** Berries are easy to find in Hoenn, Sinnoh and Alola. In every other region, they are only given by a select number of NPC's and they often only give you the most common ones.

* Some event-only and therefore very rare grubs in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' can seem a little ridiculous. The more striking is the rarissime... Frozen TV Dinner.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has the rubber armor set, which reduces damage from electricity and can make you completely immune to it if upgraded. The item description states that rubber was a part of ancient technology in the past and is almost impossible to find now.

* In ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'', it's stated that hot chocolate is considered an exotic beverage, and Luke buys packets whenever he can.

* In ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'', it's stated that hot chocolate is considered an exotic beverage, and Luke buys packets whenever he can. It is of course a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, so for them to have any food/drink/etc that we have on Earth is a small miracle. "Chocolate" could indeed be exceedingly rare in an alien galaxy.

** Similarly, in older [=MMOs=] where the majority of the population is max level and doesn't alt much, low level crafted and/or dropped gear that makes use of all common materials can be difficult to come by for new players. As the old population sees no reason to craft/sell it.
** Special holiday events can push extremely common and normally unsought after materials to high prices as lazy players find it easier to buy them rather than loot them, resulting in massive price gouging. For example, in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' christmas events generally involve giving milk and cookies to santa. Cookies can be crafted by anyone with level 1 cooking skill, but require bird eggs, which can drop from just about any level 1 avian enemy. Bird eggs move from being unsellable on the [=AH=] to stupidly expensive as soon as santa arrives.

** Pumpkins can be this on the XBox360 version of the game, since it's a finite space rather than the PC's nigh-unlimited world. If a cluster of pumpkins--usually around four or five at best--spawns, you will have to search far and wide to locate them. They end up being more rare than diamond ore. And even in the PC game, wild pumpkins can sometimes be hard to come by.

* In ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', most of the vigors seem to be mass-produced as alternate power sources or have other industrial applications, so they shouldn't exactly be rare. However, a whole long level is dedicated to retrieving a single bottle of the Shock Jockey vigor to fix one of the game's Main/BrokenBridge's. Made even more egregious by seeing an overturned cargo container full of said vigor bottles in the next level.

* Though not rare per se, it takes a lot more effort to find a human bone in the catacombs in ''PlanescapeTorment'' than it really should.
