* The ''HarvestMoon'' series has a couple in completing your recipe and shipping lists. Some game items are rare, only occur in certain places at certain times, or [[GuideDangIt you have to make yourself]]. And half the time, you need two of said item: One to ship and one to use as an ingredient. If 100% Completion isn't used as a requirement to unlock a marriage candidate (Usually [[MayflyDecemberRomance the Harvest Goddess]]), it's pure BraggingRightsReward.

** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'', quests are well-rounded, but do contain their quota of collection missions. The main quest includes a good number of fetch quests. There is also that Merchant quest where you have to retrieve four gold bars - one from a house, one from a bank, one from a palace, and one from a dungeon.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' features several. The Threads of the Webspinner quest for the Morag Tong has you finding 26 enchanted items with a major case of GuideDangIt. Finding all of the propylon indexes is an unofficial one, though you can turn them in for a "master index" in an official add-on.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' has this in form of a Nirnroot (a semi-rare plant only found near or in bodies of water) sidequest which has you collect 100 of these, and if you're ''really'' bored, it's definitely possible to collect '''every single piece''' of playable armor and weapons in the game, ''just for showing them off''... to yourself.

Added DiffLines:

** In general, throughout the series, you can make unofficial collection quests out of what ever you want. Want to collect all of the game's legendary artifacts? Absolutely. Want to pick up a copy of every [[InGameNovel in-game book]]? Heck yes. Want to collect every piece of a type of VendorTrash instead? You can do that too. Weapons, armor, wheels of cheese, pots, skulls, forks, bolts of cloth, specific OrganDrops...the list goes on. And because most games [[AHomeownerIsYou allow you to purchase or build a home]] (or several), you'll have a handy place for storing whatever it is you've chosen to collect.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has the Spirit Orbs from the Shrines and the Korok Seeds. Getting a certain amount of each will get you a health or stamina upgrade for the former and an expanded inventory for the latter. Getting ''all'' of each will get you [[spoiler:Link's IconicOutfit]] for the former and [[spoiler:[[BraggingRightsReward an item that can make Hestu dance]]]] for the latter.

** 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).

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.
