* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' features two storyline missions that requires certain amounts of money to be unlocked. The first one is "Bomb Da Base Act II", which requires $ 100,000 for 8-Ball to make the explosives required for it. Later there's the final mission "The Exchange" which requires $ 500,000, as the money is for [[spoiler: Maria's ransom]].

* In ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', after Vyse and friends are reunited, they decide to start building their home base on the island Vyse got stranded on, and upgrade their new ship's engines and hull to withstand stronger currents and debris fields. Both are done at the same time, and cost over 120,000 gold for the upgrades and base. Fortunately, the dungeon you previously completed yields a valuable doubloon of a legendary pirate that sells for 10,000 gold, and the monsters in the skies around the home base act as miniature {{Money Spider}}s.

** At two points early on in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', you must buy a shield in order to proceed. In the Kokiri Forest, Mido refuses to let you see the Great Deku Tree (which results in you entering the first dungeon) until you get a sword and a shield- you find the sword in a chest, but you have to buy the shield at the store. Similarly, you aren't allowed to enter Death Mountain, even with Zelda's letter, until you buy a shield, but if you don't have one yet, the soldier standing guard gives you a discount.

* In order to progress Chihaya Mifune's Confidant rank in ''VideoGame/Persona5'', a 100,000 yen holy stone must be bought from her. While she returns it later on, its quite the investment, especially in the early game.

** The same thing happens on Telos station in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII''. If you want to buy the czerka technican's pass codes off him you'll need 2500 credits. If you want to be light side, other wise you can just kill him and take it.

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic 3'' has the barbarian campaign second mission of the neutral campaign, where you're required to gather 200,000 gold to advance. The justification is fundraising for a land-grabbing campaign. It's possible to gradually raise the money over time, or invade the rival player's territory and access the Border Guard, which grants you access to a large amount of gold in your territory.

* A mission in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' requires the player to harvest 10,000 lumber to proceed to the next mission. Similarly, a mission in the original Starcraft had Zerg, Protoss and Terrans team up to loot a Kel-Morian Combine harvesting facility for minerals. You could either harvest it normally, or spend some of it to raid enemy encampments for more. They revisit this again in several StarCraft2 Missions, such as Redstone, where you have to raise money in addition to being hounded by enemies. Either Spend the money now to save your skin and help expand, or hoard it to reach the goal faster (however, there are usually money pickups across the map, which would make it much easier to just spend all your money and go on an ass-kicking spree).

* In ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII: Shadows of Amn'', you have to collect 20,000 gold pieces to pay [[spoiler:the Shadow Thieves (or vampires)]] for breaking Imoen out of Spellhold. It gets reduced to 15,000 when [[spoiler:the Shadow Thieves]] realize that you have a competing offer. [[AntiFrustrationFeature Curiously]], this happens the very moment you ''have'' 15 grand on your person for the first time.

* Essentially the object of the game in the ''VideoGame/DLCQuest'' duology, as you need to use in-game currency to buy certain features, that will allow you to access new areas, from a weapon to the ability to jump. In the first game, [[spoiler:the seemingly useless "horse armor" isn't just a TakeThat to the infamous Oblivion DLC, but it's also necessary to avoid getting the bad ending, since it prevents your horse from dying while TakingTheBullet for you, enabling it to kill the villain]].
