* The plot to ''{{Rastan}}'' is not only practically irrelevant but inconsistent between versions. In the original ArcadeGame, he's winning a bounty a princess placed on a dragon. In the UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem version, he's out to [[SaveThePrincess rescue her]]. In the UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}} version, he's defending his land against an EvilSorcerer. The {{Non Linear Sequel}}s don't help sort matters out.

* ''VideoGame/{{Karnov}}'': "Get the map that leads to treasure" was the plot of the ArcadeGame. The Famicom version, which had a different FinalBoss, also had original cutscenes that had Karnov be on a MissionFromGod and made no mention of any treasure; these cutscenes were entirely removed from the US localization.

* ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior'' starts out with you taking down Zilla's men when they try to do a ContractOnTheHitman on you for leaving Zilla Enterprises, but then has you taking them down to avenge Master Leep and save the world. The 2013 reboot averts this.

* Georges Méliès, being a magician interested in illusions, was really more interested creating a visual spectacle. The "plot" of films such as his famous ''Film/ATripToTheMoon'' mainly served to provide a context for his then-revolutionary special effects.

* The plot of ''VideoGame/MagicalBattleArena'' involves how all magical worlds are connected to a single magical source that lets them exist and how said source is verging on collapse, requiring the BigBad to force several powerful magic-users of different worlds to fight one another so she can select one to act as a BarrierMaiden [[AntiVillain and prevent the destruction of the multiverse]]. This plot only exists to justify why [[{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse]], [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura Kinimoto]], [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]], and several other {{Magical Girl}}s and female mages [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny are blasting the crap out of one another]].

** In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' it's DoctorDoom [[VillainTeamUp teaming up]] with [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Wesker]] and gathering villains from both companies to take over both Worlds. That said, they are giving a little more effort than in ''2''.

* {''VideoGame/{Warframe}}'', in its early stages, was about you, a space ninja, going around and beating up an oppressive empire, a bunch of profit-worshipping merchants, and a plague of infested members from both other factions. As the game has updated and gone further into beta development, however, it has slowly started moving away from this trope and created a genuinely interesting story about the Tenno and Orokin, and the deadly consequences of both on the solar system.
