** ''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?

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* In ''{{Drakengard}}'', there are chests sitting in the midst of [[CopyAndPasteEnvironments barren, empty fields.]] What's even more bizarre is once you pilfer the chests, they ''sink through the ground into parts unknown''. [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality Blinking out would have been acceptable,]] but I guess the game's programmers felt like creeping the player out if they bothered to watch.

Added DiffLines:

** While the average boss has its treasure on its corpse, some bosses (usually more monstrous ones, or ones that aren't bosses in the traditional sense, such as an airship battle) will instead have its treasure stored in a chest. Sometimes this is justified as a cache of treasures kept within whatever stronghold the players are assaulting (that is associated with the boss purely for gameplay purposes), but other times the cache will materialize out of nowhere, or otherwise still be in a strange place for whatever explanation is given for it.

Probably the most ridiculous manifestation of this trope comes in instances where ''[[MoneySpider monsters]]'' [[RandomDrop drop chests]]. It isn't so ridiculous for bigger baddies who could just swallow whole convoys, boxes and all, but what about [[MoneySpider smaller creatures]] which could fit into the [[{{Hammerspace}} boxes themselves]]? [[note]]One possible FanWank: In the game world, [[GoryDiscretionShot those aren't chests you're opening]].[[/note]]
