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]

* ''AtlanticaOnline'' usually links the chests to quests or a treasure map.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games (from ''Explorers'' onwards), Pokemon will occasionally drop treasure chests in dungeons (and ''Gates to Infinity'' had a whole minigame about them). Each game has an NPC to open them for you, but none of them offer any explanation as to who is making the chests and putting treasure in them, why they're doing so, and why the chests are found in dungeons.

* ''GuildWars'' gets fairly ridiculous about this. Each region has its own kind of chest, with a unique key that must be purchased in nearby towns, and with unique kinds of loot. They can be found literally ''anywhere.'' While it's rather implausible in places like the frozen seas and forests of Cantha, it's downright ridiculous in the various {{Hell}} analogues.

* Particularly odd in the MMO ''LaTale'', since treasure chests can ''spawn'' almost anywhere on a given map. Where do they keep appearing from?
* ''GaiaOnline'' features multiple varieties. On the main site, and all of the flash games except for ''zOMG!'', you may occasionally run into a "Flying Magical Giftbox" or "Enchanted Chest", which must be caught by clicking on it, and grants you a random rare piece of clothing or furniture, depending on the color of the container being opened. In ''zOMG!'', inexplicable treasure chests (and crates, and baskets, and on one occasion a safe) are placed around the map. Opening them can grant a large number of regular drops, or (if your level is too high) nothing at all. Judging by their appearance, these chests appear to be Animated, and it is implied the safe was placed at its location by [[spoiler:[=NeXuS=] Corp]], but since you never see any of the chests ''move'', there's no explanation as to what they hell they're doing there.

* The ''{{Pokemon}}'' games (well, the portable ones, at least) leave ubiquitous orbs all over the place. Perhaps they are some kind of item ball?

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' has treasure chests in unlikely places underground and in [[BeneathTheEarth the caverns]]. Who placed them there is unknown, and many of them don't contain anything really valuable.

* Averted and lampshaded in ''A Nightmare in Sunnydale California''. When [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Dean Winchester]] starts rooting through a trashcan during a cutscene and an amnesiac [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy Summers]] expresses disgust, he points out that they're going to need anything they can scavenge because it's not like this trope is going to be in action. Which is ironic because due to their being trapped in a nightmare by [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Kruger]], it very well ''could'' have justification for being used.

* Lampshaded in ''Chain of Oblivion'' upon opening one of several chests in the starting town.
-->'''Reinhardt:''' You ever wonder who puts these here?\\
'''Siegmund:''' Don't know. I wouldn't put it past the Crazy Guy, though.
