* The web-based {{MMORPG}} ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' features a whole series of trophies which can be collected by players to display at their campsite. They must be purchased with game money after earning them, and typically are awarded for feats that diverge sharply from the game's standard quest. The "Boss Boss" trophy, for example, requires one to defeat a quartet of specific {{boss|Battle}}es under conditions that both ramp up the difficulty of the fight ''and'' prevent you from gaining special bonus treasures they might drop.
** Annoying to collectors is that it's impossible to achieve 100% completion on any level, as [=KoL=]'s style of humor means event items and trophies are also affected. One such example would be the Pantsless trophy, which was only gained through pure luck, not having worn pants at rollover on a particular December 31st, midnight. It's said that only a handful of people can even come close, most of them powergamers who aren't affiliated with the coding team. That's right, not even the people that ''made the game'' have everything!
*** In fact, there exists absolutely no account that has every one-time trophy, barring a sudden re-implementation of said Pantsless trophy.

drop. Tattoos are the other main collectible, and also serve no purpose other than making your character page look cooler (with the exception of the Demon Tattoo, which protects you from self-damage when using a certain demon-fire buff).

** Many of the game's rare items, acquired through special one-time events or just trudging through a lot of ascensions/sidequests, are either literally useless, or effectively so because more powerful items can be had with less effort. The Plexiglass outfit, for example, requires you to ascend several times in "Oxycore," where you can't eat or drink anything to gain adventures (thus requiring many more real-life days than a regular ascension)... but thanks to PowerCreep, the once-impressive bonuses on the set's items are pretty much obsolete.

* Completing ''VideoGame/{{La-Mulana}}'''s [[BonusLevelOfHell Hell Temple]] rewards you with the treasure of Hell Temple, the [[spoiler:Skimpy Swimsuit]]. On top of having no effect on your gameplay, collecting it [[spoiler:exposes you to a [[FanDisservice picture of Lemeza wearing it]], followed by the sage Duracuets making fun of you. After all, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin didn't he warn you that you might regret seeing the treasure?]]]]

** ''Videogame/RockBand 2'' has the same feature, but applied to the Endless Setlist 2, which is all 84 on-disc songs in a row. Additionally, on the 360 and PS3 versions, there's an Achievement/Trophy called "{{Bladder of Steel}}" that you can get for completing Endless Setlist 2 without pausing or pressing the Guide/Home button.

** There's also the Golden Frying Pan, which is statistically identical in every way to the default melee weapons, but due to its sheer rarity is always worth at least a hundred dollars.

* ''VideoGame/Jak3Wastelander'' gives you Jak his outfit from the previous game if you clear every orb challenge. Not only does this require beating the game, some of the challenges are absolutely insane. And the outfit, of course, does nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* Similar to the ''Deadpool'' examples, ''VideoGame/EatLeadTheReturnOfMattHazard'' frequently parodies achievements/trophies along with other video game tropes. Often, you'll find yourself arbitrarily being given trophies for completing minigames or events ''that weren't even included in the final product'', among them an interrogation session.

** In the very first ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', beating the game with both the good (canon, Meryl) ending and the bad (Otacon) ending will give Snake a dinner jacket as an homage to JamesBond. In addition, Meryl will wear his Sneaking Suit and the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Cyborg Ninja]] will have his coloration changed to look like ComicBook/{{Spiderman}}.
