' set pieces, knowing where enemies will spawn or approach from and having the ability to set traps (via mines or similar weapons) can make these sections a breeze.

* ''VisualNovel/{{SOON}}'': [[spoiler:Kid!Fang]] came up with a [[TrustPassword time travel password]] just in case she needs to prove herself that time travel is real. Atlas has to convince her future self to tell them the password to get [[spoiler:Lady Fluffyguts]] from her past self.

* Being Crazy Prepared is one of the key gameplay features of the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games and spin-offs. Arranging all the skills and spells you need out of your limited selection of [[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTensei demon]] [[VideoGame/DevilSummoner followers]], [[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona personas]], or [[VideoGame/DevilSurvivor friends (and their demons)]] is an ''art'', especially when you find your current selection falling behind in level and needing to set up a whole new repertoire with a different balance of needed powers. It's overall easiest in the ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' duology where you can customize your party members' skills directly along with buying curative items, making it your own fault if you can't cover every base effectively.

* The BigBad of the second ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' game. [[spoiler:He had a total of ''five backup plans'' to try and kill the heroes. First, he tried to convince the heroes to "[[DrivenToSuicide disappear]]". When that didn't work, he tricked a PhysicalGod into trying to kill them. When that failed, he lured them to his lair to finish them. When they arrived, he trapped the hero in a nightmare where their partner joined Darkrai due to crossing the DespairEventHorizon. When they freed themselves, he summons an army of {{Mooks}} to help him kill them. When he and his minions are beaten, he reveals he'd already prepared a dimensional portal to escape through! The only thing he wasn't prepared for was the previously mentioned PhysicalGod showing up and blasting the portal as he tried to escape.]]

* In ''VideoGame/StarcraftIILegacyOfTheVoid'', the ''Spear of Adun'' and its sister Arkships come equipped with a full crew of [[SealedArmyInACan Templar warriors in stasis]], a solar forge capable of manufacturing any building or weapon in the Protoss arsenal, a Preserver able to access the memories and knowledge of any Protoss ever connected to the Khala, an artificial star that serves as both power generator and food supply (Protoss receive nourishment from sunlight), a vast array of support systems and weaponry, and it's implied that it also possesses a personal psi-matrix to allow those aboard to warp in and out. It's justified, as the three Arkships were explicitly created to be used only in the Protoss race's DarkestHour and not before, so such precautions would almost certainly be required for their intended purpose.

** In the Bangkok level of ''VideoGame/Hitman2016'', one method of getting close to and assassinating indie rock star Jordan Cross is to have 47 knock out their new replacement drummer, steal his clothes, and have 47 play the drums. Not only does he manage to fool them, but he plays well enough that he manages to impress them. Either 47 has some interesting hobbies outside of his work with the ICA, or he was prepared for that exact scenario.

* ''VideoGame/HelloNeighbor'': In all four versions currently available, the Neighbor boards up his basement door and outfits it with a keycard lock. In the pre-alpha, Alpha 1, and Alpha 3, he eventually places {{Bear Trap}}s and motion detectors around his house as well. In the pre-alpha and Alpha 1, he will board up his windows to prevent you from getting in through them a second time. In the pre-alpha, in addition to boarding up his basement and using a keycard lock, he also uses a number keypad. In Alpha 1, [[spoiler:he has a tiny robotic shark to attack intruders.]] In the second alpha, he boards up the room with the keycard in it and locks up the room with the crowbar and carries the key on him at all times.
