* ''SuperMarioGalaxy'' and ''SuperMarioGalaxy2'' has Star Chips (used to form Launch Stars) and Silver Stars (used to form Power Stars). * Cap'n Hawk's treasure map in ''UltimaVI'' is split into nine parts. Somewhat subverted in that it's possible to [[SequenceBreaking skip the entire quest]] -- possibly without realizing it.

* Done intentionally in ''VideoGame/DarkFall'' by George Crabtree. The piece of vellum containing the 12 symbols designed to re-trap the titular Dark Fall creature, was cut into individual pieces and scattered within the hotel, some of them given with instructions to the guests and staff staying there. Some of them were destroyed by the creature, but there are ways to recover them.

* The two Aura games, ''Fate of the Ages'' and ''The Sacred Rings'' involve several enchanted artifacts that form part of a control mechanism for the teleporters that the Keepers clan use to colonize other worlds. [[TheProphecy A legend stated]] that whoever brought the artifacts together could obtain [[WhoWantsToLiveForever eternal life]] and unimaginable power. Naturally, [[BigBad someone in the clan named Durad]] wanted to attain this gift for himself - or, as the sequel reveals, he was [[UnwittingPawn brainwashed into doing this]] for the [[BiggerBad war-mongering Shadow Legion.]] So the protagonist, Umang was sent by the Keepers to collect and assemble these artifacts before Durad did. [[spoiler: Strangely, at the end of the second game, though, after getting rid of the Shadow Legion, [[InvertedTrope he took out his crowbar and ''destroyed'' the very thing he spent the first game putting together]], and continued on like nothing happened. There was a third sequel meant to explain what was to become of Umang later on, but it is currently in DevelopmentHell.]] * In ''VideoGame/Lighthouse:TheDarkBeing'', Lyril attempts to tell the player that the Priests built the six parts for a [[ChekhovsGun "Particle-ionizing vacuum cannon"]], the only thing that could capture and incapacitate the titular [[BigBad Dark Being]]. The Priests were en route to put the gun together themselves, but they died with one of the parts on board when their ship sank, so [[ItsUpToYou naturally you have to]] find and assemble the gun yourself.

One of the saboteurs initially tried to remove her components from the ship entirely, but security systems got in the way, so they were conveniently hidden within the ship instead. Not that that means they're easy to reach, mind you.
