* In the original ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'', you can purchase monster bait. It's mostly used as a [[GiveMeYourInventoryItem bribe]] to get past one of the dungeons, but if you use it on any other screen the monsters are drawn to it.

* There's a variety of ways to increase the rate of wild Pokémon encounters, most of which were added in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''. The move "Sweet Scent", items like "Sweet Honey" and the "White Flute", or tuning into the Johto Radio station while it's playing the Pokémon March; Pokémon with the "Illuminate" ability also increase the encounter rate, and even using the Bicycle or [[SprintShoes Running Shoes]] in games that have them will increase the encounter rate (an early NPC in [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver HeartGold and SoulSilver]] cautions that "the extra noise will attract them").

* In Zeboyd Games' ''BreathOfDeathVII'' and ''CthulhuSavesTheWorld'', the "Fight" command in the menu forces your party into a battle if you're outside a town. Since each zone has a finite number of RandomEncounters (20 for individual dungeons, and 200 for the OverworldNotToScale), this command can be used even if that cap has been used up, just in case you want to {{level grind|ing}} just before a tough boss battle. Alternatively, it can be used near a HealingCheckpoint to grind out all the Random Encounters at once with a handy recharge between battles, as well as making exploration easier once the cap has been reached.
