Added DiffLines:

* Parappa's story in ''VideoGame/UmJammerLammy'' pretty much consists of him and his friend searching around the town trying to find a good guitar. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation There isn't even any attempt to connect the story with the gameplay]], both of them having absolutely nothing to do with each other (or even any characters in common besides Parappa).

* Similarly, every story in Wally Wood's ''[[ComicBook/SallyForthWood Sally Forth]]'' was an excuse to feature sexy naked women to entertain the US servicemen reading them.

Added DiffLines:

* According to the author of ''FanFic/FantasyOfUtterRidiculousness'', he wrote the story with the sole intent of having [[WesternAnimation/MegasXLR Megas]] fight against Suika Ibuki. In a twist on the above justifications, Megas's placement in Gensokyo was the fault of the Watatsuki sisters; Yukari's involvement was accidental at best.

* The first game in the ''VideoGame/DeadlyRoomsOfDeath'' series is basically, a king's dungeon is full of monsters and he's paying you to kill them so his prisoners can receive their torture in a clean and safe environment. However, the second game takes the question of why the dungeon if full of puzzles built around the monsters, and turns the quest for the answer into a KudzuPlot spanning two more sequels, a prequel, and several DLC level sets.

* While the original ''VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon'' trilogy did feature a cast of memorable, unique characters, the plots generally boiled down to "Hey, look, there's a bad guy doing a bunch of bad guy things! Now go kill everything in your path while collecting gems and X type of collectible!" Averted with ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' reboot. Of course, [[BaseBreaker whether or not this was a good thing is]] ''[[BrokenBase still]]'' [[BrokenBase up to debate]].

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'':
** ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'': Crocodiles have stolen your bananas. Get your bananas back. Cranky Kong had to point this out.
** ''Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.'': Donkey Kong has been kidnapped by crocodiles. Are you a bad enough monkey to rescue Donkey Kong?

** The original ''Donkey Kong'' game - "Some big, weird animal from a distant land has stolen your girlfriend. Get your girlfriend back." The big weird animal in this case being Donkey Kong, and Mario has to do the saving, so maybe Donkey Kong as a Jerkass makes a bit more sense?
