** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'' has, in addition to the usual chests, touristy "stamp stations" scattered around the world for you to find. Most are in very illogical locations, such as a secret pirate hideout, an active volcano, or a temple full of homicidal skeletons and sandtraps. The ones in ''logical'' locations usually require incredible feats to reach them (riding birds by lassoing the big sticks they inexplicably carry, in more than one case). To add further confusion, Link's old-geezer roommate somehow knows exactly how many stamp stations there are, despite having never visited any of them... not even the one 50 feet from his house!

* Averted in ''VideoGame/TheEnchantedCave''. There are treasure chests, but they were put there by the BigBad to lure adventurers.

** Never mind why the "large battered chest" is there, the big question is what we should fry it in.

** Well, the game's setting does take place in a fictional planet called "[[WhatDidYouExpectWhenYouNamedIt Pandora]]" so this could be a JustifiedTrope.

*Lampshaded in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' when the four go through Gothmarik Citadel and actively wonder why the bad guy who'd been inhabiting the place left all this treasure lying around. The reason? A lot of it is fake, though some isn't.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': While you do play as a PhantomThief exploring a MentalWorld, there's still no real explanation for why a museum, or subway station, or cruise liner, or ''a bank with actual vaults'', would bother securing valuables in treasure chests you can lockpick.

* ''VideoGame/SkylandersImaginators'' gives you Imaginite chests with new character pieces at a constant pace. Some of them are hidden in caves or tucked away in the levels, which makes sense. It makes less sense when enemies you run into on the M.A.P. are "carrying" a chest larger than their actual bodies. As for the chests that appear when you achieve level goals, reach other progress milestones, or ''pick a lock correctly'' ... magic?

* ''VideoGame/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has a series of hidden treasure chests in each level. Some of the chests contain a set item, which can boost a character's stats and make the character even stronger. You need to use each character to uncover the chests.

* ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'', much like the Zelda series, has chests that appear out of nowhere when you vacuum up a boss ghost. They can contain normal chest-y items, like keys or money, but sometimes have bits of Mario's clothing; why some person and/or ghost decided to put Mario's shoe in a magically-appearing chest is anyone's guess.
