* The Magimel Brothers from [[VideoGame/ShadowHearts Shadow Hearts: Covenant]]. Their profile explicitly stated that they "go anywhere, no matter how dangerous" to offer their service to whoever might need them. [[OnlySaneMan Yuri]] is continuously baffled at them appearing in the most unlikely of places, including an otherworldly fortress raised by UsefulNotes/RasputinTheMadMonk, an actual powerful warlock on this continuity, to the ruins of an burned down monastery deep within the Earth and a facsimile of Japanese Hell created by an Taoist adept. Only Gerard returned in From the New World and along with his boyfriend Bughend, play the same role.

* ''Tunnels of Doom,'' a dungeon crawl game for the venerable [[UsefulNotes/TI99 TI99]] home computer, featured item shops in the 4th and 8th levels of the dungeon. There was no explanation for why there were merchants deep within a cavern full of hostile creatures, but you often needed the new items so badly you didn't question it.

* The Annas from ''Franchise/FireEmblem'', who basically appear in every game not only as the "mascots" but as the ones handling all the Secret Shops. One of them can be recruited as a playable character in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' [[spoiler: and even become a LoveInterest if she marries the male Avatar]]; others are seen handling the gates to the Outrealms as well as several other spots in them.
* Warriv from ''VideoGame/{{Diablo II}}'' is a merchant who ''badly'' needs to go to Lut Gholeim but the path is blocked by monsters, so he hangs around the Rogues's camp while hoping your PlayerCharacter can undo the mess. Once you do, he takes you with him in his trip.

* [[MeaningfulName Charlieton]] in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' is a sleazy merchant who was also a clear case of AdamSmithHatesYourGuts. He usually hangs out in Rogueport, where the stuff he sells is usually worthless junk. (Every so often he's got something exclusive or at a good price, though, so he's worth checking out from time to time.) However, in the Pit of 100 Trials, he shows up from time to time in certain rooms to sell you various items that may be useful at inflated prices. The lower you go, the more dangerous it gets, and the more likely it is you'll be running out of healing items. ''[[GenreSavvy He knows this.]]'' By the time you get near the bottom, he'll be selling items for twenty times what they'd be worth in a normal shop. Since you're likely to be maxed out in coins yet an inch near death at this point, ''these items might actually be worthwhile.''
