* 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.

** ''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 the online game ''{{Franchise/Neopets}}'', the rarest items initially were... food. The only place food was generated was at the food stores every five minutes. Unfortunately, they ran out in 15 seconds or so. You could feed your pets at the soup kitchen if you were poor enough, which led to lots of people in PerpetualPoverty just so they wouldn't have to spend all their money on an apple. And some of the rarest and most coveted items on the entire site are merely paintbrushes. Luckily, you can still get free food from the Giant Omelette, Giant Jelly, and once a month from a [[http://www.neopets.com/freebies hidden link]]

** 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.

** 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.
