* City-dwelling birds such as pigeons, gulls, and crows are treated as this by birdwatchers both because of how ubiquitous they are and because they have [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute duller appearances and less pleasant cries]] than the more popular and sought after birds.

* Played straight in the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' card game, where you start with a crappy collection of cards and then have to play other people and sift through their horde of bad cards to get one of the few worth having. That said, the cards can also be refined into items, so every card has at least some sort of use.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AkaSeka'': Any Man of Tsukuyomi whose rarity is 2 stars or lower. They are offered as standard rewards after completing dungeons and pop up a lot during summoning, but many players discard them in favor of higher quality men with fancier skills and looks.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}}'': Any ''shikigami'' whose rarity is R or N. Ns can only be summoned using low-quality talismans specifically meant for them, but Rs can be summoned by all types of talismans, so expect Rs to pop up very frequently, disappointing a lot of fans who pay real money to buy high-quality talismans. That said, many of the Rs become very popular due to their useful skills despite their low rarity.

*** Their Dex entries hang a bit of a lampshade on the whole thing: in Alola, Rattatas are legitimately considered an invasive species, and Yungoos was imported from another country to try to stop their spread. End result: Alolans Rattatas are now nocturnal, and the islands have ''two'' bunches of ComMons rodents being a pain. [[ShownTheirWork This is a reference to actual Pacific fauna history]]: small Asian mongooses were introduced into Hawaii and Indonesia to get rid of rats in sugarcane plantations, but became an invasive species themselves.

* For some paleontologists, some types of fossils become this; one example is the Gobi Desert, which is rich with dinosaur bones but fossil enthusiasts who expect find rare dinosaurs will be dissapointed by the ubiquitous amount of ''Protoceratops'' bones that litter the area.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' the battle pet system allows players to capture wild critters as additional pets. Many such critters can appear in multiple zones around the world or appear as a different sub-species, which is often functionally identical. Roaches for example appear in nearly every demon-, undead-, or bug-infested region; while rabbits appear in any pleasant zone, with arctic versions for snowy areas.
