* ''{{Neptunia}}'' seems to be playing with this trope. When you start a new game, you get a trophy. When you first used Neptune's hammer, you get a trophy. Pretty much ''doing anything'' seems to give you a trophy.

Different from BraggingRightsReward in that you do not receive any at least nominally useful items; these have no other function than looking pretty. However, since these often come after some sort of high achievement, the reward you get ''is'' the bragging rights. The Cosmetic Award is just something you can get a picture of to show them when they say 'Prove it'.

Added DiffLines:

As usual, TropesAreNotBad. A cosmetic reward will feel just as enjoyable for the player as a non-cosmetic one, and without infringing on the gameplay. This is important for games that focus primarily on player versus player matches, since it will feel unfair getting killed if the ground is not even due to rewards that affect gameplay.

** ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor - Pacific Assault'' (for the PC, anyway) gives you souvenirs from your various missions (canteens, a scrap of Japanese flag, an altimeter, etc.) for fulfilling a bonus objective. Selecting one will replay a nice, echo-ridden version of the audio from the time it was presumably picked up. Military scrapbooking!

* Completing all 80 stages of ''VideoGame/WanganMidnightMaximumTune 3'''s Story Mode without losing a single stage rewards you with the title "Undefeated Highway Dominator" and a bonus soundtrack. This is in mild contrast to ''Maximum Tune 2'', in which completing all 80 stages undefeated rewarded you with an extra tuning point for your car without having to [[ForcedLevelGrinding drive a total of 5,000 km]], whereas in [=WMMT3=], losing in Story Mode has no bearing on whether your car gets completely tuned.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'' and its ExpansionPack have a set of medals in the skirmish screen, obtained by doing things such as beating the campaigns (bronze, silver and gold for the difficulties, respectively), building tanks and superweapons or beating all skirmish maps. The medals themselves do absolutely nothing. There is also a pre-order bonus that adds special flags to your Command Centers and gives you yet another medal, and again they do nothing. Worst of all, these can also be achieved via editing a particular file or your registry.

* {{Newgrounds}} also has an achievement system now, which currently only certain game makers have access to.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has a particularly extreme example: there are ''900'' Korok seeds hidden in the world that you can collect. If you find all of them and bring them to Hestu, you get [[spoiler: a piece of crap. Literally. He gives you a poo-shaped seed amulet with no real use other than letting you watch his dance whenever you want.]]
