* ''VideoGame/TheHauntedRuins'': There's only one of these shopkeepers, but she keeps showing up lower and lower down. As she does, her sprite [[GlamourFailure slowly shifts]] (and she keeps insisting that the change is all in your head.)



* ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' has a LIMB clinic semi-hidden within TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. Mostly [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because the area only became a "dungeon" when an event caused most of the population there to go insane, and the shopkeeper managed to barricade herself. Transactions are all computer-based, which explains why the shopkeeper simply can't give you free merchandise. Still, it does come off as a bit silly.

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Symphony of the Night]]''. The shopkeeper is Dracula's librarian and an old friend to Alucard. Note that he won't help Richter at all.

** In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash'', there is a Toad café deep within [[RemilitarizedZone Fort Cobalt]], Ludwig's HQ. There is in-game [[JustifiedTrope justification]] for it: The Toad who runs the place is undercover, selling drinks and food to the Shy Guys there while slipping information about Ludwig's plans, and its weaknesses, to Mario.

* The final dungeon of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' has one, as well as in a few other dungeons. However, considering that the towns in the game also obviously has a shop and is filled with RandomEncounters, every shop may in fact be a DungeonShop.
* Johnny owns the Express Mart which appears in almost every dungeon of the second game in the ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' series, even when [[spoiler: the Embryon die and the final dungeon is the surface of the sun, he dies too and still sets up shop]].
* ''Series/Persona'' has several examples in each game. There's a door to the Velvet Room in some dungeons in Persona 2 and Persona 1, 2 and 4 have [=NPC=]s in dungeons that will heal you for a price[[note]]Trish the Pixie and the Fox heal you for ¥100 per HP/SP. You can get a discount from the Fox through the Hermit Social Link, though. Trish, however, is stated in-universe to be conning you because she was so greedy about money and forced to watch over the healing spring.

* While not particularly prone to appearing in proper dungeons, wandering merchants can appear in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas.'' In the latter, they have established trade routes that take them through some of the more dangerous areas of the Mojave and occasionally pit them against some of its myriad threats. It's not uncommon to exhaust yourself fighting a den of nightstalkers in a canyon, then turn around to find a merchant caravan behind the next rock, ready to sell you food, ammo, and stimpaks (at a price). Wandering merchants are not particularly powerful fighters on their own, however, but they'll usually travel in numbers and often have much better armed mercenary bodyguards accompanying them.

* Osohe Castle in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' features a small shop run by a ghost. Since there is no money system at that point in the game, you buy stuff with rotten eclairs (the ghosts' favourite food) instead. One such item, the Rope Snake, is required to proceed through the castle.

\n[[AC:ShootEmUp]]* ''VideoGame/{{Chantelise}}'': There's a fisherman you can trade fish to, that appears in the first dungeon after you progress far enough in the game, and in the 60-floor Survival Dungeon, at the lower levels, there's a merchant to buy/sell things to on every 10th floor.
* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopeOfTheSky'': There's a merchant that sells you things at the beginning of a monster-infected corrupted area.

* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein2009}} Wolfenstein]]'', BJ Blazkowicz encounters a black marketeer just prior to entering the zeppelin hangar[[hottip:*:in the middle of a heavily defended airfield]] who takes time from looting supplies to offer BJ pick of his find. Somewhat justified by all the intelligence BJ has found ranting about supply thefts and black market infiltration, though the fact that it's possible to have multiple firefights within sight of the black marketeer still tends to stretch the credibility of this one.

* One long dungeon in the first ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'' game contains... [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment a bakery]], in which you must buy cakes and return them to town to progress the story.

* Hammer sets up shops like this in the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' games. Seeing as how he's a former military man and is seen with a bazooka at one point, it's fair to assume he can take care of himself.

* The CatGirl Koma in ''Super Robot Taisen: EndlessFrontier'' games has a habit of setting up shops in the middle of dungeons, although depending on her mood and current employer, she might want to fight you first. Justified in the first game due to her being a competent fighter as stated above and in the second game, she's travelling with you. She almost gets left behind after temporarily seperating from the rest of the party to peddle her wares when the {{Load Bearing Boss}}'s defeat takes effect though.
