** The human tournament is also played with- the purpose of fighting in it is to buy some time for another person. You don't have to win.
*** True, but winning gives you more opportunities to stall. You can even get [[GuideDangIt a unique item]] from one of the bosses by [[SheatheYourSword constantly defending and healing instead of attacking him]].

* The Franchise/{{Tales series}} almost always has an arena. It's rarely necessary to ''complete'' the tournament, though the BonusBoss therein often coughs up some sweet stuff if you beat it, but you are often required to participate in a fight or three when the plot calls.

* In ''SuikodenV'' the main character does ''not'' compete in the Sacred Games, a multi-layered fighting tournament meant to determine the future husband of the princess of Falena, despite its legendary status. Mainly this is because the main character is the prince of Falena and said princess is ''your little sister''. You ''are'' required to participate in a ceremonial opening match, though, which leads to a rather hilarious cutscene if you win when it turns out nobody told your sister that it was only ceremonial...

* While fighting in Trotmobile tournaments is part of ''SteambotChronicles''' WideOpenSandbox nature, a scenario pops up at around the halfway point where you have to participate in a single-elimination tournament. The final opponent you face is the undefeated Elder in his "White Phantom" Trotmobile.

* This trope is subverted in ''MegaManStarForce 3''; around the beginning of the game, everybody is talking about a Wizard tournament at the mall. When you go there, however, you see that Ace has already finished it, after which the Noise Wizards attack. Considering how similar the plot of the third game was to that of Battle Network's fourth, this could arguably be construed as a TakeThat to its hated predecessor.

* ''MechWarrior 2'' has many important missions for you to take part in. Spread evenly among the campaigns, however, are a few duel scenarios, called Trials, which you cannot avoid. And where your average mission is typically composed of several objectives of varying complexity, Trials consist of no more than fighting a single Mech vastly superior to your own (which is a lot easier than it sounds, thanks to ArtificialStupidity); you can choose to fight more opponents for more points, but doing so doesn't change subsequent gameplay.

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBY'', there is the Vytal Festival tournament, which was mentioned in the very first episode. It serves as a symbol of unity for the various nations of Remnant and a way for Hunters and Huntresses to prove their skills in a safe environment. The show finally gets around to it in Volume 3 (About three years later in real time, 6 months in-universe). However, [[spoiler: it is brought to an abrupt stop when, due to the manipulations of [[TheMole undercover villains]], one of the heroes accidentally [[KillTheCutie kills another]] in a fight that is broadcasted to the entire world. [[CerebusSyndrome Things go]] [[FromBadToWorse downhill from there]].]]

** ''StarOcean'' games as well. Considering the first Tales game essentially split off into the Tales and StarOcean series, they share quite a few common elements despite now being made by entirely different companies.
