** In the Nightborne recruitment scenario Alleria, who is connected to the Void, triggers a void creatures outbreak which results in her banishment from Quel'Thalas. However, nobody would raise an eyebrow should the PlayerCharacter be a shadow priest, who are very likely to wield a [[EldritchAbomination sentient Void-serving dagger]] well-known for being TheCorrupter on the scale it nearly drove an entire civiliaztion to extinction.

* In the story of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', the PlayerCharacter is forced into exile to Ishgard during the events of ''Heavensward'' [[spoiler:following their being framed in the sultana's death]]. Outside of the story, however, the player is free to travel between Ishgard and the rest of Eorzea.

This is later explained as [[spoiler:the leaders of Limsa Lominsa and Gridania reassuring everyone that your character is a-okay and the citizens of Ul'dah left in the dark and too scared to let the Crystal Braves know of your existence.]]

* In ''VideoGame/FredbearAndFriends'', the two best hiding spots - under the desk and inside a bathroom stall - cannot be entered outside of two specific cutscenes, even if the animatronics' inability to bend and disinterest in opening doors would allow Thomas to easily pass the six hours he believes he needs there.

* The ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series has an odd case of this. From the very beginning, Princess Peach has been the DistressedDamsel... but on almost every occasion she's been playable, she's been quite capable, whether as a fighter, athlete, or go-kart driver, and largely a match for Mario... which raises the question of how she continues to be kidnapped and require Mario to save her when she's as good as him and more than capable of defeating swarms of angry Koopas or even Samus Aran when she needs to. At this point, Nintendo seems to simply have fun with its artifacts.

* In the "Clucking Doom" stage from ''VideoGame/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', the level's final round has the player and their opponents try to fight each other while jumping across buses fleeing from a giant chicken. In story mode, the cutscene that plays upon beating the level shows Billy, Mandy, Irwin, and Grim on one of the buses regardless of whether or not the player has made it to that part of the level by the time they beat all the opponents.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'', despite being told that only Naga's power (and therefore only Julia) can beat Julius, you can kill him (or at least land the killing blow) with anyone, even your dancer.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', a support conversation between Garcia and Dozla has the two talking about their failed attempt to practice archery, including Dozla trying to swing his bow like an axe, and Garcia putting the arrow in backwards. The two decide archery isn't for them. This is ignoring that it's very possible that Garcia promoted to a Warrior by this point, and can use a bow quite competently.

** In the overall series your chance to land a critical hit is usually displayed during battle. In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', during the scripted battle between [[spoiler:Khan Basilio]] and [[spoiler:Walhart]], each had a 0% critical chance. They both landed a critical hit on the other.

*** Similarly, Magneton is said to be the result of three Magnemites being linked together by a powerful magnetic force. Three sparate Magnemites are not required for obtaining a Magneton. Diglett and Dugtrio are more ambiguous, as the Pokedex entries seem a bit indecisive as to whether or not Dugtrio has three heads or is a case of TheDividual. However, they are often claimed to be triplets.

* ''{{VideoGame/Persona 5}}'' has a strange, likely oversight'd moment; by the time you make it to the 7th Dungeon, you know who The Traitor is ([[spoiler: Akechi]]). The 7th Dungeon's "Time is Up" cutscene involves The Traitor invading your hideout. The Traitor is also the last midboss of the 7th Dungeon, and once you beat them, circumstances arise (Namely, [[spoiler: Akechi pulls a last second HeelFaceTurn and apparently goes down in a HeroicSacrifice to save your party from an ambush. His confidant even hits 10 right there.]]) that remove The Traitor from the story. The segregation arises from the time up cutscene not changing whatsoever after this event.
