* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' has treasure boxes just floating in the air that can only be reached with Mario's jumping ability, which is similar to the "?" blocks that the Mario series is known for. The boxes can be found anywhere, even inside certain towns. One NPC, who has a few treasure boxes in his house, [[WhatTheHellHero will call you out for stealing his things]] after you helped him get back to his house. He'll act relieved if you don't take his stuff.

* The eponymous ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' had a token Poorly Locked Treasure Chest placed right in the middle of their warcamp for no reason whatsoever apart for serving as an incentive for the adventurers to raid the camp. A GenreSavvy goblin confronted the seer of the tribe about it and tried to reason that if they had to flaunt the chest like that, maybe they could at least ''use'' some of the magical items stashed inside to repel the impending attack. But respected customs are not to be discarded so easily just because it "makes sense", you know!

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' eschews the traditional Zelda formula of linear dungeons, thus treasure chests can be found nearly everywhere in the open world with little to no explanation, such as being underwater, buried in the ground, etc. Some enemy camps also have chests that won't open unless you defeat all the monsters in that camp.

** ''[[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.
