Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' has the skill Estoma Sword, which banishes all encounters on the world map and if your level is higher than the enemies on the field, you can force them away by hitting them with your weapon. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything It doesn't work on Challenge Quest enemies, even if you're higher level than them so that you can skip fighting them.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has "Repel" items, which prevent wild Pokémon encounters as long as the lead party member is a higher level than what you're encountering. It will not, however, avoid battles against other Pokémon Trainers. Generation II had the Pokémon Lullaby music on the Johto Radio Station; Generation III added the Black Flute for reducing the encounter rate, and Gen VI has the Stealth O-Power that reduces the rate. A few Pokémon abilities (like "Intimidate") can also reduce the encounter rate.

* ''[[MegaManBattleNetwork Mega Man Battle Network]]'' has [=SneakRun=] ([=ShinobiDash=] in the Japanese versions). It only repels weak normal enemies (Defined by how high your base max HP is compared to their's), however, which makes it handy for encountering the multitudes of bosses that show up randomly.

* The Holy Bottles in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', which either prevent random encounters, or make monsters run away from you, depending on the game. Certain food items in ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' also gift the player with reduced encounters as a side effect.

* The Holy Bottles in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', which either prevent random encounters, or make ''Franchise/TalesSeries''. They eliminate RandomEncounters in the games that have them. In games where monsters are visible on the map, using a Holy Bottle either makes it so enemies don't notice you at all or run away from you, depending on the game. and also makes them respawn slower. Certain food items in ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' also gift the player with reduced encounters as a side effect.
