** Exception: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' predominantly uses gil, but judging by how Prompto wonders in the first chapter of the game what a "gil" is, and Ignis surmising that their own money isn't good from now on, it's safe to conclude that Insomnia has its own currency. In practice, however, this is just used as a justification for why your characters aren't filthy rich from the get-go and why you need to grind for your cash, and we're never even introduced to the possibility of simply changing money.

* The Space Empire Zangyack in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' enforces the use of the Zagin amongst its conquered planets, which is also the basis of the Gokaigers' bounties. However, Earth remains unconquered and retains use of all its contemporary currencies, such that 1 Zagin can be exchanged for 360 Japanese yen.

* Fol in the ''StarOcean'' series is, in fact, ''intergalactic'' currency. Whether you're in a primitive planet based on 12th century or in a super-advanced planet, you use Fol to pay for your items.

* The Space Stage in ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' is a particularly {{egregious}} example: every space-faring civilization in the galaxy uses the same unit of currency. Which wouldn't be too bad, except that this includes your civilization ''before you've made contact with anyone else''.

* Downplayed in ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'', but only very slightly: you will come across multiple currency types in containers and on corpses, but upon collection they are all converted to the game's single currency used by all merchants.

** It's not explained how coins found in ancient ruins that predate the Septim dynasty are usable in trade as though they are Septims themselves, though it is likely just a [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality simplification]]; presumably, any such coins are valued to the Septim and traded accordingly.

* The game Witch Hunter: the Invisible World throws its hands up in the air and decides tales of terror in its setting of late 17th century alternate Earth don't need to be bogged down in how many ounces of gold to the guilder and whether the colony of Virginia has bank notes yet. The universal currency, "Resources," assumes that during downtime, a Witch Hunter is taking care of such trivial matters as exchanging currencies, bartering with his or her neighbors, and so on.
