** Delicious Salad was only available from the "Spectral Salad Factory," a meta-joke zone that appeared on April Fool's Day in 2008 and vanished forever the next day. Other types of salad are common, but only the Delicious ones can give you the collectible salad tattoo, so it was an overvalued item for a long time. This finally ended in 2015 when the "Deck of Every Card" included a means of generating salads.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', there is only one muffin on the entire island of Vvardenfell. And it already belongs to someone, so the only way to obtain it is to steal the delicious baked good. And if you eat said muffin, it gives you the exact same stamina regeneration as a normal, common piece of bread.

** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim,'' there are many rare alchemy ingredients that logically ought to be relatively common. For example, you'd think you could get human flesh and human hearts from every enemy you kill, but they're some of the rarest ingredients in the game, and are never looted from human enemies.

** In Sun & Moon yhe currency for Hyper Training (which powers up Pokemon's base stats to max) is bottle caps. Subsequently, they are very rare items that you can only find through sending your Pokemon on cave expeditions for treasure or trading shards (previously established to be parts of the items that power up [[OlympusMons Arceus]]) for them or, very rarely, by fishing them up. No, you can't get them by simply buying drinks, that would make too much sense.

* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', the Declasse Asea should in theory be a common sight on the streets of Los Santos being based on the Chevrolet Aveo sedan. But in the original version of the game it only ever appears twice, once as an impossible to keep rental car, and again found parked at the end of a side-mission. If you do not take it after the latter, it's LostForever. Eventually it was made purchasable in ''Online'', and can be found on the streets in the Enhanced version of the game.

*** While doing "One Small Favour", you learn to craft an item that you cannot learn to make otherwise, despite the item itself being needed for two other quests ("Swan Song" and "Back To My Roots"), thus making One Small Favour a prerequisite for those quests. The item in question? ''A clay pot lid for those clay pots that you've been making since Level 1 Crafting''.

** The Tiny Plastic Sword is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. It's used to make quality drinks with relatively little investment. They are sold at the mall for 75,000,000 meat, largely for the same reasons used wrapping paper is expensive.

** Present bows aren't quite as a several example as used wrapping paper since they cost 3 million meat, but they're still fairly rare since they can only be obtained from small Crimbo pressies from Crimbo 2004 or from winning some of the Penguin Mafia raffles held during early 2008.

* In ''VideoGame/DayZ'', backpacks are considered extremely valuable because they allow you to carry much more equipment with you. While this is certainly a realistic benefit of a backpack in a survival scavenging scenario, the rarity of backpacks (especially in the original mod version) is pretty inexplicable. While backpacks are certainly handy to have, the odds that department stores would be stripped clean of backpacks following a societal collapse are very low, as people that are evacuating don't tend to ransack stores for backpacks. This is resolved somewhat in the Standalone version of the game where backpacks are more common (and can be crafted from basic materials), but you're still likely to be targeted and killed by other players just so they can upgrade their carrying capacity.

** Ghillie suits are another one, especially in the original mod, to the point that people will hunt you down just to get your ghillie suit because of how effectively you can hide while wearing one. Again, a ghillie suit would certainly be useful in a scenario where you're trying to remain hidden most of the time, but a ghillie suit isn't that hard to produce, and an effective one can be created from fairly basic components. This is actually addressed in the standalone version, where players can craft ghillie suits from burlap strips, which aren't that hard to find.
