* In {{VideoGame/Verdun}}, you get medals for exceptional performance on the battlefield. They serve no function other than looking good. Considering the game itself, that's not surprising.

* ''VideoGame/{{DarkSouls}}'' throws the [[WarmupBoss Asylum Demon]] at you twice: Once before you've acquired any weapons beyond a [[WithThisHerring dull, broken sword hilt]], and again after you've got your starter gear. If you manage to kill him the first time around, you're given the Demon's Great Hammer: An oversized club with disgustingly high stat requirements. By the time you can use it, though, you'll have better weapons.

* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhMonsterCapsuleGB'', Yami Yugi's figurine can only be unlocked after training Yugi to the maximum level, and Yugi can only be unlocked if the player has rescued all of his friends. Yami's tied for the strongest monster with the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, but the sheer amount of effort needed to get him means that when you finally do, not much can stop you to begin with.

Added DiffLines:

* Studs X8 and X10 in the various ''VideoGame/{{Lego Adaptation Game}}s'' serve little to no purpose since they are absurdely expensive, difficult to unlock, only available very late in the game (typically only available after Story Mode is complete), and most of all because the stud multipliers stack. Studs X2 can ''always'' be easily unlocked right at the beginning ([[GuideDangIt though sometimes it's tricky]]) and X4 can typically be unlocked fairly early, and those two together will give you 8X more money which is enough to purchase ''everything'' as it becomes available. It actually takes genuine effort to unlock Studs X10 ''before'' you've already purchased pretty much everything.

* The last course to be unlocked in ''VideoGame/FZero GX'' is the Sonic Oval beginner course from ''AX'', which isn't even used in the Grand Prix.

* The last course to be unlocked in ''VideoGame/FZero GX'' is the Sonic Oval beginner course from ''AX'', which isn't even used in the Grand Prix. It doesn't even provide a major challenge, as it's just a simple oval with two turns.

** Oh but there's something so, so amazing about the Wyrmhero blade. There's a challenge in which you go through the game without any character levelling up, and without any character unlocking any part of the license board; those who have played the game should be widening their eyes at reading this. And yes - the challenge has been completed, and Yiazmat and Omega XII were both beaten. So here's the thing: they beat Yiazmat and Omega BEFORE completing the game. In the context of the challenge, the final boss is harder than Yiazmat and Omega, because they both have a pattern that you can use to wear away at them without taking any damage. So to do the last boss, yes, they got the Wyrmhero blade and it actually came in handy - they beat the final boss. Note that the blade is a "great sword" - no license board interaction needed! That's why it was more important to them than any other item.

Note player really wants to go through a [[LowLevelRun low level]][[SelfImposedChallenge , no license board run]]. This because while said [[BonusBoss superbosses]] have predictable safe patterns that make them beatable, the FinalBoss doesn't. Add the fact that the Wyrmhero blade is a "great sword" - no that doesn't require any license board interaction needed! That's why and it was more important makes some sense to them than any other item.get it before the end of the game, at least in the context of this challenge...

** On hard mode the final boss also drops the otherwise unavailable elementaga spell. Like many of the other abilities in the game this spell has different power levels that can be improved by merging multiple copies of it together, meaning that creating an ultimate version would require dozens of separate hard mode playthroughs and final boss kills. It doesn't help that the elementaga is horrendously expensive to cast, making it AwesomeButImpractical.

* ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII:'' The final boss drops a unique double-bladed weapon, with good but not game-breaking stats. The base drop rate is 5%, or 15% on Hard Mode. If you're capable of farming the Hard final boss for a weapon ... then you really don't need it.

* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has these weapons but in different ways, economics and leveling. Many of the best weapons in the game use expensive ammo which may barely be available through scavenging. Thus, if you want to use the best weapons in the game, you must scrounge ammo and money, and one of the best ways to do that is to become effective with a less costly weapon. This is true of the previous games but the ''Gun Runners Arsenal'' DLC really exacerbates the issue. The DLC adds in a bunch of new weapons, many of which are unique, and ammo types to the game, none of which can just be found lying around and must be purchased. Often the player only has the wealth to use these weapons regularly when their weapons skills are so high that that extra damage you're buying is almost always overkill buy that point, so even carting around some powerful guns is wasteful in the added weight alone.
