** Even more annoying is the Sword of Kings, the aforementioned item with a 1/128 drop rate ''and'' is the only weapon that one member of your party can use that does not ''lower'' his attack. And it's a LostForever to boot. Downplayed because the Sword of Kings can be obtained in the middle of the game, where it will still have plenty of use, although the amount of fights you'll have to play to get it will constitute a sufficient LevelGrind that the extra attack power for one character matters much less than the improved strength of everyone on the team.

** The Dragon Priest Masks. There are eight undead Dragon Priests scattered around the country. Each one is a powerful and tough spellcaster. For each one you destroy, you get his unique enchanted mask. If you collect all eight masks and place them on the special altar in Labyrinthian, you get the golden mask, Konahrik. Konahrik heals you when you're badly injured and has a chance of damaging nearby enemies, an enchantment that's not as powerful as some of the others, and not very useful for somebody strong enough to obtain it. Further making it useless, one of the masks is obtained from a Dragon Priest in the final dungeon of the main story that you're unable to return to, making it potentially LostForever.

** ''Minish Cap'' also has a few subversions. The Carlos Medal, which you get for having all the figurines, gives you quite a few rupees (which are pointless by the time you get all the figurines anyway), but you also get a Piece of Heart and the game's sound test. The Tingle Trophy for fusing all the Kinstones is a more conventional example, as it does absolutely nothing. However, fusing all the Kinstones provides a lot of rewards itself, including rupees, pieces of heart, bag expansions, and weapon upgrades.

** To get the game's best weapon, you need to not only face the BonusBoss (which is ''significantly'' harder than anything else in the game) but '''cut off it's tail''' during the fight. Once you have it, and upgrade it with an extremely tedious-to-get upgrade item you now have a weapon more powerful than you will ever need, because nothing in the game is even half so hard as the bonus boss is.

** TakenUpToEleven in its third and fourth games due to the quirks of the forging system. The ultimate weapon has 8 empty forge slots for maximum customizability, but for each slot you need to use an item you sold to the shop - which happens to be the unique drop of the ultimate BonusBoss. Hence, you'll need to kill that boss 9 times in order to fully empower that weapon. It gets more tedious in the fourth game as there is a total of ''eight'' different weapons that behave like that, forcing the player to slay the boss at least 72 times to get the perfect gear for their party.

* In ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'', beating the BonusBoss of the game gets you... [[CosmeticAward a car.]] This would have been fine if it weren't for the fact that you have a ''dragon'' as your transportation. The BonusBoss fight however is repeatable and does get stronger whenever you fight it though.

* Veteran mode in ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol''. To unlock it you have to beat the game in Recruit mode which gives you the least amount of skill points. Veteran mode gives you the biggest amount of skill points, but unlocking it means you've proven that you're capable of beating the game with a severely gimped PlayerCharacter anyway.

** Getting the Hallowed gear and the best weapons requires souls dropped by each of the Hardmode Bosses in the game, the very things you are probably wanting said gear to kill with.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona Q}}'' also features the Omnipotent Orb as the reward a quest. Said quest? Defeating [[BonuaBoss The Reaper]]. And the quest only opens up after you've already beaten the FinalBoss. The Reaper also drops an item that lets you craft armor that halves all stats but doubles Exp gained. But by the time you're strong enough to defeat The Reaper, you probably won't ever need to grind again.

** However averted with the Protagonist's ultimate Persona [[spoiler:Satanael]]. Unlike in 4 you can register it in the compendium (which means on a third playthrough you can get it straight off the bat and proceed to crack the game in half), and not only that but thanks to how the Strength confident mechanic works you can create it far earlier than the end of the second playthrough if you have the money to burn on it (which thanks to being a replay already, you likely do).

** Subverted in the original game, where the same item can be obtained pretty early on, as all it requires is that you collect 40 of an item dropped by early game enemies.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' continued this trend by allowing [[CanonName Yu]] access to his EleventhHourSuperPower; [[spoiler: Izanagi-No-Okami]], in normal gameplay by achieving the same means. Thankfully P4 is ''much'' more merciful about deadlines than its predecessor.
** However, unlike ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'''s Orpheus Telos, you can't register [[spoiler: Izanagi-No-Okami]] in the compendium, so you only have until the end of the game to use it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': The Omnipotent Orb, an accessory which blocks ''all'' damage other than almighty. However, you have to have already finished the story once and won the toughest fight in the game against BonusBoss Justine and Caroline to even get
it.

* Both ''VideoGame/LEGOHarryPotter'' games have such a reward you can get after collecting all the golden bricks:
** Finding all golden bricks in ''Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4'' ultimately allows you to unlock Voldemort as a playable character. But he is not any different from any other dark wizard in the game, and seeing as you already require a dark wizard to find some of the required gold bricks, he is not the most useful character...except to show everyone that you finished the game at 100% completion.
** The ultimate reward in ''Years 5-7'' is even more useless. Finding all the golden bricks there allows you to build a golden miniature version of Hogwarts in one of the rooms of the Leaky Cauldron that continually spawns studs (the in-game currency).
