** ''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.

** On a NewGamePlus, you can buy Red Carpet, which removes encounters ''completely.''
* ''VideoGame/{{Tradewinds}} Legends'' has an item that causes you to encounter fewer pirates (but more storms).
* Repulse Water in the ''RaidouKuzunoha'' games. Some demons come equipped with the "Intimidate" skill, which works exactly like the Water and can be used infinitely.

* ''[[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.
