* The Mirror of Zeme in ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}: The Ark of Napishtim'' is broken into three pieces by Ernst's three Fairies in their plot to revive the Ark. Another variation is Sara's crystal in the first game, which initially allows you to use the teleportation statues in the [[TempleOfDoom Shrine]], then you combine it with another object in Darm Tower, which allows you to use the [[MagicalMysteryDoors warp mirrors]]. The second game has the Dreaming Stone Idol that you have to use to un-petrify the people in the underground hideout, which is initially missing an eye.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' does this thrice on its own! The boss key of the second dungeon is split up int three pieces, and when assembled, it gives you access to a Fused Shadow (the first set of PlotCoupons). Then you have to reassemble the Mirror of Twilight in the second stage of the game. And that's not to mention the ludicrous number of pieces of heart in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* The forevermids of Tarana in ''ComicBook/BlackScience'' are powerful artifacts in themselves, but when combined become the omnimid. While it's never seen in action, everyone thinks it's pretty sweet.

* ''Zelda'' employs this trope in practically every game. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' does this twice by itself!
** Three times, actually. The boss key of the second dungeon is split up as well, and when assembled, it gives you access to another piece of a bigger and even more dismantled MacGuffin. Not to mention the ludicrous number of pieces of heart in the game.
** There's even one with ''a song'' where one character only remembers the first few notes, and the rest must be learned from someone else.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/DeltoraQuest'' features a belt that protects the land with seven gems, which each become scattered across Deltora. The three protagonists must rescue the gems from their respective [[MacGuffinGuardian MacGuffin Guardians]], and then find the heir to Deltora to wear the belt -- with absolutely no leads. Fortunately, [[spoiler: the heir is [[MacGuffinPersonReveal a lot closer to home]] than they originally thought.]]
