** Dalmatian puppies in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' game, 99 in all (the two parents are already home at the start of the game to account for [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians all 101]]). You also find the puppies in sets of three, meaning there are really only 33 chests that contain them. On the bright side, you get rewards at specific intervals for collecting them, with the reward for all 99 being a respectable amount of EVERY ship part in the game, unfortunately the second game didn't have this and instead one of its major collectathons was actually getting all the ship parts. On the ''down'' side, one of the chests becomes LostForever if you don't collect it prior to defeating Oogie Boogie in Halloween Town. A glitch fixed in the [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] remake. [[note]] And the Updated Re-Release for [=PS3=] [[/note]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' had a particularly vicious sidequest of collecting every weapon and accessory in the game, which gave you the "Treasure Hunter" achievement. The "vicious" part here was that a lot of said items could be LostForever if you missed the single spot they could be found in the entire 50+ hour-long game. Add to that the fact that "Treasure Hunter" came with an interface theme featuring the most popular character in the game, Fang, and it becomes plain sadistic.

* ''VideoGame/BraveFencerMusashi'' has the Minku, which drop [[HeartContainer Longevity Berries]] when caught. The action figures can also count, though there seems to be no apparent reward for collecting them (and one or two of those are a serious GuideDangIt and/or potential LostForever).

* ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' has this in the form of its Doctorate achievement which requires collect 29 "XP Books" which, unlike most pieces of flavour text in the game, only appear once and can easily be LostForever if missed by the player. Needless to say, apart from their slight XP bonus, they offer no purpose but to provide more lore for the world.

* There are collection sidequests in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', most notably the Contest ribbons in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald and Diamond/Pearl. In fact, the game's stated "gotta catch 'em all" goal is sort of a Collection Sidequest in and of itself -- you don't actually have to fill the Pokedex even halfway in order to beat the Elite Four and make the credits roll.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' has riddler trophies, green glowing question marks that either are locked behind a puzzle or just lie around for Batman to collect. In each game (sans Origins, where he escapes), Collecting all of them results in Riddler's arrest, either by Batman or unseen police officers.
* ''VideoGame/{{Infamous}}'' has blast shards. They actually have an effect on the game, as collecting certain amounts of them gives Cole more space to store energy, helping him in combat.
* ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' has treasures hidden on each level. Collecting them adds them to your collection from where you can get a better look at them, and rewards the players with ways to get goodies such as perks, skin swaps or weapons.

** Every game since ''II'' has had a checklist in the journal of every treasure chest you could find in every world. They also listed the ''contents'' of those chests you've already opened, making the inevitable [[GuideDangIt GameFAQs trip]] a lot shorter. The only reward is a Mickey head of HundredPercentCompletion.

*** ''Assassin's Creed II'' goes halfway between this trope and PlotCoupon with the Codex Pages. They're treated as a useful SideQuest until the very end of the game, where collecting all 30 is required to access the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. That being said, the game subtly encourages you to collect them in several cutscenes, and you can start doing so at any time, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation even before Ezio becomes an Assassin]].
