* [[VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing]] has potions, skills, and equipment that you can use to increase or decrease the rate of combat encounters. There are also skills and items that can be used mid-combat to temporarily banish the particular type of enemy you're facing. Since you only have a limited number of adventures per day, changing the encounter rate depending on what would help you reach your current goal faster is a regular part of the game's strategy.

** ''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. It doesn't work on Challenge Quest enemies, even if you're higher level than them so that you can skip fighting them.

* In the remakes of the first two ''StarOcean" games for the PSP, opening the UMD tray would make it impossible for random battles to trigger, though you have to close it and re-open it every time you go from one screen to another.

* ''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.
